People who have received a OnePlus One through one means or another are now receiving an over-the-air software update that addresses a charging issue affecting the device. Sometimes the phone would think it's plugged into USB when it's actually plugged into AC power and, as a result, charge only half as fast, if not slower. The handset would display Charging (USB) instead of Charging (AC). This information is available in the Status screen under settings, which is visible at the top of the third screenshot below.

Following the update, things seem to work just fine. This is good, because considering the OnePlus One's sizable 3100mAh battery, no one wants to sit around for hours waiting for that bad boy to charge.

    It's nice to see that the three people who own a One Plus One got an update.

          • nwd1911

            Yep, tough to see it went out for delivery last night. I'll be waiting by the mailbox tomorrow. Enjoy yours!

          • jonathan3579

            Likewise! Hopefully we don't get yellow tint models.

            I hate to ask this, particularly here, but could you spare an invite? :-) Thanks

          • nwd1911

            I haven't received any information on invites being available for me to give out otherwise I'm happy to share.

          • KlausWillSeeYouNow

            Thanks so much! I appreciate it. If you do find out something, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    • nguser

      I'd say 10 at least.

      • GeeKLoRD

        While 10,000 are waiting for an invite for the invite to get an invitation to get the One Plus One

        • nguser

          Nah, it's not so complicated.

      • master94

        Are you the use nguser from the forums?

        • nguser

  • Corey Watford

    Wow, can't wait to update my invisible phone

  • Evris K.

    It's always nice supporting the invisible phone. I hope they could fix the invisibility issue with an OTA.

  • Thomas

    Only device to disobey quantum mechanics by being gone whether observed or not.

  • flosserelli

    Great news for the 25 people that actually have one.

  • Romario Maxwell

    I remember this bug happening on my S4 GT-I9500 in the past. Annoying as hell. Haven't seen it in a while now though.

  • daredevildan

    I just updated my imaginary phone to android 7.0. Where's my article?

  • Nicholas Polydor

    CyanogenMod's famously swift updates seem to be slowing for the 'S' stable release: 4.4.4 has now been out for a fortnight yet this latest XNPH25R build is still 4.4.2. However, the GPe devices and the Motorola 'Moto' have already been updated. Food for thought...

    • silver_arrow

      They addressed updates and as this is not custom firmware they have to test it themselves (about one week) and get Google certification which takes at minimum 2 weeks. Major OEM's have had the code for a while and are able to crank out the updates for when it officially drops.

    • Anaron

      It's slowed down by QA/QC.

    • Jerry Rich

      A fortnight?

      • Tyler Cooke

        Two weeks.

    • Justin Case

      Most of the fixes introduced in 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 were already back ported to the OnePlus. You are missing some numbers, thats pretty much it.

  • Jesús Cuenca

    - Who cares?
    -The ones who have it!
    - See! no one cares.

  • alamarco

    Love all the jealous comments from people who don't own the phone.

    • dude

      Not jealous, don't want it. Even if I would I would go for the Oppo which have better support and features. OPO is advertise as a low cost phone after all, I don't think just because you gets an invites make you more special. In a way I think it's back firing,

      • Anaron

        It may be cheap in comparison to other high-end smartphones but I assure you, it isn't a 'cheap' device. It feels and looks better than my friend's Galaxy S4 which used to be one of Samsung's flagship devices.

  • black

    So like, is anyone taking this phone seriously?

    • Alberto Blasi

      I do. Mine's battery is still at 91% after 7hrs, couldn't be happier about this phone.

    • dude

      Not anymore, there is some controversies in their forum with how they're dealing with hardware issues and warranty. But I'm not going to jump to conclusion from just a few unhappy people, although I am more and more skeptical about their quality and support. Anyway, I was never going to buy the phone due to the size.

      • black

        Yes. With Samsung, etc, you know they have you back when you buy a defective phone. With One Plus, it's like buying from a black market.

    • Preston To

      By far the best phone in my experience. The combination of the stop end hardware, fast and customizable software and killer price point make it a no brainer for me!

  • renz

    hype phone...

  • Jerry Rich

    So based on this company's performance so far, I wonder how their customer support is going to be. What happens if you need some warranty work. Are you going to need an invite to send it to some P.O. box somewhere in China. Good Luck. Think this whole thing through before you buy, people.

  • David_smith

    Android police officers :) could you please pass this info to paranoid android team so they can fix their ROM as well. Their ROM behaves the same. If I tell them those big headed boys will ignore as they always do :)

  • dmo580

    I don't believe this is correct. I was on XNPH22R and the phone easily took in 1A or more depending on the charger. This seemed more like a software issue where the OS would report USB and not AC charging regardless of the input current.

  • Dervis Dag

    I have just complained about slow charging issue on my nexus 5 with paranoid android ROM on it and the dev says he is complaining about people complaining. And others says the ROM is free so no one should complain about anything how funny :)

  • Jousa11

    Woo :-D except it does not flash with TWRP so you have to strip it and recompile :D That SUCKS

  • Eric

    Here in Hong Kong you can buy one plus one so easy on Streets.

  • Ben

    I received the software update but it was not able to install. Can anyone help?
