Why is Pocket Mode annoying to some Users?

Unwanted Wake-Ups: Pocket mode wakes up your phone every time you take it out of your pocket due to its motion sensor functionality, which can be irritating.

Users need to be aware of Pocket mode functionality: It’s not easy to find this feature in the settings menu, and users are usually unaware of its existence or usage.

What is Pocket Mode in OnePlus Nord?

Pocket Mode is a feature in the OnePlus Nord and its predecessors, like the OnePlus 8T. Pocket Mode disables all audio output from your device while in your pocket. This prevents accidental activation of any applications or settings when the device is stored away.

However, if you don’t want this feature active, it’s easy to disable it by following the steps below.

1. Open the Settings app on your OnePlus Nord and tap “Display” from the list of options.

2. Scroll down until you find a toggle labeled “Pocket Mode.” You may have to scroll down further on some versions of OxygenOS. Please tap on the toggle to switch it off.

3. Once disabled, Pocket Mode will no longer be active, and all audio output will be unaffected by what kind of environment your phone is in as long as it remains unlocked and open for use.

4. If needed, you can always re-enable Pocket Mode by following these steps and switching the toggle back on (it will be grayed out when disabled).



 With just a few simple steps, you can easily turn off Pocket Mode in your OnePlus Nord smartphone whenever possible! Whether you want more control over when audio output is enabled or need to save some battery life by preventing accidental activations when not in use, disabling this feature can help with both scenarios while still allowing access to important notifications and other sound-related functions when desired.
