Analytics data is important for any software project. The data can help developers figure out what features people use, what bugs need to be fixed, and what/where the target market is. OnePlus, in its never-ending mission to make itself the worst Android phone manufacturer on the planet, has been discovered collecting massive amounts of analytics data from phone owners. The collected data includes IMEI numbers, MAC addresses, mobile network names and IMSI prefixes, serial numbers, and more. Read More
For having the slogan, "Never settle," the OnePlus 2 has caused owners to settle for less quite often. The phone itself wasn't well-received, due to the lack of NFC connectivity and other problems. And despite initially promising Android 7.0 Nougat for the OP2, there have been no releases or further news, leaving owners annoyed to say the least. Read More
The OnePlus 3 and 3T were some of the best phones of last year, especially given their low prices. Both phones were updated to Nougat at the end of 2016, being among the first non-Google devices to receive the new version.

For a phone that was supposed to "kill" high-priced flagships, the OnePlus 2 seems to have taken its sweet old time in upgrading to the latest version of Android. Whether that has to do with a smaller development team over at OnePlus, or the idiosyncrasies of the company's custom "Oxygen OS" ROM, we couldn't say.
