Weekly Poll: What do you think of the Android 12 changes and improvements?
All I can say is that scrollable screenshots are a must! I’ve been using this feature on my Samsung S8 + since day one and it’s just great! Nice to see that it is finally reaching other Android phones as well.
Also, I’m excited about the new themes that change with the background image.
It’s just nothing compared to the iOS update and its changes. Great love and respect for Apple.
My phone is 3.5 years old and I will be using Android10 until I get a new one (probably 2023). Never have I changed a phone 4 years ago. So I could jump straight to Android13 🙂
Zpy, 4 hours agoI’m sticking with Android 9 because 10 has a number of limitations on behalf of … moreMy phone hangs on Android 9, but that’s fine at the moment. For my next phone in a year or two, I’ll make sure I get the latest version of Android
The main thing people complain about with a new OS update is bugs, so it is best to wait a while for the main bugs to sort out and then update for it. If you’re happy with what you’re using then stick with it, no need to download new updates and if you just can’t wait and endure the inevitable teething problems, update your phone. If your phone is a little older and not getting the latest version, it will still work just fine for the next 4-5 years. I used a Moto X 2014 on Android 6 Marshmallow until last year and it worked just fine. I just (reluctantly) changed my phone because my banking app is no longer supported and I need it to work, but I’m very happy with the Poco X3 NFC that I’ve replaced it with, and it doesn’t take long until I get used to a different skin and unlike a lot of people, I think MIUI is great to use. The X3 is on the list for Android 12 and I’ll download it at some point when it’s available for that device, but I definitely won’t be checking if it’s available every 5 minutes.
I’m sure I’ll get the Android 12 update, but I’m not sure if I like it or not.
Wait, where is the “I don’t care” answer?
The answer with “… as long as I get security updates” is also not a good one. I changed my phone because I couldn’t install newer games, because my Google Play couldn’t be updated, because my OS version was out of date because the phone was ~ 4 years old.
Afaik, what Android brings, can be added in different UIs. Since there’s no way you can change Android, you can (possibly) change the UI more easily. The poll should read: “Do I rate Android more than other interfaces”
I’m sticking with Android 9 because 10, in the name of security, introduced a number of restrictions that broke the functionality of apps I rely on.
I can’t understand what this poll is about.
It looks more like this, will I get an Android 12 update on my phone? If not, do I stick to my phone? Or buy a new cell phone? Will it be an iPhone?
Since everyone gets HRR screens, they should at least use this in AOS12. App developers will simply activate this HRR for their app if it is of course supported.

AX, 9 hours agoWhy is everything slowly like “bubbly”? From the first glance … moreSo you want rectangles with sharp edges with apps and notifications that look like blocks, sure man I hear you. Just get a phone with Minecraft OS and you’re good to go👍
Why is everything slowly like “bubbly”? At first glance, it’s a wannabe iOS. Please, please, don’t. I can’t stand all these curves and curvy that. Even the Android widgets are slowly starting to look like the current lame iOS widgets on the home screen. NOOOOOOOOO !!!!

James.D, 10 hours agoBoth were extremely difficult; and TouchWiz brought my Galaxy J2 Pro to its knees.Of course, they were able to tweak the skin, which they’ve been doing since TouchWiz on Android 6.
It worked fine on the devices I’ve tried it on (usually flagships).
Now I understand that they ran slowly on devices in the lower price range. And they run kind of slow with OneUI too, so it might be the hardware itself rather than the software.
GAMIRSFM, 14 hours agoI’ll stay with OneUI, I don’t like the flat design there either. The Sam E … moreBoth were extremely difficult; and TouchWiz brought my Galaxy J2 Pro to its knees.

Also: OxygenOS was loved by the community and preferred to ColorOS, so it was sad that OnePlus is now using ColorOS.

Fanboy of all brands, 20 hours agoI like that the one-handed usage gets better on Android, especially as the phone sizes … moreAs a QA worker, I can assure you that number one is literally impossible. NO SOFTWARE. in particular, the size of A WHOPPING OS can be error-free. ESPECIALLY when it has to work with so many platforms and configurations.
I would really hope for a REDUCTION of high and medium impact bugs. And I don’t mind having a couple of bugs that can be used as Easter eggs.
BUT ERROR-FREE SOFTWARE? Will not happen. Not because Google doesn’t. it’s because it’s impossible.
