Gaming is one of the fun things we do with our mobile devices when we are less busy. We have some that are intense and some others we can play distractedly. We sometimes get interrupted during our gaming session by different notifications and calls from people and it could honestly be annoying. We sometimes get poor gaming results due to the distractions of multiple notifications.
Well, you no longer need to bother about that on your HiOS device. We created a solution. This solution is available on Game Mode. Let’s take a look at some of these features;
This is a feature that allows you to open apps that floats on the gaming screen, without interrupting the gaming experience. Two very important apps can perform these floating functions for now which are Chrome Browser and Whatsapp.
This allows you to easily just take a screenshot of your current screen e.g High score. This feature is located on the Game Panel
This feature allows you to record your screen while playing your game. You don’t need to pause a game to activate this. Just swipe out the Game Panel and click on the screen record icon
Notice any lag during a gaming session due to too many backgrounds running apps? Not to worry. Just click on the Memory Cleaner icon to clear those background apps and enjoy a smooth game time.
Once this is activated, your device would not receive any notification message again. This is necessary if too many messages are interrupting your game session.
Turn on this feature to reject all incoming calls during a gaming session. You would only see the missed calls after you quit the game.
This is used to activate the Wi-Fi of the device while in a gaming session. This may become necessary when the mobile data signal is lost or poor.
This feature is useful particularly when you lose signal on one network provider and you want to quickly switch to another, without interrupting your game. Just tap on the icon and that is all.
This opens up some other features that is not available on the Game panel so you can access them. The following options are under the settings;
Game mode: This can be used to activate or deactivate the game mode at any time.
Game Assistant Panel: This is used to deactivate the Game Panel if you feel it would interrupt your gaming experience.
Advanced settings: This function contains the Turn off automatic brightness adjustment which is used to stop the phone’s brightness from fluctuating due to different light source, the Anti-Inadvertent Mode which prevents the screen from going blank when the sensor is covered, the Network Change Protection which prevents the network from changing from mobile network to Wi-Fi and vice versa.
Game Management: This helps you select/deselect games you want to work with the game mode.

Hello T-Fans,Dual sim devices have become the trend in Africa’s smartphone ecosphere. It is almost impossible to be an African without having asecond SIM card. This is due to inconsistent service packages by serviceproviders, which makes users switching from one network to the other. This isone of the reasons why dual SIM phone sales have surpassed single SIM phonesin the African market.
Switching between networks on mobile data can be an uphilltask as you have to first visit settings, then Network and Internet, then youselect SIM card and finally mobile data. This could be sometimes stressfulespecially if you are in the middle of something and you run out of data on oneSIM.
The HiOS team saw this issue and thought deeply about how tosolve the problem. They now came up with a simple and faster way of switchingSIM mobile data without going through a long process.
Introducing, the Mobile Data Switcher!
How to UseYou don’t need to go to settings again to switch between mobilenetworks again. All you need to do now is swipe down and click on the dataswitcher icon on the notification panel and you switch instantly!

Social media has become part of our daily lives. We are constantly chatting and sending messages to friends and families all day long. Out of all the well-known social media platforms, Whatsapp is the most popular.
Almost everyone is on Whatsapp. During our course of interactions on Whatsapp, lots of messages are sent and received. Out of those messages, some get deleted by us, while some are deleted by the sender.
There are also times where you want to quickly view a message sent to you, without the sender knowing we have viewed the message. Well, I have got good news! We have developed a feature that makes all these possible.
Introducing, the Peek Mode.
The Peek mode is a feature under the Social Turbo App.
How does it work?
Just scroll to your Social TurboApp and open it. Select Peek Mode. And you would see all your missed Whatsapp messages, including the deleted messages.

Hello T-fans,Almost everyone loves to play games. From simple 2D games like Candy Crush to complex 3D games like Call of Duty, there seems to be a game for everyone. Mobile gaming has become one of the perks of using a mobile phone.
But during a gaming session, you might sometimes need to urgently reply a message and at the same time, you don’t want to quite a game you are so deep into. Or it might be a case where you are stuck on a particular stage in the game and you need to search online for assistance, but you know exiting the screen would quit the game or make you miss some actions, so it is not an option. What do you do in such situations?
The answer is The Floating Window!This is a solution introduced on the latest version of HiOS, version 5.5 (and above). How does it work?When gaming and you really need to reply to a Whatsapp message or search for something online, all you need to is trigger the Game Assistant by swiping (either left of the screen, depending on the location of the Smart Panel). You would now select the option you want (Either web browseror Whatsapp). The app appears on the screen in a floating manner without interruptingthe gaming screen. You can move the Floating Window to any part of the screen. Once done, you just click on the “x” on the top of the floating window and it is gone!
