Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has started rolling out the OxygenOS 3.2 update to OnePlus 3 users. The update brings an array of fixes including better RAM management, a concern expressed by users sometime back.
The update weighs close to 400MB in size and is a n OTA one which the company says should roll out to users in every region within the next two days. Below are the list of fixes and improvements as detailed in the change log:
- Enabled standard RGB mode in developer options
- Improved RAM management
- Improved GPS performance
- Enhanced audio playback quality
- Updated custom icon packs
- Fixed some issues with notifications
- Improved camera quality/functionality
- Fixed some issues in Gallery
- Implemented latest Google security patches
- Fixed bugs in Clock/Music apps
OnePlus 3's RAM capacity particularly received negative feedback on user forums where people said despite a mammoth 6GB RAM, operations on the device became sluggish under duress. To clarify the potential of the RAM, OnePlus CEO Carl Pei even took to social media stating that the phone's RAM management provides the "best user experience" by favouring battery performance instead of multi-tasking. The updated RAM management option will hopefully resolve that issue now.
The other complaint from users was a comparatively lack-lustre display despite the 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution with 401 ppi. OnePlus has introduced a sRGB mode to fix this issue although it looks like this feature may only be available to developer account holders for now.
The Oxygen OS 3.2 is based on Android's 6.0.1 Marshmallow version with OnePlus's own custom features. Unlike OnePlus One which had CyanogenMod, all OnePlus devices now have Oxygen OS on its system after the company fell out with Cyanogen a few years back.
