Android Pie has been around for a few weeks now and, while it's been well received by most, it's not perfect. While some features make sense, such as moving select top bar elements to accommodate the notch in the Pixel 3 XL, other "features" have been less popular. Here are some things Android Pie needs to get right sooner rather than later.


Unlike iOS where everyone receives an operating system update at the same time, Android updates are a bit... scattered. Google devices always get the update first, but devices from other manufacturers can take weeks or months to receive an update if they do at all.


The wallpapers for Google’s next phone, the Pixel 3, are in the open. The latest in a series of leaks around the phone ahead of Google’s October 9 unveiling event, MySmartPrice has obtained a full set of the Pixel 3's “adaptive” wallpapers, which shift when you tilt your phone, and move when you play music.


If you already have Android 9 Pie, the alias of Google’s latest mobile operating system, you’re in for a treat — and not just because Google names its software after desserts. There are dozens of new features to dive into and learn, including some that can only be unearthed by unlocking the developer options.


Android: If you’ve updated to Android 9 Pie, you may have noticed that your smartphone will now automatically turn on your Wi-Fi connection — if you’ve turned it off — when you’re near familiar network with a strong signal. This feature, which debuted in Android Oreo, is now flipped on by default in Android Pie.


Google has officially given Android P its name. Android 9 Pie signals a major shift that will further differentiate Android from iOS. It brings a number of AI and machine learning based features to the world's most popular smartphone platform that adapt to how you use your device.
