Just bought a Pixel 4a, because my Essential PH-1 died overnight. It is going to be nice to get monthly security updates again and not need a Google One account to get more storage for my Photos.

I guess it's fine if your phone is too big. With a smaller phone (e.g. Pixel 4a) it would be nice to see a bit more efficient use of space in the notifications shade and quick-settings. But companies have decided that no one could possibly want a phone smaller than 6.7"

Android 13: "Guys, win phone design wasn't that bad... let's bring it to life again" :) Android 12 in a position where it is highly minimalistic, but still not minimal enough... It's not esthetically pleasing, yet it's not fully minimalistic and functional...

What I like about Android is that I can completely turn off all animations and transitions in the developer menu. I hope that option remains as although the animations look cool at first they get old quick, I don't care for slow animations. I prefer fast instant snappy.

I think what would be cool is you could set a base color, like OLED black, and then have android choose a highlight color based on your wallpaper. so you get OLED black base every time but the highlight color can change

They did it well but things like the icons are still inconsistent. For example the phone icon is a white phone with blue background, the messages is the same, but many apps have white background and those icons with a white wallpaper dont look good. See it at 0:55. Docs, Drive, Gmail, Files, etc... Android 12 got the rubber band effect at scrolling. The BMW unlock is cool, and the privacy and Google words in the same sentence is kind of funny :D I wanna see when Google will add App Tracking features. I`d say money talks. Still hate how Android updates come to different phones, like Samsung, One+, etc...

I really like the new design, specially this new philosophy of not being afraid of taking more space, but I do think that the new notifications screen not being transparent is going to take some functionality out of the new design.

Big buttons/sliders look horrible and lazy. Text overlays over two lines, less effective space usage. They probably do it to have the same ui for other devices that are not phones :/

@C-KRET if you check comments section under this video and web you will realize that these big icons and waste of space are the only complains other people have too. So maybe it's not just about me. Anyhow, I guess we will see how customizable it will be after the release.

@superulitka2 it's not about your specific wants and needs. It's how can the design serve the needs of the many. Older people don't even know how to switch on "easy mode" so that's why it's default.

@C-KRET that's might be true, but in such case I would prefer it as part of accessibility feature, rather than default. Or configurable one. Overall it's still a phone, not a cashier terminal they are making..
