When you buy a OnePlus 3 device you know just what you are buying. You pay out your $400 and you don’t get official updates that are very reliable. However if you wanted robust developer support you are in for a treat.
You really don’t have to worry about when Android 7 Nougat comes out for the OnePlus as you can turn your attention to the developer Sultanxda to offer up updates for the device.
He was the one that was behind the custom version of Android 6 Marshmallow for the OnePlus One. The update brought with it some superb improvements, mainly to the battery life of the device and the performance of the camera. While he skipped past the OnePlus 2, the developer has come back for the OnePlus 3.
Sultanxda has offered CyanogenMod CM13 custom ROM for the latest handset and the community for the OnePlus has gone mad. The update brings with it some changes and some owners have said that the battery life has been boosted a lot.
XDA said that owners should be able to get about 6 to 8 hours of on screen battery life and he update has also improved thermal efficiency of the OnePlus 3 as the handset does get hot when it is stretched.
