#PMChallenge Alert Slider Disable

    Who are the users? Everyone who wants to streamline their OnePlus experience

    What is the proposed function? Allow for the option to disable the alert slider for optimal user volume control by those who do not want the slider.

    What is the user value? Those who do not want to settle for the alert slider regime may disable it for regular volume control. They will once again be liberated to go to silent/vibrate simply by pushing the volume down rocker.

    Are there existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior? This functionality exists on all non-OnePlus smartphones. This feature to disable the alert slider on a OnePlus will be superior to all others in that it is on a OnePlus device. OnePlus is fantastic in all other respects. #NeverSettle

    One of the top selling points of oneplus devices is the alert slider.
    So disabling it wouldn't make sense.

    I get that. Having an option to disable the alert slider does not alienate those who like it. Ya dig?

    So just have an alert slider that does nothing then?

    Why not still use it by changing its behavior to open apps or something?

    Can you explain how this would “streamline” user experience?

    Sure. It's a buzzword to make it sound more appealing.

    But to give you a more satisfying answer it would streamline the experience for users like me who find it cumbersome to access the slider with a finger. In addition, automation apps are hindered in controlling volume to DND, Vibrate, or Silent since the device is forced to be in Ring (or some other combination of those settings).

    I agree they should allow the volume to go to zero even if the slider is in ring mode. But disabling the slider feature altogether isn’t a good idea.

    Let me be clear. This is only an option (stress the word option) to disable. I do not want to force a disabled alert slider on people who like the slider. Similar to that I don't want the alert slider forced on me. Ya dig?
