Android 10 is the next version of the Android operating system, previously announced as Android Q (which many guessed to be called ‘Quince Tart’). Google chose to end this practice of naming their versions after major desserts, for good reason!
Those of you who may have tried out the beta version, which was made available on the Android beta programme back in March, each iteration since was rolled out to fix bug issues and change major features like the new gesture navigation.
We (Pixel users so far), can all wave goodbye to Android Pie and say ‘hello’ to Android 10.
Personally, from using the Android 10 beta, I think it took some time to get to know the gestures but overall seems to be more fluid and quicker to flip from one app to another.
Having no home button for me was the most noticeable missing feature at first but like anything new you adapt to the changes and start to appreciate why Google chose to change the gesture system.
There has been some mention of the battery life draining quicker since the new update but I have not noticed a major change with this, it's only been a few hours.
The dark mode on some apps is a nice touch but, core apps like Gmail are still lacking support.
Google supports foldable phones in Android 10, which is good news for the Mobile Phone industry that is starting to stagnant.
