    Reasons :

    new update :
    Both Call Of Duty mobile and Asphalt 9 : legends doesn't install on the phone at all tried downloading 3 times.

    I was very proud to have bought the one plus 8t on the day of the release but all of the excitement slowly drained down and I discovered too many bugs each and every day.

    Just to clarify the bugs are not significant but small things that you expect to work seamlessly with latest mobiles.

    Too many software bugs
    Youtube : the seekbar doesn't respond to touch
    PUBG. : The touch on the map doesn't work for some reason.
    Whatsapp : the send button disappears sometimes as you send messages.
    The ring for whatsapp is glitchy and is dwindling.

    Speaker issues : the ringtone fades in and out while ringing even for a flat tone like a flute. I tried with 3 different ringtones.

    Camera issues : landscapes are blurry as hell even in broad daylight. (portraits are still good)
    not something future updates won't fix but it's almost unusable for now.

    besides the last too, it seems like most of them are app specific bugs. Which even could be related to android 11.

    The YouTube seekbar was broken in the latest YouTube update, so nothing Oneplus can do about it.
    Pubg has a lot of app issues, so report it to the devs.
    Haven't personally faced the Send button issue on WhatsApp, but if the ring is glitchy, cut the call and dial again. The second call is crystal clear. Faced this issue km multiple devices, so not related to Oneplus.
    You'll need to elaborate on the speaker issues.
    Regarding the camera, if you click close-up images, only the part of the photo on which the camera has focused will be clear, due to the shallow depth of field which is common for large sensors. If this isn't the issue, then elaborate on the issue with a couple of examples

    I have reported all the bugs to the devs and the response they gave me was that it's was a sw packaging issue on the oxygen is and no other devices had this.
    you think this is just a blame game they are playing ??

    A lot of these bugs are caused by the Applications that have not yet been updated for Android 11. You see a lot of app makers reporting that they are working on updates.

    I've noticed some of the bugs are also because of the last Oxygen update. I've submitted bug reports also for this so expect an update in the near future.

    Overall, I don't see this as a valid reason yet to return the device... But sure, you're in your right to do so.

    I have been waiting to see if they fix the bugs with an update as many users report these.
    I have been using oneplus since the first phone and never see so much degradation in software and service support before.
    I don't know if this is due to the leaving of their founder or if they opted to cut corners due to Covid.
    It's just not the experience you expect from your favorite brand it has diminished.
    It's not only the software bugs that led me to make this decision.

    Again, this is also caused by OnePlus being the first to deliver Android 11 out of the box. Being first with software has downsides also.

    Might be true but atleast an acknowledgement by one plus Dev teams would have been nice !!

    Forgive me if I sound insensitive but...are these issues only with the Indian version? My 8T is basically flawless! About the only little weird thing I have seen is once in awhile, for some reason, when I swipe down on the screen to pull down the notification bar the keyboard will pop up...as if I might need to type something...that's it! I don't know why but this is the 3rd OnePlus phone I have owned...the 6, the 7Pro, and now the 8T and they all have worked almost perfectly! I do use Nova Prime, if that makes any difference. It seems like the vast majority of complaints come from people in India...Why? Are the phones being sold in India different from the ones being sold to the US? I cannot understand the disparity here.

    I am also frustrated with my one plus 8T. I bought it from Amazon. From day one I am facing heavy battery drain I tried all possible ways checking with OnePlus service chat and did all the things which they told. Still battery drains like anything from 100 to 90% without any use it will drain in 30 mins. Even in night 10% will be reduced. I can't return the Product since the return time is also over. like an orphan kid this OnePlus 8T on android 11. I am frustrated is there any hardware problem or software problem. most of the YouTube reviewers are getting 8 hour SOT but for me 4 to 5 max. watching prime video for 5 mins 7% battery drain 1603722884381.jpg

    Just for your information I have bought each and every phone right from oneplus one in 2014 till date and I have seen the prices rise and quality drop
    I have seen them slowly sway themselves to the conventional flagship features than stand out and provide unique ones
    So in this regards I am a true oneplus customer
    Just because you can say something pls do not judge anyone !!

    Bro the seek bar of youtube is not responding in many phone also. May be that bug is in youtube not in oneplus 8t. Because I face same problem in my Samsung phone, OnePlus 7, Sony phone as well as OnePlus 8t. My advice is wait and watch. All bugs fixes quickly. This is a new phone and all new phone have some bugs which is fixed by developer's in future updates.

    This change was made by Google, not OnePlus. This is not a bug but an intended design change. You can read about it here:

    Does anyone know if at least the Chromium freezing bug is fixed in Android 11?
