Factory image for OnePlus 7 Pro's Android 10 update now available

Although OnePlus did right by its users by quickly rolling out Android 10 for the OnePlus 7 Pro just 18 days after Google's own rollout of Android 10 to its Pixel devices, it was a messy and bug-ridden update that was clearly rushed. Fortunately, the company made amends by releasing a second update almost a month later that addressed many of the issues. OnePlus seems to feel confident about its update because now, the latest build of Oxygen OS is finally available for direct download from the company's website.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is the company's latest foray into flagship territory. As usual, the phone undercuts its competitors with high specs for a relatively low price (if we only compare the MSRP and keep the generally rising costs of smartphones in mind, that is), all while coming with the clean and fast software we've come to love the manufacturer for.

OnePlus phones are discarding Android's battery optimization whitelist, a problem as more apps update to target Oreo

Usually, OnePlus is praised for its Oxygen OS software, which offers a light-touch, near-stock experience — at least, visually.

Right now one of the most frustrating parts of OnePlus ownership for many is the company's aggressive battery optimization settings, which can kill apps you may want to be kept open.

[Update: Downloads available] Oxygen OS 5.0.3 for OnePlus 3/3T brings Face Unlock, several launcher changes, and more

With the 5T, OnePlus introduced its own version of face unlock, aptly named 'Face Unlock." Thanks to its sheer speed, it quickly became a hit. Owners of older OnePlus devices begged for it to be added to their phones, and days later, it showed up on the OnePlus 5 with the latest Oxygen OS beta. The feature then made its way to the OnePlus 3 and 3T via the beta track, and then to the OnePlus 5's stable track.
