Summary

Some companies, OnePlus included, have been involved in the Android 11 beta program, but this is the first stable release outside of Pixel phones.Further ReadingOnePlus 8 Pro review—The best flagship of 2020, even if it is more expensiveFor OnePlus, Android 11 also brings a rev of its Android skin, and the headline inclusion is that after years of complaints, the company is finally adding an always-on display mode to its smartphones. You can set the always-on display to only run on a schedule (so it can turn off at night) or turn it off completely, if you're not OK with the minimal battery drain the feature creates.All the Android 11 features are here, too, like a new persistent media player notification that lives in the quick settings, one-time permissions, new emojis, keyboard auto-fill, bubble support, and a notification history.Now the remaining big issue we need to beat out of OnePlus is monthly security updates instead of just bi-monthly security updates.Listing image by Ron AmadeoYou must login or create an account to comment.Join the Ars Orbital Transmission mailing list to get weekly updates delivered to your inbox.
