    The Imp , Dec 22, 2016 :
    I would like to thank
    @rarog for pinning this thread
    @SoniaB for giving me guidance and advice on how I should start this thread.
    Without them this thread wouldn't be possible. They will also help me in maintaining the thread.

    To clear the confusion let me explain about the different oos versions that were released

    • 3.5.5- This was the first release but the update was stopped as many people were facing network issues. Thread link
    • 3.5.6- This was the hotfix released to solve the network drop issue. This version is being used by most of the people. Thread link
    • 3.5.7- Many people lost their imei when they downgraded from 3.5.5 to 3.1.0 using the downgrade tool. Hence oneplus team came up with a fix for that and dubbed it as 3.5.7. If you have lost your imei then please PM @Crystal Z. your build number and email address for a patch fix guide to be sent to you.

    So there were lot of new and interesting features were introduced in this update as i used Oneplus 3 for a long time so i know about most of the features that you might not find that easily so I thought to share this with you all I will show most of the new features that I know and will tell you how to do it with the help of screenshots and videos

    Misconceptions about the new features

    These are not bugs these features were intentionally introduced by OnePlus in OnePlus 3 Open Beta program and was ported in Oneplus 2

    1. App Lock Bug- The App lock bug some people reported that when they unlock the app once it will remain unlocked until screen is switched off. This is not a bug it was intentionally done.

    2. Volume not lowering to 0 or not able to put the phone in vibration- I talked with lots of OnePlus 3 users and used Oneplus 3 myself this is not a bug it was intentionally done by OnePlus Developer Team. And you can put your phone to vibration by following the guide in #1 post

    Bugs that I am/was facing :-

    1. Pocket Mode not working I can still unlock my phone when my phone is in my pants.

    Status-Bug reported and contacted by oneplus team.

    2. When hotspot is turned on via settings then in quick tiles the hotspot icon lightens up but a slash can still be seen.

    Status-Bug reported and contacted by oneplus team.

    Bugs that others are facing but I am not facing them

    1. Night Mode not working
    2. Color Balance not working
    3. Not able to see messages
    4. Facing problems with contacts
    5. Volte not working

    These issues can be solved by resetting your phone. So first take backup of everything and then reset. If that doesn't work then there is a long process. Downgrade to 3.1.0 then to 3.1.1 via the method given in update thread. Then update to 3.5.6 via OTA this will solve all the problems except the bugs that I am facing.

    Report your bugs on the link given below as developers will hear you more quickly if you write in the bug report section .They might not be able to see your posts in general threads
    here is the link to report bugs
