Some of the Common issues with OnePlus 8, 8 Pro

With the OnePlus 8 Pro, the business that pioneered the inexpensive flagship segment has moved into the truly high-end tier. When compared to the standard OnePlus 8, it has a bevvy of added features and is a solid advance over its predecessor, but it also comes with a substantially larger price tag. The OnePlus 8 Pro, like practically every other phone introduced these days, isn’t without flaws and faults. We look at some of the issues with the OnePlus 8 Pro, as well as possible remedies and how-to guides that may be available.

Problem #1 — Display issues 

The OnePlus 8 Pro has a stunning 120Hz display, which is one of the nicest we’ve seen. Unfortunately, it has been beset by issues from the start. Fortunately, the most of them appear to be phone software repair issues that can be (or have already been) resolved with software updates. With the OnePlus 8 Pro display set at 120Hz and low brightness, many customers noticed a strong green tint across a dark screen. OnePlus has been releasing software updates to remedy this issue, and it appears to be working for the majority of users. If the problem hasn’t been resolved for you yet, the best solution is to wait for an update. However, keep in mind that the update that corrected the green tint issue for certain users also created a new red tint. So there’s still a long way to go in this situation. Fortunately, the firm is doing an excellent job of correcting the OnePlus 8 Pro’s various display faults and concerns.

Problem #2 — Touchscreen problems

When using the touchscreen, many users have experienced substantial slowness. When the display resolution and refresh rate are set to Quad HD and 120Hz, these difficulties appear to be more common, and they appear to be more severe when using the keyboard with those display settings.

Possible solutions include

Reducing the display resolution and/or refresh rate is the apparent option here. Many people who have experienced this issue have stated that this solves the problem, although it is certainly not the best solution for someone hoping to get the most out of their display.

Full HD at 120Hz is a good compromise to make. Keep in mind that changing the display resolution may require restarting the device. The lag issues should go away after that. Disabling the three-finger screenshot gesture appears to solve the problem for some people. Disable “Three-finger screenshot” under Settings > Buttons & gestures > Quick gestures.

Reduce the animation speed in the Developer Options menu to make things feel more responsive. To become a developer, go to Settings > About phone and repeatedly touch on the build number until you see a pop-up that says “You are now a developer.”Now navigate to System > Developer options in Settings > System. Set all of the animation scale settings to 0.5.x in the “Drawing” section. A factory reset can work as a final option (instructions are included in the tutorial below). However, because this step will destroy everything, be sure you have a backup of any vital files.

Problem #3 — Delayed app notifications

The OnePlus 8 Pro has outstanding battery-saving capabilities as well as aggressive RAM management. While this helps keep things going as smoothly as possible for as long as possible, it can cause issues, especially when it comes to app alerts that are delayed.

Potential solutions include

If you’re seeing delayed alerts, check sure these apps aren’t on the “battery optimization” list, so they can continue to function in the background while you’re using them. The OnePlus 8 Pro may have minor battery life issues, but it may be worth it to ensure that you don’t miss anything vital.

To optimise your battery, go to Settings > Battery > Battery optimization. Locate the apps that are causing the issue. Select “Don’t optimise” from the drop-down menu.

You can “lock” an app if you want to ensure that it continues to run in the background. To begin, open the app. After that, go to the Recent Apps page. Long touch the app window to bring up the pop-up menu, then pick “Lock.” After that, you can remove it by simply repeating the process and tapping “Unlock.”


Explained above are some of the common problems in OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. However, if you are having issues that aren’t exclusive to the OnePlus 8 Pro you should consult an expert. Or you can check out the list of common Android OS problems on Google and how to solve them.
