Android 9 Pie vs Android 8.0 Oreo Walkthrough: What’s New



Weather, Events & More on Lockscreen

Weather, Events & More on Lockscreen

Another small but helpful change to Android Pie is the addition of content on the lock screen. This works on the lock screen, ambient mode, and likely any phone with an always-on display. 

With Android 9, Google neatly displays the time, date, and now weather (with a nice little icon) and even upcoming reminders or events. This way you can see the weather or an event without unlocking your phone or turn on the screen. 

We can't completely customize the lock screen like the old days, but this is a nice addition people will enjoy and appreciate.

    Nothing re. the app switcher change? Big step backwards IMO. Delaying upgrade until fixed.

      No need to revert it back as this version is more exciting.

      Please, tell me how! The new look is UGLY. Tried downloading replacements but still won’t cover new UGLY icons!
      Btw, I’ve never found an option to avoid these updates completely. I turn my phone off at night.

    Android 9 sucks. The “bonus features” you failed to mention are:
    USB3 connectivity is BROKEN.
    Call recording is BROKEN.
    The volume control defaults to media, so changing ringer volume is a multi-step process.
    You are now BLOCKED from rolling back to the previous OS version.

    Look it up online, there are thousand of posts protesting these problems and yet Google has done nothing to fix any of them!

    DON’T TAKE THE PIE UPDATE!!!! You’ll regret it!

      Thanks Gary, you just gave us a voice unfortunately, Google just don’t care. To add to the list for me is a
      -crappy key pad
      – No flash for the front camera
      – No built in FM radio app
      – No dedicated folder to access personal files like pictures, videos, documents etc. We must not get everything from a third party developer.
      – No app to hide files like we have in other versions.

      Never be the 1st to update, always wait 6 months or more when others have updated to hear the flaws and if any fixes are being released. My theory is if you want the latest UI, buy the newer phone that comes with it installed from factory. When updating the new UI, developers never take into consideration the wear and tear, age of the phone, never fully test it, it is always a rush job and the end consumers are the R&D feedback guinea pigs. Developers these days due to budget and time constraints do a very basic beta test and rely and the end user becomes the feedback mechanism.

        Exactly said Mr.Alex,this is was we want to learn before purchasing any latest gadgets now a days.

    I have the Huawei P20pro. I shall never update to Pie cause they took away the use of call-recording! So now I’m still the boss of my phone and not google-police. I hope they will choke in their pie!

    I’m done with Android, next phone will be a flip phone or iPhone. If Google want’s to make the OS like iOS, I might as well go back to Apple.

      Good comment. Android is meant to be the alternative to Apple. Now it’s looking like Apple. Why not merge Android and Apple and call it AppDroid. Best of both worlds????

    I just found some feedback posts, like here:
    Manish Kumar • 6 months ago
    I recently installed the all new UI Android pie to my Samsung s9 plus
    UAE version. Though everything is fine but I had few issues with the
    software which I could share with all of you hope this reaches to the
    developers too.
    * battery drains faster than ever while on idle mode
    * the fast charging in not so effective unlike in the version before.
    * during games the start up is comparetive lot slower.
    * also the system boot up is slow.
    the weather widget is not aligned in the center. Well in fact it was
    aligned before but after few hours it jumped on to the right.
    * most importantly the device gets heated while charging.
    Thank you..

    I started to download the update on galaxy J7 duo, but after reading quite some comments on various websites I decided to cancel that update.
    The question is:
    How to cancel the update once it has been started (I mean cancel and not pause)?
