    Just saw this so wanted to share :D

    The build (version 3.1.4 of Oxygen OS) addresses the main issues that some reviewers raised about the device: the inaccurate display and the questionable RAM management rules of the OnePlus 3.

    This special OTA is only sent out to review units, and the plan is to incorporate the feedback in a consumer OTA that will be released “a bit later on,” according to OnePlus.

    Logistical issues have prevented us from testing the new OTA right away, but we will report with our findings as soon as we can run the update.

    What exactly can you expect from this update? First up, the OTA will enable sRGB mode, accessible from Settings > Developer Options. Turning sRGB mode on will tone down the colors shown by the OnePlus 3, which have been by AnandTech and others for being generally inaccurate. That said, this update may not affect other issues with the display, including the relatively low peak brightness and bluish cast.

    Adam Krisko, community manager for OnePlus, shared a couple images that show what you can expect in terms of color rendition. The less saturated sRGB mode is on the left, default mode is on the right.



    Second, the OTA will relax the aggressive RAM management policy that causes the OnePlus 3 to sometimes kick apps out of memory despite its generous 6GB of RAM. OnePlus specified that the update should result in faster game loading times as well. If this change makes it to consumer devices, it will mark a reversal from OnePlus’ initial stance, which amounted to pointing users towards community developed ROMs.

    Besides the toned-down display mode and improved RAM management, the OTA will bring other, unspecified “optimizations.”

    Me personally, I don't have any issues with the screen or RAM management. But it is good to hear that OP is listening to it's community. :)

    Woah, see that sRGB in action right there. Looks way better to me, especially on the first photo.

    The update will allow you to desaturate the display? Mine is already so desaturated that reds look like they've spent one too many days in the sun.

    It's nice that they've already released it to review units but not us common folk that actually paid $400 for the device. :confused:

    Your thread is a mega thread, I just wanted to share in info with a new thread so that the info is shared with the whole community rather than just the people following your thread.

    Any chance these unspecified “optimizations.” would include options to manage the Marshmallow DND settings?

    Nah.... no manufacturer in the world would release software in alpha stage to the people. Just think about a mistake they build in and people are complaining about loss of Data.
    I think it is good that in early development they ask people who review a lot of devices for there opinion. Crafting quality ;)

    It's been almost a week with the OnePlus 3 now.

    Have no issues with the display screen or the aggressive RAM management (don't need 8-10 app/games running in the background).

    OTA's are always welcome but i sincerely hope they don't screw up with the battery life while relaxing the RAM management.
    Would prefer better battery life on any given day. Period.

    Thank you for the update.

    I have been using my OP3 since Monday & I love the display, speed, design language & everything about it, I don't understand why some people are moaning about the display (maybe they just like to moan). In my opinion it beats my old iPhone 6S in every possible way. My advise to anyone considering buying OP3 should buy it & you will love it.
