    Search for "ambient display" in settings and enable it.

    I think, I'm not 100% sure what you mean - can you send me a link of the video with where you saw this?

    Download the latest ROM and place it in your phones internal storage:

    Enter recovery mode (turn phone off, then turn on whilst holding power and volume down simultaneously)

    In recovery wipe data, and then do NOT reboot to system, instead go back and choose install from SD and navigate to the ROM file.

    TMO device does not have the same settings. From the video I saw, you hold your finger on the fingerprint scanner and app shortcuts will appear. That is in the utilities section of settings and the TMO 6t does not have thaym

    How to set face unlock on double tap wake up. Double tap wakeup works only for indisplay finger print. Face unlock is working only on power button wake up.

    Yes I did - successfully up to this point.
    The only solution I have found so far is to wipe once again and immediately flash Magisk from TWRP (copy it to phone via TWRP MTP)

    Hey everyone, so I just got my new 6T here and had a quick question for everyone (I searched the forum and couldn't find it, so apologies if this is elsewhere). When I use the inscreen fingerprint reader, it goes right to my home screen instead of whatever app I had pulled up when I turned my screen off. Is there a way to make it unlock back to that app? Super minor point, I know, but I just thought I'd ask! Thank you for taking the time to read this and hope you have a wonderful day!

    Just works fine for me. It reopens the app I left after scanning my fingerprint.

    Hmm, the good old "turning it off and back on again" trick made it stop doing that and go back to the default (what you're experiencing). Weird. Thanks for your input!

    Hey, does anyone know if it's possible to change the default home page (I'd prefer to have the home page in the middle instead of on the left of 2 other screens). I know normally you can just long press the home page and then tap on the house on the top of the page you want to make the default home page but I don't see that option on the 6t. Or do I really need to install a different launcher?

    When you pick up or move the 6T, the screen activates automatically to show the date and time, and the fingerprint scanner.

    Weird, I haven't used the default launcher in years because I have Nova Launcher Prime. I could not find any setting on the default launcher to set the home page.

    Try reporting this as a bug or as a feature request.

    I have few doubts regarding Camera

    1. The Size of files ( photo taken in manual or other mood ) is less then 2MB ? I was expecting a size of 5MB +. May be I shot a close shot. Need to try a long shot ( something like landscape ) and see how is photo file size coming up.

    2. After editing the photos

    The photo when I compared at 3 different phones after uploading to Instagram. I found one plus display has got a higher Colour depth then other two. ( I would like to check the same at Mac system )

    has anyone else noted the same !

    kindly enlighten me !

    thank you

    A microphone.
    If you shine the bottom with a flashlight, you'll see 5 holes to the left of the charging port. That's the speaker like you said. But if you look at the right side of the port, you'll notice only one is a hole and the other 4 are faux. That one true hole is the microphone. I suppose this was done for aesthetics and to keep the bottom symmetrical.

    T-Mobile variant

    I've having issues with the fingerprint reader not being able to be used with apps sometimes.

    It happens to work sometimes and then seamlessly stops working and i will manually need to login(example, PayPal, discover banking app, chase banking app.)

    After a random amount of time it'll come back and will be able to use the fingerprint reader in the apps mentioned above.

    the lock screen fingerprint unlock always works and haven't had issues with it.

    I've rebooted the device multiple times to no avail.

    any help will be appreciated, thanks!

    Have you tried removing the fingerprints and then adding them again?
