Live on the bleeding by joining the Closed Beta program for your OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro

Live on the bleeding by joining the Closed Beta program for your OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro

If you're a OnePlus user, you might be aware of two release channels. There's the stable one, where releases meant for the general public go, and the Open Betas, where you can have a taste of new releases earlier than usual and help spot bugs before one actually hits the stable branch. But in addition to those there's also a Closed Beta program — a more exclusive group that gets bleeding-edge releases before anyone else does. Sound good? Well, if you have a OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro, then OnePlus wants you to join.

OnePlus plans to add an option in OxygenOS 12 to disable throttling

OnePlus plans to add an option in OxygenOS 12 to disable throttling

Some of you may remember as far back as two weeks ago when OnePlus was caught throttling the performance of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro based on the app that was currently running, altering performance pretty drastically. One benchmarking application even considered the practice "benchmark manipulation." But OnePlus tells us it's heard the complaints, and it plans to address them with a new option in an upcoming OxygenOS 12 update, letting customers choose whether to enable or disable this "optimized mode."

Your OnePlus 9 or OnePlus 9 Pro is getting some fresh new bloatware

OnePlus isn't as quick on its feet as it used to be with respect to updates. The July security patch is only now arriving for the company's flagship phones — the OnePlus 9 and the 9 Pro —  as we edge closer to the end of the month. The software update also sneakily installs an app that you most definitely won't need.

OnePlus defends its app-throttling on the 9 Pro, Snapdragon 888 'overkill in certain scenarios'

OnePlus defends its app-throttling on the 9 Pro, Snapdragon 888 'overkill in certain scenarios'

Following the news that OnePlus was throttling the performance of 9-Series phones, the company has taken to its forum with a more detailed response, explaining in greater detail the logic behind its actions. In short, OnePlus claims that modern chipsets are "overkill," and there's no need to run at full power for simple tasks like scrolling on a webpage or social media. So, the company throttles performance to improve power consumption and heat dissipation under the argument that it extensively tests these changes for negative effects.

OnePlus 9 long-term review: One step forward...

OnePlus 9 long-term review: One step forward...

There was a time not that long ago that OnePlus phones were a guaranteed excellent value. That's no longer the case as the company has increasingly focused on flagship devices and carrier partnerships, pushing the cost of some devices over $1,000. Still, that doesn't mean OnePlus is incapable of delivering a good value any more. The new OnePlus 9 is only $729, which is more than two Benjamins less than the OnePlus 9 Pro. It's even cheaper than the OnePlus 8T it replaces, which is a welcome reversal of trends.

Grab a OnePlus 9 for the price it probably should've been at launch

OnePlus devices aren't quite the flagship killers they used to be. Sure, its phones are stacked with the best specs money can buy today, but with prices now reaching into four digits, it's not the budget-friendly company it once was. If you've patiently waited for a sale on its newest phones, you're in luck. The 128GB OnePlus 9 is on sale today at several stores across the web for just $649, a much more affordable price than its initial launch.

How to fix your OnePlus phone that's started bootlooping after installing its latest update

How to fix your OnePlus phone that's started bootlooping after installing its latest update

OnePlus has become notorious for shipping either half-baked updates or ones that cause devices to bootloop or worse. The Android 12 developer preview for the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro was pulled back after it bricked devices. While the unstable nature of developer software dilutes the culpability to an extent, it's surely not acceptable when a stable OTA causes the same problem. Unfortunately, the stable OxygenOS 11.2.6.6 update for the OnePlus 9 Pro has lead to similar issues for some people.
