OnePlus has not had a good start with its flagship product, the OnePlus 3. Ever since the phone was launched, the complaints about it have been innumerable. And this is not a low battery rant, or something about the camera bump.
It is the firmware which the impressively specced handset, ships with, and suffers from.
OxygenOS is a disaster. There is no question about it, and the sheer lack of a proper volume adjustment panel, which is available in even basic smartphones proves this. Now, coming to the news from last night, we reported that OnePlus had begun seeding the OxygenOS 3.2.0 OTA Update to the OnePlus 3.
It has unfortunately been pulled by OnePlus, after there were some reports from users about “issues”. OnePlus did not detail on the issues, but a quick search on reddit, reveals that it was related to IMEI being leaked, while updating the phone using a public Wi-Fi connection. It is unclear if this is actually a verified one, but it does sound pretty serious enough, for the company to pull the plug.
This is what the official statement at the OnePlus forums reads:
Due to some reports of issues while upgrading, we are temporarily stopping the rollout to investigate. We will start back up as soon as possible.
Many users who have updated to OxygenOS 3.2.0 have reported that they notice a significant improvement to the performance of the OnePlus 3.
