OnePlus has put in some great efforts over the years to curate a feature-loaded user interface for its devices.

OxygenOS 11 has undoubtedly impressed a good number of people and it wouldn’t be wrong to say it is the OxygenOS that lures more unique people into buying OnePlus machines than the hardware.

Well, the company has so far lived up to the expectations and continues to improve the overall usability of the skin.


There came more advanced ambient display features for the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, and 8T last year that added the Canvas AOD.

This is a brilliant idea to have the display customized according to your likes. And it is since then that the craze of customizable AOD has been ignited.

Even though the feature is dope, it still lacks ample brightness, making it a little difficult to see under bright daylight and too bright in the dark.

The AOD is stuck at a single brightness level which doesn’t suit the adaptive conditions.

Some users who noticed the lack of brightness slider on the AOD interface went straight to the OnePlus social media channels to express their views.

From what it appears, users seek an update that would add a brightness slider specifically for the Always-On Display.

The AOD feature isn’t just restricted to the OnePlus 8T now so this issue clearly extends to other OnePlus devices as well.

OnePlus Nord and OnePlus 7 users along with the OnePlus 8 series users have put forward their requests so far.

A OnePlus mod in response to these reports on AOD brightness assured users that a decisive step will be taken to help the users.

We’ll definitely work on the issue reported and we’ll do our best to help you.

OnePlus enjoys a great reputation when it comes to OxygenOS and adding a brightness slider shouldn’t be a tough task for the devs.
