Samsung Galaxy S22 family gets One UI 5 Beta 4 update with plenty of fixes
Samsung is pushing ahead with its public beta test for the next version of its Android skin. One UI 5 Beta 4 is now rolling out as an over-the-air update to members of the Galaxy S22 family in the US who are enrolled in the beta program.
Labeled as build ZVJ2, this is a 1.5GB download and brings the October 2022 security patch level with it along with lots of bug fixes. That said, there are still known issues such as a black screen appearing on the screen when using DeX and the phone’s screen is locked, a force close that occurs when selecting a filter from the lock screen menu while setting wallpaper- multipack, and also get one Cannot open the file message when you receive something via QuickShare and try to open it from the pop-up window.
Multi-user functionality was added in the first One UI 5 beta, and unfortunately removed in the fourth beta. It is unclear if this will remain gone or if Samsung plans to add it back in a later build.
The fixes have to do with crashes entering app folders, wallpaper changes, using the S Pen Air Command, Object Eraser not working, vibration not working for the home gesture, and frame breaking issues when going from a widget to the home screen. Additionally, an issue that caused the phone to beep and vibrate continuously was thankfully fixed, as was an issue that automatically used sleep mode, and adding and removing favorites in Gallery should be smoother.
This update will most likely come to the other countries where the One UI 5 beta program is available within the next few hours – or days at most.
