OnePlus has added a useful gaming mode which gamers would love. It includes features like automatically switching off the adaptive brightness and the power saving mode so that it doesn’t affect your gaming performance. When brightness randomly varies, it’s very frustrating during a gaming session which is why it will be turned off in gaming mode.

OnePlus Switch is yet another new feature which allows you to seamlessly switch between multiple devices by transferring stored data. When you switch SIM cards or own two different phones, Switch comes as a convenient feature to migrate application data. The developers have also fixed most known bugs and with the open beta sessions going successfully, it may not be long for the official Android 8.1 update to be rolled out to all OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 users.
