Wow, it's FUUGLY! I switched to OP from Samsung years ago because of the OxygenOS, which at the time was better looking, much faster system-wise and update-wise, and had less bloatware. But now, the OxygenOS has become a complete sh*tfest. Well.. maybe it's my cue to jump ship onto iOS.
RIP OxygenOS

Now, we have a UI much worse than MIUI thanks to Oppo.

Looks way better than that horrible One UI with all it's useless Samsung apps.

That 'beautiful' UI you are praising is not that good... had my fair share of disappointments with Samsung so I don't think I will return to this brand anytime soon.

Unfortunately it seems we might have to move to Pixel phones... Glad I bought a OnePlus before the switch to colorOS, but it's sad what's happening.

Brilliant review GSMarena you didn't mince any words. I hope Youtubers who are Oneplus fanboys like MKBHD and Dave2d will also tell the truth about current Oneplus instead of sucking up to them like always.

Remember this, the only reason people don't buy samsung because it's expensive, not because it's bad. Just that. Put any china brand (with same specs) the same price as samsung, and you would find people only buy samsung with it's beautiful One UI.

Nothing new

My OnePlus 8T will be my last OnePlus phone. I will Instead of updating Oxygen OS 12 with cheap and ugly themes, I would have stayed at Oxygen OS 11 🙂 on my 8T.

one word to best describe oxygen os 12, messy.

Just bought a OnePlus 9 Pro because of OxygenOS, I guess it's going to stay on O²OS 11.2.10.10 for a few years. Seems like clean, intuitive, bloat-free enjoyers will all have to go to Google soon.

Did not receive the oxygen 12 by Ota in europe on OnePlus 9 ...maybe they fix the issues

not so much as changed looks like colour os 11 = oxygen os 12

It is very beautiful. I wish the Samsung UI also had square corners and lots of details. For the first time, I think it's better and more professional than the Oneui.
OneUI has a very good user interface but it looks childish! OxygenOS 12 is professional.
