      • Some applications may not function as expected when running on this beta version

    Please keep in mind that this is a beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks. And please remember to tell us about any bugs you may find using the bug report forums, found here: https://forums.oneplus.com/feedback/

    We have integrated the Feedback tool into Community App and you can report bugs and share Logs directly to our bug hunters with the community App.

    To submit a new bug report
    Community app > Profile > Feedback > click on + icon > select a category > fill in the details attach screenshots if any > submit (the tool will capture logs based on the category)


    In some cases, you might have to record the logs for a longer period and reproduce the issue before you can submit a bug report (for example, network drops)
    Community app > Profile > Feedback > click on + icon > select a category > fill in the details attach screenshots if any > start recording (the app records logs in the background > once the issue has been reproduced > Stop Recording > submit

    Do try out the new Feedback tool, it is now much easier and simpler for our community to report bugs and share feedback with us. If you have any questions or need help, please contact [email protected]

    Please note:
    • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta) you will receive this new build as an OTA.
    • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM found on the downloads page here: http://downloads.oneplus.com/ (requires full data wipe before updating from stable to open beta).
    • Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
    • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
    Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too, we are watching.

    Never Settle.

    Known issues with Beta 2 - September 9th
    Lift up display is buggy - flashes quickly to yellow and then red before disappearing.

    Screen brightness threshold is significantly lower (not sure if it was intentional).
    UPDATE: Seems to be intentional. Here's a quote from XDA explaining this:
    "The first noteworthy feature is a changed brightness slider behaviour: It now changes the brightness logarithmic-ally instead of linearly. Before this preview when it was linear, about 90% of the brightness was controlled by the lower 20% of the left of the slider. The old 50% brightness was almost identical to 100% max brightness, and the old 5% brightness was significantly brighter than 0% brightness. Now, the change in perceptual brightness is more uniform as you increase or decrease the slider."

    YouTube and some other apps aren't present in the App display in fullscreen list.

    When using Fingerprint and face unlock the wake screen transition are noticeably slower.

    Volume rocker primarily adjusts media volume over ringtone/notifications. (could be a feature of Android P) - UPDATE: A feature of Android P

    Ambient display doesn't show battery percentage.

    Bluetooth connectivity issues with certain devices (works fine for me with bose and bullets wireless).

    High Brightness in ambient display which may cause amoled burn.

    UPDATE - September 10th

    When covering proximity sensor, the finger print unlock does not work.
    Fix - turn off pocket mode if you want to unlock device even after covering the proximity sensor.

    Lift up display - emoji in display text gets its color distorted.

    Navigation Bar sometimes fades in and out or disappears when the phone is unlocked by using Fingerprint sensor (unsure of the contributing triggers for this)

    Alarm does not trigger in off mode even when the feature is available.

    Schedule On/Off Phone sometimes doesn't turn on.

    Hangout app is bugged - force closes when trying to send SMS.
    Possible Fix - Reinstalling, Clearing Cache through the app.

    Pattern lock is positioned at the center of the screen making it hard to swipe the pattern with your thumb.

    Some Apps don't function/refresh properly when using Mobile Internet.
    Works fine with WiFi though.

    Adaptive brightness is horrible under direct sunlight (personal experience) - my screen may as well have been switched off. - will try a factory reset later to see if it fixes this.

    UPDATE - September 11th

    When using this option, the recent apps menu (swipe up) gets bugged in a few ways (like clear apps button disappearing or card stacking etc.) - not sure if it's third party Launcher related or with the Oneplus Launcher or both.

    UPDATE - September 12th

    Twitter and some other apps keeps closing(not force closing) while browsing.
    Possible fix - Reinstalling, Clearing Cache Through the App or Factory reset.
    Try Factory Reset(Recommended to take backup before) at your own risk.

    UPDATE - September 13th

    Battery saver is automatically getting set to activate at 99% at random, ireggardlsss to what % you set it at.
    NOT A BUG.
    It was Google's an internal experiment that was mistakenly deployed publicly.
    Guess skynet is still not self-aware yet (maybe Arnold prevented the apocalypse)[e]1f609[/e]

    UPDATE - September 15th BETA 3 :
    Some of the issues were fixed from BETA 2.

    Will edit this as we discover more bugs or if I have missed out on any existing ones.

    Clearing Cache via Recovery(
    apparently does nothing) So read up on this quote from XDA
    "In addition to the other changes, the cache partition has been removed. It now resides in the data partition and is no longer used for anything related to updates. One result is that wiping cache in TWRP no longer does anything. If you want to clear cached data go into Settings>Storage & memory, then tap Cached data at the bottom and then tap OK. (This option is missing - Not sure if that's a P feature - Someone who knows about this do let me know)
    Try at your own risk.

    Uninstalling and re-installing apps causing issues seems to fix the issues for some.
    Clearing Cache of the apps causing issues seem to fix issues for some.
    Factory Reset seems to fix some of the issues - try at your own risk after taking a backup.

    Here you go @Funk Wizard

    Do tag me(@aj2989) if you face any issues - which isn't on this list, and I will add it here after checking it out.

    PS: I am not part of the staff, just taking note of common issues and putting it on a single post for everyones benefit. Please do not DM me to fix the issues.
    Thanks for understanding.

    For BETA 3 if a new thread is created I will try to make another known issue post, like this or just edit this one beyond this point if a new thread isnt created.

    Its great however I haven't seen the Digital well being stuff or any of the pie slices and ai features of one plus 6. Any way I can enable this or something like that. I use nova launcher could that possibly be the problem.

    Digital wellbeing is now exclusive to pixel devices for sometime though it is a part of Android pie. We will be able to see it after few months.

    what changes have they made to the pocket mode feature?

    does the phone now remain locked in the pocket even after accidentally touching the fingerprint scanner??
