There’s no doubt that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are great smartphones, especially for their cost.

Pei revealed on Twitter last night, with minimal details, that the company has finally “checked off” the issues regarding touch latency on the OnePlus 3/3T. Of course, we’ve yet to learn when this update will be rolling out to user’s devices, but it’s at least nice to hear that the company has made progress on this matter following the “fix” that didn’t fix anything in Android Nougat a few months ago.
