    Well that's very unfortunate. Beta 6 should land in the next couple of weeks.

    If you google the beta release schedule it looks like next week for beta 6 with the final finished copy being released to all near the end of August. So one more beta coming soon. With the smoothness of beta 5 I’m not expecting to notice much difference. I think I read it would just be some polishing and nothing much new for the last beta.

    This beta hasn't been too bad. Still a few misbehaving apps. Often my phone randomly locks when I am in the middle of doing something. This is the most annoying bug.

    The only couple things I want to fix are with the always on Ambient display. Battery meter doesn't usually show and disappears, and my notifications don't automatically visually show on my own ambient display. Those two issues have to be fixed, otherwise, I'm I'm a pretty happy camper. Oh yeah and I forgot, Google bring back the good battery life in beta 4!

    Yep what you said with a massive emphasis on that battery life. It's been woeful on Beta 5

    It'll be nice to get 3rd party launcher support back soon too

    oh dude, more than woeful it's been pathetically depressy on beta 5. Up until beta 5, battery life and Android Q on my 3XL was freaking amazing! on my normal day today at usage time I can get a date and a half of juice charging off via USB in my car with Android Auto! Now, I have to charge at least once a day. Yeah the ambient display lack of visual notifications and lack of battery meter drives me nuts!

    I sure hope the final version is solid..... I've grown pretty used to pie being as stable as a brick with awesome battery life, there's nothing about Q I need, I might just refuse the update for a while till I see if it's actually an improvement in any way :O

    I'm not big on change unless it's change for the better ;-)

    All I want is for my Ambient display always on to show my notifications properly, and for my battery life to be amazing again other that I'm a happy camper.

    As a non beta user, I would love to hear some feedback regarding the navigation features on this last beta. Also will 3 button placement return?

    2- and 3-button navigation are both still available options under Gestures in Settings.

    But were there Game Driver Preferences and ANGLE Preferences under Developer Options before? I don't game, so I dunno. The Override Force Dark toggle still doesn't survive a reboot on my 2XL.

    Yeah full gesture navigation is now disabled for third party launchers...oh well after all they did say it would only be temporary.

    Hmm.. sorry Action Launcher for now...

    I love the fact for the home screen at least, on FGN the navigation button goes away.

    Beta 6 was just released, downloading right now. I pray to God day they fixed the battery life issue, always on Ambient display notification problem, and double tap to wait gesture issue.

    Battery still seems woeful but I'll give it a day or two to reserve judgement. Night Sight has replaced Panorama in the camera app I see too
