The OnePlus audience is one of the most dedicated. If you see the owner of the smartphone of this brand in front of you, it is likely that this is not his first device. However, OnePlus really has something to love. Not only are brand smartphones regularly recognized as one of the fastest on the market, they also usually receive updates almost immediately after they are released for Google Pixel. But, as this often happens, sometimes a bungle happens even on OnePlus, which has to urgently correct mistakes.
Why OnePlus 6 does not upgrade to Android 10
OnePlus had to suspend the distribution of Android 10 for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, which released a week earlier. Of course, the manufacturer will not force to roll back already updated devices to Android 9 Pie, but those who have not had time to install the update will now receive only the updated assembly, which will be released as soon as the developers fix the discovered flaws. They can’t be called critical, but they have all existed since beta testing, and it’s rather strange that the company didn’t eliminate them at the time of release.
“After we announced the launch of Android 10 for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T last week, I received more than 20 personal messages from users who asked about the update status. I am going to answer this question to everyone right away. The update is still not available for download to all users. Our team is working on a new firmware assembly with a number of problems fixed, and it will be released as soon as it is ready. Then the update can be downloaded by all those who have not yet received it, ”wrote a representative of OnePlus.
OxygenOS 10 bugs
Fingerprint scanner animation lag at the moment of recognition; Problems in the mechanism of hiding the notch in the screen; The lack of a Digital Wellbeing app to control the time spent with a smartphone.
Yes, these are all the shortcomings of the release version of Android 10 for OnePlus 6 and 6T, described by OnePlus, which did not stop her from recalling the update. The same iOS 13 suffered from a lot more problems, but Apple, instead of stopping the distribution of the new version of the operating system, began to release weekly updates with patches. Despite the fact that this did not solve all the problems, users still have access to the update. Therefore, the recall of Oxygen OS 10 raises a number of questions.
Double job or cheating
If these are really all the flaws, it turns out that OnePlus just does the extra work, because she just needed to release a small patch with corrections. Most likely, experienced developers could “assemble” it in a few days. However, there is a possibility that OnePlus simply hid from us real flaws in the firmware, which could be much larger. For example, the company’s developers could well have missed any vulnerabilities in the release version of Android 10 that could allow hacking updated smartphones, and now, in order not to stir up panic, they simply hide it from users.
