iPhone X-style navigation on the OnePlus 5T: Is it all it’s cracked up to be?

by birtanpublished on September 2, 2020

In one Plus's latest oxygen OS open beta 3 for the 1 + 5 t new navigation gestures have been added as an option which functions similarly to the gestures on the iPhone 10 hi everyone jerome ortega here with android police and today we'll be taking

A look at these gestures and see how well they work with the 1 + 5 t once you've downloaded and install the open beta 3 release to your 5 t all you'll have to do is drop into settings select buttons and hide the navigation bar

That'll now give you a full screen experience while enabling these gestures if you're in an app and you need to get back to the home screen simply swipe up from the bottom center of the screen 1 + adds a little animation in there as well

That gives it a nice touch to go back for example in Chrome after clicking a link swipe up again from the bottom of the screen but instead of swiping from the center up swipe a tad to the bottom left or bottom right to go back a page I

Like that they give you the option for both left and right here and the switch app swipe up from anywhere on the bottom of the screen and pause from there you'll get a list of open apps where you can switch from one to the next

While these gestures offer you a full screen experience and is certainly a welcome addition as an option you lose functionality in the overall Android experience you can no longer quickly switch from app to app by double tapping

The recents button you also lose the ability to multitask and split screen apps without a navbar there is no gesture to hold down the home button to activate Google assistant and if you're someone like me who uses a screen

Pinning option you can forget about it because once you pin something you're now Sol with no navbar to unpin but let's remember this is an open beta release for the 5 T and it's totally an option that gives you a chance to use

Navigational gestures to try on Android and honestly swiping from the bottom up to get to your home screen and even swiping up to go back a page feels really natural to me it's quick and efficient and is now something I look

Forward to in future gesture updates and one pluses line up I'm hoping oneplus finds a way to add on to this by adding gestures to activate Google's then obviously a pixel – or a pixel – Excel can squeeze but unfortunately our

Five T's cannot and I'd love to see a quicker solution to switch from app to app away to split screen apps and even a way to unpin a pin screen just like one plus adding face unlock to the 5 and the 5 T while still giving us the option to

Use a fingerprint reader options are good can't hate on that
