Android 13 beta builds include several fixes and improvements for Pixel devices. But it looks like they won’t be of much use to Pixel 7 Pro users. The latest information suggests that Pixel 7 Pro device owners continue to face camera and screen issues with the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade.
Recently, a user reported about the camera fallback issues on their Pixel 7 Pro phone. According to his reports, the latest beta constantly causes lag for the camera system and leads to abnormal functions.
Also, after the beta install, the process between opening the lens and shooting has become quite inconvenient. The Pixel 7 Pro camera in particular is commendable. It highlights some of the excellent photo features that produce stunning results.
Here’s what the user says after downloading and using the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 update:
“With the latest beta, there is a several-second delay between opening the camera app and taking the first shot, and between pressing the shutter button and taking a shot. Making it almost useless, especially given the camera, is flagship.”
After the thread, a few more users stopped by and started discussing their camera and screen issues with the latest Android 13 Beta 3 update.
Android 13 Beta 3 screen issues
Yes, it’s not just the camera, it’s also the screen. In the meantime, we found another user addressing their Pixel 7 Pro’s screen issues. Accordingly, the problem occurs with the scroll gestures.
User reports that he is facing sticky scrolling. While tapping on a link, the screen will result in a long press action. On the other hand, the screen also disabled the keyboard as well as the browser.
Furthermore, the user reports that the keyboard often freezes for a few seconds while he is typing. Perhaps this situation will not take long to calm down. But such constant activities often irritate consumers.
Furthermore, the user also reported that the app switcher and notification panel were crashing. The output takes place 3-4 times a day and does not allow to swipe out of one application. The stressed user tried to help himself from the settings menu by changing and swapping some of the functions. But the problems remained constant.
It is worth mentioning that many users have given their suggestions on the respective screen and camera issues. For the camera stuff, a user asked to clear the cache and reinstall or stop the camera app.
For the screen issues, many users recommended to opt for the below-given steps on the Pixel 7 Pro smartphone:
- Go to the Settings menu
- Select the Display option
- Turn on the Smooth indicator
- Disable screen protection mode
- Restart the smartphone
Many consumers suggested turning off the phone or using it without a screen protector. This is because a screen protector often interferes with touch response and gestures.
However, the affected user confirmed that she tried all the steps and even used the phone without a screen protector for 3-4 days. But there is no change and the device continues to reflect such problems.
Recently we have seen many such issues and defects with Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade. However, we should not forget that this is a beta firmware. Therefore, it is quite obvious to spot problems with the particular system.
A notable point is that the latest Android 13 beta comes with many camera and screen fixes. Regardless, things took a turn in this update.
According to the input revelations, this could be the last build before the stable rollout. Therefore, we hope that the company will fix the respective horrific issues before rolling out the major Android 13 upgrade.
