camohan, Feb 4, 2019 : Hey Software team, hope you are doing good. Today, I want to suggest a very small but IMO a very useful feature which can enhance user experience and at the same time it does not require much design changes. I am not an expert though on design implementation. To start with lets answer some of the questions Who are the users? This feature can be added in any of the OnePlus device. So this is not device specific. What is the proposed function? The proposed function is to get rid of spam or unwanted sms immediately. What is the user value? The value addition this function or feature can provide is enable user to keep the message inbox clean. If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior? I have not seen it before, I may be wrong though as I have been using OnePlus phones from 4 years. However, I have seen this in custom roms. Be sure to: -Explain the logic behind this product and how you want it to be implemented In present times, the influx of spam calls and spam messages have increased manifold. I can speak from India perspective. In order to explain why this feature is important, let me give an example. I was looking for a new house and I had registered my phone number at various online websites. Now my requirement of house is fulfilled but I still get atleast 3 to 5 sms daily for offers on new house. Moreover, some agencies sell phone numbers to other companies which increase the spam manifold. With this new proposed feature, I can read the message by sliding down the notification shade and decide if I want to keep it or delete. Immediate delete button will enable the user to delete the sms instantly thereby getting rid of the spam. -Include directions and details via diagram sketches. Draw each screen and show the flow from screen to screen. (See the design principles post if you’d like an example.) Here is the sketch. Apologies for the ugly handwriting and a shabby home screen : My proposal here is to add the delete button highlighted in green above. We will use the following questions to scrutinize your pitch: From the Product department – does it contribute to a burdenless experience? Yes, I believe this will be burdenless experience as it will really not consume much of the RAM or battery. From the developers - how will different parts of the existing OS interact with this new feature? The proposed function will interact with messaging app and therefore the other parts of the OS will not be affected. From UX Design – what will the user experience be like? Does the current flow result in the optimal user journey? User will be able to reduce clutter and spam instantly. I hope this meets the basic criteria of the PM challenge concept and adds value to the users and to the existing Oxygen OS. Cheers.
