For Chinese tag, not even free.

TRUE. Stock android still tops it for me too, i hope OnePlus wakes up and gets back to its near stock experience soon. On a side note Samsung has done so much in its software department too.

I agree OxygenOS is getting lousy but still one of the best but not better than clean android
