A large number of Galaxy S22 series smartphone users are angry as Samsung is treating Galaxy A54 pleasingly for One UI 6 Beta. Recently, the company started the Android 14-based One UI 6 Beta Program for Galaxy A54 in South Korea, making it the first expansion model after the S23 series.
Last month, Samsung began the Android 14-based One UI 6 Beta Program for the Galaxy S23 series in three markets. Later last month, the Beta Program was expanded to three more markets; India, Poland, and the UK, followed by China in early September.
As it’s going to be a month since Samsung debuted Beta Program, Galaxy S22 users have high expectations of the One UI 6 arrival. Amid anticipations, the A54 5G is getting invited for the upcoming software’s trial, which is nothing other than a worse treatment to S22 flagship users.
Well, the South Korean tech giant could soon begin the One UI 6 Beta for the popular Galaxy lineups including the S22 series and foldables. The bulletin board has already been published in a few markets, but an official announcement is yet to be made.
Here’s what users say:
In conclusion, it wasn’t the flagship that came first, it was just the release time that came first… Until now, most of the reasons for using the Samsung flagship were to experience new features and UI first, but I think it’s time to switch to Apple haha. – Source
Are you kidding? I’m really angry that the S22 is treated worse than the A54. – Source
I agree. From the GOS incident to various issues, the exclusion of the battery light mode, etc., it felt like the S22 series was abandoned in many ways, but I don’t think it’s right to treat a flagship like this even if it is a priority for release… I’ve been a loyal customer of Samsung for 20 years, but I’ll definitely buy an iPhone next year. I’m going to hahaha – Source
The S22 series is now falling behind the entry-level models. Samsung is falling behind the two entry-level models and is becoming an abandoned model compared to the entry-level models. When promoting it, it is called a flagship model, but in reality, it is treated worse than the entry-level model. – Source
