Android P update just announced for OnePlus 3 and 3T

The OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T were announced to get an Android P update this week, officially. That means that the phone that was released in the first half of 2016 is now getting an update to the newest version of Android in August of 2018. What is this, some sort of company which updates its smart devices like it should? It's absolute madness!

How did OnePlus just beat Apple and Samsung?

How did OnePlus just beat Apple and Samsung?

A perfect storm of sales and big-name new phone releases made OnePlus win the quarter for premium device sales in India in Q2 2018.

OnePlus took advantage of the day with promotions that work particularly well in India, too: EMI and cashback offers.

This device's insides and outsides aren't particularly hidden at this point, as a number of leaks have shown the device's body and specs online over the past few weeks.

Look, OnePlus 6 is probably a well-priced copycat, too

Look, OnePlus 6 is probably a well-priced copycat, too

When you look at the latest leak of the OnePlus 6, you'll think - wow, but that does look familiar, familiar indeed. The device in the leak seems to work with a display with a notch at the top, and around back it has a pill-shaped arrangement of cameras (two cameras, as it were.) On the back is a fingerprint scanner and an LED flash, as well. If this design blows anyone's mind, I'd ask them how they've so successfully lived under a rock for the past half-year.

OnePlus 5, 5T can stream HD video if you mail it in

For all the praise surrounding last year's OnePlus 5 and the newer OnePlus 5T, the phones have been missing one important feature, a surprise considering how they're billed as alternate Android flagships: the ability to stream HD video content from a number of sources, namely Netflix.

OnePlus Camera M mod improves OnePlus 5/5T photography

OnePlus Camera M mod improves OnePlus 5/5T photography

There seems to be a new pattern among some of the newer and smaller players in the smartphone market. Launch a phone with “decent”, sometimes even dismal camera performance and then promise a firmware update that fixes it later. That fix does come, eventually, but sometimes the results are less than satisfying. Fortunately there are some rather devoted app developers, like XDA Senior Member txx1219, who develop some mods, like this OnePlus Camera M, that takes the disappointing stock OEM camera app and magically transforms it into something good.
