OnePlus 3 and 3T users in the Open Beta Program have received an update that finally gives them a taste of Android 8.0.0 Oreo. It's but a beta update, of course, so it comes with a slew of bugs and worries.

OnePlus may not be in the good graces of users at the moment but the company still has its selling points, one of which is an impressive dedication to the software scene—when it feels like it, anyway. Android Oreo was launched close to two months ago but till date, only the Nexus and Pixel phones, and the Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact have gotten a taste of Oreo goodness. OnePlus' last-gen OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are the latest devices to get a semblance of a lick at Oreo, with users in the Beta Program getting the update earlier in the day.

The update is, of course, a beta one, which means it's far from perfect at the moment. While users get picture-in-picture mode, notification dots, and a few other Oreo-exclusive features, they also have to deal with a few bugs like lag in the fingerprint sensor, inability to connect to Google Photos, and unstable Bluetooth and NFC processes. 

Users of both devices would do well to cherish this update, as it's slated to be the last major one they get, which is rather disappointing, as the 3T was launched just 10 months ago.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
