    Curious, why was it removed in the first place? Even in the latest phones. If Google required them to be removed completely, shouldn't the support also be entirely stopped by Oneplus for any phones?
    It's the most convenient gesture I've ever experienced. And am so glad the Oneplus 7 still supports it.

    First, nobody got time for that.
    Second, NEVER buy a smartphone just because the manufacturer says "We promise we will add this and that in the nearby future" because a) it will take longer than expected or b) they don't keep their promise.
    Never buy a smartphone expecting the camera software to get better over time. After 2-3 months since the release of a smartphone what you see is what you get, if you don't like the camera after 3 months of updates don't expect it to get any better especially 6-12 months later.
