Wow. Trump working with the South Koreans. AGAIN! And behind Americans backs this time. Not saying ♻ is the way to go on this one. But ♻ has always been the way to go. I'm not going to wonder whats next on this one. I have to wrap my head around the fact that only one of my parents is forcing me to buy a new bird, after the emotional tear of seeing a eleven year old cannary pass. #1 comment, again
I facing problems during calls. during call if any notification comes then huge sound is coming which is big distrubance during any call. Kindly confirm how we can stop this notification sound during calls
Hate this new Oreo. Just changed to it this week and my phone battery drains quick. It also now has to show every second that Sprint Hub is running, mobile installer, and 1 other app. It says they are always running on the background. I can force stop, but then they appear again. Anyway way to go back to previous platform?
Android 8.0 offers users the latest in restricted and truncated app usage! Whether it's Call Recording apps or taking screen shots on YOUR smart phone, Oreo 8.0 makes absolutely sure that you can't use any app from any developer! But that's not all! On certain phones, most notably Google's own devices (Pixel, Pixel 2) and a few others like the Motorola Moto Z² Force, owners of Roku and Amazon Fire sticks will also be restricted from using screen casting to these devices from your smart phone! Why? This is done to force users to use Google's own Chrome Cast! Chrome Cast is a subscription based device which keeps charging, and charging and charging users. Forget those other devices you may already be happily satisfied with or even love! Let Google extort you into using their devices and paying them more money!
So, if you were happy with your old phone and the expanded features of previous Android OS versions, think again! Prepared to be blown away by exactly how much you can't do anymore! Fewer features! Built in exclusivity to Google's own stuff! Zero access to certain types of apps (Wich developers have been particularly coded out of working around) and more!
If increased efeciency, expanded usage, and more person control over your device is what you want, forget it! Android 8.0 offers to take away so much more than it gives back to users! Enjoy!
I still wish they would change all the obvious things that iOS does BETTER.. like.. swipe to delete a message (using galaxy S8) or how about leave a group in sms!? Maybe it is mostly just the hardware designers I should blame and not so much the iOS.. Even the phone size is EXTREMELY uncomfortable.. anyone who doesnt have long or huge hands knows what Im talking about.. Trying to extend my thumb twice its length to reach the notifications bar.. I wish android would just follow in the foot steps of iOS when it comes to interface.. so incredibly user friendly and simple. Also I love the iOS emojis much better, they look more real and have no altered look. If you want a sad face, you use the sad face. Android.. heres a cartoon blob.. Why.. I mean its not a bad idea just make all your emoji changes add ons for the OS not the pre installed keyboard.. but hey.. Android will always have more abilities than iOS. XD
i remember using some xposed tools back on my LG G3 that enabled PIP for pretty much any app.. let's just hope such plugins won't be blocked by Oreo so we may be able to work around these YouTube-Red restrictions
