Should you use the Android N Dev Preview 3 (Beta) on your phone and tablet?

107

Just because the status of the software has been upgraded doesn't mean it's ready for every phone or tablet. (But it is better.)

We knew plenty about Android N heading into Google I/O 2016, but most of us rightly stayed away from installing it on a main device due to its Developer Preview "alpha" status. There were bugs.

After using it on every compatible device ourselves, we have some definitive answers for you.
