Are you holding on to an OnePlus 5? Be careful, because if an emergency should arise, you might not be able to dial 911 from the handset.
Since its launch the OnePlus 5 has been plagued by a variety of issues including the jelly screen bug. Now another issue has been discovered. The problem appears when owners of the OnePlus 5 attempt to call 911. Due to a bug in the phone’s software, the handset automatically reboots once the emergency number is dialed.
OnePlus 5 users have taken to Reddit to complain about this particular issue. The exact source of the problem has yet to be identified with accuracy. But according to one OnePlus spokesperson who has talked to TheNextWeb, the company is looking into the problem. Hopefully a fix will be issued in a short while.
While we wait on that, OnePlus 5 are advised to save their local police, fire department or hospital numbers in case of any emergency.
The OnePlus 5 arrived last month, as the company’s first dual camera phone. The device includes a 5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution and a Snapdragon 835 processor under the hood. It’s sold in 6GB of RAM/64GB or 8GB of RAM/128GB configuration.
