- The OnePlus limitation controversy now has a solution: a built-in performance toggle.
- The toggle will allow users to control whether “performance optimizations” are enabled or disabled.
- Unfortunately, the feature won’t be part of Oxygen OS until Android 12 rolls out.
OnePlus has heard the answer and has a solution: a simple toggle switch that turns the feature on or off. The company said Android Police that it will deploy this new feature in Oxygen OS 12, which is based on the upcoming Android 12.
The company’s statement on this is below.
OnePlus limitation solution statement
Since different chips work differently and we want to make sure we get the best performance and efficiency from each, we have implemented performance optimizations to varying degrees on the OnePlus 9R and Nord 2. However, given the clear feedback from users and the media. , our R&D team is currently working on adding an option allowing users to activate / deactivate this optimized mode and have better control over the performance of their phones. We aim to prepare this solution with one of the first versions of OxygenOS 12.
As you can see from the statement, the just launched OnePlus Nord 2 will have app optimizations similar to the OnePlus 9 series. Again, that means you won’t see the full power of the MediaTek dimension 1200 when using certain applications. however, our opinion shows that this could be a good thing, as the Dimensity 1200 eats away at battery life and heats up considerably when left unchecked.
Obviously, all of this OnePlus limitation controversy could have been avoided had the company just introduced this toggle in the first place. But better late than never, eh? Hopefully, the company will deliver Oxygen OS 12 to the majority of its 2021 phones before the end of this year.
