The beta versions of Android 13 include several fixes and improvements for Pixel devices. But it seems they don’t benefit Pixel 7 Pro users much. The latest information indicates that owners of Pixel 7 Pro devices continue to experience camera and screen issues with the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade.
Recently, a user came forward regarding the camera fallback issues on his Pixel 7 Pro handset. According to his reports, the latest beta constantly slows down the camera system and results in abnormal functioning.
In addition, the process between opening the lens and taking pictures has become quite clunky after the beta installation. The Pixel 7 Pro camera in particular is worth praising. It highlights some of the excellent photography features that produce impressive results.
This is what the user says after downloading and using the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 update:
“In the latest beta, the delay between opening the camera app and taking the first shot, and between pressing the shutter button and taking a shot is a few seconds. Making it almost useless, especially considering the camera, is flagship.”
After the thread, even more users came along and started discussing their camera and screen issues with the latest Android 13 Beta 3 update.
Android 13 Beta 3 – Screen Issues
Yes, it is not only the camera, but also the screen. In the meantime, we have found another user dealing with the screen issues of his Pixel 7 Pro. Accordingly, the problem occurs with the scrolling gestures.
The user reports that he is facing sticky scrolling. As you tap on a link, the screen results in the long press action. On the other hand, the screen has also made the keyboard and browser unresponsive.
Furthermore, the user states that the keyboard often stops for a few seconds while typing. It may not be long before this situation is resolved. Yet such constant activities often irritate consumers.
In addition, the user also reported that the app switcher and notification panel crashed. The problem occurs 3-4 times a day and it is not possible to wipe from an application. Although the stressed user tried to get help from the Settings menu by slightly changing and swapping the functions. But the problems remained constant.
It is worth noting that many users gave their suggestions for the respective screen and camera issues. For the camera stuff, a user asked to try to clear the cache and reinstall or force quit the camera app.
For the screen issues, many users advised to opt for the below steps on the Pixel 7 Pro smartphone:
- Go to the Settings menu
- Select the option Display
- Turn on the smooth playback
- Turn off screen saver mode
- Restart the smartphone
Many consumers suggested turning off the phone or using it without a screen protector. It’s because a screen protector often interferes with touch response and gestures.
However, the affected user confirmed that she has tried all the steps and even used the phone for 3-4 days without a screen protector. But there is no change and the device continues to reflect such problems.
In recent times, we have seen many such issues and defects with the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade. However, we must not forget that it is beta firmware. Therefore, it is somewhat obvious to catch problems with the system in question.
One notable point is that the latest beta of Android 13 comes with a lot of camera and screen repairs. Anyway, things have turned around in this update.
According to the input reveals, this could be the last build before the stable rollout. So, we hope that the company will fix the respective terrible issues before the major Android 13 upgrade.
