OnePlus 5 may reboot when you call 911

Other users said they have seen the same thing occur on their phones. It turned out OnePlus recycled the OnePlus 3T's display and reversed it, which is why the issue isn't considered a problem. If the "Jelly Effect" issue was not enough for warning the potential buyers, here is another problem that requires the company's attention more than ever.

Owners of the new phone posted on Reddit that every time they try to call 911, their device will abruptly reboot. This suggests the bug is not with 911 specifically, but perhaps with "emergency calls" in general, which often use special software permissions so that they can be made even on phones that have not been unlocked. A phone's inability to dial emergency number could prove critical for customers in dire need. It abruptly reboots when the user tries to dial the 911 emergency hotline. The phone starts the process of dialing the number, but before the operator can answer, the phone shuts off and reboots.

Several other OnePlus 5 users' comments on the same Reddit thread and others state they are seeing the same issue, and so far it's been confirmed to affect both 911 in the USA and 999 in the UK.

Some users from the United Kingdom are also reporting the same issue. Users are speculating that since some countries emergency services numbers request a Global Positioning System location at the beginning of the call, that the bug may be related to Global Positioning System initialization. Let's hope it won't be labeled as "natural".

In a statement to The Next Web, the company said: "We have contacted the customer and are now looking into the issue".
