The OnePlus One lived up to its promise of offering high-end specs at a cutthroat price, but the smartphone’s debut hasn’t gone by without the odd bug and hiccup. The latest 206MB update for the OnePlus One, version XNPH38R, finally addresses one of the handset’s more infuriating issues – touchscreen sensitivity.

Users should find multitouch more responsive after the update, and typing should also feel more fluid. Some niggling camera issues have been addressed and screen rotation is now also working as it should.

As well as a selection of bug fixes, OnePlus has packed in a few new features with this update. There’s a new looking lockscreen, the option to capture photos in RAW format, support for 24-bit 96/192kHz FLAC, ALAC and WAV audio files, and ANT+ support for health accessories.

Here’s a copy of the changelog from OnePlus:

  • Added method for users to report bugs directly to Cyanogen.
  • Added pause button during video recording.
  • Improved battery life.
  • Fixed issues with camera exposure compensation stuck in ‘auto’.
  • Fixed issues with ‘4G Preferred’ option not connecting to 3G data.
  • Fixed issues with delay in torch activation.
  • Fixed issues with unresponsive screen requiring reboot.
  • Fixed issues with static in speaker when changing volume while headset plugged in.
  • Fixed issues with rotation not triggering when rotated slowly.
  • Fixed issues with Quiet Hours / system UI causing battery drain on last day of month.
  • Fixed issues with camera not starting when LED torch is already on.
  • Fixed issues with Bluetooth volume low on connection.

The update has begun “slowly” rolling out OTA today, so, depending upon your location, you might see the update notification sometime over the next week. If you can’t wait that long, the files have already appeared over on the XDA Forum for you to install yourself.
