If you own a OnePlus 3 and is eagerly anticipating for the manufacturer to release a new software update then you should know that by now OnePlus has one for you with OxygenOS 3.2.4 hotfix but there’s something you should understand before hitting the update button. While the software update is here to eliminate the most commonly known bugs and provided hot fixes and performance improvements, the said update is also bringing a problem on its own.

Users have reported recently that their OnePlus 3 device acted and prevents Android Play from launching, another thing to note is that few users are complaining about the drop in signal strength from 4G/LTE to 3G and then abruptly to 2G signal in which by our experience is a broken or slow as a snail internet connectivity. However, there’s a suggested solution to the problem but keying in *#*#4636#*#* on the dialer and opening : > Phone information > Preferred network type > LTE only, while the fix is temporary, users are looking forward to a software fix about the matter.

As the term “hotfix” suggests, the update brings the following improvements to OnePlus 3:

  • Fixed the auto-reboot issue.
  • Improved call quality.
  • Implemented various fixes and carrier optimizations.

Despite user’s feedback, some issues are still intact after installing the new update, these problems are widely known as has already been discussed in forums in several occasions; auto focus on the main camera is still broken and conflicts with Doze and notification is still unchanged with this fix. Also the recently found QuadRooter vulnerabilities on Snapdragon devices is still unpatched with this update, so we’re hoping another update is coming our way sooner than later.
