When OnePlus announced its latest flagship this past week, it stated that Android Oreo wouldn’t be coming to the 5 or the 5T officially until 2018. While unfortunate, it seems as though owners of older OnePlus devices, the 3 and 3T, are receiving the first official build of Oreo starting today…
OnePlus 3T Stories September 7, 2017
OnePlus’ track record for software updates has been shaky, to say the least, with many owners of the OnePlus 2 and X still mourning the premature end of software updates for their devices. OnePlus previously announced that Android 8.0 Oreo would be coming to the OnePlus 3/3T by the end of the year, and it looks like that day is quickly approaching.
OnePlus 3T Stories August 11, 2017
The OnePlus 3 and 3T are two of the most highly-regarded phones that OnePlus has released to date, and leading up to the announcement of the OnePlus 5, there was some concern surrounding whether or not OnePlus would actually continue to update its older hardware. Android O is still scheduled to be released for the OP3/3T, but according to a Q&A that OnePlus shared on its forums, you shouldn’t expect any major software updates following it..

Thanks to some sleuthing XDA members, we now know that some OnePlus 3T models — but not all — can enable a display mode that’s shipping as an official feature on the company’s new OnePlus 5. That new wide color gamut display option is called DCI-P3, and it’s been popularized as of late on flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S8, and the iPhone 7.
It turns out enabling it on OnePlus’ 2016 flagship, given your device happens to have the right display hardware, isn’t too difficult…

In response, a OnePlus representative has promised that the 3 and 3T will be updated to Android O “within this year.”

You can now pre-order a 128GB Gunmetal OnePlus 3T
Last year OnePlus jumped ahead on its release cycle by a few months with the OnePlus 3T, a slight upgrade over the previous OnePlus 3 with revised specs and minor improvements across the board. Along with that came a new 128GB model, but so far, it’s never been available for purchase. Now, though, that variant is available for pre-order.

The OnePlus 3T, in its 64GB Gunmetal variant, is now available…
OnePlus 3T Stories January 18, 2017
I’ve had the OnePlus 3T for about a month now, but there’s one flaw with this otherwise awesome phone that I just can’t get over. As you may have heard before, the phone has a touch latency issue. It’s not terrible — definitely not as bad as some of the bottom-of-the-line Android phones you might be familiar with. But it’s enough of an annoyance that I — and plenty of others — notice it every day.
And while OnePlus told us last month that the phone would be getting some “optimizations” relating to its touch latency with the release of OxygenOS 4.0 (which brought Android Nougat), we can’t really tell if there is any improvement in the new version. So we thought we’d bring it up again…
OnePlus 3T Stories December 31, 2016
Earlier this year, we received word from OnePlus that they planned to get Nougat onto the OnePlus 3 and 3T before the end of the year. As we quickly approached the New Year, many became skeptical that this deadline would be met. Now, on the last day of 2016, Carl Pei, Co-founder of OnePlus, has announced that they will begin rolling out a stable build of OxygenOS 4.0 (Nougat) later tonight…

The Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued over two months ago, but we still talk about it a lot for good reason, there are still quite a lot of them out there. Just last month Samsung confirmed that 90% of Note 7s had been taken off the market, but that last 10% is still a lot of phones. In fact, it’s so many that it still outnumbers the total sales of some other smartphones which are still available.

OnePlus 3T updated with optimizations and bug fixes, still no Nougat in sight
Shortly after its release last month, OnePlus has just updated the OnePlus 3T with a new build of OxygenOS, version 3.5.4. The new update, much to the dismay of many OnePlus fans, is not Nougat, but it does bring a handful of important bug fixes and optimizations.
OnePlus 3T Stories December 1, 2016
In my eyes, there are two standout Android phones for the second half of this year, and they serve slightly different target markets. The OnePlus 3T, the revamped version of the Chinese company’s OnePlus 3, brings a lot of high-powered specifications in an affordable package that’s super developer- and tinker-friendly and well-designed. The Google Pixel (XL, in this case), on the other hand, is a device that is similarly well-designed, but higher-priced, has compromises and is aimed at the average consumer — the kind of person who couldn’t care less about specs.
The problem is that a lot of people fall in between these two categories. They want a consumer-friendly phone that “just works”, and they also want a phone that has all the bells and whistles. They want a phone with a great camera and great battery life, but they also want a phone that they can tinker to their heart’s content and has as few compromises as possible at the lowest price-point possible. If you’re that person, you’re not going to go wrong with either of these choices. But let’s take a look real quick at the differences between the two phones if you still can’t decide.
OnePlus 3T Stories November 30, 2016
There’s no doubt that the OnePlus 3 and recently announced OnePlus 3T are among the best bang-for-your-buck Android smartphones on the market today, but they aren’t without issues. As owners have noticed over the past few weeks, both devices have poor touch latency. Now, Carl Pei, one of the company’s founders, has responded to those complaints.

Just yesterday OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 3T, an updated version of the already-pretty-impressive OnePlus 3. It brings an updated processor, extra storage, a new color variant, and a handful of other improvements. One of those was a larger battery. The larger 3,400 mAh battery adds a little extra stamina to the phone, but also extends the charging time ─ or at least, that’s how it’s supposed to work.
