Install for Adaptive Battery & Adaptive Brightness
The Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie comes with some big changes from Samsung, but it also comes with some of the key features from Google.
Android Pie update comes with a variety of changes including Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, App Actions, Slices, and Smart Text Selection.
If you're unfamiliar with Google's Android Pie features, you should take a look at our Android Pie vs. Android Oreo walkthrough.
Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness are the two features we want to single out here.
Adaptive Battery is an AI-based feature that learns how you use the apps on your phone over time and uses said data to improve your Galaxy Note 8's battery life.
So if you use an app a lot it will stay in your memory after you close it. If you don't use an app a lot your phone will instantly kill it so that it doesn't suck up power in the background.
It also learns when you use your apps the most. For instance if you use an app at a certain point in the day every day, it will wake that app up during that time period. On the other hand, it will stop the app in the background during the times you don't regularly use it.
Once you get on Android Pie, Adaptive Battery is located in Device Care (formerly Device Maintenance) in your device's Settings.
Adaptive Brightness also uses AI to learn your habits. And like its name suggests, it's focused on the brightness of your display.
Over time, your phone will learn how you like to set your phone's brightness in certain situations and it will adjust the screen accordingly.
