super underwhelming, basically a new set of icons, some animations and some new menus, kinda ugly too.
Lots of new stuff running in background, baseband is still broken in europe.

Cast and some new graphics in the ambient display are the only barely significant stuff added.

Not much changed, some cosmetics, icons are not to my taste, menus a bit changed, expected more from the update. Printing is not finding my printer (fixed, my bad!), integrated document viewers are nice but dont support editing - instead they ask to download wps.

Is the baseband BUG in global version (TD-SCDMA auto set up in europe) solved ?

How much better is the battery?

What is this bug you speak of and how do I see if I am affected?

the phone's modem scan for signal in LTE/TD-SCDMA/UMTS.

TD-SCDMA is a kinda custom standard that no one use outside of china and when the phone is in a bad reception area often waste battery scanning for a signal that does not exist.

Go to phone and dial *#*#4636#*#* - Phone information, and found the value of drop down menu and check the setup for your sim .  Probably you will have LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA .

TD-SCDMA is not used in europe so very often if the signal is poor this causes battery drain (baseband bug) .
It's one year that the bug is knowed and they didn't solve yet.
Every restart you should change it to LTE/UMTS (Auto PRL) to have the 4G preferred and the switch on 3G or 2G when the signal is poor , If you are in USA you can use LTE/CDMA (auto PRL).

I found another annoying bug and it is present in the last stable too : on whatsapp / telegram if you want to send a vocal message you will find that the down corner touch doesn't work so you need to open the keybord and then send the vocal message or use the swipe and lock the mic icon for send it .
Do someone notice that ?

I would like to do a clean install but i prefer to wait for android 10

I don't seem to have any problems with whatapps.  I can hit the voice message button with no problems
