OnePlus 5 now available in Soft Gold for a limited time

If you're the sort that strives for that extra bit of tasteful ostentation, OnePlus' two original colors might not have made the cut. Gray and black are a bit bland, after all. As of today, those that match their metals (or those who intentionally don't) have another choice when it comes to the OnePlus 5. It can now be purchased in Soft Gold with a white face.

The OnePlus 5's new 4K EIS is incredible

If you can remember as far back as yesterday, you might recall that OnePlus rolled out OxygenOS v4.5.8, an update that was mostly identical to but slightly less buggy than the preceding 4.5.7. The headlining feature in both versions was a new EIS (electronic image stabilization) feature for 4K recording, a detail that was considered a significant omission by some reviewers. Fortunately for OnePlus 5 users everywhere, the EIS looks to be pretty fantastic.

[Update: Replaced by 4.5.8] OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 4.5.7 update brings stabilization to 4K video and a new system font

Right now a staged rollout is progressing for OxygenOS 4.5.7, which brings with it EIS for 4K recording (which looks amazing), as well as a handful of bug fixes, optimizations, security patch updates, and a new font.

New OnePlus 3/3T Open Beta adds parallel app support to run multiple instances of the same app

The OxygenOS Open Beta updates keep on rolling for the OnePlus 3 and 3T and this latest one brings a very interesting feature: parallel apps. If you're not familiar with the concept, this lets you run the same app in multiple profiles or instances. That might seem superfluous, but think of apps that only let you log in with one account like Facebook or WhatsApp when you might need multiple profiles, or maybe you want to have different settings for each instance of an app to test them out or for different purposes... who knows.

We've already covered App Cloner who does this, but the most famous in the category is Parallel Space.

Never settle: OnePlus keeps sending push notifications about ads and surveys to its devices

Advertisements have a time and a place, and the notification tray should be off limits. Several companies have shamefully used advertisement notifications before, including Samsung and HTC. OnePlus has had quite a few mishaps over the past few months, but that hasn't stopped the company from pushing ads and surveys to its own devices.

OnePlus Launcher shows up again on the Play Store

Many manufacturers have uploaded their system apps to the Play Store, in order to send out updates without the need for a full system update. Earlier this month, OnePlus published its custom launcher to the Play Store, and users could even sign up for a beta program to try out new features first. For some reason, the listing was removed shortly after it went live.
