Owners of the OnePlus 3 have been through a bit of a roller coaster ever since the device was announced. It started with the inclusion of 6GB of RAM, the first for a smartphone, then were met with dismay after learning the device never took full advantage of the RAM capabilities. Then, after much scrutiny, OnePlus began rolling out an update that fixed the RAM issues that plagued devices, but even that was met with problems as the software update had to be halted due to an unknown bug.

Since then, things have been mostly quiet for OnePlus and owners of the OnePlus 3, until today. The company has started rolling out the latest update to OxygenOS, bringing devices up to version 3.2.2.

Here’s what’s new in this update:

  • Improved notification management in doze
  • Addressed alert slider/silent mode issue
  • Disabled fingerprint sensor while in pocket
  • Added NFC toggle in quick settings
  • Improved noise cancellation in video recording
  • Updated 4K video recording codec
  • Added latest security patches and various optimizations

There is nothing major in this update, but one question to be asked is whether OnePlus has finally fixed the issue with the alert slider. The issue was that the only way to change your sound profiles was with the alert slider, which made it impossible to use Android’s automatic Do Not Disturb schedules. There isn’t any information as to what OnePlus has changed within OxygenOS 3.2.2 in regards to the alert slider, but we’ll be sure to find out in the coming days.

OxygenOS 3.2.2 will be rolling out to all OnePlus 3 owners over the next week or so, as this is a staged roll out. Drop us a line and let us know whether you’ve received the update and what changes you are able to find once it’s hit your device.
