even Though it was in 2013 when the firm was presented with the terminal that made them achieve fame, it has not been until this year to 2016, when OnePlus has given a blow upon the table, launching not one, but two devices capable of coping with any other terminal which is put ahead.
in case outside little, in addition, thanks to the similarities between the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3Q, the firm has the ability to to develop a software nearly identical for both terminals, therefore, the time that the users will have to wait until receiving the updates is considerably reduced.
A good test of this is the update to Android 7.0 Nougat for the OnePlus 3, which even today is still in the form of beta, it is only a matter of weeks that the firm will release the OTA definitive for all users.
For this reason, the companions of the Urban Techno come today with a video where we show the main novelties of this update, which of course, you can try on your OnePlus 3.
OnePlus 3 Android 7.0 Nougat, news
The first thing that jumps to the view when you install this update is that OnePlus has decided to maintain the simplicity that defines OxygenOS, this time in its version 4.0. The majority of sections of the software are identical to what we call as Android Pure, and only find certain modifications carried out by OnePlus that, in contrast to the layers of other manufacturers, it does provide an added value to Android 7.0.
of course, we will be able to enjoy the improvements included in Android 7.0 Nougat, as the new look of the notifications, which will be expandable with a simple gesture, and that we will also be able to answer or to dismiss.
OnePlus has not forgotten the multi-window… More or less. It is true that this mode is integrated in the operating system, as in all the terminals upgraded to Android 7.0, but OnePlus has not implemented the support for multi-window applications pre-installed, though taking into account that we are faced with a beta, it is something we can forgive.
, Either we will miss what is, for me, one of the most important features that Android has included in recent years: the possibility of a return to the previous open application with a double-tap on the multitask button.
And yes, it is true that OxygenOS is one of the layers of customization with more similarities with regard to Android pure, but, even so, OnePlus has not let pass the opportunity to add a few strokes unique to this update, as the change in appearance of the notifications panel or settings, which now has a design more clean, and that has changed the green tones of the blue that we already saw in the software of the Google Pixel, although of course, it can be customized to our taste.
Another of the sections, where OnePlus has decided to meter hand is in the launcher native. As you may already know, there is a panel named Shelf where you can configure several widgets and shortcuts. This panel has undergone a major redesign, and now his appearance, based on card along the lines Material Design, and with a background translucent, is more adapted to the appearance of Android. It is necessary to comment that this panel may be disabled from the settings of the launcher.
finally, the comment that there is now the possibility of change the format of the launcher, bringing all applications to the home screen, as already used by other manufacturers of chinese origin. Fortunately, OnePlus gives us the option of being able to activate, or not, this mode.
As we already mentioned in the article where I was able to test this version thoroughly, we are faced with an update is really important, and although many of the innovations are not visible to the naked eye, has made the software of the OnePlus 3 will continue working just great, now with even more and better functions, what more can you ask for?.
