the Pixel 6 smartphones They are once again using a hole-punch camera this year, which is located in the display camera hole and is currently considered the most elegant solution to the display camera problem. If you are not used to or would like to use trimming in a practical way, you can do it with a handy app: With Energy Ring, the battery status can be displayed with a pie chart.
Smartphone screens have gotten bigger and bigger over the years and at some point it was inevitable that the other components would either have to make room on the front or move elsewhere, also with the Pixel 6. The fingerprint sensor is now integrated into the screen and does the job, there are still some problems. The camera is in the usual place and has been given a camera hole in the screen, which is in the horizontal center at the top edge of the screen in the current generation.
The camera hole is not necessarily attractive, but it has been accepted by most users for a long time. The alternative would be the rather unacceptable notch or a mechanically folding camera. I think that hole it’s the best solution until under-display cameras are fully marketable. Anyone who can’t get used to or would like to use this area can practically do so with the Energy Ring app.
The Energy Ring places a circle around the camera hole that is only slightly larger than the cutout itself, resulting in a thin ring. This can be used to display the current battery status, which can be visualized much better here than with the usual graph in the notification bar. There are still some configuration options.
Energy Ring allows you to set the strength of the ring, set the direction of rotation (clockwise, counterclockwise or bi-directional) and also customize the color of the circle. Multiple colors can be defined, which are used depending on the set limit value. That can be really fancy and shows you at first glance how the battery is doing.
Instead of hiding the hole, you even underline it with it. However, it happens that the view gets stuck on the color ring instead of the camera installed below, so that it is finally less visible than before. The app has been available to download for free from the Google Play Store for a long time and is supported by ads in the settings. Support for Pixel 6 smartphones was created with the latest update.
