    Hi everyone,

    It has been 2 weeks since the IDEAS 2.0 was officially open again on Sep 28th, and by October 11, we had received nearly two thousands new ideas. We can't thank you enough for all your enthusiasm and passion on this co-creation event. Below are the Top 7 most liked ideas from the first round. Our OS team are now reviewing and evaluating the selected ideas. The internal discussion will be conducted and we will reply to all the top 7 ideas by Oct 23. Stay tuned!

    Didn't make to the top 7 last time? No worries! The second round of IDEAS is now starting! Visit in www.oneplus.com/communityideas, submit your ideas and share on social media, make your ideas heard!

    1. Hole punch camera notification alerts - by @Amit mizrahi
    [Under Consideration]
    Getting notified of incoming messages without waking your phone is indeed an intuitive design. Our product team will look carefully into this idea and delve in a probable solution with low risk of the screen burn while achieving both functional and aesthetic purposes. Stay tuned as we’ll keep you posted on the progress here.

    [Not Adopted] (Updated on Nov 16th)​
    After further evaluation, we think currently it’s still premature to adopt this solution on our devices considering the risk of screen burn. But we realize the demand for getting notified of incoming messages without waking your phone does exist, so we’ll keep looking for better ways to cater to such requirements.

    2. Desktop Mode - by @Ardit G
    [Not Adopted]
    We agree that the it is quite a cool idea to achieve multitasking for users to extend their smartphone devices to desktop experience by connecting a physical component like a keyboard, mouse or monitor. But the product development actually takes more investigation and evaluation from concept to production. For now we’ll need more information, thus requesting more valid and valuable input from our Community. Keep posting your ideas in more detail and we’re always open to reconsidering it.

    3. Dark mode to be black instead of grey, or at least option for both - by @ashrhmn
    [Under Consideration]

    [Adopted] (
    Updated on Nov 16th)​
    We heard you and understand that some of our users want an alternative mode of true dark. Actually we’ve also been thinking about optimizing the current dark mode. We hope to offer you a smoother experience with more options - for example, an enhanced, weaker and softer dark mode. Stay tuned!

    4. Partial ScreenShot - by @yashwant24
    [Under Consideration]

    [Adopted] (Updated on Nov 16th)​
    We believe this is a great feature and will be handy for many users who take screenshots often. We'd like to let you know that this is one of the features in our roadmap to build next. Internally we are evaluating the possibility and timeline of this feature. Please keep the ideas coming and stay tuned as we’ll bring more updates to our Community.

    5. Classic layout to oxygen os 11 - by @MatsuJ
    [Under Consideration]
    Thanks for sharing this suggestion. The reason why we revamp the whole UI and UX design is to provide our users with an even more intuitive and smoother OS experience. We’re trying to present a more user-friendly to serve a wider range of users. But we do realize some of our users still prefer the old design and would like an option to switch. We’ll keep listening to your voice and take your thoughts seriously.

    [Not Adopted] (Updated on Nov 17th)​
    Thanks for sharing this suggestion. We know that different users have different preferences towards the design and UI. However we have tested the new design for several months, and we're happy to find that it began to grow on more and more people. Turns our it is a change that would stand the test of time, so we'll keep it as it is for now. Still we will keep exploring ways to achieve a better and smoother OS experience.

    6. Work with social media companies to improve camera optimization - by @mr_leel
    [Under Consideration]
    Thank you for sharing your idea with us. Actually we’ve been closely collaborating with Snapchat in bringing more interesting and fun features to our users. And we’ll continue to do so. Stay tuned and we’ll bring more updates to our Community.

    [Not Adopted] (Updated on Nov 16th)​
    It is very unfortunate that we did not end up adopting this recommendation. Considering that we don't actively compress photos when uploading, it's often the case of the third parties app for their own compression algorithms. However, we will keep working with the third parties in improving the experience together.

    7. Add a FPS counter option to Game Space - by @dsmonteiro
    We do understand your concern and are happy to let you know that this idea is adopted! Actually we’ve been working on it for some time. Stay tuned for a future system update.

    All the adopted ideas will be announced on Nov 17. Please stay tuned and keep voting for your favorite ideas here in www.oneplus.com/communityideas.

    There have been some really good ideas so far.

    Does anyone know of a way to sort Round 2 entries only in order of popularity?

    Wait till 23rd. You'll see most of the above ideas being rejected. Pretty sure. FPS counter will surely be accepted.
