A list of bugs and glitches that I found in One UI Watch 5 Beta 1

(Topic created: 06-14-2023 01:41 PM)

I've been using the first beta for a day now, and it has been pretty good so far. But there are some bugs that I noticed, and some other things I hope could be improved upon.

I am using Watch4

  • Adaptive brightness isn't as accurate as it was on One UI Watch 4.5
  • Some apps take a bit longer to load
  • Camera Controller app takes a really long time to connect to phone
  • The animation for exiting the brightness menu in the quick panel is buggy
  • The haptic feedback for scrolling through the apps menu via touch bezel is glitched (the vibration feels like it plays twice, that's the best way I can describe it)
  • The haptic feedback sometimes plays twice when you reach the end of a page when scrolling
  • Haptic feedback sometimes doesn't play at all when you scroll and reach the end of a page (usually in the apps menu)
  • Some pages don't scroll smoothly when using the touch bezel to scroll
  • Battery widget tile will sometimes not show the battery of some devices
  • The watch battery drains a bit faster than normal
  • Some UI lags and stutters
  • Lag when using the back gesture (swipe right)

There may be some more bugs, but these are the ones I found. For the first beta build, it's been pretty good so far. Here are some features I would like to see implemented in One UI Watch 5.

  • Smoother, faster, and more consistent UI, no random lags or stutters
  • Improved animations
  • Better haptic feedback
  • Better messaging: sometimes RCS doesn't work when using the Messages app via watch
  • More widgets/tiles for the phone and watch
  • Integrate Bixby Text Call on watch
  • Improved apps and features
  • Better optimization
  • Better battery life
