    No difference in the previous one and this update.
    1) Standby Overnight battery drain still isn't fixed.
    2) Camera Quality is very poor. Even a budget device produces better photos than this device. On zooming photo a little bit all the details are distorted. Dont know whether it's hardware issue or camera app is doing this.
    3) On capturing human image, it is dimming the background and creating unnatural glowing skin tone on human face. and at night, human face feels like ghost. all the colours are washed off from the photo.
    4) 90 fps isn't working in PUBG. It's only giving 60 fps output even after selecting 90 fps in game.
    Major disappointment from OnePlus 8T was camera. I hope software update fixes it. The image processing algorithms are worst.

    Most annoying thing that I noticed this far on my OnePlus 8 T is the issue that you can't turn off the screen using power button while you receive a call which isn't the case on my OnePlus 8 device. Not sure if this is due to Google phone app that is present on 8T and we have stock OOS Phone dialer app on OnePlus 8. Is there a fix to this that anyone is aware of. If yes, pls help share it with me.

    Okay, OnePlus.

    See, we love your phone application more than the Google stock application. If you cannot bring that back, at least allow us to swipe away calls without declining them. (The screen doesn't turn off even after pressing the lock button, it turns back on but the call doesn't go away.)

    The notifications on the AOD (wake screen) for many applications show the name TWICE. (And the message below it). Please fix.

    Also, still needs camera update. The RAW is too processed, and the blacks in JPEG 12 MP is too crushed.

    Highlights are blown out, all images are being over exposed.

    I've had better results when I turned off the first two options regarding intelligent HDR and scene recognition. Recommend you to do that as well.

    Not acceptable from you, OnePlus.

    I've already given the camera feedback on the feedback reporting in OnePlus. I've not written about the call feature.

    As mentioned in the initial post, this is a hot-fix update, that's why the change log remains unchanged.

    This is a Oneplus 8T update post. If you want an update for the Oneplus 6, please go to the forum page for the Oneplus 6 instead of posting here. In addition, also use the app's feedback function to feedback to the developers.
