Lift to wake

The OnePlus smartphone uses various sensors to detect when the device is raised or straightened and can automatically activate the screen to facilitate a theoretical face unlock.

Even if you only want to look at the clock or check incoming notifications, the straighten function is useful.

Note: This function does not unlock the device, so direct access is not possible if a password, pattern or PIN is selected as the unlock method.

Double tap to wake

In addition to the function for activating the lock or inactivity screen once, we can also activate the function for activating or waking the device by double-tapping.

In this case, the OnePlus smartphone does not remain in the lock screen, but instead immediately redirects us to the start screen, if no screen lock is set up.

Note: If screen lock is enabled, the corresponding unlock method (Pattern/PIN/Password) will also be requested.
Without authentication, the device will remain locked.

Three-finger screenshot

The OnePlus smartphone takes a screenshot by briefly pressing the Volume down and On/Off buttons simultaneously.

However, if we want another way to take a screenshot, we can enable the three-finger screenshot feature.

The Three-Finger screenshot gesture involves dragging three fingers from the top of the screen down to simply take a screenshot of the current screen content.
