How to set up the OnePlus 3's look and feelIf you just got the OnePlus 3, we show you step-by-step how to start customizing the look and feel of the handset's interface.
[MUSIC] The One plus Three is an inexpensive $400 phone that features high-end specs like a 16 mega pixel camera, Snapdragon 820 processor, and a fast charging battery. The device also has OnePlus' Oxygen OS, which is based on Google Android Marshmallow. Aside from the limited amount of bloatware, there are several customization options. To start tailoring our home screen, long press the screen and tap Customize. Here, you could turn on Shelf, which I'll get into later. For now, you can change the look of your Google search bar, shrink or enlarge the icons, and adjust the density of your app drawer. Next, choose your colors. Folded under settings is a customization menu where you could toggle on and off dark mode. When dark mode is on, there are eight accent colors you can choose, which has various menu items and trimmings throughout the interface. Lastly, assign specific colors to alerts so you can quickly tell what kind of notification you receive by looking at the color of the LED light. There are a bunch of options for controls too. Choose exactly what shortcuts you see in a drop down menu by clicking the pencil on the top right. To use on screen buttons rather than the two keys at the bottom of the bessel here, go to the buttons menu Here you can also assign a specific action when you long press the home button. Finally, if you choose to enable shelf, personalize it by adding widgets with the plus button on the right. Shelf is the page on the left of your home screen that's dedicated to your shortcuts. You can quickly access your favorite contacts, your email, recent apps, to do list, and more. You can also rearrange each widget whichever order you want.
