[Updated: Apr 05] OnePlus Nord users facing slow charging issue after OxygenOS 11.1.1.1 (Android 11) update

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on March 23, 2021) follows:

OnePlus really did drop the ball with the rollout of its Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 to eligible devices. The updates that were expected to come soon after Android 11’s September 2020 release are just now rolling out.

Recently, we’ve seen the rollout of the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro’s Android 11-based OxygenOS 11, months after it was initially expected. Nord users were also treated to a stable release at the beginning of this month.

However, that update was quickly pulled due to bugs and issues, only to be re-released as OxygenOS 11.1.1.1. With this re-release, users hoped that OnePlus had finally taken care of all the issues.

Well, that doesn’t seem to be the case as OnePlus Nord users are still facing pretty serious issues with their devices, even after this OxygenOS 11.1.1.1 update.

It is now coming to light that the OnePlus Nord running Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 is a little slower at taking up charge than it was on OxygenOS 10 (1,2,3,4).

More reports (1,2,3,4,5,6) of slow charging OnePlus Nord devices after the update to Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 keep coming in and for now, the only solution seems to be turning off the device.

I am also facing slowness in charging. If I turn off the phone and charge it will charge quickly.

As it turns out, these affected devices are still able to warp charge when they’re turned off and this squarely puts the fault on the OxygenOS 11 update.
