OxygenOS Oneplus 6 no longer app switching, camera crashing, what's going on?

    For a couple of weeks (has there been a new update?) I've seen a serious drop off in performance. For one thing, the camera app is now barely functional - it will hang for ages when loading and when taking a picture - often the app crashes without the picture having been actually taken. This also causes whatever custom wallpaper I have set to revert back to the default.

    More seriously, my phone won't app switch at all now - whenever I switch away and then back to an app, the phone reloads it.

    I also feel like battery life has taken a tumble, but that's not so certain.

    Is anyone else having these problems?

    I don't know about the other issues, but it does seem that an update leaves junk in the camera cache:

    Try clearing the data and cache for the camera app. Then restart the phone.
    All 3 steps and in that order.

    This should stop the camera app from crashing and resetting the wallpaper.

    This doesn't work. Technically it does but after a while it goes back to being laggy and changing the wallpaper.

    Which version is your camera app? Did you side load OP7 live wallpaper?
