The OnePlus 3 users who installed the previous version of OxygenOS (3.2.2) have complained that their devices started auto rebooting and the call quality was affected. The developers were able to fix these issues in the version OxygenOS 3.2.4 and the change-log has also mentioned “various fixes and carrier optimizations”, but other problems have appeared in short time.
The hotfix patch which weighs in at 26 MB has fixed the auto-restart bug and the problem with call quality, but after installing OxygenOS 3.2.4, users have reported that their devices still have the front-facing cameras auto-focus issue, Doze breaks notifications and Android Pay stopped working. In addition, some users have complained that they’re experiencing constant drops from LTE to 3G and even 2G. Luckily, there’s a way to fix this, and users can lock their phones to LTE by opening the dialer, typing in *#*#4636#*#*, then tapping Preferred network type in Phone information. By selecting LTE only, the OnePlus 3 will no longer experience drops from LTE.
Once the August security patch will be released for this smartphone, the Quadrooter vulnerabilities will be also fixed. These vulnerabilities affect devices powered by Qualcomm chips and if it’s exploited, attackers could gain access to important data stored on hacked phones.
This isn’t the first time when the OnePlus 3 has high-profile issues. Since its launch, the phone experienced problems with the RAM management and many users were frustrated because the display’s color was slightly off. The developers took care of these issues, but more have appeared and users are worried that this nightmare will never end, no matter how many updates will be brought for OxygenOS.
Users who still want to install OxygenOS 3.2.4 will download the full flashable ROM or OTA zips from the internet.
We remind you that the OnePlus 3 was released this June with a new metallic design, but its screen size and resolution remained the same (5.5-inch supporting 1080 x 1920 pixels). The phone is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 quad core (2×2.15 GHz Kryo & 2×1.6 GHz Kryo) processor backed by an Adreno 530 GPU and 6GB of RAM. OnePlus doesn’t provide a microSD card slot for expanding the internal memory, so users will have to settle for 64GB of storage. As for the cameras, the primary one supports 16MP and offers phase detection autofocus, OIS and LED flash, while the selfie camera is 8MP.
