    Hello Folks!

    It's been a while since we refreshed OxygenOS 101, so here's 101 #3 where we explore camera features, and improved usability. This is an attempt to educate new users to OxygenOS, as well as a refresher for existing users of OnePlus about the possibilities with OxygenOS. Do more with less!

    1. Smile Capture

    Smile Capture is a unique feature tucked away in camera settings. OxygenOS is all about doing more with less, and at every step, our developers are always focused on improving the experience of how you interact with the software. Smile Capture was built for this purpose. At times it gets difficult to take a steady selfie, wind blowing too fast? Friends jostling around you to get into the frame? With Smile Capture it is easier to click that perfect selfie by just smiling and letting the camera do the rest. Enable this camera setting to automatically take photos when you smile.

    2. Fingerprint Photo

    Following the lines of Smile Capture is Fingerprint Photo. This unique feature lets you click a smooth image by long pressing/touching the fingerprint sensor. Just place your finger over the sensor for 2-3 seconds and the camera auto captures the image in front of you. Nifty, for when you can't hold your phone with two hands for a stable shot, like while moving in a car maybe? With this gesture enabled, its easier to click photos with one hand.

    3. Pocket Mode

    We've all had instances of ghost dialing someone from our pockets or accidentally triggering off an app that ends up draining our battery without our knowledge, to being confused why music started playing randomly while your phone isn't even outside. Pocket touches are common occurrences and quite annoying at times. Enable the Pocket Mode to prevent this from happening. With advanced sensor programming OxygenOS knows when your phone is in your hand and when inside your pocket. So no more accidental touches or ghost calls!

    Hope you found this iteration of OxygenOS 101 useful. As always, we'll be sharing more tips and tricks for your OnePlus device for the best possible smartphone experience! Let us know through comments if you enjoyed this section and suggest some more tips and tricks you have discovered!

    Is the Fingerprint Photo available on the oneplus 6 exclusively? Because I've never seen this toggle on the stable build of oneplus 5 nor in the beta.

    You maybe know or maybe don't know that pocket mode is partly broken at the moment:
    It does not block the fingerprint reader from scanning inside the pocket.
    Some were complaining about constant scans when the reader registered their leg's skin through the fabric.
    Needless to say that this causes an annoying vibration, lights up the display after a few attempts and also locks the reader eventually so users end up with having to type in their pin/pattern.

    As the bug persists since OOS 5.1.9 and wasn't fixed on 5.1.11, please fix this.
    Thank you

    (I'm using a fitbag so I'm not even affected, but should be a quick fix!)

    Pocket mode is to stop the phone from getting unlocked on it's own while in pocket. If ur touching the finger print scanner you are actually unlocking the phone by yourself.

    yeah but you also have smart unlock which opens the device based on outline of the face. Go to Settings > Security. you'll see that there's a face unlock and then there's a smart unlock too.
