So I've clean flash a12 on my p5 and I've noticed a few annoying things;

. Selecting vibrate only shows no icon in status bar

. Music player gets stuck in notifications despite untoggling this function

. Battery seems to have taken a massive hit (granted it's only day 2, it may just be settling)

. Bluetooth audio seems to take longer to pair in my car

. WiFi toggle gets stuck on despite being deactivated

Is anyone else having any issues?

I'm otherwise loving the flow and detail of a12, just abit disappointed with these niggles.

Swipe to one side, tap the settings icon, turn off "Pin Media Player"
. Battery seems to have taken a massive hit (granted it's only day 2, it may just be settling)
My battery life seemed a little higher on the A12 beta 5, it went back to normal after a day, I can easily last 24+ hours with casual use
. Bluetooth audio seems to take longer to pair in my car
Haven't noticed if it's taking any longer, Bluetooth seems to work normally
. WiFi toggle gets stuck on despite being deactivated
Do you have WiFi scanning enabled? System will automatically turn it on to detect networks and to assist coarse location

Honestly I haven't noticed any issues specific to Android 12. I did notice my car's head unit stopped displaying track information with Android 11, but it came back with Android 12. I like the UI revamp, but I'm also in my mid 30s so I appreciate things that are designed to be a bit more ergonomic. Overall function is pretty much the same. My only frustration has been rooting the 12 final release, whereas the beta seemed simpler.

Think I found why I was having such battery drain....

Disabled the service 'Android system intelligence'. Do you.know what this is?

. Selecting vibrate only shows no icon in status bar - Haven't found an option to switch profiles yet.

. Music player gets stuck in notifications despite untoggling this function - Haven't noticed this issue.

. Battery seems to have taken a massive hit (granted it's only day 2, it may just be settling) - Isn't as advertised, for sure.

. Bluetooth audio seems to take longer to pair in my car - No noticeable difference for me.

. WiFi toggle gets stuck on despite being deactivated - This, I have noticed. Very annoying.



Overall, I feel that Android 12 is a downgrade, rather than an upgrade in so many areas. Hopefully the good folks at XDA will find fixes and customizations to offset this horrible mess of design and functionality.

I'm seriously considering going back to A11. If I wanted the customization level of an iPhone, I'd get an iPhone (no I wouldn't 😏)

The main bug i found is that Chromecast volume can't be controlled directly by volume button on the phone, we must absolutely pass by the Google home apps...
That's quite annoying...

And i read that this isn't even a bug, it's a "feature" wanted by Google... Legal issue...

If anyone can help :
