Android 11 doesn't add a TON of new features, but there's still enough tweaks and optimizations to make diehard Android fans happy. Let's talk about 'em!

    Linus saying we live in a black mirror episode and not freaking out about it is freaky in itself. like if people like linus don't kinda freak out and throw up some resistance to some of this stuff...who does? nobody expects to become a youtuber and receive that responsibility, but ultimately that's the reality we have isn't it?

    So Pixel users are now introduced to features Samsung and LG users have been using since 2011? Why then be harsh on iPhone users? Plus some of the Android 11 features have been in iOS for a really long time. I didn't know that.

    Google Play Music replaced by USlikes Music = many people switching to iPhones. Music offline should not require people to pay a premium for music they own and their device, especially when they bought their phones with an app that allowed it before.

    Wait so Android users are constantly shitting on iPhones for being late with features while most of this has been in iOS for ages? That media control thing looks EXACTLY like the media control thing that has been on iPhones since iOS7. It even has the “Airplay” button in the same place.

    Uhm... I've had bubbles available for ages (actually now that I think about it, the first time I saw it was on WhatsApp on Android 9 but while it was on, some other apps sometimes slipped into it... Like when I clicked a link within WhatsApp that opened another app, that app would now have a bubble until I closed it...) But I quickly turned it off because it became quite annoying. And now when I tried to find it on Android 10, I'd have to go to developer options.

    0:25 "Can you just let the pixel owners have this moment, please" ummm no. Because the pixel fanboys keep throwing that "ohhh software updates" around any chance they get. And yeah, we samsung owners were already enjoying those features YEARS before they get included in the so-called "software updates" from google.

    All you talking heads can fool me once..after that screw you! Everyone out there; If you are watching and listening to learn if and when Android 11 is ready - don't like any of these pseudo geeks who pretend like they've tried tried it! Android 11 does a lot of BAD things to ur phone. Eg. Screenshot is totally gone on my Pixel 3a XL. Don;'t believe the hype for fixes and how else to do it - the update f***s ur phone until they issue a patch or a fix. Other things quirky but I contain myself waiting to see.. Screw these guys who don't state immediately that Android 11 f***s ur phone!

    Google: Fluffs up pillow I swear this sounds like quite a bit of tedious stuff to me but still it’s good improvement Android keep up the good work with your progress. 🙂 Android: Thanks dad it’s not much but I’m taking my time with everything at the moment 😁 Microsoft Windows: At some point you’ll eventually grow for mmorpg pc games with the tablets made for you android and the mini client mmorpg games will eventually turn into an app at some point it’ll be a slow progress but it will happen though 🧐 Android: Yea there’s been some minor rumor about that every now n then n it could happen I mean like heck Lenovo achieved the basic perfection without a stinking keyboard I heard it was all thanks to you having him study up so much 😃 Microsoft Windows: Indeed without me testing him, evaluating him, and having him do homework a lot of things would go down a terrifying hill by the way Android have you gotten your essay done today on “Why technology was made?” 😑🤔🙂 Android: Yup I did are u n dad gonna work together for mmorpg pc games on the tablets too? 😃 Microsoft Windows: Yes I will be doing so it won’t just be on my App Store but also Apples n Googles Stores besides sharing is caring hopefully it’ll get those developers to come out of their comfy little dark hole by using mini clients or something I mean I understand the reasons why but at some point it won’t last forever it’ll eventually be an app as well and can still remain a pc game and besides that’s my intention since so many peeps play on the so called Wartunes game and 7 roads would hardly have much of a problem with me I’m too damn valid for em to run away and if they do Google will catch on to em and unstick wartunes off of its very own internet after all they would have to have an extremely good reason to pull away from my internet site besides I’m a father to Google you screw me over I will have the site be removed and alert other internet company’s as well, progress must be made and things have to evolve that goes for any mmorpg pc games even if they are mobile as well they can’t stay idle forever I can understand original ownership and legality but if ur not making progress 1 way or the other you’ll have to end up on the app stores and aim to be a bit better by learning from mistakes and improving so it never happens again. 🧐 Google: Agreed I mean like heck I’m not as intelligent as my dad out here but I will evaluate things throughly before removing mmorpg pc games off my internet, after all legalization is always necessary as for this video this notification history I have to admit that could have happened a long while ago but m k not bad 🤔 Android: Yea one of my guys finally grew the brains to come up with that cool idea n besides peeps do kind of complain about notifications they miss and can’t get it back for I dunno what reasons n are too tired to check so yea this made sense anywhos *licks away at a lollipop* 🙂🍭 Microsoft Windows: Well that’s good head back to your room to do some studying up on advanced technology Google will check up on you to make sure you’ve done it thoroughly and correctly before you come to me to take the test later tonight after dinner *leaves* 🙂 Android: Ok Microsoft I got it I’ll see you in a bit dad 🙂 Google: Yup I’ll help you after I’m done helping out Chrome up the room for the baby it’ll only take 10 mins k son? 😉 Android: Ok got it dad 🙂

    @Jermiah Russell The entire UI is bloatware. Samsung uses worthless frameworks that are unoptimized and slow down the phone heavily. They also include a bunch of useless background components to power their useless services like Bixby, which usually wakelock the device. So yes- bloatware is still an argument to avoid Samsung devices. This isn't even getting into the absolutely abhorrent software update schedule they (Samsung) have
