OnePlus updated the OnePlus 3 and 3T well over the two years with upgrades to Android Nougat and Android Oreo, but when they announced Android Pie for OnePlus 3 and 3T, we were surprised for good.
The announcement naturally excited the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users a lot, when the big Android 9 update rolled out the joy soon turned ominous for some users. Many have complained of experiencing slow device performance after the update. According to the complains, the device is lagging a lot on Android Pie, thus impacting performance on an otherwise speedy device.
How to fix the performance lag and sluggish UI on OnePlus 3 and 3T.
Here are some tricks to help you remove lag on Android Pie uu on your OnePlus 3 and 3T.
Here are two solutions that can fix the lag problem on the device once and for all:
Install the latest update (OxygenOS 9.0.3)
Make sure you have installed the latest update for your OnePlus 3/3T.
- Download the latest Android Pie update, version OxygenOS 9.0.3, on your device.
- How to install an update on your OnePlus 3 (The guide is for OnePlus 7 Pro but is same for the OnePlus 3T too.)
- If need be, factory reset the device (as given below) after installing OxygenOS 9.0.3.
Well, installing a custom ROM isn’t a bad idea. The devices are so old that you don’t risk losing the warranty anymore, so by unlocking the bootloader, you can install TWRP and use it to install a custom ROM of your choice to see the great benefits a ROM provides.
Given that custom ROMs will also bring — yes, we are sure! — support for Android Q, there is no harm in jumping the gun now than later.
