I am seeing a lot of people who seem to be having a lot of problems with their phone. I would suggest that all of you who are having trouble try to clear your cache in recovery mode and also tap on repair apps. If you have trouble getting the phone into recovery mode, you can connect it to your PC and use adb to get it into recovery. I will include a screenshot so you can see what I mean. If you're going to go this route you do need to download adb tools and remember what folder you put it in or it will not work. You'll need to use the windows command prompt, and if your device is correctly connected, when you type adb devices, you'll see your device connected as you see mine is in the photo I provided. "I scratched out my device info to the left of device." After you see that you can type adb reboot recovery and the phone will shutdown and boot itself into recovery mode where you'll see the clear cache and repair apps like you see in the photo that I provided below.

Won't help. it's the actual beta is very buggy. maybe not for you, but it's glitchy for a lot of users including me.

Did you try it? Or are you just dismissing it? The reason mine doesn't seem to have many problems is because when I accepted the beta update right after it was installed I went into recovery mode and did a factory reset on my device and started fresh simply because that's the best way to do it despite some people saying it's not worth doing it that way or they don't want to lose their stuff which they're going to end up losing anyway if they have to go back to Android 13 before they accepted the beta update.

Agreed but I didn't even have to factory reset my phone. Just clearing cache partition and repairing apps is all I did. I also turned off animations and use Microsoft Launcher. No noticeable issues since about 10 hours of beta install after clearing cache partition.

The main point of beta is to identify bugs, and possible work-around as applicable. The more bugs that are reported the better. Yes, beta software is buggy if this is news to any testers.

Another thing.. People can easily create a backup of their stuff onto their PC and then update to the beta and factory reset and then start putting their stuff like pictures, apps, documents and other stuff back. I don't know why people think the beta program is for them when they don't want to lose anything or deal with bugs.

Only problem I'm having is the phone requiring me to hit the home button 90 times before it does it. I've even waited for it to go home on its own just tapping it once and doesn't do it. I like everything else about the update I don't get why all the complaints, it happens.

Is that with swipe gestures or the buttons? I had a problem with the swipe gestures so I switched back to the buttons for now.

You should try going into settings then apps and look for One UI Home force stop it and then go into it's storage and clear the cache.

This should be the first thing everyone should do after installing the beta. The beta team should really inform people on how to do this prior to installing as well as explain how to downgrade back to the previous update if they no longer wish to participate in the beta program. That being said, this beta has indeed been buggy so no amount of cache wiping is going to solve everyone's problem. It is safe to say that the people who are having issues this time around really do have issues and can only be fixed by the developers.
