    It looks like Google may have just outed the official name of Android O a few days before the intended announcement on August 21st. The Google+ video they posted was titled "GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids (1).mp4". Of course this doesn't officially confirm anything and you know Google could just be trolling us with that seemingly accidental flub. The new version of Android could be named after the easter egg hidden within the developer preview builds "Octopus". That seems unlikely. We will find out for sure on Monday!

    I've pretty much don't care about the new versions, any more. Running MM now, but have run Nougat and I can't really tell the difference.

    there was one difference that affected me - the brightness scroll bar. they buried it inside the settings instead of being on the notifications dropdown. made it harder to find it in the sun. used to be able to use it without seeing the screen :)

    Otherwise, like you, I see no real differences.

    I think those waiting for the update would have been surprised if it wasn't called oreo.

    I had one or two compatability issues with a few hacks I employ that sent me back to MM and it's still buggy, but I have a few different approaches that I might try in Nougat again.

    My device is almost 3 years old....don't expect to ever see Oreo, anyway.

    I think the updated quick menu from the notification shade improved soooooo much from MM to Nougat

    I do not see a lot of the changes in the coloring, backgrounds and such because I use a third party launcher.

    Notification bar, smaller fonts, but now I am getting used to this. Others? Different UI, small and round. Ummm, OK, there may be some other differences, but I don't remember, since I have used a few months of Nougat.

    For Me the Biggest things i care about with Newer Builds are Battery Life and Memory Optimization. No one wants to Upgrade and have their Device turn into a Laggy Battery Hog.

    I haven't noticed in some time, probably since 5.0....maybe because the Turbo has a big battery.

    The ability to optimize individual apps is big, but I think this actually started in MM. I'm constantly having to change this for individual apps and widgets that are too aggressively managed (I think developers need to bake this into their setting so you can get it exactly right).

    To me, display is still the monster battery drain. I think I'd just assume not having a bunch of apps and services underperform to get an extra 60 minutes of battery.
