Seems like the Play Music issue may be resolved. Fingers are crossed. At this time the errors in the logcat have gone away (as described in the link in my prior post).
I am not sure how this will impacts battery life. Overall I think the prognosis is good because I realized now that Play Music was running primarily as a foreground app, prior to me turning off ad-blocking, which the app hardly ever is in my scenario.
I used the app for just a bit today and I can see that the background usage has gone up to more realistic level and the foreground usage is down. This in theory will equate to better battery and possibly smoother performance.
Did you receive update couple of days back too?I actually find it embarrassing that my $800, 2015 Sony Android TV has a more current security update than my current generation OnePlus 6T.
I honestly don't mind if a device manufacturer takes a couple of months to get out the latest major software upgrade, but to allow security updates to fall more than 90 days behind is not acceptable, IMHO.
Never before i have seen a community like this and i went through Galaxy S boards and Sony boards which are full of negative people at their peak.
If community is the strongest point in OnePlus, i chose the wrong company.
Anyways, i have recently bought a 6t after years of going with an old S4. I have not encountered any major issue so far but i'd like to know if it's possible to have a torch widget on the homescreen on this OS version. Is it? Because i have not a found way yet to do it without third party apps.
Use mx player. Find proper codec from xda.
Check your pm.
Well, I installed an apk to upgrade this version. With the system updates, it was 2.* verison. That's why I wondered what is the expected latest version with system updates. Thanks
