OnePlus globally launched its latest flagship, the OnePlus 5 on Tuesday, June 20 has got its second update till now. We have had a review unit since past two weeks, and this is the second update since we got the device. Through both the updates, OnePlus has been working on bug fixes and is trying to increase the stability of the device. The updates we received so far were all minor updates, improving the device’s performance. The latest update Oxygen OS 4.5.2 was a 32MB OTA (Over-The-Air) update which promises camera improvements, the stability of Bluetooth, Cellular Networks and the overall system. It also fixes bugs where users were facing issues in installing apps and the system updates. In India, the update came with the build number A5000_22_170624.
The OnePlus 5 will be available for sale starting June 27, and the device has already received two updates addressing various issues. This shows that the company is working really hard to make the software and overall experience of the user to be a smooth and flawless one. We have had the device for past two weeks, and at the time it was running on OxygenOS 4.5.0. During our extensive review of the OnePlus 5 unit, we didn’t face any issues with the phone’s software and to say this was one of the best aspects of the OnePlus’s new flagship. Up until now, we haven’t faced any major issues with the phone’s software. The only thing which has disappointed us is the camera flaw in the OnePlus 5 which we have explained in a separate post.
