    1500 days of OxygenOS: Tweet with #OxygenOS for a tree
    September 13, 2019 marked the 1500th day of OxygenOS, a clean and elegant OS that powers our smartphones. We named our operating system ‘OxygenOS’ because Oxygen is that element we can't do without and constantly need to survive. However, the Oxygen we breathe is under threat today and it is only befitting that we do whatever we can to contribute back. That's why we have decided to do something meaningful - partnering with WWF India. For every tweet with #OxygenOS, we will plant one tree! Visit the post to see how to be a part of it.

    Congrats on 300 weeks of updates! Its crazy that you guys have stuck by updating for so long. And i still remember the original post where you announced the weekly updates.
    Many thought it wouldn't last long. :)

    As for ugly tech designs:
    The band aid color of the s5 still weirds me out to this day. :confused:

    @LightningXIII 's caligrapy is something beautifull to look at, it takes time and tallent, but the results are always awesome and inspiring!

    As for ugly designs, I'll mention something I owned (even if for a little bit), and it was of a atrocious/strange design : The LG G4, I've had the G3 and it was awesome, probably the best of that year, then came the G4... From the front it was ok, the back... Well just have a look at it:
    Needless to say, I've returned it, since I don't go crocodile hunting, it also smelled funny....

    The Samsung Galaxy S5 "Band-Aids", my 2nd choice of ugly stupid design, although a great phone all round, and in the white version (that I've had) less band-aidy ;)

    ;)) It was the back of the phone, not a case, probably moist, from hands, and the heating from the device, made it smelly....
