OnePlus is rolling out a new OxygenOS update for the OnePlus 8 Pro to "fix" the privacy issues with the phone's color filter camera. The OxygenOS 10.5.10 update also brings battery life improvements and the June 2020 Android security patch.
India has a wide variety of great phones at all price points. Whether you're looking for a flagship with the latest hardware and great cameras, or a budget phone that's great for day-to-day use, these are the best Android phones you can buy in India.
In 2020, OnePlus brought its best cameras yet to the 8 series of phones. With multiple lens options and improved software, the cameras were finally able to stand on their own. However, since there's always room for improvement, a new port for the Google Camera app does just that for the OnePlus 8 line-up of phones.
Reading Mode is a fantastic utility that's baked into OxygenOS. It turns the screen of your OnePlus 8 monochrome, making it easier to read long-form content on your phone. Here's how to set it up on your OnePlus 8.
If you're looking for an Android flagship in India, the OnePlus 8 Pro should be at the top of your list. With the latest internals, a gorgeous design, clean software, all-day battery life with 30W wired and wireless charging, the OnePlus 8 has it all.
Full screen gestures make it easy to operate your phone no matter what hand you're holding it in, but it can be confusing if you're used to Android's traditional three-button navigation. Thankfully, navigating a phone running Oxygen OS doesn't have to be complicated.
OnePlus has confirmed that it will disable the color filter camera on the OnePlus 8 Pro at launch in India after it was revealed that the camera can see through thin layers of plastic and clothing. The camera will be enabled in a future OTA update that will fix the issue.
Lack of consistent availability makes it really hard to recommend the OnePlus 8 Pro — sure it's a great phone, but it's not so great when you can't just buy it at the moment you decide it's the one for you.
The Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8 both have triple camera arrays, but Samsung and OnePlus went in different directions for the individual lenses in those systems. Both phones take great photos, but in the end one is more well-rounded and versatile than the other.
The launch of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro smartphones saw many firsts for the company, including 120Hz screens, wireless charging, and official IP certification. But perhaps one of the biggest features of the new phones is their tie-in to Alexa and the Amazon ecosystem.
