OnePlus 7 and 7T Android 11 update is reportedly very buggy

OnePlus has been making great strides and making big promises regarding its Android updates but it might need a bit more work when it comes to the quality of those updates. Though fortunately not the norm, OnePlus has been known to have pushed updates with rather notable issues, some of them worse than others. That is the unfortunate experience that OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T owners are reportedly having after the Android 11 and OxygenOS 11 upgrade brought not only new features but also bugs that remain unfixed more than a month later.

OnePlus Theme Store might be coming with Android 12

OnePlus Theme Store might be coming with Android 12

Perhaps more than any major smartphone maker, OnePlus is pretty proud of how community-centric it is. In fact, there have been times when it was the community's voice that was heard over the company's own decisions, at least in places where the two could meet halfway. That happened when OnePlus put the much-requested Always-On Display or AOD feature to a community vote and the company is again heeding its users' request for a theme store that may be coming in the next major upgrade for Android and OxygenOS.

OnePlus Watch Always-On Display finally arrives in latest update

OnePlus Watch Always-On Display finally arrives in latest update

Although it wasn't its first wearable, OnePlus' first smartwatch wasn't as warmly received as its smart fitness band. Perhaps it was partly due to high expectations for a wearable that was hoped to be launched nearly half a decade ago. While the OnePlus Watch has been panned for its lackluster experience, the good news is that the company is quick to push out updates. The latest, in fact, brings one much-requested feature that puts it on par with most smartwatches, but the cost of battery life.

OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 11 update will be a very long wait

OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 11 update will be a very long wait

OnePlus always prided itself on being able to quickly iterate over its software. It also boasts of listening closely to its community and, when possible, giving in to their requests. One of those revolves around an Android 11 update for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T. It turns out that it will indeed still happen but it won't be surprising if it doesn't happen until sometime early next year or later this year at the earliest.

OnePlus Watch is a bit of a latecomer to the party but it did eventually arrive.

OnePlus Watch update addresses major complaints, AOD still coming

OnePlus launched its first smartwatch last month after years of rumors and growing expectations. Unfortunately, the OnePlus Watch seems to have fallen short of the hype it generated, with many reviewers panning the wearable device. Fortunately, many of those complaints revolve around errors or missing features that can be addressed by software updates. That's exactly what OnePlus is doing now with the OnePlus Watch's first-ever firmware update that will hopefully make the $160 smartwatch a bit more worthwhile.

OnePlus 9 Pro overheating problem has a fix coming

OnePlus 9 Pro overheating problem has a fix coming

Given how powerful smartphones have become today, people expect more from their devices and sometimes push them to their limits. Of course, there are consequences to those and heat along with battery life are the biggest costs of taxing smartphones hard. Most of the time, though, only the most extreme use cases can really run a phone hot to the point of becoming dangerous but it seems that owners of the OnePlus 9 Pro are experiencing it more frequently than they should.

OnePlus 9 Pro base model is still nowhere to be found

OnePlus 9 Pro base model is still nowhere to be found

It has barely been two weeks since OnePlus announced its early 2021 champs but it seems that the OnePlus 9 series has been struck by the company's notorious launch day bad luck. If asked, OnePlus probably would prefer that people buy its top-of-the-line and most expensive OnePlus 9 Pro model, one that came with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Not everyone, however, might not be too keen on its price tag but you might not have any choice anyway since the more affordable base model seems to still be missing in action.

OnePlus Watch always-on display feature might still happen

OnePlus Watch always-on display feature might still happen

OnePlus really isn't a fan of always-on display, a.k.a. AOD, features, it seems. It took a strong community vote to almost force it to implement such a feature on its phones. Even then, it still reserved the right to change its mind if it couldn't find a solution that would satisfy its standards when it comes to battery life. That is, of course, history by now but it seems that history might repeat itself with the OnePlus Watch though, hopefully, that will also end well in the long run.
