How to Rollback any OnePlus Nord Smartphone running OxygenOS 13 to OxygenOS 12

Most people are using the OnePlus Nord series smartphones with OxygenOS 13 based on Android 13. But some users are not liking Oxygen OS

This is due to the Following:

OnePlus OxygenOS merged with Oppo ColorOS: OnePlus Nord 2 was the first device that comes with ColorOS Camera and the first time The Camera app in OnePlus Smartphone is asking for Permissions. After this ColorOS is completely added to OxygenOS and due to this most people experienced so many bugs and are not getting the performance they expect with this Merger. The Gaming Experience is not so much good in OOS 13 as compared to 12 and 11.

Line issues on Display:  Most people are facing line issues on their smartphones such as Green Line, and Pink Line issues after updating to OxygenOS 12 and 13. The only solution to remove the green line and Pink line issue is to replace the display. If you don’t have any dents, scratches, or any physical damage on your device. Then your display can be replaced Free of cost. If you want to know, Why you are getting these line issues then, check out this video Why Display line issues in OnePlus phones?

ColorOS Browser: With OnePlus 11R, OnePlus who said that you can get a bloatware-free experience is now introducing Bloatwares like ColorOS Browser which we get in Oppo’s ColorOS. Maybe in the future, we got more Bloatwares. This is also a big reason to hate OOS nowadays.

One another reason for not liking OxygenOS is the ColorOS Launcher: Most people are not liking the ColorOS Launcher present in OOS 12 and OOS 13. As it is lack in  Customization and Hidden Space has changed to Private Safe. You can access Hidden Space from App Drawer but after the implementation of ColorOS Launcher users are not able to access it using the app drawer. They have to access Private Safe using Dialer by typing the code.

Battery: The Screen On Time or we can say (S.O.T) is not ao much good if we compare it to OxygenOS 11 or 12. The device will also take more time to charge as compared to 11 or 12.

Gaming: Most people are not satisfied with the Gaming Performance. Some are getting Lag and Heating issues. This all is just because of the Codebase of ColorOS merged with OxygenOS and after 13 it’s completely ColorOS.
