Five OxygenOS features we hope to see in stock Android someday

Although we usually think it's pretty great these days, stock Android still isn't perfect, and there are plenty of great, useful, and convenient features that third parties like OnePlus have come up with. The only bad thing about them is the fact that not everyone using an Android gets to use them — they're exclusive to OnePlus devices. So we'd like to see a few of these useful OxygenOS features make their way over to stock.

OnePlus unveils Optimized Charging feature designed to protect your battery

It's an unfortunate reality that our phones too often outlive the batteries that power them. While a recently purchased phone may easily last over a day on a single charge, after a few years the battery will degrade in its capacity resulting in far less stellar battery performance. The problem is so prevalent that Apple has even famously underclocked some of its devices because the batteries could no longer power the phone's components consistently. Some phone manufacturers have attempted to reduce this degradation by implementing software solutions to prevent their phones from remaining at 100% battery for extended periods of time.

OnePlus 7 Pro on T-Mobile finally gets its Android 10 update

The unlocked OnePlus 7 Pro variant got Android 10 in September, while T-Mobile units have been stuck with Pie and the September security patch. After having to wait for months, those with a carrier-locked handset are in for a treat, as they've finally started receiving stable Android 10. Apart from all the Android 10 goodies, the update also brings a relatively newer security patch.

OnePlus 7T Pro gets better camera and November patches with OxygenOS 10.0.5 update

Updates aren't always an inevitability, but they seem to be for OnePlus phones — at least, some of them. The OnePlus 7T Pro is next up to bat, picking up an update to OxygenOS that brings it to version 10.0.5 and apparent changelog-parity with the smaller OnePlus 7T. That means it gets November 2019 security patches, improved photo quality, and a handful of other optimizations and fixes.

Security updates on the OnePlus 6 and 6T are an utter mess right now

OnePlus often prides itself on the solid software support it extends to its relatively small smartphone lineup, and rightly so. Handsets as old as the OnePlus 5 (the one with a 16:9 display, remember?) are confirmed to get Android 10, while this year’s 7 series was updated months ago. Even the OnePlus 7T came out running Android 10 in the same month Pixels got their stable builds. Two phones that couldn’t be a part of this flattering tale are last year’s OnePlus 6 and 6T that have been stuck on Android Pie while OnePlus is struggling to put their Android 10 packages together.

OnePlus 7T gets camera tweaks and other fixes with OxygenOS 10.0.3 update

The OnePlus 7T went official last Thursday amid much fanfare. Our very own Ryne Hager's first impressions of the mid-tier flagship were positive, and he particularly liked the super macro mode and the software experience that’s now based on Android 10. OnePlus isn't resting on its laurels, though, and is already rolling out the OxygenOS 10.0.3 update to the handset with a handful of system and camera improvements.

Here's how to update the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro to Android 10 right now

Not even a week following the release of Android 10 Beta 2 for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro, the official stable version of Android 10, branded as OxygenOS 10.0, is now rolling out to these devices. However, the rollout is a slow one, and if you're too impatient to wait for OnePlus' servers to deem you worthy of the update, you can cut to the front of the line fairly easily.
