OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 4.5.3 update promises to fix Wi-Fi connectivity issues


OnePlus is quite fast when it comes to addressing bugs affecting its high-end smartphones. The same can't be said about its older OnePlus phones, which won't be getting any new major Android OS updates.

We reported earlier today that many OnePlus 5 owners complain of Wi-Fi connectivity issues. It appears that when covering the antenna band on the top right with your hand (or a case), the Wi-Fi signal drops to just 2 bars while using the 2.4GHz band.

Reports about the issue started to pop up soon after OnePlus opened sales for its flagship killer, but the Chinese company had already released a first update that many thought it would address the Wi-Fi connectivity problem.

Well, it looks like OnePlus has just released a second update that's been specifically built to fix the Wi-Fi connectivity issue. OxygenOS 4.5.3 is now pushed OTA to all OnePlus 5 devices around the globe, and here is what's changed.

  • Expanded screenshot display issue;
  • Google Translate stutters;
  • Wi-Fi occasional drops;
  • System stability improvements;
  • Camera effect and stability enhancements;
  • Effects of auto-brightness adjustment;
  • Accuracy of data usage statistics.

One other thing worth noting is that an issue is still affecting the OnePlus 5 on the T-Mobile network. It appears that T-Mobile customers in the U.S. can't use WeChat and Pokemon GO, so they will need to reconfigure their APN settings. More details about that can be found at the source link.
