The OnePlus 8T was released not too long ago and it is the company’s latest and second flagship smartphone of 2020. As we covered in our OnePlus 8T review, it is, by all accounts, a great phone with excellent hardware and software features.

If you’re planning to make this your daily driver for the considerable future, here are some of our tips on what are the first things that you might want to do with the phone.

With the iPhone X, Apple popularized facial recognition on smartphones. We’ve seen similar features being offered by various Android devices since, and if you prefer facial unlock over a PIN or fingerprint, go to Settings > Security & Lock Screen > Face Unlock and follow the instructions to set it up.

That being said, it should be noted that as far as Android devices are concerned, different phones might use different facial recognition technology, so whether or not this is more secure than fingerprint or a PIN will vary, so do try it out first before deciding whether or not this should be your primary method of securing your device.
