After changing N phones, I chose ColorOS

How long does it take to activate King of Glory? My answer is 1 second, what about your answer?

Mobile phone manufacturers, from "hard" to "soft"

When it comes to iPhone 14 Pro, I think of Smart Island. When talking about Huawei Mate 50, Hongmeng Ecology is an unavoidable topic. But if we push the time back a few years, the focus of the iPhone 6 is the large-size screen, and the Huawei Mate 7 is the push-type fingerprint recognition. The characteristics of mobile phones have become "soft".

With the gradual improvement of hardware, from mobile phone manufacturers to ordinary consumers, there are higher requirements for "easy to use". Recently, my main phone is OPPO Find N2. The ColorOS 13 it is equipped with makes me feel the "volume" of mobile phone manufacturers.

The first is the "Second Open King" function mentioned above. ColorOS named it "Lightning Start", which not only skips the opening animation and loading interface of the game, but also does not increase power consumption because the software resides in the background.

ColorOS has also made a lot of optimizations for the gaming experience. For example, when the character is defeated, when the character returns to the desktop, the resurrection time will be displayed in the corner of the screen. These intimate details make the corners of my mouth rise every time I play the game.

Even if you don't play games, you can feel the intentions of ColorOS just by putting your phone on the table. After ordering takeaway, turn off the phone screen, guess what, is the rider taking the order now? ColorOS's off-screen can also view taxi information and music playback status, and double-click the music box to switch songs on the off-screen.

▲ Good-looking and easy-to-use screen display

The folding screen experience of ColorOS also gave me a lot of surprises. For example, when splitting the screen, I can slide the screenshot with three fingers on one side of the screen, and directly drag the screenshot to another app to share or save, make travel plans or share new year’s goods with friends. Needless to say, the practicality of this function .

In addition, the hovering space that can be entered by bending the OPPO Find N2 also allows me to regain the freshness of the folding screen when I first encountered it: without entering the app, I can continue watching videos and listening to music directly, and the folding operation becomes a switch. The folding screen uses the switch of the new scene.

The smooth experience of daily use, the intuitive operation design, coupled with the practicality of opening games in seconds, app flashback, scene-based display of the off-screen, and the surprise of the sidebar. The easy-to-use and detailed ColorOS makes me feel that the mobile phone system is really good.

Behind the experience is the accumulation of technology

Compared with iOS and HarmonyOS, the Android customization system "rolls" has an inherent disadvantage. After all, the bottom layer is not your own. If you want users to get a better system experience, what you need to do is not just change the icons and wallpapers. We also take ColorOS as an example to see how much accumulation is needed to make a good experience and customize the system.

Remember the aforementioned Lightning Boot feature? Behind this function stands the ColorOS supercomputing platform – OPPO's self-developed system-level computing center.

It has been more than ten years since the first Android mobile phone was released. Optimizing mobile phones has long been an engineering method. If you want to continue to optimize the performance and power consumption of mobile phones, you must find ways to solve the problem from a deeper level.

In order to solve the power consumption problem, ColorOS engineers conducted academic cooperation with universities to find the "golden efficiency ratio" between performance, power consumption and temperature control, and established a computing power model to allocate the performance, storage, and AI computing power.

For example, when we play a large-scale mobile game, simply and rudely increasing the CPU frequency can naturally start quickly, but at the same time it will cause serious heating of the mobile phone, and resource calls that take care of one and lose the other will only reduce system fluency.

What the supercomputing platform does is to accurately find the best performance points of performance, power consumption and heat generation in each scene, and make more precise scheduling of every operation of the system, which is how the smooth ColorOS is now.

This is like using 100 yuan to choose a New Year’s gift among 3 products. The smart butler of the supercomputing platform can make full use of the 100 yuan to let ColorOS satisfy all children’s New Year’s wishes.

Of course, assigning performance to each scene is only the foundation of the supercomputing platform. It also has to fight against the "first come, first served" memory allocation mechanism of the Android platform to ensure that when urgent tasks enter, apps with higher priority can run smoothly. , to improve memory recovery efficiency.

In this way, mobile phones with low running memory can also ensure more app retention. There will be no reply message, and the game will be reloaded after opening the game.

Although the supercomputing platform was released along with ColorOS 13 in August this year, the research and development of the supercomputing platform dates back to 3 years ago. At that time, OPPO invested a large number of chip experts, and after millions of times of data fitting and simulation , Only then has the computing power model of today's vertical integration from the scene to the hardware been established. Achieved a balance of high performance and low power consumption.

Maybe you have only used a certain brand of mobile phone and haven't done much comparison, but today's ColorOS has quietly won the title of the smoothest mobile phone UI.

Although today's ColorOS supercomputing platform is enough to make me feel a smooth system, this is not its full strength. In the future, the ColorOS supercomputing platform will continue to optimize the fluency of the mobile phone system by using super-performance storage compression technology, cloud compilation technology, and AI-based smart technology. What surprises will ColorOS bring us then?

If the supercomputing platform is the basis for ColorOS to ensure user experience, then various humanized functions are the ingenuity of ColorOS.

When using OPPO Find N2, there is another function that surprised me. When the table is not flat enough and you are worried about scratching the screen, you can turn the phone over and watch movies like a tent.

So many manufacturers are making folding screens, why can OPPO think of hovering space and tent mode?

When I read OPPO's past interviews, I saw an interesting point of view. ColorOS said, "We pursue the ultimate experience and user orientation. Being a human being is not for eyeballs, but to improve the product experience."

"Human factor" refers to all factors related to people. We can simply understand that the experience of ColorOS is all human-centered-I want to play games without freezing, rather than running smoothly at 120 frames. I want to take good-looking photos, not 100 million pixels. User experience, not data.

In order to study user experience, ColorOS has established a human factors research laboratory to build an objective and subjective measurement system through eye movement, physiological, and brain wave data measurements, so as to guide technology, formulate standards, and optimize products.

A system that considers real users' feelings in terms of system fluency will naturally be human-centered in terms of functions.

Someone was reported by a teammate for cutting out of the game and replying to the message? The countdown to death in the small window can reduce some conflicts; when someone needs a temporary record in a meeting? The scene recognition on the sidebar can get twice the result with half the effort; some people always worry about whether the takeaway will arrive? Then put a permanent notification on the screen to avoid frequently checking information.

From requirements to functions, instead of thinking about scenarios for functions.

ColorOS, which is user-centered and constantly improving its technology, actually has the most important part, that is, its partners.

If your company does business with OPPO, you must be impressed by its excellent reputation. When it comes to ColorOS, it still maintains long-term cooperation and investment with major partners.

As of today, OPPO has partnered with 70+ university scientific research institutes, established 15 scientific research joint innovation centers, and reached strategic partnerships with three major academic organizations, including the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Society, the China Computer Federation, and the Chinese Institute of Electronics. Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University, Nanjing University, and Peking University School of Medicine have established 4 major innovation funds and 320 scientific research projects, and are continuously providing technical support for ColorOS's basic platform, big data, AI capabilities, privacy and security.

Of course, without the active cooperation of major app developers, these innovative functions on ColorOS would not be as easy to use and practical as they are today.

ColorOS, what kind of future do you want to create?

In South America, there is a wetland called the Pantanal, where thousands of animals and plants live, with a total area of ​​more than 240,000 square kilometers. Maybe you have heard its name recently, it is most likely because OPPO named its smart cross-end system "Pantanal".

At the OPPO Future Technology Conference in 2019, OPPO founder Chen Mingyong said, "With the commercialization of 5G and the implementation of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Everything is just around the corner." Is this the future? No, he then changed the subject: "The Internet of Everything is just the foundation, and the integration of all things is the future."

The future where all things are integrated, the aquatic things of ColorOS 13, and the image of Pantanal originating from wetlands. It uses one of the most densely populated ecosystems of animals and plants in the world to name its own transend system. The openness and inclusiveness like water must be its key words.

The investment of scientific and technological capabilities, user-centered standards, and the cooperation of industry, academia and research, behind the smoothness and ease of use of ColorOS, are forming a technical barrier exclusive to ColorOS. This barrier is not built by OPPO itself, but by it. Created together with major partners and users.

Today's ColorOS, in-depth research on the bottom layer, opens up the Android ecology, and at the same time, works with ecological partners to lower the technical threshold. experience.

If you want to know the future of ColorOS, or the future of Android and software ecology, the answer is probably in the Pantanal wetlands 18,000 kilometers away.
