OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS 10.5.5 update brings partial fix for 'green-tint' screen issue, plus touchscreen sensitivity tweaks

As OnePlus promised just days ago, yet more updates for its latest pair of phones are now rolling out. Unlike the last couple of pre-release updates, which had near-identical changelogs, this one delivers a handful of much-appreciated fixes, including some un-named "display effect" optimizations and camera improvements.

While it was possible to brush off some journalists' issues to incorrect handling because they peeled off the non-removable screen protector, other people used the device as intended and still had their screens going to Nirvana. The team of iFixit investigated and found some structural problems inherent to the phone's design that might end up being very hard to fix for Samsung.

Weekend poll: Has your opinion of Google's Pixel 2 XL changed?

It's been a turbulent couple of weeks for Google's latest pair of phones. The most significant point of contention has been the screen on the Pixel 2 XL, which has been reported to have issues ranging from an uneven "grainy" appearance, color-calibration woes, off-angle blue-shifts, to problems as significant as thick bands of darkness or bright color.
