OnePlus 5 Rebooting When Users Try to Call 911

Calling 911 Can Make This Android Phone Reboot

Some OnePlus 5 users are unable to call emergency services on their devices, according to user complaints on Reddit.

OnePlus has already confirmed to The Next Web that it is looking into the issue and asks that anyone else experiencing it to contact support@oneplus.net. But, for some reason, when this happens on the OnePlus 5 something goes awry. He called emergency services after seeing a building fire not far away, but the phone rebooted each time he tried to make the call. First spotted by a Reddit user by the name of Nick, the OnePlus 5 now has a bug that causes the phone to reboot whenever an emergency number is called.

Some users from the United Kingdom are also reporting the same issue.

Nick reported on Reddit yesterday that his phone rebooted while trying to call 911.

While this is certainly a troubling issue, it is not completely unique to the OnePlus 5. Apparently, the phone is blocking any emergency line using the GPS system to provide location data to the operator.

"We have contacted the customer and are now looking into the issue". Should this be the case, the issue may not be limited to 911 calls. However, it is likely a software bug that could be fixed with an update. If the "Jelly Effect" issue was not enough for warning the potential buyers, here is another problem that requires the company's attention more than ever.

The second issue on the OnePlus 5 is that videos recorded in landscape are playing audio in the wrong channel. When playing back recorded videos on the a device with stereo speakers, sounds from the left side of the screen would come out of the right speaker, and vice versa.
