    We did it, team! The final #NeverSettleFilm lives up to its name with dragons, unicorns and more. Truly created hand-in-hand with the OnePlus community, just like the OnePlus 6.

    Hello friends,

    Here at OnePlus, we don’t just value our community, we learn from you. You told us you were frustrated at notifications interrupting your game play - so we gave you Gaming DND mode. You told us you still wanted a headphone jack -  so we kept the headphone jack. And soon you’ll be able to see the impact you’ve had on the creation of the OnePlus 6.

    In the build up to that though, we’re giving you the chance to have your say on something else: our advertising. You’ve always been brilliant at spreading the word, so who better!


    It goes like this: we’ve shot the bare bones of an advert here: 

    The finished version will air soon at the launch of the OnePlus 6. Until then, we want you, our community, to tell us what you want to see in it! 

    Each time we add more of your suggestions, we’ll send out a new version, so you can see it taking shape, and watch the end credits build with the names of everyone who helped to fashion it! So free your imagination and let us realize your vision.  Tell us what should be in the portraits, what you’d add to the costumes, anything at all … surprise us!  

    Let us know by tweeting with #NeverSettleFilm or commenting on the video, on the forum, on our Facebook page, anywhere you choose. Let’s build this together: your best wishes will be our command! 

    We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    Have fun!

    How about a timelapse that is shot from above a hill during night which captures an urban setting like a city in the frame where the lights are glowing and flickering and there are stars in the sky, and the timelapse ends with all the lights in the urban area forming a huge 6!
    Just a random idea I had after reading this.

    1. In the second shot, instead of the girls on roller skates. It would be cool to have someone in like an outdoor setting the device turning on, on the table, which a tight zoom shot, then flip right to transition to the girls ont he couch.

    2. Also it would be great if the girls were holding the joystics on the game pads. Otherwise maybe slap some white @dbrand skins on some xbox controllers instead to make it a little more realistic.

    Creating an editing option in Camera like adding an edit option for videos where we can select a background music or merge videos or rewind, especially incase of hyperlapse or Slo-mo. Show a video on how easy it is to edit and share the videos on the go. Because #ShotonOnePlus doesn't have to be only a photo but can be a video as well.

    create a fake cyborg with awesome camera capabilities showcasing the power of oneplus 6 camera.
    much like terminator
    Go downhill with a bike and show the stabilisation power of the camera.
    The astronaut should have a problem with it's suit, takes a oneplus 6 and calls for help, in space.

    Oneplus logo glowing on oneplus user's chest.

    The setting is like a lot of random people walking down the street, but there are those with oneplus logo glowing from its chest.
    they're the best of people. Full with energy and positivity.
    Then, the numbers keep growing and becoming better.

    That video will surely make oneplus users proud to be part of the community.

    I think a Powers of 10 (based on Charles & Ray Eames)-esque video could be cool, except starting at the edge of a black hole, voice over of the history of Oneplus, passing planets and asteroids, each being a different version of the phone, then zooming down to the 6, and stopping at the Notch of course. #MorePowerHalfThePriceNotch
