    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to One+ and so far I really like the phone.

    On every one of my Android phones I've had, I'm going back 10 years now, there has always been a separate volume slider for notifications. On this phone it's combined with a ringer and I was wondering if there was a way to separate them.

    TIA.

    I may not have been clear or I just don't understand your response. I don't have a way to separate the the volume for notifications and the ringtone. I'm using the volume up and down buttons not the slider.

    That's the way stock(ish) Android works. Separated volume for ring and notifications is only available in some brands like Samsung or LG. In brands like Pixel, OnePlus or Motorola this is only possible rooting the phone. Sorry.

    I've used Samsung Motorola and LG over the past 10 years and they all had separate controls for media, bluetooth, notifications, and ringer volumes. I'm very surprised that one plus, as awesome and innovative as they are, has overlooked this very simple feature. I hate having my notifications on at work but I still need to hear my phone ring. How is this overlooked? Thank you for your reply.

    I don't really like having my phone ring, but like to have notification tones. I just go into the ringtone section and change it to none. That silences ring, but not notification alerts.
