    Hi everyone!

    With @Ruby G. (hopefully not) lost somewhere in Japan and most people over at HQ still enjoying Chinese New Year's festivities, it's up to me to bring you this week's update!

    The Community rolls up its sleeves
    As a closing remark to last week's update, Ruby hinted at "something incredibly fun released on Monday". And like clockwork, the beginning of this week brought #PMChallenge. #PMChallenge is your chance to step into the shoes of a product manager and experience the process through which a new OxygenOS feature is developed, and all the questions and thinking that it's poured into it. If you haven't already, feel free to submit your own idea! You can also check and discuss the ideas from other users here.

    I shouldn't have any favorites, but how can you not love @GopalB.'s idea of making the phone scream while it falls? Even better is if he comes up with a way to make it fall in slow-motion. It would be even more dramatic! Here's his sketch:

    A new thread of the week
    Following the big trend of the week, @gaster chose one of the #PMChallenge entries as this week's Thread of the Week. As a result, @pasztorlaszlo is getting 100 raffle points. Congratulations! Who knows, maybe next week it'll be your thread being featured!

    Say hello to Fry!
    Today we welcome to the Community @Fry B. He's UK's CBO and one of the most well-loved employees in the London office. He made sure to share his thoughts about the last 18 months working for OnePlus and you can read all about it in this week's "Secret diary of a OnePlus employee" thread. Don't forget to say hi to him!

    There's also a few other posts from the other Regional forums that are worth mentioning:
    • @Daisy K. shared another weekend waster. I need to complain, though. I'm still playing Egg, Inc. two weeks after you mentioned it. Thanks a lot, Daisy!
    • Paradoxically, @Vito B. shared his #NoPhoneDay challenge last Saturday.
    • I also had the chance of sharing another entry for the "Tech in 2019" series in the Portuguese forums. This time, about 5G.
    Tech picks
    • Because there's something in human nature that attracts us to tragedy, here's Android Authority's list of Google's failed products, from best to worst.
    • Wired made an interesting piece on Ikea's plan to make the smart home work.
    • I felt the need to share this second article from Wired with you, well, because it shows the amazing technology that goes into building something from a block of metal... who am I kidding, I just wanted the cool GIFs inside with you!
    This marks the end of this week's update. A kind reminder before I finish, though: for the most distracted around here, Valentine's is just around the corner. And if your significant other says the day doesn't really matter, remember:

    So where is that 3/3t update for Pie?

    Or at least a security patch, a monthly update was due a week ago.

    As mentioned above, China pretty much said during these days due to the Lunar New Year festivities. As for that question,

    If you have any bugs, please submit them through the link below:

    As for dual 4G support, please bear in mind that Snapdragon 835 does not support such feature.

    Why not submit that idea to the #PMChallenge?
