S21 series received their Android 12 update last month, and it has been pretty stable. It's just the new foldable that's a problem. I think there's something different abt how the hardware, at least with the Flip 3. I had problems with Google Maps stability on it from day one. A later update fixed that, but had no such problem on my S21 Ultra. Same version os and app.

            The only feature I care about from One UI 4 is the ability to reply to texts on the Flip 3's cover display. They're short responses. That's about it because SamSprung can't do this.

              Well, Im glad about this news, so not only OnePlus is having issues deploying or the update itself for Android 12, so Samsung is having them too... guess this companies doesn't understand that users want an stable software (quality of service/product over speed of service)

              This is not only the company's fault, also some users are being too pushy with them asking for constant and fast updates, companies shouldn't feel pressure from this kind of consumers. I better wait until everything gets fixed, probably next month or so

                      This is the reason why we're in dire need for competition even in software, look at all the mess with manufacturers! Not only that, but it was also the case with Windows 11 which is a desktop OS!!

                      Let's hope HarmonyOS succeed and make manufacturers like Xiaomi and the rest adopt it (even if it's just a copy of android, like some people like to point) Huawei is known to make rock solid software which we experienced before with their stable EMUI.

                        Yeah this is true, I installed one UI 4 update on my s21 plus, and my phone screen went blank for 2 days, everything was working fine, speaker, camera, touch fingerprint, but the screen never came on, please you all be careful with the update, till it's much stable

                              This is what you get for rushing to post a comment...

                                all companies are suffering the same: UNMATURE RELEASES!!!!!!! Oneplus / Google / Samsung....so spending time discussing which OS skin is better is useless and sterile...

                                  OnePlus has copped a beating for its "stable" update on the 9/Pro, but Samsung's offering is just as bad. What I find amazing is how such significant bugs aren't picked up in testing.

                                    BigDisplay, 09 Dec 2021A serious beta i must admit, well done Samsung. To beta. It was a stable update but I'm not sure if you were being sarcastic calling it beta.
