Here Are The First 8 Things to Do On Your New Realme Phone

Below is the list of things that you need to, once you get your hands on the Realme smartphone:

Set Up Navigation Gestures on your Realme Phone

Gesture navigation is the thing that most of the modern-day smartphones feature. In fact, the latest Android operating system, i.e. the Android 10 also features a new interactive navigation gesture-based system. Hence, it becomes a bit necessary to enable navigation gestures to get that full view experience. To enable the gesture navigation:

  • Head over to the Settings > Convenience Aid > Navigation keys > Swipe-up gestures to enable them.

There are a few other options available by which you can set to go back by swiping from right or left or back from both sides, etc.

Uninstall Bloatware

Bloatware is crapware that should not be provided in the first place by the OEM. In fact, several OEMs are headed this way in providing the user with a vanilla experience. However, what’s good is that Realme smartphone does not include too many bloatware like Xiaomi’s MIUI, etc. To uninstall, you just tap and hold on the app icon that you want to get rid off and that’s it!

Use a Third-Party Launcher

Realme UI or the ColorOS custom skin of Realme smartphone is not as smooth or easy to use and looks a bit cartoonish. So, it better advised that you use a third-party launcher if you have bought a new Realme smartphone. Some of the better launchers could be Nova launcher, Lawnchair, Action Launcher, etc.

Enable Smart Sidebar on your Realme Phone

If you want to access the apps installed on your device then, Smart Sidebar is one of the best options that you must enable on your Realme smartphone. A white vertical line will be shown in the top right corner which you can swipe inwards on the line to enable the smart sidebar. Moreover, you can also add your favorite apps on the sidebar and click on them to access directly from wherever you are on your smartphone. To enable this:

  • Settings > Convenience Aid > Smart Sidebar.

Enable Automatic Call Recording

If you have bought a Realme XT then, it has an inbuilt automatic call recording feature. You can choose to record all the incoming calls as well as choose to record calls only from unknown callers. To enable Dialer > Settings > Call Recording and select Auto Record.

Activate Dolby Atmos

There are a few Realme devices that feature the Dolby Atmos and Dolby Atmos doesn’t need any introduction. So, if you own a Realme device with Dolby atmos then, head over to Settings > Sound & Vibrations, and select Dolby Atmos. You can choose the preset according to your convenience and that’s it.


Enable Sleep Standby Optimization

If you want to extend the battery life of your device, you should enable the sleep standby optimization. This saves the battery of your device while you are sleeping but once you pick up your device it switches back to its normal routine. Head over to battery settings>>Power saver and toggle on the Sleep Standby option.
