    I overslept to work because that damn alarm did not go off! That was few days ago, and since then I set my wife's S5 to start alarm 10 minutes later. Thank god I did that, today this happened again. Every time I get to bed early - coincidence? I don't think so. It's the damn doze. When I go sleep early because I have to get up at 5:30, it seem that few hours is enough to kick in and sleep the alarm to death.

    And yes, I did switch "battery optimization" to "not optimized" for the clock app.

    OnePlus do something with that! We can't have unreliable phones, especially unreliable alarm clocks!

    I set alarms for each day of the week when I received my phone almost a month ago and it has never failed to go off

    Keep fingers crossed. I received my phone few days into December, and that's the second time... You know the point, people can't 'wonder' if their alarm will go off in the morning or not. Alarm have to be rock solid sure thing.

    Just wondering. Did you receive OTA update few days ago? What's your fw version?

    This happens to me if my phone is not plugged in to power. Oneplus6T using Alarm Clock Plus.

    I have also experienced this while using Google's alarm clock app (not the stock one plus alarm). This tells me it might be a settings/operating system issue. my alarm volume was up all the way. OxygenOS was updated to it's most recent version. The one thing I noticed was that the battery optimization was turned on for the alarm app, so I turned it off by going through Settings>Apps & Notifications>Special App Access> Battery Optimization then select your alarm application, and finally selecting "don't optimize"

    Hopefully, that solves the problem. I'll post back here if it does.
