Things no one told you about the OnePlus 5

Published

on

The OnePlus 5 had launched globally a week ago with a price tag of $479 and $539 which is not cheap anymore as compared to OnePlus’s previous flagships like the OnePlus3 and OnePlus 3T. The company has made drastic design changes in the new OnePlus 5 which most of the people think as a copy of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus just because of the dual cameras.

The device is offered in two variants; the cheaper model has 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory while the other one has 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal memory. Both of the variants run on the super fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540 GPU.

The OnePlus 5 has let many people down after its launch as it doesn’t meet their expectations. Being a flagship with such a price tag, the device lacks many useful and important features which most of the other flagships at the same price range have. Let’s have a look at them.

1.    Full HD Display

Being such a great flagship and yet having a 1920 x 1080 Display? We had expected 2960 x 1440, a much better display for they hype the device had. The current display won’t be very much suitable for VR purposes.

2.    No 2x Zoom

When the specs of the device were released by the company it stated that the OnePlus 5 would have 2x lossless zoom and not optical zoom. But in fact, the device came out with 1.6x lossless zoom and the remaining will be done by the Smart Capture Technology featured in the device.

3.    No OIS and EIS

The OIS and EIS techniques are necessary for better stabilization and crisp clear photos and videos. Unfortunately, the OP5 in spite of having dual cameras lacks OIS and EIS. Due to this, low light images would be a bit blurred and dull.

4.    No IP68 Protection

Yes, the OnePlus 5 is not Water Resistant nor Dust Proof. Users will have to be a lot more careful while using the device in monsoon seasons.

5.    No wireless charging

Just like the previous flagship, the OnePlus 5 uses the Dash Charge feature for charging.

6.    No Iris Scanner

Aint the fingerprint scanner too mainstream now? :p The Iris scanner was very much expected in such a high-end flagship device.

7.    No IR Blaster

Nowadays even a Rs. 10k phone has an IR Blaster but the OnePlus 5 does not!

Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 6t

Published

on

Yesterday I was checking comments on of our article on OnePlus 6t and ALmost every other comment was mentioning about the issue they were facing on their OnePlus 6t US version. So I researched a bit more about the same topic and what I found was that there does really exist some issues with the bluetooth on these new OnePlus phones. I was trying to find the solution for this bluetooth issue with OnePlus phones since then and I think finally I have the solution. So today we will see how you can fix the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6t. There can be different methods but I will be showing you the most robust yet the most simplest one.

How to – Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6/ 6t

Method 1

OnePlus even though is growing at an exponential rate is still not even near to the software teams of Apple or Samsung. The Oxygen OS is one of the lightest ROM you can find on a phone and it works well most of the time, but sometimes it is not perfect as it should be. The OS itself has some bugs related to Bluetooth that can only be fixed by a system update that has to be done by OnePlus. The same is also discussed on its own forum here. So, does this means that we have to live like it is? well, not at all! There are a few workarounds which we will tell you here.

Most of the problems in Oxygen OS can be fixed with a simple restart and the same goes with this issue as well. A simple restart will most probably fix this issue. Yup, it does sound naive but go ahead and restart your phone. This will solve most of your problems on your phone.

Now what I’ll suggest is to bookmark this page and if you still get the same issue in future then come back and read the method 2.

Method 2 – Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 /6t

So the restart didn’t help, well, no issues. Just empty your cache and the problem should no longer occur again for a while. So how to wipe your cache? There are two methods and I’ll suggest you to do both.

  1. Open Settings – Storage & memory and scroll down to find Cache data. Tap on it and press OK to clear the cached data.
  2. Now, wipe the cache partition from the recovery menu.
    • Turn off the OnePlus 6/6t, and then press and hold the Volume Up and Power button simultaneously.
    • Release the Power button when the OnePlus logo appears, but continue to hold the Volume Up
    • On the Android recovery screen, use the Volume Down button to navigate down to wipe cache partition and press the Power button to select it.
    • Use the Volume Down button to select Yes — delete all user data, and then press the Power button to confirm.
    • Wait for the reset to finish and press the Power button when prompted with the message to Reboot system now.

Now just use your phone and connect to bluetooth devices and it should not get disconnected at all.

The OnePlus 6T is the company’s most futuristic flagship till date with Screen Unlock on the immersive 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display, class-leading hardware and meticulous industrial design to create the industry’s fastest and smoothest smartphone experience.
