I am not entirely sure if they are "known bugs", I might report them when I feel more comfortable, but for now just in my own experience, there are three issues that stand out:
- in the dark, brightness often either goes down to the very minimum, or conversely if you set it to the middle it has a "runaway" where it progressively gets more and more bright until it's kind of blinding you; this usually stops if you set it manually a couple of times, and I assume you could also set the "one-off" option that makes auto-brightness stick to the setting it decides when you unlock the phone, until the screen goes off again;
- when using Night mode, the fingerprint sensor is less sensitive likely due to a reddish white being used for shining onto your finger instead of the expected full white; if I try to actually enroll fingerprints with Night mode on, it just refuses to accept them... I believe in the stock OS, Night mode is temporarily turned off when dealing with fingerprints; plus, as a small annoyance, when you try to give your fingerprints a name, the keyboard pops up but the fingerprint sensor icon doesn't go away, making it difficult to hit the keys G, H and Y;
- as I mentioned in other posts, auxiliary cameras can't be used without prop tweaks (although FreeDCam can seemingly use the wide-angle camera even without, but other cameras cause it to freeze), and the 48mp mode cannot be used, either, but it's possible that Android 12 will provide a working API for that, I'm being told.
I don't know about Widevine as I'm not interested in supporting DRM.
