OnePlus has finally fixed the touchscreen lag issue on the 3 and 3T

OnePlus has finally fixed the touch latency problem on its high-end 3 and 3T handsets, months after promising to do so. In November, OnePlus' co-founder Carl Pei said that the company would deal with the issue, but that it wasn't a high priority, as it needed to focus on delivering its Android 7.0 Nougat update. At the time, he encouraged those complaining about the issue to "keep things in perspective".

Stephen Hall, Managing Editor of 9to5Google, offered a clear demonstration of the touch latency issue in January, showing how the display on a OnePlus device (shown on the left) lags in registering touch inputs, alongside one of Google's flagship Pixel handsets:

Now though, Pei has indicated that the issue has been resolved, although it's not yet clear when that fix will be distributed to owners of the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

While the touch-lag problem has no doubt been an irritation for owners of those devices, it's worth bearing in mind that both handsets are nonetheless very impressive. The OnePlus 3T earned itself an exceptionally high score in our review; indeed, it was one of the very best devices we tested last year.
