OxygenOS 3.0 enters public beta
As we already found out not long ago, OnePlus has begun soak testing for OxygenOS 3.0 for OnePlus 2. The Marshmallow-based firmware has apparently proven itself reliable enough to be shared with the users, so OnePlus is now moving it to the public beta stage.
According to the official forum post about this ROM, "What’s available today is a daily-driver-material community release of 3.0. If you’re the type who won't mind rolling up your sleeves a bit to get your Marshmallow on, this one’s for you." The company still needs feedback on network testing, camera improvements, as well as overall performance and battery life.
In addition to the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow core, the highlights of OxygenOS 3.0 beta include a new wallpaper picker, enhancements to Shelf UX, 45 percent faster fingerprint reader (compared to OxygenOS 2.2.1), various settings changes, general performance improvements, as well as the latest security patches.
