Thanks for the hard work on this rom!
Today I installed the new build for the A72 and I can confirm that the fingerprint scanner works better and faster than the stock rom!

I'm using only one sim card and can't confirm that slot 2 is working.

I have to report one bug I noticed, the screen doesn't turn off at all during a call and stays on all the time. Previously I used this rom in version v2 and then there was no such problem.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

I'm reporting another bug for the A72 rom version, the fingerprint sensor unlocks the screen when pressed with any finger, not just the memorized fingerprint. Another person tried it, it also unlocks the screen for unknown fingers.
Also, during the night, the screen's adaptive brightness setting continuously changes the brightness, increases the brightness to a certain level, then decreases it by two or three levels, then increases it again, and so on and on. Quite annoying, so at night I turn off the adaptive brightness of the screen and switch to manual setting.
I have to praise the battery life, which is significantly longer than on the factory rom.
I'm still looking for a GCam version for this rom that will give photos closest to the stock camera. The preinstalled camera that comes with this rom doesn't have many features, but its photos are much more natural than any GCam version I've tried so far.
Sorry for the long comments, but I really like the Pixelexpierince rom and would like it to work as well as possible, if not flawlessly.

Today I have installed pixel experience plus custom rom in my A72. Thanks the developer Ryzen5950XT for his hard work. I have found one bug so far: The light does not turn off even if the phone is held close to the ear during a call.

Thank you very much for you're hard work for updating this will check it out when I'm back from my vacation. On my a72 because i have an older build from you and battery drain was an usage issue. And also does Google pay seem to work on the a72 it's also fine if work around is needed as long as it works

Hello, love the ROM, ty for the build.
Very smooth so far.
My proximity sensor during calls doesn't work, and the speakers aren't aligned properly. When I turn on the speaker mode the sound is coming out of earpiece but when i turn of the speaker sound is coming out of the speaker and the person can't hear me.
Is there a way to fix this or should I wait for the new build?
Thanks :)

Sound thing is a known issue on whatsapp and discord calls, works totally fine on normal calls. Proximity sensor has been fixed. You can either join the telegram group and get the latest beta release from there or just wait till next month when august security patches come out for me to upload a final version here

And is there a date for the next build?

New version installed on A72.
Beautiful ROM and it gets better with every new version!
The proximity sensor does a great job of turning the screen off and on during a call. The automatic screen brightness also works well, it doesn't seem to constantly change.
The only downside I noticed is that you can't add a fingerprint to unlock the screen. The addition process starts, the screen reacts to the touch of the finger, the green circle under the finger lights up, but no fingerprint is recorded, the sensor does not vibrate even once to raise the finger further and lower the other part.
Great ROM!

    Hi there,

    I have a few glitches to report that I noticed in the latest 13 beta for A72.

    1. The screen brightness of the lock screen goes to max when I try to unlock the device and then it stays at the max. I have to manually change the brightness at this stage to restore it to what I set.

    2. The fingerprint popup window has scaling issues when any banking app or google authentication requires fingerprint to verify.

    I'll post more when I frequently face the issues.

    Thanks,

    Ahmed

    ANDROID 13 IS LIVE!
    You will have to clean flash (format data) and flash this update. Flashing without formatting data will result in some features being broken and no support will be provided to you, so please make sure to clean flash.

    Announcement!

    A52 4G and A72 are now officially supported by Pixel Experience!

    From now on new builds will be released on the Pixel Experience website.

    What are the differences between the official and unofficial versions?
    -The official ones support OTA-updates, meaning you can just update from the Settings app (Settings->System->Updater)

    How do I update to the official version?
    Just download the newest official builds from the Pixel Experience website and flash them using TWRP or Orangefox or Pixel Experience recovery. After that you should be able to update using the Updater in the Settings app.

    Does anyone experience more battery drain comparing with stock?
    I'm using experience plus, for the a72, the battery is lasting longer than in the factory rom.

    Congrats on making it official!

    I looked around the internet to get the difference b/w normal and "plus" version. Can anyone please tell me the difference b/w them?

    I'm looking for the most stable one, which I guess might be the normal version as it doesn't add extra features.
    Plus just has more customisation options. No stability related differences between the two.

    * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM

    */

    What is this?
    PixelExperience is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, icons, fonts, boot animation)

    Our mission is to offer the maximum possible stability and security, along with essential and useful features for the proper functioning of the device

    Based on Android 13​


    Supported devices!
    Both variations of A52 4G and A72 (A525F and A525M and A725F and A725M) are supported, but only A525F (6/128 variant) is well tested as I have this device. A72 also has lower support as I do not own one.
