What is Glove Mode & How to use/enable it on Blackview BL8800 series?

2022-05-13 2970 1

Since users have long expected the Glove Mode to be available in Blackview rugged smartphone, Blackview decides to introduce this feature on the new 5G flagship series — BL8800 and BL8800 Pro. When it’s inconvenient to take your gloves off for screen touches, activate the Glove Mode.

What is Glove Mode?

Most devices are programmed to detect only a particular amount of touch gestures, for which the phone won’t recognize your input when you use it while wearing gloves. As its name implies, Glove Mode, a capacity for Android mobiles, allows you to click and slide on the screen as responsive as like when with bare hands by increasing screen touch sensitivity.

  • What Can You Do with Glove Mode?

    With the dedicated Glove Mode on BL8800 and BL8800 Pro, you won’t have to unglove for any phone operation. For outdoors, when traveling on freezingly cold winter days, fishing, hunting, cycling, hiking, camping, or working on construction sites, receiving a call and replying to messages with gloves can be more effortless.

    For indoors, if you’re doing woodworking, repairing, gardening, farming, home cleaning & organizing, pet grooming, DIY, or cooking, keeping your hands wrapped won’t mess up the screen recognition.

  • Cautions

    Please note that if the gloves you have are too thick or if there's extra space inside the gloves, the screen may not be able to detect your gestures properly, so you'd better wear thinner gloves, use the flat of your finger to touch or swipe the screen, and avoid having too much space between the gloves and your fingertips. Gloves with mud and dirt or getting wet might also affect the screen sensitivity.

    Moreover, when not gloving, deactivate the Glove Mode. Increased touch sensitivity may cause unintended touch inputs or screen activation. Repeat the process mentioned above to turn it off.
