This is Why Your OnePlus 5 Suffers from the ‘Jelly Scrolling’ Effect

 

OnePlus 5 has been one of the hottest devices right now and is probably the one that’s debated the most. OnePlus released the OnePlus 5 last month and despite being priced higher than its predecessor, it’s still one of the most affordable flagships out there. Last week, however, reports started doing the rounds on the internet that the OnePlus 5 display suffered from an issue which was later termed as the “Jelly Scrolling” effect.

Whenever the user scrolled a page, the screen would produce a bludgeoning effect. Frankly speaking, it is not a deal breaker for many, but those obsessed with the smallest of things can find this affect pretty annoying. OnePlus responded to the same and labeled the jelly effect as a ‘delibrate engineering decision.’

A Redditor named Tassadar seems to have solved the mystery of the Jelly effect that is currently observed only on the OnePlus 5. Furthermore, a teardown by the Redditor reveals that the OnePlus 5 employs a similar layout to an iPhone 7 including the camera module, antennae lines, and the other important bits. Despite using a similar display as the OnePlus 3T, the display didn’t allow for the camera and the antennae layouts to be fitted in the current position, and this lead the engineers at OnePlus to invert the display.

The ‘jelly scrolling’ effect can apparently be replicated in any of the displays by rotating it to 180-degrees. OnePlus claims that very few people have been affected by this and also asked the customers to return their devices for repair. OnePlus, however, quickly added that they cannot guarantee that the issue will be fixed. Also, if this is something that’s getting on your nerves, you can always make use of the OnePlus 15-days return policy.
