OnePlus 7T: Common Problems and How You Can Fix Them
7T, the flagship device from OnePlus, is perhaps one of the best android phones currently available in the market. It comes with Android 10 and an upgraded Oxygen OS built for an immersive experience. Yet customers have been facing glitches and bugs in the device since the day of its release. While OnePlus has provided exceptional support and updates to fix these bugs, finding them in the labyrinth that is the internet can be quite challenging. So, we have compiled a list of the 10 most common OnePlus 7T issues and what you can do to fix them.
Problems with Display Tint
Display problems in OnePlus devices have been a common occurrence since their first release. In OnePlus 7T, the issues are more severe and have to be fixed by the company itself. If you notice a tint on your screen especially when using dark mode, it’s time to wait for the official channels to find a fix for the glitch. However, if you are facing the issue of a flickering screen, it might be because of the 90Hz refresh rate. You can reduce the default 90Hz by going to Settings > Display and reverting to 60Hz. Reducing the refresh rate also improves overall battery life and reduces the strain on your eyes. The flipside of this is that the 90Hz display makes your screen feel more impressive as compared 60Hz.
Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues
Wi-Fi issues are mainly due to the misconfiguration of the router or overloaded Wi-Fi networks on your device. Customers have reported not being able to connect to Wi-Fi networks in the vicinity. By resetting the network card on your device, you can easily fix any connectivity issues. To reset your network go to Settings >Wi-Fi and then forget your Wi-Fi network. Once you reconnect to the Wi-Fi after this reset, your connectivity issues should be resolved.
Touch screen Issues
Pro gamers and PUBG players have complained about touch screen issues while playing on OnePlus 7T. The complaint is that multitouch gestures do not work. While there is no solution to the problem yet, some players have reported that the problem can be fixed temporarily by resetting the device to factory defaults. If you’re facing similar issues, try resetting your device after taking a backup of all your data. This should improve the detection of multitouch.
Problems with Fingerprint Scanner
The fingerprint scanner in OnePlus 7T is under the screen. Not only does it make the device look and function beautifully but also offers efficiency in design and functionality. Some users have reported problems with fingerprint detection. This can be easily resolved by cleaning your screen and trying to unlock the phone once again with clean hands.
Bluetooth Connectivity Problems
Numerous users have reported issues on the OnePlus forum while trying to connect their OnePlus devices to their car audio systems via Bluetooth. To fix the problem, first disconnect your Bluetooth device. Then reset your Bluetooth connections by unpairing all paired devices. Now reconnect with your car’s Bluetooth and pair the devices.
Battery Heating Problems
Battery heating is primarily due to excessive resource usage on the system. To reduce battery usage, determine the apps that are running in the background and ‘force stop’ all of them. Your device screen should be the highest energy and resource consuming app. Ensure that all background apps that take up more resources are uninstalled. You can also reduce the brightness of the screen and reduce the auto-lock time to save battery and reduce the heating problem a little bit.
Internet and Network Issues
Users may face problems connecting to their cellular network which can hamper their experience while calling or texting. One way to resolve this is to reset your network using the following steps.
1. Open Settings.
2. Tap System >Reset Options >Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth.
3. Tap RESET SETTINGS.
Another way is to disable the SIM cards and enable them again. Also, make sure that you have set the correct APN settings.
Issues with Camera
Some users have reported facing issues while trying to use the camera when NFC is enabled. In some cases, users are unable to take pictures or record videos with NFC running in the background. You can resolve these problems by disabling the NFC using the following steps.
1. Tap on “Settings.”
2. In the dashboard, you can find “more” tap on it to proceed further.
3. You can find NFC listed in the section, and tap on it to access the ON/OFF button.
4. Tap on the button to disable the NFC
If this does not work for your device, it is advisable to wait for the latest updates to the app and the OS which should fix existing problems.
