    WHEN WILL YOU MAKE CAMERA QUALITY BETTER? Blurriness and oil painting effect is still top concern with Pie...
    And please fix RAM managment (aggressive background app clearing). System keeps force closing app to make 1.5gb free. That is too much! Maybe 500mb free to quicker opening of new app is more adequate.. But 1.5gb free RAM is too much wasted RAM...

    Will you consider adding row number customization just like you have column number customization?

    I'm asking this because now it's impossile to resize some widgets to make them smaller vertically.

    actually i read it too somewhere but not sure if its swipe to unlock or swipe to answer. Since now apple has touch to answer, i dont think it would matter but then again they are best at suing others.

    I know I'm old-fashioned (or just old...), but I personally still prefer swipe right to answer, swipe left to ignore

    Great opportunity @Ruby G.

    Hi there @Bob C. First things first... Great great job you have been doing with the launcher! The shelf is a boon!!

    1. Can we have more desktop grid options in the launcher???
    2. Option to remove the labels in shelf would be a great addition. Any plans on doing this?
    3. Can we have the frequently used back in the shelf instead of the recent?

    Community app:
    1. Guess many have asked... Any idea of dark mode??
    2. Ability for text formatting.
    3. MOST IMPORTANT: The title suggesting option whole creating a new thread available in browser, can it be implemented in the app??? That would help in reducing the spam in the forum...

    Hoping for some positive comments from this...
    Wish you good luck with your life, both personal and professional!

    @Ruby G.
    I just got one request for you with respect to this thread..
    Can you or any of the mods clean up the thread and remove all the unrelated questions and whiny posts?? Is better to have this thread clean to discuss exactly what it is created for...

    Hi @Bob C. ,
    Enabling Hide Notch on OP6 makes the top edges to feel more square as compared to the bottom edge, making it look asymmetrical.
    Can this be fixed so that the screen looks symmetrical even with the notch hidden ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Bob C. ! Here are my questions:

    • What's the best thing of being an app developer in your opinion?
    • I'm sure it will be asked a lot but, have you considered/plan to add the google feed to the launcher?

    -Can you please combine the app drawer and the recents panel and make them accessible from anywhere, like the pixel devices have? It's much more convenient to swipe up twice to open another app than to go home and then go to app drawer. The process isn't that seamless like on pixel devices. -Also why can't we copy text from one app while in recents panel? A lot of Android Pie features are missing...

    PS: Sorry if my English isn't too notch!

    Hi @Bob C.

    Do you personally use the Community App..?

    Would it be possible to redesign the picture upload picker so it doesn't clone the whole DCIM folder to OnePlus/imageCache...?

    Besides that you guys are doing a great job. My OP3 and the OnePlus Apps run clean and smooth...! 8D

    Thanks in advance...

    @Ruby G.
    Thanks for picking up @cdnfarmer 's Idea...! ;D

    Hi @Bob C.

    This question is regarding to Oneplus launcher on Android Pie.
    Many users like me have encountered this issue.
    If we disable oneplus launcher on android pie then the recents app UI gets reverted to android oreo style. Is there any specific reason behind this? Recents UI is integrated into os but disabling the oneplus launcher on Android Pie, recents UI gets reverted to oreo like.
    Which is kind of strange.

    Thanks in advance, keep up the good work.

    Hi @Bob C., I have got 2 qustions:
    1. When will you finally forbid the cupcakes to create new threads, until they are Gingerbread or sth like that?
    2. When will you implement that into community app? This is just must have feature for that messy forum.
    Pls clarify it for the forum users.

    Please add more accent colours, also please allow the shelf to have a dark mode so the notes that apear in the shelf match the theme of the phone. Thanks, And looking forward the OP6T.
