    My phone on beta 5 is smooth as hell. And there's commentary before, my battery life took a dive as did everyone else's but as far as the gestures in the UI, everything is now smooth come into you, nice and perfect. I even put my screen animations up at 2X just to watch the smoothness And the fluidity.

    Honestly, still testing out. Just fully charged my phone so I'll test it out all day long today, and report back. Yesterday at work, My battery drained out quicker than it should have but I'll continue testing

    I noticed Android Auto in beta 5 is much smoother and more responsive And it's actually is fully functional. I'm just waiting for the new revamped UI this summer!

    Good news re: my pixel 2’s battery. This morning I woke up to only the usual overnight drop and not the bigger losses I was experiencing since I installed beta 5. Now 2 hours later and it looks like it’s going down at the old usual rate. I’m hoping it’s settled itself back into its old comfort zone. Hopefully the rest of you will get some relief as well.

    Honestly, not really. And I redid them on battery saver mode on my phone to kick in at 45% battery versus 15% battery... At least temporarily until beta 6 is available ...

    My battery life is still pretty mad. My phone is on low battery warning at 33% even though using my camera I have late today but I did that on beta 4 without any battery loss issues. So in general, I don't understand what's going on. I could do the issue tracker which I should for Android Q...

    I know we've only just got Beta 5 but am I right in thinking Beta 6 will only be another few weeks away? 5 and 6 are normally close together right? Loving Beta 5 compared to 4 but battery anxiety is not for me. Having to carry around my Huawei Mate 20 Pro in my other pocket to share take some load of the 3xl.

    No, you're thinking right. 6 should be soon. 9.0 general release was Aug 6th last year, so staying with an August final release date would mean 6 should be fairly quick.

    I completely agree. as for when Android Q beta being finalized and production ready, Google had better figure out this battery issue. Being on battery saver mode officially for me all the time starting at 45% each time per charge cycle is crap!

    so, here's an update, I just reported the battery life issue to Google via issue tracker check out my screenshot...

    unfortunately, this is not true! Yesterday as you can tell, I submitted an official official bug report to Google developers for beta 5.

    also , what I have noticed normally on beta 5 is that is on the always on Ambient display, the battery life doesn't usually show for some reason.

    And yet another thing that I've noticed about beta 5 is that when you're in landscape mode full screen zoomed in on YouTube videos, when you go to swipe up to go to the home screen picture and fishing mode doesn't work YouTube video plays in the background then you have to go back into YouTube application to resume the video. in comparison, in portrait mode if you swipe up to go to the home screen picture and picture mode works just fine.
