So I was investigating a little about the matter, I noticed that
A) albeit not visible, it was in the settings app's layouts as gesture_navigation_bar_deprecated
in op_navigation_bar_gestures_settings.xml
B) it had settings(op_gesture_button_side_enabled and others) I could manipulate through adb

What I have found out:
If you run
adb shell settings put system op_gesture_button_side_enabled 0
the back gesture gets put back to the bottom edge. However it isn't all good, as the assistant gesture stays in the corner, and the home/appswitcher gesture gets triggered a lot too, when using the back gesture.
I hope someone has an idea how to improve on this, as in its current form it is highly useless, and I wouldn't recommend it.

What's the benefit to the OnePlus gestures?

The back gestures is from bottom edge either side, so it doesn't conflict with almost every app as Google's implementation does

Interesting but it could be code that has not been cleaned up, it may disappear in a future release.

If you want old OnePlus gestures, you can use : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=com.xda.nobar
With option "Split the pill in 3" and "Hide navbar", you can have (and customize) the same old OnePlus gestures.

You do know that all other op devices with a10 have the old gestures too?

Ohhhhhh, in that case IDK why they took that away cause Google's gestures definitely gets in the way. It takes some getting used to.

I wouldn't mind Google's if it was just on lower half of the screen or even just on the right side. I wonder if we can modify this.
