oneplus 2 aa (9 of 13)

Despite increased competition this year, the OnePlus 2 has made a pretty decent splash so far, selling 30k Chinese OP2 units in just 64 seconds and racking up around 2 million (and growing) invite registrations for international markets. In order to ensure the best possible experience for new and upcoming owners, OnePlus is now pushing out the very first update to the OP2.

The Oxygen OS 2.1 update brings a number of improvements, including a patch to help deal with the well-known Stagefright security exploit. The new software also reportedly will improve battery life, and fixes a few other bugs along the way.

Here’s the full changelog, courtesy of OnePlus:

  • Added a patch for the Stagefright security exploit
  • Improves battery performance
  • Improves user interface logic and coherence
  • Fixed an issue with pinch-to-zoom in Google Photos
  • Fixed an issue where Dark Mode would cause instability in certain apps
  • Fixed an issue related to import/export of contacts stored on SIM card
  • Additional support for global carrier APNs
  • Other improvements and bug fixes

As you’d expect, the update will rollout in stages, starting with India. The update will start to make its way to other markets as more units starting shipping to those lucky enough to get their hands on an invite. Still, it’s good to see that OnePlus is working hard to be proactive with updates, performance tweaks, and bug fixes.

What do you think of the OnePlus 2 so far, interested in getting your hands on one?
