For the disappointment part, we could actually argue that. [Hehe]
A phone that is barely 2 years old won’t be getting the Android 7 that was released last year, 2016?
Ah!!! [My chest] – It’s giving me heart attack already.
The Chinese company has just made an official confirmation that its very own OnePlus 2 won’t get the Android 7 (Nougat) Update.
These were their words
“Customer service has been telling customers this for a little while, we’re happy about what we’re doing with software. We already confirmed Android O will come for the OnePlus 3 and 3T.
So [no Nougat for the OnePlus 2] isn’t new and we think people were aware of it.”
Answering to the letdown, the phone manufacturer said:
When we built the OnePlus 2 we didn’t have the software infrastructure team in place we do now.
Though I heard OnePlus is pretty much the only company that allows you to unlock your bootloader, flash custom recoveries, root, and flash third-party ROMs, and not void your warranty.
It’s difficult to believe MORE.
Come to think of it, the only major update the OnePlus 2 got was that from Android 5.1 to 6.0.
For Christ sake, no one will buy a phone that is likened to go into extinction within a year. Would you?
I thought as much…
A consumer who felt disappointed on hearing this said.
I was planned to buy one plus 5, and now i think i should go to Xperia XZ. Dear one plus, first of all, find a good software team to bring latest updates to your flagships. Then we will buy one plus
If you’re seeing this as a letdown and a reason not to buy the OnePlus 5 (which will soon be unveiled), try flipping to the other side of the coin. By not giving the OnePlus 2 Nougat, folks would see more reason the choose the OnePlus 5 which would definitely come with Nougat out of the box
But could it be that they’re less concerned about the OP2?
