Update to OnePlus X starts rolling out; no, it's not Marshmallow
Back in November, OnePlus said that the OnePlus X would be updated to Android 6.0 along with the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2. Today, an update has started rolling out to the OnePlus X, but it is not Android 6.0. Instead, the phone is receiving Oxygen 2.2.2 which includes new features, bug fixes and some enhancements. The manufacturer says that it is still working on the Marshmallow update for the "X."

When your OnePlus X receives the update to Oxygen 2.2.2, you will see a notification on your handset. At that point, before you start the process of downloading and installing the new files, you need to make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network and are using a battery that has been fully charged. Because Oxygen 2.2.2 is being disseminated OTA on a staggered basis, it might not hit your phone for a few days yet. If you're impatient, you can try to coax the update out of your phone manually by going to Settings > About phone > System update > Check for update.

The changelist for Oxygen 2.2.2 includes:

  • Upgraded camera to version 1.4 UI
  • Improved camera frame rate performance
  • Added trusted face unlock security option
  • Updated Swiftkey to version 6.3.3
  • Updated carrier name mapping
  • Added July security patches
  • Fixed default SIM card selection issue
  • Fixed network operator selection issue
  • Fixed screen rotation issue
  • General improvements and bug fixes

The update weighs in the neighborhood of 325MB.

Thinking about picking one of these up as a compact phone. Any issues of note fellow 1+X owners?

You are better off getting a Z3 compact than a OPX. they are both around the same price after all.

How about a Galaxy Alpha? So sexy.

Galaxy Alpha hasn't even got Marshmallow yet and when it does, it will get the old and sh*tty Touchwiz. Might need a custom rom on the Alpha

My mom had a galaxy alpha and it was a great pone, until the antennas started messing up on it and the signal randomly cutting out. So I can't recommend it.

Still no marshmallow!? I'm sure glad my older OnePlus One isn't dependent on OnePlus for software support. Then again, doubt the people who bought this care about updates, probably more budget conscious or as a backup device.

I've got one (along with my S7 Edge) and love it! It's just a brilliant piece of engineering really. Software side fort thing I did was to install CyanogenMod 13 w/Android 6.0.1 and it got blazingly fast! I can hardly notice any difference in loading apps and multitasking compared to my S7 Edge. Really recommend this little gem of a budget phone.
