We have seen innovation at its peak in smartphones for the past couple of years. One such innovation is the punch-hole. Punch-hole has become a popular asset in a smartphone these days.

This also gives the phones a new and modern look.
While it provides a better aspect ratio and a larger screen, it is also annoying at times. Obviously, you won’t like having a black spot floating around in the middle of the screen when you are watching something or playing games. Well, everything has a good side and a downside. Let’s look at the bright side of the punch hole. Yes, you can put the punch hole into use for other productive stuff. Today’s article will cover one of the most amazing features that you can do with your punch hole.
The OnePlus 8 series devices are the first-ever devices by OnePlus to come with a punch hole. While some people appreciate the punch hole design, it sometimes really feel annoying to have a black spot floating around your display. People also use wallpapers to hide the punch hole. Why hide it, when you can use it in a much better and productive way. This is when Energy Ring comes into the picture.
Energy Ring is a free app that lets you know the battery level using the punch hole. Sounds interesting, but how does it work?
