    The overscan mod through ADB is pointless, this needs fixing properly.
    One Plus, you have many users with split decisions about the blank space, some like it, some do not.
    The space ONLY appears when using a gesture navigation bar, if the button navigation bar option is chosen the space is populated with the buttons.

    Those that try the overscan mod through ADB, be aware that it physically adjusts the entire display both in portrait and landscape, if you adjust to -75 or -100 as people are suggesting, you will end up with a 75-100px cut off on the right side of your display in landscape.

    One Plus, please sort this out.

    The worst thing about this gap, the WORST thing is that it closes the keyboard if you accidentally touch it, losing everything you typed. It's more than just an aesthetic problem - it's a huge bug that completely hobbles the user's interface to the phone.

    Yea, this is my only issue with it. I don't mind the empty bar at the bottom. But I accidentally click it 9 times out of 10, which means I need to retype everything once more.
    And sometimes I do it twice while trying to type the same sentence.
    It's beyond me why they haven't fixed such a thing yet.

    Anyway, I've bought the OnePlus 8 Pro now. It will arrive on Monday. If it has the same issue, I'm gonna throw a really big hissy fit.

    It's about time Oneplus starts doing something about it.
    Changed to a new oneplus phone, oneplus 8 pro, thought I'd use the situation to get used to it (despite the ugliness and uselness)
    And then I realised that it's not just ugly and useless, it's dumb:

    - First thing first, you can lose what you were typing, as indicated by everyone already
    - If you click "hide the bar" (gesture menu) the keyboard heights becomes inconsistent.
    Why not keep the bar then? Well guess what, with this stupid screen I realised that it left a mark on this amoled screen for 10 minutes after I chose to hide it.
    So leaving the bar: consistent but marking the screen, yep so great
    hiding the bar: inconsistent with the keyboard

    With my OP7 I used the adb overscan function, but let's be honest we shouldn't have to do this, and this is a shitty option.

    The adb overscan didn't help in landscape mode but breaks it. All other major brands could handle this stage Google decision. OnePlus doesn't want to?

    It would be really great to fix this. On oxygen os the bottom space has 2 buttons : hide keyboard and switch keyboard. I can't seem to disable these buttons and I don't need them. The whole space underneath the keyboard is pointless and wastes space.

    Hi OnePlus team! There are any news about the toggle option for the keyboard gap? Many users would appreciate that fix on the next stable update.

    Thank you in advance!

    Even though aesthetics suck, the major problem is if you accidentally touch the gap, it closes the keyboard and erases everything you just typed. Gap or not, hitting the bottom of the keyboard SHOULD NOT CLOSE IT AND ERASE ALL YOUR CRAP!. Getting a new phone tmr, cant take this horse **** anymore, its ridiculous.

    I'm at the same point as the previous commenter. I'm done with Oneplus. I'm done settling. They've had over a year to address this issue, but here we are.

    I'm having a Xiaomi which does not have this Gap and it's horrible. If you accidentally move your finger while hitting the space bar, it will close the keyboard and if you hit a key while this happens, you open a link on a website and everything is lost. So I would love to have a Gap. It looks crappy, but it's the only way to solve this (as long the gesture isn't disabled while the keyboard is open).

    Super annoying! Why is there no fix for this!?
    This is one reason why I'm dumping OnePlus.
    It's the same on my 6.
