Is there some way to get output from the depth sensor? Its supposed to be used for bokeh effect in portraits but it could be interesting for other things as well. I haven't managed to find any working apps for that.

hello any problem with notifications ? i am missing a lot, only appears when i unlock the phone. I try to disable battery smart optimization but nothing. :(

I have the sam problem, I have tried everything and I found one solution that works and for me it's only this solution.
Download wifi automatic and set the wifi to turn off after 1 minute the screen it's turned off and activate the wifi when you lock up the phone

When I press "power" and "Volume down" keys together I get a screenshot...
How do I disable that?

I have rooted by magisk patched boot image in fastboot.
However when I fastboot boot maurofrios TWRP image it says it booted but nord switches to and remains on fastboot logo screen. Then acts as thought this has been completed, awaiting next command. Have tried both renaming to TWRP and using original whole TWRP name but unable to enter TWRP.

Edit: there is currently no TWRP for n10 5g version of nord. Not the same hardware as n100.

Hi, I am on the hunt for a new phone to replace my Mi Mix 2S. With a similar price, which one would you choose? I have pros and cons for each one, so I'd like some advice:

OP Nord: + community, + software, -fast charge, -camera quality
Oppo X2 Neo: +Screen, +Capacity, +Zoom, -No community, -Single SIM, -Limited 5G
Oppo Reno4 5G: +Screen, +Zoom, - No community, -Only 128Gb

They are all around 400 € in Spain right now. I value camera very much.
Thank you!

Hi. what is the best custom ROM for battery life? I have been experiencing terrible battery life since the last oos update. Currently on version 11.1.1.2.
Previously I used to be able to get SOT of 3-3+hours.
Recently is not possible to even touch 3hours of sot.

Thank you very much

Hi. I have a soft-bricked Oneplus Nord that only boots to bootloader. I tried manually flashing a fastboot rom, but halfway through (or so) it gives an error that it can't flash critical paritions.

Help please.

Thanks

I am currently using the latest pixel experience ROM which is pretty good with battery life. Getting 1.5 days standby along with around 7-7.5 hours SOT when on wifi using 90 hz.

I use a custom ROM, LineageOS (LOS), so after a while the radio/modem/baseband becomes "outdated" because the custom ROM doesn't update it.
For my old OnePlus 3T, it was easy for me to extract these files and flash them without "breaking" the system or data partition. Packages from other developers were also available to update.
But for the Nord, as for other A/B devices, there don't seem to be any baseband/modem updates.
Does anyone know why? Or how to update without a complete reinstall?
I tried flashing OOS with LOS Recovery and Orange Fox Recovery and wanted to reinstall LOS right after that without rebooting, but no luck, no matter what I did or edited, no success, OOS is not flashable this way.
Currently the only way seems to me to use the unbrick tool, then update to the latest OOS and then reinstall LOS.
I am an expert myself and I will keep trying and testing but probably someone knows an answer.
Thanks in advance.

Hi XDA,

I've used the OnePlus Nord for nearly 3 weeks now and did a review of it for XDA: https://www.xda-developers.com/oneplus-nord-review/

If you have any questions about the device, ask them here and I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability.
Hi,
Many thanks for your proposal ;) I think i need help
Here is my goal : install nethunter on it
Here is my problem(s) :
- after many tries and hours (weeks) of googling it s impossible :rolleyes:
Here is my status :
- Oxygen OS 11.1.7.7 AC01BA (EU)
- Macbook Pro as laptop with drivers / adb and fastboot installed
- Device is unlock, bootloader is unlock
- TWRP is installed
- Magisk is installed
- I've installed Root Checker and it tells me that root access is properly installed on my phone
- unable to remove encryption (whatever the way)

Here is my questions :
- what is the best ROM, kernel, recovery to use ?
- Is it possible to find a ROM where encryption have been disabled ?
- Do you know how to remove the encrytption of the phone ? If yes, would you be kind enough to explain it to me with basic words step by step 😅

Thanks for your help

    Really confused between this and other options like realme x3 ... Only the developer support is swaying me towards nord as x3 wont have as good developer support..

    The Snapdragon 855+ in the Realme X3 SuperZoom has better CPU and GPU performance. The Realme X3 SuperZoom also offers better camera versatility with its telephoto lens and a better primary camera sensor. It also has a higher refresh rate display (albeit it's LCD and not OLED if that bothers you). However, you're right that long-term support of the Realme X3 SuperZoom is a lot iffier.

    Nord has dual-frequency GPS, i.e. support for L5/E5 signals and bands that could give meter precision (compared to about 5m without).
    How is the GPS quality?

    Sorry, with COVID-19 and me working from home, I can't really give you any detailed tests on this.

    So what do you have a European version or Indian and are you using it in the U.S. if so does mobile data work well, I have thought about importing one. Also I own the pixel 4 XL and I love and appreciate all your coverage on pixels and the Android developer previews and betas.

    European version - using it with my T-Mobile SIM card in the U.S. I don't use mobile data much but everything "works." I can't tell you how well it actually works in big downtown areas or in every city - check the supported bands to see how well it'll work in your area.

    One simple, two other questions

    How broad is this phone, could you use it with onehand? If i grasp my current phone my thumb can't reach past the middle of the screen. I don't enjoy that.

    How many googleapps are on this phone? I didn't like they use googlephone and messages instead of their own.
    Then news said googlefeed is on the phone if you swipe left, can you turn this feature off or is it baked in oxygenos?
    Is this phone for someone who does not use google a lot?

    Last question; can you disable paralell apps feature and use your own app for it ? (Like island for sandboxing apps.)
    ty so much for your time.

    Yes, I can use the phone in one hand. However, OOS really needs to bring back its one-handed mode that appeared in an earlier OOS beta for the 7 series...that would help with reaching buttons on the top.

    In addition to all the Google apps present on all GMS-certified phones, there's also the Google Phone app and Google Messages as the default dialer and messaging app.

    Google Feed can be turned off in OnePlus Launcher settings. The Shelf is thankfully still accessible with a swipe down gesture (it's no longer available on the minus one screen to the left where Google Feed is, though).

    Well, you don't have to use Google apps if you don't want to. You can change the default dialer and messaging apps and pretty much everything else.

    For Parallel apps: You don't have to use it, so yes, you can use Island or Shelter or whatever other work profile/sandboxing app you want.

    Can you check if display tint issue is present like in OnePlus 8 series?

    Nope, no green or purple tinting issues at low brightnesses and with black/gray colors showing on screen. My unit seems normal.

    Please upload the all screen shot of camera 2 api probe compatibility test so that I can know the video frame rates etc..
    And also please do the free filmic pro evaluater test (it is free in Google play) and share the screenshot.

    Filmic Pro Evaluator and Camera2 API Probe results: https://imgur.com/a/wzAfUrB

    Do you have screen tinting issues like in this screenshot ?: (at low brightness)
    1377102-f2926c2a82e330879f83baf925b63a7d.jpg

    As mentioned above, no screen tinting issues. I've read the Reddit and OnePlus forum posts and do not see any green or purple tinting at low brightnesses.

    Speaking of that, I'm confused between k20 pro and Nord.
    Considering, K20 pro is set to get official Lineage soon, development is good and at the same time every piece of hardware on it is better or at least on par while costing less about 6k in the upcoming sale.
    What would you prefer personally for a person who uses a device for about 5 years ? For now, nord doesn't seem promising in terms of dev support as there isn't any dev seeding program from oneplus for this device and we already saw what happened with almost similarly priced 7/7T without that program. I guess barely any recognized developer would get the nord out of his pocket for that price unless I'm wrong. What's your suggestion and take on it ?

    OnePlus does have a dev seeding program they just don't publicize it. The Redmi K20 Pro is a great phone and I can't recommend against it. It already has proven it will have a thriving developer community. However, its official support won't last as long as the new Nord, so make of that what you will.

    Is OnePlus Nord supporting full Camera2API ?

    This should have all you're looking for: https://pastebin.com/raw/8fQeL7YM

    Is there a possibility to use call recorder on the OnePlus Nord? I have been looking for days now and could not find it. I know the nord has the google dialer, is there a possibility to use the OnePlus dialer with joneplus app?

    Google Phone app does support call recording but not in all regions and not enabled on all device models. I live in the U.S. where it's not enabled, but I can't tell you about Europe or India.
