    Hi everyone

    My OnePlus 7 is my first OnePlus, and I always have been planning to buy one. The reason was it’s great design and some reviews I’d read before. Now I’ve one and I like it so much. It has great design, great physical architecture, it’s well made and the most important thing is it’s UI which is actually an initial and important factor in manufacturing such gadgets. It’s UI has designed graphically beautiful and works very smooth.

    But unfortunately, these phones have several basic and simple but initial shortages that you CANNOT find in older phones even with android Lollipop. And these are disadvantages of OnePlus 7 comparing with its competitors.

    1- No confirmation for Power Off and Restart.

    2- No feature to hide folders

    3- No capability to zoom texts in some apps which need it eg: SMS (This one shocked me, I can’t believe)

    4- No separated volumes has designed for media, ringtone, notifications and system sounds. (What!? How could it be!?)

    5- Phone has a problem recognizing some app notifications as notification sound. It recognizes them as media so when you change ringtone volume it doesn’t work for some app notifications. I think it’s because the phone recognizes the sounds by analyzing the file format of notifications.

    6- Notification sound and vibration don't work properly especially for Instagram. But it works for Instagram parallel app!!!

    7- To change the sound volumes user has to use the volume button then tap on the settings icon to enter the notification setting. That’s too long. All 4 sound categories volume sliders could be opened by pushing the volume button.

    8- Camera needs “Tap on the screen to focus and capture” feature. It helps to capture photos as fast as it is possible.

    9- Camera doesn’t have any “Voice commands”!!!!?

    10- The phone has no notification reminder feature. If you lose a notification, nothing will remind that you have one.
    Suggestion: The notification message can appear every 60sec. on the screen.

    11- Quick settings under status bar can include more settings icons like silent, vibration, etc.

    12- And I think OnePlus strongly needs a theme changing capability, including backgrounds (app, lock,…), fonts, icons. The current themes are too limited. It’ll cause the UI to become boring after a few months.

    If other users found any other shortages, please add under this thread.

    Try getting yourself a custom ROM. OOS focuses on being close to the stock UI that Google has and it has been the same, it just adds a few handy tweeks that makes it a little better.
