First 12 things to do with the OnePlus 12

You just bought the OnePlus 12, and are looking to set up the device just right. OnePlus offers one of the most feature-rich interfaces on Android, and while the UI itself has a lot of overt styling these days, you still get an extensive amount of configurability.

Then there’s the fact that the OnePlus 12 has a lot of custom features, so if you’re upgrading from an older OnePlus device or switching from another brand, you’ll find plenty of new additions. I used every single device OnePlus launched thus far, and most of the time, I switch back to a OnePlus phone after I’m done with other reviews. I used the OnePlus 12 for just over a month when it launched, and here’s how I set up my phone immediately after transferring data over to the device.

One of the most annoying features in OxygenOS is that the default action for a pull-down gesture anywhere on the home screen is to launch Global Search. This is a feature that’s baked into the UI, and it doesn’t offer much in the way of utility. You’ll needs a lot of permissions as well, and is generally not worth the hassle.
