    Hello and thank you.

    Here's my question for the Software team (you :)):

    Why is the Google Feed instead of the Shelf only available for the T-Mobile variant of the OnePlus 6T?

    Here's my personal question:

    How excited are you about Toy Story 4? :p

    Can we get a dark theme that's really black (AMOLED optimal), not just dark?
    Edit ah gopal already asked

    What feature was the hardest to implement?

    I've noticed that the option of "Cache" has been removed from the Settings. (On OnePlus 6T/Android Pie probably)

    So, do you plan on bringing back that option? (It was really a great way to free up some storage from the device. The last time I cleared it on my OnePlus 5, it was over 6GB which is a lot)

    Question to software team: How does advanced battery optimisation work? How is it different from Adaptive Battery?

    Why is there not a pure black theme in oxygen os?? Since all oneplus devices after op2 have Amoled screens we could leverage the pure black theme, please also theme the notifications pure black too

    It'd be mighty cool if there was Pie release for OnePlus 5/5T before the end of this year. I'm guessing you are planning to roll it out around Christmas eve.

    Hi and thank you.

    Personal question:

    What is your all time favourite OnePlus device colour?

    Software question:

    How about making accent colour scheme system wide not just to the notifications and quick settings but applied to the rest of the user interface like matching wallpapers and app icons.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    1 : May i know the reason for not having option to clear the cache memory after the recent update on OnePlus 6

    2: For the secondary camera you could've gone for the telephoto or the wide angle instead of depth effect (Bokeh effect), because the depth effect can be obtained through software.

    Please release the pie update for oneplus 5T instead of giving some bullshit updates. Now even under 15k phones are getting pie update. I think OnePlus should be more responsive to their old customer.

    Hello @Szymon K. :) Thanks for being here:)
    Here are my questions:

    What OS do you prefer and why? Android, iOS or the outdated Windows Mobile? Why? If Android, which Android (be honest :p It doesn't have to be OOS :p )

    about OxygenOS:
    How close is the cooperation with HydrogenOS currently? Is there a constant exchange with your colleagues? Or how can we imagine the OxygenOS development in this context?

    Thanks :)
