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.

Dark mode is a useful feature especially when it’s night and you don’t want the white elements from the UI blinding you. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, OnePlus has opted to use their own dark mode UI instead of Android’s default dark mode, but it’s not an issue.

You can turn it on or off by going to Settings > Customization > Tone and then turning it on or off. There is no way to schedule dark mode at the moment so you will need to enable it or disable it manually.
