I will wait for the next 6 months to observe how iQOO/ Vivo optimizes their FuntouchOS over A12 and is it worth the update.
Thanks to all for the valuable feedback.

Also their tech team is working on releasing a new update which will resolve these issues. If I need to downgrade to A11 I need to visit their service centres where they will do it for free. In dilemma if I should downgrade or wait for the new update ...

I too did a great mistake on upgrading to android 12.0. I think iQOO deliberately releasing updates to break the phone's performance in order to forcefully purchase their new smartphone. This company should be liable for this.

It seems Google have done a huge revamp with their Android 12 which made this version slow by default. Such huge changes last time came with Android 5. Android 13 I believe will solve many of the inherent problems to Android 12 as Google will by then have a year of expereince with it.

The A12 update is available on my iQOO 3 but am still waiting for valuable insights from you guys. From what I can gather, there are next to no new features introduced with Monster UI, just the Android version is upgraded.
Please keep us updated, if anybody finds anything alarming with the A12 update.

Phone has slowed down a bit after A12 update. It is obviously visible when dragging down the notification bar, there is a 1-2 second delay in the animation. App opening speed has also been slower than before. Hopefully these are just minor bugs and get fixed soon.

Vks, 10 May 2022So far so good. Still have call recoding feature in dialer.... moreGood to know iQOO have NOT implemented the Google Dialer with Android 12 update. The green dot is a new feature for Android 12, related to privacy. If any app uses the camera system you will be alerted with a green dot.
Many are complaining about game triggers which are not working on A12. Is it so? Looking back now which one do you prefer more on iQOO3? A11 or A12?
Thanks in advance!!!

Now the wall chargers have also joined this revolution and we no more get one in the box.
Generally Chinese manufacturers use proprietary charging techniques for fast charging. They are not cross compatible and defaults to (5V, 2A) i.e 10 watts when used with phones from other brands.
Their are masterminds sitting in Apple thinking 24X7 how to increase profit. One way is to reduce hardware. Somebody has to do this, and it is Apple. Because Apple has the most loyal customers. Others like Samsung wait for Apple for the change and they apply the same business technique.
Next will be removal of charging cables, SIM ejector pin & instruction manual. Only the phone in a box will stay. However prices will go up as they go on removing accessories. Only a governing body of a country can mandate and force the manufacturer.

Many people on YouTube have complained that it does not support cheap earphone converters. Samsung converter is worth INR 650-700. Sound quality is nice. It has Dolby atmosphere for music and gaming and it sounds very good as compared to other companies Dolby atmos. It has also various audio codes which you can enable in developer mode.
Also one thing I have noticed, if you use any BBK family adapter then there is a charging issue. Either it will charge very slow or it won't charge by giving an alarm, "moisture detected in your phone". So, Samsung is playing the same game as Apple. If you are using a Samsung phone then, you have to use Samsung accessories also. Though I am using a Lenovo adapter and a boat cable. It works like charm.

Aloke Das, 16 Apr 2022Hi Rishi,
Glad to know that you are sticking with Androi... moreGlad to know Samsung S20 FE 5G is such a balanced flagship phone. I never had any doubts on their software part, OneUI is the best you can have on Android. And the SD865 truly shines over Exynos SoCs, a rare find on Indian grounds.
I had doubts regarding the display, as some Youtubers complained it is not of flagship quality and even half priced Chinese phones have better AMOLED displays. Samsung always cuts corners on some components to keep their profit margins high but as it seems the display is manageable and did not hinder your needs. Great.
As the phone does not come with USB-C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter, which adapter is the best fit?
