OnPlus recently released the stable OxygenOS 12 update based on Android 12 for the OnePlus 9 series. The software release includes a number of new features, including reworked icons, adjustable dark mode, Work-Life Balance 2.0, new shelves, and more. However, the update seems to be half-baked and full of bugs and inconsistencies, with some users questioning whether it is really a stable update.
Users of the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro are reporting a wide range of issues after installing the OxygenOS 12 update, such as difficulty calling and receiving, faulty animations, broken autofill feature, slow Wi-Fi Speed, etc.
Worse still, the update lacks some custom features that have been an integral part of the OxygenOS experience. For example, you can’t change more icons individually, customize the status bar, disable Google feeds, turn off the battery icon, and so on. The call recording app and advanced reboot feature are also missing.
Here’s what OnePlus 9 users have to say about the new update:
It’s official, I absolutely hate this new ColorOS update by @oneplus. It’s half-assed, animations looking shitty, some apps with different DPI scaling, and reeks of chinese skin type of Android. I hate it and I can’t wait to ditch this for the Pixel 6.

It’s one of the worst stable updates one plus has ever rolled, so many bugs, the biggest among them is if you don’t have the phone app on the home screen before the update, you physically cannot find the app anywhere on the phone (Not even in the app manager) You have to always open it from the Play store. The Icon field in personalization crashes, you cannot open google feed most of the time, all the permissions are reset, and the recent menu is among the worst you can see on a phone. It’s glitchy, it’s not worth it. — Amankirti Walde (Am4nk)
I’m not happy at all. The recent task manager can close all apps, as the last app still remains on the screen after pressing the close all button in task manager. Whatsapp parallel isn’t able to log on to the web. No call recording app. Miss the old phone and contacts app. —mkhan8426
