    Sometimes you may need to do some investigation of why and what that drains. Sometimes there is a easy fix. Sometimes harder. Sometimes you actually need a clean start to rule out upgrade problems (factory reset and clean install...)
    And ofcourse report it via the feedback tool.

    It's a beta after all.

    Not true. I downloaded some wallpapers from an icon pack, and wallpaper apps and canvas worked with them.

    I was facing the same problem. It has to do with the OnePlus Launcher version. Go to Settings -> Apps & Notifications -> OnePlus Launcher and select Uninstall Updates.
    Canvas should appear afterwards

    Very true @Swejuggalo also, I've noticed that right now, AOD really is a major battery drain. Not sure if OP can get it better, but if I have AOD on, I get really bad battery life. If I turn it off and go back to ambient display, I get great battery life.

    I have always avoided AOD on every phone I ever owned. First thing I turn off. Even if 1% on a day it's still a wasted 1% if you ask me.
    I don't really know how Oneplus do it. For example using 1Hz refresh rate or something or currently something less efficient...
    I'd recommend BetterBatteryStats to compare idle drain. And report via the feedback tool if you consider the drain to be abnormal due to AOD. Even stuff like using Insight or not may have a big effect on idle drain.

    You should always do a factory reset first, and if that don't help.. rollback

    PostFinance Mobile App (Switzerland) crashes permanently. The App is optimized for Android 11.

    It crashed in OP1 also.

    Deleting and reinstall doesn't help.

    1. Investigate drain. Look at battery stats. Maybe even use additional tools for extra stats like BetterBatteryStats. Allow the phone to finish a background optimize (via full charge plus X amount of hours connected to charger or running this command via adb shell "cmd package bg-dexopt-job"
    2. Report a issue via feedback tool if you can claim that the issue is caused by OnePlus. Report the issue to the app dev if the issue may lay in the app. Or both if you don't really know.
    3. Look into the problem and see if data wipe or cache wipe, or setting changes of the problematic components helps. Chances are it might fix the problem.
    4. Factory reset with a clean install. A factory reset without importing all settings and app data from Google or a full Oneplus Switch backup may solve an issue if you can't really pinpoint from where and what that causes it.
    5. If solved, or everything you done failed, add that info to bug rapport.
    6. Last resort. Rollback. You gonna loose data anyway.... So why skip step 4.

    Just like the way I see it. AOD is the single most useless feature for me.

    It seems that wifi 2.4 ghz slow down and bluetooth connection issues have been fixed! Chapeau oneplus! Black crush still there, but i am sure, it can be fixed by software (gamma).
