Hi guys just making this thread to keep everyone as up to date as possible on the ColorOS 13 and what to expect. I'm currently downloading the beta firmware that's been released to the Ambassador's possibly to more users outside the ambassador program so here's the current file size and change log. Any questions fire away.

After 24 hours or so later from installing the beta I have noticed a few slight issues nothing show stopping so far so here's slight run down of things I have found so far:



1. Google Wallet:

Due to this being Beta firmware you are given this error,

I have yet to test to see if contactless payment might actually still work despite the warning message but I do plan to test it anyway.


2. Brightness issue:

After installing the new Beta I noticed that when the device was booting up the screen was lovely and bright. However as soon as it gets passed the boot animation all of a sudden the screen got really dark to the point that even screenshots became dark as well note the warning image above. After some digging about in the settings menu I came across an option within the dark mode settings called "Reduce contrast in low-light conditions". After i disabled that option the screen brightness and screenshots returned to normal again.

3. The Power Menu:

With this new update the power menu has changed quite a lot when you press the power button or the power + volume up depending on your setup you will no longer see the the Emergency, Restart or Power off buttons at the top. What you will see now is a sliding option in the middle of your screen to Restart or Power off. However not sure if it related to my first point but i no longer have options for quick access to my contactless payment options. Hopefully once the official version gets released having quick access to my payment options will return

Can you check these things for me?

1. Does ColorOS 13 allow hiding lock screen pattern? It's not there in ColorOS 12 despite being a feature in stock Android since forever.

2. Go to App info of Google Drive, then Open by Default. Does it have the option to turn off 'Open supported links'? It's there in stock Android 12 but not ColorOS 12. An example is provided below.

3. When you use App drawer mode (App drawer seperate with Home screen) and long press a user-installed app icon, does it allow uninstalling, or just removing the shortcut? I can do this in OneUI and OxygenOS 10 but not in ColorOS 12.

4. In App Drawer, when pressing the three dot icon above an app, does it allow going to 'App Info' of that app? Again, I can do this in OneUI but not ColorOS 12.

(the top option is App info)

These little things have been bugging me since updating to 12, so really appreciate if you can confirm if they have fixed them in ColorOS 13 :)

I have a question about the new version. Did they change how notifications behave on the lockscreen? At the moment notifications dissapear from the lockscreen in these scenarios:
- after you unlock and lock your phone, notifications disappear
- after a while (say 5 to 30 minutes) notifications dissapear from the lockscreen after having unlocked the phone.

All oppo, realme and (since oxygen 12) oneplus phones have this behavior.

I want to know if all notifications stay on the lockscreen no matter how many times you unlock your phone or how many hours they have been sitting there.
