Besides the general low quality of this piece of software, here are some specific pains:

1. SafetyNet test fails (no root) - WTF? Can't use any of my work applications because of that.
2. Status bar notification icons don't appear (except for Gmail, for some reason)
3. About device shows there's an update available but I can't update because I'm not the "owner" of the device (there is only 1 user configured, no multiple users) - screenshot attached.

Please share your experience and whether or not you're seeing the same issues (or more).

Thanks!

- Phone stuck in 60hz like 99% of the time.
- Keyboard doesn't have this convenient padding anymore. (On botttom to make typing easier.)
- [Launcher] Can't search apps with a single up swipe anymore, will have to find some hacky solution again. Usually I put a KISS launcher shortcut on other phones. But why ruin it when they had it ....
- [Launcher] Folders open on the middle of screen. Makes no sensse.
- [Launcher] The whole launcher experience is just way worse.
- Battery Management is a mess, now there are other options per app. The previous settings were reset.
- Rooting with Canary Magsik can soft brick. Managed to fix it but it took me a while and I consider myself a veteran.

Honestly, tons of great features are missing. I wish they would just give us a lean AOSP instead like the ASUS Android and call it a day. This feels like a botched, budget Android on a cheap Chinese phone.

That's not actually a bug, that's feature. Go to notification settings for particular app and you can set to show notification icon on status bar. Disabled by default for all apss (I think it should be enabled by default), except Gmail, Dialer and a few others.

Bug I found:
- font size issues. I want to set small fonts and dpi. But some apps, like default camera app, power menu, google feeds when swipe etc has still default large font, experience is terrible
- custom dpi set in developer settings will be reverted after reboot. If you set smaller dpi in phone settings, it will be applied a few seconds after boot, phone starts with default dpi
- AOD does not work, even if enabled, screen will turn off when inactive

I installed via built in ota from Oxygen 11 Global, I got update to ColorOS 12

Just got my first 1+ yesterday and was really impressed with the OOS 11 experience.
All day long. All the magic has gone after the update.
In addition to what was already said, the AOD is flickering terribly.
Perhaps it is caused by the pwm of low frequency.

I have a new problem. I listen to music while walking with my wireless headphones. The phone is in my pocket. Unknown reason causes the phone to crash.

I feel it's going to be complicated.... At least I have 5G working.

I'm not even going to upgrade A12, I deleted the 4gig update I got from Oxygen Updater. Oneplus just shoot them self in the foot and will not recover from this. I'll be suprise if they sell 1k Oneplus 10 phone next month.

Is your phone in 24-hour format? Mine looks normal in 12-hour format but like yours in 24-hour format. I don't use the stock clock app so I hadn't noticed.

Why would they remove the seconds on the clock feature. This update is horrible all around
They didn't. This is only when setting an alarm in the clock app.

I have issues with screen brightness not adjusting to low-light conditions. When setting my phone on my dash mount I have to manually adjust the screen brightness down or go blind, even in dark mode. Worked fine with Oxygen OS 11. Fairly disappointed with the overall quality of this update, and I usually love getting the shiny new OS version update.

    Agree about wiping. I did an update on my L2125 from 11 to 12 (v44) and found it was a touch buggy, but then did a full data wipe/reset and re-loaded all my apps and it's running very smoothly and, finally, I think is a keeper. Still annoyed that there's no way to get rid of the battery icon while keeping the battery percentage. Also, super hard to figure out the power management -- there are at least 3 different locales -- you can optimize in battery settings (but you no longer can sort between optimized and non-optimized, only search all the apps), you can lock through the "recents" screen (but appear to be limited to 5 apps) or you can go to the new Autostart category and select up to 20 apps not to kill. How these all interact with each other is anyone's guess!

    I should add that I was rooted with Magisk v.23 on 11 and used Magisk Alpha to update to 12. Initially, device shown as not certified in Google Play settings, but used the Hide list in Magistk, rebooted, then deleted all data in Google Play Store and Google Play Services and rebooted, and I was good to go.

    AOD issue and fix..
    Issue: AOD was set with a schedule when upgrading from 11 --> 12 but the screen would turn off after about 15 secs.

    Fix: Turned AOD off then locked phone. Turned AOD on all the time (no schedule) and locked phone, screen stayed on. Set AOD schedule.

    The worst thing it's the alarm clock. When it start playing the screen don't turn on and today I haven't the notification of the alarm in the status bar for turn it off. I had to unlock the phone, search clock app and turn off the toggle.

    This thing is crazy.
    Confirmed same issue in C40 and C44. I tried deleting all the previous alarms then adding a new one. No change.

    You can tap the alarm notification on the lockscreen and dismiss/snooze it from there.

    Bizarre that the alarm doesn't wake the screen, tho, still have to press the power button or double tap the screen to get there.
