    It looks like the DP 3 for the Android P beta is live (thx for notifying me -- @Itsa_Me_Mario ). The OTA is still rolling out so some see it and some don't but you can side load it from these images -- https://developer.android.com/preview/download-ota

    The article above helps to show what has changed. I know some people here will be happy to see the "Clear all" return in the apps menu . Google seems to be listening!

    Clear all for those who wanted it is back. Do not disturb is a little different too.

    Given what I've read on reddit, stay away from Night Mode. It apparently severely darkens the screen and toggling it off doesn't make things bright again.

    Man, my 2 XL took about a solid 15 minutes to install the OTA. I was biting my nails hoping it wouldn't bork.

    On the plus side, though, my fps seems a lot snappier now. Ironic given the complaints I've read about the June O update. And I've finally got the weather icon on my lockscreen! Sweet.

    Wait. I take some of that back. DP3 must've turned the AOD on. So much for an fps fix.

    I got an install error in step 1/2 on my first try. Did a "Retry" and got to step 2/2. Took a long time to install, but it ended successfully.

    Your screen is just darker in general? I just installed and I don't notice any difference in my screen brightness.

    Another bit of info from XDA via reddit:

    The brightness slider behavior slightly changed in this preview: It now changes the brightness logarithmically instead of linearly. Before this preview when it was linear, about 90% of the brightness was controlled by the lower 20% of the left of the slider. The old 50% brightness was almost identical to 100% max brightness, and the old 5% brightness was significantly brighter than 0% brightness. Now, the change in perceptual brightness is now more uniform as you increase or decrease the slider.

    The brightness slider position should spend most of its time throughout the day near-max now, but that's fine. The brightness of the panel hasn't changed, just the behavior of the brightness slider, and for the better. Other OEMs have had a logarithmic brightness slider since forever, Google just only now caught up with this standard physics-based implementation.
