    Things still not fixed ...

    No 1 = Green tint issues and image retention (it is better when using dc dimming but not perfect)

    No 2 = pure black dark mode instead of the ugly grey colour in system apps like phone dialer see third image .

    No 3 = We still have to swipe down twice for brightness slider when every other Android device it's one swipe and you can see the slider .

    No 4 = Camera is still terrible on the OnePlus 8 . that can't be fixed and never will .

    No 5 = Still no AOD .

    No 6 = when swiping the notification bar down onto the screen it still makes a black background look grey .

    No 7 = random brightness changes (flickering on grey backgrounds like Gmail and Google play store .

    OnePlus you have to do better .

    No 3: Google (and OnePlus) prefer that you train the brightness algorithm, instead of adjusting it manually all the time.

    No 4: There is no such thing as a terrible camera anymore. That would be a Nokia from before 2010.

    No 5: OnePlus already said it will come around September/October.

    no 2 blame Google it's their design and choice for dark mode in material design guidelines

    no 3 - No it's not

    no 4 - why mention it then?

    no 5 isn't coming till August September (they already said this)

    That guy is just complaining to complain. Sound he shouldn't be buying a OnePlus.

    No. 6... That is a feature there for a reason.. If the background did not grey out and you are in dark mode. It would be IMPOSSIBLE to differentiate your black notification bubbles from the black content you might have onscreen.

    Maybe that is why only India and EU was released on both 8 and 8 Pro... To fix that

    But it is still more useful and refreshing than the uncritical bleating and ad tasting parroting. Debating concerns is useful.

    Yeah, I would like to buy a black OP 8 256GB, but in my country in Europe there is only this green and blue color available, both for the 8 and 8 pro. I'm a simple male guy, I don't like color stuffs, especially not these not really masculine colors. But I always buy a Spigen thought armor for my OP phones, and it is a suitable case.

    Quick question , When I try to use Wireless direct after I connect to other one plus device, i couldn't find a selection wifi direct in shared bottom. The only thing I shared was Bluetooth but with slow files speed.
    Does this problem been fixed ?
