    Is this still a thing?
    I just watched star wars on Google Play and Stranger Things on Netflix in HD on my 5T.
    Just wait a few more seconds for the network to pick up and I am watch HD content perfectly here.

    I bought 5t to change my Samsung S7 because of the screen size and now I can't watch HD video streaming? WTF. My S7 has L1 certification and I am able to streaming HD content. I have 3 days to change my mind and give it back. I like 5t and now I don't know what to do give it back oraz not.

    Yeah agree, this is kind of bad! Ridiculous that it's not implemented. Let's do a petition. We should spread it to different review sites to they actually bring it up. Major thing for a lot of people. Netflix is obviously the largest steam service for now.

    Yeah it's pretty odd nothing has been brought up about it in a bigger fashion before!

    bump, this has to be spreaded out, people that want to buy a Oneplus have know that a 500€ phone that claims to be a flagship killer can't even play hd on netflix.

    should be stated on every banner loud and clear near the Never Settle joke.

    To be honest, I am working for a big mobile-news-website (this one is not in english) and I tried to bring this topic up. In the end, my chief-editor wasn't interested. But we discussed it in the office. Everyone (else) was saying this is a major thing..

    However, because of my job I should not be the one, who starts contacting other mobile-news-websites (=rivals).

    But if anyone wants to do this: Start contacting mobile-news-websites in India (I remember there are some big ones writing in english). OnePlus 5T sold pretty well there and many people bought it from amazon. So it's likely they never visited this community.
    Get in contact with GSM Arena, PhoneArena and Android Authority, too. This should generate some serious media pressure. I feel like this is also important for future OnePlus-devices.

    It seems a patch is on the way.

    "A company spokesperson says that a future update for the 5T will enable Widevine Level 1, but did not elaborate on why it was omitted from the start. The spokesperson was unable to provide a time frame for when the update will be made available at this time."


    EDIT: Damn it, just saw the edit from @Zalpa
