Android Oreo reaches final build for OnePlus 3 and 3T

OnePlus 5T shows toughness in a series of grueling durability tests

You'd be right to think that flagships should get Android OS updates first. It's the first Android OS update for smartphones. There hasn't been any significant leap in hardware over the past 6 months, so what the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T both pack is pretty much still top-of-the-line - a Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM. It's worth pointing out that the changelog for the final build is similar as the open beta released in October for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The upgrade brings along a great number of new features.

You may have seen blogposts from OnePlus confirming the arrival and Rollout of the OxygenOS 5.0, which is going to be available for the company's OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones.

OnePlus 5T, Samsung Galaxy S8, or LG G6- that's not a comparison I thought I'd be making by the end of the year, yet here we are. Autofill and Smart text selection features have also been added. Also included in the Oreo update is the security patch for September. After that the company will make the OnePlus 5T available through flash sales beginning from November 28. Users will also notice a change in the design of the app folders and new notification dots. Unfortunately, OnePlus even confirms that this Android Oreo 8.0 based update will be the last software update for the 2016 flagship phones (OnePlus 3 series) from the company. The phones will receive firm's security updates on a regular basis so you don't need to worry about the security of your phone. The all-out-roll-out will start in a couple of days.

Talking about connectivity options, the OnePlus 5T brings 4G VoLTE, dual-band (2.4GHz, 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11ac with MIMO 2×2, Bluetooth v5.0 with aptX and aptX HD, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C (v2.0) port.

So if you had $500 to spend on a new phone, which would you choose?
