    The mish-mash of Product Sans and Roboto continues. :(

      It's a puzzling choice. Why use two sans fonts with little to distinguish between them? Just looks like a mistake.

      At least pick something with a bit of contrast, like a slab serif and a sans.

        I don't get why they don't just stick with Roboto throughout. It's pretty much a perfect on-screen typeface.

        Of course not and yes, but then use an angled corner instead of rounded one.

          I agree. If you're not all in on the edge-to-edge bezel like the iPhone X then keep the corners square or round them far more subtly. This just eats into screen space unnecessarily.

    The real debate comes next year with Android Q.

    Not a ton of well-known desserts starting with the letter Q.

    I like how, when you scroll past a section a little, it scrolls back up. It's like fullpage.js but not really a complete scrolljack.

      I actually thought that was a pretty cool idea to stop people whining about scrolljacking.

      This is nice, but not sure if the user likes it...

      I didn't like that at all! Let the user scroll wherever they want. It's like watching TV, and whenever you divert your eyes a bit it reaches out and turns your head towards itself — "LOOK AT ME".

        Exactly, they can predict how I'll use my phone, but now how I'd like to scroll the page :(

    For the settings interface, the headers are starting to look a little iOS'y. Same with that "Hourly/Daily" selector. The amount of AI included in this system is worrisome with regards to privacy, because for it to operate correctly, they really need access to pretty much everything you do.

    Soon we won't be able to live without the help of AI in our OS's. I guess we'll give up on privacy, or maybe people will start creating virtual characters of themselves which they'll change regularly so the real person isn't identifiable, but then we lose our identity behind memes I guess.

    Ironic for a release that's all about being "tailored to you", I found almost everything on this page slightly off. All the animations were too fast for me to understand what was happening, the transitions between sections (eg. between battery + brightness) were too fast for me to actually read, and the scroll-jacking kept implying that I was scrolling "wrong".

    PS. Is this the correct use of ironic? I can never tell.
