I think it has only become more consistent. And I don't think every app should look the same. Especially not the icons. It's hard to differentiate if everything has the same shape. Each app should have a design that best suits the purpose of the app.
Project treble should help with fragmentation some what
kjjdion122y@terraria99 the problem is that the fragmentation exists at the OS level. For example, in order to turn off vibrations you literally have to do it in every app. Same for peeking, and that's only if the developer has implemented that into their app.
One of the most disgusting things I've seen recently was that in order to silence hangouts vibrations, you had to do it for each individual conversation you had.
Android has a big problem with fragmentation. Some of their UI design decisions as of late are also similarly alarming. As for hardware...they couldn't get that nailed on their flagship either. *Cough* 4gb of ram *cough*.
I'm hoping someone comes in and tells them that putting OS-level settings in the hands of the developer is a bad idea, perhaps hire a UI manager that follows standards, and consider putting better hardware in a $1000 phone.
Too much apple, not enough beet.
