    Damn, 1.2k likes. OnePlus better implement AOD now or else this whole listening to what community wants is just hoax. Why not just give it as an option and turned off out of the box. Someone who doesn't care about battery life will turn it on. Simple

    Second screen using some low power technology.

    Maybe something which does not light up and only refreshes when needed.

    A notification reminder tone that repeats in loop 1 or 2 min after a missing notification with the screen off. It can be a different tone and no the standard notification one. It can solve the missing notifications in oneplus phones without LED notification light. Maybe is a more power friendly and less problematic solution in comparison to edge lighting? Please take in account that solution to this problem...

    This is at the top of the ideas, if this doesn't get implemented we should strike. why say let your voice be heard if they ignore us

    It will probably be a feature for the 8 series (probably not available on launch). It will eventually reach op 7 series and maybe op 6 series. Don't get your hopes up if you have a op 5 when there's a small chance that not even op6 will get it

    3/27 Update: Hi everyone, an update on this IDEA. Initial power consumption tests have been passed and it is now on our roadmap! We are working on fine-tuning AOD to make sure it is perfectly optimized. Do keep an eye on our Community as we will keep everyone in the loop with further updates, including the release timeline. Thanks!

    Hello and thank you for bringing this request up, @Kar7hik.

    We anticipated this could be an idea mentioned even before we started this platform, so we do appreciate your participation. We are more than happy to share with you, and the community, our thoughts and the developments we’ve made so far.

    Basically, we see this request being about “never letting me miss any important notifications”. Besides the solutions based on sound and vibration, the Always on Display (AOD) should serve as one of the visual solutions (the solutions we have for now are Ambient Display and Horizon Light).

    Internally, we have started the evaluation and implementation of AOD quite some time ago. We prioritize the execution of this feature based on the research made about user habits.

    Taking the OnePlus 7 Pro as an example: according to the analytics of our product usage, on average, our users spend at least five hours on their smartphones per day and check their messages every fifteen minutes. In other words, it's unlikely that our users will miss essential notifications without noticing them almost instantly.

    After that, we ran some tests on the viability of this feature and found out that AOD could roughly consume about 350-500 mAh of the battery, which means you might get one or two hours deducted from your daily usage. Such a battery drainage issue will have a notorious impact on digital natives. This could lead to substandard performances, which makes us more careful about this decision.

    That said, we do understand that our users deserve a voice over the options they have on their own devices. So another round of more thorough evaluation has been conducted.

    It is not as simple as a toggle that can give you that choice, unfortunately, since many complicated factors are involved due to a direct implication with hardware (i.e., display, in-display fingerprint performance). We can only run the test device by device, which translates into a heavy workload.

    To reach a faster conclusion, we’re currently working on a test applied to the power consumption of the AOD in a device with a higher refresh rate display. If the test results meet our quality standards (≤ 150 mAh), we’ll consider placing it under OnePlus Laboratory.

    Please stay tuned as we will share the results of the tests with our Community next week and bring you more updates!
