Android 12L update leaves Surface Duo models ‘buggy’
You may not want to install Android 12L right now on your Microsoft Surface Duo
1 post on Reddit, by 4749, says the update has disabled the search bar on your Surface Duo. But this phone owner is kind of a ruse because he simply opens the Edge browser to do a search. He also says that restarting will allow him to use the search bar until it stops working again.
But the problem of the watch is nothing compared to the battery which drains very quickly. You can always tell the time by asking the Google Assistant or using the sundial. But if your battery runs out, you can only use the phone as a paperweight. Reddit user marrk87 He wrote, “Well, I’ve had a few small bugs since I updated on day one to 12L on my daily running Duo 2. However, today I encountered pretty much every bug reported when I really needed my phone.”
One Surface Duo user saw his battery drain 40% in an hour
“First there was massive battery drain dropping the battery up to 40% in an hour. Maybe it was service related, but I’m not sure. After that, the clock and battery meter in the taskbar didn’t update so my phone went down to a very low percentage out of battery without realizing it. Then my wifi and mobile data decided to stop working, so I couldn’t connect or send any messages. This required a restart. I am very disappointed, but the restart seems to have tamed the beast for now.”
Given the number of issues that surfaced on both the Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2 after installing Android 12L, if you haven’t downloaded and installed it yet on your dual-screen Microsoft phone, you might want to wait for the software giant to eradicate these bugs by pushing an update. We hope this update rolls out soon so that Surface Duo users can enjoy their phones once again.
