Most of the time, the smartphone manufacturers push various updates to the smartphone. When I got the OnePlus 8 Pro device, it already had the update pending. So first, I updated the smartphone to the latest version and started using it. Once updating the device firmware, I visited the Google Play Store and started the Apps update process. I updated all the inbuilt apps to the latest versions from Google Play Store.

After updating the device firmware and most of the inbuilt apps, the next thing to do is set up Google Apps on your new smartphone. I’d already configured my Gmail Account on the OnePlus 8 Pro device, hence skipping this part. If it’s not, you can set up a Gmail account and then import the settings from Google Synchronization.

Also, this process reduces the time consumed when you install and long to the essential apps from Google Play Store.

These days, mobile payment options are taking over the traditional methods of payment. You can use the UPI payment apps or banking apps to transfer or manage your money with ease.

If you don’t prefer mobile banking or hassle-free payments, then you can skip this step.

After doing the absolute essential things, it’s time to personalize the smartphone according to your needs. This includes changing the wallpaper, changing the ringtone, setting the alarm, or anything that improves the usability of the smartphone. You can install the third-party wallpaper apps or the launcher apps if that suits your needs.
