    Hello friends,

    What are your plans for the weekend during the summertime? In China, the sun is what stops us from outdoor activities. Hence what we usually do in the weekend is either staying at home for a whole weekend, or sleeping until noon, watching a movie with friends in a mall, and taking a walk in the park at night. Here, AC is what makes us survive in the daytime. Is it the same situation in your country?

    Well, if you're relaxing like me at the weekend, let’s take a look back at what happened this week.

    Camera Open Ears Forum & upcoming AMA
    Last weekend, @Nigel Rijkhoek and the team invited 25 users from Europe to Amsterdam, to discuss the camera product and collecting feedback upon OxygenOS new prototypes. It was a productive event with quite a few commitment for 2020; you may check this recap to learn more details.
    Meanwhile, considering that most of our community was not able to join the offline event, we've invited @Jimmy Z., the camera product manager, to Community for an AMA next Monday. If you have camera-related questions, feel free to ask in this thread.

    Bonus from E-commerce
    Earlier this week, @David LiuZW announced the free shipping voucher on accessories for OnePlus 6/6T/7/7Pro phone users. To be honest, I was impressed when Pete made that commitment; it was the first time I witnessed first-hand user-feedback being directly implemented. And it happened so fast! A big shout-out to e-commerce team for making this happen in the long run.

    Besides, we've received requests upon updating the referral system. After sharing it with E-com team, we are told that there’ll be an update soon. There will be OnePlus 7 Pro and more items added into the referral program. Do you have enough referral points? Learn how to earn it here.

    Contests that you might be interested in
    • It’s the last week of EU's GoExplore campaign with the topic of Never Settle. We believe there’re many moments that you never settled, record it and share it for the chances to win the Bullets Wireless 2.
    • We’ve boomed up to 2.6K replies in Shot on OnePlus July contest. Hence we decided to upgrade the award amount to 10 for next month.
    • The Wallpaper contest is also popular, but don't forget that creativity comes first.
    • New Raffles available! - We have 3 Type-C Bullets and 3 Never Settle S’well Bottle to give away. Congrats to @toastytoast1234 for exchanging the Messenger Bag, this might be the last one we give away in community because we've ran out of stock.

    OxygenOS Updates
    This week, OxygenOS 9.0.7 has rolled out to OnePlus 5/5T users, bringing some new features, such as Screen Recorder, Quick reply in landscape, Fnatic mode, etc. Also, we’ve released an open beta for OnePlus 6/6T, with brand new UI and DC Diming in OnePlus Laboratory. We hope you are enjoying these new features.

    Last but not least, the weekend fun time will certainly make you laugh, make sure to check it out. And I'd really like to recommend you this video.

    Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

    Thanks for the well rounded up weekly, Crystal!
    It's bad that the weather is harsh on ya'll but I hope that the AC helps you cope :p

    Meanwhile, here in India, Bengaluru. The mercury has dipped, I sleep to rains and wake up to drizzles. Feels like dawn even as the clock ticks 12!
    This is one of the reasons Bengaluru is famous. @Trista W. was here recently, I hope she liked the weather too :)
    To sum it up, it's just perfect! Here's what it looks like :p
    Wow!! Finally. @meatandy grab it ;)
    So toastytoast is now officially, the last recipient of the Messenger bag :D

    Have a relaxing weekend, everyone! Hope you can warp charge your batteries for the upcoming week ;)

    It regularly gets above 100°F -110°F (37°C -43°C)here in Texas. Doesn't really stop people from going out to enjoy themselves. You get used to it. It would such without having a/c but we make do. Thanks for continuing to put these updates out and describing OnePlus's plans. I really appreciate that.

    [QUOTE = "G_plusone, post: 20591502, miembro: 1000584"] El Sol Nunca nos detuvo jugando al aire libre. : pagTenemos 30 s en Celsius, incluso alcanzamos los 40 s en verano.
    Pero hizo difícil para los juegos más descansos tragar agua e incluso verternos a nosotros mismos para enfriarnos.

    Yaaaaayyyy : pag

    Tengan un gran fin de semana a todos [/ CITA]

    I work at an Auto parts store in Mississippi. USA. So I work every single weekend. But it is okay. I get used to not having a weekend off but it would be nice to have time to spend with the family or working on my side projects.

    Nice update, excited to hear more about the referral points changes. I'd like to be able to use points to purchase a percentage of a phone as well. Say for instance if I have 3000 points, it should take roughly $300 off the price of the phone.

    you can see the difference here with the
    1.lack of texture
    i dont understand why oneplus has same issue its like a beta phone that gets fixed at the end of its 1 year term
    the same issue was present on my previous OP5(water paint)
    please kindly take it into consideration and fix the issues

    also i have few questions regarding the OP7 if it truly has an F1.7 as claimed as the other softwares such as adobe PS,Lightroom show it as F1.8 instead?


    also the F1.8 on asus is shown as F1.7 on oneplus gallery app? is the app on default to read 12mp as F1.7?
