    No problem. Hope it's the same for you. The system UI crash was annoying on beta 7. Haven't seen it once on beta 8 though.

    You won't get this update OTA, you have to install beta updates manually. Once you've installed a beta you will only get beta updates OTA, not the stable ones and vice versa

    Well, beta's are for testing new builds and features that may or may not be implemented in the following stable builds. With beta's you can expect bugs which in turn you should report via feedback as a beta tester.

    Still having issue with Volte on my 1+8pro... Already request celcom carrier to activate volte subscription, try logkit apk and pdc guide still no luck... Very frustrating

    I've not seen anyone mention any issues with cellular signal giving up frequently? I'm having to reboot my OP 8 Pro daily - sometimes more than once a day - as it says no mobile signal is available. Turning airplane mode on and off doesn't fix it - I have to reboot. This appears to happen regardless of how strong the mobile signal is.
    It's completely unreliable as a phone since this beta 8 build.

    Update on heating issue:
    If was because of 8T live wallpaper app that i installed in beta 2. But at that time it was not the case. If been 2 days now and the excessive heating is gone.

    Its all beta testing and resolving issues are fine, but where are the new features? Idea 2.0 has some pretty amazing features list. Is OnePlus working on them? Or everyone is busy with Oneplus 9 Pro and Hasselbad partnership 😂

    I'd say updates for the 8 series in general will slow now that it's not the new kid on the block. That's why I keep a Pixel on hand; for fast and consistent updates. 👍🏻 Oneplus sucks with updates anymore. Used to be faster. Now it's only Pixel and Samsung that provide fast and consistent updates.

    From past few days have been facing issues with the battery. When the phone is in battery saver mode (set at 15%). While watching any video the phone will shutdown even after the battery is at 12%. This randomly happens anytime between 5% to 15%. And after that when you put the phone on charge it says battery tooo low. And then the charging count start from 1% when the phone boots up. Is anyone facing similar issue?

    Is Beta over now that the 9 series is out? Oneplus, you will eventually lose customers over your terrible update strategy. Making your loyal users run beta software just to stay up to date and then still don't stay up to date. Shame..... shame..... shame

    Fix battery drain, since that was upgraded to android 11 is a disaster. Previously on android 10 I got smoothly to more than 24 hours with 8 SOT now I hardly get to 12 with 6 SOT. Screenshot_20200715-051427.jpg Screenshot_20200715-051442.jpg
