    Hey guyss,

    Is it me or are the clock buttons just too small?
    1. Clock
    - Can hardly switch off my alarm right if I miss the first prompt when I'm still half asleep, buttons are too small. A lot of times I missed it and ended up in the Alarm settings
    2. Timer
    - Again, dead tired from my workout, fingers are wobbly, fail to hit the stop button. Sometimes I hit it too softly, it flashed but no response. What gives
    3. Stopwatch
    - At times had trouble hitting the "Lap" button.

    Please tell me this is just me.


    Thanks peeps,
    Chris

    Hi, in 3 hrs no one has replied because, imho, they think this is probably one of the most unnecessary creation of a thread. If you have a problem with stock clock then do your research and find one that works for you?

    I don't miss my snooze/stop alarm notifications, i don't miss my bright as day buttons on timer /stop watch as per attached.

    Yes, if you have just finished a strenous workout without then perhaps with shaky, sweaty fingers and you might miss it.... But the buttons are big enough even for my sausage fingers!

    Thank you, for taking the time, though that sarcasm was uncalled for.
    Didn't know people would care about to reply within 3 hours. Oh wait, people actually don't. The irony.
    So much for OnePlus community, just another "just Google it" solution.

    Look, I apologize. Honestly, out of impulse I just didn't feel it was a helpful comment.

    I hear what you're saying, while I'd like to point out bigger fingers would fare better in this case as it has a bigger surface area. Smaller fingers, however, tend to need to be more precised as they don't cover as much.
    Smaller buttons + Bigger fingers = Less precision required to hit the buttons. Makes sense?

    I just thought this forum is a platform to voice out personal experiences and hopefully, drive to greater improvements on the smart device. After all, not to sound touche but, gotta stand behind the "Never Settle" motto right?

    I guess the Clock app on this phone just ain't suitable for my preferences.
