Back in April, OnePlus released the much-anticipated Android Pie update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T as community beta build. In May, the second community beta builds pushed to the devices with some bug fixes. In the same month, the company released stable Android 9 Pie update as OxygenOS 9.0.2 for both OnePlus 3 and 3T.

After installing the stable Android 9 Pie update, many OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users reporting issues like system lags, camera issues, call screen issue, and fingerprint unlocking issues on company’s community forum. Though a bug fixing OxygenOS 9.0.3 update released for both devices, it did not fix the most of the issues listed.



OnePlus may fix all these issues with a software update in the coming days. In the meantime, here is a temporary fix for all the issues related to OnePlus 3 and 3T Android 9 Pie update.
