    First you only offer a new phone in the USA this year with those idiotic curved edge screens, and now you force this crazy warning onto us with no way to disable it! If this is your idea of good customer service and what you call listening to your customers and providing them with what they want... You seriously need a new translator because the one you have is completely broken! This oneplus 6t is me first oneplus device and I bought it because of the large screen size and the smallwater drop notch but if this is how you treat your customers I will never buy another oneplus device nor will I recommend your products to anyone ever! Offer us phones with totally flat screens and do NOT force any notifications on us that we don't have

    Maybe turning off this OPConfiguration will stop only the zen mode notifications, I hope I hope I hope. It's in the memory section of the zen mode settings

    Found something... Might be worth a try.

    - Settings
    - System
    - Developer Options
    - Scroll down to "Background Check"
    - Scroll down to "Zen Mode"
    - Turn off

    1+ to this suggestion.

    I'm sure Zen Mode is useful for lots of people, but I can never settle until it's removable.

    (been here since the first OnePlus handset, have sold by recommendation probably 30 or so of their phones to friends & family - now dealing with complaints)

    Let me remove this garbage. And fire your dev team that thought people need this. This is the biggest "**** you, we know better" I've ever seen.

    Here's something worth trying
    Every time this idiotic zen mode gives us a notification we send oneplus a email complaining about it.
    Since they want to disturb us let's disturb them as well

    The Zen MOde must go away. I havent seen anything so ridiculous on the android platform. It makes no sense to lock out the phone.

    Please let me disable Zen mode using 5 to 7% of my battery everyday and annoying me all day long. Listen to podcast while I work and documentaries when I go to bed.I don't want your text message notification noises waking me up in the middle of the night or the blinking on the screen with the screen notifications I just want Zen mode uninstalled and gone. you guys wanted to be just like Google and Apple and Samsung stop it we don't want this garbage bloatware. If I want to turn my phone off I have a brain enough to do so myself. I control this device not the other way around. But wait you say just silence your phone. Well maybe I need to be contacted or maybe it's an emergency and I need my phone to be able to ring.

    here's how to turn it off. You have to turn it on before you can turn the notifications off. Go to your pull down settings and touch the pencile, add the zen mode icon, then open it. There's a 3 screen menu to go through and activate zen mode. On the third screen, where you can actually turn zen mode on and lock your phone for twenty minutes, it has a gear cog/settings icon in the top right corner of the screen, touch it to open zen settings and there you'll find an active toggle to turn this thing off. And also some other settings for the people that actually want to use it. You can thank Javier P on Android Central for this information.

    There is no cog or options on my version of the app. There is no obvious way to disable it, or to stop it from eating my battery. This is so heiniously poorly implemented, someone on the chain of command has to be an utter imbecile for such a user unfriendly app to be shoved onto my phone, with no way of turning it off. Nevermind users who are now unable to use apps they need continually on, like gps or baby monitors. Extremely, extremely unhappy with this bloatware. If there is not an update to remove this nonsense soon, I will never be picking up another oneplus product again, and, as someone who has convinced several people to buy oneplus phones, I will now definitely be trying to recommend people to use their competitors products instead.

    Disabling notification is only halfway, since it is still using data and battery, so still need option to disable it once for good.

    I think I managed to disable zen mode.
    When you get the notification, click on it, it will open a window, then click on the bottom right corner button, then click the settings icon at the top of the page and disable zen mode. I didn't receive any notification since then, we'll see if it comes back.

    This has to be the tipping point for me, my next device is definitely not gonna be a Oneplus if they're gonna be dumping this crap on us
