They are not options that make the device work much faster or that include possibilities that by default are not part of the game. What is achieved with them is to make the most of what the OnePlus 3 offers and its user interface Oxygen OS. In this way, the device is not put at risk and nothing particularly complex has to be done.
Tricks for the OnePlus 3
Below we detail the tricks we have chosen, which are the first of a succession of them, and they are quite useful. In addition, we indicate how to proceed to use them if necessary:
Use gestures on the lock screen
This is an excellent possibility that is included in the OnePlus 3, and that makes its use much easier and intuitive. In addition, it favors that less time is spent performing an action on the lock screen at times when it is needed. To set this, go to Settings and then select Gestures. Now you can select each of them separately or using the slider to activate them all.
Activate the ambient display
The inclusion of this, of a use similar to Samsung’s Always-On, is an addition that is disabled by default, and the truth is that the reason is not understood. To activate it use the section screen Settings. Activate the Ambient screen and, in addition, we recommend that you do the same with Proximity sensor, so you can see this when you bring your hand to the aforementioned sensor that is in the upper part of the front.
Show battery percentage
Essential for some, inconsequential for others. The fact is that if you want to see in the OnePlus 3 what you have left of battery in this place, what you should do is access Battery Settings and, on the screen that appears, click on Battery icon. Now, just select Show battery percentage. As simple as that.
Set the LED
Whatever they say, this way of reporting a message that has been given to us or a pending email, is most useful because of how visual it is. To access its settings on the OnePlus 3, simply go to Personalization Settings and tap on LED Notifications. Here you can make the changes you think are appropriate.
Activate dark mode
If black is your color and you like the display of it, you should know that its use is positive in the OnePlus 3, since it integrates a screen type AMOLED it does not consume when displaying this color on the panel. What you have to do to activate this possibility is to use Customization of the Settings (again) and select the Dark display mode. The change is automatic and you can return to the target at the time you consider appropriate.
