OnePlus Issues and Company Responses



OnePlus 3T touch latency is a hot topic, but is it being blown out of proportion (partly by us)? If it is an issue, OnePlus claims they’ll fix it after they release Nougat updates. That Nougat update is currently an open BETA for folks who want to give it a spin.

Will these fixes and updates arrive in a timely fashion? Previous issues like RAM management and display accuracy point to fast fixes.
