    only yes if the pre installated app can be removed later, if not keep the oxygen OS clean or we might as well get an iPhone!

    No and no, but anyway if 2018 thought us something is that whatever the majority chose you do the opposite.

    Open to a stub? Yes.
    Cannot be uninstalled? No.

    Any apps which don't provide absolutely necessary functionality (phone, messages) should be removable. HDR isn't one. Still peeved that Chrome can't be removed tbh.

    No preloaded apps please, we love OnePlus as the user experience is close to stock and better. Don't spoil the "Pure" OnePlus experience. Another caption for OnePlus, "Power to the User", which makes us go for OnePlus phones.

    please also look into streaming from OnePlus to popular platforms like twitch & YouTube. for some reason videos look pixelated.

    I have done online update ,after the update phone showed message phone is getting upgraded.but phone got disconnected & it was not getting on .
    I went to service centre they told me that they have to format the phone & will cost you Rs250/- the invoice is attached.
    One more person came after some time with same issue the same reason given to him that your WiFi might have disconnected while downloading the update.
    but I feel this is completely incorrect reason given.
    We have wasted our time, mobile data & money at no fault of us.
    Please look into this matter seriously.
    looking forward for your reply.

    I believe the days of "uninstallable" apps need to come to an end. Take a look at the interest from non-TMobile-activated phones to see what I mean (myself included). "Bloatware" regardless of source, diminishes the end user experience by taking away storage, memory, and screen real estate when it cannot be removed.

    I understand the business model challenges that drive the decision, but more and more users have finally had enough. The biggest reasons to switch either AWAY FROM Samsung (et al) devices or TOWARD Pixel devices:

    1) Bloatware avoidance (aka a"clean" Android OS)
    2) Freedom/flexibility of the user experience
    3) Fast time-to-market OS and security updates

    My decision to switch from Samsung devices (S3, S6) after 7 years was the result of my OnePlus 6T adding a third item to that list, one that even Google can no longer achieve: VALUE.

    I have no issue with including a stub/app as long as it can be removed. Everyone wins in this situation. Quality, desirable products and services "sell" themselves and demonstrate value on their own merit and don't require artificial conditions to be applied.

    Keep in mind that end user adoption is driven by positive user experiences, not through forced adoption. A big part of the tremendous and rapidly growing success and reputation of OnePlus was built by delivering exceptional experiences.

    Please carefully consider this argument while evaluating the results of the survey.

    Thanks for listening!

    If this will work on older devices like the 5 and 5T, I'm all for it
