    Q: While using the OnePlus 8T's primary camera, focusing with close range is difficult.
    A: When shooting at close range, the light or the texture of the object might affect the autofocus algorithm, making it impossible to find the focus point stably. If you need to focus at close range, you can use manual focus in professional mode or turn on Super macro to shoot. If you still face problems focusing at close range, please go to the community feedback area to submit feedback and provide the original film for reference.

    Q: I can't find the weather app in the Launcher's widgets after updating my OnePlus 8 series to OS 11.

    Thank you for update, even though I expected some hints (if a complete answer is not possible) about the bug introduced with Oxygen 11 about the screen resolution. Everything is too big and need to be scaled down to "small" or buy the development options by changing the dpi.
    Any news regarding this?

    Is there a way to change the background of the widget screen? I think it looks terrible, and I want to choose the apps I use by myself. In this case, the weather app.
    If I my suggest something, you could develop a music player app, which is preinstalled like on Samsung and other phones. Those from the App store are no good, and always annoying with the advertising and the rights they want.
