Here's why you should wait for the OnePlus 9's OxygenOS 12 update

For both the company and its customers, OnePlus’s bespoke Android version was a source of pride. Even though it didn’t use CyanogenMod, it didn’t have a lot of customizations, and the improvements that OnePlus made on top were well accepted and widely sought. OxygenOS, on the other hand, has recently started to become more of a liability than an advantage, and the purportedly stable OyxgenOS 12 update for the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro did a lot of damage to its reputation. OnePlus is releasing an update to fix some of the vulnerabilities, but it doesn’t address all the ColorOS-based variant issues.

Although OnePlus’ Android flavor isn’t based on any existing custom ROM, it takes pleasure in having Paranoid Android devs at its helm. For years, OxygenOS felt like a true Android experience, one that was tailored to the needs of its customers, even incorporating user feedback. While numerous smartphone firms claim to have done so, OnePlus is likely the only one who can prove it.

That proof came in the form of an Always-on Display feature, which OnePlus had previously opposed. OnePlus subsequently caved in with certain caveats after the user community decided to change the company’s decision. Although the implementation and rollout of this feature weren’t flawless, it demonstrated that OnePlus was prepared to bend to customer demands.

Today’s OnePlus, on the other hand, might be a different firm, especially now that its R&D and software teams have merged with those of its cousin OPPO. OyxgenOS would eventually be based on OPPO’s ColorOS, which is being blamed for the buggy OxygenOS 12 launch for the OnePlus 9 series. OnePlus has resumed the process with a more functional version of its Android skin after removing the previous upgrade.

Some of the issues from the previously broken update are included in the revised OxygenOS 12 changelog. This covers issues with mobile data usage, screen issues, and notifications that aren’t displayed. Other improvements are stated, but some are oddly lacking from the list.

For example, the ability to use Google Camera mods hasn’t been fixed yet, and it may never be fixed because ColorOS has the same constraint. It could be a good idea to wait a little longer for individuals who rely on these apps. It could be a good idea to wait a few more days, if not weeks, to check if the upgrade is truly stable before diving in.
