OnePlus 5 update to be released after 911 reboot bug discoveredBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 20 July 2017 | Categories: news
Earlier this week, worrying reports from several OnePlus 5 owners noted that the device would reboot whenever 911 was dialled on the device. To their credit, the Chinese company has acted swiftly, with an impending update for the flagship phone set to rollout to devices in coming days.
