Those of us that got an invite and bit the bullet on the Oneplus haven’t been disappointed with the hardware, but the software has been a late Beta at best until the last update that resolved the Touchscreen issues. There have been a few persistent issues recently, one being a memory leak causing screen artifacts which can be resolved with a simple reboot. Another being a WiFi stability issue which is frustrating to say the least if you’re streaming music!
Great news is that Oneplus have started rolling out the CM11S 44S build as an OTA Update. For Australian users lucky enough to have their hands on the device, the issues you’ll see resolved are
- Fixed issues with memory causing screen artifacts
- Fixed issues with random reboots and instability
- Fixed issues with WiFi and modem crashes
- Fixed issues with Filesystem
- Fixed issues with “black bar”
- Fixed issues with persist partition corruption
As usual it’s a staged roll out which means that they’ll release it slowly to various regions step by step. Hold on, the updates are coming; slowly and steadily. The last two updated have been very big steps in making the Oneplus a realistic daily driver for users and if this latest update does deliver the promised resolutions; I’d say we’re finally there!
Do you believe the Oneplus is ready for “average users” to use as a daily driver?
