    Umm... at least as far as I'm concerned, it's not Google that's the problem of updating to the latest version but Samsung.
    As well as the dumb-ass trend of selling phones that I would actually call "small tablets with call functionality".
    Give me a flagship phone that's 5.2" max. and I'll upgrade once it's sold for 200$ on eBay.

      LOL sounds like I'm going to wait for a few years until the control schemes have settled before my next phone upgrade.

                      All the datamining is opt in by default and gboard lies about that they don't take data in its raw form so they dont take data. So aside from the fraud, you also are prevented from getting rid of the embedded Google Search in the dock so that its glued into the app drawer, would not recommend. Also on my Pie, discover filter bubble cant be disabled. It is gross and useless.

                                        On Nokia 6 you can use face unlock by flashing the stock version of Gapps via twrp recovery ;)

                                      Just bought mi9 last week. And found out that one feature linus talked about was already in miui10, that wifi qr password sharing thing. the gesture almost the same except swiping for cycling recent apps, had something similar but different. You swipe from the right/left in the middle screen area and hold it for a second for instant switching to previous app.

                                      I hope this device would get more of those features you said in the future

                                          IMHO the Oneui swipe gestures where you swipe up from the bottom middle to go home, swipe up from the bottom left to go to the app switcher, and swipe up from the bottom right as a back button is better than the iOS gestures

If they're more popular with phone users, than it's understandable to include those features. But when it comes to the overall Android 10 experience, it definitely surpasses iOS. Especially in the multitasking department and with googles new features.

                                                                                            I understand that LTT is a business but this is totally different then every content till now (obvious pure commercial through and through,no tech tips,no quick tips).
                                                                                            I'm a bit disappointed,but in hope that this is just an isolated case and LTT will stay what it was instead growing into new commercial channel.
