OnePlus 2 Android update: Oxygen OS 2.1.0 Is Here

OnePlus 2 Android update: Oxygen OS 2.1.0 Is Here
The OnePlus 2 Android update to Oxygen OS 2.1.0 has started rolling out over-the-air (OTA). Though it's going to take a while to arrive to all devices, you can flash the update yourself right now via the link at the bottom. Read on for details of the latest OnePlus 2 Android update.

    Forget 2.0.2, Oxygen OS 2.1.0 is rolling out now. The Oxygen 2.1.0 update was announced via the OnePlus forums, with the following improvements:
    OnePlus-2-Android-update:-Oxygen-OS 2.1.0-Is-Here
    • Manual camera mode
    • Raw support for 3rd party camera apps
    • Color balance slider in Display settings for adjusting the color tone of the screen. (A feature recently seen on the Huawei Mate S)
    • Added Exchange support
    • Fixes for problems with popular 3rd party apps
    • Telephony service improvements so you no longer "lag" when you turn airplane mode on or off
    • Other bug fixes and improvements
    While these updates are welcome, it's unclear whether they cover some of the issues we were expecting. Several problems have been reported as a result of installing the previous update, Oxygen OS 2.0.2, including battery drain, fingerprint scanner issues, poor quality images from the front-facing camera, and broken third-party camera apps.
    While the latter has been fixed, and manual mode could improve the front-facing camera quality, we'll have to wait to see whether the other problems have been fully addressed. You can download the Oxygen OS 2.1.0 zip file here to flash the update yourself, should you wish to do so.
    Have you had any problems with the OnePlus 2? What additions do you want to see in Oxygen OS 2.1? Let us know in the comments.
