    I just want a decent native backup, which will backup app data for all apps.

    The people at work that have upgraded to this don't seem to care for it. What do you guys think?

    Took a long hard look at the newest Huawei flagship soon available in Nov. Huawei Mate 20 (still sporting Mate 2 and luv 'em).

    It's hinted should be in market distribution in USA with Android Pie!

    Google remotely changed the settings on a bunch of phones running Android 9 Pie

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    I'm going to put it on my 5yr old Nexus 6 when things shake out a bit more at good old XDA.
