OnePlus One Update Fixes Multitouch and Adds New Features

We’re big fans of the OnePlus One here at TechnoBuffalo, but the Cyanogen-powered smartphone hasn’t worked out as well for everyone. A number of people have reported issues with multitouch on the device, and today the company is pushing out a new update that fixes the problem and adds a few new features as well.

The update, which is called XNPH38R, appears to fix multitouch, though like we said that hasn’t really been an issue in our own experience with the phone. It also adds a ton of smaller improvements that should offer a better experience overall, including the ability to take RAW format photos, better support for connecting to health and fitness tracking, a redesigned lockscreen and more. Here’s the full list of updates:

  • Added method for users to report bugs directly to Cyanogen.
  • Added pause button during video recording.
  • Improved battery life.
  • Fixed issues with camera exposure compensation stuck in ‘auto’.
  • Fixed issues with ‘4G Preferred’ option not connecting to 3G data.
  • Fixed issues with delay in torch activation.
  • Fixed issues with unresponsive screen requiring reboot.
  • Fixed issues with static in speaker when changing volume while headset plugged in.
  • Fixed issues with rotation not triggering when rotated slowly.
  • Fixed issues with Quiet Hours / system UI causing battery drain on last day of month.
  • Fixed issues with camera not starting when LED torch is already on.
  • Fixed issues with Bluetooth volume low on connection.

The new OnePlus One software is rolling out today in an over-the-air update, though it could be a few days before these new features hit your phone. If you just can’t wait that long XDA Developers already has a link to the update available, though it will take a bit more work to get the new software up and running.
