OnePlus, one of the fastest-growing Chinese smartphone manufacturers does all its efforts to maintain its loyalty with its followers. The company’s aim is simple but yet crucial to implement that to be in constant touch with its users and work according to their feedback. The company continuously throws community review programs to know more about its products and how it could make them better.
The company puts its most real efforts into the OxygenOS, the customized version of Android to make it worth for its users. The clean, intuitive, and smooth UI has always attracted more and more buyers and that’s why the company wants it to make it even more useful for its loyal followers.
Recently, OnePlus selected a winner from a contest it conducted to know how further the OxygenOS can be made pleasanter. The name of the contest is the Product Manager Challenge (#PMChallenge) and with the contest, OnePlus promised to take note of the features suggested by the winner and implement them in the next version of OxygenOS.
The winner of the contest named Leandro Tijink proposed some radical changes that OnePlus may take into account and eventually bring it to its version of Android OS. He envisioned some changes for the upcoming OxygenOS 10 based on Android Q that he believes the company should come up with for a better user interface interaction.
Tijink recommended some enhancements and some ideas that can be put forward for the future versions of the OxygenOS interface. He proposed rounded and more minimal elements with a focus on consistency, readability, and customizability.
One of the elements that he suggested includes a new Setup menu with a cleaner interface for better communication. The Setup process designed also includes an idea for the Theme selection option to choose for a system-wide theme.
There are also some suggested changes in the Ambient display as well as Homescreen. Some changes for the Shelf with rounded cards have also been suggested. He also imagines a new stacked layout for apps in the Recents menu and a more Android Q-Esque notifications shade with a separation between the quick settings and the notifications. Furthermore, there’s also a new suggestion for an improved interface for OnePlus’s FileDash feature. There’s a minor addition to the camera UI as well.
It’s expected that the OxygenOS 10, which might be coming along with the OnePlus 7T could include some of the suggested features by the winner Tijink
