As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present new challenges every day, there has been a rapid transformation in the way we live, work, and play. With the lockdown extension practiced in many locations nationwide, people are mandated stay in the safety of their homes.
Amidst all this, smartphones have become the single most important device for people across age groups to connect digitally. At the epicenter of fulfilling all communication, entertainment, and financial needs, smartphones are playing an increasingly critical role. It has also become important for smartphone users in the Philippines to maximize the productivity of their smartphones, while staying at home.
OPPO Smartphone users can get the most out of the situation with some of the most popularly used features and apps of the latest ColorOS 7. These will not only keep them up-to-date with ongoing current events, but will also support making their daily routine smoother and more efficient during these tough times.
Here’s a list of some useful ColorOS 7 tips that can help OPPO users get through the lockdown more smoothly:
The Focus Mode
One of the greatest struggles faced while studying or working from home is managing distractions that can derail one’s focus on the things that need to be accomplished. The latest ColorOS 7 includes a Focus Mode feature that allows users to set up a fixed quiet time free of any distractions on their phone when turning on this mode. It restricts you from using your device by disabling any operations on it such as calls and notifications. While in this mode, you can also enjoy relaxing music to keep you focused on the things you’re working on.
Digital Wellbeing App
Staying at home often causes Filipinos to lose track of just how much time they are spending on their phones. This helps you monitor the usage of apps everyday and allows you to control your level of usage by setting a specific timer for the apps. Once the cut off time is reached, you get a notification and the app temporarily disables. The Digital Wellbeing App is a perfect way to take a break from the news that may seem overwhelming or the over usage of social media that can impact one’s mental health.
To handle multiple tasks with their OPPO phones, now even more common due to the new normal set up, users can rely on Split Screen. In this situation, the feature allows OPPO users to run multiple apps in one tap. May it be sending out an email and checking calendar appointments simultaneously to close a meeting schedule or sharing a fun video you found online to a friend via a messenger, the Split Screen feature allows for a better, more engaging and easier usage of multiple applications in a smartphone.
OPPO Relax App
This application offers users moments of comfort with its soothing ambient sounds. It’s a perfect escape from the bombardment of news and social media updates when you need your much needed zen time with the app serving as a peaceful respite from the online noise. The OPPO Relax App will help you unwind and take care of your mental health, as you enjoy your personal quiet time, practice meditation, do yoga, and the like.
The amount of time Filipino users are spending on gaming has also shot up during the lockdown. This feature on ColorOS helps you customize which games your phone should accelerate the launching speed of. It also brings other smart and convenient features such as quick reply, quick screen recording, and blocks notifications during gaming for an uninterrupted gaming experience.
Video content creation has been thriving during the lockdown. With more time on their hands, Filipino users have unleashed their creativity and leveled up their social media content to videos where they share their day-to-day activities and hobbies, and engage in entertaining social media challenges. Soloop is a built-in video editor for ColorOS which allows for users to effortlessly create captivating videos in just seconds and with just a few simple taps.
The lockdown situation is not easy to deal with but you can make the most out of it using your OPPO smartphones. Exploring the new ColorOS 7 features will ease your worries, and at the same time create wonderful moments for yourself and with your loved ones. (Edgard Hilario)
