For getting the Digital Wellbeing feature you may need to sign up for the Digital Wellbeing Beta app and also install the APK.
While general performance wise Android 9 Pie is good as a daily driver it needs multitasking improvements when compared to stable Oreo. There may be more bugs here and there but overall it is live-able.
Battery life has improved and both screen-on and standby times are impressive.
