Five things that you should do first on your new OnePlus 3T
OnePlus has launched new flagship device OnePlus 3T worldwide and is available for the gram in many countries. The device is supported with power packed specification and performance.

If you are in plan to buy the device or bought one, today in this article we are going to talk about the five things that you should first once you have your hand on the device.

Switch Off your device

Above the OnePlus 3T's volume buttons, you'll find a three-way switch. This is the alert slider, and it'll be your best friend on stressful days when you just want to escape work emails and the bants from your multiple WhatsApp groups.

Sliding it all the way up is a quick and easy way to put the OnePlus 3T in silent mode while leaving it in the halfway position allows only priority notifications to come through. You can tweak the priority notifications settings by going to Settings > Alert slider > Priority settings. From here, you can allow exceptions for important contacts, alarms and more, essentially making you the bouncer of your own smartphone.

When you're ready to open yourself up to the world again, just slide it down, and it's business as usual.

Use the figure print scanner

The OnePlus 3T has a delightfully nippy front-facing fingerprint scanner, letting you instantly access the handset without faffing around with a pin code.

As with all fingerprint-scanning smartphones, it's well worth registering, at the very least, both of your thumbs, so that you can use both hands to unlock the device.

We also tend to register our index fingers as well, making it easier to unlock our phones when they're resting face up on a table, but thatJ's entirely up to you.

Customise your power showing icon

The OnePlus 3T handily lets you customize how your battery charge level is displayed. We prefer swapping the traditional battery level indicator to accurate percentages ourselves, but you can mix things up with a circular power level indicator too if you like.

Or, if you want to live dangerously, you can hide the battery level altogether, it will absolutely madman you.

Manually set your camera setting

The OnePlus 3T's 16MP OIS-enabled camera serves up fantastic snaps straight out of the box, but you can squeeze a little more out of it if you take the time to manually set up your shots.
Like its flagship rivals, the OnePlus 3T has a manual shooting mode, which lets you tinker with ISO levels, focus, white balance and shutter speed, giving you more control over your shots than the standard auto mode.

It's not ideal for quick spur of the moment shots of course, but if you're trying to frame the adorable face of a cute kitten, it's sometimes worth taking a little extra time to nail that perfect shot (before it wakes up and adorably scratches your face).

Do Magic with your device

The OnePlus 3T's greatest party trick is its gesture controls, which are enabled when the screen is off. Swiping a 'V' shape on the blank screen will, for example, toggle the rear LED on and off, providing an instant torch without having to unlock the handset.

Drawing an 'O' will fire open the camera while swiping two fingers down in an 'II' shape will play/pause music. Finally, '<' and '>' shapes let you skip forward or go back a music track, and you have the handy option of double-tapping the screen to turn it on too.

Go to Settings > Gestures to toggle the various options on and off, and you'll be ready to shame your mates Galaxy S7 in no time.
