    Dear all,

    How time flies! In my previous Weekly Update, I said that it was my first month at OnePlus. Now, the second one has already passed. I really appreciate the enriching time in OnePlus so far. During this month, I had many meaningful activities with you, especially the Creative Challenge series, and, I must say, you really impressed us a lot. @Pete and our Chief Designer @Hope L. also joined this activity, Hope L even leaked some "secrets".:tearsofjoy: (Hoping Pete and PR team are not on the way LOL)

    As many of you already have your Nord and Buds on your hand, I hope they will fully meet your expectations, and help you enjoy your day-to-day even more. We would love to hear from you so feel free to share your experiences, suggestions, or even a deep dive on them. If you are a OnePlus Buds user or want to have a Buds of your own, don't miss this Buds open review, where you can win a Nord brave bottle or a OnePlus Buds with your talent and skils.

    Shot on OnePlus July passed, and we have a new one in August. I can't stress this enough, you guys are incredible! We saw so many exceptional photos, and some of them even shot on previous OnePlus flagships. To express summer vibe, you not only shared splendid scenery, but also your colorful, energetic summer life. Good job!

    Such a wonderful Weekly Update @Fleming F. I hope your first 2 months at OnePlus were enjoyable, and hope you have a great experience ahead.

    It's always interesting to see some prototypes that never made it to the final stage. I hope:p, (@Hope L. ) share more glimpses of such prototypes.

    Those are some really beautiful flowers, Happy Birthday @Amanda W. Hope you enjoy your day to the fullest.:D

    It's about time @Zach X. came back from the Mysterious Island.:rolleyes:

    Thanks for the weekly update @Fleming F. 🤗
    Happy Birthday @Amanda W. 😊🤗 Enjoy your day!!
    Header image looks cute😍 You guys keep the flowers, I like the cake 😉🤤

    As for the open review is concerned, mine is coming out soon. But to be honest I'm not really impressed by the 4 gestures that are there for OnePlus devices, I still have to use my phone for volume up and down and there shouldn't be an option to choose this or that, instead of options, introducing more gestures would be a bliss. If you decide to give me Nord bottle, I would rather prefer having more gesture control on my buds than a bottle. 😊
    Mentioned all the drawbacks in the review thread too.

    They could probably make new gestures like swipe up/down/left/right on the buds to control volume and track selection. Then tap to pause, long press to stop, or double tap to pause if single tap could result in accidental pausing.

    Yes exactly, I have prepared a small list of gestures and their features too, let's see if they bring it in the next buds update.

    Thanks @Fleming F. for the update, was not able to find the same though.
    The app really needs restructuring.

    Belated Happy Birthday @Amanda W. [e]1f382[/e]🎊[e]1f389[/e] Hope you had a great time [e]1f60a[/e]

    It was a great week for the creative people in the community. The result was unexpected though.
    I really liked the design - the white one by @Hope L. Other designs misses that magical touch.

    Raffles ! Why there is always a wastage of Raffle points [e]1f61e[/e].
    It should be brought back who didn't get it.

    Have a lovely weekend and a wonderful next week.

    Hi @Fleming F.

    Thank you for you weekly update. It's always good to know what is gong around next week with OP.

    I owned Earbuds, as says my fellows it lack control with. Let's say simple, double, triple taps would raised the ability to control features from earbuds and listening music. Wrote something on it.

    @Amanda W. happy birthday with 2 days late

    Happy 2 months @Fleming F. ! Wow that does fly by.

    Ah @Hope L. And her cheeky insights into the world of making OnePlus Products. Fascinating and interesting how some of the members designed something similar to the prototypes! (In sync with OnePlus). Also, surprise notifications from @Pete, @Amanda W. and , if very lucky approval from @Hope L. on everyone's designs was very nice! ☺️ (Though, result was a tad unexpected but hey ho)

    Better start thinking of a AMA for HQ! I'm sure there's plenty of insights to tell.

    Happy belated birthday @Amanda W. ! What beautiful flowers and those cakes look delicious (is that three types? 🤤) . We all stan the space X dragon.

    I'll be interesting to see what @Zach X has gotten up to!

    To a supercharged Oxygen 11 week: Keep safe, have a wonderful week ahead and of course, Never Settle.
