Let me tell you
1 - YouTube VR is not supported in Android 10 (ONEUI 2.0) even in the official build. But it was working fine on Pie.
2- try to switch between recent apps by swiping up and slide. they flicker. I have attached a clip. Check.
3- Camera quality is drastically reduced. Auto focus is not working properly.
4- Stereo Speaker Sound really bad
5- sometimes phone freeze.
6- really bad battery backup.
7- Pip mode is not working. When you interact with the other apps the video playing in the pip mode stop for a second.
8- android 10 gestures are not working with custom Launcher. But Google has fixed this issue in stable android 10.
9 - 5-6 second delay in incoming calls.
10- ram management is not good as it was in pie.
11- even in the android 10 ( Oneui 2.0) it still doesn't show Bluetooth battery level in the notification bar.
12 - Fingerprint unlock is very slow. Face unlock doesn't work properly and iris scanner is worst.
13- abnormal charging speed.

I think you should do a reset, I just updated mine via adb, and the performance is flawless, I thought the last beta was great but the DSLB feels more polished and more of a proper daily driver. Anyway, just wanted to share my experience.

Did you FULL RESET your device?

iPhone or OnePlus: O yeahhh -> those are "much" better... :eek:
While I also prefer android and was with android from the start (symbian before that) - what's wrong with the iphones and ios? We all know it's limitation (that are getting less and less with every ios version), but it also got a really strong sides too. Updates and longevity are defo among them + apple fix bugs. Even the super buggy ios 13 flop was fixed for basically 2 months (with decent state after 1 month) and currently ios 13.3 is great even on the iphone 6s (I got one second hand on top of iphone 11 pro max as main device currently, the iphone 6s is smoother and faster vs my exynos note 9 - great, right? ;) ).

As for the android 10, ran the beta and was not impressed. Should check the final... but the performance is not great, I even feel it's the contrary vs android 9. After that we can talk about the sound - to an abusive level bad vs android 9 sound. Worth mentioning is that android 9 released with bad sound too, took samsung 5 months to fix it in an update (with a lot of other stuff, there was quite a lot of bugs/unpolished stuff on the android 9 release and yes, I was a clean flash without any backup restores. Didn't just update from oreo and that's all. I literally wiped my phone and flashed clean stock android 9) and this was when the note 9 was kinda new and less than a year release. How and if they will fix it now when the device is older - who knows. The update that I was hoping will improve a lot under the hood, especially given how close oneUI 2.0 is to oneUI 1.0 - did nothing for our note 9, actually it regressed a lot of strong points as mentioned before.

Swiping up to launch recent menu will show some odd jerky animation.. That doesn't look very polish to me to be honest.

Has anyone had the night mode in the front camera ?, I remember that in Beta 3, there were some who kept it and others who were eliminated. Sorry for the previous message in Spanish.

2. Google app doesnt have dark mode since the beta release.
3. Night mode for the front having camera is still missing since the last beta update.

Are you sure about point 1. I am on original Android pie and my Galaxy store is in dark mode.
