    I swear the hype for Android updates is massively less than what it used to be. I remember seeing masses of videos covering each pre-release version in-depth in years gone by, but this time, I was barely aware 13 was even on the horizon until today

      Because we achieved what we were looking for in an android phone.
      You have the heavy storage
      The large and sustainable battery life
      Cameras so clear it can see where your hair starts
      A screen big enough to rival your TV at home
      The security is the only thing that MIGHT be one step behind apple but I'm sure that as well is gonna change soon enough
      ....what more do you need lol

      Apple users with 8000 likes on this comment all sucking each other's copium sticks 😂😂😂😂😂😂! You got to love when a bunch of lames get together and talk about something! For me it always comes back to the camera every time I Apple use a chose me the camera is better and we do a camera shoot out It's kind of funny how they lose and stop talking Even when it comes to video they always say Apple got the best video but when you break that pixel out it's kind of funny how the whole narrative shifts in real life!

      I know you tell Apple to stop copying Android if nobody cares about Android anymore It seems like Apple cares more about Android than Apple users do that should let you know everything right there Android is the true innovator and it's the only thing worth looking at!

    App specific language support is awesome! My native language is German but I very much prefer to use my phone in English cause English is the native language of the OS and I'm a big fan of language acquisition through immersion. However, I'm glad that I can now use apps like the journey planer for my local public transportation agency in its original language as well as the German version of Google Maps cause the English A.I. voice doesn't speak out German street names.

    With the Pixel and Galaxy series, Android fragmentation is a thing of the past. Pixels got Android 13 right away in August. The newest Galaxy's got One UI 5 in October. My nearly 3 year old A71 got it in November. I hear Samsung is working with Google to bring One UI updates even sooner. Plus 4 or 5 years of updates and security patches.

      @Brian same boat love the pixel 6 pro been with Samsung with the S8+ and note 10+ love the fact that I can delete anything without bloatware especially with Samsung stuff honestly some companies need to give options to what you can do for your phone instead of drowning our throats with useless crap you won't use and just drain battery without using it especially with Samsungs audio is just garbage with a amp/dac (fiio btr7) pixel sounds waay better vs Samsungs overblown fake audio

    The biggest feature I had been looking forward to on Android 13 is the native braille support built into TalkBack. However, I and many people in the blind community are very disappointed to discover that Google still has not added support for the modern Hid braille standard, which has been around for several years now. This means that people using braille displays that support this standard cannot use braille on Android. Speaking from the perspective of someone who relys on braille for communicating with people, I find this lack of support from Google extremely disheartening.

      And the broil support on iPhone is trash watch how Google shows Apple how to do braille support. Just like all the other disabled people choosing Android over iOS in general because Android just has better accessibility features That's also widely known in the community as well. Apple doesn't care about their users or user experience That's why Android is better.

    • Taurean Smoke
      Taurean Smoke 16 days ago

      If you're only looking for native bro support in Android 13 you're a clown! I find it funny when you read a comment and you can barely clearly tell that it was written by an iPhone user. First off if you haven't gotten excited for an Android update that's because you have an iPhone. To be honest saying you're not excited for an Android update just make you sound ignorant when Android has bigger releases than iOS does. What was the last big release Apple has done a lock screen redesign that everybody hates a new notch that everybody hates. There is nothing that iPhone has that people want. Apple only has 20% market share Android has 80 That's because more people are vastly more excited for Android than they are for Apple! Please Apple user stop spreading ignorance nobody cares about your phones or your updates. Or simple things that Apple steals from Android like back tap. Literally everything Apple adds they literally steal from Android That's because Apple is more excited about Android updates than they are about their own updates because when Android updates something that mean it's time for Apple to somehow get new ideas lol!

    I just bought an A53 5G as a low cost way to try out Android for a possible move from iOS. I'm having fun with Android 12 mainly because of the infinite customisability of the system. It's a tough thing to move from one to the other but I'm getting used to Android by the day and think I may be finally able to wean myself away from Apple. I feel there is much better value in the Android phone world and I'm willing to take a shot now that updates are available for a few years on the Samsung top tier and some of the mid tier phones. BTW, with a nice case you'd never know the A53 was not a top tier phone. I'm looking forward to the Android 13 update.

      Until your new android phone is no longer update supported in 2025. My Sony phone and tablet has just 2 years of support, then nothing. My apple stuff is supported many years later.

    I think Android doesn't need the "big number updates" as much as back in the days. A lot of things in Android can update without the system update, like Google play system, dialer, launcher, Bluetooth somehow (as I was told), security patches, camera, etc. And most of those updates, also update on older Android versions. Don't get me wrong, it's nice to see new features, but we see them throughout the year, bit by bit.

    • Gyaneshwar Thakur
      Gyaneshwar Thakur 3 days ago

      @anime pussy I think what he is trying to say is you get some of the basic features on your older devices without getting the newer Android version with some tweaks.
      Recently I damaged my phone so I turned to my older moto g3 turbo running Android 6. I noticed that it has nearby share feature and you can also turn on dark mode across all apps if you turn on battery saver. And few other (which I forgot) features. Isn't it amazing that they are still keeping these older devices updated. Perhaps it is because it's stock Android.
      The device runs smoothly and nearly 99 percent of the apps I needed are compatible with that device.

    Here's a practical example of why I'm looking forward to setting apps to different languages: my phone is in French, but I live in Germany. When my boiler's monitoring app notifies me of an issue, I get the message in French, so I have no idea what the issue is called in German when I want to contact my technician. I have to change my entire phone's language setting to be able to see the error message in German, and then report it to the technician. And then I get to switch the phone language again 😅

      @codars are you insane my guy? OP's talking about a minor inconvenience to him. It's not trivial to know the correct translation of a technical term for a machine component. The best way to be sure you're saying the right word to the technician is to translate the app. A native could be 90yo and not know the meaning of a technical term for a boiler part. Do you know a 100% ofthe words in your language?

    I think one of the useful feature is the built in messages app that enable us to send messages or mms tru online (chat features like the iMessage) but the downside is majority of the company making android phones like to skin everything and change the overall stock like to candy-ish themes and stuff so in reality Messages is pretty much useless. 🙁

    So Android 13 is the much more refined version of 12 along with some more quality of life changes. Nice. Android 12 and alot of the phones that has it definitely turned some people off because of the bugs and lack of fixes. Hopefully this will be a much better year. And I hope more phones get long term Android update support

    The splintered OS-base is Androids biggest weakness. I'm on a Pixel phone for that reason, but I wish there were some other manufacturers that went for stock android (with a couple of apps perhaps) so they could also keep up with new versions.. I think that would be good for competition. Imagine if Samsung offered a stock alternative.. I'd be very tempted.

    Specific app language is a game changer for me.
    I use English for almost everything but want my maps to appear in my native language since that's the language all the streets and business are in.
    You could do that internally in Maps before, but it wouldn't carry over to Android Auto where it would still be English.
    Hopefully this will solve that.

      Android Auto is long overdue for an overhaul. There are some things it does that are just inexplicable. Like how I can't open Maps on my phone while it's connected. I know we're not supposed to use phones while driving, but is the best solution really picking up the phone at a red light to use its keyboard while still looking at the text box on the car display to see if the word was input correctly? Or like how you cannot access your car settings without exiting the AA application. Or how text notifications block a good chunk of your screen, right over the navigation directions and the top of your map (the most important part of the map). The whole app and car interface needs a really thorough refresh because they're adding features without addressing very base-level flaws, and that's gonna come back to bite them someday.

    The Android ecosystem is huge cutting across various devices and with specific functions that might not require update hence the fragmentation. Also my take is that many Android users don't bother to upgrade and some can't afford the data required to do so.

    With Android at least on low and mid range phones you generally can expect at most one major update. My two year old Huawei is still on Android 10 and never will get 11. They hide that so that the phone does not tell the version at all.
    But then I really do not want updates as they can bring problems. My Nokia 3.4 got Android 11 and at the time gestures started to vibrate so had to switch to three button navigation. I generally am happy with the device as I bought it.

    The following changes to Android 13 from Android 12-accessibility to to features-are cumbersome. Accessibility to Google Wallet, Power Off, Restart, Screen Shot were all very conveniently accessible from the Power Button with Android 12. With Android 13, invariably, the Screen Shot is accidentally engaged when scrolling up to return to the Home Screen. All Screen Shots cannot be taken from the Button at the bottom of the Screen. Having to take a Screen Shot using the Power Button simultaneous with Down Volume Button is just lame and inconvenient. Having to scroll down from the top of the Screen all the way down to the Screen Bottom to locate the Power Off/Restart feature is also very inconvenient. This is a classic case of fixing something that is not broken.

    The reason the language setting for individual apps is so popular, is for the following reason:
    Many apps are written by english speakers and don't have a German/French/Spanish etc. version. So what happens is, the app automatically uses google translate and individually translates the text based on your phones system language setting. This is extremely annoying because it gives out gibberish many times, since single lines of text often miss context for an accurate translation. Most people are fine with english even though it's not their first language.
    So before you had to change the phones system language to english just to understand what's going on in some apps. Now it seems you can set individual apps to english, which is most welcome.

      They have built in language resources. Using Google translate would batter data as well as be totally rubbish as there's no context. If they use gtrans then it's an awful hack.

    • Phil Knall

      I'd assume it would act the same way as if your entire phone was in that language. So apps that already have a translated version would switch to that, otherwise they'd stay in their main language. This is great because for example, google maps for Japan has way more detailed information in the local language.

      I'm an Android developer. As far as I know, an app itself never auto translates. It always goes to the default language set by the dev, if it can't find the language your phone is in. (Which is English in most cases). So if you see weird translations, that's probably because the devs or product owners were lazy and used google translate themselves for the actual translations.

    Per app language is a game changer. I'm French but like using my software in English for multiple reasons. However, some banking and transport apps will follow the English parameter, making things a bit weird (as the English version are more thought around them being used by travellers and foreigners).
    It also makes sense considering some apps like Discord provide in-app language selection. Having it at the OS level, like notification channels, make way more sense to me, as it's an OS-level parameter rather than an application level setting.
    However, it sucks a lot that Google, for some reason, decided to have developers opt-in to this rather than being the default.
    It was possible during the beta to change language for every app.
    Now, only a handful support it (and not even Google apps support it ...).
    I'm fearful it's going to end up as a dead feature, if the developers have to change a parameter when building their app.
    It's a rather niche use case, so not all developers will think about it, but it's a much needed QOL feature.

      @Lumilicious There is no trigger OR flag in Android which tells google that this app supports multilingual and this does not.

    I'm really looking forward to the separate language app setting. Listening to Japanese songs on Clip-Share music is a pain if they convert the native letters into Romaji.

      They really need to add this feature to Clip-Share Music itself tho.
      I've tried using it in Japanese but then you have the opposite problem - English song titles are shown in Japanese which is also annoying.
      It should really be as simple as adding the option "show everything in the original language" but for some reason they still haven't done that.
      Edit: As others have said best case would be what I said plus the option to set secondary languages that then don't get translated

    • Duong Trung
      Duong Trung 3 months ago

      @元祖芽衣ちゃん推し The only way for Clip-Share to display the correct language is to set the entire language locale to the preferred language, which takes so much time and downright dumb. I'm not sure how it's like with auto-translation from other languages to Japanese, but I know that Google translate has such a bad rep with how it handles Japanese language.
      I do agree that we're so neck-deep in globalisation, yet multi-billion dollar companies like Google can't be bothered to think about people who speaks more than one language. It blows my mind sometimes

    In general, the increasingly improving voice to text options have completely change the way I interact with my phone. The pixel Line has always had the best voice to text features, Gboard in general is OK, but the specific pixel ” faster typing” has always been impressive. Now that Apple has a better voice to text option, I would be curious to see your thoughts on comparing all of the devices now including Pixels, Samsungs, Apple and general androids etc. Thoughts?

    Android 13 update. Yes and no looking forward to the update. Overall improvements in performance, efficiency and stability. Yes looking foward. Mixed feelings about the esthetics. After more than 5 years I don't blike the forced esthetics of rounded corners. I want to choose between squared of and degree of "roundness" in the corners. Current style looks cartoonish and u uprofessional, and to a degree a "waste of visual space" . I like the more advanced widgets features. I think the upgrade to 16 colour palettes is too limited. No matter which version of android or company skin on top of android, I think limiting color options to me has always felt weird and highly curated.I see no reason to limit this. I'm not surprised the android update stats look the way they are. The problem is, I think beacuse there are so many different veraions with different chipsets, and different limited warranties on promised upgrades, there are android users that simply can't update to the newest update by design. I think if this was solved/unlocked contractually by android with oems, things would look differently in the stats. Secondly new upgrades aren't a guarantee old styling and featires a users liked will port over. This alone might refrain/hesitate end users to upgrade at all despite the benifits and hyped improvements. I think Apple has a more curated experience that the company pushes actively, from what I've experienced, with all its benifits and drawbacks.

I think a possible solution would be to make manufacturers open source the embedded software on network capable consumer devices after a certain period of them being discontinued under a MIT or GPL license, and let the community do it's thing, but even then I sure there's a million ways where that can go wrong lmao
      That doesn't really solve the problem of keeping the software up to date, but hey, at least you're free to do it yourself on your own devices if you want to

    I love the language setting, it has been my dream since I started learning Italian. I want to use my phone in Italian to improve my vocab but I don't want my twitter in Italian. Because when you search in twitter it brings up the result in the phone language first. So I can almost never find the tweet I want without scrolling for eternity. Also sometimes I don't feel comfortable enough in Italian to read the automatic translation of twitter in Italian from a language that I don't know.
    Theennnn there is the navigation thing. I live in Turkey but use my phone in English because it's more convenient for most apps but navigation apps pronounce the street names etc as if they are english names.
    I always wished that app designers would include language option but only a few of them do that. This language setting will solve it all.

    I think the Android fragmentation metric should be given less weightage. OS adoption are not a priority in many markets outside of Europe & US. Even if OS updates are provided there are people who do not care for those. I personally know family members (in Asia) who use 5+ year old smart phone, All they use is basic talk, text, some video calling and primarily WhatsApp. I am sure there are others who use a decade old phone to do the same.
    They do not update their phone ever for various reasons, It could be their only phone for the family , just lack the knowledge to take back ups etc. Bricking the phone can mean they are cut of from all communications.
    There are millions and millions of super cheap android phones out in the world so Android will never have the same level of adoption as iOS and that is ok.

    I'd love to see a re-review of the 6 Pro after android 13 to see if it's gotten better.

      I've had the 6 Pro since a few months after launch, and Android 13 has made it feel like the phone it was always supposed to be. Waaaaaay cleaner, more refined, and even the fingerprint reader is faster and more reliable.

      @Rod Elliott strangely had the same issue, but also can confirm its fixed now with 13

      I had a 6 Pro and returned it and got the 6 for the flat screen. I've had only one weird issue with Chrome not going to sites when I type them in randomly but that went away when I installed the 13 Beta.
