OnePlus 6/6T frame drop issue after Android 10 update still going strong
We all rejoice on getting a major OS overhaul. Owing to the numerous features and change in appearances it brings to the table, using the phone for the first few weeks after installation is always a pleasant experience.
What if the OTA brings some chaos? For example, you might have already heard of Google Pixel’s call end bug, media volume issues, and app shortcuts bug after installing Android 10. OnePlus users also suffered from screen calibration glitches and more.
While it’s true that the Chinese OEM released incremental updates after the main OTA, users are not happy with them even now. Going by multiple posts (1, 2) on different platforms, a problem that started bugging OnePlus 6/6T from the time the company first released Android 10 is still prevalent.
OnePlus 6T extreme choppiness
I’ve been having this problem with my phone that makes everything extremely laggy (looks like 10 fps) and I’ve tried factory resetting multiple times and the problem still persists. Could it be a hardware issue or is the software to blame?
You can trace the origin of some of these posts back to 20 days before. And yeah, it still persists. Apparently, the frame drops have affected screen recording too. We could spot about half a dozen complaints on Reddit as well as the official support forum (1, 2, 3).
Screen Recorder not recording at 60FPS, OP6 on OS 10.3.0
Updated to Android 10, OS 10.3.0 few days ago, and tested my screen recorder today. Video turned out to be 24/30ish FPS not 60. Android 9 was putting my videos out to be 60fps.
And yes, my settings in app were set to 60FPS. Is there a fix for this or do I have to roll back?
