These changes aren’t necessarily so hot… the permissions restriction & lockout seems to be a problem never addressed until it’s a crisis, with antivirus/malware tools all of a sudden needing blanket permission to use your camera & microphone without asking if it’s ok… or just don’t install the app.

There should be some app loading config similar to windows so you don’t get bloated apps loading themselves into memory willy-nilly. NO sign of my two most requested features though… better usb and on screen multi-tasking!! Otherwise, it’s all MEH, with the better hardware.

Finally, custom ROMs have had USB OTG for ages
