    I'd just like to say, I own a one plus 6 and a 6t. These are the 1st One Plus devices I have ever owned. So far I have enjoyed the phones, there are some issues that never got worked out but I got tired of dealing with support about it so I've just lived with them. Then comes the last update. They installed some insidious app called Zen Mode. I didn't ask for it and I can't get rid of it. At random times a message pops up telling me to put down my phone and enjoy life? These messages occurred when I was sleeping or at times when my phone was not even in use! I never look at my phone for 2 hours straight. My screen time for yesterday wasn't even 2 hours all day! Actually the message is up right now telling me I'm using my phone continually and I just picked it up this morning to type this message. I DON'T WANT ZEN MODE PLEASE REMOVE IT! If this is the path one plus is going this will be my 1st and last one plus device. Please remove Zen Mode or give us the option to turn off these ridiculous messages, I shouldn't have to look for work around's to make my phone work like I want it too.

    How about you disable it ? Since I got the update, I never had the message you're talking about

    Then I'm glad I wasn't interested in this in the first place. I mean, the whole concept of wanting an app to tell you to put the phone down was already ridiculous

    When OnePlus 8 is launched, I will inform myself if it has Zen mode pre-installed, then I will make the purchase decision.

    Then you might as well not buy any One Plus device anymore because I'm quite sure that Zen mode will be available on the future devices

    Zen mode can be disabled by swiping right on the desktop to go to the launcher, selecting the settings icon in the top right corner, go to More and use the slider to disable it. Hope this works, thanks!

    How do I delete Zen Mode?
    Not stop notifications.
    How do I delete Zen Mode?
    Not make it a longer time period.
    How do I delete Zen Mode?
    It uses up battery.
    It uses up data.
    It uses up space.
    It SENDS 10 MG OF DATA OUT EVERYDAY TO SOMEWHERE.
    It go against all the reasons I bought a Plus1. I wanted a phone with no bloatware.
    This is a work phone.
    I use it all day.
    I'm not a teenager with no self control.
    I will have to throw this phone away if I can't opt out .
    I have a 6T
    Please correct this nonsense.

    Right.

    Dunno if it an update or owt, but the Zen mode hit me again today.
    Out of curiosity I went through the screens to see whit hippy shite they on about.
    Did the 3 screens of propaganda, clicked get started, which took me to the fourth.
    Hallelujah, the menu from there allows you to turn it ******* 'off'.

    Might have been like this all the time, but go through it, hit the 3 dot menu and 'off' is available.

    I do not understand why this is not optional. I have been getting notices from it while I have been searching for where it is and how to turn it off.
    This is useless to me
