    "Developing OxygenOS has been an incredibly fun and challenging experience for all of us. In this environment where everyone is fighting to standout with custom ROMs, we think it's important to go back to basics. We place things like performance and battery life over gimmicks and bloated features. We want to be careful that we aren't adding features simply for the sake of differentiation. We've implemented some important features thus far, but they are subtle and meaningful. That's our philosophy behind OxygenOS: keep it light and essential," wrote Carl of OnePlus in a blog post.
