OnePlus 3T

A new major update of Oxygen OS 4.5.0 is getting pushed to the OnePlus 3/3T. OnePlus has mentioned a sizeable list of new features packaged with the OnePlus 5 that will make their way to the duo. The OTA update is rolling put phase-wise and users might see it hitting devices from Tuesday. The update size is pretty small 197 MB for so many features. Although, if someone wants to root and use the factory image it will take up 1.5 GB of storage. Below is the list of new features from the OnePlus Forum.

Another feature is ‘Gaming Do Not Disturb’ mode which does exactly what it says. Then, there is the low priority notification that mode that will arrive on your phone discreetly. Notably, the Oxygen OS 4.5.0 also inherits the OnePlus 5 Slate font which is a good option. The update also adds a secure box to the File Manager app and there’s a new redesigned Dash Charge animation. There are some minor design tweaks that improve the system apps like the Phone app. Also, there is an improved editor in the Gallery and the ‘Shot on OnePlus’ watermark also makes its way to the OnePlus 3/3T.

Apart from that, you’ll see some minor design tweaks that improve the system apps like the Phone app. There is an improved editor in the Gallery and the ‘Shot on OnePlus’ watermark also makes its way to the OnePlus 3/3T. The update doesn’t contain the September Security patch and it means that the Blueborne bug on these two last year phones still looms large.
