and the startup splash screen isn’t as good as the old one, and overall they made it less user-friendly than the Marshmallow software.

The Moto X Pure’s Android 6.0 M installation has 99% stock emojis, with a select few carried over from 5.0 L. But the 7.0N seems to be 100% Nougat emojis.

And for the thumbs up and various others, they now have real skin tones rather than pink-and-white. And for the people, they have actual men and women (customizable for race, of course) instead of yellow blobs.

The no good gesture X hands is now a woman instead of a yellow triangle.

I like the blobs better.

Thank goodness they didn’t change the orange cat emojis (but they did in Oreo, to an ugly gray cat)
