The OnePlus Two was announced last month in the middle of a lot of hype, so much hype that it probably was detrimental to the overall product due to the expectations it set. While we have not really played with the phone for a very long period, but our initial impression is that the OnePlus Two is an overall a real solid hardware experience hampered by a sub standard and poorly implemented software. Unlike its predecessor, the OnePlus One where the OS was done by the team from CyanogenMod, OnePlus themselves are handling the software thanks to an in house team.
This is why a large portion of blame for the software problems that are being faced are on the head of OnePlus’ team. To solve this out, OnePlus has rolled out the first major update to their OxygenOS 2.0 taking it to version OxygenOS 2.1.0. The update is available as an OTA to a small section of users for now and is expected to be rolled out to all the users by Tuesday, that is today.
The update fixes a lot of bugs including enabling the manual mode in the camera, RAW image support for third party camera apps, a new color balancer to adjust the color tone and scheme as well as improved some lag issues that were persistent in the experience while switching the toggles. The entire set of changes that OnePlus has brought includes:
Here are some highlights:
We’ve added manual mode for all you photography enthusiasts. Hope this will give you more control for capturing that perfect moment.
Raw support is now enabled for 3rd party camera apps that support this format
There’s a new color balance slider in Display for adjusting the color tone of your screen. You can now go warmer or cooler as you please.
Added Exchange support.
We fixed some issues that were causing problems with popular 3rd party apps.
Telephony service improvements so you no longer get the lag when you turn on/off airplane mode.
