OxygenOS 3.2.0 update (OP3) that was supposed to fix RAM issues now pulled


The OnePlus 3 is certainly heavy on specs with a hefty 6GB of RAM. However, the software that it’s currently shipping with has been known to not take full advantage of the hardware.

The issue was to be solved with the OxygenOS 3.2.0 update which actually started seeding to users in the past 12 hours or so. It has now been learnt that the update has since been pulled.

According to OnePlus, the OTA was pulled ‘due to some reports of issues while upgrading’. We don’t quite know what that means, but OnePlus 3 users will surely be left dejected.

Three of the most important fixes that the update brought with it included the addition of sRGB mode, GPS fixes, and the all-important RAM fixes. The full changelog of the update is as below:

  • Enabled sRGB mode in developer options.
  • Improved RAM management.
  • Improved GPS performance.
  • Enhanced audio playback quality.
  • Updated custom icon packs.
  • Fixed some issues with notifications.
  • Improved camera quality/functionality.
  • Fixed some issues in Gallery.
  • Implemented latest Google security patches.
  • Fixed bugs in Clock/Music apps.

There’s no word on when the update will be back live. In related news, the OnePlus 3 just got costlier for buyers in the UK.

    Goes to show that you can`t put all that RAM in there with nothing to fill it.
    Anyway OP3 is a great phone, and it should not stop buyers from getting it, only downside is that the battery life could be better.

      Well… a simple edit of build.prop fixed it even before 3.1.2 (or 3.1.3 — not to mention the current 3.2.0) came out.
      I even set the limit a little bit higher than in 3.2.0 (default 32 — I set 42 which is a perfect balance for 1,5GB to be free at all times).

    To be honest this isn’t major news, even apple have pulled updates that causes issues after releasing iphones. I will probably get a oneplus 3 as price wise it cant really be beaten and seems like a solid performer.

      there are already phones with similar specs to price range that either matches oneplus 3 or beats it

        Like what? The Zuk Z2 pro costs close to $500 for international customers, the ZTE AXON 7 costs over $500. Name me another SD820 device that can compete with the oneplus 3 on price and spec.

          oh so the oneplus 3 isnt international to you? because where i am even the oneplus 3 is hitting the 450 to 500 dollar mark, but for an exact spec match to price we have the leeco lemax 2.. but maybe your from india? because for me to shop the zuk and oneplus 3 etc all tie in for the same price, and i would speculate that the zenfone 3 deluxe will come in around the same price as well for me at least since im an international buyer by defualt for all phones

            Over here in UK oneplus 3 is $400. LeEco lemax looks ok but it has slower fast charge, worse camera, no headphone jack. missing LTE bands, less storage than OP3.

              I also bought the OP3 for 399EUR (incl. tax and shipping).
              Lemax 2 –> 5.7″ (my max is 5,5), no audio jack (a clear no-go), QHD (I mean…. for what?? eats into the battery only)… and an IPS display…. I saw sAMOLED and I loved it from the first look/touch.

              You can’t compare the LeMax 2 with OP3.

        Ye… Like what? Quite a bold claim there…

    Rocking the 3.2.0 update on mine since two days and it is flawless. I’ve noticed none of the assumed issues.
