Some OnePlus 5 phones reportedly reboot during emergency calls

Calling 911 Can Make This Android Phone Reboot

OnePlus 5 may reboot when you call 911

OnePlus has acknowledged the issue and said it is investigating the problem. A handful of OnePlus 5 owners have complained that the device will reboot itself once 911 is called, preventing them from reaching emergency services.

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. It abruptly reboots when the user tries to dial the 911 emergency hotline.

This, while the most serious issue OnePlus 5 users have encountered, isn't the only problem that users of the smartphone have reported.
