Amazon Will Sell The OnePlus One (With Invites) In India Starting In December

The OnePlus One isn't quite the hot item it used to be, and if there are any prospective buyers in India, they might have been swayed by the handful of flagship phones that have launched from more conventional manufacturers in the months since the device's release. Even so, if you want a One on the subcontinent, you won't have too much longer to wait. Maybe. According to this promotional page and some information from the OnePlus forum, Amazon will start selling the One in December.

OnePlus One's Touchscreen Issues Are Fixed With Latest Firmware (For Real This Time) Currently In Testing, Expected In Next OTA

Since launch, some OnePlus One owners have encountered issues with the phone's touchscreen. The complaints center around the display being unresponsive, causing it to miss certain touches and provide a generally frustrating typing experience. Sometimes it resulted in taps while dragging or swiping.

Now a firmware upgrade is in testing that takes care of this problem entirely. It's expected to go out to users soon in an upcoming over-the-air update.

If you've been waiting patiently to get your hands on the OnePlus One, or even if you haven't been waiting patiently at all, the "flagship killer" is going on sale in a slightly more conventional way later this morning. OnePlus is scheduled to open its pre-order system at 11AM Eastern, 8AM Pacific US time, when customers will actually be able to pay for a phone immediately in the expectation of actually getting it at some point.

OnePlus One Pre-Orders Will Be Available Starting October 27th, Discounted Accessories Thrown In For Good Measure

In the Android Police review of the OnePlus One, we called it "the best flagship you can't buy."

Pre-orders will be available via OnePlus.net starting on Monday, October 27th at 15:00 GMT (8 AM Eastern time).

Here's An Easy Fix For A OnePlus One Sudden Death Bug That Results In Neverending Boot Loops

The OnePlus One has had its share of bugs, but there has been one issue that effectively breaks the phone without the owner being even accidentally at fault. One minute you're swiping through the app drawer looking at the best way to kill time for a couple of minutes, the next you're hit with a spontaneous reboot and staring at a phone that boot loops indefinitely, leaving you with a bricked device.

The problem is suspected to stem from the "persist" partition getting corrupted during the reboot, even though CyanogenMod doesn't use this particular location.

OnePlus One XNPH38R OTA Finally Fixes The Phone's Touchscreen Issue, Adds RAW Capture, Video Recording Pause, And More - Here's The Zip For Manual Flashing

I'm quite cynical about OnePlus as a company, but I have to admit that I've heard a lot of praise for their phone from everyone who has tried it despite its many bugs and issues. However, there's one less reason for everyone to complain now, since the XNPH38R OTA update has started rolling out in stages according to an announcement on the OnePlus Forums.

After XNPH33R, which fixed many of the phone's issues in August, XNPH38R brings a slew of new features and most importantly, solves the One's glaring touchscreen problem. Artem has been testing out this fix and has noticed better speeds while typing and improved responsiveness with multitouch.

[Never Settle] OnePlus Cancels Promised StyleSwap Covers For The One Due To Manufacturing Issues

OnePlus listed several features as notable when it announced the One in an unnecessarily drawn out fashion earlier this year. One of those items was the selection of StyleSwap covers. The battery in the OnePlus is non-removable, but the back was designed to be replaced with other finishes and materials. However, manufacturing issues have caused the company to cancel the StyleSwap covers completely after a long delay. OnePlus explains on its forums that this isn't settling—no, this is just "complicated decisions."
