OnePlus canceled the upgrade of OnePlus 5 to Android Oreo due to errors

Something relaxed the developers of OnePlus. In early December, after numerous complaints from users, the company recalled the firmware Oxygen OS 5.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo for OnePlus 3 / 3T, and now the story was repeated with OnePlus 5.

What happened?

The joy of the owners of OnePlus 5 about the release of a stable version of Oxygen OS 5.0 did not last long. It turned out that most of the bugs from the beta versions were not fixed in the final release. Some devices went into a cyclic reboot, others had problems with the Bluetooth connection. A bug with double vibration when pressing the on-screen buttons has not gone away. Users complained about the rapid discharge of the battery and even deterioration of the quality of the images taken on the main camera.

The OnePlus report says that the company is already working on Oxygen OS 5.0.1 with the necessary corrections, but the release date for the update is not specified. Those who want to return to the previous version, you will have to install the previous firmware with the removal of all data.

Most likely, the company for the second time stepped on the same rake. Even after updating OnePlus 3, users noticed that the shell is a strange hybrid of Android Oreo and Nougat (the settings application, Google services and some system files were from the previous version of the platform). In the firmware for OnePlus 5 there were also elements of "Nougat", and it remains only to hope that the developers will draw conclusions from their miscalculation.
