A method and a portable electronic apparatus for adaptively adjusting a playback effect of speakers are provided. The portable electronic apparatus includes a speaker enclosure volume adjusting device and a processor coupled to the speakers and the speaker enclosure volume adjusting device. In the method, the processor detects a usage demand for the portable electronic apparatus and accordingly determines an audio mode. Based on the determined audio mode, the processor selects and activates multiple speakers, and adjusts an enclosure volume of at least one of the activated speakers, so as to change an audio frequency range of the at least one speaker and an overall audio frequency range covered by the activated speakers. Finally, the processor plays an audio through the activated speakers.

A portable electronic device and a control method thereof are provided. The method is adapted to a portable electronic device including a rotatable element, a fixed element, a screen, a processor, a switch module with at least two protruding elements, and fixed points. The rotatable element is nearby the fixed element. The protruding elements and the fixed points are facing to each other and configured at one and the other of the rotatable element and the fixed element. The processor is coupled to the switch module and the screen. The method includes to display a default user interface corresponding to a default mode on the screen, to determine a corresponding mode according to all press states of each protruding element in the switch module by the processor when the rotatable element is rotated due to an external force applied thereto, and to display a corresponding user interface on the screen.


A portable electronic device includes a first body and a second body. The second body includes a processing unit, and a first touch panel, a second touch panel, a keyboard and at least one detecting module electrically connected to the processing unit, respectively. The keyboard is slidably disposed above the second touch panel, and the detecting module is adapted to detect a position of the keyboard. When the keyboard is located at a first position, the keyboard module covers the second touch panel, and the detecting module transmits a first signal to the processing unit so that the first touch panel is turned on. When the keyboard is located at a second position, the keyboard exposes the second touch panel, and the detecting module transmits a second signal to the processing unit so that the first touch panel is turned off. A touch panel controlling method of the portable electronic device is further provided.


A portable electronic apparatus and an operation method of the portable electronic apparatus are provided. The operation method includes: sensing an angle of a cover relative to a base. The operation method often includes sensing a posture of the cover. In the operation method, a virtual operating function of an optical sensor is enabled based on the angle and the posture.
