A minor optimisation update is now rolling out to the 2-day-old OnePlus 5T, the latest flagship killer from OnePlus. The update, OxygenOS 4.7.2, includes what appear to be a final coat of paint for the device in software terms; meaning if you've got your hands on a OnePlus 5T already, this is an update that's definitely worth installing.
The update is 107MB in size and includes a selection of improvements and optimisations. To begin with, the changelog cites optimisations for both fingerprint unlocking and facial recognition – something which is likely going to contribute heavily to a great out of the box experience. As facial unlocking is a new addition to the OnePlus line of devices, it makes sense that they would wish to optimise it as much as possible.
Aside from that, there are other notable improvements; electronic image stabilization (or EIS) during 4K video recording has been improved and should perform better, and screen-off gestures should be registered more accurately. Furthermore, the infamous KRACK WiFI vulnerability, which we have covered previously, has been patched in this build, meaning this update is pretty important if you value keeping your data secure when connected to WiFi.
