Howdy y'all, I hope you're all doing well.

 

If you're reading this, I think it's safe to say that your pretty darn excited for One UI 3 w/ Android 11! I'm so excited that we get to share the latest and greatest experience Samsung has to offer, together. With the One UI/Android 11 beta coming around the corner, I want to hear what excites you the most from One UI 3 and what you'd like to see. What features would you like added?

 

The contents of this post serve as and provide valuable information for users looking to participate in the beta. This post will be frequently updated as new information emerges.

Beta Information

Some things to keep in mind before signing up and installing the beta:

  • The main goal and purpose of the public beta is to gather feedback from users. When unexpected errors occur, please submit feedback via the One UI Beta app.
  • The beta firmware is exactly what it is, beta. This means that there may be some unexpected bugs and possibly not so good battery life.
  • Some apps might not function properly (if you rely on using banking apps, it might be wise to wait for the official update.)
  • Data loss may occur. It is recommended to backup your data. Samsung offers SmartSwitch on both Android and on PC/Mac. I'd highly recommend making a backup of your data before you install the beta.

Who's eligible for the One UI Beta?

  • Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra users on Sprint & T-Mobile
  • Unlocked users (U1 devices purchased directly from Samsung; Any carrier is supported on unlocked firmware.)

  • ZTJA (Public Beta 1.5)

  • ZTI7 (Developer Pre-Beta 1)

How do I un-register and leave the beta?

Sometimes beta software isn't for everyone and that's okay. It's quite easy to leave the beta and return to the official software version for your device.

To unregister from the beta, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Samsung Members app
  2. Press the Settings button located on the top right side of the screen
  3. Press the "One UI Beta Program status" button
  4. Press WITHDRAW at the bottom of the screen
  5. Follow the steps below to return to stock firmware.

 

To return to official stock firmware, follow these steps: (This will factory reset your device)

  1. Download and install Samsung SmartSwitch for PC or Mac (https://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/app/smart-switch/)
  2. Open SmartSwitch on your PC or Mac
  3. Using the charging cable that came with your Galaxy device, plug your device in to your PC/Mac
  4. Under your device details, you should see a downgrade button and a message that says "You can go back to a previous version of software." Click downgrade and follow the prompts.SmartSwitch software downgrade optionSmartSwitch software downgrade option

Excited?? Nonsense!

Have decided to finally switch to Apple - after 13 years of being loyal to android.

Apps routinely crash - without warning. Google docs takes so long to load, that i fell asleep while "sheets" (google's lame attempt at making an excel/numbers competitor) loaded my EXISTING SHEET made BEFORE the dumb android update!

YouTube (supposedly google's own app) has started glitching on bluetooth with my car. I'll probably go deaf with the static and interference if i continue to use it. Worked like a peach before the update, btw (incase you really wanted to know) Even Samsung music connected via bluetooth audio to my car is trying to ape Youtube's connection.

Guess its finally time. Thank God i didnt buy the S20+...

I'm also disappointed with android 11,  android 10 is much much ,better. why samsung removed Video Call feature in contact. The main difference   from other phones of samsung was video call. now this phone became rubbish. Why I should now by samsung. Xiomi parameters and working much much better than samsung. Company just made own product rubbish. Samsung works slow than Xiomi. I bought samsung due to video call. Personally I am going to sell it and buy Xiomi. Why and how carrier offers video call at android 10 not at android11. I n our country this service is working currently On android  10. How I can delete android 11 and bring back 10.  ANDROID 11 RUBISH RETURN BACK ANDROID 11. Android 11 made me absolutely  angry.
