Android Oreo update lands on OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T

If you’re struggling to resist moving from a OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 3T to a OnePlus 5T, today’s news might make it a better easier, as the OnePlus 3 and 3T are now being upgraded to Android Oreo.

The over the air update actually gives you OxygenOS 5.0, which is Android Oreo plus some of the company’s own additions.

Highlights include ‘Parallel Apps’, which is a feature that lets you clone certain apps so you can log in with more than one account.

You’ll also get picture-in-picture mode, auto fill, smart text selection and notification dots (a dot that appears over app icons when you have a notification related to them).

Plus there’s a new design for app folders and Quick Settings, you can upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus and you’ll get September’s security patch.

Older hardware, newer software

The Oreo update is being rolled out incrementally, so you may have to wait a few days to get it, but that still gives you an advantage over OnePlus 5 and even OnePlus 5T owners, as both of those phones are currently running Android Nougat, though they will be getting Android Oreo in the coming months.

8 ways to turn Android into a productivity powerhouse

Android now accounts for the vast majority of commercial smartphone shipments, according to market intelligence firm IDC, with more than two-thirds of all global enterprise-oriented purchases in the first quarter of 2017. Out of the box, though, a typical Android phone is anything but optimized for productivity.

Power up most popular phones, and you’ll find ineffective home screens, mediocre keyboards and all sorts of untapped potential. But all it takes is a little tweaking to go from unrefined gizmo to finely tuned work companion.

Follow these eight steps, and your Android phone will be primed for productivity and ready for business.

1. Optimize your home screen

One of the simplest and most impactful ways to improve your phone’s effectiveness is to focus on its foundation: the home screen. Your home screen is the first thing you see when you unlock your device, and it’s the launching point for practically everything you do. Yet for most people, it’s a cluttered and inefficient mess — and that, suffice it to say, is counterproductive.

It helps to think of your home screen as a toolbox. If you were preparing to perform a home repair job, you’d want to be able to find the tools you use the most with a minimal amount of thought and effort. Were your toolbox a disorganized mess, you’d waste valuable time digging around every time you opened it.

Your home screen is no different. And unlike iOS, Android doesn’t limit you to a static grid of square icons. You can lay things out in any way that works best for you, employing a mix of app shortcuts, widgets and — critically — blank space.

How to properly secure your Android to keep snoops out

For others out there, I’m sure there’s a different reason why their gadget’s security (or lack thereof) doesn’t cause them to lose sleep at night. It’s probably because they’re not aware of just how many threats are out there that can impact Android tablets and smartphones. For example, did you know there’s currently a mobile wireless flaw that allows hackers to pinpoint your exact location? And that’s just the beginning. Click here to discover more security risks every smartphone user should be aware of.

Lock your device properly

This seems obvious. Although it may place one extra step between you and your gadget’s content, it also adds a barrier for an unwanted visitor.

There are multiple ways to lock your Android device, including passwords, patterns, fingerprints and PINS. Most of these options offer great protection, however, we don’t recommend that you use a pattern. This is because patterns are much easier to guess or crack since your fingers leave smudges on the screen that can be traced back by hackers.

We also don’t recommend that you use any type of facial recognition as a security measure, especially since this feature on the Galaxy S8s can be fooled by holding a photo of you in front of your phone’s camera.

While we’re talking about lock screens, there’s also another related setting you should probably avoid. It’s called “Smart Lock On-body detection,” and it basically leaves your phone unlocked whenever it’s on your person. Which won’t be a problem unless you get pickpocketed. If someone can snatch your gadget from your back pocket or backpack, you’ve basically just given them free access to everything you have stored on it.
