OnePlus 3 finally receives Android Pie update (Review)

OnePlus 3 was a welcome back version for OnePlus after the failing of OnePlus 2 & X. This smartphone transformed the momentum of the company and they never looked back later. Like many Android front runner smartphones, OnePlus obtained two significant Android updates. It came out of the box with Android Marshmallow, then it obtained Android Nougat and also Oreo in 2015. Now, OnePlus gave the 3rd upgrade to this device, the Pie upgrade.

Back in July OnePlus stunned every OnePlus 3/3T user with this information. They took a lot of time to make this last major update as secure as they can. Last month they released Community Beta update to attempt this with few interested users before launching the update for every person and 20 days ago they presented the stable OTA upgrade of Pie on both OnePlus 3/3T with OxygenOS 9.0.2 on the top, and lately they turned out OxygenOS 9.0.3 with parallel WhatsApp bug repair. Here are some of the outstanding features of this update:

This Android Pie acquired a handful of modifications in terms of brand-new attributes. OnePlus bought the typical Pie stuff with this upgrade like the brand-new design in quick toggles & settings, and flexible battery. The phone appears completely brand-new while using it. The recent tab is changed as well as quantity control with quantity switch is currently more convenient. This is all from Google itself. OnePlus likewise added a few of their own brand-new features into this update. Gaming Mode 3.0 is one of them, with more control over alerts while gaming. Do Not Disturb is enhanced, default phone dialer has Google Duo built in, and also electronic camera app has Google Lens support.

Camera App:
The Camera app is updated with brand-new UI on Pie. The picture handling is enhanced a little bit, with more all-natural colors and detailing. Yet still, the cam optimization is the largest imperfection of all OnePlus applications, as they can’t use the equipment to the max. That’s where Gcam jumps in and also the efficiency with Gcam is the same as Android Oreo, excellent but takes time to procedure photo. Video top quality is the same, fairly good secured with OIS on Complete HD videos, and also with EIS on 4K videos. Additionally, the camera application now has built-in Google Lens alternative, which turns out extremely helpful at times.

UI Experience & Performance:
The UI is altered a lot with Android Pie, as compared to Oreo because OnePlus really did not make the UI altered significantly from Nougat to Oreo, but with Pie, the phone is looking totally various.

The efficiency is likewise very good on Pie, an extremely minor change exists as compared to Oreo. It can still run any graphics intensive game without much issue, yet in PUBG the game starts to lag, sometimes make it unplayable. The RAM administration is refrained from doing quite possibly with Pie, it begins to eliminate applications in history after opening up 7-8 apps. Though this won’t influence any person with typical usage.

Battery:
With Android Pie, the battery is visibly boosted. The screen in a timely manner can be touched to 4 hrs with modest usage, and it can hover between 5-6 hrs. The stand-by time is also enhanced by Oreo.

Yet to obtain the enhanced battery life the phone requires the time of around 4 fee cycles because the brand-new Pie function ‘Adaptive Battery’ needs time to adjust our usage pattern and optimize background task according to that. And the Dash Fee (or the brand-new Fast Charge) works faultlessly.

Sound:
With the last update on Android Oreo, the noise from the earpiece went a little bit low, which was irritating in some cases. Now with the Pie update, it’s enhanced. They appear from the earpiece is relatively loud. The built-in microphone is also functioning excellently. The audio from a 3.5 mm headphone jack is still the exact same, and I discovered a very small improvement in the vocals from OnePlus Bullets Wireless. Likewise, the connection array is extended a little bit. So Bluetooth sound is enhanced with Android Pie. The sound by means of the speaker stayed unmodified, and that’s extremely typical.
