    I have the OnePlus 8 5G UW IN2019, and since I updated it to IN2019_15_210312 the phone has been sluggish with the System UI crashing a lot, prior to the update the phone ran perfectly. On top of that apps that ran perfectly fine started to crash if it wasn't the System UI, I have to use my phone for work but the constant crashing is making it hard.

    Is there a temporary fix until an update comes to fix it that doesn't involve a factory reset?

    try something easy like just clearing the device cache in recovery first.
    I also heard that it may help to turn off ram boost in settings.

    I thought I had updated my launcher to 5.1.4 but it was on 5.1.3. Updated it, cleared cache, restarted my phone. I also cleared the cache in recovery mode, hopefully that fixes the issue. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Unfortunately those attempts didn't help. I may end up having to factory reset my phone because that update is so horrible.

    After Backing up, full Erase All Data factory Reset might be the best option.

    Let us know how that goes for you.

    It will not help, I did 4 factory resets, and I still have that problem with crashing and lag and freezing....
