OnePlus began rolling out OxygenOS 3.5.5 for the OnePlus 2 just a few days ago, promising significant upgrades such as support for VoLTE and a refreshed UI. However, a number of users have now taken to the company’s forums to highlight serious network problems they’ve been facing since the OTA update came out.
The issue seems to be mainly concentrated in India, particularly among Reliance Jio and Airtel owners of the OnePlus 2. Many of them are using both carriers at the same time. The most frequent complaint appears to be of the signal dropping a few times every minute.
This annoying occurrence seems to raise its head only when mobile data is activated. Switching to Wi-Fi apparently puts an end to it. No common reason for the issue has been uncovered so far, though it does appear as if a bug in OxygenOS 3.5.5 is to blame.
One potential solution involves performing a Network settings reset, while another requires individuals to insert two SIM cards but disable the one in the second slot. However, the first doesn’t always work and the second deprives users of dual-SIM functionality.
Other than connectivity issues, OxygenOS 3.5.5 is also causing some other concerns such as night mode, color balance, and app lock functions not working. A few even complain that their OnePlus 2 charges slowly and gets very hot in the process.
GSMArena reports that OnePlus is currently looking into the cause of the network drops and has pulled the update. Owners should ideally wait until the company resolves the matter before upgrading to OxygenOS 3.5.5 right now.
