    Hey everyone!

    How's it going? We hope you're all doing well in these tough times. We're back with a recap on a recent experience we had with you guys. The online Open Ears Forum was held not long ago, and we're proud to announce, it was a great success.

    We received close to 1200 applications from a lot of enthusiastic community members from the OnePlus. After a lot of thought and consideration, 25 participants were shortlisted based on varied demographics, occupations, and lifestyles for assorted observations.

    We prepared a structured process for our participants who followed it to the T. Thoughts and observations were noted down, patterns were highlighted, and solutions were ideated and prioritized based on the theme, all on a trackable spreadsheet.

    What was the theme you ask? Well, we kept as relevant as we could during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Given our new lifestyle, behavior, and a pause on a global scale, we've lost a lot of time being preoccupied with the internet or other unproductive activities. Rightfully so, the key objective of this workshop was to grasp the core problems around the theme of "Avoiding distractions and multitasking".

    As working/studying/chilling from the vicinity of our homes is the new norm, concentrating on anything wholeheartedly has become a herculean task. Or even taking a break from your workplace/switching off can be difficult when you're always in that zone, i.e., your home. In short, our attention spans have taken a significant hit. The participants focused on these distractions and prioritized the issues based on a set of intricate metrics; frequency, impact, and persistence (Lage raho!). Though we understand, the interests of these chosen ones may not represent all of us at the OnePlus user community, but it definitely nudges us in the direction.

    Finally, after a lot of pondering, our participants shared their views on the theme. Their ideal solutions were discussed for the top concerns without being bound by technological limitations and practicality. Our focus was to understand daily problems and scenarios rather than coming up with solutions to combat them all. The key takeaways from this Open Ears Forum weren't to decide what to do next, but rather understand and start building a basic plan, and ultimately broaden our understanding of multitasking and distractions as a concept. With that done, we are now on our way to find the solutions and get back to with something new!

    We'd like to thank the participants and everyone who expressed interest in this discussion and for making it a productive one. With all the information and ideas gathered, we hope to create a better product for our users, as well as help them achieve their goals without any obstacles.

    Never Settle.

    Making world a better place??? Hey man, this wasn't a meeting on how to tackle global warming, pollution, terrorism, racism, etc. It was just a general meeting to get insights on how to make an "operating system" better. 😛[e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]
