One of the best things about OnePlus smartphones is that they come with an Alert Slider that quickly let you switch between Silent, Do Not Disturb (DND) and Ring mode. However, things change a bit on the OnePlus 6. While all the previous OnePlus smartphones came with Alert Slider on the left side, the OnePlus 6 has it on the right above the power button. But, that’s not the only thing that has changed with the OnePlus 6. Until now, the Alert Slider came with toggles for Silent, Do Not Disturb (DND) and Ring mode. But with OnePlus 6, OnePlus has replaced the DND mode with Vibrate.
Well, that doesn’t mean OnePlus has ditched the DND Mode on the OnePlus 6. No sir. The DND Mode is still present on the OnePlus 6. In fact, it has now been improved so that you can finally set the DND Mode to turn on and off automatically at a specific time.
