The time for open beta OS for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3Thas come and with an ugly boot animation, unfortunately.
The official changelog showed that developers worked on adding some ‘soft’ screen calibration, worked on optimizing the clearing of some recent apps, had some minor bug fixes, updated the Community app to the newest version (1.9.5) and last but not least there’s a new boot animation.
To change screen calibration to ‘soft’ you’ll have to look for the setting in the ‘display > screen’ section
The Boot Animation is Mainly Perceived as Ugly, Hideous, Awful
Why ugly? It’s ugly because it could have been better. They just added an animation with a hand continuously writing in different fonts the slogan ‘Never Settle’. There’s nothing very wrong with it but so see this long animation while re-booting is quite annoying.
A lot of users commented on forums that this animation looks bad, it’s an embarrassing booting screen, the animation is awful, hideous, a 1st April joke and so on.
You can see the new animation in open beta builds 15 and 24 for both OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.
Aside from the ugly animation users hope that the new animation is temporary and will not be here to stay with us too much.
Developers have written in their changelog on the official forum that they are happy to receive any bugs that users have encountered. All they have to is go to the feedback section on the OnePlus forums and report the bugs.
Meanwhile, all redditers and users on OnePlus forums hope for a different boot animation that will feature a cleaner and minimal animation.
Criticism is constructive and OnePlus fans hope that the design team will change their minds on this boot animation that won’t do justice to what the OnePlus smartphones have to offer, like a great AMOLED screen.
