    Jimmy Z., Feb 7, 2018 :

    Dear Friends,

    There's a reason why we print on every box “Created together with our fans." We see you as an integral part of the OnePlus Journey. We know growing is not without issues - when you are out there, sometimes you don't bring it home. The upside of this is our vocal community, who steers us back to the right path.

    Last year, you made it loud and clear that our camera wasn't delivering all it could. Pictures for many of you are one of the main reasons to upgrade from an older device. Photos are how we reconnect with old memories or show the world how we see it.

    Our team will continue to improve our software, but that alone will not solve everything. That's why we want to hear from you about what's important and where we need to improve first.

    [ How to join us? ]

    On March 3, we will hold the Open Ears Forum: Camera in Hamburg, Germany. Applications are open to all European residents. The selected applicants will have their travel and accommodation costs sponsored by OnePlus. Fill the form here to join: https://goo.gl/forms/bQut4U8AwXZNQ8ZQ2

    We will invite 20 users to join us. Entries are open until February 19 at 10 PM (GMT). We'll announce the participants on February 21 at 10 AM (GMT). For our fans across the globe, don’t worry, once we wrap-up this event, we will release a survey to listen to your ideas as well. We look forward to seeing you there!

    Notice: This will be an English speaking forum, so we ask that you only apply if you speak fluent English, as we want you to be able to fully participate in the event.

    Never Settle


    A huge THANK YOU to everyone who applied this application! The form has been closed, We'll contact the winners via email very soon.

    Want to add some bullet points since @Jimmy Z. is offline right now.
    • What's so called Open Ears Forum?
    • Why we plan to make a Camera-focused event?
      • To systematically improve our Camera performance in a long term by partnering with our users (online + offline).
    • Are we going to have more Open Ears Forums?
      • Yes, we'll have more events based on different topics this year. Stay tuned. ;)

    Doing it just before launching OP6 huh. you can't fool us again OnePlus. Just improve Op5/5T camera performance. Hosting these useless Events won't solve the problems. You can't gain our trust by doing these events.[e]1f620[/e]

    But if everyone made it loud and clear a year ago the camera was below par, why is it only now after the 5T you make comment of it? Is this another excuse for a massive price hike only to reveal another below par camera?

    Jimmy this once again seems to be a great effort from the OP team side to take up our voice to improve the overall quality of the devices from the camera point of view and all the users not only of just new flagships are looking forward to it. Good luck. [e]1f44d[/e][e]1f44d[/e]

    thank you so much for hearing our complaints related to camera and organising an event just to hear our Feedback .. Yes oneplus needs to improve its camera software coz oneplus 5 has all the latest hardware for portrait as well as for normal pics to be clicked .. I'm really happy to see oneplus had really took this camera issue seriously and will work to make it perform much better

    I would be participating in the Survey as I am not European Resident.

    It's great to see your team taking this into consideration.

    gamerxsoft, Feb 7, 2018 :
    To all European elite members, please raise the following concerns:
    1. Despite having such great hardware, why 5T is inferior in maintaining picture sharpness.
    2. Why precision is absent i.e why it produces different quality with every click.
    3. How google cam mod and others can give camera mod that clicks better pic than their own software.
    4. Last one : Are they doing this for OP6 or they have some plans to use this feedback for 5 or 5T.
