I would love to know everyone's opinion that is currently running Android 12 beta 5. I'm getting the best performance and battery life of just about any phone I've ever owned but this is also my first Pixel device. I also find the UI of Android 12 to be quite striking and a bold move in the right direction for Google. I will upload some screenshots of my benchmarks and device set up for those who are on Android 11 and curious about the beta's performance/aesthetic. Anyone else on this firmware please feel free to leave your thoughts/impressions/concerns in this thread.

agree, I like it as well. Although, I think the 5a could be just a little bit faster. Sometimes it's a little sluggish. But I am spoiled by S21Ultra and OnePlus8 Pro which I don't have anymore. The battery life is stellar. Sometimes I get through 2days before I have to start charging.
cheers

What happened to your OnePlus and S21 Ultra? Just curious.. I can relate though my previous phone was an LGV60 so I understand about the speed.. this is my first "Mid-range" device but I have to say aside from the speed/processing power of the V60, I think this Pixel 5a is superior in every other way. I'm definitely excited to see what kind of developmental support we'll be getting as more people get their hands on the device. If its already this good on stock android, I can't wait to see what this phone can do on a custom ROM.

I sold my OP 8Pro to buy the S21 Ultra. That was my downfall....
there is a long thread here that explains what happened to me with horrible Samsung Support story. Bottomline, screen had manufacturing problem and it took me 4 months to get my money back and it involved the consumer court.
I really like the 5a, don't get me wrong. It runs the latest Android, which I would not be able to do on the OP 8Pro or the S21 Ultra. The camera is wonderful. The sluggishness is mostly due to the fact that I got so used to >90Hz refresh rates.
cheers
