    Post Apps using “display over apps” crash instant

    What apps? Because some time ago Google made changes to how this works and apps must ask user to grant them permission to draw over other apps. When upgraded to a newer version of Android, permission was not removed for already installed apps. But on new device, you most likely have to grant...

    Post Pixel 5 - 5G Certification

    Google recently updated its support page about 5G network compatibility to explicitly state that 5G will work only on carriers that Google enabled it.

    Post Pixel 5 - Charging (Connects and disconnects over and over)

    I've encountered this, but only with my 5 port Aukey charger that does not support PD on its USB-C port and it happens once battery is charged over 10%. Someone on Reddit also had this only with 5 port charger without PD support. Issue does not happen on official charger from the box for me.

    Well, there is strictly Android TV version now (it was released with software update for some Sony TVs), but it also fails to work on other devices (says software update is required) - Source.

    Post Pixel 3 allows carrier-customized firmware?

    Currently every phone must be approved/whitelisted by carrier for VoLTE / VoWiFi or you must download carrier's app for VoWiFi (if they released it). It's a good will of a carrier if they approve phones that are not sold by them.

    Yes, it was visible and I could connect to it, but there was no connection to the internet. So your problem must be something different then.

    Post Q Beta

    Check if your APNs hasn't changed to IPv6. I know that with my operator (Orange Poland) hotspot for some reason doesn't work when IPv6 is used, so I have to switch to IPv4.

    Post Nokia 8 Android 9 PIE updates

    Well, Nokia 8 went on sale in September 2017 and it already got two big updates (Oreo and Pie) which is usually limit for flagships. My guess is it won't get Q and from now on it will be getting only security updates for another year.

    It is. But first of all it requires re-partitioning of the device memory (unless it had unused partitions that can be re-purposed for Treble, like in OnePluse case from what I remember). Second, it's the kind of software feature that is hard to do by community developers, since it requires a...

    Post Nokia 8 Android 9 PIE updates

    Both are OTAs, difference is that this is something called "full OTA". It means that it can be installed practically on any firmware as it's like full ROM image. Typically you get something called "differential OTA" which can be installed only over specific firmware versions (since it only has...

    This is change made by Google in AOSP due to notches and AFAIK no OEM changed this behavior for phones without notches to shows as many icons as possible.

    Post Nokia 8 Android 9 PIE updates

    Nope, HMD joined Android One in February 2018, so every device released before that date is not part of it. Also, all Android One devices have logo of this program included in bootanimation and most of them have this logo on the back of the device too.

    Post Modded Google Camera with HDR+ on Nokia 8

    It makes sense, as algorithm itself is better than HMD's. Besides, with that many pictures for one shot, you loose ZSL (Zero Shutter Lag) and can easily end up with a blurred photo due to hand movement and long capture process.

    Post Nokia 8 Android 9 PIE updates

    None are lost, it's just Pie on Nokia 8 is lacking new features that are available on other devices, but are not part of AOSP.

    Post Nokia 8 Android 9 PIE updates

    Adaptive Battery is actually not part of AOSP (at least not entirely) - from what I gathered it requires Device Health Services package from Google that is not part of AOSP (or it requires separate package for calculations, but so far everybody uses the one provided by Google).

    They say that beta users will get next (January I guess) security patch before getting MR (most likely with February security patch) since official Pie will be the same as Beta minus Feedback app. At least that's how I understand it. What concerns me more is that means, official build also will...

    First of all he is talking about Nokia 8 Sirocco, not normal Nokia 8. Second, Nokia most likely did not want pay for L1 certification for a beta and are waiting with it for a stable release.

    Seems like Google has removed this in Pie and plans to add it in a "future release" - source.

    Post Nokia 8 Android 9 PIE updates

    I think Sirocco uses this styles settings as Nokia 8 and Sirocco were the only ones using Glance instead of Ambient Display AFAIK. After those two HMD seems to have dropped Glance, possibly due to it being more limited than Ambient Display in case of notifications support.

    Based on Oreo beta from last year, we'll get OTA to stable version. But you may have to wait for it the same as everybody else still on Oreo with your model/operator/country combination (Oreo beta participatnts didn't get stable OTA immediately after its release as one would expect).

    Post Where is gesture navigation in Nokia 8 Pie beta?

    There won’t be any as nav gestures require software nav buttons. We just get new multitask UI and that’s all. Also, to have that new UI with dock and access to apps drawer you must use system launcher. If you change it to 3rd party one (like Nova), you’ll only see recent apps on multitasking...

    Looks like it's not recognized by Beta Labs as Nokia 8 (no phone image). I'd try to remove it and register again. If this doesn't help maybe beta is not available for you variant/operator/country.

    For me it looks like HDR+ is not working at all on this build. I use MGC_6.1.021_FINAL_V1b_A8.1+.apk and here HDR+ works properly, but Night Mode on the other hand seems to have less "power" (but it works and images are a little bit brighter than in normal mode).

    Post [LINK] Internal OTA update to Android PIE for Nokia 8

    Digital Wellbeing has to be installed sperately from Play Store and it's available officially only for Pixels and Android One devices (Nokia 8 has clean Android, but it's not part of Android One program), so you would have to install manually via APK.
