The OnePlus 5 has a bug that could actually kill people

Calling 911 Can Make This Android Phone Reboot

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 U.S. and 999 in the UK. Users in the United Kingdom are also reporting that trying to dial emergency services in that country (999) also results in a reboot. Apparently the OnePlus 5 might reboot if you dial emergency services, which is a pretty serious problem.

The issue was first discovered by analyst Nick Morrelli, who chanced upon it when attempting to connect to the police by dialling 911 using his OnePlus 5, he said. Should this be the case, the issue may not be limited to 911 calls.

We would recommend that you do not try this out, as you could end up getting through to 911 when people with real emergency calls are trying to get through.

At least one other OnePlus owner commented on the original post, reporting the same problem.

Investigators found human remains, including a body identified as one of the victims, on DiNardo's parents' property. Investigators also searched a property in Bensalem that the DiNardo family owns, CBS Philly reports.

The OnePlus 5 offers a lot of features you don't usually see in a phone that costs under $500 like a dual camera, lightning fast fingerprint sensor, and a Snapdragon 835 SoC.

Some OnePlus 5 users are unable to call emergency services on their devices, according to user complaints on Reddit.

"Confirmed! I had to call 911 after a vehicle in front of me flipped over". It also means that the bug that's barring 911 calls, could also leverage to any emergency line that requires the phone's GPS system to offer location. The publication was told OnePlus has contacted Morelli about the issue and are now working to resolve it. OnePlus responded to the issue by sating that the jelly-like effect is "natural" and that "there's no variance in screens between devices".
