OnePlus pushing OnePlus 5 survey to OnePlus 5 owners

OnePlus is once again gaining some bad press in regards to its latest handset, the OnePlus 5. According to numerous sources on Reddit and Twitter, it looks like the firm is pushing notifications to the device, urging users to take a survey, in order to win a OnePlus 5.

This behavior does seem a bit peculiar and intrusive, considering that most just purchased the handset and probably don't want to be pestered with surveys. Luckily, if you are a OnePlus 5 user there appears to be a way to stop these notifications.

Whenever you are lucky enough to receive one of these surveys, you'll want to long press on the notification, which will send you to a menu system that will allow you to block all notifications from the OnePlus 'Push' app. Once this is done, the notifications from this app will be disabled. Unfortunately, those using a OnePlus 3 or 3T will not have the ability to disable the incoming notifications in the same way.

This is only the latest in a string of issues that have plagued OnePlus 5 that includes a reboot issue when dialing 911, displays stuttering, an inverted audio problem, and more. If still interested, you can always purchase the handset from OnePlus, with prices starting at $479.
