Some users report OnePlus 5 crashes when dialing 911

Some users report OnePlus 5 crashes when dialing 911

Other users said they have seen the same thing occur on their phones.

OnePlus says it is looking into the issue, which could have serious consequences for OnePlus owners faced with an emergency. Last month, users complained of a "jelly scrolling" issue plaguing the handset's display.

Some owners of the new OnePlus 5 smartphone are reporting a bug that reboots the handset and this appears to happen when a user of the device dials the emergency services in the U.S. on 911.

Following several other unusual issues, another, potentially much bigger issue has just popped up with OnePlus 5 devices. There's a chance your handset may be lacking a very important feature: the ability to call 911. That's definitely not the way a handset should behave when an emergency number is dialed.

"Confirmed! I had to call 911 after a auto in front of me flipped over". It's unclear what causes the reboot, but it may be related to enhanced 911 services that ping your phone's Global Positioning System. He called emergency services after seeing a building fire not far away, but the phone rebooted each time he tried to make the call.




Several Reddit users have corroborated facing similar issues on their OnePlus 5 units.

It goes without saying that this should be a top priority for OnePlus to fix.

OnePlus acknowledged the issue but did not explain it, Gizmodo reports.

It's unclear what is causing the issue, but Redditors are speculating that it might have something to do with the phone's Global Positioning System feature, which could mean that the bug isn't limited to 999 calls. Let's hope it won't be labeled as "natural". The publication was told OnePlus has contacted Morelli about the issue and are now working to resolve it.
