Nexus 5X: The Pros and Cons of Updating to Android 8.0 Oreo
Android 8.0 Oreo is finally out and even though Nexus 5X was launched back in 2015, it’s still eligible to receive it. In fact, eager Nexus 5X owners can get their hands on Google’s latest operating system ahead of everyone by enlisting in the Android Beta Program. However, this doesn’t mean that they should hurry up and download it because Android 8.0 Oreo is still experimental software. Nonetheless, today we’re going to go over the pros and cons of updating to Google’s latest operating system and see if it’s worth it.
Pros: Picture in Picture and New Emojis
The reason why smartphones are basically essential to our everyday lives is because we can do almost anything on them. While most people might use them just for entertainment purposes, smartphones can be so much more than that because people can also work on them. This is where Google’s newest picture-in-picture mode comes in. This mode brings any Android powered smartphone’s ability of multi tasking to the next level.
Everybody loves texting and Google knows that too well. Therefore Android 8.0 Oreo contains over 60 new emojis. Things get even better though since Google’s latest operating system also features redesigned emoji characters. Just as an example, Android 8.0 Oreo will contain new emojis such as an exploding head, shark, bee and even a mutton chop.
Cons: Experimental Software
Even though Google’s new operating system has been officially unveiled, this doesn’t mean that it will start rolling out anytime soon. Nexus 5X owners are among the first ones to get access to it through Google’s special Beta Program. However, this means that Android 8.0 Oreo is still experimental software and it contains its fair share of bugs. Therefore, Nexus 5X owners need to decide if Android 8.0 Oreo’s new features make it worth dealing with annoying bugs.
