OnePlus 5 has been around for about two weeks but it’s already received several software updates, with the latest coming in with firmware version 4.5.5.
This is actually the third OxygenOS that OnePlus 5 is receiving since its official launch on June 20 and so far, this version carries a bunch of performance enhancements and system stability, as expected. Weighing a small 59MB, the update installs improvements to the phone’s Wi-Fi connectivity as well as voice calling feature.
In addition, the Chinese OEM says that this OxygenOS 4.5.5 update will improve your battery life by reducing the amount of power used when recording videos on your OnePlus 5 handset. There have been reports that the vibration intensity during incoming calls was immense. If this has been a problem for you, well, this update takes care of this issue once installed.
The update also takes care of several bugs that have been affecting early adopters of this OnePlus 5 phone. The bugs that showed a weak Wi-Fi signal and apps not being able to work under IPv6 network have been taken care of via this update.
As expected, OnePlus 5 users are receiving this latest update over the air, which means not all units will get it at once. If you have not seen the OTA notification yet, go to Settings>About phone>System update and do a manual update.
