    You can stop using your smartphone for 20 minutes even without zen mode. It's just useless.
    Stop being some kind of blinded fanboy.

    its not about blinded fanboy. every single person who dont loved this mode think of them as some type of superhero who is not a fan and can do anything.
    its not like that
    obviously i can put down my phone if i want. but every now and then a notification pops up, it will disturb you. or you will be thinking whats going on there.
    where zen mode comes to rescue. it really says no means no.
    just try 20minutes without touching your phone while doing something. lets see how it goes. i for one find it very useful.
    just because i found something useful doesnt mean i am blinded fanboy.
    stop being such a butthurt. and start looking at the things in a positive manner.
    peace ☮️

    Have you ever heard of DND mode?

    nope only you have heard it i think.
    listen even in dnd mode, you can just use your phone if you want to. which happens very often.
    tons of notification popping up every now and then.
    me at first also thought this of an gimmick
    but more i used it, more i come to understand it what its mean.

    To me, it has become one of my most important app. Thanks to the Oneplus team.

    If a function that restricts you from using your smartphone is one of your favorite features then you really have to hate your smartphone, huh?

    I don't get how zen mode can be useful.
    If I want to concentrate on something I just put down my phone.
    And if some notifications bother me I can turn on DND.

    Yes, that may be true,. But the urge to reach out to your phone some time gets too much that an assistant app will highly be welcomed. This is where the Zen mode comes into play.

    I'm mentally strong enough to keep my hands off my phone. No thanks Zen mode.

    What I needed is persistent notification indicator or ambient display to glance at the screen and get the basic info without picking up my phone every time. Please note!!! [e]1f612[/e]

    Well, it's a harmless app sitting there for those that needed it. Just like the Screen Recorder that I seldom and doubt I will ever also use.

    A feature which I think should be helpful in Zen mode could be adding some meditative audio or mindfulness practice.

    I think adding anything audio or otherwise will defeat the initial aim of the whole project, which is to divert attention from using the phone and engage in conversation, for example.

    You may as well be a fart in the wilderness, there are maybe 5 people here who would recognise or care about that.

    For an app that demands no obligation to be used, just like so many other apps,? Then you really shouldn't be here. There's no point.

    Samsung has a lot of bad ideas, many bloatware applications. Oneplus doesn't need nonsense, Oneplus is number one!
