Ur having cellular data issues on pixel experience? Also pixel experience has all gapps built in already.
Honestly I couldn't yet describe or understand the problem properly, when I downloaded the ROM I was able to use internet everywhere then after one hour I start having probelms (like most of custom roms I used) now I can send some whatsapp messages, can hardly open google play and download an app, but when I can (download speed is fast), but can't browse google chrome, no internet in Apkpure. Hotspot connection for my laptop working 100% I tested many websites with it.

Very weird..

Other than that, it's very cool rom. I haven't noticed a battery drain - all of features I have tested works properly (haven't tested all of them but a few). I really like google tase in Android 12, and I may take pixel 6 over S22U if they made me choose. But I think I can't continue with this ROM. This is my daily device and can't left it with no internet for so long. I will just do some more tests and will switch to RayOS. Because I have the cellular data problems in pixel experience - LOS roms, but not in the modified OneUI roms. And I think I have rushed in a rom under Developement🙃

Honestly from the looks of it, either ur phone is having bad cell reception since ur getting H+ not even 4g or you need to go in settings and change to lte preferred. Try that by going into settings->network and internet->sims and setting prefered network type to LTE.

I changed it to 3g in the video, to test if it will work. Everytime I do a refresh or small change, chrome work for a little then stop. BTW, now everything is working well 100% for me, after I changed to another Access point in cellular data settings, not sure if this will affect network speed. Till now everything is working well. Thx for the ROM
Side notes - my installing for this ROM was clean (not dirty install). My network speed is around 30Mb/s, not the fastest and considerably slow, but definitely will allow me to access the internet at least.

The bluetooth audio does not work in calls, similar to the issue that was in Simon1511's LineageOS before it was updated to LineageOS 19.0.

Not sure if this is a known issue, but I wanted to mention it.

Also thank you for making the ROM, it's very smooth, definitely daily driver ready.

Hey thanks for the feedback and bug report. Did you dirty flash this rom or format data and cache before installing?

I came from the stock rom (One UI), when I lauched into TWRP I went to the "Wipe" section, then to "Advanced Wipe" and ticked everything (Dalvik/ART Cache, Data, Internal Storage, Cache).

After the wipe finished, I went to the "Install" section and added the Pixel Experience zip and the magisk zip files, then installed them.

After the installation I rebooted and started using the ROM as normal.

Greetings.
On the a72, both on lineage and on this firmware. The problem is in the gcam. On the stock firmware with the config worked all 4 cameras, but on this firmware only 2. The main one and the wide angle one.
On GSI solved in the settings phh treble include aux camera, or q vendor. I do not remember exactly. Does everything work well on your a52?

On A52 custom rom macro cam doesnt work even on phh gsi. Wide angle and main camera work.

    The alignment of the characters on the keypad is not correct (not perfectly centered). The letters should be perfectly centered.
    I'm not meaning offence, but I mean if you will focus on such a details for a custom ROMs, then I advice you to stick in the stock ROM. Custom ROMs are probable for way way more bugs than this, usually you have to dispense one big feature. I miss most of the things when I see the main things just working well. Anyway I may just return to stock because of the battery drain😄

    As Volte is not working in this rom then will JIO 4g sim work or not
    Jio does not work for calls. Everything else will work fine.

    Edited
    I think I was rushing to judge the ROM in battery, I think I may have to personalize it more and test it for more time. In real I settled for disabling AOD, (in normal use it should consume <1% per hour), but in this ROM I feel it consume like >2%. And settled for disabling the screen turning on while I pick the phone (Don't know the correct term, I use in arabic), because screen was turning on weirdly multiple times in the car. (Till now I have completed 3 days, which are just a little)
    Ok, I've amended the rom more, some optimizations, and turned off AOD, the rom started giving me a very good battery time. 32 hrs with no charging, 30% battery left, with obviously minimal usage + using battery saver in sleeping time. I turn off location / NFC when I finish my need of them. I think it's close to stock in battery draining.

    Supported variants!
    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.

    Installation instructions

    • Make sure your device's bootloader is unlocked.
    • Make sure to have the latest available version of OrangeFox orTWRP or Pixel Experience recovery installed.
    • If not done before, flash disabled VBMeta with Odin in AP slot (originally posted here).
    • Backup all your necessary partitions before flashing this in case something goes wrong.
    • Download the Pixel Experience build for your device from the link below. Gapps are included.
    • Flash the Pixel Experience zip.
    • Optionally, flash Magisk v24 or newer right after
    • Format data in TWRP or factory reset in Pixel Experience recovery as the very last thing, otherwise you may end up in a bootloop if using encryption or coming from stock ROM.
    • Wipe metadata and cache partitions (TWRP and OrangeFox only).
    • Reboot.

    Hey guys, Thanks to @Simon1511 I have another update with some great changes!
    In addition, I have finally stopped being lazy and built for the A72 as well.

    The biggest changes in this build are the following ones:
    1. He finally got audio with 2nd Sim card in calls to work!
    2. The fingerprint sensor on Galaxy A72 is now working ( However you may need to hold your finger a bit tight to the sensor sometimes.)
    3. Fingerprint dimming combined with Samsung's HBM!

    Downloads are on the main post, along with the instructions.

    Changelog:
    Code:
    -Switched to using Samsung's HBM implementation instead of lighting up the whole screen when touching the fingerprint sensor
    -Dim the screen if touching the fingerprint sensor
    -Wake the screen if touching the fingerprint sensor during screen off or AOD instead of killing doze
    -Fixed fingerprint sensor on A72 by dimming the screen (You may need to hold your finger a bit tight on the sensor)
    -Correctly reset brightness on fingerprint errors
    -Fixed the screen not turning on again if removing the phone from your ear during a phone call
    -Added custom audio impl to fix audio in calls with Sim 2
    -Disabled Dolby again (doesn't seem to work correctly for us)
    -Show correct fast-charging values
