What's your favorite new Android P feature?
The new looks, bro
"Notch" designs support
New notification style
The privacy enhancements
The dual camera app support
Native HDR video and high-efficiency media formats
Indoor position tracking
Other (sound off in the comments)
Yesterday, we did a review of Google's just-released Android P developer preview, detailing all the new features that may come with the final Android 9.0 release. These include new visuals, transitional animations, notification layout, privacy enhancements, wide color and high efficiency media format support, and a whole lot more.
We were curious which of the chief new Android P features that got revealed in the developer preview has piqued your interest the most, and, as you can see from the poll results above, the new looks and privacy improvements take the cake, followed by native HDR support and the new rich notification previews.
If the update still feels a bit underwhelming to you, it's because Google doesn't want Samsung owners to be frustrated has been introducing front-facing features that manufacturer's overlays have had long before this or that Android edition.
Still, Google always outs system features that no other phone maker can intro, like Project Treble that is supposed to make slow software updates a thing of the past for phones that ship with Oreo out of the box, like the new Galaxy S9. For that reason alone, it's worth paying attention to new Android versions, albeit not to the extent it used to be just two years ago.

I wonder why so many people chose "The new looks". Except for "clean android" phones, nobody gets the "new look". + On Android most of the "look" you can change by yourself.

Can't say I like the new rainbow look of the settings menu. I prefer The Oreo version. And the pull-down notifications shade look kinda like... Dare I say: iOS 10...ish? It's not the worst thing in the world (That honor goes to iOS 11's Action Center). In fact, it looks 'somewhat' better than Oreo's. But its certainly not the prettiest thing in the world and not what I've come to expect from Ol' Google. Anyhow, it's just an initial stage beta. So things certainly will change in the upcoming months! For better... Or worse! Anyhow, fingers crossed for The 'Droid P and iOS 12. G'Day!
