    Last weekend, we had the pleasure of welcoming a group of passionate fans to our bi-annual OnePlus Open Ears Forum for customer support and products.

    To cater to OnePlus’ Nordic users, this year’s first Open Ears event took place in Stockholm, Sweden, making it the first Open Ears event to take place in the Nordics.

    The Open Ears platform allows us to directly interact with our customers and community to gather feedback and suggestions face-to-face. Not just that, it also allows us to share our progress as we look for new ways to improve our services. Last year’s discussions highlighted some specific areas to focus on improving customer service for users. This resulted in us adding two more repair centers in Europe to speed up repair time in addition to delivering a new backup feature for users and improving our FAQs & Policies.

    We also shared the Early 2018 updates from last year's discussions, such as Video Guides, which are now available on our support page here. A one-time resolution, our e-mail channels have improved significantly since last year. Work continues on a new Repair Status system for clear and user-friendly status updates and a new Diagnostics and Troubleshooting Tool is in the testing stage and will be available once the internal and beta testing is complete.

    I'm sure you want to know what happened during the event. We started the day with Lasertag. Carl met all the fans and we split into three groups and had a lot of fun.

    Congratulations Team Green! My team will win next time @Carl ;)


    After an eventful morning, we did a Pop-Quiz at the venue about our products and services and our fans surprised us with amazing results, this shows just how dedicated OnePlus fans are.

    BTW, A OnePlus Staff also got 2nd place, guess who?


    The three teams were then guided to discussion cubes by Team leads, where they discussed issues related to our services and participated in brainstorming sessions to find solutions to top issues. We received a lot of helpful feedback and suggestions on how to improve our support.

    Sherlock Holmes challenge, our fans were excited to participate in an escape room-like game to solve 15 mysteries.

    Congrats Team Red!


    Our product manager @ZENG XI surprised our fans by showing his early OnePlus phone prototypes collection, each prototype has a special story with the product manager, we think it's the most precious thing for both OnePlus team and our fans.

    Xi collected product feedback from the fans in a professional OnePlus way and gave away all the 7 special prototypes to fans for the best product feedback. To make this Open Ears forum even special, we shared a little secret with our fans at the event.

    We ended the day with a nice dinner.


    OnePlus would like to thank our users for an inspiring weekend. We are excited to start working on becoming even better at what we do in the future – all thanks to your input!

    Here's a video

    P.S. A second post will be up soon where we will talk about Open Ears Forum 2 top issues and solutions.

    Is @ZENG XI the lucky guy who has the walnut styleswap for the OnePlus One? Maybe he can show off every week another prototype on the forums to get some discussion about the individual advantages going?!
    Thanks for all these events :D
