M dan dark mode and new control options. Nokia got Android 10

The Nokia Tradition brand promises users to quickly and regularly update their device to the latest version of the system. For this year, two models will be selected for the beta program. This year, this model is type 8.1, which is part of the test mode and will be updated to the final Android 10.

Android 10 is a rarity, except for several new smartphones (Sony Xperia 5, now Huawei Mate 30 and of course the new Pixels 4) is a device with this system small. The update was received mainly by old Pixel models, most users of the device that took part in the beta testing of Android Q, but so far.

The user of the Nokia 8.1 smartphone was one of the first to complete the update. Although it is not as popular in the Czech Republic as its predecessor, the Nokia 7 Plus, it is still a remarkable model. The update will make my user attractiveness a bit.

Nokia basically uses Android with only a minimum of rights, and preparing the final version of the system is not as difficult for its programmers as it is for manufacturers with their own graphical superstructure of the system. Therefore, it will be relatively fast in the competition than the competition.

After the 8.1 model, Nokia’s attention will shift to other types, and users of the 7.1 and 9 PureView models should be able to drive the new system by the end of the year. For about half a year, there is a full upgrade of the 6.1, 6.1 Plus and 7 Plus models, in the first quarter of this year, users of type 2.2, 3.1 Plus, 3.2, 4.2, 1 Plus, 5.1 Plus and 8 Sirocco can be used on Android 10 and up to half year, the update should also reach models 2.1, 3.1, 5.1 and 1.

Fast and annoying

In the case of our test piece, on which we ran the beta version of the Android Q, the update was less than 1.5 GB, it was a matter of a moment and the update itself took place. The whole process from download to final restart of the phone after the update took about fifteen minutes. The coincidence is that the user is in full control.

The update is downloaded and installed (this is a novelty) in the background, so the user can use the phone at any given time. True, only some functions or applications can pause the update process and thus prolong it completely, but in this case the user has the opportunity to manually move the process. In our case, when the phone was upgraded from the beta version of Android Q, the complete update was installed in the background, nor would you have to restart the phone.

A final restart is then only required for the phone to boot with the new system, there will be no installation during the restart. Among other things, this minimizes the time when the user is offline without access to any functions of the phone. In addition, the restart itself must be confirmed by the user, the phone will not be restarted under his hands. It is therefore fully under control.

New versions of the system pin the user a dark mode and new control options. Like the two pixels in Nokia 8.1, it has all the possibilities: the most conservative is the classic control of virtual keys in lit, then it is controlled by half of the gestures that Android 9 has, and now it is possible to choose the fully controlled gestures that Android 10 .

As for the look of the user interface, the Nokia 8.1 has remained very well-known and familiar from the Google Pixel smartphone. In the beta version, Nokia experimented with a slightly different color and other shapes of icons. These are the standard circles, in the beta version Nokia flirted with an angular design in the form of a square with rounded corners. However, the shape of the icons and the color of the highlighted items in the system change in the menu of development options.

Of course, there are new elements for privacy protection, which are part of the Android 10, or features for me annoying notifications and the ability of the user to focus on the next round. As part of the Family Link functions, people can only set rules for their phone. Overall, the first impressions after installing the update are included: the phone is fast and smooth.
