    Answers to the most commonly and repeatedly asked questions!!

    Q. Why is my brightness low after upgrading to Android Pie 9.0?

    A: Google introduced new algorithm for the brightness which will give more control to the user specially in darker environments. The user have to train the brightness preferences for some time in different lighting conditions they use their device so that the device learns it and then adjusts the brightness automatically after that.

    Q. Where is clear Cache in Android Pie?

    A: Android Pie no longer incorporates the option to clear it in Settings. One has to clear cache by individual app now. However the option is still available in Recovery.

    Q. Why is there no Digital Well-Being available in OnePlus 5/5T running Pie?

    A: Digital Wellbeing is currently available only to Pixel devices and Android One devices. This may change in near future and OnePlus devices may be added to its supported device list.

    Q.Why is "X" app crashing in my phone running Android Pie?

    A: Many apps are still not updated to support Android Pie, that is the reason they are not able to run in the new OS. Contacting the app developer will be much more helpful.

    Q. My storage is showing extra space after update to Pie, why?

    A: Android Pie also shows the space used by System thus showing the total available storage which was not visible in Oreo.

    Q. Why is my battery draining so fast after update?

    A: This is a major upgrade, you should give it some time to settle before the battery starts working normally. Also battery calibration is always a good way to get most out of it.

    Q. I do not like the new Recents layout, what can i do?

    A: Unfortunately, nothing can be done about it. Its how Google designed it.

    Q. Why don't i see new Pill Navigation Style / New Recents(Task Viewer)?

    A: Sometimes update messes up app data and settings. To solve this clear OnePlus Launcher data and reboot the device. Also check for any updates on Play Store for OnePlus Launcher. Make sure the OnePlus Launcher version is 3.1.xx or above.

    Note: OnePlus 5 does not support new Gesture based Navigation.

    Q. My Play Store is showing "uncertified" after i downgraded to stable, how can i solve it?

    A: Clear Google Play Services data and Play store data and Reboot. Let Play store update automatically and it should change the status to Certified.

    Q. Why cannot i use volume buttons to control the ringtone volume in Android Pie?

    Google has made change to it, now we can change media volume by default. OnePlus has provided a shortcut to directly go into settings to make it easier to change the ringtone volume.

    Q. Why my Fingerprint does not work, after my phone is in standby for long time?

    A: The Fingerprint service goes to sleep and thus doesn't allow unlocking the phone.
    To avoid this, the current work-around it to turn Off Standby Optimization in Advanced Optimization Battery Settings or wake up the phone using Power button after long standby.

    Q. Why does my Audio Tuner not working on Bluetooth?

    Bluetooth Audio Tuner support is not yet part of this update, it may arrive in future updates. Its currently in Beta testing for Oneplus 6.

    Q. Why did not i receive the update yet?

    A: Its a staged roll-out already mentioned in announcement post, so wait for your turn to get the notification for the update in your device.

    Q. Will my OnePlus 5/5T support Dual 4G VoLTE after Pie?

    No they will not. The Snapdragon 835 does not have required hardware to support Dual 4G VoLTE. Only one sim will be able to connect to 4G VoLTE at a time.
