OnePlus 6/6T and 7/7T series pick up May patch and a lot more with their latest OxygenOS updates

OnePlus has lately stepped up its software-update game following a brief setback late last year. The company’s been taking a proactive approach to release timely major — as well as incremental — updates even to some of its oldest phones, and the newer 7 and 7T lineup have also been consistently receiving their fair share of attention in the form of performance improvements and general optimizations. Keeping up with that spirit, over the past couple of days OnePlus has pushed a buttload of feature and security updates across its range going back to 2018 — including the 6/6T, along with the 7 and 7T series.

The OnePlus 8 is a big upgrade over the OnePlus 6 and 6T, but is it worth the cost?

With the OnePlus 8, the company has put together a compelling phone that has a very calculated mix of features and compromises to keep its price tag relatively reasonable. The emerging Chinese brand that once started off in the mid-tier segment is now sailing in premium waters — a perfect recipe for leaving one’s existing customers in dilemma. The OnePlus 6 and 6T, released in 2018, are nearing their two-year cycles, and many of their owners were eyeing the 8 as a fitting replacement. But the substantially higher starting price of the non-Pro 2020 model has somewhat diluted the value-for-money element, posing a tough question for those due for an upgrade: Is the OnePlus 8 even worth upgrading to?

LineageOS is the most-used custom Android ROM around, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for others.

LineageOS ROM releases first builds based on Android 10 (Update: Builds are back)

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM in existence, and the project prides itself on bringing newer versions of Android to unsupported devices. However, Lineage has been a bit slow to roll out a version based on Android 10 ⁠— the Pie-based ROM was already available by this time last year. Thankfully, the next major version of LineageOS seems to be just around the corner.
