  • Is Nokia 8.1 Waterproof?

    N

    Answered By Niharika Pillai | 4 months ago

    Definitely, Nokia 8.1 is not waterproof. Though it has a non-removable back cover, still it is not waterproof. It may sustain a few splashes of water, but it will not withstand drop in water. IP67 or IP68 certification is not very easy to attain. All the ports, SIM stray and speakers need to be water proof and ensure no water penetrates. You need to be careful while using your phone,if it drops in water, you definitely needs to get new one.

    P

    Answered By Pushpanjali Sandeep | 5 months ago

    You can simply reset your Android to factory settings through "Backup and Reset" feature available in settings.

    However, this won't work if your phone has got hanged or you have forgotten the password, for which you require hard reset.


    Here is a Quick reference to hard reset your phone:


    1. Power off your phone (If the phone is hanged, directly perform the next step)
    2. Press and hold Volume Down and Power button to enter recovery mode. (Old phone might use home button as well)
    3. After the Android logo, you'll be presented by a menu.
    4. Select "Wipe Data/Factory reset" from the menu.
    5. Press the Power button to confirm.

    6. Scroll to "Yes" and confirm with Power button.
    7. This will start the Reset Process.

  • How to use Led Flash for notifications on Nokia 8.1 ?

    R

    Answered By Rohan Sengupta | 4 months ago

    Flash Notifications are used to give Flash Alerts when you get a Call / SMS. 


    This feature is already there is most phones by going to:

    1. Settings > Accessibility > Hearing > Flash Alerts
    2. Toggle there to turn it ON/OFF. 

    This is really beneficial in alerting without making any sound.


    • Don't get dishearted if your phone does not have this feature. There are a number of apps available on Play Store.
    • I'll personally recommend you to use the app named Flash Notification available in play store. It is really easy to use and you can enable it for particular apps and for different sound profiles(Ring/Vibrate/DND).
