The OnePlus 2 might be an older device, but it has not yet been forgotten. The device is now getting an update to OxygenOS 3.5.5, which brings many fixes and new features (though it’s not Nougat). Here’s a full list of changes:
- Enabled VoLTE functionality for select carriers
- Added App Lock
- Added Battery Saving Mode ( Settings > Battery > More )
- Added Gaming Mode ( Settings > Developer Options )
- Added Additional Options for the Alert Slider.
- Redesign of the Volume Adjustment Bar
- Shelf Optimizations
- Updated OxygenOS UI
- Updated Interface and UI of the Clock app
- Updated Android Security Patch Level to 1/12/16
- Increased System Stability
- General Bug Fixes
There are a few things to keep in mind before updating. During the update, settings like ringtones and color choices will be reset. Many stock apps like Messages, Clock, and Calculator will be replaced by OnePlus apps, though the stock apps are still on the Play Store. And lastly, going back to OxygenOS 3.1.0 will not be possible without a special downgrade package that wipes user data.
If you’re interested in the update, check for updates in Settings. It’s an incremental rollout so it might take a while to get to everyone, so if you don’t see it immediately, don’t worry about it. Let us know when you get it in the comments!
