Review Android Pie: it’s the small details …

Android Pie

It’s the small details what make the difference, usually, between a good product and last the average. There’s always a product available that has the same specifications and half the price of the product superior. May provide the average home with everything you need really and the efforts of similar products superior. But something remains incomplete, something you may not select or know: there is something, a touch, corner, and detail, makes you prefer in the end to buy superior if you can, or buy the other house and in your heart sprig.


We are not talking here about the tangible product, but about the middle of programming a Android update 9.0, or Android pay Android Pie , which was launched by Google officially days ago. But the similarity of the above fit to communicate the idea (the thing) which gives you a strong impression about the quality of the product without being able to actually back your impression positive to a certain feature, or to one property.

Thing, is the sum of the detail very small and probably of little value for many when you see them or reading about them individually, but combined give you the trade (polished) brilliant.

May not bear a normal user when he reads that the degree applications now available what you want to do and suggests shortcuts, procedures and Actions appropriate, and some may see that feature selection smart phone numbers, addresses, etc within the web pages is not worth all the hype, and that the automatic adjustment of the lighting of the screen according to the preferences of the user regarding the operating system over time is a minor feature.

But these things are small (or seemingly small), are what constitute the combined experience of use is closer to the ideal reached by Google after ten years of work to develop and improve the operating system version behind the version, and after that introduced artificial intelligence in the cell.

Will not devote this review to mention all the features of the Android Pie in detail, we have previously talk about the Features Android P when he was a trial version, you can also review our previous article: in pictures: all the features of Android P announced by Google today [I/O 2018].

What we’ll talk about today is the experience of the use of the Council, with some of the most prominent features of the small or Large that help deliver the experience that I described above page to the ideal.

System development new

Android Pie home

Let’s start to water, the most obvious which is first encountered and will bring his experience, a system of the new development which eliminates the Navigation buttons traditional and replaces it buttoned a major one in the middle you can handle it to see the open apps and navigate to them, or open your app drawer, and all of that through “gestures”.

By default this feature is disabled, i.e. you will see the navigation bar old cardigans three after the update, but you can activate it from the settings where they are called by Google in Arabic “scrolling quickly up on the Home screen button”.

The way the new implementation works as follows: draw a short upward above the main button you will be shown the list of applications open and keep the search bar of the Google phenomenon. in addition to a set of applications that automatically change according to the operating system is available you may you open it now. Remember this point well, as we’ll be back shortly.

You can see the list of open apps by touching the cards directly and agitated, as you can by touching the main button and move it, and in this case the preview of the open apps are larger in size and disappears with the search bar and shortcuts. You can also see the open apps from the Home screen directly by pressing the main button and move it without having to click and drag towards the top.

You can now drag again towards the top to see the app drawer that you can also have direct access to him in prison once quickly without opening the preview of the last app.

This small detail is enough for me of the Android Pie

I told you at the top to remember good list of shortcuts that appear under the search bar I have to open recent apps list. These small details that will have unnoticed if I read it without that experience, but it’s almost for me of the best features because of their predictive ability is HIGH on the proposal application.

As someone who doesn’t like to put all the apps that he uses on the desktop is crowded, turn a lot to search for the apps that I want in the app drawer, but this list prior to my arrival even to the point of application give me five suggestions, have app that I need is from among these five in 99% of cases. I think that Google can make it according to factors such as the time, the location of the user, and of course the applications that he normally uses in different circumstances.

Like, when I’m in the Club Show me here usually applications that I use during exercise, and when I’m on the way back from work Show me the apps that I use to know road condition and transportation.

But let’s go back to talk about a system of gestures to move between open apps. In fact, I think this part is the only thing in the Android Pie, which didn’t work Google in to make it perfect. It seems that the company is still considered experimental and that’s the reason I didn’t do for him, the way this implementation by default. Although the system of gestures provides the idea of process is easy to learn but it is not exactly as you wish here me, you have two remarks:

  • As I said above there are two ways to see the previews of Open applications, a first problem which is never a drag towards the top above the main button and then navigate through the move the cards towards the right and the left. The second method is pressure directly on the main button and then move it. The problem here is that the movement of the cards do not always move in the same smooth movement of the hand. No you sometimes need to travel a certain distance to move between the first card and the second, then the distance is shorter or longer so that the transition between the second card and third. You may also sometimes up to the tip of the screen and there are still cards has not been reviewed yet.
  • I miss the strongly double-clicking on the last button of the applications within the navigation bar of the old, which allows to switch fast between the last two apps open.

Despite these notes, but I find the experience new and fun and I’m not going back to activate the navigation bar traditional. Maybe it needs development been to some pledge, as I want to experience how will Google improve the trade and modify in the sub-version next Android 9.1.

Copying and pasting within the city.

This is also one of the small features but it’s very interest. The preview app is not a rigid as in the previous version of Android, it is the app itself! It’s true you can’t use the app in this mode but you can at least copy the text. Have found this feature really has the need for repeated some texts and paste them in a second application.

App Actions

You’ll find something different in the app drawer, which feature “action” or App Actions, where allocated to the app drawer of the second row of display suggestions not comments per se, but certain actions within the app. Like if there’s a particular person you communicate with intensively via WhatsApp, you may find test lets you open WhatsApp and Go directly to the chat window with that person. The same thing applies to the phone app or social media applications and other applications supporting this feature.

Control the flow of the screen

In case you are using your phone normally with the Disable Auto-rotate screen, and I wanted in an app to use it horizontally you will have access to the quick settings menu and look for automatic rotation and then re-do it, and then re-disable it when you finish. Now and features small, useful is a small icon appear in the corner of the navigation bar when you rotate the screen, allows you to rotate it manually once by clicking on the button I have a need for it, and therefore no further deactivation and activation continuous change automatic every time.

Control notifications

You get a lot of notifications from different apps? Of course you can open each app from this app and in its settings for a way to disable the notices, but who has time for this? Now I have to pull the notifications menu you’ll find the option to always emerge on behalf of (management notices) and by clicking it you can easily disable or activate the notifications for the apps that you want fast and easy.

In addition, in case you notice the operating system that you are doing and frequently the development of notifications of a specific application upon arrival, you will not need to enter the above list originally, as you’ll see a message asking if you want to disable notifications for this app once and for all, in the case of your consent you will not use the notice of application unless you re-activate it manually after that.

Automatic brightness

Automatic brightness is not New, of course. Most phones already adjusts the screen brightness according to ambient lighting. But you often need manual intervention to modify the brightness in the case found that the automatic brightness came less or more than you want according to the conditions of specific illumination. New in the Android Pie is that the operating system learns from your preferences have you do manual adjustment to automatically adjust the brightness for you. Since my use for the Android Pie have already stopped feeling the need to manually modify the brightness to meet.

Battery adaptive

Battery adaptive Adaptive Battery is a feature that restricts consumption of applications that do not use much battery. I can’t estimate the extent of the contribution of this feature to improve battery life, but I think it’s an especially useful feature for those with a large collection of apps on his phone is not used most of them.

Hiring the right company

A touch simple but comfortable actually, the Android Pie control options as on the right of the screen, so I have to press the buttons of sound control where you can adjust the volume through the menu, or mute it, do it and activate the vibration or even go to Settings and detailed pictures.

In the same way, and prolonged pressure on the button to show the list options allow you to shutdown, restart, or capture the screen image. With today’s phones screen long you will find that as this new way of shopping is welcome and without a doubt he is singing about going up where the quick settings menu, or pressing several buttons together to capture the image of the company.

More details …

If we are to go into all what the Android Pie, you’ll need to for very long, that’s why I liked in this review to talk about the experience of the use of the year with the highlight highlight. There, behind the scenes a large collection of enhancements and features. Improvement on Bluetooth connection with the heavens, and security and protection, performance and smooth usage, and interfaces, etc.

Are a lot of small details that you may not notice most of them directly, but they offer the combined experience of using a classy. I think that since the Android oreo Oreo has become need really necessary for all users to be denied to get Android phones get their updates first and one of the Android raw, as a hobby pix or Nokia to enjoy the experience to use spectators that no longer matched any of the customizations offered by other companies on their duties.
