Big Sur Beta new MacOS11.
I installed the Beta by subscribing to a Developer account on Apple and downloaded the Profile File to enable the MACBook to detect the Beta. After downloading 9.58GB of data it installed. My take is it is a better system in terms of graphics, in terms of speed, in terms of aesthetic. Keep posted. There are some bugs to iron out.

My Pixel has now been sent back and I must say if you like the stock experience then it will be fast and snappy and updates will please including the Android 11 beta. My experience was good but found Android rather plain. I was not overall impressed. I have a Note 10 and for me the whole experience is so much better.

Have had Android 11 running a few days and being honest for it being a Beta it is remarkably stable and optimised. Most Google apps were updated to run on the new firmware. Hoping that Beta 2 will bring greater refinement. Battery life has now settled. Liking the new version.

My journey started with Samsung at Christmas 2014 with the Note 4.
The Note 4 was a departure from the plastic phones that were preceding this one. My daughter also had one. I did not have it long, about 4 months, when I felt it was beyond me. It was a wonderful phone, but sometimes lagged with the Old Touchwiz.
Then I had the Samsung Galaxy s6, mainly because MBKHD publicised it on his Youtube channel.
The s6 was a great phone, launched on Android 5.01. It was a rapid phone, and as the months went on, with the updates got so much better. The problem with the phone after having it for 2 years was one day browsing it closed down and would not load up again. I took it to the phone operator, they could not fix it. They alleged I had rooted it, so I had to have a new phone.
I knew about the s7 when I saw its unveiling live on my s6, so I was waiting for an upgrade, it came unexpectedly. It was a great phone. Fast and the updates made it so much better. Launched on Android 5.1, and I subscribed to the Nougat beta Christmas 2015. It was amazing beta update, loved it. I got a great deal from my operator at the time. It was fast and it was a great phone, recommend it even today.
In 2018 I got my new S8, but I broke it, the screen, on my car door, and got a new one paid by insurance. The s8 Plus.
My only complaint is that the Amoled screen burned in. I got severe burn in, and the phone was fast but the burn in had made it worthless.
In 2018 at the end I got the s9, which I had 2 years.
The s9 was an awesome phone, even upgraded it to Android 10 through Samsung's Beta Programme. The lockdown came in 2020, March and I was charging it 3 or 4 times a day, it was no longer holding its charge. So I got a great deal to upgrade. My phone today is the Note 10.
The experience is awesome, and I am so looking forward to the Beta Programme. I love Samsung, personal taste of mine.
