A recap on our first Global User Talk

    Hey friends,

    Last Tuesday, we've finished our first Global User Talk – an event where the Global and Chinese communities interacted for the very first time, and it was an amazing experience. The event was well-received by both the staff and the live stream audience, I hope our participating users, @keithnyc @YRJ @Lavin A. @wissou @obakesan. @huxley1t, enjoyed it as well.

    This also the first time we live stream a Community event, sharing what was happening in both our Zoom call, where our global and China users met and talked and the brainstorm room, where staff gathered. Technical issues were our biggest concern, but luckily there were no unforeseen issues during the event.

    Thankfully, when it came to the language barrier, @huxley1t was a great help, bridging the gap between the Global and Chinese users with some professional-level translations of some of the questions. The discussions went from OnePlus 9 Series, to ColorOS discussions, to CMF (Color, Material, Finish). Due to the engaging conversation and the time limit, we missed the gear products show-off, where we planned to share some of the cool Chinese exclusive gear.


    You might've noticed the Hasselblad postcard set and pin in the recap video. If you're wondering how you can get your hands on these very exclusive swag articles, don't worry, we're giving a few away in this thread and our upcoming raffles! Leave your comments below, and we'll randomly pick up 3 winners, each winning a Hasselblad postcard set.

    As for the CMF displayed during the event, @Hope L. shared them in the global community weeks ago, but it was the first time to be shown in China, becoming one of the most talked-about topics during the event.

    During the talk, there was a topic that Global users were dying to ask our Chinese users – the move to ColorOS. A China user named Luke who answered the question is actually quite positive about it. He wrote a Chinese recap after this event, feel free to give a peek at the Chinese community, with the help of Google Translate, of course. ;)

    In the end, this was a scary but rewarding experience for the Global and Chinese Community teams. Being live on Bilibili (think Chinese YouTube) gave us no room for error but we couldn't be happier with the result. More importantly, we can't wait for the participants themselves to share their thoughts with you in this thread. As for those that didn't have the chance to participate, we'd love to hear your thoughts on this type of event. Leave your comments below!

    Pretty interesting initiative like I mentioned before, I just wish the recap video was a little bit longer with a richer, well, recap. :oops:

    But I do think this has potential to become a series, not only beneficial for the members, but for the company, that can understand better and in real time how different cultures and needs can come together.

    Congratulations to everyone who participated. ;)

    They do look incredible and quite exclusive. Perfect souvenir for @G_plusone lose in the raffles. :p

    Thanks for the recap video, Crystal.
    Nice of the global members to ask about a topic that many other users would've been interested in, i.e., ColourOS
    Also, me wants that Hasselblad×OnePlus swag:p

    Congratulations to @Crystal Z. and Team for a Wonderful And Successful Event. The Recap Video gives a very brief insight, but definitely looks great✨ And yes, the Hasselblad Postcard and pin set did caught my sight, looks very cool, even from outside💫.
    Those un-released prototypes from @Hope L.'s lab look quite beautiful. I am sure community would love some of them released😉
    Congratulations to our community mates who were able to be part of such an amazing event, and got a chance to interact with our members accross the globe.
    Hoping for many such events in the future too⚡✨💫
