    By providing timely updates to all of your phone models.. that would be a best way to start.

    EDIT- Rather focusing just on the newer models.

    One thing I'd like to see is Google feed on OnePlus Launcher.

    I am not crazy about customizing my launcher and OnePlus launcher delivers what I'd like to change (names, icon packs, and not so hidden but still hidden space to name a few). I guess bonus would be dark mode on Google feed, which only Google can offer :D #ExtraStuffingPlease

    What about unique emojis or a version of "Animoji" to make texting more fun? Or more fun camera filters or options?

    I'd love it if the oxygen automatically formed app folders based on category or usage on the home screen (or any of the home screens) like automatically put all the social media apps like FB, Twitter, Insta in one folder on the desktop, messaging in another folder, email clients in a third, games into fourth etc. If there are more than 4 apps in one folder, they could be categorized with more granularity.
    Another feature I'd like is sorting apps by how frequently they are opened such that most frequently opened apps show up on top instead of / along with most recently searched.

    It would also be really cool if we can set time windows for notifications per app. Like show notifications from office email app between 9am and 9pm. Or disable fb messenger notifications when in meetings (synced with calendar) etc.

    @Ruby G. At first I thought that you asked for things we liked.. and what would be a good addition. Anyways it's holiday season so why not have extra positivity.

    Best features currently available:
    1. Smoothness of the navigation
    2. Top or close to hardware that gives a great working phone that last for years. For example , the number of people still using OnePlus 3 /3T. Even after 1.5 years of the OnePlus 6, it's working great.
    Recommended feature:

    The ability to automatically display pinned notes to the top of the list (in the shelf)
    Currently, When a note is pinned, it stays burried. It would be great if the pinned notes automatically appear at the top of the list without additional input. Moreover, ensure to have the ability to pin multiple notes to the top.

    This past year has been my first year using OOS and I feel like it's good and rather than add more (bloat) improve what it has (community app, camera SW, etc) than add another feature that not all of us actually want. Otherwise make it so we can remove the unwanted piece. I'd rather have a streamlined OS that takes up little storage and is optimized than an OS clogged with "extra features" that may not be used and possibly draw attention away from focusing on the core OS and making it truly a Master Piece ;)

    Oh forgot #ExtraStuffingPlease :p

    •Separate volume control for Google Assistant

    I hate when I watch YouTube or listen to music at a specific volume and then the next day I go to use the assistant the volume is either too high or too low.

    •AMOLED Notification

    Utilize the AMOLED screen since we don't have a physical LED notification.

    Maybe light up the edges of the screen every now and then or do notification icons in GRAYSCALE to save battery.

    •OnePlus App Store

    It would give us the option to use a multitude of OnePlus specific apps without the annoyance of bloatware. [e]1f4aa[/e][e]1f4aa[/e][e]1f4aa[/e]

    •Routines App

    Create an app called "Routines". How it would work is you setup a schedule with "routines".


    7am the user will be woken up to the news/music playing in the background and/or the assistant reads out loud the weather and route details to work.

    9pm the assistant is reading an audio book and/or playing white noise to help the user go to sleep (ocean sound, rain noise, etc).

    wow! what a cool idea to have a chance to ask for user wanted features and to do it in a way that we get rewarded for it! double win!

    personally I would like to see Amoled black everything!
    so even the shelf and the app drawer and the pull down menu should be black!

    thanks for this opportunity!

    I would like to see built in parental controls, one Benoit of apple is that there is parental controls built into iOS that can remove internet access and access to the app store, which makes it a great phone for kids as well. Google has one as well in Android, but it just allows parents to have a separate app to control the kids phone and set bedtimes where the phone shuts off etc. but there is no simple way to just remove internet access and the app store so a parent can know that their child isn't going anywhere online that isn't in a app that want downloaded by them and can just give them the phone and leave it be.
