Have got the notification for updating to Android 12 Oct 5 Patch. Will do a update after seeing how it performs. I have seen many pixel owners complaining about App freezing and animations issues. Will wait until its more stable after MR release w/ Pixel feature drops like I did with Android 11.

Unresponsive touch and missed notifications are the ones keeping me from upgrading to Nov 2021 Android 12.
