    if you were given a year to design a revolutionary software/operating system or a revolutionary hardware/phone design for a new phone, which one would you choose and why?

    I think that if the new device gets a very good screen and the IP 68 , it's gonna be one of the most popular phones right now and probably the best
    Because OnePlus has almost everything in their phones , but I think that the screen can improve a little bit, specially. with some colours like White or blue, I don't know, that's what I think
    Besides that, just still doing like always, you're the greatest

    As a product designer myself, I'm a huge fan of your work. Do you have any advice for someone looking to find a career in the Industry, and possibly advice on achieving a Design role at OnePlus?

    I have had my first OnePlus for just over a year. Love it and now my wife has bought the Nord. In a hugely competitive market, how do you convince us new purchasers of OnePlus to remain as buyers?

    That's awesome [e]1f60d[/e]
    Hello @Hope L. it was an amazing experience to see your design lab during the HQ tour. said:
    My question for you are
    1. Is there any provision of Dynamic LED or QLED in the next range of smartphones ?
    2. Is it true that T range of smartphones ( 3T, 5T, 6T, 7T) are brought to market after refinement of design of it's predecessors. If No, How do you define your T range of smartphones. ( I personally feel that T smartphones are more refined, gets some extra attention during design)
    Thanks in Advance.

    I've got the OnePlus 6 model and never had any problems. I enjoy using my phone and love the OnePlus range, compared to not very good iPhone.

    Would OnePlus consider moving into the gamer phone market teaming up with a known brand to create the ultimate gaming experience.

    ps would love a pair of buds that match the glacial green one plus 8. Though irridescent would be out of this world please OnePlus make it happen! [e]1f64f[/e]

    Is there any scope for a budget handset, with the modern designs and feel but without the flagship levels of performance?

    Love the look of these products! Earbuds are a hot issue for me- when are the OnePlus Buds available in the UK? @HopeL.

    @Hope L. Hello!

    my question is, What would you say your proudest achievement at OnePlus is?

    And also what's the craziest idea you would love to see on a OnePlus phone if you had complete freedom to do whatever you wanted?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!

    how do you balance your creative choices with a realistic expectation of how the device looks?

    Uurgh. More curved displays and rounded corners?

    It seems cool until the curved display refracts light like crazy and the rounded corners clip icons and text.

    Please make SQUARE 'industrial designs' going forward.

    ive had my OnePlus 6 for a few years now and whilst its still really really fast compared to other phones im finding the camera isnt upto current standards (obviously) so, im going to upgrade, but not sure what to upgrade to. camera is important but also speed and ability to multi task as i run my business from my phone. what do you recommend?

    Hi Hope, my question to you is if creativity is another way of expressing your emotions, what is one word you would use to describe the emotion of the marble blue colour wave?

    As a business, balancing design with economics can be a challenge. When a design brief and criteria are set for a new project, then met, how do you decide whether to continue to design or to accept that the brief has been achieved and design criteria have been met?
