I am not feeling happy about Android 12 update. The interface is looking very ugly. Over all my handset performance is not going good. Ringtone is going cut while ringing. Unwanted system pop up are arriving while unlocking also pop up window flickring while watching videos. Very big size digital clock is fixed on lock screen which looking very shabby, voice control and screen brightness bar is too bigger almost 8mm thick. Overall the interface decency is gone. I think this is not looking like an upgradeed version it looking like degraded version.

    Hi, after update to android 12 from 11, I have problems to synchronize the contacts with my car multimedia. In Android 13 the problems remained the same. I do multimedia up-date software, but the problems with synchronization are there. With Android 11 or previews, I not have problems. Did you have some recommendation to do for problem solving?

        I "up"graded from 7 to 12. I expected the same basic OS + some improvements. Big surprise. It's hard to figure out how to do anything. I wanted to copy some text. Pretty easy on 7, almost impossible on 12. It just won't select anything. If you try, it just moves the text around. Remember those 3 little icons at the bottom? They made it pretty easy to navigate. They're gone. I never wanted to use Assistant, but it looks like the whole OS is Assistant. I tried to disable it, and got a warning that the OS might not work anymore. If there's a way to downgrade Android, I'd like to know how. 12 sucks big time.

            Worst, its slow down the drastically and if you charge in switch off mode it will switch on automatically
            Its worst version of Android and i think it's full of bugs

              So is no one going to mention the fact that the camera/mic indicator in Android 12 looks almost EXACTLY like the one in iOS 14?

              Don't get me wrong, it's a great feature, I'm really glad it's here, and it looking similar isn't necessarily a bad thing. It just infuriates me that Android bootlickers call literally everything on iOS that looks vaguely similar to something from Android "copied" and completely ignore the reverse. Android bootlickers are legitimately worse than Nintendo bootlickers from my experience, which is quite frankly amazing.

              Before you say anything, I just switched from Apple to the Galaxy S22 (I would've bought a midranger but I prefer smaller phones) BECAUSE I prefer Android, and also because I despise Apple's business practices. Apple tends to make decent enough products in my experience (their chips in particular), but I just tend to prefer other stuff.

                          how to move files to Android/Obb ? trick that worked in android 11 do not work in this version

                            I got Android 12 delivered to my Samsung s20 5G yesterday, can someone tell me how to switch the beeps off when I open my text messages, go to reply on social media etc. It didn't do it before, it's annoying.

                              I just realized both Android and Intel has similarity in their version/generation. 11th gen was a small fix over 10th gen, and 12th gen was a big change - much like Android! 🙆‍♂️

                                "Android 12 wants to convince you that it's big on privacy, and so it features a brand new Privacy dashboard in Settings."

                                - why you wrote that like this? 😅 Sarcastic 😆👌

                                    The clock is horrendous. I wish I had known about it (and it not being changeable!) before downgrading to 12.

                                      Google basically got nothing to offer in software development and its switching to compete in hardware
