Notice regarding the OnePlus 5 & 5T update delay

    Well, 1 month has passed and I have serious doubts that you don't have any information to share with us like you promised if you would be working on the problem with "the highest priority"

    So before seeing this thread, I just bought a brand new 5T from ebay. It had Pie but I immediately flashed OOS 10 onto it. And holy mother of Abraham Lincoln does the battery life remarkably SUCK. I'm losing 3% per hour overnight with the phone doing nothing. After 8 hours 20-25% idle drain. Completely embarrassing and pathetic for a brand new phone battery. The OS itself actually works well and smooth. But that's eclipsed by the unbelievable idle battery drain.

    Thankfully I can still return this excrement for my money back.

    Return it and get a pixel 4a.

    My next phone is definitely gona be a pixel. This experience made me realize how much I value regular updates.

    Pixel 1 was released a year before 5T and has a stable A10 with December 2019 security patch.

    Pixel 2 was released months before 5T and has A11 with latest security patch.

    We are stuck here with buggy software and april2020 security patch. Shameful.

    5/5T owners who didn't get android 10 are stuck on feb2020 security patch.

    Will definitely flash a custom rom as my 5T can comfortably live another year. Then I will get the pixel 6 or 5a.

    Here everybody doesn't demand or shouted for update for next version of android (11).
    Everyone wants one last stable update which is required to use your phone as a daily driver.
    We just want a bug fix that's all.

    same here. initially I thought it's the battery as a hardware piece but I soon realized it started to happen just after the upgrade. If I knew, I wouldn't have upgraded, the previous version was much better. Anyway, I'm hoping to get the security update and a fix on the battery drain, so I can still use the phone without any concerns a few more months. There's also the custom ROM option but that should be an option only after the 3 years commitment assumed by OP ended. Since I bought the phone I was more than happy with the updates and patches, so I hope OP keep their word. Honestly I'm not into doing too much noise online like some suggested. The OP community is pretty tight and aware of stuff that is going around so creating buzz won't make much of a difference in my opinion.

    You're missing the point then.

    OnePlus wants more people to buy their phones, not just the people that already have them.

    They want to expand. they don't want to stay tight and closed lipped.

    I am experience the same issue. The solution is, after connecting AA, do some action on any AA-compatible app. For example, just pause and play Spotify. Then the car screen touch should work.

    Forget the so called promised features...Since May 2020, with OOS 10.0.0 update they have even snatched the EIS feature for camera which was there from the day of phone launch.

    It's not that they can't , but it seems that they don't want to provide updates to 5/5T not even fixing the issues being reported from past 5 months
