Hi Guys,

Creating this topic to discuss about your experience with OFFICIAL (NOT BETA) ColorOS 12.

Currently there is available:
- C.33 firmware for Global version
- C.36 firmware for CN version

Up till now I noticed few things:
- dual clock on Lock screen shows sometimes the same time value (need to unlock/lock screen to see the correct time)
- power button sometimes does not turn off the alarm clock (it puts the alarm instead in snooze mode)
- battery life is noticeably better
- phone seems snappier but it might be a result of factory reset just before upgrade and after upgrade.
- back button not working issue is fixed (at least did not occur on this version)
- android auto crashed once or displays some strangely resized icons (this has never happened on COS11)
- sometimes notifications disappear completely from notification drawer

In general it seems quite stable version - no major issues.

This post is about our experience related with COS12. Not about not receiving this update. You have dedicated thread "Firmware update thread" - please go there.

@maxellxl, in which region are you? In the UK not even the beta is available, from what I can see

I got the Chinese version, and live in Brazil, they only released the 12 when the official version came out and also a few days later, but today was the first time i got the update at the same day it was released. You can update Chinese to C38.
Now about the OS itself, the only "problem" i have is that the drawer isn't affected by changes to the layout, it only affects the home screen. But since now you can set other launchers as default, just install your own. And yeah the phone seems faster somehow.

So this is a newer version - the previous one for chineese was C36. Can u provide the changelog?


Yeah phone is faster IMHO.

I was using the beta (applying through VPN France) and this morning I upgraded to C.37. It doesn't say beta nowhere anymore and its probably the stable official version for global European models.

@Dark Dragon which Server in VPN France App we're you using? Tried with my european model, but no luck so far. Thanks!
So far I think the stable version is only aviable for people who took part in the beta. This is also my case. I got an upgrade from beta to stable today using the french vpn I used in November to apply for the beta. I think right now they are not offering the beta anymore. I read also from people who's beta didn't get approved for more than 10 days and will have to wait until the stable is aviable to everyone
