    the worst thing I could do OP is do nothing!

    not hearing the claims and messages of your clients, it is your death sentence

    the customers you let down are the worst advertisement!

    Each of them will be in charge of making known the lack of respect they suffered from OP

    it has been read that OP wants to stop being a cult brand and become massive.

    bad way to start !!!

    It clearly seems they are just waiting for the end of life of 5 and 5T. At the end they will provide one update and in the market they will say that 3 year old phone still gets security update by Oneplus. Forget bi-monthly updates, its almost going to be 7 months with no security update.

    I see few points here.

    1. One plus not matching up to their promise. They are focusing more on the new phone lineups and now even more devices to their ecosystem like a smartwatch.
    2. Gradually moving away from the stock android to more and more customisations. New applications like card pack are added and heavy features like Oneplus scout.
    3. Allowing Bitmoji in always on display. It seems in future phones, we might get bitmoji pre-installed. Thus bloatwares are increasing.

    So I have decided to shift to the pixel phones. I live in India so here only Pixel 4a is available. Though there is no hardware upgradation from moving to my 5T to Pixel 4a, I feel its an upgradation to the software, schedule, UI and promise.

    Good bye OnePlus.

    Hi Team!

    Now that 8T has been released I guess there's more people available to push the build, how is it going ?
    Struggling or finalizing ?

    I want a very last run with 5T until the 9... Or "Sud" 🤓

    Y'all indian users are salty af man. The phone is 3 years old and we're on android 10. Can't you guys be ****ing grateful? "Oh my next phone is not gonna be oneplus" Who tf cares? Not Oneplus. Y'all old phone users are just bad business for them

    They're salty because the update is buggy. I guess there are a lot of people (myself included) who won the "update lottery" and their phone doesn't have any issues. I can't comment on battery usage since I have my weird charge/discharge patterns. Other than the missing EIS, I'm pleased.
    They're so pissed because they couldn't release another update for 5 months or something like that. We clearly weren't their priority and we still aren't but that's still a really S H * * thing to do.

    I am among the grateful bunch tho. What other phones running Snapdragon 835 got past android 9? Pixel and Essential? Now how many Snapdragon 845 will get android 11? Besides Pixel and OnePlus 6/T , none I think.

    People are gonna hate on me just because my phone still works after the update and 2.5 years of service. God bless.

    After one month!!!! OP continues without releasing a new version or giving us any new update. It's frustrating such behavior. Shame on you...

    1 month has passed even after this post about the delay but still no update last update was 5 months ago. At least you can't give 3 major android updates at least give 1 year of security update regularly and bug fixes

    I started to check this thread daily for the past week, hoping the security update will come. Honestly it's disappointing the 3 years patching is not fulfilled, one the other hand, the phone did its job, most likely its time for a new one. It would be nice to have the update and then have some extra months to decide what's the next phone. I was going to get a new oneplus but now like most people here, I'm going to get probably a new pixel. cheers!
