    Week 332.png

    Hi everyone,

    Another week of hustle and bustle has reached its end. HQ Community team is now returning to a less hectic pace after the OnePlus 8 Series launch, but everything is worthwhile when we are surrounded by such a vibrant community.

    As COVID-19 is still spreading around the globe, I would suggest everyone to stay at home during weekends and stick to social distancing. How about some foodporn to decompress from these trying times? Join us for a new Shot on OnePlus week! You can also reflect on the positive impact Internet is having throughout this period, in this Writers' Club thread.

    Let's get down to the nitty-gritty:wink:
    • I always stumble upon hilarious wallpapers paired up with punch-hole cameras. In terms of the current front camera set-up of various trends in the market, our USBA group just released an article analyzing their respective pros and cons, in an in-depth and informative way. Check it here!​
    • A new round of raffles just begun, courtesy of Santa @Zach X.. Don't miss out on the opportunity to win a OnePlus 8 Series limited T-shirt and bottle!
    • We started highlighting some of the amazing reviews from The Lab. We're are blown away by the level of quality of this edition. I wonder if any of them will become a major tech influencer in the future. You can check all the reviews here. What's your favorite one?
    • Since its debut on March 5, IDEAS have already received over 5,000 brilliant ideas regarding improvement of OxygenOS and our product team has been tirelessly evaluating them. Check the third round of replies here and don't miss out on the last chance to submit your own idea before April 30.
    • andre.png Wonder how these amazing wallpapers are created? Don't miss out this interview with André Saraiva about making art for OnePlus.
    • OyxgenOS Open Beta program has reached its end for the OnePlus 6 and 6T as we prepare to support new devices. To ensure a smooth transition back to stable builds to keep your phone updated, you can find more details here. Also regarding software, we've made a statement regarding the issues faced by some OnePlus 7 series Open Beta users, that led to a halt in the Beta rollout. We currently have a team analyzing the situation to make sure Build 12 resumes as soon as possible.
    • A small teaser: We have some good news coming soon for those still using the OnePlus 5 and 5T. Be sure to visit the community in the next few days to know more about it. ;)
    • @Swejuggalo is sharing the love with the community by giving away his extra OnePlus 7 Pro dBrand grip case with black dragon skin. If it fits into your taste, please thread your comments here.
    • For the gamers out there, you might've noticed that Fortnite is now available on the Play Store. @Cheetosdust started the discussion about why it took so long and is asking for your opinions on the game here.
    These are pretty much the highlights for this week. If you are looking for some nice reading materials, you shouldn't miss this thorough comparison between OxyenOS and OneUI, or this week's Addition Magazine article. In alternative, you can join in on the fun and bring your favorite character to the Community in Writers' Club's second Hello Weekend! thread.

    Have a great weekend and stay safe.

    I'm confused tbh.. the nick fury eye looks (umm) nice try? but what device is it?
    it has an alert slider on the right side (makes sense) but the power button and the volume rockers on the left? something's fishy, cause the punch hole is on the right side 🙄🤔 the image is not flipped

    Hello @Trista W. and many thanks for sharing the update with the forums:)

    Somehow, weeks are flying by these days. Just want to add an appreciative sentence to thank you for linking the threads I started, pretty cool memories shared on the Internet one and the thread about Fortnite is a nice way to see how OnePlus devices are handling the game.

    That Final Fantasy article is really, really well written. I don't know who did it, but many congratulations to him/her.

    And @Dexter thread for this weekend is going really great, so many cool interactions so far, I'm loving it. We have Batman, Eminem, Dr. House is there too. A few Pikapika. Dexter seems to hate his sister more than ever these days. Oh, and Walter White is also there, for some reason he's rocking a cool, pink outfit these days. :rolleyes::D

    Hope your weekend is going great, my virtual and virtuosos friends. Stay safe and keep being awesome. :cool:

    Your pink outfit is just to match yourself with your partner Jesse Pinkman, right? :rolleyes:

    Wait, me? Hating my sister? I think you're thinking about someone else... :D
