    It’s been 3-4 days that I got Pie with HydrogenOS 9.0.3 (editre: wrong actually it’s oxygenOS 9.0.3) in my OnePlus 5 living in Greece

      HydrogenOS ≠ OxygenOS

      HydrogenOS comes with less customization and without Google Services, which means no PlayStore, it’s mainly used in China. The Update you’ve recieved a few days ago is actually OxygenOS 😉
