    Yes. You cannot uninstall Zen mode. OnePlus community and other good pre-installed applications can be uninstalled or deactivated.

    Wow. I was trying to find Zen Mode in App Settings and The usage information says Zen Mode alone used 6% of my battery from full charge but also states that Zen Mode was neither active nor working in the background since last full charge. I think you're referring to the same too. Even I got spooked when I first saw it. But then I checked other system apps, and they all show the same. I think it just means that System Apps together used 6% of my battery. Doubt if it's actually Zen Mode that's responsible.

    Zen Mode is awsome... I have only one request... Please add an option to make call while in Zen Mode. You can make it an optional feature.. In my line of work, I have to have access to 24x7 phone call availability..I don't need the other things, message, social media, whats app except making call... only for this reason I am not being able to use the Zen Mode frequently.. Make this feature.... and I am in Zen mode most of the day

    Why dont you just, I know this is gonna be hard to imagine, not use your phone in the times you would use zen mode and then you would be able to make your calls when you need to.

    That is indeed the best way.. but the whole premise of Zen mode is the not using the phone is very hard..and the incessant barrage of notifications makes it harder... most of my screen time is spent on Facebook, and YouTube.... believe me I tried very hard ... uninstalled Facebook, muted all notifications of the apps... but like a drug it all relapses.... Zen mode was a blessing ..... Entering zen mode may be an impulsive split second descision...but is is effective

    Using your phone isnt hard, just delete your facebook and the account, if you dont want to do that, just disable notifications. Theres a million ways to deal with this without limiting your functunallity to do your job. If you cant stay away from facebook and youtube when you claim you wamt to, you either are lying to yourself thinking its a problem or you arent responsible enough to not do something that you want to stay away from. Sorry if I sound like a dick but I honestly do not understand an addiction to social media, if its bothering you, turn it off. If you truely want to stop but still make calls, throw away the phone and get a flip phone. It seems like for you using zen mode and getting your zen numbers up is just repurposing your addiction. I dont think its helping you, just convincing yourself that it is. You are simply trading one addiction for another and keeping the addiction present, one of which you stated prevents you from doing your job.

    I think, I am not making myself understandable... I have no problem with my job... I don't even get to use the phone during my work due to busy schedule. It is the free time I am concerned with... but even in free time I need to make a few calls time to time... .. And free lone time is boring.... boredom eventually draws you to the phone.... I just want to spend those time with some equally boring but productive work... anyway... everyone has their own problems and own means to tackle them..

    Please add some security to this feature. Or else random people will start ZEN MODE at any random time as a joke. But this is sometimes very problematic. So please resolve this issue

    really thanks for this feature and new update which let me use for longer than 20 minutes, please let us use it automatically if some conditions meet, for example when I'm at home (wifi or location) on a certain time of day

    btw: I just buy this device 1 month ago and really love this feature

    Please give me an option to disable or remove Zen mode completely. It may be useful for some, but I have no need for it. It keeps using my data and draining my battery. If an option to remove is not given to me this will be my last OnePlus phone.

    It can't be disabled or uninstalled, that is the problem. I should have that without having to root the phone to do it!
