OnePlus 3 display color fix already in the works – here are the first pictures!
posted by Paul K. / Jun 23, 2016, 7:31 AM
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei had a bit too much of the criticism and vented some of his frustration for comments that the company cuts corners and builds its phones with cheap parts, which he claims is absolutely not the case. Then, he announced that the next OTA update will have a software re-calibration option to bring the display's colors more towards the sRGB standard.
Apparently, the team isn't kidding about this. A picture has been posted on the OnePlus forums, comparing the displays of a unit running a beta version of the upcoming patch against a regular OnePlus 3. And, despite the fact that this is probably not the final stage of recalibration, the effects are quite obvious – pictures are below.
The upcoming OTA update is also said to tame the aggressive task closing that the OnePlus 3 currently does. Despite the fact that the phone has a whopping 6 GB of RAM, it has been discovered that it tends to decimate apps from the background often, leading to a point where the community started coming up with tweaks to make use of the device's full RAM capacity.
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 3000 mAh

Will Phonearena correct the review score after update?

Good guy Victor! Honestly I wish 1+ sticked with an IPS LCD screen or get something cool like IPS NEO then Amoled. I like amoled, but then a pentile display could easily go to 1440p with hardly any compromise to battery life. Plus I like sharper text. We all know that optic amoled is all marketing bs, and sometimes I kinda hate when one plus does stuff like that. Like that one time they called the OP2 “2016 flagship killer "

Why it has a good score already even if they fix the screen I don't think it deserves a 9.

It's funny how all these Chinese newbie brands still have poor technology, but always talk big like they are the boss. Actually, Samsung sold them a quality AMOLED panel, and they modified it in order to claim that it's their own creativity, but finally it leads to a flaw, and they put a blame on Samsung. What a shameful manner! I think it's about time for people to stop believing their pathetic hype, I mean PRICE ISN'T EVERYTHING! What matters the most is to find out who is the king, the leader, or the REAL innovator at the moment, make a bet on them and then you won't be worried about liability like this.

why do you support samsung then? the company was founded on copying existing tech. so far, samsung has never re-invented a product or market. Samsung only copies the best existing tech and then starts to improve it. don't get me wrong, samsung does excellent tech but they always take it from others first to copy it.

Not quite sure what you meant by stealing and imitating Samsung's technology. I'm pretty sure Oneplus paid Samsung for their amoled screens :D. And if ur talking about design did u know that samsung acually copied the curved design from xiaomi's mi5? Chinese OEMs are trying to carve a niche of their own and IMO they should be commended for providing phoes with the best specs at an affordable price

I can buy two OnePlus 3 for the price of single Galaxy S7 Edge. It's getting too expensive for bleeding edge technology, no argument the S7 is a better phone but it's not twice the price better, no where near.

Twice the price? Where I live, you can get the S7 Edge plus Gear VR for $670. And I would rather pay $530 for the regular S7 than paying $400 OP3. It is an overhyped smartphone, the $500 Axon 7 is one of the best smartphones for it's price at the moment, that I would save few bucks and get it over an S7 Edge, not the OP3.

Canada: OnePlus 3 - $519 Galaxy S7 Edge - $999 Note *quite* half the price, but pretty darn close. (Note: I own an s& Edge and am quite happy with it. But had the OnePlus 3 been available at the time, that's almost certainly the route I would have gone). For good measure: Sony X Performance - $699 LG G5 - $749 HTC 10 - $899 Galaxy S7 - $899

Anandtech have re-tested with the new firmware and now it's now one of the most accurate displays on the market. Also multitasking appears to have been fixed. Users here have little faith I was chatting with a member of staff handling distribution here in the UK and they've under estimated demand here massively, for those who said it wouldn't sell, they couldn't be more wrong.
