Android 7.0 launching is already behind us. So, as with previous releases, the latest Android includes several hidden features. Some of them proves to be a useful and perhaps cause of their hiding is that they can not be fully tested. Would you like to “bury” in the system of your smartphone?

System UI Tuner
System UI Tuner allows you to select icons displayed on the notification bar. You can use it to turn on or turn off your Wi-Fi or cellular connection, airplane mode, or alarms. It is also possible to display the seconds by the clock, as well as the percentage rate of charge of the battery in the battery icon, the mode of sharing the screen by moving your finger up from the “review”, which recently launched applications. This is a very convenient solution – with a single gesture you can change the size of the window you are currently using and quickly select an application that will fill the second part of the screen. The panel System UI Tuner is also an option to enable advanced notification settings – can prioritize applications and set the way in which they will inform us about different events. When you turn on this feature, each application will be able to use one of the six levels of the kinds of permissions from a complete lack of notification, and display them in different ways.
To unlock the System UI Tuner expand the quick settings menu and hold the gear icon appears in the upper right corner of the screen. The icon should start to spin, a short vibration to let you know that the additional features are unlocked.

Night mode
This feature, which was expected to Android 7.0 officially, but Google abandon work on this mechanism. Interestingly it was not removed from the operating system. Night mode can be turned on through the application called “Night Mode Enabler” available for free in the Google Play store. The application rearranges available from the user interface settings and enables access to night mode. Before using this app, should be included steps to unlock System UI Tuner as described in the preceding paragraph. More, why night mode in smartphone is worth using, you may read in one of the earlier posts – in short, it can significantly improve the quality of your sleep and reduce trouble falling asleep, if you have them.
