Why do you think that?
They are reporting users running into this issue from other sites like reddit, 9 to 5 Google etc..
How many users? One? A dozen? A couple dozen? Is this problem self-inflicted? At no point does it say how many people are affected. Just someone complained on one site. It could also be the same people complaining on multiple sites. Ten people posting on ten sites does not necessarily mean 100 people. It could be the same ten people posting to ten different forums.

Also, you do realize that Android Central's (and every other media outlet, tech or otherwise) primary revenue stream is advertisements, right? Issues like this are exaggerated or amplified so people will click the link. The more articles like this that are published, the more money they make. There are more bloody ads in this article, than there is information.

These reports then get reported by another site (like 9 to 5 Google, or Android Central), which then gets regurgitated on another site (like SamMobile, XDA, and Android Police). If you were to look at other forums, you would find this same report almost word-for-word. This amplifies the actual issue to make it seem that thousands of people are having the same problem, when in reality, it is maybe just a few dozen.

That's not denying that people are having a problem. I'm saying that you should read these types of articles with a critical eye and take it with a very large grain of salt.

You bring up some interesting points but still someone going give the news regardless.

I've owned the 21,22,23 Ultras. Despite the hype, their “ultrasonic” fingerprint sensor has never demonstrated any superiority from the optical sensor on my OnePlus 12. And now, it's out with 6.1. More fun.

Sadly, just to generate click-bate revenue. By the way, its not just sites like AC or Android Police. One of our local news outlets here literally posted a news article that was only three sentences. Three very poorly written sentences at that.

Not that I want to go further on this but just curious if I were to Link an article from say 9 to 5 about s23 users having this issue would it be considered click bait?
Good question. It would depend on the quality of the content. For example, if it were reporting which devices are getting an update, or a company like OnePlus or Motorola announcing a new device. That implies that some research was done to vet the information.

That is different than what the article in this thread's article reported. This article provides very little information; and the quality of information is low. The title of the article is, at best misleading, at worse a complete exaggeration, bordering on BS. The title of the article implies you should not update to OneUI 6.1. There was no attempt to verify the accuracy nor the extent of the problem. Inexperienced users will see it, and think that it is a wide-spread problem, when in reality it is a very small group of people that actually have the problem.
