Earlier this year when the OnePlus 5 was launched, it seemed that some users had noticed a weird effect on the display when scrolling. It almost appeared to be jelly-like in nature and gave off the illusion that maybe the phone was lagging (it wasn’t). It was an odd effect and the good news is that the OnePlus 5T could avoid that issue.
According to the folks at XDA who took a look at the phone’s kernel, it seems that the display of the OnePlus 5T has been mounted more “traditionally” this time, meaning that the jelly effect should not be present. For those unfamiliar, the jelly issue seemed to have to do with the display of the OnePlus 5 having been installed upside down (on purpose), and given that the OnePlus 5T’s display is said to have been installed “traditionally”, presumably this means the jelly effect is gone.
OnePlus had claimed that the issue was not a defect, but at the same time we can imagine that users probably weren’t too thrilled about it either, defect or not. It seems that with the OnePlus 5T the company might have learnt from their mistakes, although we have yet to check out the phone ourselves so we can’t be 100% sure if the jelly scrolling effect is gone.
The OnePlus 5T is currently set for a release on the 21st of November where it will be priced starting at $499.
