You still need an invite to purchase the OnePlus One, however if you’ve managed to get the budget-friendly “flagship killer” in your grasp, you’ll be glad to know that its Android 4.4.4 update is now live. Today’s software push resolves a number of bugs, including a fix for accidental off-screen gestures while the phone is in your pocket, along some fine-tuning to the device’s display.
