Android Oreo vs iOS 11

Another year, another version of Android and iOS. It’s that time where we compare the new features offered in each camp and help you to decide if now’s the time to switch.

Apple is now up to iOS 11, and there’s nothing radically different or new to woo Android users. But it’s the same story at Google: a raft of small changes makes Android Oreo 8.0 nicer and easier to use.

It is worth stating at the outset that not all Android phones will have all of the features we mention here. Many phone makers love to customise Android with their own ‘overlays’ and this can mean that their own notification design, say, overrides what Android would otherwise do in its native form.

It’s also possible that your Android phone won’t ever get Android Oreo, either because it’s too old or because the manufacturer simply decides not to put the work into modifying and releasing Oreo for it.

This, along with the fact you’re virtually guaranteed a timely update is why a lot of people prefer to buy one of Google’s own phones or a handset from a manufacturer that sticks close to stock Android and has a good track record of fast updates to the new version.

What’s new in Android Oreo?

Here are the main changes, but there are lots of other small updates too.

  • 2x faster to boot up
  • Minimises background app activity
  • Autofill remembers app logins
  • Picture in Picture lets you watch video while using another app
  • Notification dots quickly show you what’s new, and can be swiped off screen
  • Android Instant Apps launch within your browser with no installation
  • Google Play Protect scans apps to keep your device and data safe
  • Improved battery life
  • Redesigned emoji library with more than 60 new emoji

Some of the smaller improvements include notification snoozing where you can dismiss a notification that you want to deal with later – similar to Inbox snoozing.

There’s built-in compatibility with Mopria printers, too, which Google reckons covers almost all printers currently on sale.

Project Treble is another behind-the-scenes update that makes Android more modular, which in turn makes it easier for phone makers to roll out Android updates. Hopefully, then, even Huawei owners might see new versions arriving on their phones without an interminable wait.

Having a feature like Autofill means you won’t have to install an extra app (such as Lastpass) to remember your logins and it works with apps, not just websites in a browser.

Picture in picture works much like it does in iOS:

For more details, read our Android Oreo review.

What’s new in iOS 11?

  • Built-in screen recording
  • Customisable Control Centre
  • Redesigned App Store
  • Files app (for iPad)
  • Dock (for iPad)
  • Multitasking improvements for iPad
  • Drag and drop (for iPad)
  • Apple Pencil improvements
  • New Live photos (loop, bounce, long exposure)
  • Portrait lighting (only on certain iPhones)
  • Improved Siri
  • AirPlay 2
  • Do Not Disturb While Driving

Clearly, this is an iPad-focused update and iOS 11 is a massive improvement for iPad owners, particularly those with the iPad Pro.

Adding a macOS-style dock is a brilliant move and the new ability to launch apps from it as well as dragging and dropping between two open apps puts iOS 11 firmly in the lead over Android when it comes to tablets.

Google did add the capability to run two apps on screen on the Pixel C in Nougat, but add hardware and software together and it’s the iPad Pro (with the Apple Pencil) that wins for productivity.

Although outside the scope of this comparison, before you order an iPad Pro it’s well worth investigating a Surface Pro with Windows 10 if you primarily live in the Microsoft Office world. Windows still beats iOS for productivity.

If you’re reading this with phones in mind, then iOS 11 is of course also very slick on the iPhone. Plenty of people will be happy to see the back of the multi-pane Control Centre and the overdue introduction of customisation.

Now you choose which shortcuts you want to see, and if you have a phone with 3D Touch, you can press hard to see more options. For example, you can toggle Wi-Fi on and off as usual, but a ‘deep’ press takes you to the Wi-Fi settings.

Android Oreo vs iOS 11

The redesigned App Store not only looks nicer, but importantly makes it far easier to discover new apps than before.

We also like the new live photo options, which you’ll find when you edit a live photo in the Photos app. Previously live photos were something you were likely to disable, but now the video clips are fun to share with friends and family.

And from a safety point of view, iOS 11 will try and detect when you’re driving and mute all notifications. If someone calls or texts, you can set up an auto-reply which tells them you’re driving and you’ll catch up with them later. 

So which is better, iOS or Android?

The old argument goes that Android is more customisable and lets you do more, and iOS is safer and more secure but is far more limiting in terms of what you can change and how you do things.

And with Oreo and iOS 11 nothing has really changed on this score. Thanks to the new Google Play Protect, Oreo should be the most secure version of Android yet and all the other improvements (including the better power management) make it the best yet.

Of course, hardware manufacturers have been adding features for years, so lots of Android phones already have great power management and it’s simple to install an app that can remember login details.

Picture-in-picture is a feature that’s catching up with iOS, but it’s been a long while since Android could be considered “as good as” iOS. In many respects there are still lots of features that Apple could ‘borrow’ and implement in iOS. Notification lights, anyone?

Motorola releases list of devices that will get Android Oreo

Now that Android 8.0 Oreo is out in the wild for Google’s Pixel and Nexus devices, now the attention turns to Android manufacturers to see what devices will get the update and the speed at which they receive the updates. Motorola is one such manufacturer, and with a slew of Android devices under its belt, it’s time to take a look at which will get Oreo.

Taking a look at the list, the more notable omissions are the Moto G4 Play, Moto G4, and Moto G4 Plus, all three of which were released in 2016. Even though they were all upgraded to Nougat, it looks as if that will be the last major Android update they will receive, which is a bit of a letdown but something that has become a trend with budget smartphones.

Also of note is some of the language Motorola uses with certain devices, whose Oreo updates are “pending partner support.” Keep in mind that, even though Motorola is behind the updates, the carriers are the ones that push them out, unless the device is unlocked. As such, you should also pay attention to your carrier if you have any of the Z-branded phones, since they are the ones who set the update timetable for their phones.

Finally, the list does not include the upcoming Moto X4, which looks to be the first Android One phone to launch in the US. Then again, the Moto X4 isn’t even available for purchase in the country or around the world yet, so keep your fingers crossed that an update to Oreo is in the works.

You can see the full list of Motorola devices getting the Oreo update below:

  • Moto Z2 Force – AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon
  • Moto Z2 Play – Verizon, unlocked
  • Moto Z Force – Verizon
  • Moto Z – Verizon, unlocked
  • Moto Z Play – Verizon, unlocked
  • Moto G5S Plus – unlocked
  • Moto G5 Plus – unlocked
  • Moto G5 – unlocked

Do you think Motorola has dropped the ball when it comes to the lack of an Oreo update for the Moto G4 family? How long do you think it will take these phones to receive the Oreo update? Let us know in the comments!

Android Nougat Now Running on 15.8 Percent of Active Devices, Oreo Not on Chart: Google

While all the news this week is revolving around Apple and the buzz it created around the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, Google has released its Android platform distribution chart for the month of September. The chart shows that Android Nougat continuing to gain market share, with its presence now on almost 15.8 percent active devices. However, the latest Android Oreo version could not find its place in the chart for the same month – notably, Android versions with less than 0.1 percent share of active devices aren’t listed, implying Oreo is currently on fewer than those many devices.

In June this year, the Android Nougat version was found running on 10 percent of active devices. Then in July and August, Android Nougat reached 10.6 percent and 13.5 percent respectively. The total share of Android Nougat for September has now hit 15.8 percent, which includes 12.3 percent of devices on the Android 7.0 Nougat version and 1.2 percent of devices on Android 7.1 Nougat.

The new statistics show that Android Marshmallow continues to dominate with up to 32.2 percent share. The distribution share for Android Marshmallow has declined, but fell just 0.1 percent from the last month’s number that stood at 32.3 percent.

In addition to Android Marshmallow, all other Android versions have also declined. These builds include Android Gingerbread (at 0.6 percent share) and Ice Cream Sandwich (with 0.6 percent share) – which both fell 0.1 percent. Jelly Bean at 6.9 percent share, fell 0.7 percent. KitKat, currently at 15.1 percent share, fell 0.9 percent, while Lollipop, with a share of 28.8 percent, fell 0.4 percent.

Google says that this data has been collected during a 7-day period that concluded on September 11, and Android builds with less than 0.1 percent share have been excluded. It should also be kept in mind that Google takes only those Android devices into account that support Google Play (which itself supports Android 2.2 and above).

Google’s latest version Android Oreo officially rolled out to Pixel and Nexus devices a few days ago and it will take more than a month to get itself a substantial share in the Android platform distribution chart, as per recent trends.

The distribution chart also goes on to mention the OpenGL ES distribution amongst the active devices. While the latest OpenGL versions are not there in the chart, a major portion is dominated by OpenGL version 3.0 – standing at 45.8 percent, rising 0.2 percent. The other two versions in the chart are OpenGL 2.0 with 37.3 percent share (declining 0.3 percent) and OpenGL 3.1 with 16.9 percent distribution share (rising 0.1 percent). Note that support for a certain version means that it also supports any lower versions of OpenGL API, Google says in its developers blog post.

OnePlus 3 Closed Beta Group Receives Android Oreo

Fans of OnePlus may not be fans of the company’s faults, especially when it comes to updates. The OnePlus 2 is considered the forgotten child of OnePlus, promised an update to Nougat but it was never received. The device only received one major upgrade, a pretty abysmal state to be in. According to the OnePlus 3 closed beta group, things are changing for the Shenzhen based company.

OnePlus are looking to make a change. They’re serious, and to show that they are aiming for the OnePlus 3/OnePlus 3T to receive a public beta by the end of September 2017 running Android Oreo. OxygenOS being extremely minimal in terms of modifications to Android, people are hopeful that we can see the first Open Beta release by the end of September, though there have been no guarantees. They are currently requesting closed beta users to take logs when there are issues, either in installation or with various system functions.

OnePlus are not known for being “quick to update”, yet from the person reporting from the closed beta group, OnePlus seem to want to change that. Rather than making a promise and restricting themselves to a deadline, they would rather just act and get it out when it’s ready. This marks a change for the company.

So far it seems OnePlus are facing many bugs on their Android Oreo build. With broken NFC, bugged WiFi, inconsistent hotspots and Bluetooth issues, it seems OnePlus are a good bit away from having an Open Beta worthy release. Because of this, we might not see a Public/Open Beta until after September. OnePlus don’t plan to release the Open Beta just for the OnePlus 3, but for the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5 as well, presumably at a similar time.

OnePlus could be one of the first to release Android Oreo for their devices. For a technology company which some would know as slow to update their devices, that’s a crazy thought that they may next be one of the quickest — though to be fair, they did a decent job with Android Nougat last year. We’ll need to wait and see if OnePlus include Project Treble in the incremental upgrade. They don’t have to, as none of their devices launched with Android Oreo, but it would be a great parting gift to the community in a final update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update could be coming soon | Tech | Life & Style

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners could get an upgrade to Android Oreo soon.

The South Korean technology company is believed to be hard at work on a custom version of Android 8.0 for its flagship smartphone range.

The latest version of the mobile operating system – dubbed Oreo – was released by Google last month.

Android Oreo includes a slew of tweaks and minor improvements to the smartphone and tablet operating system.

The eighth major software iteration includes notification dots on app icons, picture-in-picture video playback, and autofill to quickly and securely enter passwords and other personal information in website forms.

Oreo will also restrict background apps from draining the battery to help eek more usage from each charge.

Google has completely overhauled its emoji design – ditching the Flubber-like blobs in favour of a round design closer to those seen on the iPhone.

Unfortunately, Android 8.0 Oreo is only available for a select few handsets at the moment.

Google Pixel and Nexus hardware can run the new operating system, but that’s about it.

OnePlus is tipped to be powering ahead with its version of Oreo and plans to push-out a public beta of the software at the end of the month.

According to technology blog SamMobile, Samsung is also forging ahead with an accelerated schedule for the launch of Oreo.

SamMobile, which has a strong track record when it comes to Samsung leaks, claims the technology firm may initiate a “beta-testing program for early adopters, like it did for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge“ soon.

The Android 8.0 update for Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be called G955FXXU1BQI1 and G950FXXU1BQI1, SamMobile claims.

Last year, Samsung rolled-out a beta version of its Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade in early November – two months after Google launched Android Nougat.

The final stable update was available of Galaxy S7 owners to download in January 2017.

Hopefully, Samsung will be able to get the new version of Android out of the door a little quicker this year.

How to Install a Dark Theme on Android Oreo without Root

Some of you might remember the days of Android Gingerbread’s green-colored system theme. That was later supplanted by the much beloved Holo UI when Matias Duarte joined Google. The dark, almost futuristic look of Android during the Ice Cream Sandwich, KitKat, and Jellybean was comfortable on the eyes, although the design is dated when paired against the Material Design interface introduced in Android Lollipop. Since then, Google has stuck to the light Material theme to the dismay of many. Getting rid of the blindingly bright light theme on Android Oreo is probably one of the most commonly cited reasons why people are so excited for rootless custom theme support via the Substratum theme engine. Today, we’ll show you exactly how you can install a dark theme on your Android Oreo phone without root!

How to Install a Dark Theme on Android Oreo

Prerequisites

Rather than rehashing how to set up Substratum on your shiny Android 8.0 Oreo device, check out this previous tutorial. Follow through that article until you reach the end of “Part 1”, then return to this article to be guided through setting up the dark theme.

Once you’ve set up the Andromeda add-on and have confirmed that Substratum launched without issues, follow the below link to install Sai’s Android Oreo Black Theme. It’s a totally free theme made by a talented themer, but if you enjoy his theme you should consider donating to the user.

[Substratum] Sai's Android Oreo Black Theme
[Substratum] Sai's Android Oreo Black Theme

This particular theme currently only themes the Android System/Framework as well as System UI, but we can combine this theme pack with another one from the same developer to theme a few additional applications. Called Sai’s Fresh Theme, this Substratum theme allows you to apply a dark theme to applications such Android Messages, Google Play Store, and Twitter.

[Substratum] Sai's Fresh Theme
[Substratum] Sai's Fresh Theme

If you’re looking for a theme that applies to more apps, we’ll recommend a few alternative dark themes at the end of this article, but many of the other dark theming apps out there aren’t free, so you’ll have to decide for yourself how many of your apps you want themed. In any case, getting a dark theme in Settings/System UI is more than enough for most people, so that’s why I am recommending Sai’s free themes here.

Tutorial – Installing a Dark Theme

  1. If you haven’t already, start the Andromeda desktop client so that Substratum has the permissions it needs in order to manage themes. The steps to achieve this, again, are outlined in the main tutorial here.
  2. Open the Substratum application and look for “Sai’s Android O Black Theme” in the list.
  3. Tap on it to enter the setup page for the theme pack.
  4. Here, tap on “select to toggle all overlays.”
  5. This will choose the default theme colors and navigation bar icons that come with the theme (Pixel Blue and Pixel respectively). If you want to change the color to “Better Teal”, “Rose”, or “Violet”, expand the dropdown menu under “Android system” and select the color that you want. Similarly, expand the dropdown menu under “System UI Navigation” to reveal alternative navigation bar icon themes such as “AOSP”, “Parapaper”, or “Pixel Neo.”
  6. Once you’re done selecting which overlays and which options you want to enable, tap on the floating button with the paint roller icon. This will bring up a small floating menu.
  7. Select “Build & Enable.” You will see a loading screen as Substratum compiles, installs, then enables each overlay file onto your device. All silently, without you needing to do anything else!
  8. After it’s done, you should see a small snack bar at the bottom telling you the status of the dark theme installation. It doesn’t last very long, but if you expand your notification panel you should see a notification from Substratum telling you that the theme installation was successful. You’ll also immediately be able to see your quick settings/notification panel become much, much darker!Install Dark Theme on Android 8.0 Without Root
  9. Note: any already existing notification in your notification panel before the theme is applied will not be dark themed. This will likely include the “theme compilation has completed” notification as shown above. Any new notifications that show up in your notification panel will, however, be dark themed, as shown in the feature image at the top of this article!
  10. Optional: If you want to install a dark/black theme for Messages, Twitter, and the Play Store then go back to Substratum and open up Sai’s Fresh Theme in the list. Here, select the themes that you want applied to the apps that you want to be themed. Just like above, tap the paint roller icon and select “Build & Enable” in order to apply the theme!

Enjoy the dark theme! Your dark themes will remain on your phone even if you reboot! It won’t survive a factory reset, however. If you decide to change your mind for whatever reason and want to go back to the default light theme, you can easily disable this theme by repeating steps 1-6, but instead of tapping on “Build & Enable” in step 7 you tap on “Disable selected.”

Alternative Dark Themes

As promised, here are a handful of alternative custom dark themes available for Android Oreo users. None of the below themes are free, but they are great examples of the kinds of themes that are available on the Play Store. Credits to XDA Senior Member rest0ck for putting together this list!

Hopefully with the explosion in popularity that rootless Substratum has brought to custom theming, more and more developers will create themes that will be compatible for Android Oreo users. Keep an eye out on our Substratum forum and stay tuned to the XDA Portal via the XDA Labs app for any future news about the Substratum theme engine.

This post is not the only Substratum related tutorial we published today. In fact, it’s part of a series. You can find the rest of the tutorials below:
