    You know how on most apps you swipe left to right and you get the menu drawer, with the settings, help, display and all other tabs.

    If you go to the full gestures navigation, now instead of pulling out the app menu drawer, if you swipe left to right you get a back arrow (<) and it takes you to the previous screen or it shuts down/minimizes the app. It's fixed and you cannot change it.

    That is annoying...
    Gotcha.
    I like the two button navigation myself.

    I agree with you T. As I said above, I'm sticking with Nova Launcher and the two button nav for now.

    As for the battery, so far I have noticed a faster discharge but I'm sure it's down to the fact that, since the upgrade, I've been hammering the phone more than usual checking things out. We will see over the next few days.

    Overall, I'm quite happy with 10.

    One thing I thought was odd, I now have more free storage than before. I thought it would be less. Maybe it's because the fresh instal has cleared out some dross.

    One thing that I find annoying is that you no longer have the battery percentage shown on the lock screen.

    So it appears tap and hold brings out the app menu drawer.

    Me too T. Are you using the gestures now? I'm still using the two button nav.

    Glad to say my battery is as good as it was prior to the upgrade.

    I did switch to full gestures to try it out. Works pretty well.

    I also dislike the fact that the camera and microphone shortcuts are gone from the locked screen as well.

    The battery life has taken a hit for me. In about four hours, with moderate use, I lost forty percent of the battery. In the same amount of time with the amount of usage I'd have been down to between 75-70%.

    Also... in terms of storage space despite the update of the OS and quite a few apps, never mind all the "cleaning" and deleting I've done...I have lost about 1GB of memory on my device...

    I have also noticed that the device is not as smooth as before, in terms of functionality and responsiveness.

    So far Android 10 has been a mixed bag.

    One thing I should have mentioned earlier, my 10 update came together with the November security patch which I already had. I still haven't received the December patch.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    Same here. Got the November one. No December security patch. But the Google Play Store...has a separate security patch apparently and that one is for December...🤔

    Thanks for your reply but I've scoured the Play Store and can't find any reference to it. Guess I'll have to wait till Nokia pushes it.

    He's referring to the Google Play System Update. I'm not sure about Nokia but in other phones running 10 it can be found in settings - about phone - tap 'Android version' - tap 'Google Play System Updates'. If you can't find it this way use the search feature in the settings.

    Thanks a bunch. Yes, found it straight away following your instructions. It shows as up to date with the December patch. Must be a **** up with Nokia. They should really use a calendar. Lol.

    Haha. Nah, don't worry. The same discrepancy exists on many different devices, including mine as you can see on my screenshot. Different security patches.

    Nah. You have to enable the "All Gestures" setting by yourself. Now you will see that there are three settings available, instead of two like on Android 9 Pie.

    You have the classic Android navigation buttons, the pill and back arrow and the new Android 10 getures. (You have to go to "System" in the Settings" to find the gestures, the shortcut to gestures that you could get when pressing directly on the home screen is fine.)

    And if your Security Patch has gone back to the November 2019 one (happened to me) go back to Systems and check your software update. The December Security Patch is there and you'll have to download it separately.

    And yes, so far my battery appears to be going much faster...

    As for the system wide Dark Mode, my Gmail and Google feeds are not yet supported so they are still white/light...
    Neither of my two devices can find the December update.
    I have to send my original one in for warranty repair because now I got the dreaded USB port issue.

    So I have two devices on Android 10 with the November security patch. Very odd.

    It's Christmas so I'm allowed to be screwed up lol.

    I think that the next security patch will fix it.

    It's late KB but at least you received it before the end of the year.

    Will be interesting to know how you find it. Oh, and Merry Christmas.
