    I'm anxiously awaiting the final release of Android 12. I'm debating whether or not to do a factory reset after the update. What's the consensus?

    Thanks!

    I've never done that and have had no issue. I wouldn't unless there were issues after the update. But again it can't hurt to do it anyway.

    I agree...if everything works fine I wouldn't bother.

    I have downloaded and installed to my Pixel 4a 5G! All is well for the most part but I have concluded that Google has no interest in fixing the Trusted Devices feature. Never works for me.

    I think it took about a half hour or maybe less. Her Pixel 4a was A11. Mine didn't take as long because the file size was smaller, probably because my Pixel 4a was on A12 Beta 5. Basically it will take as long as it takes. Patience grasshopper.

    Lol, thanks. I am patient. Just deciding whether to wait until the end of the day when I need the phone less.

    To those who received Android 12 on their 4a, how's the performance and battery life compared to 11?

    I see no difference in performance or battery life. It seems to be handling it just fine.

    Could be the OS needing to settle in. The new update doesn't show battery life/screen-on time since last charge, but only since 24 hours ago which is idiotic.

    I'm hoping the next monthly update improves endurance a bit.

    I’ve been on the beta for a while.
    I still enjoy how my 4a performs. Might update when 6a comes out but we’ll see.

    My 4a battery life has been fine on the A12 official release.

    Agree. That's why I'm not spending money on a new device yet.

    Plus you get another year of security updates and one more os update right? I'm not sure how the a series is supported, but isn't it the same as the other pixels? I always hang on to my pixels until after support stops....why get rid of one before one of it's best features has finished?

    Guaranteed OS and security updates until August 2023. So, technically, I could keep it for 2 more years.

    I use a Pixel 5 and just downloaded Android 12 on Friday night with no issues. Was a little worried for a minute there, but everything went well!
