    Greetings everyone,

    This month, on the 7th of July, we hosted the first ever edition of Open Ears Forum in India. We invited 30 of our core community members from different parts of India to come together and contribute towards something they are all passionate about - The future of OnePlus. We were glad to host all the attendees in the beautiful coastal state of Goa where we had the opportunity to sit back and take a look at the OnePlus journey in India over the years, and brainstorm, ideate and collect feedback directly from the fans who care about OnePlus the most.

    What Happened

    All 30 members were divided into 5 groups with one group leader who was part of the OnePlus staff. We had Carl, our Product Managers - Szymon, Mukul and Aditya and our Beta Program Manager - Manu, joining the groups to represent OnePlus. We began with a fun (and intense :p) team building activity wherein the groups had to pitch a quirky product to a panel of judges. After this, we had two sessions where Diego, Head of the Content Team at OnePlus spoke about the OnePlus strategy and Vikas Agarwal, the General Manager of OnePlus India, gave attendees an idea about marketing in India and also collected feedback about the same.

    We broke for lunch, got back and kicked off our afternoon sessions starting with Szymon and Mukul who gave us an overview of Product in India. Moving on, we discussed key requirements for OnePlus as a product and the community came up with solutions.

    Overall, Open Ears Forum in Goa held enormous value in terms of user suggestions and feedback. We’re proud to have one of the most passionate communities of OnePlus right here in India!

    Hope you guys work on the feedbacks which are given :)
    It's good to see now OnePlus is showing interest in Indian market and taking feedback of Indian users.
    Hope someone had given feedback to bring back FM radio in your future devices because the threads about it are insane here :D

    I did gave..shhhhh dont tell anyone..!! Though I personally don't feel the need and that we should start accepting the change, but being a Moderator and working for the community I thought it would be a good chance to atleast float the ask. I will leave it on the company to decide.
