The most popular improvement here will probably be those that have to do with camera quality. The OnePlus 3’s camera had a bad tendency of occasionally getting some weird green and yellow issues, and the white balance wasn’t particularly thrilling. Not only does the update fix these two issues, but it also improves video recording when you’re shooting in 1080p.

Another popular fix will be that frustrating Bluetooth connectivity issue that had cropped up with a variety of vehicles. Furthermore, vocal call quality has been improved for IM applications like Messenger.
