    My dad got the update today. And so I checked on software update for my phone and it downloaded and installed the new update.

    It's weird looking. I don't know if I like it yet. It almost feels like getting a new phone again because I'm adjusting to the changes or trying to adjust.

    I updated last night. Cleared cache, and haven't noticed any issues so far. I like that it seems much smoother and quicker than MM. I hate the blindingly bright look of Nougat. Fortunately, you can tone most of the UI down by using a dark theme, and there are lots of free ones, but there are a few things that apparently can't be changed. The most noticeable of those is the notification shade, which is just obnoxiously bright no matter what you do. Google has got the worst UI designers in the industry, I've decided. Each new version of MD just gets worse than the one before.
    There's also this blue filter thing , you can use. I noticed it. I can't remember how I accessed that.

    Hold the volume up, home & power button until it boots. Use the volume keys for navigation and the power button for enter.

    It can be accessed from the quick settings by swiping down twice from the top or once with two fingers. You can access the blue light filter settings by long pressing.

    So far it's not bad. The text anti-aliasing is sharper but the fonts are smaller and narrower. The update turns off energy-saving by default so you have to go into settings and turn it back on or your battery usage goes up. Some of the menu changes I could do without (eg screen brightness should be one-swipe away, not two.) So far seems to be stable.

    You can tap on the down arrow next to the brightness slider and put it back in top.
