    Who are the users?
    Movie/Video fans who like to watch Youtube/Netflix etc on their OnePlus everywhere they go. Standing in bright sunlight, sitting on a plane with a phone holder, lying in bed or on the couch in the evening.

    What is the proposed function?
    Enabling gesture controls for easy screen rotations, display ratio, zoom, brightness and volume adjustments to the needs of the viewer. Two finger rotating can seamlessly change the display orientation when lying sideways; a 2 finger swipe up can increase brightness in direct sunlight; pinch to zoom for adjusting the format to the individual user preference. Disabling accidential presses of the buttons can avoid screen locks when the OnePlus is put in a phone holder. Distractions by calls or other apps can be avoided.

    What is the user value?
    Improving the user experience by enabling a burdenless movie experience with no uncontrolled display rotations, automatic brightness adjustments or accidental screen-locks.

    If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
    Oneplus Gaming mode is a good optimization for games but does not offer controls over features like screen rotation that are important for browsing around on Youtube etc. The otherwise unused touchscreen could support easy control while videos are playing.

    Burdenless experience / How will different parts of the existing OS interact with this new feature?
    The mode starts with certain apps – similarly to the gaming / reading modes
