Gary C., Dec 7, 2018 : With new apps springing up and constantly raising people’s expectations, we’re always thinking about new user needs and what else needs to be improved. Chatting over coffee one afternoon, we discussed whether we’ve neglected a key nature of the mobile phone. As a must-have for everyday life, a mobile phone should be a companion for people wherever and whenever. Then the word “warmth” came to us. OnePlus product experiences should not be ice-cold and mechanical, but as if our devices were built by actual humans for other human beings. With this in mind, we embarked on a plan codenamed "100 Sweet Moments", where we would introduce 100 heartwarming elements in our products. This plan got off to a rough start and we had to spend time getting everyone on our team on board. After hours of open and frank discussion, which was only possible due to our great company culture, we came to an agreement on how to carry out 100 Sweet Moments. We’d love to share our rationale behind a few of these elements. Community Invitation Letter photo by @Falk Thieme When you unbox theOnePlus 6T, there's a handwritten invitation letter in the box. Each of our products is made through the effort of every employee and made possible by our community. Pete believes that a thank-you letter is required to express gratitude to our closest partners and that it must be delivered along with the device to the user, like the finishing touch to a senior project. The handwritten letter may be a simple gesture, but it shows the gratitude we feel. If you haven’t already, please join the community and let us communicate as friends! Yoga Lady It can be frustrating when you call someone and there’s no answer. Perhaps you just hang up and try again later. Is it possible that you’ve caught them in the middle of something? Perhaps your friend might be swimming, jogging or doing yoga. We added an imaginative touch to our UI design, so that you’re not just left with a beeping sound. Check the animation here. Flight Mode When we travel by plane, we always turn on flight mode for safety purposes. Flight mode used to be just a button, but we thought about how significant flying is - it represents a journey, whether it be an adventurous solo trip or a sweet family vacation. We added an animation to depict your journey. Since then, the flight mode has been endued with life. 100 Sweet Moments were created with the vision to add creative and fun elements to basic phone features, to add heartwarming touches and make your daily device experience a more intimate one. The sweetest success of our plan will be when adding human elements to our product experiences is intuitive to the mind of every product manager, designer and engineer on our team.100 Sweet Moments is our first attempt to add a human element to the user interface you use every day. We are open to discussion and would love to hear what you would like to see more of. Can you find other sweet moments on your phone? Feel free to share what you find in the comments below.
