    we all know pie is delayed for the op3/t. but how about the security patch? we're still running November 2018 security patch when you promised us a bi-monthly security patch update. we should've received one last January and another one for this month.

    As David Y. has already made clear that the software is under the CTS phase, he also for the very first time gave a tentative schedule for the CTS process to complete 'atleast 4 days' he also shared a screenshot of the about phone, running pie!
    When he is being so transparent then maybe you should appreciate that, do your bit and be patient!
    It's a matter of days now.

    Take your time with that pie.

    somebody please tell me why I am not allowed to start a new thread.

    Because you can't be bothered to read the rules, and obviously have nothing of value to say?

    Took some time for someone to post it.
    Gotta ask for Q

    S7 launched same year as oneplus 3, sd820 - not even pie
    S8 launched 2017, sd835 - will NOT receive android Q
    Most flagships get 2 updates. Op3 owners are lucky enough to get 3 updates since both phones(regular and T) have passed the 2 year lifetime after which almost no phones receive updates ( except security patches)
    The oneplus 5 and 5t MAY get Q, no promises
    If you are unhappy with the oneplus maintenance schedule for updates please get a pixel. There's no other phone brand besides pixel that's offering more major software updates than oneplus

    Sorry for long post ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Hi there, as mentioned in the personal message every new user gets, you're only able to post in Starting Point for the first 15 days of your account, but you're still able to participate in already existing threads.

    5G is hardware dependent. That means it's not possible to simply update a phone to have 5G. If you want 5G, the only option is to buy a 5G phone.
