OnePlus 2 gets OxygenOS 3.5.6

OnePlus 2 flagship killer gets OxygenOS 3.5.6 software update
OnePlus 2
This minor update solves the network drop problem that came with OxygenOS version 3.5.5, a firmware release that arrived less than two weeks ago. Unfortunately, it does not include any new features.

Although OnePlus has the 3 and 3T handsets to worry about, it is great to see they continue to release software updates for the older "flagship killer" that made its debut back in August 2015, namely OnePlus 2. Still stuck with Android Marshmallow-based firmware, this handset received an update back on December 22 and those who applied that update started to face network problems.

Less than two weeks after OnePlus 2 handsets started to receive the OxygenOS 3.5.5 update (obviously, the one causing problems), OnePlus comes with a new software update that takes care of that issue. OxygenOS 3.5.6 is an update that only fixes persistent network drops and nothing more, according to the official OnePlus forums.

Sadly, the forum post about the OxygenOS 3.5.6 hotfix also reveals that another problem needs to be taken care of - "For users who are affected by the IMEI loss issue, we are still drafting a plan to resolve this." We will probably hear about a new patch in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
