Don't Install Android P While Traveling

What this all comes down to is that Android P is an exciting release, but be careful. Just wait a little bit so you know what to expect, wait until you're ready to try it, and wait for problems to get fixed. It's not worth ruining your only phone just to try some new features a little early. 

And finally, you'll want to skip the Android P beta if you're traveling, at work, or about to go on a trip. Things can and might go wrong, features are missing, and things will act up. It's not worth the headache.

Over the years we've spoken to a lot of people stranded with a busted device/app/service because they updated to a new version of Android during a business trip or vacation. This is especially true on a beta like this one. It's even more true for the newcomers to Google's beta program. 

Having a functioning phone is important when you're traveling in a place you've never visited. It's also important while away on business. It's fun to try the latest release, but again, do it on a spare device when you have the time to jump in head-first. Instead of rushing to install it right away.

If you're out of your comfort zone, it's a good idea to wait on the beta. Wait until you get back home and can give it full attention. Then, if anything goes wrong you can unenroll in the beta and go back to Oreo. Although that might not be very easy on non-beta program devices.

At the end of the day, just make sure you know what you're doing, what you're getting into, and if it's right for you and the situation. Good luck.
