OnePlus 3′s OxygenOS 3.2.0 update brings improved RAM management, sRGB display mode

Posted: 04 Jul 2016 10:49 AM PDT

If the OnePlus 3's metal body, 6GB of RAM, or price tag convinced you to pull the trigger on OnePlus's latest flagship, you've now got a software update coming your way.

The OnePlus 3 is now being updated to OxygenOS 3.2.0. The update brings improved RAM management, a response to early user complaints about how the OnePlus 3 used its 6GB of RAM to keep apps running in memory. While OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei previously said that the way the OnePlus 3 managed RAM benefited battery life and user experience, but now it looks like OnePlus has now decided to tweak the OP3's RAM management in response to those users.

Also included in this update is an option to enable sRGB mode on the OnePlus 3's display, which you'll find in the developer settings. Other notable features of OxygenOS 3.2.0 include enhanced audio playback quality, updated custom icon packs, notification bug fixes, and the latest Google security patches.

Here's the full OxygenOS 3.2.0 changelog from OnePlus:

  • Enabled sRGB mode in developer options.
  • Improved RAM management.
  • Improved GPS performance.
  • Enhanced audio playback quality.
  • Updated custom icon packs.
  • Fixed some issues with notifications.
  • Improved camera quality/functionality.
  • Fixed some issues in Gallery.
  • Implemented latest Google security patches.
  • Fixed bugs in Clock/Music apps.

This update is rolling out incrementally, which means that it may not show up on your OnePlus 3 right away. OnePlus expects the update to hit all OP3 units within 48 hours or so, though, so you shouldn't have to wait too long to see exactly how the OnePlus 3 performs with its new RAM management tweaks and sRGB display mode.

Specs For The Larger Upcoming “Nexus Marlin” Leaked

Posted: 04 Jul 2016 09:25 AM PDT

Nexus 6P

If you don't already know, countless reports and rumours have suggested HTC will manufacture Google's upcoming two Nexus smartphones with codenames Sailfish and Marlin. While specs for the smaller Sailfish phone were leaked a couple of weeks ago, we finally get to see the specs for Marlin, which is going to be the larger of the two.

According to Android Police, they have received substantial evidence for Marlin and have published an article with the following specs:

  • Manufactured by HTC
  • Quad-core Qualcomm processor
  • 5.5″ QHD (2560×1440) AMOLED display
  • USB-C port
  • 12MP rear camera, 8MP front
  • Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner
  • 4GB RAM
  • 3450mAh battery
  • Bottom-firing speakers
  • 32/128GB of storage
  • Bluetooth 4.2

All in all, Marlin is looking pretty good so far. It's too bad the company that made front firing stereo speakers mainstream wasn't able to bring it back for the Nexus as both phones are expected to feature bottom firing speakers. It is also not clear as to what SoC HTC/Google will go with since the Snapdragon 821 and 823 are rumoured to launch with phones sometime later this year.

PSA: Samsung S Health added integration with Runkeeper, Strava, Fitbit, Jawbone, Misfit, and Microsoft Health

Samsung's S Health app can connect to multiple apps and services to pull and push data through them. Notable examples are Nike's running app, Qardio for blood pressure monitoring, and more. But S Health has always lacked support and integration with plenty of known activity tracking services like Runkeeper, Strava, and Fitbit. This made the app a lot less useful as a central dashboard of your exercise, sleep, and various health metrics, and even diminished the appeal of Samsung's Gear watches since they couldn't share data to popular activity services.

Koush publishes Vysor to the Play Store, still available through Chrome app

Posted: 04 Jul 2016 04:18 AM PDT

VysorHero

Vysor is a useful app for developers, designers, or just people who are curious about Android and want to see cool stuff on their computer. The app mirrors an Android device's screen on a computer, which uses a Chrome app with ADB to provide the interface between the phone or tablet and the computer. It should see many more downloads now, with Koush having uploaded his app to the Play Store.

Vysor can also be installed via ADB, using the aforementioned Chrome app. The Android app on its own does nothing; it will simply prompt you to get the app from the Chrome Web Store. However, once this is done, using Vysor is a piece of cake: connect the phone/tablet to the computer, enable USB debugging in Developer Options, then select 'Find Devices' on the Vysor Chrome app.
