Why OxygenOS is a Favorite for Its Speed and Simplicity



OxygenOS 14 based Android 14

OxygenOS has a more loyal fanbase for its cleanliness and productivity. It always gives a stock Android feeling experience which attracted many people to buy OnePlus phones for a Fast and fluid Experience

OxygenOS began its life as a clean and fast alternative to CyanogenMod, the custom ROM used on early OnePlus devices. Born from the ashes of a failed partnership, OxygenOS quickly established itself as a fan favorite, offering a near-stock Android experience with just enough customization to satisfy power users.

Through various major updates, OxygenOS introduced features like parallel apps, gesture navigation, and a dark mode, all while maintaining its reputation for performance and responsiveness. However, 2021 marked a turning point, with OnePlus merging OxygenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS after Carl Pei left the company.

This controversial decision has sparked concerns about the future of OxygenOS’s unique identity and focus on user experience. While the full impact of the merger remains to be seen, it’s clear that OxygenOS has undergone a significant transformation in its journey from underdog custom ROM to mainstream Android skin.

OxygenOS will remain one of the most beloved pieces of software in OnePlus history.

OnePlus 12R comes with UFS 3.1 storage type – Officially confirmed by OnePlus



OnePlus 12R UFS 3.1 storage type

Recently, Kinder Leu, President and COO of OnePlus, posted a thread in the OnePlus Community where he mentioned that they had made a mistake in their communications for the OnePlus 12R. Previously on the OnePlus official site, it was UFS 4.0 for the 16GB RAM and 256 GB ROM Variant.

It is confirmed that the storage type is UFS 3.1 for both 8GB RAM+128GB ROM and 12GB RAM and 256 GB ROM. This is a sad thing for those users who have purchased 16GB RAM and 256GB ROM variants just because of the UFS 4.0 storage type. You can also clearly show the before and after screenshots that are listed below:

We have also posted a thread on X regarding the same issue along with the videos which you can also check out:

Here is the official statement by OnePlus President and COO:

Hello friends,

I’m excited that so many of you are now starting to receive your OnePlus 12 Series devices and experience for yourself all their amazing new features.

I’m writing today to let you know that we have made a mistake in our communications for OnePlus 12R and to explain what happens next.

During the launch of the OnePlus 12R, we announced Trinity Engine, a new set of software algorithms that help keep your phone’s memory and storage running fast and smooth for years to come. Due to an error, we stated that the storage enhanced by Trinity Engine would be UFS 4.0 in some variants. I can now confirm that the storage in all variants of the OnePlus 12R is still enhanced by Trinity Engine but is actually UFS 3.1.

UFS 3.1 storage is the same fast storage you’ll find in phones like the OnePlus 11 Series, so your phone will still perform really well when reading and writing to memory. The OnePlus 12R also still features all the new Trinity Engine features we announced at launch, like launching apps faster than ever and keeping applications locked open for up to 72 hours, and was fully tested using UFS 3.1 storage. I can also confirm that the OnePlus 12R was fully certified by TUV SUD using UFS 3.1 memory, and, as a result, it is still certified to remain fluent for 48 months. Your OnePlus 12R will stay fast and smooth long into the future.

On behalf of our team, I’d like to apologize to everyone for this error. We remain hugely excited about the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R and hope you’ll love your device as soon as it arrives with you. Of course, I understand that some of you who have purchased or pre-ordered a OnePlus 12R may want to discuss this further with our team, and I’d encourage you to contact our Customer Service team through the usual channels.

We know that UFS 3.1 is not slow. It is the same storage type that we get in the base variant of comes OnePlus 11. For this mistake, OnePlus has to compensate. What do you guys think? Do let us know in the comment box. Also, do tell us whether you like this post or not.
