    The who-knows part will always be there for the companies having their products source code hidden.
    Not sure if Security patches are in AOSP or not but still if they are not you gotta trust them.
    Guess we have no option.

    I remember how Apple screwed a lot of people over when they released iOS 7 (I think it was that version). Perfectly good MFi devices such as our Hearing Aids would suddenly have major disconnect problems, sound issues and whatnot, and of course in the eyes of the users it wasn't Apple's problem, it was OUR problem. Only that the problem was at Apple's end of the protocols; we reported the bugs to them, but they never replied to it, never acknowledges them, never said anything. The connectivity problems only went away in the next major release of iOS. We only learned about bugs and fixes when they released the public beta. They're such a horrible company to work with, due to their paranoia about leaks (the paranoia isn't unwarranted, but they were taking it to extreme levels).

    It works during an upgrade but not when you are downgrading all data is erased.

    Possibly oneplus is making many devices at the same time and does not achieve a timely development time with so many devices, go slowly, with the development of the American version of OP8P, if you try to cover a lot you will press very little!!

    I often see claims of Apple being practically superior... Like "never" any issues and so on... Like if your case would never exist. Or an update that would not let you answer a phone call if the screen was off on X.
    Just take Samsungs or Pixels as examples on the Android side. Complaints an issues there too. Sometimes practically the same issues as here. And often all issues with Android 11 or issues with the SD865 SoC are judged as solely Oneplus issues.
    I see stuff like "my previous phone was so much better" practically regardless what was used before. Maybe it was for that particular case but at the same time some can be happy with the same phone model with the same software version. But that part is often skipped in the complaints.
    Personally I tried many brands. Some was pretty boring to own... Oneplus gives me the experiance I want. Hardware, software and a Community package that fits me. Room for improvments exists ofcourse. So I do what I can to help out. Tricky issues has been resolved, many bug rapports, e-mail conversations and so on... Ending up being rewarded the title Community Bug Hunter and Community Hero.
    Never wanted to involve myself this way with any other brand. So something right Oneplus must do 😜

    I'll try that tomorrow or maybe before bed. Laggy?
    I'm on beta 5 though so results may differ.

    Elder Scrolls Blades was acting strange at one time. But either the game or the OS solved something. Because at some point it started to run great.
    Mostly just gaming for testing purposes these days. Too many other things to do 😉
