One plus has been making really great high end flagship phones for a much convenient price. To give you an idea, you get almost same specs as a samsung galaxy s7 edge at half the price. The two phones were already know for their great performance and customization abilities of the oxygen OS. All that just got better! Yes! Android Nougat 7.1.1 has finally started to roll out. It is an OTA update. If you have still not received the update, you might get it within a few weeks. The change log is not that big this time as compared to the last update but there are some major fixes.
The first and foremost thing to look with this update is the android upgrade to 7.1.1. One plus 3 and 3T are amongst the very first phones to get the latest android 7.1.1 update. The OS is more stable and more battery efficient. All those upgrades clubbed with the Oxygen os makes the phone buttery smooth.
If you don’t know what EIS is, then EIS stands for Electronic Image Stabilization. It is a feature of the camera that helps with better stabilized video shooting experience. Although, the phone has Optical Image Stabilization, the EIS 2.0 introduced along with the Nougat 7.1.1 update does a really great job. Video shooting experience has become so much better on the phones now. Pans shot on the phone after the update look simply amazing. This was much needed in the phone. Now you have a super stabilized 4k camera in your pocket. Read Everything You Need To Know About New MacBook Pro with the ‘Touch Bar’
Better battery life
I was looking forward some battery improvements from one plus in the upcoming update and I’ll tell you, they did a great job at pleasing their audience once again. The battery life has become s much better on the phone. It hardly lasted 8 hours earlier and now it lasts around 15 hours on a full charge. This extended battery life is a result of more aggressive dose feature of the OS.
This feature was made available by Xiaomi on there phones much earlier but we got it now, anyways. You can now click extended screenshots which means you can scroll down to click a full page screenshot of a long page at once. This comes in handy quite a lot of times. A nice addition to the great things in the phone.
Updated security patch
One plus kept in mind the security of it’s users and their private data. You get the latest security patch update with this upgrade. This upgrade patch is from 1st march 2017 which is the latest one released by google.
Bluetooth and wifi connectivity improved
The change log mentions that the wifi and bluetooth connectivities have been improved. Bluetooth pairing to my speakers was a little faster than before. I tried it with some other bluetooth devices and I gotta say that there are improvements with it. Talking about wifi, I did see some updates there as well.
