New One UI is almost unnoticeable update. I'm sure it's packed with good stuff, but it seems very low key.

BUT: it drains battery about 60% faster than before. Got caught out yesterday without a charger, now have to carry block around just in case.

Battery drain during beta1 seemed "normal", but with beta2, it got worse.

But yea, others are experiencing it too

Same here. S21U. the battery is worse than beta1.That why we are hoping the Beta3. We all understand the developer are working on that, we should not complain. Be patient is harder when we see other countries already have the new update and enjoy some news.

Beta2 .. I felt it's like the careless software beta released... Given the random restarts and improper color theme application

With beta 1, I experienced battery drain, but with 2 it has improved. It's not like it was before 4.0 but it's getting better. I'm sure they are aware of the issue. It's affecting a lot of us.

People, understand that just like our bodies, smartphones are often unique and just because someone has a really bad issue, it doesn't mean everyone has them. During betas issues will ocurr, refrain from suggesting "this beta was "careless because I'm having xxxx". All betas can have issues like that, even stable versions could be riddle with bugs on very small segments of a given group. Adapting a software to work on devices with different features, specs, carrers, different regions, etc can be very complex. Issues will almost always occurr. Freezing, overheating, lagginess and slow devices are hallmarks of betas. When we use words like "careless" we imply that developers were lazy, cut corners or didn't do their jobs properly. This is often far from the truth. Remember that this forum becomes an echo chamber of complaints because that's what it's designed for. There may very well be 15 people with no major issues for every one that has an issue and you'll never notice because forums are design to attract post from people with issues, that's normal. With all this I'm urging to stop making dangerous assumptions that lead to flawed and unfair conclusions.
