I shouldn't have trusted Nokia, they are not exactly experts and they suck big time. First of all these DP's aren't exactly the quality that google delivers to its devices. These developer previews @HMD_Laura
; i tell you are NOT WHAT GOOGLE DELIVERS TO ITS DEVICES.Not even netflix works! some random guy said netflix veta works but why should i have to go to an unauthorised place to download an unauthorised APK to watch something that i paid money for!? This is the exact kinda thing google and other competent companies does best! These are useless builds literally i didn't even last 30 mins of Android q installation and i was looking forward to this so long! and you guys screwed up soo bad! And you have been telling that OTA will be made available from june, guess what it more than mid-august! and no one is buying you bullshit! I mean no offence as the device is ROCK SOLID in Android 9, but still with bugs here and there nothing we can't handle because of your incompetent programmers. @matteo.m @HMD_Laura
Let me make this clear! I have been working in software industry long enough to say what is possible and what is not! There are so many things to be learned and personal problems in live as developers that makes our work harder but for a company of your stature this is bad news. One plus is doing a better job than you guys! The thing you delivered last DP5 is very unstable that it can't be even used without it being restarted every one hour or which in my case froze to death! You guys don't even deliver security patch like essential phones who release SP as soon with only up to one day delay! And you guy should know better to reply to our concerns communicating ours with developers and replying ous concerns with as why it happened and a deadline for fix (something that you guys cant come up with. Like OTA keep dreaming about it). And about the announcement that you guys made in the developer preview page that everyone on DP3 should upgrade to 5! how clueless are you people? you guys should have broadcasted it here in the forums too because most people come here daily basis rather that browsing at a single page that lies about OTA ETA each and every month. ASK YOUR INCOMPETENT DEVELOPMENT TEAM TO EITHER DELIVER IT WITH WORKING CONDITIONS OR DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING THIS AT ALL!
You should know that these Developer Preview builds do have bugs and are not recommended to be used as a daily driver. You could have expressed your thoughts in a polite manner too. No need to get angry and there's no need to compare a dev preview to the dev preview of some other brand. Google builds the OS and also builds its own hw so they definitely have an edge over others and they can configure the software a lot better. Anyway, this is just a Dev Preview and not an official Android Q release. It is Dev Preview for a reason and the reason is - interested users can try out the upcoming software release and report the bugs so that they are fixed before the final release. You have been working in the software industry for long enough that you don't know why companies offer Dev Preview and Betas for testing? Sorry, No Offence.
Now coming to Security patches and the time taken to deliver them. You blame HMD Global for not delivering latest security patch in a day or two like Essential does for its "phones". Tell me how many phones does Essential update every month. The answer is ONE. ONLY ONE. HMD Global has to push the latest monthly security patches to TWENTY TWO devices every month. Not just high-end phones but even the low-end Nokia 1 gets monthly security patches. Do you think it is so easy to push the updates to all devices in a day or two after Google releases it?
Any person who wants to try the Developer Preview will need to register their device and for that he/she will head to the Dev Preview webpage where all the information is mentioned in complete detail. The page also says that they are working on OTA rollout which will be released this month if all goes well.
I just want to say that be polite in the forum and there's no need to get so angry over a Dev Preview Build. If you are facing bugs you can u report them directly from your phone which will help the devs in fixing those bugs. That's the right place to report bugs.
"Should not be used as daily driver? agreed. And google builds their own hardware? WTH last time i saw they also bought snapdragon boards (Snapdragon) and displays (LG) from other pioneer manufacturers same like Nokia and Oneplus its just that google has better people than HMD Global. "You have been working in the software industry for long enough that you don't know why companies offer Dev Preview and Betas for testing? Sorry, No Offence." - None taken, but you have been ignorant of the fact that it has to work in basic at least! for me and the guy above it corrupted to death in less than 30 mins that's not how a beta works it will have bugs but should not be rendered unusable then its called alpha stage. And about SP's i knew i expected too much from people who can't deliver a standard!
Google makes their own hardware doesn't mean making phones parts like processor and display. It means they design their pixels in house. So, it is obvious that they test the software on their pixels too.
I am not ignorant. It is you who still says you expected too much from people who can't deliver a standard even after knowing they have to test the new patch on 22 phones and then release it.
Many installed this build. All have different issues. Did you even try a reset after you installed the Dev Preview to see if it fixed some issues? I don't think so. You just tried to use it as a daily driver by restoring your 200 or so apps at startup itself. It didn't go well and now you are getting angry. Dev Previews are not for everyone. So, wait for the official Android Q as that's the thing you need.
