OnePlus 3
A few weeks after the first OxygenOS Open Beta firmware, OnePlus releases a new ROM build based on Android Nougat, which now includes a Data Saver feature, as well as multiple optimizations and fixes.

OnePlus 3 still has to receive its first Android Nougat-based software update, but the beta program is running at full speed and it looks like the launch of the final build is quite close. A few weeks ago, OxygenOS Open Beta 8 arrived as the first open beta ROM for OnePlus 3 based on Nougat. Now, the third such update becomes available, integrating the feedback of the OnePlus 3 user community.

According to the official forum post about the new beta firmware, OnePlus has "optimized and improved several key areas" with the help of the community's feedback. The list of changes includes a Data Saver feature that aims to maximize cost savings, fixes for the Lock Screen clock bug in Portrait Mode and the reverting to Default Theme after reboot, as well as optimized WiFi performance, fingerprint unlocking, Expanded Screenshot quality, battery life, and overall performance.

Those who are already part of the OxygenOS Open Beta program should get the update via OTA, while the other OnePlus 3 users who are interested in getting the latest beta firmware must download and flash the OxygenOS Open Beta 10 manually. After installing it, they will get all future beta builds via OTA as well.

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.
