Software support for Android smartphones is always a question mark with most brands but thankfully, the case with OnePlus devices is quite different. Despite being older series smartphones, the brand is prioritizing updates for both OnePlus 5 and 5T equally as the latest 6. Further, we are now getting to see updates pop up each month just as we see on Google Pixel smartphones. These updates, as a whole, don’t carry major changes but the ones they carry, do make a big difference. Flash OxygenOS 5.1.4 July 2018 build on your OnePlus 5 or 5T by downloading ZIP file from ahead and by using stock recovery.
The main principle behind keeping any Android skin / overlay simple is faster updates. As OxygenOS mostly relies on vanilla Android, the brand is now able to keep up with new monthly software builds which would’ve been difficult if they would’ve opted to make the skin heavy.
