    Hi everyone,

    We started IDEAS with a simple premise – making it easier for users' ideas to be heard and possibly implemented. With this vision in mind, we embarked on this adventure together.

    During the past 8 weeks, we have received over 5,000 brilliant ideas and 25k likes, with over 2,000 comments exchanged. It has been an epic journey with our enthusiastic community by our side. The beta phase reaches its end today, while a longer trip lies ahead. IDEAS will be under renovation for the next months and we'll see you soon in the Summer!

    The results of the beta phase are listed below and please keep an eye on the community for further updates on adopted ideas.

    1. Always on Display - development to be finished around June, CBT/OBT coming in Aug/Sep [subject to changes, there are various factors working]
    2. Enable fingerprint lock for hidden pictures in gallery - included in the roadmap
    3. Play sound when the battery is fully charged - included in the roadmap
    4. Folders within the app drawer -included in the roadmap
    5. Adding more essential features to Zen Mode - included in the roadmap

      We will invite users who won Adopted Ideas award to join in the co-creation process with our product team from developing on the idea to locking down detailed requirements, from prototype to verification. Please stay tuned.

    Thanks for the update @Trista W. :)

    I am very pleased to hear that we will have improved AOD.
    But i regret that the idea with the 80% battery charging limit was rejected.
    Personally, I rarely charge the phone at night to use Optimized Charging.
    But during the daytime charging, I'd like to block the possibility of charging above the set value.

    Considering the functionality that will be introduced - the sound notification of a battery charge -
    it would be nice if it could be associated with a percentage specified by the user.

    Anyway - it's nice to see that our IDEAS are heard by you a little bit and implemented :D

    NeverSettle :cool:

    What about dual camera (front and back) in Camera app? Horizon light repeat (not just single flash)?

    Please re-introduce the old ONEPLUS GESTURE in Android 10 (swipe up from bottom corner for back) in OnePlus 5T. The new gesture is not really comfortable (atleast for me who was used to the old gesture).

    Atleast retain the option to choose the gesture.
