OnePlus 3 software updates are fixing things and breaking other things. But that's OK.
I've been witness to a maelstrom of frustration and invective over the weekend as OnePlus rolled out yet another fix for its OxygenOS software for the OnePlus 3.
OxygenOS version 3.2.4 began trickling out in small waves over the weekend, with promises to fix a few of the OnePlus 3's nagging issues — many of which were introduced in previous updates. That's a problem, sure: it's never ideal to replace one set of bugs with another. But the reality is that OnePlus, free from the need to submit its software to carriers, can and is doing the right thing by unilaterally releasing regular fixes — even as it continues to roll up Google's own security updates into separate releases.
