As a Christmas gift for its users, OnePlus has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the OnePlus 5. Coupled with OxygenOS 5.0, the update brings a plethora of new features and enhancements to the handset.
The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL easily have the best smartphone camera on the market right now. On paper, the camera specs of the handsets might not seem that impressive but thanks to Google’s machine learning prowess, both phones can capture some stunning photos.
Earlier this year, Xiaomi and Google surprised everyone by launching the Mi A1, an Android One handset. While the Mi A1 was essentially a rebranded Mi 5X, it ran a near-stock build of Android Nougat which is what many power users have long asked from a Xiaomi handset.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the first flagship device from Samsung to feature a dual-camera setup at its rear. The secondary 12MP telephoto lens features an f/2.6 aperture and OIS and allows the Note 8 to take some pretty incredible shots.
Xiaomi is now the only OEM to offer an infrared blaster on all its budget and mid-range devices. Apart from the Mi Mix 2, all smartphones launched by Xiaomi in the last year in India feature a handy IR blaster. The company’s latest handset, the Redmi Y1 and Y1 Lite, also feature an infrared blaster at the top.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have turned out to be the most popular Android smartphones launched this year. The bezel-less design and the excellent 12MP shooter at the rear of the handset has probably lead to hoards of iPhone users to switch to the handset as well.
Like with any other Samsung device, the Galaxy Note 8 comes with so many features that first-time owners of the handset are likely going to feel overwhelmed. On the positive side, Samsung allows one to customise and tweak almost any part of the interface according to one’s liking which is usually appreciated by power users.
Usually, when your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ encounters an error, it automatically restarts or the culprit app automatically crashes. However, in certain cases, your phone might just freeze and stop responding to any touch inputs. Other times, it might just start behaving weirdly and you might not be able to bring up the power menu to restart the device.
Yesterday, OnePlus released the first beta build of OxygenOS based on Android 8.0 Oreo for the OnePlus 5. With the final Oreo update for the device scheduled to be available in Q1 2018, OnePlus 5 owners still have to go through a long wait to be able to get their hands on the device.
OnePlus has been trying to make a name for itself by quickly rolling out Android updates for its devices. The company had been running an Oreo beta program for the OnePlus 3/3T since the last one month, and today it surprised everyone by commencing the official rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo for the devices.
