OnePlus is now sending the first OxygenOS 13 beta update to the Nord CE 5G devices, and users have started giving their feedback and reviews on the new iteration. It’s a good time to know and understand how the latest Android 13 skin will work on your OnePlus Nord CE smartphone in the time ahead.
Recently, a few users dabbed into the community forum and shared their reviews on the OnePlus Nord CE OxygenOS 13 beta update. For your information, the company has pushed the firmware with the EB2101_11_F.01 build version, and a huge changelog of exciting features that weighs 4.50GB.
To begin with, a Nord CE user said that despite being the first beta version, OxygenOS 13 provides a smoother UI experience and animations over the previous upgrade (OOS 12). Besides, the user interface is quite impressive and exhibits the best visual effects on the home screen.
“I have installed OxygenOS 13 beta based on Android 13 on my Nord CE. Honestly, I have never used such a smooth UI experience, animation even after considering it’s the first beta version.”
On the other hand, the battery backup is working fine on the device. Even after using AOD aspects all day long, the device performed well. In a beta version, we often observe extreme battery drainage and other related issues. But that’s not the case here.
In addition to new features, the Nord CE user also pointed out a network bug in the device. Consequently, even when 4G+ services are enabled, the internet doesn’t run efficiently for third-party applications.
“The bug is sometimes even if you have 4G+ you’ll not be able to use the net in some apps like telegram, you can’t even check for updates”
However, you can easily get rid of this defect by turning on the Aeroplane mode and waiting for a few moments. On the other hand, you can try disabling the SIM option for 2-3 seconds.
Notably, this bug is not visible on all devices. Another user said that, after a factory reset, his 5G network started working even better than the OxygenOS 12.
It looks like the first beta is quite beneficial for users. In terms of bugs, we hope that the company will fix the issues with the stable version. Till then, don’t forget to share your OxygenOS 13 beta experience with us through the comment section.
