by birtanpublished on September 22, 2020

If you only one plus three or three t here are some great tips and tricks to help you truly understand what this flagship is capable of the model I am using is the one plus 3t running the latest oxygen OS open beta for with Android 7.1.1 I highly recommend getting

The latest open beta version available for your model as it will help you unravel most of the hidden gems discussed in this video and you don't need root to manually update I'll leave a link down below if you want more

Information also if you're already familiar with oxygen OS then you'll probably arraign know some of these tips so don't expect some hidden features that no one's ever seen before because that's not going to happen this video is

Mostly for those who haven't had the time to dive deep within the interface and before you guys ask the skin I am currently using is from deeper and this dome design finish is very appealing as it makes the phone look unique and also

Provides a bit more grip when handling the device they also have plenty more skins for plenty more devices I'll drop a link down below if you want to check them out for yourself anyways let's jump right in with the

Tips and tricks starting it off with the buttons most of you know that you can switch to an on-screen navigation bar instead of using the capacitive keys but if you decide to go virtual you can still enable the fingerprint sensor to

Also act as the HOME key or long press to open up Google assistant if you're switching from a Samsung you can also swap the recent and back keys double click the power button to open the camera and if you would like to set

Different actions when long pressing or double tapping on the capacitive keys you can have the home button launch the search assistant and the recent key to switch between your last used app these are just some examples of how I use

These shortcuts you can customize it way more if you want as for the 1 plus launcher a really neat trick to add more space to the home screen and app drawer is if you go into the settings display display size and make sure it's set to

Default or even small to spread everything out even more and when you're navigating through apps more information is going to be shown on one screen you can also enable swipe down in the launcher settings to access your

Notification tray with a swipe down gesture choose a different icon pack and even rearrange or resize the widgets in the shop tray by long-pressing on a card a really cool feature though from one of the recent software updates is that you

Can now automatically set a new wallpaper from pictures taking on a oneplus device it's a really nice option to have for diversity but it would have been nice if they also implemented an option to automatically switch between

Custom images on a daily basis if want to customize the status bar go to the settings status bar and from there you can change the battery icon to a circle hide it or even show the percentage right next to it plus you can

Enable or disable icons that would appear on the status bar if it's starting to get a little too crowded when receiving a notification maybe you also want to control the importance level for example if I want my Gmail

Notifications to show up at the top of the notification list at all times always be expanded and allowed to banner over my homescreen when it comes in then I can set it to a level 5 if I want to screenshot notification to appear in my

Notification tray but also have no disturbance at all and become hidden from the status bar and lock screen then I can set it to a level 1 to enable this feature go into the quick settings panel tap and hold the gear icon for a couple

Seconds to enable 1 plus lavatory just basically system UI tuner go into the settings 1 plus laboratory and enable power notification controls to actually set the importance level for a notification slightly drag it to the

Left or right within the notification tray tap the gear icon and more settings tap the a to disable automatic selection and then choose the level of importance with the slider seems like a lot of work blades definitely worth it for that full

Control these next couple of tricks have to do with controlling the device when it's locked gesture controls are a great start you can double tap to wake open the camera toggle the flashlight and even control

Your music by drawing certain shapes on the screen when the phone is locked you probably also only want necessary apps running in the background to save some battery and doze does a great job of hibernating most apps but if you want to

Get aggressive then you can manually select the apps you want to restrict background activity on within the settings go to the battery battery optimization menu advanced optimization enable advanced optimization go back and

Select the apps you would like to restrict battery activity on now that you're controlling the music and saving some battery maybe you also want to customize the LED light to know what type of notifications you receive you

Can say custom color for when your battery is full charging low and when you get a notification from an app such as the text or you tweet it may not let you change the color on a per hour basis but it's better than nothing just go

Into the settings display LED notifications and there they are within display or plenty more awesome features you can mess around with such as the night mode to read strain on your eyes and night screen

Calibration to get more accurate colors or manually set the temperature an option and change the overall UI theme to light white and light blue accents or dark black and dark blue accents and proximity wait to turn on the display by

Waving your hand over the proximity sensor without stopping there when taking a screenshot you now have the option of extending it to include an entire page a conversation your feeds and so much more it's really easy to

Enable it just take a screenshot by holding down the volume down and power key at the same time or use a three finger swipe and tap on the dotted rectangle when the preview pops up from there it will automatically start

Scrolling down the page and once you tap on the screen that's when he will stitch all the screenshots together to get a giant vertical PNG file if you love the game then you should consider turning on gaming mode for your games within the

Settings advanced and gaming mode this will block any incoming notification and disable the capacitive keys so you are not disturbed while you own all the new for those of you who love photography you'll be happy to hear that you can

Chew raw images on the camera app this is perfect for those who want to tweak an image that has minimal processed data from the image sensor to turn this on you need to tap on the hamburger menu cog icon and then save raw image my last

Tips and tricks to step up your smartphone game on the 1 + 3 or 3 T are all found within the developer options to enable this go to the settings about phone tap on the build number 7 times go back and then you'll find developer

Options towards the bottom here you'll find plenty of events features that you should only mess around with if you know what you're doing I like to enable advanced reboot to have the option of rebooting directly into recovery and

Bootloader mode USB debugging to out the device communicate with the Android SDK found on my desktop for ADB and demo mode to make the status bar look nice when recording videos here you can also change the animation speed to make the

Phone seem faster as well well those are some of the best tips and tricks I found to be useful on the 1 + 3 + 3 T let me know in the comments if I missed any hidden trick that's not very well known drop a like if you enjoyed and make sure
