    That's not additional... that's how much storage the ROM allocates. It just shows you this time.

    You should re read why I said because users don't report feedback in right away.

    May be its Android P system which requires more storage.

    did everything in the instructions, oem unlock, downloaded the file but the local upgrade says it has a lower version number so no luck...
    bootloader doesnt even give me the option to install from zip [e]1f61e[/e]

    Answers to the most commonly and repeatedly asked questions!!

    Q. Why is my brightness low after upgrading to Android Pie 9.0?

    A: Google introduced new algorithm for the brightness which will give more control to the user specially in darker environments. The user have to train the brightness preferences for some time in different lighting conditions they use their device so that the device learns it and then adjusts the brightness automatically after that.

    Q. Where is clear Cache in Android Pie?

    A: Android Pie does not have option to clear it in Settings.One has to clear cache by individual app now.

    Q. Why is there no Digital Well-Being available in OnePlus 6 running Pie?

    A: Digital Wellbeing is currently available only to Pixel devices and Nokia 7 Plus. This may change in near future and OnePlus 6 may be added to its supported device list.

    Q.Why is "X" app crashing in my phone running Android Pie?

    A: Many apps are still not updated to support Android Pie, that is the reason they are not able to run in the new OS. Contacting the app developer will be much more helpful.

    Q. My storage is using extra space after update to Pie, why?

    A: Android Pie needs extra space due to new partition system A/B, where there is copy of system partition for seamless updates introduced by Google, thus using extra space.
    More here:

    Q. I downgraded to stable channel, but did not receive the update to Pie, why?

    A: The wide-rollout has begun, its only matter of time, you will get the notification for the new update.

    Q. I did not like Pie, can i go back to Oreo?

    A: Yes you can, the method is same as going to stable from Beta. The method is posted in Page no.1 of this thread, Sticky post no.2.

    Q. Why is my battery draining so fast after update?

    A: This is a major upgrade, you should give it some time to settle before the battery starts working normally. Also battery calibration is always a good way to get most out of it.

    Q. I do not like the new Recents layout, what can i do?

    A: Unfortunately, nothing can be done about it. Its how Google designed it.

    Q. I cannot activate the new Pill gestures, why?

    A: Sometimes update messes up app data and settings. To solve this clear OnePlus Launcher data and reboot the device.

    Q. My Play Store is showing "uncertified" after i downgraded to stable, how can i solve it?

    A: Clear Google Play Services data and Play store data and Reboot. Let Play store update automatically and it should change the status to Certified.

    Q. Why is Power Button Google assistant activation not available in stable Pie?

    A: This feature is still in testing phase and thus available currently only in Open beta 3 and later builds.

    Q. Why cannot i use volume buttons to control the ringtone volume in Android Pie?

    Google has made change to it, now we can change media volume by default. OnePlus has provided a shortcut to directly go into settings to make it easier to change the ringtone volume.

    Q. Why is YouTube covering the Notch in Pie when i pinch to zoom?

    A: The latest update to the YouTube app now embraces the Notch thus, it does not appear in Full Screen options and covers the Notch area. However, i have found an interesting work-around. If you are in YouTube app version 13.15.61, it does not cover the Notch. Upgrading to latest version will lose this ability.

    Q. Why my Fingerprint does not work, after my phone is in standby for long time?

    A: The Fingerprint service goes to sleep and thus doesn't allow unlocking the phone.
    To avoid this, the current work-around it to turn Off Standby Optimization in Advanced Optimization Battery Settings or wake up the phone using Power button after long standby.

    Q. Why does not my screen light-up on incoming calls?

    This happens when the Phone app settings is messed up.
    To solve this:
    Touch and hold on Phone app and Tap on App Info.
    Now tap on
    Notifications and then tap on Incoming Calls(Not the Checkbox).
    Select Behavior and make sure its set to Make Sound and Popup on Screen
    This should allow the incoming calls to notify you lighting up the screen
    Thanks to @ngydat

    Q. My clock shows alarm notification 2-hrs prior to actual alarm/ my alarm is missing, what can i do?

    You can follow the steps below to fix it:
    Go to Settings>Apps & notifications>Display all apps>Clock>Notifications.
    Now, there are 2 things to do :
    a) Press on "Clock" (
    Not the Checkbox)>Behaviour
    Choose "Silent display" : this way you won't have the sound notification 2 hours before schedule

    b) Press on "Alarm" (
    Not the Checkbox)>Behaviour
    Choose "Sound alert and display on screen" : If you choose another option, the screen won't turn on when the alarm rings. And you also want to set the sound alert to none. Otherwise, when the alarm rings, you'll also hear the notification sound.
    Thanks to @B_Wrath , @ngydat

    Q. Why is my slow-mo videos stuttering?
    It seems to be a known bug currently. Developers are aware of the bug and are working on it. The fix could be released in future update.

    Please feel free to add more in case i missed.
    Anyone can read these and get their answers before making any bug reports.
    Thanks to @camohan for putting the idea forward.

    Hi, received the pie update early morning today. Works well and changes are good. However all my past text manages now do not show on which sim card they had been sent. Is anybody else facing the same experience?
    A small question mark appears next to the messages where sim no. is usually displayed.

    Just recieved Android Pie update on my OnePlus 6.
    Thanks Team!!!

    Few suggestions though:
    1. Please add option to customise App Drawer background, either in themes or display settings.
    We have limited option of White, Black, Translucent white (with default theme).

    2. If you could provide update with few more additional fonts, it would be great.
    Currently available fonts are pretty much same for normal eyes.

    3. Option to change colour if quick setting panel. You can have additional colour combinations like G-board themes. (Just suggestions, please keep surprising us).

    And, kudos to all developer and testing team for such smooth and subtle OS... [e]2728[/e][e]2728[/e][e]2728[/e]

    Awesome! Well done, bro!

    I'm wondering if it is just me or others are also noticing lags with Gboard, especially when holding backspace key? It feels way too slow now, and I am not sure if this has anything to do with any new feature or anything
