    No thanks, no preinstalled apps.

    CANNOT BE UNINSTALLED is a clear NO, no way I will not support that

    You just have to explain the need for this. There is no reason to have extra app to enable hdr.

    Please just keep Oxygen as clean as possible.
    Cannot be uninstalled? NO!

    I don't get the idea of an extra app, which enables HDR streaming. Which app should this be? A short search on Play Store didn't give any result. So this is a bit strange up to now without any further information. I would have nothing against HDR streaming, surely not, but I would love to have more insight into the circumstances, if you know what I mean.

    Or it's just as simple. The app manufacturer says - if app is preinstalled, we will enable HDR, otherwise no. Without any deep encryption and such things.

    It's rather not an app for HDR streaming but an app that supports HDR but wouldn't enable HDR streaming on OnePlus phones if it's not preinstalled.
    At least that's how I read the starting post.

    Should be available for install from the first run wizard, shouldn't have any stubs or preinstalled

    So I would like to shed some light on some most-asked questions: HDR streaming requires support both from hardware side and content providers side.

    Well, I think that's how business works. You have either to pay to be whitelisted or scratch each other backs. Though I'm all for making it uninstallable and then whitelist the devices. Otherwise it feels like kind of blackmail.

    If it can be, at least, disabled.. I don't see why not.
    I also prefer a clean OS rather than full of bloatware that supposedly makes the user experience better but end up making the phone slower (I'm looking at you, Sammy).

    Also, you haven't mentioned which devices would get it. I'd assume OP3 and up, is that correct?

    Waiting for clarification =)

    If the other devices don't seem to require a "stub" then why should OnePlus? (just a friendly question)

    HDR streaming seems to associate with video streaming, especially 4k video. as I have no intention to watch full length movie on my phone, I don't need extra app for it. I actually tried my best to use web base as much as possible, like YouTube, Twitter, etc.

    Was taking a break, reading other comments, thinking about them, but still: NO!
    If any content provider wants to dictate Oneplus and us as the users, we should always say NO!!!
    They should be glad to have us,since we re paying them for watching their content, but no- they want more money, more control, want to force us in a way, i do not want.

    No more, thank you.

    Once this started, we will get facecrap, crapchat, whatever shitty apps,no thanks. OxygenOS is one of the best android versions right now ( Not just my opinion, but what i read in several tests, etc.) and there s a good reason why. As @Adam Krisko mentioned correctly: Our displays are too small ,maybe not bright enough for such a dynamic range so what? HDR for the sake of?

    Marketing Buzzwords hype?

    Actually most modern tv screens are HDR capable and have apps installed or installable to show HDR content. No need to watch a great HDR movie on that tiny little screen of my OP6.

    There are way more important things on our phones you can make better.
