OnePlus 7 Pro: Top OxygenOS features of the latest flagship phone
OnePlus 7 Pro comes with the latest OxygenOS based on Android Pie. Here are top features of OnePlus’ mobile software.
OxygenOS which powers OnePlus phones has continued to evolve with a focus on making the interface slicker and clutter-free. With pure Android becoming quite popular among modern phones, OxygenOS is among the better custom ROMs.
With OnePlus 7 series launch, OnePlus has added a bunch of new custom features in OxygenOS. Some of them have especially designed for Indian users. Let's take a look at the top software features of OnePlus 7 Pro's OxygenOS (version 9.5.3 based on Android Pie).
One of the top features of OnePlus 7 Pro is fnatic mode. Can be simply understood as 'gaming mode', fnatic mode makes sure uninterrupted smooth experience on the phone when playing games. The mode allows you to block all notifications and calls, except for low battery notification, alarm and timer. The mode also gives preview of missed calls in the call history.
With the fnatic mode on, you can enhance OnePlus 7 Pro's processing power to channelize all the core powers towards game play. OnePlus cautions users that the mode could lead to glitches in some apps. If you're using dual SIM, note that the fnatic mode prioritises signal strength from the main SIM card to ward off low latency game play. The secondary SIM in this mode gets disabled.
Zen Mode is OnePlus' own take on Google's Digital Wellbeing initiative. The feature automatically detects high screen time usage and alerts users to take a break from the phone. With this mode activate, users can only answer calls and take photos. The zen mode stays activated for roughly 20 minutes.
Screen Recorder and screenshot editor
One of the most awaited features, OnePlus 7 series finally brings the native Screen Recorder feature. As the name suggests, you can record your screen and even share it with your friends.
OnePlus has also added screenshot editor which allows you to edit screenshots. The editing tools are different than usual photo editors. For instance, you can blur certain section or doodle on the photo.
In a bid to help users get rid of spam calls and messages, OnePlus has added caller identification in the OxygenOS. The feature, similar to Truecaller, lets you identify spam calls and block them.
