    It looks like a very light OS. This is good news to me, coming from a Samsung (first and last) - its a laggy beast thanks to Touchwiz

    Oxygen OS = User Interface + ... + Android <-- Oneplus

    Touchwiz = User Interface + ... + Android <-- Samsung

    MIUI = User Interface + ... + Android <-- Xiaomi

    Color OS = User Interface + ... + Android <-- OPPO

    ZenUI = User Interface + ... + Android <-- Asus

    Vibe UI = User Interface + ... + Android <-- Lenovo

    FunTouch OS = User Interface + ... + Android <-- Vivo

    MEUI = User Interface + ... + Android <-- Huawei

    The list goes on and on ...

    After a big bang ANDROID, then STARS are born infinitely, until for what ever the reasons, some of theses STARS will die.

    Some of these STARS have PC Suite to manage their smartphones, e.g. update & upgrade theirs OS, photos, videos, apps, copy files, .......:

    Except iPhone is not Android phone and has name IOS for OS and Blackberry also is not Android phone

    A custom skin placed upon stock Android in order to stand out from the crowd.

    You forgot to mention windows phone. And most important:Android is not really an OS, the base of all android devices is Linux.

    You can try to port touch wiz to an Oneplus device, but I m not sure if there are many people who would want to use it.

    If you re not root the OS and manipulate it, it 's rather stable. As mentioned in announcements by Oneplus staff members a monthly update schedule is planned, but I ve seen also hotfix-patch-for updates after 1-2 weeks. I suggest, you start reading several announcements and postings here in the forum, since your questions are all answered months ago.

    Not? I got up times of several weeks without rebooting. Try this with a Windows PC.

    My windows pc works just fine since first day. Not M$ fault if people can't use their Sw properly and install shitty trojans and viruses all the time.

    On the other hand Oxygen OS is filled with bugs.
    BT does not even work.
    It has massive wakelocks
    Facebook App crashes when GPS location is denied to it (malfunction in app permissions ofc)
    inline controls in headsets do not work (besides a few bunch)
    Led goes to red even when configured to other colors before fading away on notifications.
    It's relatively slow for how much of a beast CPU and RAM this device has.
    long etc... just look on the forums and you will see...

    Bluetooth works fine for me, I m wearing a jabra extreme 2 Headset all day at work without problems. Data transfer via Bluetooth works fine, too. My payleven chip and pin reader works also via Bluetooth. Facebook Lite works fine, the full app ist way too bad coded by Facebook. So you should blame Mr. Zuckerberg and not Oneplus. FB crashes on other phones, too. I line control in headset? Do not use such outdated material, Don t like cable headsets, since the microphone has bad function when I m turning my head etc. The ones, I ve tested here are working fine. Led colour? I Don t care about the colour of a led. And I sure, that 's not a reason to tell a system not stable. CPU and RAM? Don t know, what you're doing with a PHONE. I got mine for several months and it works and works... Maybe you should buy a game console with phone functionality???
