    I don't know how much money Oneplus spend on marketing their product, many great reviews lead me to switch from iPhone to 7 Pro. but after 30days, the phone automatically power off. I have to search on-line to turn.this back on. now the phone is power on but this Zen mode start to show up. this way too much. OnePlus Dev team, please improve your useful feature and SW, remove these garbage stupid APP from our phone!

    I've got "zen mode" update from App Store, still not possible to remove from phone, but it is not listed as system app anymore, hope we can see option to remove this crap once for good. It still using my data and battery, this drive me crazy, small amounts but still something. Crap...

    Echo all of the above. This Zen malware had infected my OnePlus 5. AND it's consuming battery power.

    I used to sing OnePlus's praises. I'm now VERY angry.

    Please provide a way to disable or, better still, remove this 'feature' from my phone entirely.

    Did you add zen mode to your drop down menu? Pull your notifications down and touch the pencile icon. You'll get apps that you can add, zen mode was on the second page of mine. Touch and drag zen mode up to an empty place with the other icons near the top of your screen and release it. Then tap it to open it. On it's third page /start up screen is when I got the gear cog icon in the top right corner of the screen to open it's settings menu and I was able to turn off the notifications there. I want this ridiculous thing completly removed from my phone as much as you do but for now this is the best we've got.

    HEY! It's in the app store now. Everybody go there and leave your one star rating and tell them what you think about it. Q

    This got forced on my OnePlus 5T too. Didn't ask for it, cannot opt out of it. -- I usually get spammed notifications whilst my phone is on at work playing music with the screen on (cable plugged in) on a stand.

    You can leave your 1 star review here if you don't like this feature:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oneplus.brickmode
    (Or leave a 5 star review if you really like it. Whatever. :))

    I would like to be able to remove this app. I wasn't even using my phone and then I got a notification saying I should take a break (no apps were running). This isn't a feature/app that I need or care for and I'm not impressed that there's no way to remove it for non-rooted phones.

    Hey guys, did you checked permission of the app "ZEN Mode"? For example:
    - add or modify calendar events and send email to guests without owners' knowledge
    - modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
    - read phone status and identity

    Why does this app need it?

    Since this can "brick" phone for some time, this app needs this kind of permissions to be able to take full control over phone.

    Zen Mode is crapware. The default should be OFF, not even running in the background. Adults do not need such a dumbass annoying "reminder". DISABLE.

    0 stars out of 100. Just wanted to hop on the hate train, got a notification with my phone on the charger about turning it off. Didn't know I asked for feedback. Left a 1 star review (1 too many) on Google and sent a brief email explaining my dissatisfaction. I was able to uninstall from the play store, had to disable auto-update or it would have come right back. Can I ban this from my phone somehow?

    This rubbish just started on my phone. The notifications are wrong as I use my phone very sparingly. I do not need to have my phone use rationed by this Crap App. Disable it or allow me to uninstall.

    Guys it's in the second page of quick toggles... bring down the menu, swipe left, there's a toggle for Zen Mode, just turn it off.
