OnePlus 5 ‘Jelly-Scrolling’ Issue Subject To Scrutiny By Developers
Chinese tech-giant OnePlus recently took the wraps off its flagship smartphone, OnePlus 5. Soon after the launch, the device was reported to be experiencing some sort of a 'jelly-scrolling' issue. Several users after spotting this problem in their recently-purchased OnePlus 5 smartphone started taking to online platforms to register their complaints. 'Jelly-scrolling' has been described as a situation when the webpages or apps like Twitter undergo a warping effect without having commanded to do so. Technology editors started giving their expert opinions as to why the OnePlus 5 was going through the 'jelly-scrolling' issue. Some suggested that the 'jelly-scrolling' issue had something to do with the VSync problem existing in the device, while others claimed that it is probably because OnePlus installed the display upside down in the smartphones.
As reported by Gadgets 360, OnePlus took into account the troubles experienced by their OnePlus 5 users and issue a statement almost immediately. According to the company, the 'jelly-scrolling' effect is natural. They forfeited all the rumors suggesting that the display was installed upside down too. They finally stated that there is no variance in the screens between all the smartphones dispatched till date. Therefore, it is safe to assume that OnePlus will be releasing a software update to fix this problem soon. As mentioned before: XDA, a popular tech community website investigated the 'jelly-scrolling' issue in the OnePlus 5 smartphone and immediately announced their ruling. According to them, the problem can be accredited to XSync. They further stated that their experts had scanned through the smartphone's kernel source code and then found that the 'jelly-scrolling' issue was directly related to the software.
It appears like XDA experts discovered a display controller code while investing the device's kernel code. The former kept rotating the output by 180-degrees automatically. Then the developer went on to state that the previous models of OnePlus such as OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T and even Google Nexus 5X, and Google Nexus 6P, did not come along with such problems. In fact, this line-up of kernel codes was missing entirely. They then went on to apply the OnePlus 5 mechanism to the OnePlus 3T smartphone and found that even the latter's display was being inverted. It comes across as a situation wherein the display is placed upside down but in reality, the problem lies in the software aspect of the OnePlus 5 smartphone. Is this going to end up costing OnePlus its reputation? Only time will tell.
