Android Pie update OEM checklist: who’s in and who’s not

Android Pie update OEM checklist: who’s in and who’s not

It’s that time of year again. New Android version, new guessing and then waiting game for which phones will get the update and, just as importantly, when. Things have gotten better over the years, in no small part thanks to high-profile security scares and Apple gloating, but it’s far from being ideal. Ideally, that would be when lists like this will be superfluous. But until that glorious day, here are some of the smartphone makers who have gone public about their love for Pie and those that have been unsurprisingly yet annoyingly silent for the past weeks.

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. Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone X are not currently in vogue as we're a few months away from a new launch, and Galaxy Note 9 is coming at the start of August - so that leaves OnePlus 6 to clean up, really. OnePlus took advantage of the day with promotions that work particularly well in India, too: EMI and cashback offers.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau: no to wireless charging for now

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau: no to wireless charging for now

Although it may have had a few lapses here and there, OnePlus has tried hard to stay true to its commitment to “Never Settle”. That, however, may have ironically caused it to ironically miss out on some features that some of its own users ask for.

You don’t want a new smartphone

Here in the summer of 2018 there's a lull in technological advancements in smartphones. You don't need a new smartphone - you can get a device released last year, or even the year before that, that has most or all of the same essential features released in phones coming this year.

OnePlus makes good on some promises, still working on others

OnePlus makes good on some promises, still working on others

One of the benefits of being a small phone maker, with a comparatively smaller customers base, is that you can move more quickly than giant companies. OnePlus is taking advantage of that agility by holding “Open Ear Forums”, face-to-face meetups with its fans and customers, where it hears their complaints and wishes. Proving that it isn’t just listening to them, the company has just published a list of the promises that it already fulfilled as well as those that they promise are still being worked on.
