    Yeah! Like the Tencent Intelligent File Manager... oh.... hang on, you can't uninstall that. :eek:

    This seems to be the, "thin edge of the wedge", a la Samsung and other manufacturers. First we see a totally separate, ersatz, carrier minority firmware for T-Mobile (USA) and now we are seeing a regional minority firmware for India with added bloatware.

    Maybe a dedicated forum for the Indian market is now in order so the rest of us don't have to wade through the inevitable threads whining and moaning about issues related to the new bloatware. ;)

    Who knows... OnePlus could split it off now that they have an R&D centre in Hyderabad, India and have, say...

    OxyHydrogen maybe? Doesn't exactly roll of the tongue though does it?

    Now that's a little more catchy. Could even call it HydroxyPlus to signify all the extra bloat they'll be adding.:p

    Oh wait that's already taken too. Drat!

    Here's hoping. As long as it doesn't gum up the works and take time away from bug fixes and improvements for existing features. Not exactly as exciting to see in a change log as a "whole new set of features" but definitely just as if not more important.

    It's being taken care of in India, so I don't think so unless it's something major

    Can be uninstalled, at least we still have a choice. People should still be careful what they ask for.
