    If you are an enthusiasts then you have already heard by now that Google dropped the N preview. For those of you who have already flashed it what are your opinions?

    Keep in mind this is a preview so if you want to flash then beware as it may have bugs and issues. This is by no means meant to be a daily driver. If you want to flash the preview go to the link below.

    Have it downloaded on my 6P...I like the notification shade area and the ability to adjust display size.

    I like it so far. The notification pull down is a nice touch. And the additional functions to the recent key are nice too

    I'm going to load it on my 6P. I'll use my maxx as backup if needed.

    Did anyone notice the Pixel C has $150 off if you load Android N preview on it?

    I'm not because I know Dev previews still have some bugs, plus some apps may not work with the new build.

    With my minimal app list, I haven't had any issues yet. Haven't been on a GPS tracked run either though.

    Wow! I like the new quick reply for Messenger. It stays IN the notification shade instead of drawing a semi-transparent box over everything. Very nice.
