    Could our phones be rigged like the iPhone so it gets laggier and the battery gets worse over time? In order to make us buy the new devices? They have been accused of shady practices in the past, my cousin bought the oneplus 2 and judging by its performance now, and my oneplus 3 performance, it sure seems so. we have tried everything, factory reset, clear cache. it lags at where it shouldn't, app switching, webpage scrolling, switching the alert slider, sometimes light gaming too. the only thing haven't tried is flashing custom ROM. maybe it's just us, who knows.

    Have you tried a factory data reset? I do it after every OS update and my OP3 is as fast as always, apps trend to get heavier and more complex over time, that causes bugs and lag in low specs phones.

    My OP3T runs like a dream. Like any good car, if you don't look after it, it won't look after you. Have my 3T ten months now and every day I sit down to breakfast and restart the 3T and when I get home from work I plug in the charger and restart it, and once a week I'll turn it off for ten to fifteen mins.

    Just my opinion, don't restart your phone twice a day.
    Once a week is more than enough.

    I go into recovery menu to clear the cache, like once a week. Seven Months, running like a charm.

    Clearing the cache it's important too, once a fortnight for me. It's also possible an app he has downloaded is causing all his problems. But if his problems persist, a full reset would be the only cure

    yeah, it's all a great conspiracy to check your IQ level....those that don't have what it takes end up with a laggy phone. it ain't rocket science.

    Your dead right about a conspiracy, but it only applies to some other manufacturers who push out an update just before the release of something bigger. "I" think you know who "I"m talking about... iPhone.
    Did you know there's a word in the English dictionary begins with the letter "I" too... idiot!!

    Yes, they are rigged exactly like the iPhone. Meaning, they're not.

    Whatever about rigging. I don't agree with OnePlus strategy of bringing out a device then abandoning it after the launch of a newer device. The 3T is an awesome device and they should keep selling it for at least another year.
    You can still get an older iPhone six on contact here, but only for ******** the 3T is gone
