    Android had it´s revolutionary makeover in the Honeycomb/ICS days. Apple had theirs with the transition to iOS7. I think at this stage updates are going to be evolutionary. I agree with you, that is a good thing. No need for jarring changes every year.
    ..but "jarring changes" is what everyone expects ever year.

    What do you guys think about the new multitasking view? I like the cards theme, but I think would make life difficult when using information from one window to populate fields in another.

    The notification bar have some issues IMHO. You need two swipes to fully open it. In kitkat you can open all notifications with a single up to down swipe, now, you must do two actions.

    I agree with you 100%, I flashed it today, and the animations are ugly, the notification menu, and multitasking were both steps backwards, and ugly, and the keyboard is horrendous! Thank goodness for the openness of android, cause things are gonna get changed, whether goggle does it or not lol.

    Performance and app comaptibilty are great but what got butchered is the notification bar and keyboard no lines on the keyboard really made it tough for me so I installed Swiftkey the second after I typed my google account in setup lol but overall performance is great on my end the snapdragon s4 pro really stands up good almost 2 years later ( of course some thanks goes to google for software optimization) but overall its nice let's just hope OEMS don't butcher it

    The option to revert to the oldest and second oldest keyboard layout is still in the advanced options of the keyboard

    ah that's disappointing. oh well, guess this is a developer preview after all. also, my backed up photos aren't showing up on my device, anyone have insight on that? i think i might revert back to kitkat over the weekend, nothing here that is intriguing enough for me to put up with the early adopter bugs lol

    Open Google+, click on "Everything" under your name and select photos and have it load from there. After that it should load from the Photos icon.

    Right under the red section, hit the arrow to open the menu.



    At the bottom there is the Photos icon, tapping that takes you to the same section as the icon shortcut does.

    I think Android L looks pretty awesome. Most OSs seem to be following a general tendency but each with its own implantation. I don't use Android but my wife does and I showed her this and she thought it was quite nice.

    Hey, is it just me or does it feel like Android L is more memory intensive. I'd like to think the animations would hamper the performance of lower spec android devices. KitKat was great for those devices.

    Light Flow kept rebooting my Nexus 5 in a loop, couldn't stay on for more than 10 seconds. Finally had to uninstall the app. Some serious lagging initially after installing all my apps, but everything working smooth since then. Stock e-mail app still has some lagging.
    Overall, I'm liking it so far. The new on-screen buttons aren't that bad, initially changes are tough.

    I liked the rolodex style of the notifications, reminds me of what various launchers were doing a while back but Google took it to a more advanced level.

    I'm actually liking it so far. The notification change is a little jarring. One swipe down for active notifications. Another swipe down to get at quick settings. Animations are fluid and pleasing. I don't mind the colors and the navigation bar is nice/simple. I don't understand the complaints about it being difficult to understand what they do. Overall, pretty good for a developer preview!

    Couple of issues of course with apps: Facebook comments are completely transparent, makes it hard to read. Twitter doesn't work at all (I just installed Falcon instead). Otherwise, I might keep at this as my daily driver for a week or so. Camera works just as good. Bluetooth works. Calls work. Texting/MMS works. The only issue I might have with are wakelocks, which I experienced but a reboot set things to rights. My only complaint about quick settings is they removed the battery indicator. :-( Not a huge deal but I hope they bring it back in the final version.

    Anyways, I like the direction stock Android is heading!

    I'd prefer the current multitasking to a carousel and I hate the new navigation button design. Hopefully the OEMs improve them

    Loaded it for a bit... even got it rooted.... Looks like. New UI layout is pretty slick. The notifications changes are nice too.

    As for the new nav buttons.... when I first saw them at I/O, I was a little hesitant. But seeing them on my phone, it doesn't look nearly as odd.... they don't look out of place or anything. So my first impression is pretty positive. Looks good, new UI direction is pretty cool.... I mean, it still looks and feels like Android, so it isn't like it is a huge departure. Just new.

    Depending on how many apps weren't compatible, I'd consider running it full time. Shame the MultiROM stuff isn't supported.
