Android P aka Android OS v9.0 is the next version of Android that is being beta tested by Google and a few other OEMs at the moment, prior to its full commercial release. In case you are wondering about the OS, know that there will be a number of big changes this year and they can be summarized as follows.


Overhauled Navigation System


Android P is taking a gesture-based route to navigation, so check out the following gesture commands to get an idea of what to expect.

·         Access to the recent apps tab will be granted by a swipe up

·         Long swipe/double quick swipe to access the app drawer

Also, the back button will only appear where applicable.


A More Colorful and Faster UI


Circular and colorful icons are immediately visible on the Developer Previews and the improved animation system makes it feel superfast.


Better Battery Life


Every version of the new Android OS promises this and while it might be true, we are not sure if the new OS versions really do make too much of a difference though. Nevertheless, Android P promises to maximize your battery life through machine learning. Adaptive brightness, adaptive battery use  and limited CPU usage are all things that Google is aiming for with this version of the OS.


App Actions and Slices


If you use an app for a certain purpose often on your phone, App Actions will recommend and create shortcuts that will help you do it faster the next time around. Slices on the other hand is an even more advanced functionality of the Google Assistant that will make more intelligent decisions, based on your voice commands.


Other Improvements


There are also multiple other minor but helpful improvements to the OS as well, like an instant screenshot editor and pop-up zoom while highlighting text. The fact that volume changes made via hardware button is now always mapped to media by default is a very welcome change.


Third Party Smartphones are Also getting Beta This Time


Unlike every other year, Google has surprisingly opened up the early access Beta doors to Sony, Nokia, Xiaomi, Vivo, OnePlus and Oppo via Project Treble. Just in case you are wondering, yes, it's definitely available on all the Pixels as well!


That about wraps it up for now, but this is far from being the complete list. We will keep you updated once the final version releases in August (hopefully).

solid explorers

File Explorers are a very Important Apps, one of the first thing you install when you buy a New Phone or right after a factory reset. Solid Explorer 2.1 Stable, featured a slick dual-pane drawer, Material Design UI and an extensive features list.

Solid Explorer 2.1.0 looks completely amazing because it includes Full Material Design UI and various bug fixes. It has all of the Lollipop animations we've come to expect, along with a proper full-height navigation menu, floating action button, and colored status bar. The default blue/orange UI can be changed to whatever you like in the settings. You even get animated thumbnails for video. That's cool, but I could see it ending up a little annoying long-term.

ambient lollipop

 

With the updated lockscreen notifications in Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google has now also added a feature called Ambient display mode. This will allow the phone to light up the display when notifications arrive. Even better, it will wake the screen when you pick up the device, similar to the Moto X.

The feature was spotted in the Preview build of Lollipop and it was running fine on the Nexus 4. Hopefully, Google does NOT limit it to just the Nexus 6 or Nexus 9 (since it has an AMOLED display, which works better for these things) and brings it to all Nexus devices.
