Android 7.1.1 Is Here For OnePlus 3 and 3T Users

OnePlus released the beta for their newest OS version, OxygenOS 4, to the public at the end of March. This beta offered the first look at Android 7.1.1 to OnePlus 3 and 3T Users.

A few minutes ago I received a notification to download a system update on my OnePlus 3T. Now it’s ready to install so let’s see what it will do.

Like I mentioned in my post about the Google Assistant arriving to Android 6 and 7 phones, this update to OxygenOS 4 is yet another step closer to making the OnePlus 3T equal to Google’s Pixel but for a fraction of the cost.

Post-Installation

The first thing I’ve noticed is the home screen is now a 5 x 5 grid versus a 4 x 5 grid before. Apps still show in a 4 x 5 grid in the app drawer. This also means neither the home screen nor the app drawer are customizable to different grid sizes.

Another change to the home screen is how the home screen settings are shown. “Customize” used to include both the icon size/design and the gestures (shelf, up and down).

Well, “customize” now only allows changing the icon size and shape. Turning on the shelf, enabling swiping down for the notifications tray, and swiping up for a shortcut to a Google search are now split into a fourth option:  “settings”.

The last change I’ve been able to observe is the change to screenshots.
