    DETAILED DESCRIPTION



    [0012] In order to make the solutions of the disclosure understood by those skilled in the art, the technical solutions in the embodiments of the disclosure will be clearly and completely described below in combination with the drawings in the embodiments of the disclosure. It is apparent that the described embodiments are not all embodiments but only part of embodiments of the disclosure.

    [0013] Terms "first", "second" or the like in the specification, claims and drawings of the disclosure are adopted not to describe a specific sequence but to distinguish different objects. In addition, terms "include" and "have" and any transformations thereof are intended to cover nonexclusive inclusions. For example, a process, method, system, product or device including a series of steps or units is not limited to the steps or units which have been listed but optionally further includes steps or units which are not listed or optionally further includes other steps or units intrinsic to the process, the method, the product or the device.

    [0014] "Embodiment" mentioned in the disclosure means that a specific feature, structure or characteristic described in combination with an embodiment may be included in at least one embodiment of the disclosure. Each position where this phrase appears in the specification does not always refer to the same embodiment as well as an independent or alternative embodiment mutually exclusive to another embodiment. It is explicitly and implicitly understood by those skilled in the art that the embodiments described in the disclosure may be combined with other embodiments.

    [0015] An electronic device involved in the embodiments of the disclosure may include various handheld devices, vehicle-mounted devices, wearable devices, computing devices or other processing devices connected to wireless modems, which have a wireless communication function, as well as User Equipment (UE), Mobile Stations (MSs), terminal devices or the like in various forms. For convenient description, the devices mentioned above are collectively referred to as electronic devices.

    [0016] The embodiments of the disclosure will be introduced below in detail.

    [0017] Referring to FIG. 1, FIG. 1 is a structure diagram of an electronic device 100 according to an embodiment of the disclosure. The electronic device 100 includes a shell 110, a display 120 and a main board 130. A processor 140, a memory 150, a camera 160 or the like are arranged on the main board 130.

    [0018] The display 120 is configured to display an application program running in foreground.

    [0019] The memory 150 is configured to store a preset application program, a falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being higher than a preset falling probability and the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being a probability that the electronic device 100 falls when the preset application program runs in foreground.

    [0020] The processor 140 is configured to detect whether the application program running in foreground is the preset application program or not and control the display 120 to output a prompting message, when it is determined that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program. The prompting message is configured to prompt the user to prevent the electronic device from falling.

    [0021] The display 120 includes a display driving circuit, a display screen and a touch screen. The display driving circuit is configured to control the display screen to display content according to display data and display parameter (for example, luminance, color and saturation) of a picture. The touch screen is configured to detect a touch operation. The display screen is an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display screen.

    [0022] The main board 130 may have any size and any shape which may be accommodated in the electronic device. There are no exclusive limits made herein.

    [0023] The processor 140 is a control center of a mobile terminal. The processor 140 connects with respective parts of the electronic device via various interfaces and wirings and executes various functions and data processing of the electronic device by running or executing a software program and/or module(s) stored in the memory 150 and calling data stored in the memory 150, thereby monitoring the whole electronic device. In at least one embodiment, the processor 140 may integrate an application processor and a modulation and demodulation processor. The application processor mainly processes an operating system, a user interface, an application program or the like. The modulation and demodulation processor mainly processes wireless communication. It can be understood that the modulation and demodulation processor may also not be integrated into the processor 140.

    [0024] The memory 150 may be configured to store the software program and one or more modules. The processor 140 runs the software program and the one or more module stored in the memory 150, thereby executing various function applications and data processing of the electronic device. The memory 150 may mainly include a program storage region and a data storage region. The program storage region may store the operating system, an application program required by at least one function or the like. The data storage region may store data generated in use of the electronic device or the like. In addition, the memory 150 may include a high-speed Random Access Memory (RAM) and may further include a nonvolatile memory, for example, at least one disk storage device, flash memory device or other volatile solid-state storage device.

    [0025] As can be seen, in the embodiments of the disclosure, the electronic device includes the processor as well as the display and the memory connected with the processor. The display is configured to display the application program running in foreground. The memory is configured to store the preset application program, the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being higher than the preset falling probability and the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being the probability that the electronic device falls when the preset application program runs in foreground. The processor is configured to detect whether the application program running in foreground is the preset application program or not and control the display to output the prompting message, when it is determined that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program. As can be seen, when it is determined that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program of which the falling probability is higher than the preset falling probability in using, the electronic device outputs the prompting message to prompt a user that the electronic device likely occurs to fall when the present application program is used and prompt the user to regulate a manner of operating the present application program to prevent occurrence of the falling event. It is favorable for reducing the falling probability of the electronic device and prolonging service life of the electronic device.

    [0026] In a possible example, as shown in FIG. 2, the electronic device 100 further includes an accelerometer 170. The processor 140, before detecting whether the application program running in foreground is the preset application program or not, is further configured to acquire a reference application program running in foreground when the accelerometer 170 detects that the electronic device 100 falls, determine a falling probability corresponding to the reference application program according to a historical usage record and determine that the reference application program is the preset application program when it is judged that the falling probability corresponding to the reference application program is higher than the preset falling probability prestored in the memory 150.

    [0027] In a possible example, as shown in FIG. 3, the electronic device 100 further includes a communication module 180. Before the processor 140 detects whether the application program running in foreground is the preset application program or not, a preset application set sent by a server is received through the communication module 180, the preset application set including at least one application program and the at least one application program being an application program determined by the server according to received falling data from a plurality of electronic devices. The processor 140 is configured to select an application program which has been installed in the electronic device 100 in the preset application set as the preset application program.

    [0028] As shown in FIG. 4, the electronic device is connected in communication with the server through a mobile communication network. The server may be a server owned by a manufacturer of the electronic device and is configured to collect falling data of each of electronic devices, perform data analysis according to a preset data analysis model and determine the preset application set according to an obtained analysis.

    [0029] In a possible example, in controlling the display 120 to output the prompting message when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, the processor 140 is configured to acquire an environmental parameter when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program and control the display 120 to output the prompting message according to the environmental parameter.

    [0030] In the possible example, in controlling the display 120 to output the prompting message according to the environmental parameter, the processor 140 is configured to control the display 120 to output the prompting message, when it is detected that a height parameter of the electronic device 100 is greater than a preset height threshold value, and/or, when it is detected that a temperature parameter in the environmental parameter is smaller than a preset temperature threshold value.

    [0031] In a possible example, in controlling the display 120 to output the prompting message when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, the processor 140 is configured to, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, acquire an operating frequency of the touch screen in the display 120 within a preset time and control the display 120 to output the prompting message when it is detected that the operating frequency is higher than a preset frequency threshold value.

    [0032] In a possible example, in controlling the display 120 to output the prompting message, the processor 140 is configured to acquire a falling probability of the application program running in foreground, determine an output strategy for the prompting message according to the falling probability and control the display 120 to output the prompting message according to the output strategy.

    [0033] Referring to FIG. 5, FIG. 5 is a flowchart of a prompting method according to an embodiment of the disclosure. The prompting method is applied to the electronic device shown in any one of FIG. 1 to 4. As shown in FIG. 5, the method includes the following operations.

    [0034] In S201, the electronic device determines an application program running in foreground.

    [0035] The application program running in foreground is an application program presently displayed on a display screen of the electronic device, i.e., an application program presently operated and controlled by a user.

    [0036] Before the electronic device determines the presently running application program, the electronic device detects a startup operation for any application program which has been installed in the electronic device. The startup operation may be, for example, a clicking operation over an application icon corresponding to any one application program which has been installed, a voice operation or the like.

    [0037] The electronic device determines the presently running application program may be implemented as follows. The electronic device determines the application program running in foreground at a preset interval. The preset interval may be preset by a developer before the electronic device is delivered or may be an average time interval, determined according to historical usage of the electronic device by the user, for starting the application program, which will not be limited herein.

    [0038] In S202, the electronic device detects whether the application program running in foreground is a preset application program or not, a falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being higher than a preset falling probability and the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being a probability that an electronic device falls when the preset application program runs in foreground.

    [0039] The preset application program may be determined by the electronic device and may also be sent to the electronic device by the server of the manufacturer of the electronic device. There are no exclusive limits made herein.

    [0040] The falling probability may be a ratio of the number of times of falling during running of the preset application program in foreground to the total number of times for which the electronic device falls and may also be a ratio of the number of times of falling during running of the preset application program in foreground to the number of times for which the preset application program runs in foreground. The preset falling probability may be determined by the developer according to a test and analysis result obtained before the electronic device is delivered and then is preset in the electronic device or the server.

    [0041] In S203, the electronic device outputs a prompting message, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program.

    [0042] There is a plurality of preset application programs. When the application program running in foreground is any one of preset application programs, the prompting message is output.

    [0043] The prompting message may be outputted in various manners, such as, voice prompting, breathing light flickering prompting and text message prompting. There are no exclusive limits made herein.

    [0044] Different application programs may correspond to different output manners for the prompting message. For example, when the preset application program is a game application program, a breathing light may flicker to prompt the user so as to avoid interference to a game operation of the user. When the preset application program is a call application program, the user may be prompted by vibration.

    [0045] When the prompting message is a text prompting message, different application programs may use different positions for outputting a text prompting message to enable the position for outputting the text prompting message not to influence the operation of the user or view a content displayed on the display screen by the user.

    [0046] In a possible example, the operation that the prompting message is output includes that a falling probability of the application program running in foreground is acquired; an output strategy for the prompting message is determined according to the falling probability; and the prompting message is output according to the output strategy.

    [0047] Various manners may be adopted for determining the output strategy for the prompting message according to the falling probability. For example, an output frequency of the prompting message may be determined according to the falling probability and the output frequency of the prompting message may be directly proportional to the falling probability. Alternatively, the output manner for the prompting message may be determined according to the falling probability. There are no exclusive limits made herein.

    [0048] In the embodiment of the disclosure, the electronic device determines the application program running in foreground at first, then detects whether the application program running foreground is the preset application program or not, the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being higher than the preset falling probability and the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being the probability that the electronic device falls when the preset application program runs in foreground, and finally, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, outputs the prompting message. Thus, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program of which the falling probability is higher than the preset falling probability in using, the electronic device outputs the prompting message to prompt the user that a falling event is likely to occur when the present application program is used and prompt the user to regulate a manner of operating the present application program to prevent occurrence of the falling event. It is favorable for reducing the falling probability of the electronic device and prolonging service life of the electronic device.

    [0049] In a possible example, before when it is detected whether the application program running in foreground is the preset application program or not, when it is detected that the electronic device falls, a reference application program running in foreground is acquired. A falling probability corresponding to the reference application program is determined according to a historical usage record. When it is determined that the falling probability corresponding to the reference application program is higher than the preset falling probability, it is determined that the reference application program is the preset application program.

    [0050] When an accelerometer detects that an acceleration direction or acceleration value of the electronic device suddenly changes, it may be determined that the electronic device falls.

    [0051] For example, when the electronic device is horizontally placed, as shown in FIG. 6, an axis X, an axis Y and an axis Z of the accelerometer are shown in the figure. An acceleration of the electronic device is gravity acceleration in the direction of the axis Z. When a falling event occurs to the electronic device, as shown in FIG. 7, the acceleration direction of the electronic device may be an acceleration direction shown in the figure, which is different from the acceleration direction in horizontal placement. At this time, the acceleration suddenly changes and thus the electronic device falls.

    [0052] The reference application program running in foreground is an application program displayed on the display screen of the electronic device when the electronic device falls.

    [0053] The historical usage record is a record made when the electronic device fell previously. The historical usage record includes a parameter such as the application program displayed in foreground during falling, a falling height or the like.

    [0054] Thus, as can be seen in the example that, when the electronic device falls, the falling probability of the foreground reference application program is determined according to the historical usage record and the reference application program is determined to be the preset application program according to the falling probability. Determination of the preset application program is consistent with a using habit of the user, which is favorable for improving determination accuracy and intelligence of the preset application program.

    [0055] In a possible example, before it is detected whether the application program running in foreground is the preset application program or not, a set of preset applications sent by a server is received, the set of preset applications including at least one application program and the at least one application program being an application program determined by the server according to received falling data from a plurality of electronic devices. An application program which has been installed in the electronic device in the set of preset applications is selected as the preset application program.

    [0056] The server performs data statistics according to the falling data of the plurality of electronic devices. The server puts the numbers of times for which the plurality of electronic devices running the same foreground application program fall together to perform statistics, and thus further determines a falling probability of the foreground application program. The server determines whether to add the application program into the set of preset applications or not according to the falling probability.

    [0057] Thus it can be seen in the example that, the electronic device receives the preset application set sent by the serve and selects an application program suitable for the electronic device as the preset application program according to the set of preset applications. That is, the preset application program is determined by the server according to big data, which is favorable for improving determination comprehensiveness and accuracy of the preset application program. Moreover, determination through the server prevents a system resource of the electronic device from being occupied and is favorable for improving convenience and speed for determination of the preset application program.

    [0058] In a possible example, the operation that the prompting message is output when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program includes that, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, an environmental parameter is acquired; and the prompting message is output according to the environmental parameter.

    [0059] The environmental parameter includes a height parameter, a temperature parameter, a ground material parameter or the like. The height parameter may be detected by an infrared sensor. The temperature parameter may be determined by a temperature sensor. The ground material parameter may be detected by a camera.

    [0060] The operation that the prompting message is output according to the environmental parameter refers to that the prompting message is output when it is detected that the environmental parameter is consistent with a preset condition. There may be various preset conditions, for example, a height condition, a temperature condition and a ground material condition. There are no exclusive limits made herein.

    [0061] Thus it can be seen in the example that, the electronic device outputs the prompting message according to the environmental parameter rather than outputting the prompting message immediately responsive to detecting that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, which avoids power consumption of the electronic device and influence on the operation of the user when the unnecessary prompting message is output. It is favorable for improving prompt accuracy.

    [0062] In a possible example, the operation that the prompting message is output according to the environmental parameter includes that, when it is detected that the height parameter of the electronic device is greater than a preset height threshold value, and/or, when it is detected that the temperature parameter in the environmental parameter is smaller than a preset temperature threshold value, the prompting message is output.

    [0063] The preset height threshold value and the temperature threshold value may be empirical values and may be preset in the program of the electronic device by the developer before delivery. The preset height threshold value is a minimum height parameter which may cause a component to be damaged after occurrence of falling. The preset temperature threshold value is a maximum temperature parameter in a plurality of temperature parameters which may cause the electronic device to be dropped by the user due to low temperature parameters.

    [0064] Thus it can be seen in the example that, when it is detected that the height parameter is greater than the preset height threshold value and/or the temperature parameter is smaller than the preset temperature threshold value, the electronic device outputs the prompting message, which is favorable for reducing the number of times of unnecessary message prompting and reducing power consumption of the electronic device.

    [0065] In a possible example, the operation that the prompting message is output when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program includes that, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, an operating frequency for the touch screen within a preset time is acquired; and when it is detected that the operating frequency is higher than a preset frequency threshold value, the prompting message is output.

    [0066] The operating frequency may be the number of operations per minute. The operating frequency within the preset time may be an average operating frequency in the preset time.

    [0067] For example, when the application program running in foreground and the preset application program are both game application programs, since the numbers of operations over the touch screen within the preset time for the game application programs are excessively large, the electronic device is likely to fall due to misoperations in an operating process.

    [0068] Thus it can be seen in the example that, when the operating frequency for the touch screen in the preset time is higher than the preset frequency threshold value, the electronic device outputs the prompting message, which is favorable for improving falling prompting timeliness and accuracy.

    [0069] In line with the embodiment shown in FIG. 5, referring to FIG. 8, FIG. 8 is a flowchart of a prompting method according to an embodiment of the disclosure. The prompting method is applied to the electronic device of any embodiment of FIG. 1 to 4 and, as shown in the figure, includes the following operations.

    [0070] In S301, the electronic device, when it is detected that the electronic device falls, acquires a reference application program running in foreground.

    [0071] In S302, the electronic device determines a falling probability corresponding to the reference application program according to a historical usage record.

    [0072] In S303, the electronic device determines that the reference application program is a preset application program when it is determined that the falling probability is higher than a preset falling probability.

    [0073] In S304, the electronic device determines an application program running in foreground.

    [0074] In S305, the electronic device detects whether the application program running in foreground is the preset application program or not.

    [0075] In S306, the electronic device, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, acquires an environmental parameter.

    [0076] In S307, the electronic device, when it is determined that a temperature parameter in the environmental parameter is smaller than a preset temperature threshold value, outputs a prompting message.

    [0077] It can be seen that, in the embodiment of the disclosure, the electronic device determines the application program running in foreground at first, then detects whether the application program running foreground is the preset application program or not, the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being higher than the preset falling probability and the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being the probability that the electronic device falls when the preset application program runs in foreground, and finally, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, outputs the prompting message. Thus it can be seen that the electronic device, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program of which the corresponding falling probability is higher than the preset falling probability in a using process, outputs the prompting message to prompt the user that a falling event is likely to occur when the present application program is used and prompt the user to regulate a manner of operating the present application program to prevent occurrence of the falling event, which is favorable for reducing the falling probability of the electronic device and prolonging service life of the electronic device.

    [0078] In addition, when the electronic device falls, the falling probability of the foreground reference application program is determined according to the historical usage record and the reference application program is determined to be the preset application program according to the falling probability. Determination of the preset application program is consistent with a using habit of the user, which is favorable for improving determination accuracy and intelligence of the preset application program.

    [0079] Moreover, the electronic device outputs the prompting message when the temperature parameter is lower than the preset temperature threshold value rather than outputting the prompting message immediately responsive to detecting that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, which avoids power consumption of the electronic device and influence on the operation of the user when the unnecessary prompting message is output and is favorable for improving falling prompting accuracy.

    [0080] In line with the embodiment shown in FIG. 5, referring to FIG. 9, FIG. 9 is a flowchart of a prompting method according to an embodiment of the disclosure. The prompting method is applied to the electronic device of any embodiment of FIG. 1 to 4 and, as shown in the figure, includes the following operations.

    [0081] In S401, the electronic device receives a preset application set sent by a server, the preset application set including at least one application program and the at least one application program being an application program determined by the server according to received falling data of a plurality of electronic devices.

    [0082] In S402, the electronic device selects an application program which has been installed in the electronic device in the preset application set as the preset application program.

    [0083] In S403, the electronic device determines an application program running in foreground.

    [0084] In S404, the electronic device detects whether the application program running in foreground is a preset application program or not, a falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being higher than a preset falling probability and the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being a probability that the electronic device falls when the preset application program runs in foreground.

    [0085] In S405, the electronic device, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, acquires an operating frequency for a touch screen within a preset time.

    [0086] In S406, the electronic device, when it is detected that the operating frequency is higher than a preset frequency threshold value, outputs a prompting message.

    [0087] It can be seen in the embodiment of the disclosure that, the electronic device determines the application program running in foreground at first, then detects whether the application program running foreground is the preset application program or not, the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being higher than the preset falling probability and the falling probability corresponding to the preset application program being the probability that the electronic device falls when the preset application program runs in foreground, and finally, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program, outputs the prompting message. Thus it can be seen that the electronic device, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program of which the corresponding falling probability is higher than the preset falling probability in a using process, outputs the prompting message to prompt the user that a falling event is likely to occur when the present application program is used and prompt the user to regulate a manner of operating the present application program to prevent occurrence of the falling event, which is favorable for reducing the falling probability of the electronic device and prolonging service life of the electronic device.

    [0088] In addition, the electronic device receives the preset application set sent by the server and selects an application program suitable for the electronic device as the preset application program according to the preset application set. That is, the preset application program is determined by the server according to big data, which is favorable for improving determination comprehensiveness and accuracy of the preset application program. Moreover, determination through the server prevents a system resource of the electronic device from being occupied and is favorable for improving convenience and speed for determination of the preset application program.

    [0089] Moreover, when the operating frequency for the touch screen in the preset time is higher than the preset frequency threshold value, the electronic device outputs the prompting message, which is favorable for improving falling prompting timeliness and accuracy.

Thus it can be seen that the electronic device, when it is detected that the application program running in foreground is the preset application program of which the corresponding falling probability is higher than the preset falling probability in a using process, outputs the prompting message to prompt the user that a falling event is likely to occur when the present application program is used and prompt the user to regulate a manner of operating the present application program to prevent occurrence of the falling event, which is favorable for reducing the falling probability of the electronic device and prolonging service life of the electronic device.
