OnePlus has started rolling out Android 7.1.1 Nougat with new OxygenOS Open Beta update for their flagship smartphones, OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. With the Nougat update many users of both the smartphones have reported a drastic decrease in battery life which is compensated by the Dash charge option in OnePlus 3 and 3T but we have personally see a decrease in battery life from SOT of around 6 hours before the update to a SOT of around 4 hours 30 mins after the Nougat update.
Oneplus has not mentioned about the rectification of this battery draining issue with this Nougat 7.1.1 update as it is a Beta update we are expecting the company to announce a fix for the battery issue in the final update. There are many new features which are included mainly in the Gallery section with features which are mentioned below.
New features with Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for OnePlus 3 and 3T:
1. New Shot on OnePlus wallpaper option
2. Improvements in Gallery
New photo editor with watermark and photo straightening options
Newly added media will be highlighted in photos section
Image location will be displayed on grid view
Media can be grouped by month and year
Folders and individual media can be hidden
3. General bug fixes for issues
4. Compatibility issues with certain third party apps
5. Android pay not able to work on London TFL/Tube – can now be resolved by updating the app via Play store
If your OnePlus 3 or 3T is running an open Beta build, the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat based on OxygenOS update will be available via OTA. But if it is not running on open Beta build for your OnePlus 3 and 3T you have to flash the new build by ADB sideload. OnePlus 3 and 3T have been one of the best smartphones launched in 2016 based on the value for money taking on the flagship devices in the market and one of their main USP was the neat design and Dash charge which has been appreciated by all.
