For example, it updates the security patch of both phones to May 2017. The betas introduce new versions of OnePlus' ambient display, gallery, recorder, weather, and file manager apps. The contact app now supports dual numbers and dual email addresses, automatically inserts the proper country codes when roaming, and refines the process for importing contacts from SIM cards. OnePlus says third-party apps should open quicker once with the new version of OxygenOS is installed. These betas must be installed manually and are not meant for everyday use.
Unlocked smartphones let you use your device on the carrier of your choice, whether at home or travelling overseas. Though unlocked phones tend to be pricey, you can't really put a price on the freedom they offer.
This unlocked Android smartphone from OnePlus is an excellent handset for the contract-averse. OnePlus took its excellent flagship phone from earlier this year and improved it with a round of fresh components under the hood.
