    Only got 12 on Pixel 3 so far but it's my burner so I don't know if it's impacted. Feels fine.

    Many are bitching about this and Google is looking into it but given this has been raised since the beta, I don't think Google cares as I think it is highly variable based on apps you have.

    As usual the right answer is reset and start from scratch if you are not willing to wait.

    Had Android 12 on my Pixel 5 from the beta and have it on my Pixel 6. No problems with battery drain for me.

    Have you checked the battery meter to see which apps are draining your phone?

    Mine seems fine.

    Just recently updated in the last couple days, battery drain is definitely noticeable prior to update. I'll keep playing around before starting from scratch.

    Using a pixel 5.

    Exact same scenario here. Pixel 5 has been on 12, and 6 showed up on Monday evening. No issues with either. Give it a few days, it may be rechecking/reoptimizing stuff.

    Was going to say, it's pretty good at optimizing. Just be patient and hopefully a few days it settles.

    Ha! I was just thinking about ordering a skin last night too but didn't for the same reason. Let me know which phone and finish you want and I'll place the order.

    Whatever marketing team wrote the narrative/product blurbs on that website should be shot in the face(s).

    Update on battery issue.

    Didn't try and change any more settings etc, phone pretty well back to normal battery life after a week or so after the OS update.

    Anyone find a work around for the frustrating inability to cast/screen share from pixel phone to smart tv?

    I don't want to buy a Chromecast, looking for an app that does this well.

    Or can I install something on my Fire Stick that will receive cast from pixel?

    Maybe Air Droid Cast.
    I use air droid for connecting to my Mac for file backups and works well.

    I Only "cast" with YouTube which basically just controls the tv YouTube via the phone app.

    My Pixel 3 on Android 12 can cast to:

    - Nvidia Shield TV.
    - Sony X900H
    - All Google based Smart Speakers with/without screen
    - My shitty $10 Android box running atvXperience Rom.

    And it won't cast to:
    - Ancient Samsung Smart TV



    Pixel will not do Miracast which is the only protocol Firestick supports.

    So it seems your way out it either rooting the Pixel or get a Chromecast device.

    Pixel 2 question.
    Can I enable VoLTE? It's greyed out but have read it can be provisioned to turn on.

    Freedom Mobile has recently dropped the 3G signal strength and I'm having calls distort.
    Seems like the LTE signal is great until it swaps to a 3G call.
    Advice?
