OnePlus 3 OTA update breaks things as much as it fixes

Two steps forward, one step back. That is perhaps an accurate way to describe the dance that OnePlus has been doing ever since it launched the OnePlus 3. Although it remains one of the hottest Android flagships this year, the OnePlus 3 has been beset by controversies and technical issues. And while OnePlus has been quick to respond, even patch up, the latter, its haste might be doing it harm as well. Like the latest OxygenOS 3.2.4 update that fixes an auto-reboot problem but also inadvertently breaks Android Pay in the process.
