The bad thing about it is that you can't have dark mode on and a theme applied in the same time.
So far I like Pie, except for the status bar icons. Also, there are a lot of glitches with downloaded apps that aren't yet optimized for it.
Developers these days are rather lazy..

Well the quiche is nearby.
Hope there will be a support for a black dark mode.

Android 10 could be one of the smallest updates we'll get. Might as well still call it Pie.

I'm quite content with 9.0 since last August. Some hate the gestures but I grew accustomed to it since 2013 and two years before that with webOS.

Pie is my all-time favorite update followed by Nougat, Marshmallow, and then KitKat. The biggest update before Pie was Ice Cream Sandwich. Not Lollipop. Anything with cream and pie seems delicious.

Awesome, so still no need to upgrade my pixel XL.

Wow my $50 used Pixel will get Q before the Galaxy S10 series.
:-)

Hahaaaaaaaaaaaa Screenshot with Notch. Oh My God How stupid is Google. It's really sad to see Google is ignoring people's opinions. Android Pie is a mess, worst gestures ever and worst UI ever. Unfortunatelly Google only and only dos focus on the camera and nothing else. A phone is not all camera, camera is an important point but not all.

Am I the only one who thinks Google should slow down a bit?
Most of the content on play store is barely optimized for Pie and I'm sick of glitches and bugs with almost every app.

Android has been a joke after KitKat and Oreo brought a change. Google never finished one before jumping on to another. Oreo isn't even well baked yet, now Q??.

What is more important to me is the name of Android name because the name is so delicious. Q for Quality Street by Nestle, or any idea?

Android 9 Pie was a let-down for most fans.
It wasn't very stable, some of the features were okay but left mostly wanting. That's why most people are not angry if they don't get to update to it.

I think Android 10 Quiche, will be a much more refined version of Pie, and will have some really powerful under-the-hood changes. That way, it will be a meaningful jump from Android 7 Nougat, unlike the iterative improvements in Android 8 Oreo and Android 9 Pie.

Also Android 7 Nougat was a meaningful jump from Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, where the others 5.1 and 6.0 were again largely iterative improvements.

Android 5.0.2 Lollipop was a major jump from Android 4.4 Kitkat. And there were iterative improvements in Android 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 Jelly Bean.

While Android 4.0.3 Ice-cream Sandwich was a major jump from Android 3 Honeycomb and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. There were meaningful jumps in revisions of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Android 2.2 Froyo, Android 2.1 Eclaire, Android 2.0 Eclaire, Android 1.6 Donut, Android 1.5 Cupcake, and earlier.
