    When my phone is connected to a WiFi hotspot which has no internet connection (eg for data transfer purpose, car cam is a good example), the phone does not recognize it and still tries to use the WiFi connection for internet access.

    The expected behavior, as seen from Google Pixel 2, would be to
    - show the WiFi icon with an exclamation mark in status bar,
    - to show a notification about no internet access, and
    - to use mobile data network.

    Problem seen in my OnePlus 6 with Oxygen OS v5.1.5. I think this also happens in other v5 build though.
    The issue can be reproduced by connecting to a WiFi hotspot which has no internet connection.

    Anyone encountering the same problem? Thanks.

    Oh I tried to reproduce the issue today, and I found that the problem can be solved by enabling "Smart WiFi Switcher" in WiFi preferences.
