OnePlus Releases Beta Fix for Touchscreen Issues on OxygenOS, Requires the Flashing of Zips

For anyone who rocks the OxygenOS custom ROM on the OnePlus One, a fix has been made available for a reported touchscreen issue, but OnePlus notes this is just a beta fix. Issues may still occur.

The process seems rather simple enough, as it involves just downloading and flashing two separate zip files. Although, you do need .Net 4.5 downloaded and you must be running this on a locally installed version of Windows 7 or Windows 8. No Mac support.  (more…)

OnePlus on Rumors: OnePlus 2 Will Cost More Than $322, Phone’s 810 Won’t Melt Your Face

Yesterday, OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 2 will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 chipset. Thanks to the controversially hot (not “hot” in a good way, folks) year that the Snapdragon 810 has entertained, you can’t blame fans for sharing their disappointment in the news. OnePlus attempted to address those concerns in another post to their forums, this morning, while also speaking on rumors of a random price that has floated about the dark tunnels of the interwebs.  (more…)

A week ago, OnePlus announced that their first phone, the OnePlus One, would see a flash sale-like $50 discount for a week. Since that “experiment was a great success,” they have decided to drop the price permanently by $50 to $249 (16GB) and $299 (64GB).  Even though this phone is over a year old, that’s still a heck of a price for a phone this good.  (more…)
