The build of OxygenOS that shipped on the OnePlus 2 is good, but it's still very light on features compared to Cyanogen OS. The OTA update announced today should improve things a bit, though. There are some changes to the camera, display, and the usual smattering of bug fixes.

Here's the changelog posted on the OnePlus forums.

  • 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.

The manual camera mode is a long time coming. The OnePlus 2's camera performance is much better than the OnePlus One, but it has very few options. Now you'll be able to get a bit more advanced, and it supports RAW capture in third-party apps (presumably via the camera2 API). The color balance slider is a nice touch too, although there's nothing off about the default colors to my eye. Still, if you want them cooler or warmer, you can do that now.

The OTA is hitting a small number of users today to make sure nothing explodes. If all goes well, the full rollout will start tomorrow.
