    Well, that's true as well ;)
    But there will be an explosion of threads for sure :)
    Anyways, considering the delay (perhaps an understatement now), it's time to perhaps jump off the OnePlus ship. If devices like the 6T can't get their second Android update in a reasonable time frame, there is very little scope of the scene improving for future devices.
    Cheers :)

    Thanks for the update @Dresa91

    Right... I have beer and potato chips in so let the posts begin.

    "But OnePlus promised..."

    "They lied to us... "

    "Worst company ever...."

    "Never buying a OnePlus phone again..."

    ... and the list goes on.

    In a world that is ravaged by COVID and 1,000's dying each day perhaps we should maintain a perspective here and say... "It's only a phone and we will be receiving an Android 11 update in due course and may it please your god that you are around to get it"

    Alternatively, you can whine, *****, moan and threaten like a lot of little school kids and it will not make the slightest difference to the outcome.

    The choice is yours! ;)

    All so true, but the same few will still whine. All par for the course. 😱

    Can't believe this is your first thread 😱

    One advice, add the rollback build of Android 10 as soon as Android 11 available for OnePlus 6 ;):D

    In any case, for once, i don't agree with @ironass.
    Let us not blame this on the pandemic and what not. This is a pure ignorance of the old devices thanks to OnePlus' focus on newer once. I never expected to get A11 before Q2, but to move it beyond half of Q3 is unacceptable.

    Sure, there are many more new devices to cater, but Beta by end of August? Come on. It's pathetic.

    And ya, by that time, OP6/T will be EOL. So we will be having a buggy A11 and no more updates to get fixes.

    i would be surprised if they even manage to take out time to give mostly bugfree open beta release in 3 months, however i have a feeling there will be some serious bug and they will either have to postpone or halt the release.

    As @the_o2 mentions, be a good resource for things like the Rollback to OOS 10 or previous OOS 11 versions, maybe yourself and @ironass could collaborate on it, the Rollback thread he created for rolling back to 10 or 9 was a well used resource in fairness. Can add anything similar once Android 11 rolls out.

    We will have to wait and see, maybe OnePlus will surprise us and give a relatively good version. Android will never be bug free, but get it as good as possible and happy days. Though 10 came out with a lot of bugs initially, runs smooth now though. So it can be done.

    It will be flooded nonetheless, because nobody bothers, won't use search, entitlement etc..

    This is a very sad but accurate conclusion. Right now OnePlus is moving to the bottom of the list of Android updating policies.

    Now, if these were still cheap phones that would be acceptable, but that's not the case.

    I'll have one of those beers if you don't mind ;)

    I'll recommend users to switch to Lineage OS, save themselves the stress.

    Forums will continue to be a mess nonetheless.
