OnePlus 5 was one of the hottest selling smartphones of the previous year. The smartphone is in the news these days as it became the latest device to get the Android Oreo update. However, some of the users who updated their OnePlus 5 were in for a shock as they were not able to make calls after the update. While making calls, the Phone app would freeze for 15-20 seconds.

The Android Oreo OS update was being awaited by OnePlus 5 users for quite some time now. The company began to release the update but had to cancel it midway because of some bugs which were still persistent. However, a couple of days later – the Android Oreo OS update was re-released for the OnePlus 5 users, who now got it bug-free.

This gen-next Android OS brings all the new features to the OnePlus 5 users. There’s more in store for the users of this smartphone in the future as face recognition and facial unlock are heading over to the phone as well. These features were there on the OnePlus 5T and were announced to be heading over to the OnePlus 5 late last year.

This is indeed a good time to be owning a OnePlus device. With the OnePlus 6 expected to come out this year, the sky is the limit for the company. Stay tuned to us for more updates on the world of smartphone technology.
