OnePlus simply launched their model new flagship smartphone — the OnePlus 5T — and whereas everybody right here at work is raving about how good it’s, and the way it fixes the entire OnePlus 5’s flaws, I, for one, do have some reservations with the gadget.
For probably the most half, I do agree that the OnePlus 5T has fastened nearly each flaw the OnePlus 5 had, nevertheless it screws up one massive factor, too.
Model New Smartphone, a 12 months Previous OS
Yeah, the OnePlus 5T ships with Oxygen OS based mostly on high of Android Nougat. I miss out on how OnePlus could be excused for launching a ‘flagship’ smartphone with out the newest model of Android in it?
What’s extra, OnePlus is prioritising Oreo updates for the OnePlus 3 and 3T greater than for the OnePlus 5T or the OnePlus 5. In reality, the OnePlus 5 will likely be getting the Oreo beta later this month; the OnePlus 5T then again? December.
I get it, updating older gadgets first lets your customers know that you just’re not abandoning them, however significantly, OnePlus, it does make your new customers really feel that they’re not getting any love (other than ‘bug fixes’).
My cause for anticipating Oreo begin with the truth that a flagship ought to ship with the newest model of Android, and cease at the truth that I actually love Oreo’s options, just like the superior Auto-fill performance.
On the finish of the day, I do just like the OnePlus 5T, so all I can hope is for OnePlus to push a secure replace early subsequent 12 months, for each the OnePlus 5T and for my each day driver OnePlus 5.
