    First of All, kudos to 1+ developer team for getting the update as promised in Q1 of 2016.

    CREDITS to Naman Bhalla for his detailed Installing instructionsof OOS 3.0

    i am waiting for this for a long time, i tried several custom roms Hydrogen , cm13, skydragon , miui 7 , etc.

    of all the custom roms i recommend cm13 unofficial which is stable and gave good battery & seemless performance

    problems i faced in OXYGEN OS 2.2.0 and 2.2.1

    1) over heating after browsing for 5 min, and it starts lagging alot while pinching and zooming
    2) regular frame drops in UI
    3) gaming performance is let down by the GPU throttling
    4)1+ launcher takes long time to open apps compared to google now launcher
    5) camera quality
    5a) over exposing in the macro shots
    5b) auto focus goes Haywire/erratic/ out of control for no reason in video capturing.. ISSUE exists since the launch of 1+2
    5c)lot of noise in indoor photos even after using HDR or clear image.

    OXYGEN OS 3.0 beta pros

    1) better performance overall
    2) no frame drops as on 2.2.1 , smooth 60fps transitions most of the time.
    3)contacts issue finally solved.
    4)new camera UI looks better
    5) i don't know why but the fingerprint seems to work faster than before, good job by 1+
    6)i did'nt face any network issues.
    7) ALL apps ran fine so far

    OXYGEN OS 3.0 beta CONS

    1) [SOLVED] . FRONT FACING camera does'nt work. if u press the Front Facing button in the camera UI ,nothing happens

    SOLUTION:
    i booted into recovery and wiped cache and dalvik cache and then rebooted into system. it worked

    2)expected better battery performance after the update , nothing as for now
    3)no equalizer
    4)video auto focus issue still remains,, it keeps on focusing while video capturing for no reason,i really hate this . it keeps on focusing even on a tripod which is making me crazy
    5)i expecting better photos than s7 or even s6 is a joke
    6) touch doesnt register sometimes while charging, i need to press the icon twice or thrice, this issue is there since beginning, maybe this has to do with hardware
    7) volume steps problem. volume goes high in first 2 ,3 steps
    8) no do not disturb toggle as in nexus , dissapointed... we have to use alert slider to silent the device

    Don't have pb with front facing cam. Battery life is better than on all previous versions here. Try to wipe cache or do a clean install for the cam bug you are facing because you are the first to mention this bug.

    Hum really strange, I haven't see that front facing cam pb on the forum assuming you did the update by clean install... Dis you face that before, on an other rom? Did it works with Google cam?

    Front Cam works without problems for me on 3.0 beta and I never faced your mentioned focus problem on previous versions. Same for 3.0 now, it's bugfree.

    Battery life noticeably better than before (2.2.1 and others).

    I can confirm the still really noisy images compared to what should be possible on this module. However from my feeling it gets better with paid third party apps (like cv5).

    After a few struggles in the beginning the system works incredibly stable now overall. Same applies to connectivity.

    Don't go with a device because of the hardware specs. Do check on the MIUI, if you like it then go ahead.
    Oh BTW the 4 axis OIS sounds like a marketing gimmick for me.
    Video stabilisation isnt that great either.

    Oneplus 2 is a great device and is getting better day by day. Sure enough it is no 2016 flagship killer, but at the current price you pretty much can't go wrong with it.
    But If you can hang around a bit, there is OP 3 coming in June.
