    Dear friends,

    As HQ hits midnight, I think we can finally say 'This is the day, the long-awaited day'.

    Looking back at the past 8 years – between all the products and launches – we wonder what remains the strongest call for us, the Community, staff and users alike, to stay as passionate and excited as day one.

    The Never Settle spirit is at the core without a doubt, but that raises another question: what exactly does this 'Never Settle' that we keep talking about mean?

    Please allow me to introduce -- the Never Settle Community book.

    'Never Settle is not about perfection, it's about the constant pursuit of better.' This is the spirit we uphold since the very beginning and we’re still progressing bearing this in mind, pretty much unconsciously.

    For eight years, throughout day and night, OnePlus has never stopped to advance with leading technology and explore multiple unprecedented techniques even ahead of the industry trends. The results are the refined and pioneering products that rest proudly in your hands.


    Never Settle is not just about the product. In fact, the most important part is each and every one of you that has always been pushing further with your own Never Settle attitude, constantly putting us on a path of 'constant pursuit of better'. And yet, this still doesn't fully capture the entire essence of Never Settle.

    The Never Settle spirit is also about all the connections we create within the Community, blurring the lines between staff and user, through constant interaction that pushes each one of us to go further.


    We're more than glad to witness that in our Community, the spirit has enticed so many to carry on through days, no matter good or bad. The spirit reaches us even in the most difficult times, especially when we hear your encouraging and inspiring stories in life.

    Indeed, the Never Settle spirit is not just about us, it's about you, too.


    Among all the touching and cheerful stories we see in the Community, there're several Never Settle stories we wanted to highlight in this book, by @Bobbie63 , @Gor., @hbk1402, and @psygarden. A special thanks to you all.

    Included in the book are also some anecdotes portrayed by our own team, momentous events we've been through in our journey that we want to share with you. All in all, this book is a celebration of the 8 years of our journey with every one of you.

    Our story continues, and we look forward to even more stories shared with you. We can't wait to have the first physical copies to share with you, we hope you'll like them.

    Speaking of physical copies, I managed to reserve 5 limited-edition numbered Never Settle Community Books to share with those participating in this thread. If you want to have a chance to win one, tell us your own story with OnePlus. Whether that's a special interaction with a staff member or a Community friend, or attending a memorable event, we can't wait to hear it! We will choose 5 posts and reward them with a copy of the book.

    Hey everyone,

    As @psygarden mentioned, the book suffered a few delays and will go into production after the Chinese New Year. Thank you for your patience. We can't wait to show it to you.

    The book looks incredible and truly premium. It almost feels like the continuation of the incredible work you started with the Addition Magazine.

    Happy Birthday, OnePlus. Make it a 2022 to be remembered for all the right reasons. But before that, thank you for all the memories so far, here's to you, present, past & future.

    Happy Anniversary OnePlus 🌻🎉🎉

    Here is something that I would like to share.

    I am a travel enthusiast and I love to travel when I get a chance. I've traveled a lot within India and collected so many beautiful memories. However, I've never traveled abroad. I never thought my that wish would be fulfilled in the time when not many people are able to travel abroad which is during pandemic. I was lucky enough to travel to Iran which is in Asia and it is famous for it's architecture and hospitality. I went there in month of March and was lucky enough to experience Winter, Autumn and Spring and this experience was once in a lifetime which I never expected. Here are some of the beautiful pictures which I was able to click while my journey in Iran.
    Apart from this. I am also improving my writing skills and here are few threads which I have created recently. I hope you guys enjoy reading these.
