The flagship phone OnePlus 3 is getting a lot of attention lately due to the frequent updates to its operating system. The software development team is working hard on making the device desirable to the users. A new update is rolling out for the OnePlus 3 with the Oxygen OS version 3.2.4. Not many manufacturers release software updates and fixes so frequently. This new update brings hotfix patch and fixes the auto reboot issue that some of the users are facing. It also improves the call quality and brings several other carrier optimizations. The previous Oxygen OS versions brought critical software updates to optimize the RAM management, improve camera quality, and much more. With this new hotfix patch, the former flagship killer phone has become even more likable. Moreover, OnePlus has already updated the OP 3 with the latest AOSP security patch with the Oxygen OS 2.2.2. You can check the full changelog from below and from the previous Oxygen OS 3.2.2 update tutorial as well.

Though some of the users have been facing new issues like network lock for 4G LTE not being stable, meaning, it automatically switches to 3G or 2G. This could be a network error though and we are not certain about it at this moment. However, we will keep you updated if more such bugs are reported. Another issue is that the FPS gets activated when the message, “Pocket mode is on” is displayed.
