    It would be really useful & give some pretty looks to allready ruined gallery ui if u remove useless swipe down to turn on cloud sync pop up. Hope chinese copy cat innovators will understand this common frustration of 90% of realworld users.

    I can see that lots of bugs have been squashed since DP3 and I'm happily using it as my daily driver with dual sim & 5G here in the UK.

    Battery usage seems higher but that could just be me because I love using this
    phone

    The AOD is very bright at night in a dark bedroom.

    I can't wait for GPay to work.

    The only other comment and is that this release just seems to glow quality. I know it's subjective but I personally like the UI changes and using this phone / release is a real joy.

    Can any among the paid & unpaid fanboys of OOS 11 explain me functional usefulness of this 1 meter font size title of photos & collections. Copycat developers can also explain but please don't tell me that is for ease of use on large screen. To overcome drawbacks of larg screen oneplus should start developing small screen phones right from oneplus 8T series now.

    Like the poster above, I am having serious battery drain issues that were not present in DP3 (for me, at least). Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I think there's definitely something going on though looking at the battery usage info doesn't really show any clues.
