OnePlus 7 Pro: Common Problems and Solutions
Remember, don’t let that list scare you. You might only face one or two of those problems or none at all. The phone runs perfectly for most users, plus OnePlus is very quick when it comes to software updates. Either way, here’s how to fix many of those issues.
Fix OnePlus 7 Pro WiFi Problems
Another thing we see with every phone release is complaints about WiFi, WiFi drops, or WiFi speed. We saw similar issues on the OnePlus 6 and 6T, and they’re easy to fix usually. If you’re having WiFi problems try turning your WiFi off and then back on. It’s also a good idea to power down your WiFi router at home for a minute, or even unplug it for 5 minutes before turning it back on. Another option is to head to Settings > WiFi and forget your wireless network. Then search again and reconnect, put in the password, and try it again. This completely resets the connection between your phone and WiFi and gives it a fresh start.As far as WiFi calling problems OnePlus is aware of them and working on a solution.
Fix OnePlus 7 Pro Bluetooth Problems
Bluetooth should be more stable than ever before on Android 9 Pie and your OnePlus 7 Pro. That said, we are seeing a few complaints about it from people trying to use it in a car, truck, or with Android Auto.The biggest complaint is Bluetooth in cars, where the phone simply won’t connect. Some owners see it, but the phone is greyed out on the car infotainment system. If so, turn off HD calling in settings, as a few users claim that fixed the problem. Another idea is to simply reboot your device, or restart your car and stereo. Bluetooth is always a little tricky, so try to forget all pairings and start over and see if it goes away.Basically, unpair everything and start over. Whether that’s your car, a speaker, or some headphones. We also recommend checking for updates to your car stereo, especially if you use something like a Pioneer.
Fix OnePlus 7 Pro Camera Problems
This year OnePlus really stepped up its game for the cameras, front and back, but we’re still seeing some complaints. Mainly about the overall quality or speed of the auto-focus, two areas which can and will improve over time. So far we’re seeing most people simply complain that the auto-focus is slow, especially in dark or poor lighting. This makes sense, as the camera can’t see anything to focus on. With the main camera, wide-angle, and a telephoto zoom, you have plenty of options to take great photos.We’re not seeing any major “problems” at least not yet, but will keep an eye out for more information. For now, expect a few quick software updates to improve the camera situation, including a day-one update out of the box that makes it substantially better.
These are the only problems that some users are complaining about but if some other major problem arises in OnePlus 7 Pro. We’ll immediately update this guide and let you know about it.
