    China Mobile uses a different signalling method vs everyone else (TD-SCDMA vs WCDMA) on 3G and above.
    China Unicom & China Telecom uses WCDMA.
    Google's services are not available in China, so I presume that the Chinese version doesn't have the GApps (including Google Play), but refer to some of the local App stores (there are several).

    Caveat emptor: I haven't used a Chinese version of Oneplus' products, so the above is just conjecture from how it worked when I lived in China.

    Hi all,

    When someone calls me doesn't show the name of the.person (just the number) but if I go to the history I can see who call me (if it is already a contact) . Anyone knows how to enable the name of the caller when someone call?

    All I know is that living in China, every phone I bought here (Sonys and Xiaomis) has worked flawlessly when I travelled back west :)
    And although I haven't done that yet with my HydrogenOS China 5T, I expect it to act no differently. *fingers crossed*

    Can we please get the option to disable haptic feedback when using the fingerprint sensor?

    Hey is there a way to rotate the screen 180°. That feature was there in oneplus one. It's pretty useful i would say

    I'm not sure if the built in dialler app supports it, maybe try a different dialler app?

    Some launchers allow it, usually with a setting that you have to manually change. Try Nova.

    Malaysia. Through authorized seller that using name "oneplus.my". Price here is $100 more expensive, I didn't expect we to have this exclusion.

    Hmm, that's strange. For me OnePlus.my doesn't come up with anything (maybe region locked). Also the authorised retailers are:

    BrightStar: http://www.brightstarcorp.com.my/brands/oneplus/
    DirectD: http://directd.com.my/
    RedClick: http://www.11street.my/store/oneplusmobile https://www.redclick.com.my/

    Oops, My bad. "Oneplus.my" was the seller on shopee which I was considered to buy from. But I ended up buying from redclick on 11street. I confused because they offer the same free gift and "oneplus.my" listed on Brightstar, so I assumed they were the same person. The seller told me warranty will be void if rooted. I have Brightstar warranty card in the box.
    Also it is funny that brightstar updated their authorized retailer list after I bought the phone. The list was longer and I had to call 5-6 retailers, but some of them didn't even sell the device and some just do preorder.

    I found a neat little trick.
    When I'm shooting video, I was getting annoyed with notifications/vibrations making sound while shooting if I forgot to move the slider to silent. So, what I found out was you can go to "Gaming Do Not Disturb" and add the Camera app to turn it("do not disturb") on automatically. I didn't think "Gaming Do Not Disturb" would work for the camera but it does!

    Can you permanently hide the bottom nav bar without root?

    I use Edge Gestures for back, home, multitask, last app and brightness control with the bottom bar hidden, but it still pops up on the home screen (can't hide it in Nova Launcher) and when you swype up from the bottom. What I want is absolutely no bottom bar, neither on the home screen, nor via swype gesture. Any way to permanently disable it, preferably without root?

    Unfortunately, I don't think it is possible as OnePlus wouldn't have accounted for people using third party apps to go home/multitask etc instead of the navbar buttons.
