Unfortunately, there's still no release frame to circle in the diary. But it's very encouraging to see Nougat actually running on the OnePlus 3, and hopefully, end users won't have to wait too long for the OTA.

And that would be a first, since they are usually the last when it comes to OS updates, especially when they only have one phone to update.

Maherk, I still cannot believe the OnePlus X is still only just now being updated to Marshmallow....MARSHMALLOW! An entire year after Marshmallow was officially released. And OnePlus X users won't even be getting Nougat, on a device that's just under a year old! I imagine the OnePlus fans will defend this by saying the X didn't sell as well as other OnePlus devices, but that's literally no excuse at all. All OnePlus customers should have been updated to the newest OS version as soon as possible, whether sales were poor or not.

I hear you, and that's why I laugh when people bring up Samsung's poor record when it comes to updates but decide to remain silent when it is OP, LG, or any other OEM not named HTC. I am not giving a pass to Samsung by any means, they suck at delivering their updates, and not just they are usually late, but their tens of model numbers for each phone makes it even harder for us users to keep track on when we should receive our updates.

Wasn't there news that due to lack of Nougat drivers from Qualcomm's side, phones with SD800/801 will not be updated to Nougat? Doesn't change the fact that Marshmallow took too long.

I have a Oneplus One. Trust Me, when Oneplus 4 comes out, OP3 software updates will lag. We know that because of Snapdragon, OPO and OPX won't get Nougat. In India, A new Operator came up with all 4G Network, so to use this network, you need to have VoLTE. OP3 supports it out of box. Snapdragon 801 supports VoLTE, but needs a software update to enable that. They announced that they won't releasing a patch to OPO and OPX to support VoLTE, and even for OP2, they would do it in another quatrter(for sure they would delay that also). I thought of upgrading Oneplus one to OP3, but this attitude of theirs towards older devices software upgrades stopped from doing that. You would get good support from community because their bootloaders are unlocked, that would mean you need to compromise on Camera performance. Anyone buying OP3, keep in mind the possibility of laggy or no software updates.

Whats so good about 7.0? I can call text do everything on 6.0. Every updates cripples the phone. Like it did too my S7 with 2 updates. Battery drainage and other bugs. It was excellent out from the box. Especially the long lasting battery. F kn pos Samsung and oppo. I rooted and revert back to old Rom.

That's mistake of Samsung botching up update, not of 7.0
