The OnePlus 3 boasts hardware and features that are very respectable for its US$399 (about RM1,640) asking price, but it is not without any issue. Thankfully, OnePlus is aware of these issues, and it will be pushing out a “special OTA build” to address them.
Ever since the OnePlus 3 was made official, many early reviewers noticed that the device’s RAM management is too aggressive, which doesn’t take advantage of the generous 6GB RAM. Other than that, the OnePlus 3’s display also has some issues with colour accuracy as well.
To fix these issues, OnePlus will release an OTA made specifically for early review units; this update will only be released to the general public once the company has received some feedback on the fix, apparently. Below, you can see the difference the OTA brings, which makes it possible to enable sRGB Mode to address colour accuracy issues with the display. (Left is with sRGB Mode enabled, right is without.)
The other significant change the OTA brings is better RAM management. Apparently, despite having a very generous 6GB RAM, the OnePlus 3 will kill apps pretty aggressively; this is an attempt to improve the device’s battery life. Regardless, the new update should be able to take full advantage of the 6GB RAM, although this still remains to be seen.
The OnePlus 3 offers plenty value for money, and this update should make it an even better device. Then again, what matters most to us Malaysians right now is exactly when – or if – the device will be launched here. Rest assured, we will keep a close eye on the local availability of OnePlus’ latest smartphone.
