OxygenOS on the OnePlus its not perfect, no 4K


With OnePlus and Cyanogen Mod departing ways after some disputes between the two companies OnePlus One has decided to make there own OS for there devices. While the the companies have departed you can still download nightly updates for Cyanogen Mod on the OnePlus.

One of the first things you will notice when downloading Oxygen to your device is thats its pretty much running stock lollipop Android. On top of this you get some added customisation. Some note worthy features include the new drop down menu with settings to move the icons around. Another new great feature are the lock screen gesture shortcuts, for example if you were to tap on the lock screen twice it will open. Another is to draw a V to open up the flashlight and again to turn it of.

These new added features are great but there are also some major flaws that need tot be addressed with the camera. As its running stock android it is using the native Google Camera app which does not allow you to access all of the potential resolutions of the camera such as 4K and 1080p. Even if you were to download third party camera and gallery apps you still loose out as they are not compatible with the OxygenOS. This may be a huge speed bump for potential buyers who were looking to use the 4K features on the device.

Overall the new OxygenOS is very fluid and clean, that doesn’t go without saying that there are some issues that need to be addressed. OnePlus One is still a very new company and do have great hardware so there is still promise for the OS to catch up.
