Android 10 was released back in September for Google's Pixel phones, and since then, we've seen the new software make its way to a bunch of other phones from various companies — including the likes of Samsung, Nokia, OnePlus, and more.
Now that more and more people are getting to use Android 10 for the first time, we thought we'd take another look through the AC forums to see what people's favorite features are for this version of the OS.
Here's what they had to say!
What about you? What Android 10 features do you like best?
Dark mode and improved notification shade.
I don't know. What's the difference? As I've stated many times before these OS updates don't change the way I use my phone in any meaningful way. I care more about security updates than OS updates. Much ado about nothing, if u ask me.
Gestures. The ability to seek songs from the notification bar.
Full screen gestures! This benefit is emphasized especially on a phone the size of a Note 10+.
Using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and definitely full gestures make the whole experience more smooth and fun. I could careless about swiping up to get Samsung Pay in home because I could always swipe up from a screen off state.
I like the ability to set location permissions for only when an app is open. I reset permissions for all my apps. I do like gestures as well. Had to ditch Google assistant as I was opening on accident too often. And am looking forward to Nova compatability with Samsung phone.
I can't figure it out, but messages and the phone app can no longer search my Outlook contacts. Also my Outlook calendar doesn't sync anymore. Works through Gmail app but not Outlook. Other than that I like 10.
