Access Stock Do Not Disturb functionality on the OnePlus 6/5T/5/3T/3

The alert slider on OnePlus phones is one of the features that sets them apart from other phones. However, the alert slider on the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5, and OnePlus 5T works differently than the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 5/OnePlus 5T get OxygenOS Beta 14/12 with Google Lens mode and camera fixes

Historically, OnePlus has not been exactly good when it comes to system updates. After all, this is the company that prematurely dropped support for their older flagship, the OnePlus 2, as well as the OnePlus X, by not officially releasing Android 7.0 Nougat for them---despite past promises. As of recently, however, they have proved to have...

How to enable higher quality screenshots on the OnePlus 6/5T/5 [Root]

The OnePlus 6 is certainly a stellar device, but it's not perfect. One minor issue with its software, known as OxygenOS, is that screenshots are saved in the compressed JPEG format, rather than the Android-default PNG. It's nice for saving space, but especially in scrolling screenshots, there can be a big drop off in quality....

Project Treble is still a relatively new development for Android. After all, it was first introduced with Android Oreo and only devices launching with Android 8.0 and newer are required to be Treble-compatible out of the box.

Now, they're doing...

Enable always-on OTG on the OnePlus 6/5T/5/3T/3 running OxygenOS

OTG is a very useful feature for many as it can allow you to transfer data over your device's micro USB or USB-C port. You can hook up a hard drive, play games with a controller, or listen to music. Some device manufacturers specifically allow it, and OnePlus is one of them. One of the...
