    After upgrade you have to do the PDC scheme to enable the OEM VOLTE. Why oneplus does not leave as automatic? And where's Wi-Fi 6 on snapdragon 855? OP7P that matters

    I just got a OnePlus 8 and I only have one issue with the camera compared to my previous 6t - why are there no easy ways to change aspect ratio?! I have to go into settings now to change it and it's making me miss shots I could have taken had I not had to fumble around with the menu

    I do agree Oneplus reconsider the OP DEX feature as other manufacturers do support this feature and Oneplus devices have the most outstanding hardware to make an excellent desktop mode!

    awesome!

    Looking for the always on display!
    Is this only for the 8 or older devices?
    Also the limited battery charging set to 80% would be amazing!

    Could not understand why the dex idea is not being adopted. The main thoughts on this where big enough for google to implement the functionality into Android. Samsung adopted it successfully and Huawei considered it worth to be attacked by a own interpretation. Your phones are so powerfull in combination with the great oxygen os. This would make the device more as just a great phone it would make it everything you actually need. A Smartphone a Camera, a Gamingconsole(eg. Stadia), streaming device, or a office desk everything in one great Phone:)

    You should consider the timeline of the desktop experiences.
    Samsung's DeX and Huawei's desktop mode were first. The Google added a desktop-like mode.
    And now OnePlus should develop an own desktop mode, when Google is working on it?
    OnePlus may work on their own desktop launcher to add something they want.

    IDEAS BETA RUN should run in every quarter. It will help bring in new features that are lacking in Oneplus Oxygen OS. Out of 500-1000 ideas submitted Oneplus has implemented only 5 of them which i guess is kind of less with many features already available in other Operating systems.

    Coming to an 8 Pro from an S20 about 3 weeks ago (purely down to dodgy skin tones in the camera), and I'm really missing 3 features. The S20 has so many more features than the OnePlus but most of them I was never bothered about. DEX - nice to have but a bit of a novelty, Single Take camera mode - gimmick, Ultrasonic fingerprint reader, great and secure - only works 80% of the time.

    BUT....

    Always On Display is a MUST! Not knowing if I have a notification or not is quite annoying. So glad it's coming, if it wasn't then if be looking for an alternative already.

    One handed mode, on a phone this big - I didn't use it that much on the S20, but for those few occasions where you do need it, it's useful.

    Dark mode toggle - a bit surprised I have to actually change the theme, rather than just have a toggle. The dark mode is great but the steps to turn it on???

    I see there are signs that all of these are in the Android 11 beta, but would be nice to get some of them before then...
