    Please release the blobs oneplus! We dont care if it is slower the fact that they are out is what all the community wants. OOS will always be a bit speedier but thats fair considering what's in stake (Good Rooms)that can please the developers community and the hardware manufactor. There are no downsides in fact, user experienced will be better than what is now só whats the catch?

    I feel as though OnePlus has treated customers with disdain. We were asked for feedback, we provide it, we were advised that the blobs would be released and then they're not. There's been no communication or timeline since. You'll sell more OP4s if you respect your current customers.

    OnePlus knows that a big selling point of its phones is that they're dev-friendly. However, it released the phone knowing that the camera performance is poor without its algorithms. This ultimately means that we're stuck with OOS. OOS is very good, but the OP3 isn't a dev friendly phone if we must avoid custom ROMs due to poor camera performance. Did anyone see this written in the brochure?

    Next time, if you're not going to release the blobs, include a better sensor that isn't dependent on algorithms to make it perform decently!

    Did anyone seriously think that OnePlus will join the discussion?
    Don't you think they didn't know that basically everybody here would be in favor of releasing the blobs.
    Just another measure to play out time...

    This is not the first and will certainly will not be the last thread they create to make users think they communicate with them.

    Small hint: they don't! They never did. They write forum posts to write about these forum posts in their weekly forum post. They feel good this way.

    If you really want them to respond eventually, twitter them, link them on reddit on these discussions...

    To be honest, I am happy with what they accomplished with Nougat so far and I can certainly wait for them to release the blobs. But as I am planning to keep my OP3 for around two years (just like my old OPO), this will:
    a) have a direct impact on my decision to buy future OnePlus devices.
    b) probably determine how long I can actually keep this device because we all have seen them abandon older devices in the past, so custom roms will give us fresh Android Updates and security patches. But custom roms + crappy camera = instant sell and forget

    The sooner, the better, actually, to that camera game, this would really give a fully operational camera (with original features) to a device running AOSP, really eager to see this happen :)
