READ THE OP FIRST BEFORE POSTING!!

This thread is for discussing bugs, issues, work around, and suggestions for the beta for the US models. Please no discussion of the international models. There's already a thread for that, and I don't want to confuse bugs/fixes for the wrong model.

If you have the international model (N975F), please see @henklbr 's thread here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...neui2-t3987433

Stay on topic. This thread is to discuss issues with the beta, not how to get it. There's already a couple threads for that as well. The basic step is to sign up for the beta in the Members App, or download the OTA from firmware.science. For further assistance, please see @tlbland0426 's thread at:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...975u1-t4002783

When posting your issues, please state what software version you're on (current one is 2ZSKH), and if you did a dirty flash, restored data, or did a complete clean install.

I know this isn't an official channel to report to Samsung, but bugs discussed here can be forwarded to Samsung in the beta app.

Please read the OP and the entire thread before posting.

Been running the beta (ZSK3) for less than 24 hours. I did officially register, and started to download the OTA through device settings, but it requires WiFi. I was at a hotel and the WiFi there was achingly slow, so I went to firmware.science so I could just download the OTA with LTE, then manually flashed it through recovery.

I performed a clean install. Factory data reset, flash OTA, then another factory data reset. Then I set it up from scratch. I didn't restore anything.

Here is my experience so far:

Pros:


1. Dark Mode - I love the native system-wide dark mode.

2. Space below keyboard - I use gestures and GBoard, and I like how now even third party keyboards are pushed up a bit, and you have the keyboard switcher and close keyboard buttons.*

3. Charge Status Toggle - Ability to turn off the charge status. (Thank you Samsung!)

4. Fingerprint Icon Toggle - Ability to turn the fingerprint reader icon on or off.*

5. Improved Biometrics - Fingerprint reader seems to work MUCH better now. Even with the last few updates on Pie, my FP reader was almost worthless. Now it's nearly flawless.


Cons/bugs:

1. Brightness Slider - No longer able to display brightness control on top in the notification shade. I use the brightness slider a lot, and it's frustrating having to fully expand the notification shade when I want to adjust it.

2. Gestures - The new gestures aren't very intuitive. I prefer the gestures from Pie. I know I can still use those, but I'm really trying to get used to this style, since it's what Google will push everyone toward anyway. This system of gestures is Google fault not Samsung's.

3. Home screen Jank - I occasionally get issues with the home screen freezing. Seems to be when I'm having issues with the gestures, particularly getting Google Assistant to activate via swipe.

4. Syncing issues - There's several Samsung apps/services that will not sync. Samsung Pass, Samsung Internet. Samsung Contacts, and a few others. Under Samsung account settings, when trying to sync them, they say "syncing" then change to "Couldn't sync." This occurs in WiFi and cellular.

5. Disney+ - Not compatible from the Play Store. I was able to install it, log in, and watch movies with a work around, so I know it works. Not sure if this is Disney's problem, or Samsung's. I know it works on other devices running Android 10, so who knows.

6. Netflix - this could've been my issue. I was in the Netflix beta program, and Netflix installed, but kept telling me to update, then telling me it wasn't compatible. I had to leave the beta, and sideload an older version from apkmirror. Working fine now.

7. WiFi issues - It connects to WiFi just fine, but some apps wouldn't load or allow me to sign in while on WiFi. See below.

8.. VUDU - It would initially force close. I deleted and sideloaded an older version that would freeze on the load screen. Updated that version through the Play Store and it wouldn't force close, but would freeze. I was on WiFi and when I turned it off VUDU loaded. (WiFi was pulling 250 Mbps down, so it wasn't the issue).

9. Hulu - When I tried to log in, it kept saying couldn't reach server. Again, was on WiFi in a restaurant pulling 250 Mbps down. But once I shut off WiFi, it signed right in.

10. Full Immersive Mode - This option is still missing in Samsung Internet and most video apps. It works just fine in YouTube and Disney+. We should have the option of using full Immersive Mode at least in the internet browser. As far as movies, make the rounded corners on the black bar less rounded.

Download all 4 files from here:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-Q...1pYvP-zWZ663nG

Install the SAI.apk
After that has been installed open that app and then select Install APKs
Select the 3 other apk files that you downloaded then click Select (3) and it will install the working Disney+ app

You actually can put it back on top, you just need to set this.
Just press the 3 dots when pulling the dropdown menu, then select the quick layout panel


No issues with Disney+ and Netflix either

Thank you!!! Not sure why they hid that option.

So you were able to download and install Disney+ from the Play Store while on the beta?

One of the only real issues I'm having is with the new gestures, mainly the recent apps gesture. When using it straight from the home screen it works like 50/50 for me and sometimes causes OneUI Home to crash but using it when you have an app open it seems to work much better.

Edit: (2ZSK3 obviously). I got the OTA through the beta registration and had some issues because I had #hex installed so I did a factory reset. I did however restore everything from Samsung Cloud afterwards.

It still shows as incompatible in the Play Store for me. Go to the Play Store and look for Disney+. Below the unsintall/open buttons, tell me if you see a message in red lettering that the app is now incompatible with your device.

Yes, the recents gesture from home screen is very wonky. I had some home crashes too when I first installed and set everything up, and I actually wound up doing another factory reset to get rid of them.
