Delete Faulty Apps
Most of the times, rogue and defective third party apps play a major role in making your OnePlus 5 to freeze and eventually crash. As soon as you spot a defective app on your device, read the reviews to see if you are not the only one experiencing the issue, if you realize that the issue is common and the developer is not making any effort to work on the app and fix the issue. I will advise that you delete the app from your OnePlus 5 to avoid further damage to your device.
It’s also possible that you are experiencing this issue because you have not restarted your OnePlus 5 in days. Using the OnePlus 5 for days with restarting can make apps to start behaving irrationally due to memory glitch.
