    Hey y'all. Brand new here.

    My questions are this:

    would you consider implementing a feature for taking videos using both front and rear cameras at the same time? I can provide a sample. My last phone did this and I really miss that feature. (of course my last phone is nothing compared to my new OnePlus 6)

    and, Since I am new, I don't know y'all well enough to ask you a personal question so I'll resort to Arnoldism... who is your daddy and what does he do?

    Thank you and I couldn't be happier with this phone and company. Y'all Rock!

    i just want you guys to add a feature which enables us to make folders in the app drawer, it would make my life a whole lot easier
    Rest everything feels complete atleast to me.
    oh yeah i Totally forgot about it ADD ALWAYS ON DISPLAY! right away with customization option like to add image or text on the display just like Samsung but in a battery conservative way.

    • How did you decide to remove a navigation option like the hide button.
    • Is it possible for you to add customization color for the LED notification indicator (since it's RGB as well).

    Hi Team,

    I could understand why the TV mirroring is black out for Hotstar & Other such App on One plus 6 but YouTube works fine?

    What is love?
    (there is only one correct response)

    In all seriousness though what's with the White Home/status bars when in full screen YouTube on Pie? Only happens sometimes, and then you have to force close/restart the app to get rid of the searing white.

    1) Are u planning on making a couple of live wallpapers to enhance the experience ? such as those in the pixel, simple but beautiful.

    2) Don't you think about adding a horizontal app drawer option ? as myself and many others prefer it over vertical.

    Thanks for the awesome work guys :)

    Thanks @Cheetosdust .

    @Ruby G. And everyone involved. I appreciate you making something from the idea/suggestion. And letting the butterfly, fly. ;)

    Questions for @Bob C.
    What is your biggest challenge that you had to overcome while designing the launcher or the community app? And what lessons do you carry forward from it?

    Borrowed from the staff Bingo questions:
    If you could have a conversation with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

    Hi, @Bob C.
    When does the launcher full support adaptive icons and adaptive icons customization?

    I think it's crazy (^^)

    having the ability to place the search bar at the bottom like it is on pixel phones would be more handy and easier to reach and use on the fly

    Actually I have no questions, I just have request regarding to launcher, please OP make launcher more customizable like Nova or Action Launcher, and make it looks like Pie stock launcher, now it looks still like Nougat launcher. Ofcourse I can install Nova or Action but there is missing double tap to sleep with immediately phone lock, it's possible to do but I won't root my device.

    Please introduce a super power saving mode on OP devices, something like samsung. Which turn off all the features but calling and messaging. May be there can be an option to off/on the mobile data for messaging app like whatsapp. Something like in this image. I am sure user community would be in for this.

    Regarding OnePlus Launcher: it is nice and useful.

    2 points from my side :
    - to have more icons (up to 7-8) in the dock
    - to have more flexible Desktop grid with up to 7 in vertical... and 7 in horizontal.

    mainly due to this I'm using Nova instead of OnePlus launcher, even if Shelf is very nice feature which I would like to use.
