Top 21 Tips And Tricks For OnePlus 7 Pro Users
OnePlus has always gone out of its way in surprising its fan base with newer, bigger and grander features. In 2019, OnePlus unraveled another jolt of excitement, when it announced the launch of two phones, instead of one: OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 – with OnePlus 7 Pro being its biggest launch so far. According to the reviews so far, OnePlus 7 Pro is an ultra-premium phone with all the features that will see OnePlus joining the bandwagon of ultra-premium brands, such as Apple and Samsung.
Aiming to court users outside its loyal fanbase, OnePlus packed its latest phone OnePlus 7 Pro with every trendy feature we have witnessed in the previous year and more. Now, this would be a top-of-the-line phone that is much cheaper than its Apple and Samsung counterparts. Besides that, a 5G version of OnePlus 7 Pro is available in certain locations.
This budget-friendly phone from OnePlus offers a wide range of features, starting from a pop-up camera on the notchless display to the latest Zen Mode. What is it with the Zen Mode and how would you use the camera? Let us help you with that.
Here, we will take you through some of the Oneplus 7 Pro tips and tricks that will come in handy as new users:
1. Where Do I Find The Front-Facing Camera?
You might have already noticed that your OnePlus 7 Pro does not have a front-facing camera in the spot it is generally supposed to be. In the traditional models, the camera would be in a bezel above the screen. But in the latest models, manufacturers have been replacing that with notches. Interestingly, you would notice neither of them in OnePlus 7 Pro.
You will find the front-facing camera sliding out of the phone. Whenever you want to activate this camera, it pops up – regardless of whether you are activating the Camera app or launching Snapchat or any other App.
2. What Happens If I Accidentally Drop The Phone, While The camera Is Still On?
It would be ideal to not have this feature tested though you don’t have to worry about this one in a real-time scenario. In case you happen to accidentally drop your OnePlus 7 Pro, while the front camera is on, the phone will detect it is falling and pull back the camera before it touches the ground. There are OnePlus repair centers to solve any other issues related to this phone.
3. Why Does My Phone Have The Zen Mode?
The Zen Mode on the OnePlus 7 Pro helps you take a break of 20 minutes, every time your usage reaches a threshold duration, which can be adjusted as per expectations. This allows you to break free away from a continuous and virtually inescapable flow of notifications, and clear your head. While the Zen Mode interrupts all notifications, you can still make and receive calls. Be careful before testing this feature as it will keep you locked out of your phone for 20 minutes.
Thinking about restarting? We won’t recommend that – because it will not have any impact on the Zen Mode.
4. How Do I Add The Zen Mode?
In the quick settings panel, when you tap on the pencil icon, you would be able to drag Zen Mode to the Panel. Now, tap the icon and enter Zen Mode. Once you have confirmed that you want to enter Zen Mode, a countdown timer will appear on your device’s screen.
5. Does My OnePlus 7 Pro Have A Recording Feature?

Find a red-colored button, which is the recording button, and start recording. Click on the gear icon, if you want to change settings and click ‘X’ to exit the screen recorder.
6. How Do I Adjust The Alert Slider?
Just above the power button is your alert slider and it offers three different positions. The upper one will activate the silent mode, and if you want to enable the ring mode, it would be all the way down. If you want to activate the vibrate mode, go with the middle one.
On the basis of the alert slider’s position, you get to customize your OnePlus 7 Pro’s sound profile. Tap on Settings > Buttons & gestures > ‘Alert slider’.
