Looking to use gestures to navigate? Here is how to enable gesture navigation on Realme 2 Pro. Android has utilized mainly three navigation buttons from the very start. Years back, phones shifted from touch buttons to on-screen buttons. This strategy has its pros and cons. The obvious positive was reduced bezel size but that came at the cost of screen real estate. Recently, to keep smaller bezels without costing display space, navigation gestures were introduced. Fortunately, Realme 2 Pro supports navigation gestures natively and you can enable them with this guide.
Realme 2 Pro comes with ColorOS 5.2 which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Thanks to it, the phone is able to have additional functionality that isn’t native to Android. One of these additional features is gesture navigation which is readily integrated within the system. Right below we have the complete instructions along with dedicated screenshots taken directly from the phone for easier reference. This tutorial doesn’t require any system modification or even app installation which should appeal to users who keep their smartphones stock.
Unlike other Android 8.1 smartphones, Realme 2 Pro has native support for a set of navigation gestures to replace the standard buttons. Follow the steps and screenshots ahead to enable it on your specific device.
Step 1 – Open the Settings menu by either scrolling down the notification pull-down and clicking on the gear icon or using the Settings app shortcut.
Step 2 – Scroll through the different sections until you find Smart & Convenient and then tap on it.
Step 3 – Within the menu, click on Navigation Keys.
Step 4 – Now, select Swipe-up Gesture Navigation. After selecting, you will notice the navigation buttons disappearing.
Step 5 – There are in total 4 different gesture options. Further, for each, there is an infographic demonstrating how everything works. You can try all and then stick with the one you like the best.
