If you’re a OnePlus 6 or 6T owner and you have tried recording some videos or audio files using apps like WhatsApp or Snapchat and you’re encountering some weird audio issues, you’re not alone. According to a smattering of user reports, it appears that more than a couple of OnePlus 6 and 6T users are experiencing weird audio where it sounds soft and distant and tinny.
There are various factors that contribute to how fast our phones are, and RAM plays a role in that by allowing more apps and processes to be stored in its memory, allowing for quick retrieval when needed. We have seen instances where having not enough RAM can result in phones not being as fast as they could, so by that logic, does having more RAM mean it’ll be faster?
Companies such as Apple, Samsung, and Huawei have made pretty great strides with regards to their smartphone photography tech, unlike Google where it was only until recently that the company started to adopt a dual camera setup. However Google had more than made up for it with their great camera software, as demonstrated in the Pixel 3 smartphones.
Just the other day OnePlus officially announced the OnePlus 6T, the company’s second flagship phone of 2018. The phone obviously comes with several new features, but the good news is that if you’re a OnePlus 6 owner who’s feeling slightly cheated due to the relatively short time span between launches, not to worry as OnePlus will not be neglecting you guys.
Since its inception in 2014, with the $299 OnePlus X, OnePlus aims at delivering the best features at a great price, and the OnePlus 6 fits perfectly in the strategy at an impressively high level. At $530 (6GB/64GB) or even $580 (8GB/64GB), the OnePlus 6 plays in the Premium Smartphone category, however, due to its powerful performance and a significant number of high-quality features, the phone feels more like a […]
The problem with Android updates is that sometimes Android handset makers can be a bit slow about releasing them. However the good news is that if you’re a OnePlus 6 owner, it seems like the company did not take long to release the update for the phone, which is now available roughly after a month of its official release.
Android 9 Pie is the latest iteration of Google’s mobile platform but it doesn’t even figure in the latest distribution figures for the platform. The firmware update has only been released for Google’s Pixel handsets and the Essential Phone so far. It will be a while before other manufacturers release it. Some have started their own beta programs for the firmware before they release it to the public. OnePlus is […]
OnePlus has been selling its smartphones in the United States for a few years now but it has never had a carrier partner. Customers could buy its devices online and use it with their carrier of choice. They couldn’t purchase it from a carrier like T-Mobile or AT&T. The company had said that it would work to ink partnerships with carriers in the United States. A new report states that […]
If you’re looking for a deal on a new smartphone, OnePlus has you covered as the company has announced a back to school promotion which involve two bundles for the OnePlus 6, as well as several others for the older OnePlus 5T. The best part about these deals is that it seems that anyone can take advantage of them.
A little over a week ago, some OnePlus 6 owners were complaining about how the displays on their phones were flickering. It seemed to have something to do with the light sensor as the displays seem to go dark and bright at very rapid speeds which created a flickering effect on the screen.
Due to the fact that different countries have people with different needs, different priorities, and different budgets, there are reasons why some companies can thrive and why some can’t. Take for example companies such as Nokia and BlackBerry, both of whom continued to thrive in certain markets long after their popularity waned in the US.
oneplus 6Updates are usually viewed as a good thing since it means either improvements, bug fixes, or even new features. Unfortunately in some cases updates can also cause some unwanted side-effects, and in the case of OnePlus 6 owners, it appears that a recent update to the handset has caused some issue with the display.
Portrait mode on the rear-facing cameras of smartphones is becoming an increasingly common feature. This is typically achieved through hardware by having the extra lens, or in the case of certain phones like the Google Pixels, this is (very convincingly) achieved through software. However portrait mode on front-facing cameras aren’t too common yet.
Owners of multiple OnePlus smartphones have complained about an “oil painting” effect in the pictures taken with the smartphone. The complaints have been made by OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and OnePlus 6 owners. The company has since acknowledged the issue and confirmed that it’s working on a fix for the problem which is going to be rolled out in the not too distant future.
Back in the day when the majority of smartphones were only available in a black finish, seeing phones launched in white was such a rare sight. These days red appears to be a pretty popular alternative to white as we have seen quite a few handset manufacturers launch their phones in a red finish.
Our phones have definitely evolved to do many things, such as take photos, play music, surf the web, play games, used for augmented and virtual reality, but at the end of the day, it is still a phone which means that it needs to make phone calls, otherwise it wouldn’t really be appropriate to call it a phone, right?
If there is a reason why some Android manufacturers choose to the lock the bootloaders on their devices, it would be to prevent outside code from being flashed onto the handset, which in theory should keep the device secure. Unfortunately a gate is only as secure as its lock, which in the case of the OnePlus 6 was found out not to be the case.
It was revealed even before the handset was announced that the OnePlus 6 would be available in a white hue. Those who don’t want to pick up the device in a darker hue will now be delighted to find out that the OnePlus 6 is going to be available in Silk White this week. This is a limited edition color option, though, so those who want to pick one up […]
Face unlock isn’t really a new feature on the OnePlus 6 given that the company already allowed the OnePlus 5T to do this. However, since that device didn’t have depth sensing or 3D face mapping, it was simply using the front camera to recognize the user’s face. OnePlus didn’t add those components to the OnePlus 6 as well and it too relies on the front camera. This means that the […]
OnePlus only recently started selling its new flagship smartphone and it appears that the one with the most onboard storage has become particularly popular with customers. It has only been a week since the company started selling the device and it’s already sold out of the 256GB OnePlus 6. This variant also features 8GB of RAM and costs $629, a full $100 above the base model of the device.
