OnePlus OxygenOS released for the OnePlus One
Well, March 27 came and went without the release of OxygenOS, and OnePlus apologized for that, but over the weekend, with a little bit of delay, the Lollipop-based custom operating system is finally live, and ready for you to check out, should you feel adventurous or ready to bring a breath of fresh air to your OnePlus One smartphone.
What should you expect? A very light Android 5.0.2-based OS, but packed with essential features, as OnePlus puts it, with some non-Lollipop specific features that the company underlines:
- Gestures: Several original OnePlus features have been built right into OxygenOS, including screen-off gestures like double-tap to wake, music controls, and shortcuts for the camera and flashlight.
- Customization: With customizable lockscreen wallpapers and the ability to switch between hardware and software navigation keys, OxygenOS allows you to make your phone distinctly yours.
- Quick Settings: With our new quick settings feature, tiles can be added, removed, and re-organized with the click of a button, and it blends beautifully right into the notification tray’s UI. It just makes sense.
