Wonder why the OnePlus 5 was rebooting when dialing 911? Here is the official explanation


Many OnePlus 5 owners reported last week issues with their phones when trying to dial emergency numbers. Even though the problem did not affect all OnePlus 5 devices, it was a wide spread issue.

The issue was spotted sometime at the beginning of the last week when some OnePlus 5 owners tried to call 911 or 999 and their smartphones rebooted. A few of them were able to replicate the issue and even capture it on video.

A few days later, OnePlus released a small update that fixed the issue for OnePlus 5 devices. Today, the Chinese company issued a statement explaining how and why its flagship was affected by the problem


Luckily, Qualcomm was willing to work with OnePlus to deliver a fix for the issue as quickly as possible, which is why the software update was released last Friday, not long after reports starting to pile up.
