First OnePlus 10 Pro release date moved: Here’s why

First OnePlus 10 Pro release date moved: Here’s why

The OnePlus 10 Pro is ready to roll in China first, and the rest of the world second. As we've been told directly by a OnePlus representative that the company "moved the launch" of the OnePlus 10 Pro "forward from its original schedule" specifically due to the Chinese New Year holiday. Yes, it is fairly easy to predict when the new year celebration will take place each year, but availability of tech here in 2022 isn't as simple to plan for as it once was.

Samsung and OnePlus will have a showdown next week

There are only a few days left before we bid good riddance to 2021, but it seems that 2022 is already gearing up to have a messy start, at least for the consumer electronics world. Companies are backing out en masse from an in-person appearance in Las Vegas for CES 2022 due to new health concerns and big-name events have begun to pop. There is no stopping some companies from making a big splash, and Samsung and OnePlus have amusingly chosen the same date to jump in.

Wait on that OnePlus 9 OxygenOS 12 update: Here’s why

Wait on that OnePlus 9 OxygenOS 12 update: Here’s why

OnePlus's custom Android spin was a point of pride for both the company and phone owners. Although it ended up not using the famed CyanogenMod, it was not that heavy on customizations, and the changes that OnePlus added on top were generally received well and highly desired. Recently, however, OxygenOS has started to become a liability more than an asset, and the supposedly stable OyxgenOS 12 update for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro did a lot of damage to its image. OnePlus is coming out with an update to address some of those bugs, but it doesn't exactly address all the concerns about the ColorOS-based spin.

OnePlus Buds Z2 released in USA: Considering OPPO and value

OnePlus Buds Z2 released in USA: Considering OPPO and value

With OnePlus Buds Z2, the company releases a pair of earbuds that bring noise cancellation tech down to a sub-$100 price point. These aren't the sort of earbuds that'll go to war with the Sony WF-1000XM4, but they're certainly in contention with the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 - and they might just be inexpensive enough to make the jump.

OnePlus Nord 2 CE’s existence is a confusing proposition

OnePlus Nord 2 CE’s existence is a confusing proposition

OnePlus' direction with its new Nord brand hasn't been the easiest to decipher and divine. Now running three distinct device lines, it almost feels like the company is throwing everything it can at a wall to see which ones stick. A few months back, it launched no less than three phones under that name, including the somewhat odd OnePlus Nord CE. In the next month or two, the company might expand that family, but this OnePlus "Ivan" doesn't seem to be offering much over what the first "Core Edition" phone already did.

Your OnePlus phone may soon lock most Google Camera magic

Your OnePlus phone may soon lock most Google Camera magic

Despite many missteps, OnePlus has enjoyed a strong following of fans that believe in the upstart's vision for smartphones. In the past months, however, it may have been increasingly obvious that the company is heading in a totally different direction. Part of that is probably being blamed on OnePlus' "merger" with cousin OPPO, and the effects of this change are now being felt in a very negative way. In addition to being terribly buggy, OxygenOS 12 might also be bringing in too much of OPPO's ColorOS, including the way it closes the doors on some features that OnePlus users have been enjoying for quite a while now.

OnePlus bugs aplenty with OxygenOS 12: It’s not just you!

OnePlus bugs aplenty with OxygenOS 12: It’s not just you!

Part of OnePlus' motto to "Never Settle" also involved the customer experience when it came to its phones' software. By shipping with an almost vanilla version of Android, the company could ensure speedy updates and at least fewer bugs of its own making. Even some OnePlus fans, however, might argue that that hasn't been the case for a long time, and things might actually start to get worst. The latest OxygenOS 12 release, for example, is irking many OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro owners because of numerous bugs that are partly being blamed on OPPO's ColorOS.
