OnePlus 8 screen recorder icon not responding in reported status bar issue
OxygenOS 11 has had too many issues in the few months that it has been available for download and installation on the OnePlus 8 series of devices.
OnePlus 8T, which came with this new custom OnePlus Android skin, wasn’t spared either as it’s riddled with bugs and glitches, many of which have been highlighted here.
Some have drawn parallels to the many bugs and issues plaguing OxygenOS 11 with its drastic departure from its traditional design language, but this has not been confirmed or denied.
Either way, users of OnePlus devices running this version of OxygenOS continue to face a myriad of issues and today we’re highlighting another pair of them.
According to OnePlus 8 users, there is an issue on their devices running Android 11 resulting in an unresponsive screen recorder icon in the status bar.
Affected users note that not pressing the icon will start the device’s screen recorder on the OnePlus 8, and as such, this is clearly a broken feature.
When I pull out the status bar and tap the screen recorder icon, it is unresponsive. I have tried everything and yet I see no results. I recently brought this device and pretty soon bugs and issues start to appear. Please help and resolve this issue as soon as possible.
The issue has since been brought to the attention of OnePlus and in recognition of the issue, a staff member will assure the user that the issue has been referred to the appropriate team.
Thanks for the detailed information. We will certainly get the information to the right team to get this sorted out soon.
Another bug is with the AOD customization options of the OnePlus 8. OxygenOS 11 users note that the lock screen clock on their devices does not change despite selecting a different clock style.
Even after opting for new clock styles, I am unable to change the lock styles on the lock screen of my OnePlus 8.
These users note that their OnePlus 8 gets stuck on the default lock screen clock style, thus defeating the goal of having all custom lock screen clock options in the settings.
The issue has also been passed on to OnePlus and a staff member notes that this has been passed on to affected teams and affected users should stay tuned for feedback.
Thanks for the logs. I have forwarded the information to the relevant team and will get back to you in the event of further updates.
Once again, OnePlus goes above and beyond in the way it engages with its user base, offering them information on the exact state of their issue.
We can only hope that other OEMs follow suit as it all adds up to create a happier and more satisfied user base.
