OnePlus commits to several fixes for next OnePlus 6 update

Whenever a new smartphone hits the market, it seems to be pretty standard practice that new owners discover a host of issues that somehow made it through the quality control checks that manufacturers implement. The OnePlus 6 is no exception. Although no major issues like exploding batteries have been identified yet, there are several items to be addressed that can be irritating and annoying to users who just plunked down some hefty money for a new device. OnePlus has updated a Q&A post on their web site that outlines some fixes that are in the works.

OnePlus has engaged in a proactive approach to identifying issues that might need to be addressed instead of just waiting for negative feedback to roll in. The company held a virtual session on their forums in which they solicited feedback concerning the new OnePlus 6. Those comments helped the company generate a list of items to be included in the next device update. The addition of these items to their Q&A page is part of an effort to be transparent on how the company will respond to the issues.

The items that OnePlus plans to address include:

  • removal of three dots that show up in the status bar;
  • an option to display battery percentage in the status bar;
  • adding in the Scheduled DND feature;
  • a fix for low volume for sound notifications and in-call volume;
  • absence of a network when using IDEA as a non-data card;
  • loss of in-call sound when switching to the speaker and switching back to the earpiece does not fix the issue.

Along with these items to be addressed, OnePlus says they are aware of problems with the autofocus for the rear camera. That one must be a bit more difficult to address as OnePlus says the fix will take “upcoming updates” to fully correct.
