Quicker boot time

A good number of changes accompanying the Android Oreo updates are majorly behind the scenes. These changes were made to create an enabling environment for faster overall user experience – boot time for example.

OnePlus states that any OnePlus 5T smartphone running the Oreo OS will power up 2 times faster than the Nougat versions.

Stricter Background Limitation
