Oppo’s Find N3 Flip: 4 Tips and Tricks to Make the Most of the Cover Screen

Oppo launched its new flip phone globally this month. The Find N3 Flip is Oppo’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Oppo has packed it with big upgrades. One of key improvements came by way of the cover screen software, which now vastly expands what you can do from that 3.26-inch display without needing to flip open the phone.

All this added functionality on the Find N3 Flip comes as a welcome addition, especially since the Find N2 Flip had no support for third-party apps. But you’ll need to learn basic gestures for a smooth experience on the Find N3 Flip. Let’s run through the basics. 

  • Double-tap the cover screen to wake it
  • Swipe down to view your control shade
  • Swipe up to view your notifications
  • Swipe to the left to view your widgets or mini apps
  • Long-press the cover screen to change your wallpaper

The cover screen doesn’t sit flush with the body and has slightly raised edges to it that feels odd.

Taking photos using the rear cameras: As I mentioned in my Find N3 Flip review, taking selfies or group photos is one of my favorite ways to use the cover screen. That’s because you can use the cover screen as a viewfinder for any of the three rear cameras, which include a 50-megapixel main lens, a 48-megapixel ultrawide lens and a 32-megapixel telephoto lens. Here’s how to take photos with the rear cameras from the cover screen.

1. Tap the camera icon on the cover screen and it’ll turn into a defacto viewfinder

2. Toggle between the ultrawide, main and portrait cameras. You can even shoot video if you want

3. Press the side button to click the photo
