OnePlus Nord: How to Record Calls, Customise Features, and More | Best OnePlus Nord Tips and Tricks

published on August 3, 2020

The oneplus note is a great mid-range smartphone and after taking a look at some of your comments in our video review i decided that it's time to take a deeper dive into some of the cool things you can do with the nod now long-term one plus users should find

This very familiar however for first-time oneplus buyers whom the nod is specifically targeted at should hopefully find this video quite informative also if you're new to the channel don't forget to subscribe and

Also hit that bell icon so you're the first to know whenever we push out a new video i'm riding with gadget360 and it's time to take a look at some of the important tips and tricks for the one plus not

we've been getting this question a lot so let's address it first yes you can record an incoming or outgoing phone call on the oneplus note

You'll have to swipe to the second panel to access it once the call has started this call is now being recorded there's also an audible voice prompt which tells you and the person you're talking to that call recording

Has started or ended has now ended now you can play back the recording by tapping on the name of your contact to view the last recorded call or tap history to listen to the past recordings

Oxygenos has a neat little feature which lets you hide apps and files that you wish to keep private to hide an app open the app drawer and swipe right which should take you to a hidden space

Once it's set up simply tap the plus symbol to add the apps you wish to hide hidden space can only be accessed via your pin or fingerprint if you choose to enable it which i think you definitely should else

Why bother right you can also hide files such as photos videos pdfs or even word docs through the lock box feature in the file manager app when you need to access these hidden

Files simply open the file manager app and scroll down to the lock box option where your hidden files should be waiting for you one of the big advantages of an amoled display is the ability to light up only

The pixels that are needed and oneplus makes good use of it with its ambient display feature it lets you quickly glance at the time battery level notifications etc by simply picking up the phone

In the settings app head to the display submenu and ambient display here you can customize when it gets activated what sort of contextual information you wish to see etc the clock widget can also be customized

Through the customization sub-menu in the settings app oxygen os still doesn't use android 10's native dark mode option which allows you to activate it based on the time of day

However dark mode is still present but as a permanent theme in the customization submenu of the settings app you can switch the theme from the default one to nuance dark this also automatically enables dark

Mode in many apps like whatsapp slack gmail etc which is a little annoying especially if you don't want a dark theme in those apps now keep in mind that when you change

The theme it'll also override all the other customizations you might have done for the system icons fonts etc which means you need to go back and redo these all over again oneplus if you're listening can we

Please stop the madness by default the power button is set to trigger an sos action if you press it three consecutive times while it is useful you can modify this action to say

Quickly open the camera app you'll first need to disable the sos function by going to security and then emergency rescue once that's done head back to the buttons and gestures menu in the

Settings app and now you should be able to turn this feature on the oneplus note takes decent low light photos but they're not great however if you have a steady surface to

Lean the phone against or better steal a tripod you can get insanely good nighttime shots with tripod mode in the settings of the camera app you simply need to enable tripod long exposure

Now in order for this to work you need to switch to nightscape shooting mode and set the timer for at least 3 seconds before shooting now the reason for using the timer is that even if the phone is on a tripod

And you press the shutter button a minor shake is enough for the phone to still assume you're using it handheld and it will simply take a normal nightscape shot but with the timer it gives the phone some buffer to stay

Absolutely still which is when the long exposure kicks in just take a look at the difference using regular nightscape and with tripod mode there's an easy way to share your last click photo from the camera app itself

If you long press the little circular preview of the last photo you took you get a little pop-up carousel of the most recently used apps so you can directly share the photo with the app of your choosing now it's smart

Enough to not present a game as an option but i wish i had more control over what apps show up here gamespace is a little utility that helps organize all your games in one place but it also takes care of any

Distractions when you're gaming such as silencing notifications or even temporarily disabling automatic brightness you can optionally enable fanatic mode which takes us a step further by restricting background app

Activity blocking all notifications and calls and it even disables a second sim if you have one to improve the internet connection of your data sim

If you sign up for a oneplus account you'll be able to use the free 5gb of cloud storage for backing up photos videos and notes from your oneplus nod you can view your files on any oneplus device with the same account or view it

On any computer through a browser oneplus also offers free 50gb of cloud storage for a year along with other benefits if you sign up for its red cable club

The file manager app in oxygenos has a neat little feature called file dash which can be used to send large files to any phone or wi-fi which is a lot quicker than using bluetooth think of this as a slightly

Clunkier version of apple's airdrop now if you're sending files to another oneplus phone then the process is simpler since the other party simply has to choose the receive button in the app

Connect to your phone and begin receiving files now you can send it to other devices too but the process is a bit more convoluted i think this list is a pretty good place to start if you just bought a brand new

Oneplus not we've covered lots more oxygen os features in our video comparing it to stock android so don't forget to check that out as well also if you know of any other feature

That might not be very obvious to a first time oneplus user don't forget to drop a comment below that's it for me and for everything tech log on gadget360com
