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. Fortunately, OnePlus has just announced an update to the glaring issue, but it requires an unorthodox process: owners need to physically mail the phone in.

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.
