    App Cloner
    After enabling App Cloner, a copy of a particular app will be generated
    on the Home screen.

    The original app and its copy could run

    simultaneously without affecting each other.

    Clone Apps works only if both the app itself and the phone supports it. If
    a cloned app does not work properly, it means that the function or
    operation is not supported by the app or phone.

    Clone Apps currently do not support data transferring between a cloned
    app and a computer. At most, two app clones can be operated
    simultaneously.
    Apps That Can be Cloned:

    source of fluorescent lamps and of the yellow cast under the light
    source of incandescent lamps. To present the realistic color cast,

    Game Experience
    Hyper Boost

    optimization solution developed by OPPO. Hyper Boost accelerates
    performance when needed, which could realize the two-way

    namely Game Space. It will be automatically installed on the phone with
    the game together in one place, which is convenient for you to unify the
    management of game applications. It also offers the performance
    mode, distraction-free mode, game acceleration, and other features to
    ensure the best quality game experience for you.

    ensuring the game to run smoothly at any time and reducing power
    consumption.

    Hide Games Icons on Home Screen

    It is inconvenient to search if the game icons are everywhere on the
    Home Screen. "Hide Games Icons on Home Screen" makes your Home
    screen organized and tidy.
    Go to [Settings] > [Game Space] >

    , enable [Hide Games Icons on

    Home Screen] then the game icons for the games will no longer be
    shown on the home screen.

    Note: Games Icons will not return to the original display, instead, they
    will appear on the last page of the home screen.

    Game Mode Settings
    Game Space introduces three types of performance modes and a
    selection of distraction-free mode. You can tap on the icons on either
    left or right to open the menu.

    In the middle area, there is an indicator showing the remaining battery
    usage and the current network latency. Swipe up the menu from the
    bottom to load more new features.



    Pattern Adjustment

    Competitive Mode will improve the game app performance, frame rate
    and touch response, further enhancing your gaming experience.
    However, the pitfall is there will be increased power consumption. Thus,
    the pattern adjustment is recommended for some large competitive
    games.

    Balanced Mode will balance the performance and power consumption,
    which is suitable for most light-weight games.

    The low-power mode will lower the game quality, but it will prolong the
    battery usage, which is recommended for the phone in low battery.

    Smart Dual-Channel Network Optimization

    Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to display the menu, and
    enable Smart Dual-Channel Network. This function can further reduce

    232

    mobile data.

    Locking Brightness During Gaming
    Gaming can be affected if the screen suddenly dims. Swipe up from the
    bottom of the screen to display the menu, and enable Brightness Lock
    to lock the screen brightness during gaming. This means that the screen
    brightness is no longer automatically adjusted according to the light
    sensor, and, therefore, the screen won't flicker when the light sensor
    gets blocked during gaming.

    Game Assistant
    While playing games, you can use the side-to-slide hand posture with
    the help of a Game Assistant. It will be displayed in a small window
    where the user can directly enable screen capture, recording, hang-up,
    and other related functions.

    incoming calls and whether to block incoming calls and notifications.

    Answer Calls in Banner Notice

    banner notice, you can answer or reject the calls, and the game will not
    be paused or stopped.

    Decline Incoming Calls

    Floating Window Chat
    When you have to reply to some important messages, with the help of
    Floating Window Chat, you don't have to exit the game anymore. The
    Game Assistant can help you reply to the messages without quitting the
    game.

    After Taping on APP that needs to be displayed in a floating window, the
    APP will appear as a small window on the side of the screen, allowing
