      @Cheong Keng Seng This is what makes me laugh about Pixel folk always bragging about their day 1 updates. Their so called updates are just catching up to things I've had for sometimes more than a year.

    I ain't doing it until xposed ports officially. The only reason I have an old phone is because it's usable with root functions.

    It should be something like, when Android KitKat get update of Lollipop.
    That's what the real update was. Here they're just changing and adding new features to existing UI and calling it new Android version.

    Notification bubble best.
    Please remove navigation bar. Please make it like iPhone or miui gesture.
    Or atleast, hide navigation bar and keep the home button only. No need back button. I always accidentally touch back button and need to reload again when browsing.

    Would highly recommend everyone to buy a Google Pixel 1st Gen. I got mine for £75 and just installed Android Q in a matter of minutes. Worth it for the Camera, specs and latest Android alone.
    Find me a device for the same price with all of this.

    Lots of comments here are like "Oh I'm still on Marshmallow or Oreo". Funny how a 800$ Samsung phone user has to wait for a couple of years for the latest update, but a 300$ Android One user(My Xiaomi Redmi A2) gets pie 3 months after it came out.

    My favorite Android updates are Pie, Nougat, and Marshmallow in that order. KitKat from the pre-Material Design days.

    I have a pixel 2. Why don't we see any developer option? Is it not for pixel 2 devises? Also, why is it that once we take a screen shot it doesn't get shared from our notification dashboard. We have to scroll down then share the same. Just wanted to know if it's normal or not.

    Hey guys, my pixel 2xl is currently running on Android Q beta1. When I updated to Q my device was in dark mode. Now I can't find the toggle off for dark mode. Turning on and off between battery saver doesn't changes anything.
    Also in Google photos app, there's no options available. Only the pop-ups are there. Any possible fixes for that?
