Android O VS Android Nougat- The Complete Visual Battle [ Android 8.0 VS 7.0 +] – for Android Smartphone

About Android O [ Android 8.0 ]

Android O is expected to start rolling out from early or mid-August to all compatible android smartphone , but likely to first land the Pixel and Pixel XL and expected in Samsung galaxy note 8 . Loads of immaculate new features to coming to users.

One of the least important, but still useful areas in which Android O will vary from Nougat will be the all the major and minor ways the interface will differ in.

Obviously, a repudiation is due: the comparison below is matching the existing Android Nougat build with Developer Preview 3 of Android O, which means that the former can tentatively score a lot of changes in its final release a couple of weeks from now in your android smartphone .

Google’s latest update to Android has arrived in the form of an early Developer Preview, and like always, we’re excited. To no one’s surprise, the latest iteration of Android is being called Android O (Oreo? Hopefully!), and it brings with it quite a lot of changes. The Developer Preview is only available on the Nexus, and Pixel devices, so if you can’t get your hands on it yet, and want to know about all the changes you can expect from Android O, we’ve got you covered. We are pitting Android O vs Android Nougat, and here are all the changes you should know about:

 

Android O (left) vs Android N (right) – Settings

More from “essential changes in every Android version ever”, the Settings page is seeing another overhaul, and it looks like the slide-over panel from Android Nougat didn’t go down well with the designers over at Google, because it has been booted from the Developer Preview of Android 8.0. Also, the Settings page now opts to aggressively categorize items into broader categories, which results in a much shorter top list in the Settings list.

This is probably the biggest overhaul in Android 8.0. The majority of menu options in the Settings app have been bundled together into topic-based menus, which was not the case in android smartphone running on Android Nougat.

The storage menu has scored a new, more modern interface that looks sleek and informative at the same time.

Few changes on the home screen so far. With the official release of Android 8.0, app icons should become more streamlined and bear more similarities to one another thanks to O’s Adaptive Icons feature.

Google has been making changes to the way notifications behave in Android ever since Marshmallow, and Android O is no different. Android O looks to improve upon every good thing Android Nougat brought along, and then some. With Android O, we’re getting Notification Channels, which are basically categories that an app can classify its notifications into. This means that instead of having to change notification settings for an entire app, users will now get even more fine-grained control over the kinds of notifications they want.

Notifications can also be snoozed in Android O, and this really does look like a good feature. Users will be able to simply swipe a notification, and tap on the snooze icon to snooze the notification for a default time of 15 minutes. This can be extended (at least in the current Developer Preview) to a maximum of 1 hour. Personally, I’d like to have some sort of custom time here, the way “Inbox” handles snoozing emails, but this is just the first Developer Preview, so there’s a lot of time for that for your Android smartphone. 

Dark is out and white is in… Sadly! The notification/quick toggles shade in Android O will feature black icons against a white background, whereas Android Nougat did the complete opposite.

Android O (left) vs Android N (right) – Battery

Android has always been working hard to improve the battery life it can squeeze out of your device. Even with batteries getting bigger and bigger, users are still looking for more, and this can only be accomplished when good hardware is being used by exceptionally optimized software. With Android O, Google is looking to further the improvements it made in battery optimizations in Android Nougat.

The Doze feature, which was first introduced in Android Marshmallow, and improved further in Android Nougat, is becoming even more aggressive in Android O, with even more restrictions placed on things that apps can do in the background, and the frequency at which they can do them. Android O places much stricter restrictions on apps asking for location updates, registering implicit broadcasts, and running background services. While we can’t really judge the difference this is making, since it’s a Developer Preview, we can certainly hope that it works as well as Google is telling us it will.

Ditto about the battery menu, which looks better than its predecessor.

Apart from these major changes, Android O also changes quite a lot of UI items, when compared to  Android smartphone running on Android Nougat. The Navigation Bar, for instance, turns dark, when the Pixel Launcher app drawer is slid up, and it looks much better than what it did back in Android Nougat. Also, speaking of the app drawer, it can now be brought up by sliding up anywhere on the home screen, which is definitely easier, and much more intuitive.

So far, it looks like the app drawers of the two Android releases look similar to one another. We doubt that any ground-breaking overhauls will take place at all this year.

 

Android O (left) vs Android N (right) – Google Assistant

Once again, few changes in-between. You can now chat with the Google Assistant, so there’s that, but otherwise, it’s basically the very same smart assistant.
