OnePlus 3T is an uncommon phone from an unconventional company. A mid-season replacement, it’s pretty much like the phone it replaces. The exterior is same as the OnePlus 3, except the color change. And internal bumps are pretty minor. But one thing is clear – at $440, this is still the best phone in around $400 price range. It’s got Pixel level specs and performance at half the price and that’s commendable. It is a good phone.
OnePlus 3 (and now the 3T) are among those rare Android phones that have a physical mute switch. It might not sound like a big deal but it’s a huge help. Putting your hand in your pocket, finding the slider, and shifting it, solely based on the feel thereby turning your phone silent mode is, well, a pure joy.
Against all odds, OnePlus actually met their own deadline for the Android 7.0 Nougat update, with the update for both OnePlus 3 and 3T going live just hours before the deadline – 1st Jan 2017. And this is a stable release. And in true OnePlus spirit, it mostly steers close to the stock Android, with a bit of tweaking here and there.
Just about managing to stick to its word, OnePlus started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T from last night. Since this is a gradual rollout, it is unlikely that you will receive the update instantly on your device. Nonetheless, there are a few tricks that you can try to get the Nougat update on your handset right away.
Just about managing to stick to its words, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei today announced through Twitter that the official Nougat update has started rolling out for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.
OnePlus today released the third Nougat beta for the OnePlus 3. The team behind the OS has taken feedback submitted to them with the release of OxygenOS Open Beta 9 and has incorporated those changes in the latest OxygenOS Open Beta 10.
The OnePlus 3 has turned out to be one of the most popular smartphones of this year. After the failure of the OnePlus 2, OnePlus went back to the drawing board and came up with the excellent OnePlus 3. As if the customization price-to-performance ratio of the phone was not already enough, OnePlus has also ensured that the 3 is among the most developer friendly phones out there.
Along with a new build of OxygenOS for the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus also released a new Nougat beta for the OnePlus 3. The second beta update for the handset is essentially aimed at fixing all the bugs and issues that were present in the first build.
For OnePlus 3 owners who aren’t afraid to put some beta software on their device, OnePlus has a surprise.
