OnePlus team including Carl Pei hosts 6T AMA - here are the best answers

A major strength of OnePlus since its inception has been its willingness to engage with its community of users and, by this point, fans.

OnePlus confirms ‘OnePlus 6’ name for next phone, opens forum for it

By all appearances, OnePlus' repeated presence in the news seems to indicate that it is gearing up to launch its next phone. The company has just added a bit more fuel to the fire, too, with a Twitter teaser telling us all to "6et ready," while simultaneously opening the gates to the new OnePlus 6 forum. We were already reasonably sure before, but this probably confirms the "OnePlus 6" name.

Xiaomi Customers Are Frustrated By The Manufacturer's Convoluted (And Possibly Biased) Bootloader Unlock Program

Xiaomi Customers Are Frustrated By The Manufacturer's Convoluted (And Possibly Biased) Bootloader Unlock Program

Any grizzled veteran of the aftermarket Android community (well, grizzled, in the sense that said community has been around for less than a decade) knows that users complaining about bootloaders is nothing new. Locked phone bootloaders with no user-accessible unlock option have become less of a contentious issue of late, now that customers on Neolithic carriers like AT&T and Verizon have more hardware options. But frustration is brewing in the growing and dedicated fanbase of Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi.

The XDA-Developers blog reports that Xiaomi has added locked bootloaders to several of its phones, including the Redmi Note Pro, Mi 4c, and Mi Note Pro, some of which are getting new bootloaders installed with the latest firmware.

Steam For Android Version 2.1 Adds Community Market, Trading, Game Hubs, Discussions, And More

Steam is the #1 gaming market for PCs, and the desktop client is quite robust (and big enough that performance-minded gamers complain about its RAM and processor footprint). The official mobile version of Steam has been slowly catching up to the desktop in terms of features, and today's update to version 2.1 is the biggest that's come in a long time. A laundry list of tools from the desktop and web versions of Steam are now available in the Android app, no pop-out required.

Some Users Aren't Seeing Android Phones In Android Device Manager - Google's Working On It

Some Users Aren't Seeing Android Phones In Android Device Manager - Google's Working On It

Android Device Manager is Google's rather handy package of web and mobile software that allows you to remotely locate, ring, or lock your phone or tablet. Of course, it's not especially useful if it can't actually interact with your device. Most of the time errors are because a phone can't be reached via data, or because permission has been reset in the ADM app itself. But a small group of users are having trouble with getting ADM to recognize their devices at all.

In a detailed post on Google's Nexus Help Forum, Nexus 5 owner Sandra Buensalida recounted her frustration when the Android Device Manager wouldn't recognize her phone after trying it out on several different network and hardware configurations, and applying every possible troubleshooting solution she could find.

OnePlus Responds To Accusations Of Selling Refurbished Phones As New (Hint: They Didn't Do That)

OnePlus Responds To Accusations Of Selling Refurbished Phones As New (Hint: They Didn't Do That)

As a "new" company that caters almost exclusively to technology enthusiasts, OnePlus has been under the microscope ever since it announced its One flagship phone... with no small amount of criticism coming from this very website. But a string of recent posts on the official OnePlus forums prompted a response from the company's social team. Basically, customers accused OnePlus of shipping refurbished One phones and claiming they were new, a practice that isn't unheard of from consumer goods manufacturers and retailers of all sizes.
