Update to Fix OnePlus 3's Launch Woes

Update to Fix OnePlus 3's  Launch Woes
A software update for the OnePlus 3 smartphone aims to address many of the handset's performance problems.

(CCM) — OnePlus is hoping to silence critics of its newly released OnePlus 3 smartphone by rolling out an update to its OxygenOS operating system. The release of OxygenOS 3.2.0 was announced yesterday, and the company has started distributing it to OnePlus 3 devices via an OTA (over the air) update. The company expects that the update will be available to all devices within about two days.

Among the criticisms that have been leveled at the OnePlus 3 are the way that colors are displayed on the screen and the device's inability to utilize its 6GB of RAM to its full potential. The 3.2.0 update aims to address these complaints by introducing sRGB mode —which has to be enabled after the update in the developer settings— and by offering improved RAM management that allows more applications to run in memory at the expense of battery life. It also improves the performance and accuracy of the device's GPS, enhances audio playback quality, and adds new functionality to the camera. OnePlus has also taken the opportunity to update its custom icons packs, fix some issues with notifications and the Gallery app, remove bugs in the Clock and Music apps, and implement the latest Google security patches.
