Detailed Description

In order to make the objects, technical solutions and advantages of the present invention clearer, the present invention will be described in further detail with reference to the accompanying drawings, and it is apparent that the described embodiments are only a part of the embodiments of the present invention, not all of the embodiments. All other embodiments, which can be derived by a person skilled in the art from the embodiments given herein without making any creative effort, shall fall within the protection scope of the present invention.

The terms "first," "second," and the like in the description and claims of the present invention and in the above-described drawings are used for distinguishing between different objects and not for describing a particular order. Furthermore, the terms "include" and "have," as well as any variations thereof, are intended to cover non-exclusive inclusions. For example, a process, method, system, article, or apparatus that comprises a list of steps or elements is not limited to only those steps or elements listed, but may alternatively include other steps or elements not listed, or inherent to such process, method, or apparatus.

The embodiment of the invention provides a method for outputting a prompt message, which can prevent the signal intensity of a WiFi antenna from being reduced due to the fact that a user holds the position of the WiFi antenna of a terminal device. The following are detailed below.

Referring to fig. 1, fig. 1 is a flowchart illustrating a method for outputting a prompt message according to an embodiment of the present invention. The method for outputting the prompt message shown in fig. 1 may include the following steps:

101. and monitoring whether the terminal equipment is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode.

In the embodiment of the present invention, the terminal device may be a smart phone, a smart watch, a palm computer, a tablet computer, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), a Point of Sales (POS), or the like, and the following description of the embodiment of the present invention will not be repeated.

In the embodiment of the invention, when the video is played, the game is played and the like, the terminal equipment needs to be switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode. For example, when a user needs to play a game on the terminal device by two-hand operation, the terminal device is switched from the portrait mode to the landscape mode, and two hands hold two ends of the terminal device to fix the terminal device.

Since the WiFi antenna of the terminal equipment is usually configured at the upper part of the terminal equipment, when the terminal equipment is in a vertical screen mode, a user holds the lower part of the terminal equipment by hand, and therefore the WiFi antenna cannot be shielded; in the landscape mode, the user is likely to hold both ends of the terminal device at the same time, thereby shielding the WiFi antenna.

However, since the transmitting power of the router providing the WiFi signal is limited, it is impossible to provide a larger transmitting power as a cell base station, so that the requirement for the receiving efficiency of the WiFi antenna is higher, and under the condition of hand-held shielding, the receiving power of the WiFi antenna may be reduced by 10-15 dBm or more, which will seriously affect the signal strength of WiFi.

102. And if the terminal equipment is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode, determining whether the terminal equipment is connected with the wireless fidelity WiFi network.

Based on the characteristic that the receiving efficiency of the WiFi antenna is sensitive, the occurrence of the WiFi antenna position where the user holds the terminal device should be avoided. Therefore, when the terminal device is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode and the terminal device is currently connected to the WiFi network, it is determined that the user is likely to hold the WiFi antenna position of the terminal device, and the user should be reminded to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position by outputting a prompt message and the like.

103. And if the terminal equipment is connected with the WiFi network, outputting a first prompt message to prompt a user to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position of the terminal equipment.

As an alternative implementation, the terminal device may output a dialog box on the display interface to prompt the user to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position of the terminal device. In addition, the terminal device may prompt through effects such as a prompt tone and vibration.

Therefore, by implementing the method described in fig. 1, when the terminal device is connected to the WiFi network and switched to the landscape state, the prompt message is output to prompt the user to avoid holding the position of the WiFi antenna, so that the situation that the WiFi antenna is shielded to reduce the receiving efficiency is avoided, and the WiFi signal strength of the terminal device is improved.

Referring to fig. 2A, fig. 2A is a schematic flowchart illustrating another method for outputting a prompt message according to an embodiment of the present invention. As shown in fig. 2A, the method may include the steps of:

201. and monitoring whether the terminal equipment is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode.

Since the WiFi antenna of the terminal equipment is usually configured at the upper part of the terminal equipment, when the terminal equipment is in a vertical screen mode, a user holds the lower part of the terminal equipment by hand, and therefore the WiFi antenna cannot be shielded; in the landscape mode, the user is likely to hold both ends of the terminal device at the same time, thereby shielding the WiFi antenna.

202. And if the terminal equipment is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode, determining whether the terminal equipment is connected with the wireless fidelity WiFi network.

203. And if the terminal equipment is connected with the WiFi network, acquiring the first signal intensity after the terminal equipment is switched to the transverse screen mode.

When the terminal equipment is connected with the WiFi network and is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode, whether the signal intensity of the terminal equipment is greatly changed before the terminal equipment is switched to the horizontal screen mode or after the terminal equipment is switched to the horizontal screen mode is further judged, and if the signal intensity of the terminal equipment is greatly changed, the WiFi antenna of the terminal equipment is judged to be shielded by the hand of the user.

As an optional implementation manner, when the terminal device monitors that the terminal device is switched to the landscape mode, the terminal device acquires the current signal intensity as the first signal intensity.

204. And acquiring a second signal strength before the terminal equipment is switched to the horizontal screen mode, wherein the second signal strength is stored in the history.

As an optional implementation manner, the terminal device detects the mode (horizontal screen mode or vertical screen mode) and the signal strength of the terminal device at the current time at preset time intervals, and stores the monitored signal strength value and the mode corresponding to the monitored signal strength value into the history.

And after the terminal equipment is switched to the horizontal screen mode, the terminal equipment inquires the historical record, and acquires the signal intensity value monitored for the last time before the terminal equipment is switched to the horizontal screen mode as the second signal intensity.

205. And if the difference value of the second signal strength minus the first signal strength is greater than a preset signal attenuation threshold value, outputting a first prompt message to prompt a user to avoid holding the position of the WiFi antenna of the terminal equipment.

In the embodiment of the invention, the attenuation value of the signal strength after the terminal equipment is switched to the horizontal screen mode is determined by calculating the difference value between the second signal strength and the first signal strength. If the attenuation value of the signal intensity is larger than the preset signal attenuation threshold value, the WiFi antenna position of the terminal equipment held by the user is judged, so that a prompt message can be output to prompt the user, and the WiFi antenna position of the terminal equipment is prevented from being held.

As an optional implementation manner, the terminal device may further directly detect whether the WiFi antenna position of the terminal device is blocked through a sensor, where the optional sensor includes an infrared sensor, an ultrasonic sensor, a pressure sensor, and the like.

For example, the terminal device detects whether the WiFi antenna position of the terminal device is shielded through an infrared sensor; and if the WiFi antenna position of the terminal equipment is blocked, outputting a first prompt message to prompt a user to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position of the terminal equipment.

In addition, a signal intensity threshold value can be set, the signal intensity of the terminal device after being switched to the horizontal screen mode is continuously recorded, the average signal intensity in the horizontal screen mode is calculated, and if the average signal intensity is smaller than the signal intensity threshold value, the first prompt message is output to prompt a user to avoid holding the position of the WiFi antenna of the terminal device.

206. And outputting a second prompt message to determine whether the user knows the position of the WiFi antenna.

Since the positions of the WiFi antennas may be different in different manufacturers and different models of terminal devices, the user may not know the positions of the WiFi antennas on the terminal devices. Therefore, a dialog box can be output to enable the user to select whether to know the position of the WiFi antenna, and if the user does not know the position of the WiFi antenna, the user can be informed of the position of the WiFi antenna through a demonstration animation or a transparent mark.

207. And if the user does not know the position of the WiFi antenna, outputting animation demonstration to inform the user of the position of the WiFi antenna.

For example, the terminal device may output a demonstration animation to inform the user of the WiFi antenna position, in the demonstration animation, the shape of the antenna is identified by thickening the edge, and then the position of the antenna is indicated by an arrow.

208. And outputting a third prompt message to enable the user to select whether to display the WiFi antenna position on a display interface.

209. And if the user selects to display the WiFi antenna position on the display interface, identifying the WiFi antenna position on the display interface by using a transparent icon.

As shown in fig. 2B, fig. 2B is a schematic diagram of a display interface including WiFi antenna location identifiers; the WiFi antenna location can be identified on the display screen by a transparent icon, assuming that the WiFi antenna is near the top edge of the screen. Because the icon is transparent, the normal content displayed on the screen can not be checked by the user, the position of the WiFi antenna of the user can be reminded constantly, and the shielding of the WiFi antenna by holding the WiFi antenna by hand is avoided.

Therefore, by implementing the method described in fig. 2A, when the terminal device is connected to the WiFi network and switched to the landscape state, the prompt message is output to prompt the user to avoid holding the position of the WiFi antenna, so that the situation that the WiFi antenna is shielded to reduce the receiving efficiency is avoided, and the WiFi signal strength of the terminal device is improved.

Referring to fig. 3, fig. 3 is a schematic structural diagram of a terminal device 300 according to an embodiment of the present invention. As shown in fig. 3, the terminal device may include:

and the monitoring unit 301 is configured to monitor whether the terminal device is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode.

A determining unit 302, configured to determine whether the terminal device is connected to the WiFi network if the terminal device is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode.

Since the WiFi antenna of the terminal equipment is usually configured at the upper part of the terminal equipment, when the terminal equipment is in a vertical screen mode, a user holds the lower part of the terminal equipment by hand, and therefore the WiFi antenna cannot be shielded; in the landscape mode, the user is likely to hold both ends of the terminal device at the same time, thereby shielding the WiFi antenna.

However, since the transmitting power of the router providing the WiFi signal is limited, it is impossible to provide a larger transmitting power as a cell base station, so that the requirement for the receiving efficiency of the WiFi antenna is higher, and under the condition of hand-held shielding, the receiving power of the WiFi antenna may be reduced by 10-15 dBm or more, which will seriously affect the signal strength of WiFi.

The first output unit 303 is configured to output a first prompt message to prompt a user to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position of the terminal device if the terminal device is connected to the WiFi network.

As an alternative embodiment, the first output unit 303 may prompt the user to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position of the terminal device by outputting a dialog box on the display interface. In addition, the terminal device may prompt through effects such as a prompt tone and vibration.

Therefore, in the terminal device described in fig. 3, when the terminal device is connected to the WiFi network and switched to the landscape state, the prompt message may be output to prompt the user to avoid holding the position of the WiFi antenna, so as to avoid the reduction of the receiving efficiency due to the shielding of the WiFi antenna, thereby improving the WiFi signal strength of the terminal device.

Wherein, the terminal device shown in fig. 4 is obtained by optimizing the terminal device shown in fig. 3, and compared with the terminal device shown in fig. 3, the terminal device shown in fig. 4 further includes:

a second output unit 304, configured to output a second prompt message to determine whether the user knows the WiFi antenna location.

Since the positions of the WiFi antennas may be different in different manufacturers and different models of terminal devices, the user may not know the positions of the WiFi antennas on the terminal devices. Therefore, the second output unit 304 may output a dialog box to enable the user to select whether to know the WiFi antenna position, and if the user does not know the WiFi antenna position, the user may be informed of the WiFi antenna position by means of a demonstration animation or a transparent mark.

A third output unit 305, configured to output an animation demonstration to inform the user of the WiFi antenna position if the user does not know the WiFi antenna position.

A fourth output unit 306, configured to output the third prompt message to enable the user to select whether to display the WiFi antenna position on the display interface.

An identifying unit 307, configured to identify the WiFi antenna position on the display interface by using a transparent icon if the user selects to display the WiFi antenna position on the display interface.

Assuming that the WiFi antenna is near the upper edge of the screen, the identification unit 307 may identify the WiFi antenna position on the display screen through a transparent icon. Because the icon is transparent, the normal content displayed on the screen can not be checked by the user, the position of the WiFi antenna of the user can be reminded constantly, and the shielding of the WiFi antenna by holding the WiFi antenna by hand is avoided.

A first obtaining unit 308, configured to obtain a first signal strength after the terminal device switches to the landscape mode.

A second obtaining unit 309, configured to obtain a second signal strength before the terminal device switches to the landscape mode, where the second signal strength is stored in the history.

The first output unit 303 is specifically configured to output the first prompt message to prompt a user to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position of the terminal device if the difference between the second signal strength and the first signal strength is greater than a preset signal attenuation threshold.

Therefore, in the terminal device described in fig. 4, when the terminal device is connected to the WiFi network and switched to the landscape state, the prompt message may be output to prompt the user to avoid holding the position of the WiFi antenna, so as to avoid the reduction of the receiving efficiency due to the shielding of the WiFi antenna, thereby improving the WiFi signal strength of the terminal device.

The audio circuit 606 may transmit the electrical signal converted from the received audio data to the speaker 6061, and convert the electrical signal into a sound signal by the speaker 6061 and output the sound signal; on the other hand, the microphone 6062 converts a collected sound signal into an electric signal, receives the electric signal by the audio circuit 606, converts the electric signal into audio data, and outputs the audio data to the processor 608 for processing, and then transmits the audio data to, for example, another cellular phone via the RF circuit 601, or outputs the audio data to the memory 602 for further processing.

WiFi belongs to short-distance wireless transmission technology, and the mobile phone can help a user to receive and send e-mails, browse webpages, access streaming media and the like through the WiFi module 607, and provides wireless broadband internet access for the user. Although fig. 6 shows the WiFi module 607, it is understood that it does not belong to the essential constitution of the handset, and may be omitted entirely as needed within the scope not changing the essence of the invention.

The processor 608 is a control center of the mobile phone, connects various parts of the entire mobile phone by using various interfaces and lines, and performs various functions of the mobile phone and processes data by operating or executing software programs and/or modules stored in the memory 602 and calling data stored in the memory 602, thereby performing overall monitoring of the mobile phone. Alternatively, processor 608 may include one or more processing units; preferably, the processor 608 may integrate an application processor, which primarily handles operating systems, user interfaces, applications, etc., and a modem processor, which primarily handles wireless communications. It will be appreciated that the modem processor described above may not be integrated into the processor 608.

The handset also includes a power supply 609 (e.g., a battery) for powering the various components, which may preferably be logically connected to the processor 608 via a power management system, such that the power management system may be used to manage charging, discharging, and power consumption.

Although not shown, the mobile phone may further include a camera, a bluetooth module, etc., which are not described herein.

In the foregoing embodiment, the method flows of the steps may be implemented based on the structure of the terminal device. Where both the application layer and the operating system kernel can be viewed as components of the abstract structure of processor 608.

In an embodiment of the present invention, the processor 608 calls the program code stored in the memory 602 to perform the following operations:

monitoring whether the terminal equipment is switched from a vertical screen mode to a horizontal screen mode;

if the terminal equipment is switched from the vertical screen mode to the horizontal screen mode, determining whether the terminal equipment is connected with a wireless fidelity (WiFi) network;

and if the terminal equipment is connected with the WiFi network, outputting a first prompt message to prompt a user to avoid holding the WiFi antenna position of the terminal equipment.

As an alternative embodiment, the processor 608, by calling the program code stored in the memory 602, is further configured to:

outputting a second prompt message to determine whether the user knows the position of the WiFi antenna;

and if the user does not know the position of the WiFi antenna, outputting animation demonstration to inform the user of the position of the WiFi antenna.

As an alternative embodiment, the processor 608, by calling the program code stored in the memory 602, is further configured to:

outputting a third prompt message to enable a user to select whether to display the position of the WiFi antenna on a display interface;

and if the user selects to display the WiFi antenna position on the display interface, identifying the WiFi antenna position on the display interface by using a transparent icon.

As an alternative embodiment, the processor 608, by calling the program code stored in the memory 602, is further configured to:

acquiring first signal intensity after the terminal equipment is switched to the transverse screen mode;

acquiring a second signal intensity before the terminal equipment stored in the history record is switched to the horizontal screen mode;
