In a recent post on the OnePlus community forum, user XTRSpartex raised concerns about the OnePlus 11 OxygenOS 13.1 update, highlighting several bugs that have been causing inconvenience to users. The community member’s feedback has sparked discussions among OnePlus enthusiasts, drawing attention to the need for prompt bug fixes and improvements.
OnePlus 11 Battery Drain, Video Contrast, and Missing Features
One of the prominent issues reported by XTRSpartex is the battery drain problem, which appears to vary from user to user. Following the installation of the OxygenOS 13.1 update, many OnePlus 11 owners have experienced a significant drop in screen-on time (SOT), ranging from 9-10 hours down to 6-7 hours. This decrease of approximately 30% in battery life compared to the previous A.10 update has raised concerns among users who rely on their devices for extended periods.
Additionally, the video contrast issue has been another bug plaguing OnePlus 11 users after the 13.1 update. While the update boasts improved stabilization, night videos suffer from faded colors and lack of detail. Users have expressed frustration over the inability to capture true black, as the camera seems to grey it out without proper AI enhancement. This issue affects the overall video quality and hampers the user experience in low-light environments.
Furthermore, XTRSpartex pointed out an irritating anomaly that occurs when attempting to use a floating window in landscape mode. If the floating app is encrypted, the screen color inexplicably changes to a blue tint, and the device switches to portrait mode to record the fingerprint. This unexpected behavior disrupts the workflow and presents a usability concern for OnePlus 11 users relying on floating windows for multitasking purposes.
Another point raised by XTRSpartex pertains to missing flagship features in the 13.1 update. Users have expressed disappointment over the absence of features such as 4K 60fps video recording on the ultrawide lens and 4K 120fps on the main lens. These features were available on previous OnePlus devices like the 10 Pro and 9 Pro, leading users to question why they were removed. Additionally, users have noted that the selfie camera is still limited to 1080p resolution, despite the OnePlus 11 housing a 16 MP front-facing camera that should be capable of capturing 4K videos.
OnePlus, known for its commitment to user feedback and timely updates, is expected to address these issues promptly. The company has a strong track record of actively engaging with the community and releasing bug fixes and feature updates to enhance the user experience. Users are hopeful that OnePlus will listen to their concerns and provide a swift resolution to the problems encountered in the 13.1 update.
As OnePlus takes note of these reported bugs and user feedback, OnePlus 11 owners eagerly anticipate a future update that will rectify the battery drain issue, improve video contrast, resolve the floating window anomaly, and reinstate the missing flagship features. In the meantime, community members continue to share their experiences and suggestions on the OnePlus forum, fostering an environment of collaboration and support.
OnePlus has yet to provide an official statement regarding the reported bugs and missing features in the 13.1 update for the OnePlus 11. Users are advised to stay tuned to the official OnePlus channels for any announcements or updates regarding bug fixes and improvements to the OxygenOS.
