OnePlus 8T Review: The T upgrade that makes sense

OnePlus mentions that this update is aimed at fixing an NFC related issue along with improving call stability. You can read the whole changelog below, which seems to be pretty much identical to the last stable build (except for those two fixes).

    • Optimized the call stability
    • Improved system power consumption performance to reduce heating
    • Improved mis-touch prevention to offer better gaming experience
    • Optimized fluidity with some mainstream games to reduce lagging risks
    • Optimized user experience with Alert Slider by adding toast messages when switching among the 3 modes
    • Fixed the issue that the status bar kept hovering on the screen in landscape mode
    • Fixed the issue that NFC cannot be turned on in a small probability
  • Camera
    • Optimized the imaging effect to bring you with better shooting experience
    • Improved camera stability
  • Network
    • Optimized mobile network connection to improve the network intensity with signal
    • Fixed the small probability issue with network interruption while playing games
