I'm getting really tired of app updates and installs taking 2+ minutes each on my Pixel XL, so I'm trying to figure out why it's happening.

Here's a 10MB app, taking a full 2+ minutes to install. I tested with apps as low as 600KB - they download instantly, but the Installing stage takes forever.

One suspicion I have is that it could be related to that dogfood build Google pushed to Pixel owners a week ago http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/04/18/google-accidentally-pushed-dogfood-test-build-may-2017-security-update-pixel-xl/.

Here's a logcat while installing an Wordpress app update (org.wordpress.android). I don't see anything particularly obvious that would explain the slowness, but you can see the timestamps:
13:46:21 start installing
13:47:37 installation finished

Not quite 2 minutes this time, but still way longer than it should have taken.

Are you seeing this behavior? Are you on this dogfood Pixel build? Any ideas?

So I'm using Twitter for Android beta (6.45.0-beta.599). Had it open for 5 minutes while observing logcat.

In these 5 minutes, Twitter generated 1GB of log data. It's the same error repeating over and over (over 534K times in those 5 minutes), which is a rate of ~1500-2000 errors per second.

I can't even begin to quantify the effect this may have on battery life, among other things.

WTF, Twitter? I mean, I know it's a beta, but still.
