The Gestures mode is the default mode of navigation on LG Stylo 6. At the first glance, it feels quite annoying. We fail to recognize how to go back, get to the home screen or view the running apps.
However, once you get a hang of it, you’ll find it easier than the home touch buttons. In this post, we are going to learn the 4 gestures to go back, get to the home screen, view the recent apps, and switch between the running apps.
So let’s get going –
LG Stylo 6 Gestures – How to Go Back
To go back from any screen, swipe the left or right edge of the screen as shown in the above animation.
On my Stylo 6, I’m on the Software info page in the Settings app.
Let’s swipe in from the right edge.
This brings me to the “About Phone” page. Let’s again swipe in from the right edge.
Now I’ve landed on the System page. Let’s swipe in once again.
Now, I’m on the first page of the settings app. One more swipe and we will land on the home screen.
We have reached the Stylo 6 home screen using the back gesture.
LG Stylo 6 Gestures – How to get to Home Screen
A swipe up from the bottom edge will take you to the Stylo 6 home screen.
I’m on the first page of the Settings up. Let’s swipe up the screen from the bottom edge. This will take us to the home screen.
We are now on the Stylo 6 home screen. This way you can get to the home screen from anywhere on the phone.
LG Stylo 6 Gestures – How to Close apps
To view and close the recent apps, we need to swipe up and hold the screen.
Swipe up the screen and keep holding until you see the recent app tile.
The most recent app is the Gallery app. To close this app we need to throw the app tile in the upward direction.
I’ve closed the Gallery app. The next app on the list is the “Settings” app. You can close a single app or all apps at once by tapping “Clear all” as marked in the above screenshot.
LG Stylo 6 Gestures – Switch between the running apps
The last gesture allows us to switch between the running apps.
Notice the bar at the bottom edge of the screen. We need to swipe along this bar to switch between the recent apps.
I was using the phone dialer. By swiping in the left direction I get to switch to the chrome browser.
Likewise, a right swipe along the bottom border brings me to the messaging app.
