OnePlus smartphones are also popular due to their system OxygenOS. This is the Chinese company's own superstructure, which users fell in love with due to its clean appearance, handy features, but especially the absence of unnecessary pre-installed applications.
But that has now changed in their flagship, and more and more people are starting to notice it. OnePlus 8 aj OnePlus 8 Pro that is, they start installing on their own as soon as the system is switched on applications from Facebook. Max Weinbach, a well-known account, recently pointed this out via Twitter.
OxygenOS and bloatware
One of the main factors why OxygenOS is so popular with people is clearly absence of bloatware, thus, an unnecessary number of pre-installed applications that some users may not want. At least for now.
OnePlus smartphones eighth series that is, they will start installing as soon as they are turned on Facebook application as their main, Instagram or Pages Manager. However, this does not mean that they cannot be uninstalled, the bloatware itself is hidden in another place.
He also noticed the problem Max Weinbach, well-known editor of XDA-Developers.com. He commented: "I hate it so much!"

Max Weinbach also points out that if, for example, a new update comes to Instagram, it will not take place classically via the Google Play store, but directly via Facebook services. Their applications thus have their own space in the device.
Services that cannot be removed
As we mentioned, you will be able to uninstall applications such as Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp, but what you don't get rid of from your smartphone are installation services. Specifically, these are Facebook Services, Facebook App Installer and Facebook App Manager.
According to the findings Android Police This is a OnePlus agreement directly with Facebook. This was confirmed by the Chinese giant itself.
However, what may correct this not quite happy decision is the possibility to turn off the installation services, but they will remain in the system anyway, because they cannot be uninstalled.
What do you think of such a step, OnePlus? Unfortunately, even a company whose strategy in the beginning was to go exactly against the style of large corporations and bring flagship killers is gradually changing to the exact opposite. We will only hope that with these Facebook services it has started and will end straight away.
