    Hi friends,

    How are you doing? Last month, I invited @Pete as the first guest of the AMA this year. I'm glad that you guys raised some excellent questions and had chance to get the answers directly from him. I said that I would keep inviting mysterious guests to community and I'll be sure to keep my word!

    This time, I'm excited to tell you that community is honored to invite @Carl to be the guest of AMA, to share about his daily life, not just at OnePlus, but and also after work! To make it even more interactive, for the first time, we are going to host this AMA on Instagram live on April 10 Friday night 11pm EST, 8pm PST. I'm sure Carl has a lots to share with you guys, like his workout routine:grin: Let's search and follow @OnePlus on Instagram!

    Starting today, we’ll be collecting questions for the AMA on this thread! Feel free to ask him one question that you're interested in seeing answered. However, no product related questions will be answered here. Carl will be answering 10 of your questions during Instagram live.

    The person who submits his favorite question will win an Explorer Backpack. Questions will be considered on a rolling basis until the end of the AMA event. We suggest getting yours in sooner rather later. Also, Carl will be giving away gifts at the end of the Instagram live, so don't miss it!

    Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

    Good to see @Carl back in action again. ;)
    My question is
    How does OnePlus approach the Question 'What's Next?' for Every New Phone
    I'm very curious now because How did you guys perceive OP8 series after the superb 7 series
    How you guys conceive the Next Device iteration?

    I'd like to ask @Carl:

    In the current situation, we rely more and more on technology to communicate, work, and cope. What else do you think tech can do/innovate to make sure such crises don't happen in the future, or at least are handled a lot better, so society and the economy are not crippled? You know back in the day things like going into space or communicating via portable video devices were just dreams, but people went ahead and made them happen, so I would just love to hear your wildest ideas.

    Hey Carl, glad that everything is still running at HQ. My question is, during the lockdown what was your favourite thing to eat? Did you order lots of take out or maybe you ate a lot of dessert? :D

    Hey @Carl , Long time !

    Here is my question tingling my brains for a very long time. Might be a little different one tho.

    Question : With the advent of latest technology, I kinda feel the hand held smartphones has all the latest technology it could fit in right now. Literally meaning all the latest innovations and latest tech. With producing new products how difficult is to think that there isn't something in this device which we should innovative. How difficult is it for the R&D team to find something there isn't in the smartphone and further proceeds to innovating it. (Almost everything is in the smartphone, and finding something that isn't there in a smartphone , just to bring to the next device in order to innovate and differentiate to the previous gen.)

    Hey Zach, cool initiative! I'm wondering if there's a way to watch the AMA for people that don't have Instagram?

    Looks like an Amazing opportunity.

    My Question would be What makes you push forward for the new technologies which each upcoming generations and do you have to make some sacrifices to the current generations to balance the future products?

    There has been some crtisicm in India about OnePlus increasing the price of their devices year after year.

    My question how OnePlus is trying to answer this question?

    I hope you pick my question as me being a OnePlus user is searching for answer of the same.

    Hi @Carl, will you be considering to open physical presentation stores in East Europe as Xiaomi is doing since a while? I'm a Romanian, I guess Romania 🇷🇴 would be much interested in it.

    My question for @Carl would be -

    How does your design philosophy evolve with every new phone ? Is the inspiration taken from what's existing in the market or based on existing user feedback alone ?
