Further, the forum post said that they have also improved touch latency which was affected for some OnePlus 3/3T users. Pete said “Our engineers tested why scrolling occasionally differed between phones. There wasn’t a lot of precedents for them to work with – no benchmarks, no industry case studies to learn from. So we used a special high-speed camera to track screen movements and measure input speeds. As a result, apps respond quickly to your touch for a seamless user experience. To achieve this, our engineers added a feature to OxygenOS to better manage the way your apps perform.”
Talking about the partnership, Sanjay Mehta, Senior Vice President, Qualcomm and also a OnePlus star, said, “OnePlus creates every smartphone as if it’s creating a piece of art & not just making a mass-produced product.
