    Tomorrow we’ll be joining National Day of Unplugging with our very own #NoPhoneDay.

    We believe that it’s time to pursue a smarter relationship with our smartphones.It should fit seamlessly into your life – there when you want it, away when you don’t. Your life should be burdenless – much like your experience with your phone.

    So, as we prepare to switch off tomorrow for #NoPhoneDay, we want to hear from you. What hardware and software features would you like to see introduced or improved in our next device that would help you take some time away from your phone?

    Perhaps it’s a regular update on how much time you’ve spent that day scrolling through your social media apps. Maybe it’s a feature that will make your general user experience even faster and more burdenless, so you have more time for offline activities.

    Either way, we want to hear from all of you – comment below with your ideas and good luck switching off tomorrow!

    Automatic call answering function which gives a recorded response when the device is set on do not disturb mode.

    do you really need this?
    You need yet another app to monitor your usage instead of just using a bit of common sense around your device?

    A new mode in the OOS which when activated, blocks all multimedia apps and background processes, and only important apps like phone, calculator and messaging apps can be used. This was a feature in some smartphones for battery saving, but I think it can also be a great way of dealing with smartphone addiction.

    Which nation are you talking about? Certainly not India. And if it's a specific nation, you should mention it.

    So, I have a smartband, which vibrates per notification, every night I have to manually put my phone to no sound / vibration + no BT. Wouldn't it be nice to just flip the phone face down, within a profile, and get all set up because it's in a range of hours?

    I mean, if the phone is face down, between 11pm and 6am, put DnD on, disconnect BT, lower volume for everything and just stop it via either flipping it again, or alarm.

    There are so many third party apps that does the same thing as digital well being. If OnePlus wants to create something that is interweaved within Oxygen OS please create something that would be lightweight and not add bloatware feel.

    adding some sample screenshots from one such app for the same.

    Being able to monitor your use and how many times you turn on your device makes it easier for the user to see the bigger picture.

    Saying that common sense alone makes no sense as you can't always predict your usage when your smartphone is being used for work, entertainment, socializing and more.

    If digital wellbeing is pointless why would Google make such a feature? Or will you argue it was made for those without common sense?

    A secondary chip for processing images would be good. So we can get images as good as pixel devices.

    Why can't you create a software that locks your smartphone for a certain amount of time - meaning that you can't unlock it even if you have the password andnotifications are also hidden ? Also, you'll have to make a disclaimer so that people know that they won't be able to access their smartphone !

    It would be great to have an option to choose a day/month in the scheduled power on/off menu. I don't turn off my phone every night but it's good turning it off once a week/month.

    I absolutely loved this feature back when I had a Samsung A5 2016. Whenever I didn't want to drain my battery for just watching the time, I always turned this on. I would be grateful to have this feature here too

    Digital wellbeing on top of my list, hands down.

    Apart from that, being able to set a limit on the number of times we unlock our phone, with the phone turning maybe greyscale or just sending us alerts that we've exceeded our own set threshold.

    And oh, an in-built app from OnePlus that gives us information like nearest book stores offering discounts, or cafes nearby hosting public events, etc., So we can head outdoors and experience life first hand.
