OnePlus 5T Can't Stream Netflix in HD, Fix Promised

The OnePlus 5T is unable to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime Video in HD

Lack of support for HD streaming is an odd omission for such an impressive device, so we are hoping that OnePlus will be able to address it with the software update sooner. However, while that makes for the biggest positive for the phone to have, there is one serious drawback though - its inability to run HD quality videos for streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime video.

OnePlus has acknowledged the problem and stated that a future update will enable Widevine Level 1 support.

The OnePlus 5T has Widevine Level 3 certified, which only allows it to play standard definition (SD) streams.

Netflix utilizes Google's Widevine DRM to play the videos. This issue isn't limited to the OnePlus 5T but also includes the OnePlus 5 - and several other phones such as the ZTE Axon 7, for that matter.

It has been recently discovered that the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T are unable to stream HD content from a variety of different services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Google Play Movies.

According to a thread on the OnePlus forums, the issue was highlighted earlier this month. The company also confirmed the fact that both the 2017 OnePlus flagships lack the certification. And second, that the OnePlus 5 has been like this for a year and no one apparently noticed.

Services like Youtube does not need this so you can easily stream content in HD.

There's now no date for the software update with the fix to land, with OnePlus simply saying "we're working on it" when pushed on a release timeframe. Until OnePlus releases a fix, the users of both the phones will have to stick with SD streaming even thought the phone sports a striking 1080p AMOLED panel.

Now-a-days the OnePlus 5T is getting popular among the customers but here is something interesting about this flagship device.
