    Hello,

    I just updated my OnePlus 9 Pro thinking it's a regular update with added features. Big mistake. No where did it mention that it's a complete upgrade to Android 12, which in theory I wouldn't mind. But what has happened to the user interface?

    The reason I own a OnePlus was for the near stock Android experience, and now this feels cheap, slow and unprofessional. Fonts look too bold, out of place, icons are a mess, the system is slow. Constant "ask for permission" dialogues. And what happened the camera app?!

    Why is this not communicated on the update screen?

    How can I downgrade?

    Thanks

    Well, yes when you received the C44 it isn’t specifically mentioned indeed, you have to read the messages on the forums first to know. If you want to roll back here’s a link, however as OOS 12 is right now, it won’t change in the future, so you might want to get used to it if you want to keep receiving security updates.

    Yeah...but for how long do you think you'll stay on an older build ? Forever ?

    I'm honestly not sure but after this update it doesn't feel like my phone anymore. :/
