Dark Mode Quick Settings toggle coming to OxygenOS, plus other tweaks planned

As part of its monthly Q&A (or FAQ — the company calls it both), OnePlus has just revealed a handful of smaller but still much-appreciated tweaks we can look forward to in its OxygenOS software. In addition to finally getting the Dark Mode toggle we've been clamoring for, we can also look forward to multitasking interface tweaks, lower volume settings, and other minor launcher fixes — though each change is tied to its own separate schedule.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro update improves camera 'dirt detection,' no black crush fix yet

While otherwise outstanding, OnePlus’s latest flagship pair was shipped with some software bugs and display-related issues, as pointed out in our reviews. The company has so far fixed a few of those initial hiccups via a couple of pre- and post-release updates. While we're still waiting on a few fixes, a new OxygenOS update is rolling out to both the 8 and 8 Pro, bringing along a handful of general fixes and improvements — though the so-called "black crush" screen problem remains as-is.

First OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro ROMs are available for download

The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are the latest flagships to hit the market, and even though we generally like them, there are some downsides to both of them. While OP can't do much about hardware characteristics like curved edges or crushed blacks, some things can be fixed in software. As such, the phones have already received an update to Oxygen OS 10.5.4 ahead of sales starting April 29, and now that ROM is also available for download on OP's website.

OnePlus still makes using Android 10's dark mode needlessly annoying

Ever since the company's short-lived relationship with Cyanogen, Inc. collapsed, OnePlus has shipped a custom build of Android called OxygenOS on its phones. It's generally regarded as one of the best manufacturer skins, since it adds useful features on top of stock Android, while not modifying the core Android experience (which can sometimes break apps).
