Ok and thanks for the help.
One question, when you talk about the request aprove, where you make the request to get access on the beta version? Can you please share ?
To request taking part in the beta program you go to Software updates/Settings/Trial. Only if there it shows something you can press on it and confirm that you want to take part in the beta.

Yeah I'm in the UK and I've used Nord VPN to connect to France, Germany, Netherlands etc and the offer to apply to a Trial/Beta just doesn't appear at all bloody typical 🙄

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately it also says this:

    If you roll your version back from Android 12 to Android 11, all user data will be erased. Make sure your data has been backed up before the rollback.

    So i guess I'll wait for the international beta version
    Last resort? No clue if it works, or if it resets everything too, but you could try this.

    "5. If you have a poor experience when using the ColorOS 12 system, you can follow the WeChat official account of the ColorOS Assistant, enter the menu bar-Official Information-OS12-Downgrade Tool, and download the downgrade package."

    do you have the CN version or the EU?
    South East Asian one.
    Just updated, looks and feels better compared to ColorOS 11.

    best brightest, and smoothest display I've seen ... Software, MIUI remains one of the most natural feeling, after last update there wa no issue with mi 11.
    I had issues with M11 ultra, call quality was bad. Camera quality was nowhere near as good as advertised. Especially when exporting to another device. Software a little hit and miss.
    Screen was the best but everything else was a little underwhelming.

    Do not understand the procedure of OPPO 🤨🙄
    The procedure is veryyyy simple - there are many global versions :)

    To give you more details and order of receiving updates:
    1. chinese version (gets updates quickly)
    2. global version with Oppo dialer/Oppo Messaging app/App Market + GAPPS
    3. global version with Google dialer and messaging app
    4. global but branded versions

    Ofc above list does not contain all "global" versions. There are differences between them like some additional apps depending on the region.

    Thats why everyone posting here screenshots gets update with different size in MB.

    Yours is 168 MB, mine was almost 300 MB 😂
