    Hello friends,

    Welcome to 2019! I hope the year has been treating you well so far. I have been back in the office for one day ha, after a nice holiday break with the family. As a result, January feels splendid and refreshing, the beginning of what is sure to be an eventful and exciting year for our community.

    TL;DR of how our year ended and started:
    So…new year, new you. *grins as groans erupt from the crowd*
    *someone throws a tomato* *it misses*

    All jokes aside, I’m sure many of us are taking inventory of our lives and deciding what we want to let go or keep doing this year. One thing that I hope everyone continues is taking the time to savor the small details of life. I have spotted some fine examples of such appreciation from @NeVeR_SeTTLe’s wonderful January Shot on OnePlus thread. I always enjoy the travel photos, but this one from @Praviners really made me want to hop on a plane again:

    Hope you all enjoyed this rather chill weekly update. Keep an eye out for something fun on Monday ;)

    Creative survey of the week
    OnePlus life: reading about the latest smartphone developments, posting sarcastic memes and well-timed bitmojis, having an intense fascination with bees and desserts, and most importantly of all, answering surveys.

    As a nod to this last element, I will subject a different team member each week to my off-kilter survey questions. This week, we start with our resident community consultant @dsmonteiro, who answered:

    1. Which meme best describes your mood this past week?
    [​IMG]
    2. Which meme best describes how the economy in your country is right now?
    [​IMG]
    3. Which meme best describes your reaction if you woke up tomorrow and found out your wife was pregnant with quintuplets?
    [​IMG]

    I'd love to see your responses as well :D

    Tech picks of the week
    Start the year off with some mental nutrition:
    • Autonomous delivery robots, bakeries in a box – the Consumer Electronics Show is coming to Las Vegas next week and the predictions are pretty exciting so far.
    • Everyone who watches the stock market will know what has been going on with Apple recently. Something like this happened back in 2002, you know.
    • And we see that Bitcoin is not immune to the phenomenons of life and big money. The Verge did a great write-up on how it started and fell as an emblem of financial counterculture.
    That’s all from me for now. Have a good one everyone!

    I actually keep teasing her that whenever we decide to have kids we'll get twins so that would certainly be karma playing a joke on me.

    Why no news regarding Android Pie for OnePlus 3/3T, no information makes users to doubt about it. Please respond to us also!!!!!

    There was no news about Pie until it was released for the 5 and 5T, same thing happened with the 6 and 6T. OnePlus does not provide ETAs. It will release the update when ready. Software development does take its time.
