OnePlus misses promised OxygenOS release date of March 27

97

Helen from the OnePlus team took to their official forum to announce that OxygenOS has been delayed and will not be available today, as previously promised.

The reasoning behind this delay? GMS certification. They state that the ROM is fully functional and already a number of OnePlus employees in the office are running OxygenOS, but this means little to consumers who are still waiting for not only the new ROM, but CyanogenMod 12s too. For now, we're all waiting for Google to give the green light on OnePlus' custom ROM.

Tips for taking good panorama shots on Android

16
Panorama

A wide, sweeping shot can do wonders for perspective. But panoramas also can take a little practice. Here are a few tips.

A big part of the fun that is Android photography is being able to more than your typical point-and-shoot camera. It's a camera lens strapped to a computer, after all. And one of the easiest (and coolest) shots to shot is a panorama.

For the uninitiated (we know you're out there — it's OK), a panorama really is a series of images stitched together to form a single wide-angle shot. It's generally found as an option in your camera application, and you take a panorama by moving your phone so that it's able to capture much more than just a single field of view. Panoramas are fun, but they can take a little bit of practice.

Here are a few tips for getting the best panorama shots you can.

Five things you need to know about your new Chromebook

108
Chromebook

Getting started with a new Chromebook? Here's where to begin.

So you just got a new Chromebook? Awesome! They make for a great little laptop, and are a favorite of many of us here at Android Central. We use them both for work and play (I'm writing this on one) because they are ultra-portable, easy to use, and make for a great portal to everything the web has to offer.

But there are a few things you'll need to know while you're getting started. A Chromebook is not your regular laptop, and it's pretty different from that Windows-powered ThinkPad you may be using at work.

We've assembled five things you need to understand about your new Chromebook so that you have a better handle on what it can do, how to do it, and why you'll love it!
