The Pixel phones from Google have taken the world by storm. No one expected Google to have made this years phones. Even more surprising was the name change from Nexus to Pixel. All of these aside; the Pixel is easily the best Android phone of the year. This is the first crack Google has had at making its own phone and it has came out to be this good, so what is to be expected next year when Google releases their second generation Pixel phones?
Now that everyone is being flooded with new features and refinements in the surprisingly early Android N preview 1 I decided to get in on it a little bit. However, I am not showing off any new features or anything. I’m addressing possibly the biggest change in preview 1 of Android N: The notifications.
