    Because it would be added bloatware which the vast majority of users don't want or need. If you want a qr reader then you can download one from the play store.

    Google lens should be able to read QR codes and is already in the canerc of the 6. 5 and 3 series will have it in a future update. Trough Google assistant you also can use it already

    I wouldn't call a QR reader bloatware to be fair. Some things should be provided by the OEM - I think QR reader has a good case to be one of those.

    Does stock Android have qr reader? I have an app (free) that can read qr and woks perfectly fine... So why do you need to add it to the camera app?

    I just feel like it should be provided by the OEM. Most people are not very good at finding apps with unnecessary permissions, etc. I think it's nice to have functional QR abilities straight out the box.

    Stock Android lacks a hell of a lot, I wouldn't use that a Gold Standard.

    Yep, I agree with that.

    It's either:
    - the OEM includes the functionality, but results in bloatware for many people
    - people download it from the Play Store, but most apps are full of ads.

    I prefer the second option, because if you really want something, pay a dollar for it.

    So, according to you, why don't we add also AI, filters and a bunch of other Pointless things, so every time you open the camera you have to wait 10 seconds to load....
    And don't stop there ... Add a compass, a level, a unit converter, music app, video editing, etc...

    It's a separate app with Huawei at least. And yes -Compass, unit converter, music and video editing should also be there imo.

    Edit - Not Video Editing, that's taking it a bit too far.

    No it doesn't. There is a playstore for a reason....

    I don't think that it will be a bloatware, for example, I had a Huawei Mate 9 device before I buy my OnePlus 6, it had the QR feature integrated on the lock screen and in the camera app, what I mean is that no need for that to be a separate app

    As long as you can uninstall/disable the apps then having the apps built-in is a better solution.

    The phone has full functionality out of the box. Also the people that don't think about uninstalling/disabling apps are the users at risk of installing data-mining crap (on the Playstore no less).

    Protect your user and offer full functionality is my new made up on the spot motto.

    Why do you buy a device with near stock Android os and ask for unnecessary bloatware ?
    Research before buying and problem solved....

    Indeed, research is key. Still something OnePlus can (and will eventually) start adding more functionality.

    Surely One-Handed mode must be coming soon for the small handed Indian folk.

    I agree that it should be in the camera app. It's not extra bloat if its done correctly. It's invisible in iOS and just works. The bloat is me needing to have a separate app to do it. If done correctly, this could be us.
