And Xiaomi launching new 300€ phones with android 12, like poco x5 pro...
„Android 14 will focus on optimizing background processing to ensure optimal resource consumption and improved battery life.“
Second year in a row? That‘s great!
BUT … dropping the Pixel 4a, the best Pixel in recent history, already, is a big WTF moment. Not only the competing iPhone SE 2020 but even the 2 years older iPhone 8 is still supported.

0odle-noodle, 09 Feb 2023you clearly didn't read the damn article. It prohibits the side loading of apps intended ... moreWell, GSMArena is also at fault. The article is misinformation. The way it's written implies that you can't sideload old apps without using a command shell. As you said, you can sideload apps on Android 14. However, if you want to sideload legacy apps (target lower than a specific version), you have to use a command shell. The specific version is still unknown, but apparently it won't be higher than Android 6. In other words, you can sideload all apps whose target Android version is 6 or higher, which should cover at least 95% of apps.

It prohibits the side loading of apps intended for devices running BELOW android 6. Almost no apps specifically target android versions that low. use your noggin hon.
