OnePlus, the startup phone company behind the well-reviewed OnePlus 5, appears to have an issue with another sequence of numbers. Unfortunately, that sequence happens to be 9-1-1.
A video shared to Reddit shows one of the sleek new phones rebooting immediately after being used to dial the three-digit distress code in a test run, making it impossible for its owner to reach a dispatcher in the event of an actual emergency.
OnePlus owner Nick Morelli posted about the flaw on the OnePlus subreddit, noting that he was able to replicate the reboot process over multiple test calls.
