  • 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.

  • 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).

    2. Tap it seven times, at which point you should see the message, "You are now a developer!"
    3. With that done, tap Settings, About Phone, Developer Options, and then tick USB debugging." Then tap OK to approve the setting change. 
    4. Now turn it ON in fastboot mode and unlock the bootloader.
    5. Install a recovery to help you with flashing.
    6. Flash a supporting custom ROM and gapps.

    XDA Developers is a great site to help you with the process, support and Custom ROMs.
