    Hey everyone,

    We're going to be putting out a hotfix build that fixes the 3rd party camera issues. This will be rolling out later, but the build has already uploaded to downloads.oneplus.net.

    Is the double vibration issue still on this beta ?

    And what's the DRM level of the phone on this update ? Still L3 ?

    EDIT : The double vibration issue is still present. The vibration intensity (being high instead of low) issue is present. The DRM level is still L3, so no Netflix in 1080p for now.
