Now you will be able to see the importance section from which you can toggle the different levels of importance for that app.
7. Activate Gesture
There will be many situations where we want to share or transfer files to other phones. Normally if we do not have third party apps, we will just use WiFi Direct feature which is available on all smartphones.Sadly, this doesn’t offer much transfer speed.
However, in One Plus 5, in addition to the WiFi direct, there is a feature called FileDash inside the File Manager.
To use this open File Manager, then tap on the FileDash icon (next to the search icon). then you can select whether you want to send or receive a file.
When you send a file your device’s hotspot is turned on to which the receiving device should be connected. If the receiver is using a One Plus device, he can open FileDash and tap on receive.
If the receiver is using some other device, they can receive the file by opening any browser and going to “one.plus” and the file will be received.
9. Secure Box
Today there are many third party apps available for hiding a file from the file manager. But it is not an easy task to find the best app that suits our needs. But the File Manager in One Plus devices provides a feature calledSecure Box.
It hides your data from any file explorer and can only be accessed with a password.
To use this feature, just open File Manager and long press on the file that you want to hide, then tap on the 3 – dated menu, then select “Set as Secure”.
To access this file later, open the File Manager, select Secure Box and enter the password.
10.The Inbuilt App Locker
Most of the people use third party app lockers to prevent unauthorized access to desired apps. But these apps take up additional space and most of them are loaded with Ads.
Noticing the demand for these apps, One Plus started including an inbuilt app locker in their devices.
As, a built-in feature, it is much more secure and reliable.
You can utilize this feature by going to Settings -> Security & fingerprint -> App locker.
A list of apps will be shown, you can toggle the button next to the app that you want to be locked.Now the next time you open the app, you will have to enter the password.
So these are some important features which I found to be really interesting.One Plus 5 stands out to be one among the fastest smartphones and with these cool features it is unbeatable.
