For some features, such as the ability to long-press on an app shortcut on the home screen and accessing quick functionality, you can take a look at third-party launchers such as Google Now Launcher and Nova Launcher.
If Samsung changes its mind and decides to bring Android 7.1.1 to existing phones, we won’t complain.
It’s worth saying that, yes, the upscaled apps usually tend to run , but that more aren’t available natively at this point that jive in landscape mode isn’t a good look when i OS on tablets addressed such issues long ago.
Unfortunately, Android Oreo doesn’t seem like it’s going to fix these problems.
If you want a tablet that offers PC-like productivity and a thriving app selection that features more native, made-for-tablet apps than it does upscaled or incompatible phone apps, you’re probably going to buy an i Pad equipped with i OS 11.
As you may have noticed, Samsung is only bringing Android 7.0 to devices rather than 7.1.1/7.1.2, and for those that get the new Samsung Experience user interface, the company is bringing over version 8.1 as seen on the Galaxy S8.And while its usefulness as a full laptop replacement can be debated, the push to get more competitive in the space has made i OS on tablets more capable as a whole.While the update to i OS 11 will finally put the i Pad on-par with how Android has managed its file system for many operating system iterations, Apple looks to be putting it to better use by allowing for drag-and-drop like many are accustomed to on the touchscreen laptop.Sure, it’s also there for fun, but it represents a key area where Google falls flat on its face.Following the wide launch of the Google Assistant earlier this year, Google opted to leave it out of tablets, including its very own Pixel C.
