Unfortunately, Google has not acknowledged any of these reported issues with Android 12 on Pixel devices yet officially. However, some product experts on the Google Support forums have recommended booting the device into the safe mode to check if there is an issue with the third-party apps or not. Unfortunately, this workaround didn’t help the affected users at all and the problem seems triggering from the Android 12 system itself.
Are there any other Pixels out there have issues since Android 12 was released, my 4a 5G is have a bunch

Meanwhile, the product support staff on the Google Support forum has mentioned submitting a feedback report from the device itself or via the Android Issue Tracker so that developers can track the issue closely. To do so: just go to device Settings > Tap on About phone > Tap on Send feedback about this device.
Android 12 is wrecking my Pixel 4a. Touch is all wonky and the animations are running slow. Also a weird thing where I can't touch the date to open my calendar anymore. Curious if others are having these issues.

Ahhhh…. Can’t send feedback. That screen is locked. My phone is pretty useless right now. It also drained in a few hours. I can usually go a day or so. This is TERRIBLE. I thought by waiting a week to update any glitches would be fixed.
I am not able to send feedback because by the time I get to the appropriate display, I have lost touch responsiveness and need to restart again.
This is exactly what is happening to my phone, I need answers please
yes, my issue exactly. I have lost touch responsiveness and can do nothing with the phone. brand new pixel 5a
