OnePlus And DJI Announce Back To School Bundles

Tyler Lee August 16, 2017

What does OnePlus and DJI have in common? Both of them have drones, and it looks like both companies are now teaming up to offer customers back to school bundles in which users can choose from a variety of bundles to suit their needs, whether they are more of someone interested in recording videos, or if they’re more interested in flying drones.

Starting with the first bundle, this will contain the DJI Osmo Mobile and a OnePlus 5 handset in which the total will cost $724, which saves customers $54. There will be another bundle that comes with the OnePlus Travel Backpack and the DJI Osmo Mobile which will retail for $343, saving customers $26 in the process.

For those who are after drones, not to worry as there are drone bundles as well. One of the bundles includes the OnePlus Travel Backpack and the DJI Mavic Pro that will cost $1,028 and saves the customer $40. There is also a less expensive bundle that contains the OnePlus Travel Backpack and the DJI Spark for a total of $538, saving customers $30.

Granted the savings aren’t exactly what you would call massive, but if you were planning on buying them anyway, or if you needed an excuse to buy them, then we guess if it saves you a couple of bucks, why not? More details can be found on the OnePlus website.

Android O Will Be Last Major Update For OnePlus 3, 3T

Tyler Lee August 11, 2017

At the rate phones are being released, it is safe to say that companies tend to stretch themselves too thin which is when when it comes to Android updates, many companies pick and choose which devices they want to focus on, and more often than not after a couple of years, you can kiss goodbye to said updates.

This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that OnePlus will be done with the OnePlus 3 and 3T after the Android O update. According to a post on the OnePlus forums, the company’s Head of Product Oliver Z revealed and confirmed that Android O will be the last major Android update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

However this doesn’t mean that OnePlus will be abandoning either handset. Both phones will still receive updates such as security patches from time to time, but don’t expect them to receive the next major Android update, which assuming Google keeps to their naming scheme should be Android P and should be released in 2018.

According to Oliver Z, “Android O is going to be the last Android version update we’ll release for OP3/3T. We’ll continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future, and offer support for individual application updates.” That being said, it is unclear when Android O will be officially released. We heard a rumor last week that suggested that it could be this week, but so far we haven’t seen anything.

Limited Edition OnePlus 5 Soft Gold Available Starting Today

Adnan Farooqui August 7, 2017


If you’ve been meaning to purchase the OnePlus 5 but didn’t want to buy it in the Midnight Black or Slate Gray color, perhaps the Soft Gold will entice you enough to open your wallet. The company today announced that the Limited Edition OnePlus 5 is available for purchase starting today. The company has decided to offer this color option with the OnePlus 5 after the popularity of the Soft Gold OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

The Limited Edition OnePlus 5 Soft Gold variant has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Unlike the other two color options, the Soft Gold edition has a white front instead of black.

The company says that it has further developed its sandblasting processor which has enabled the finish of the OnePlus 5 Soft Gold to be 30 percent finer than previous models.

Interested customers can purchase the handset starting at 12 pm Eastern today. It’s going to be sold via OnePlus.net for $479. The company has also confirmed that the Slate Gray OnePlus 5 will soon be available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $539.

OnePlus previously offered the higher-end model with additional RAM and storage in the Midnight Black color option only. This means that customers will now have more choice and no one ever disliked having more choice.

New OnePlus 5 Variant Teased

Adnan Farooqui August 2, 2017


It has only been a month or so since OnePlus started selling its new flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 5. The much-awaited flagship killer has been well received. OnePlus is no stranger to launching new variants of its flagship devices in order to keep the hype going. If a recent post on the company’s official Facebook page is to be believed, it may be about to launch a new OnePlus variant in the near future.

The OnePlus 5 has been well received in the market despite some of the hiccups it has had. The new flagship took flak for the jelly scrolling effect and a bug that prevented users from dialing emergency services. OnePlus has addressed those issues, though, so all is good now.

A few hours ago, the company posted on its official Facebook page an image that contains the outline of the OnePlus 5 handset with the caption “5omething New. Coming Soon.” The outline is accompanied by the two variants of the OnePlus 5 that are already available.

It’s unlikely that OnePlus is launching a “T” variant of the OnePlus 5 so soon. The OnePlus 5 already has the most recent hardware package and an update for the internals so soon doesn’t really make sense.

It’s most likely going to be a variant that adds a new color option to the lineup but this is just speculation right now. OnePlus should have the official details for us about this in a couple of days.

Next OnePlus 5 Update Will Improve Battery Life

Adnan Farooqui July 30, 2017


If a new report is to be believed, OnePlus is working on a major firmware update for the OnePlus 5, its 2017 flagship smartphone. OnePlus is reportedly working on OxygenOS 4.6, the next major update for the handset. It’s said that the update will significantly improve battery life for the OnePlus 5. Who doesn’t love more battery life?

French publication Frandroid reports, citing people familiar with the company’s update roadmap, that OnePlus is working on Oxygen OS 4.6 for the OnePlus 5. One of the biggest improvements that this update will bring is said to be the battery life.

OnePlus will reportedly make some major changes to the kernel which will allow it to extract more life from the battery. The kernel is that part of the operating system that oversees communication between the various components of the handset. Optimizing it will lead to more battery longevity and that’s something that customers will surely love.

OnePlus hasn’t really confirmed much about the next major update for its 2017 flagship smartphone at this point in time. The most recent update that the company sent out was to fix the 911 bug that affected quite a few users.

The report doesn’t mention when OnePlus is going to have Oxygen OS 4.6 ready and when it’s going to be released for all OnePlus 5 owners across the globe.

OnePlus Explains Reason Behind OnePlus 5 911 Bug

Tyler Lee July 25, 2017

You might have heard that a bug was recently discovered in the OnePlus 5 in which for some users, trying to call 911 would force the phone into a reboot. This is clearly a pretty big problem, but thankfully OnePlus was quick with their response and a hotfix was pushed out several days later.

For those who value transparency in a company, you’ll be pleased to learn that OnePlus has since come forward with an explanation of the problem (via XDA). According to a post on the OnePlus forums, “The source of this issue was related to a modem memory usage issue that triggered a reboot. This reboot was a random occurrence for some users on VoLTE network where OTDOA protocol was triggered when placing an emergency call.”

The company adds, “We have worked with our partners at Qualcomm to resolve this issue globally.” The problem appears to have been solved for the OnePlus 5, but as the post on XDA points out, there is a thread on Reddit which suggests that this problem could be more widespread than previously thought as there are reports from other users of different devices who are experiencing similar problems.

We’re not sure if the other OEMs involved have managed to address the problem, but hopefully they have or they are working on a fix as we speak.

OnePlus Reportedly Sending Push Notification Ads To Its Devices

Tyler Lee July 25, 2017

We understand that when a company, such as Google, offers its services and products for free, that it means that they need to make money through different means, and that means usually involves ads. But what if you paid full price for a particular product and they still showed you ads anyway, wouldn’t that be kind of irritating?

Unfortunately that’s what’s happening with OnePlus because in a post on Reddit, it seems that the company is pushing ads via notifications to its users. As you can see in the screenshot above courtesy of Bharath Kundapura on Twitter, it shows that OnePlus users are receiving ads for the OnePlus 5 on their existing OnePlus devices.

Now OnePlus is not the first company to introduce ads to its devices. As Android Police notes, in the past companies such as Samsung and HTC have been found equally guilty of such practices. That being said, the post on Reddit suggests that this seems to be found in the Open Beta 9 of the phone’s software, and given that the post was made a month ago, things could have changed since then.

Alternatively if nothing’s changed, the post on Reddit also provides users with instructions on what they can do to block these notifications from showing up on their devices, so check it out if you are receiving these ads as well and you want it to stop.

OnePlus 5 With 8GB RAM In Midnight Black Now Available Immediately

Adnan Farooqui July 24, 2017


OnePlus customers have often had to wait for a considerable amount of time before the order that they’ve placed is actually dispatched. The company started off 2017 by saying that it was going to work hard to eliminate this problem and ensure that its devices are available for immediate dispatch, meaning that the units would ship merely hours after customers placed the order. It has been working towards that goal and has finally confirmed that the OnePlus with 8GB RAM in Midnight Black is now available for immediate dispatch.

This is the second variant of the company’s existing flagship smartphone to become available for immediate dispatch. The other variant, one that has 6GB of RAM, has been available immediately for quite some time now.

The OnePlus 5 features a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display with a Snapdragon 835 processor under the hood. The device also features a 16 megapixel front camera and a dual camera system at the back with a 16 megapixel primary lens coupled with a 20 megapixel telephoto lens.

This particular variant features 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage. OnePlus is selling it for $539 which is far lower than competing flagship smartphones.

This variant of the OnePlus 5 is now available for immediate dispatch to customers.

OnePlus 5 Bug Preventing 911 Calls

Adnan Farooqui July 18, 2017


A very serious bug appears to be affecting quite a few OnePlus 5 units. Many users have complained that when they try to call 911 on their handset, it reboots on its own. The potential implications of this bug can be very harmful as the device is essentially preventing people from reaching out to emergency services.

Multiple users have complained about this issue on Reddit where it was first reported by OnePlus 5 user Nick Morelli. He tried calling 911 to report a building fire and instead found that the handset kept rebooting on its own.

Other users have reported that they’re facing a similar problem. Users in the United Kingdom say that they can’t dial 999, their emergency services contact, as the phone reboots instantly.

OnePlus has confirmed that it’s looking into the problem. It has reached out to customers and is looking into the matter. The company calls on users who are affected by this bug to reach out to OnePlus at support@oneplus.net.

This is obviously not ideal and one can only hope that OnePlus figure out quickly what’s wrong here and send out a fix for it. Users should always have the peace of mind that they can reach emergency services on their phone should there ever be a need for it.
