Android 10 Features

Gesture Navigation: Welcome the new but optional Gesture-based navigation system on Android 10. It refrains from using any virtual buttons or even sliders and sticks to a minimalist yet futuristic approach where a slim slider at the bottom can do anything from taking you to the Home screen to app previews while the left & right edges can be used to go backward, a diagonal swipe will initiate Google Assistant and more.

Dark Theme: Google has officially introduced the Dark theme which changes the theme from usual whites to black. It takes away the excess strain on the eyes especially at night while consuming less battery than the usual theme. Almost all Google apps support Dark Theme and dozens of other third-party apps support it while many others are working to feature it as well.

Location Controls: The new OS brings his/her location controls to the user. Instead of using it at all time, now, the users can grant access to the location for any apps either at all time or deny it completely or just use it only when the app is active.

Privacy Controls: The user has now full control over privacy where they can select if an app is granted all the permission needed all the time or when it uses or never at all. Control app and web activities using a single tap within the Settings app with enhanced privacy controls.

Why isn’t my phone eligible to get Android 10?

You might be wondering why your phone isn’t listed as eligible or even under “could get” list I created above but the thing is, there are simply too many factors and variables that can render any phone compatible or incompatible to get further upgrades. First up, Google develops an Android version which releases as stock for Pixel smartphones which are manufactured keeping the drivers upgraded to be compatible for a number of updates during the time the phone is released.

Since there are hundreds and thousands of configurations across more than 20 brands that support Android OS, this gives a lot of moving parts. First up, your phone must have the minimum required specifications needed for the upgrade. It must have specific drivers for the said upgrade. Furthermore, the OS is rolled out in a series where it goes from Google to OEMs where the latter does some changes with skins which delays the rollout a bit. Then there are devices which are locked under a carrier or telecom operator which again delays the rollout further. Since Android OEMs release tens of phones a year which means they won’t update all the phones launched while supporting all those released previously and thus, many of the phones aren’t updated even within the support period.

What should I do if my phone ain’t getting any upgrade?

If your phone is not supported to get Android 10 and you still want to try something new, try custom ROMs. Since you are using an Android OS which is open-source, you have limitless choices to make with custom ROMs where many of ‘em are based on AOSP. These custom ROMs are no joke when it comes to their installation but once set up, you can try a completely new UI with tonnes of features to try that the stock Android wouldn’t have yet.

You can try LineageOS 17 (upcoming custom ROM based on Android 10), or try from custom ROMs makers such as Havoc OS, Pixel Experience, Resurrection Remix OS, etc. Hope this extract satisfies your query on what you should do if your phone isn’t eligible for Android 10.
