OK, so I have now concluded that there is a serious bug with BUK8 update (still no BUKG update avail for my device). I have a S21U d/S and noticed that many times after the update I experience some sudden call drops;right after the call drop I lose reception in both sims, like its re-engaging after airplane mode off, then I get the Vodafone welcome message from one sim and then it works again.

This is frustrating to say the least!

Anyone else having this problem?

Guys, which Samsung Gallery version do you have? On BUK8 update, I have 13.0.00.40, and when opened in the store it says "incompatible with device"?
Also, when creating a reel, the menus are all messed up.. anyone with the same issue?

Anyone that's wanting POWER SAVE MODE and 120HZ needs this app 🤩 it's amazing. You can also change the refresh rate. I can confirm all is working perfectly.
Thanks @adamlee2012 . Tried the app. Works as described. Have to see if there are actually any practical battery gains.

How long have you had this? Noticed any improvement with battery?
 
Noticed a new touch issue on BUKG.

Occasionally there's a freezing issue where I can't open apps or type on a keyboard but swiping home, bringing down the notification shade, and interacting on the lock screen works. It's when I'm inside an app or on the home screen that I can't seem to interact with anything. Force stopping One UI home doesn't fix the problem, but restarting the phone does

Do you experience overheating on Android 12? My battery in daily usage (Chrome, Instagram, etc.) is about 39C and CPU is 41C. I run Geekbench and results are below average score for S21 Ultra. 839/2666.
Do you think i should do a factory reset or wait for December update?

Just got the BUKG update in Greece, hope the signal dropping bug is fixed on this version.

Comrades, can someone help me with:
  1. Is Android Auto working after A12 BUKG update? My car can't connect to the device nor can the device detect the car. It was working very well earlier
  2. Does anyone have the adb codes to delete Dex from the software?

I've had this on BUKG also. Just happened a few minutes before replying.

1. My AA is working great. Sure I have the occasional connection issues where I just need reinsert the cable - but that's just AA. Can't blame google completely - Car Manufacturer + Samsung are to blame too. And the cable..
2. No Idea. I see 3 dex app packages on my phone - a total of 7.5 MB. Not taking up space, so doesn't bother me. Dex can be handy at times. Just disable dex?
