OnePlus 5 & 5T update

OnePlus is now rolling out the OxygenOS 5.1.4 OTA update to their last year flagship smartphones OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T. The update brings July security patch, Improved photo clarity, Group Messaging, and much more.

OnePlus has added sleep standby optimization, which can be enabled by heading to Settings -> Battery -> Battery optimization -> Advanced optimization -> Sleep standby optimization. When this setting is turned on, the system intelligently identifies your sleep pattern based on the phone’s usage. The phone will then turn off the network during specific periods of inactivity, which effectively reduces standby power consumption. The phone will automatically cancel any network restrictions and get the phone out of Sleep Standby just before you wake up so that you won’t miss any notifications such as news updates, emails etc.

Further, in the camera department, OnePlus has improved overall photo clarity. In the messaging app, they have added the Group Messaging section. Finally, there are some Gallery bug fixes and general bug fixes to improve the overall performance of the devices. Here is the official changelog.


  • Updated Android security patch to 2018.7
  • Added sleep standby optimization (Settings -> Battery -> Battery optimization -> Advanced optimization -> Sleep standby optimization)


  • Improved photo clarity


  • Added Group Messaging


  • General bug fixes


This OTA will have a staged rollout, the OTA will be received by a limited number of users at first and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs, so using VPN to download this build might not work as the rollout is not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices.
