OnePlus announces OxygenOS 3.5 Community Build for the OnePlus 3

Have a OnePlus 3 and feeling adventurous? OnePlus has just announced a “community” build of the still-work-in-progress OxygenOS 3.5. In a nutshell, this community build allows OnePlus 3 users to try out some of the new features OnePlus is working on for OxygenOS; and through this, the company also hopes to gather feedback so that it can improve on the software's quality before rolling it out officially.

New features in OxygenOS 3.5 include:

  • Several UI improvements
  • New and improved OnePlus apps, including clock, weather and file manager
  • Improved camera software
  • More robust settings and and customization features

While this list may look short, OnePlus says that the biggest changes actually happen at the backend.

Of course, this is after all beta software, so it’s not without bugs. Current issues listed include:

  • Android Pay is not currently supported
  • Only English is currently supported in several OnePlus apps
  • Some performance issues
  • Some UI issues when using custom themes
  • System UI tuner is unstable (do not use); using the system UI tuner could cause serious issues that can only be resolved via factory reset
  • You will need to re-register your fingerprints if you have fingerprint authentication enabled

If you still want to go ahead, know too that you’ll need to flash this build by ADB sideload. Instructions can be found here.
