OnePlus 10 Pro "major" scrolling issues are apparently uncovered by a prominent tech blog
The GSMArena contributor Prasad has felt it necessary to call OnePlus out over a "major scrolling problem" experienced while using a unit of this brand's latest premium smartphone, the 10 Pro. This claim is backed up by videos of the device in question demonstrating the issues in 2 apps, Instagram and Flamingo.
They consist of some arguably visible and obstrusive stuttering and scroll latency, the latter of which is particularly evident in Flamingo (a third-party Twitter app). These discrepancies are ostensibly linked to one of the 10 Pro's most up-to-date features: a 1-120Hz adaptive refresh rate facilitated by the phone's new LTPO 2.0 display.
As Prasad notes, the issues could be caused by an overly aggressive application of this mode baked into the latest version of OxygenOS 12 for the 10 Pro. Therefore, it is possible that the problem could be ameliorated in a future software update.
In addition, OnePlus developers may not have had the chance to optimize for Flamingo, an app that, while still capable of updating, is no longer available on the Google Play Store. Then again, that could not explain all the jitter and lag in Instagram.
Nevertheless, this is a potential (and very public) blow for an Android brand that has partially built its name on upholding a "fast and smooth" user experience. On the other hand, this issue does not seem to be that widespread among other users, with some respondents to the GSMArena article claiming that their own 10 Pros remain unaffected by this new potential bug.
In addition, we did not encounter similar issues in our 10 Pro review, although a tendency to lock at 60fps under load was observed. Finally, the bulk of complaints among users on OnePlus' own community forum (almost inevitably) hinge on thermal management and battery life to date.
