    4:23 that already exist in at least android 10.
    Open dev settings.
    Click on "Quick settings developer tiles.".
    Enable "Sensors off"
    Now you have "Sensors off" in the quick settings if not add it with the normal quick settings settings.

    I hope the going back gesture from android 10 and 11 is taken changed. Really hate the side swipe back gesture. It always comes in the way while cropping a pic and swiping side ways on apps. Swipe on app and it goes back to last page, try to crop from side and it goes to last page and this is very annoying. The previous swipe up on right and left from the bottom was a lot convenient.

    Android's 12 privacy features aren't as solid and good as Apple's ios 14.5 and ios 15 "Ask app not to track" feature. Android 12 is just providing the illusion of "privacy" not true privacy. I'm switching to the iPhone 13 Pro Max this year... most likely I won't ever come back to Android because their lack of true privacy in this 21st century's digital age.

    Being honest here, I bought Pixel 5 and I did not like the the phone nor android 11. I found OnePlus did a better job handling android.
    But Android 12 on Pixel 5.... Oh lord it completely revitalizes the phone. It such a better experience. I can't go back to a phone that runs Android 11.

    So disappointed with my pixel and my previous Google phones. Among other things, I'm supposed to be first in line for the new OS but I am just now getting Android 11 when I should soonish be getting Android 12.
    My pixel 4A is the fourth Google phone that I've had and every one of them disappointed me with unfulfilled promises.

    I hate that "the biggest change to Android ever" boils down to different colors, button shapes and sizes and privacy settings. Are we so conditioned that this is considered something revolutionary to be excited about? Wake me when the hologram interfaces are here.

    So those of us with samsung phones have nothing to look forward to since all this was added in one ui last year 🤦‍♂️. Minus the improved performance of course. Hopefully they add a battery saver like ios has. Plug in overnight and it won't charge to 100% until you are about to wake up.

    As a therapist I like the idea of being able to kill mic and video across the board when having session... Kinda wonder how far that will extend though. I mean Edward Snowden talked about that as long as a battery is in your phone the mic and camera can be turned on even if the phone is off...I imagine that will still be possible even if you did that...
