    Even when you’re 210 weeks in, every week at OnePlus feels like a milestone. The only way to keep up with the world of tech is to move faster yourself. With the year’s end now in sight, some of the biggest tech media are starting to hand out their awards, while our community has started to speculate as to what might be coming in 2018. There’s still plenty to come in 2017 however, let’s take a moment to reflect on some of the biggest stories of this week.

    OnePlus, At Your Service!
    Never Settle is about much more than building devices that live up to the expectations of our users. We’re also committed to ensuring their experience with OnePlus is smooth throughout. Any piece of tech is made up of thousands of fragile components, and even the world’s greatest quality control system can’t render a smartphone invincible. Our growing Customer Support team has you covered in case you encounter any problems. In our first-ever Customer Support AMA we sought to give you guys some insight into our process, while answering your questions regarding Customer Support. Thank you all for joining our latest AMA on the forums! If you didn’t get the chance to participate, be sure to check out the thread anyway (your question might already have been answered.)

    Face Unlock For 5-Year Olds
    When I was 5 years old, I was too busy trading Pokémon cards to concern myself with technology (apart from the old Windows 95 computer in my dad’s office). Tech played a somewhat ephemeral role in my life back then, but today’s 5-year olds are far more in-tune with tech than I was. So, we decided to make even the more complex parts of our tech accessible to kids. In our latest deep-dive on Medium we explain that Face Unlock isn’t a magic gnome trapped in the world’s tiniest prison locked inside your phone, but a series of processes that work together to identify your face and unlock your phone. Don’t miss it! (Appeals to people over 5 as well.)

    Reflecting on Sandstone
    Sandstone has been a part of OnePlus history since the very beginning. By being both practical, thanks to its grippy texture, and unassumingly beautiful, Sandstone has come to define OnePlus design. At HQ, we all have our favorite sandstone memories. The OnePlus Sandstone Soap remains a favorite around the office (If you’re not literally scrubbing your skin off your hands, you’re not doing it right). We can’t celebrate 4 years of OnePlus, without reflecting on this signature material. Have any fond memories of sandstone yourself? Join us in the thread now.

    Merry OnePlus
    Like a bunch of kids, we simply couldn’t wait to get the holidays started! So, we started the party early this week as we got the team together for a game of Secret Santa. Gifts were exchanged, reindeer were impersonated, games were played, chocolates were consumed, and much fun was had. But, we’re not done handing out gifts yet. Keep your eye on our software updates, for a tasty treat this way comes! What are you guys doing to celebrate this most merry of holidays?

    Thanks for reading this week’s update, friends. Whether you’re frolicking in the snow or languishing by the beach this weekend, we wish you all happy holidays and a merry ole time.
