The haptics seem to be improved which is a little weird... Apparently you can't turn off virtual RAM which is very annoying because virtual RAM is bulspit.

EDIT: They broke SmartTags.

EDIT2(next day): they fixed smarttags!

One feature of this release that I personally find redundant, is RAM Plus...

Settings > Battery and device care > Memory > RAM Plus

I have 16GB of dedicated LPDDR5 RAM built-in which I very rarely use more than 10GB-12GB. However, there is no option to turn off the RAM Plus feature completely. No big deals as I have set it to 2GB.
