OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro Oxygen OS 11



OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro Oxygen OS 11


One plus is currently in the process of doing a complete UI revamp with oxygen OS 11. Which is based off OS 11 and that isn't official yet in fact just last week. One plus rolled out a developer preview for existing oneplus8 and one plus 8 pro. Users they asked them to try it out see what they think for themselves, because they said they've been working on something new refreshing and they appreciate feedback. Which is great I love when companies do that, but as always when you decide to introduce change especially? When it comes to the core of the user experience, which in this case is the operating system the way, how the user interacts with the os when it comes to app navigation and of course going through settings and just the general usage. You’re obviously going to generate two types of audience, the first group you know they would love this new refreshing look. They'll be like hey it’s something new we like it and there's gonna be other side like that's probably gonna go. Why change something that's already working pretty well if it isn’t broke don't fix it right. I’m going to walk you through what’s new with oxygen OS 11. Walk you through some of the new changes they’ve done to the ui and what you can expect when it officially gets rolled out to your existing.


One plus device now I also have to mention that there are certain resemblances to another operating system that shall remain unknown. Actually I will quickly mention that later. So if you have an existing one plus 8 or 8 pro smartphone install it at your own risk personally I’d stick away from it. Because you want to make sure that your daily driver is just running fine you don't want to run to any issues so just a word of caution. Okay so one of the features that they've added to oxygen OS 11 is the ability to enable ambient display all day long which naturally drains your battery significantly and they've added a handful of cool new clock styles. My personal favorite is inside it actually shows how many times you've unlocked your phone and it leaves a groove on the bar so the more you use your smartphone that clock widget starts moving downwards toward that red area and that's just a gentle reminder saying that you've used your smartphone for way too long you might want to cut back on that a little bit. Which I’m slowly trying to do, so yeah I will say that some of the other clock styles are similar to what you'll find on Samsung devices and you'll probably hear me say that over and over again as.


I’m walking you through the new exchange the home screen looks familiar to oxygen os 10 except for the icons they've made it a bit more minimal and consistent with the circular shape across the board the notification shade has been updated as well. They've categorized conversations and your other app notifications which are pretty neat. It's also slightly larger making it easier to adjust screen brightness with just one hand you'll also notice that OS 11 shows the day and date in both condensed and the expanded mode. Which I like in case you haven't noticed one plus has shifted their company logo and color scheme a few months ago with anew font choice and a new color palette they've brought that change to the operating system as well. The new font is called one plus sans so it's replacing the iconic slate font that we're used to and I like it perhaps the biggest change. You'll encounter is when you hop into settings as you can see the title is pretty bold and big and this is something that you'll start to notice with other primary apps like messages and dialer and things like that.


They've shifted the tabs to adjust your basic settings downwards so that you can easily reach them with one hand every icon feature has an outline which looks pretty sweet and yes there are certain resemblances to Samsung’s one UI in terms of grouping them but I don't mind it as long as it works. One plus primary applications like messenger phone dialer and gallery have received a slight change as well So if you look at the dialer the num-pad is condensed and the spacing is even plus, It's easier to reach versus oxygen os 10. Where it just seems scattered across the gallery app is well organized. It's grouped by dates chronologically and it shows the location as well I prefer this over Google’s photos to be honest, because the new update for that app killed the ease of use for me personally. I also really like the new weather app and this is something that. I do see myself using constantly over the Google weather app. Because there's hourly forecast daily forecast and it's all organized really well not to mention with every new operating system. You are going to get a few new wallpapers. I personally like the one that I have right over here it. Certainly matches the aura glow on the one plus 8 definitely overall I really like. What one plus has done with OS 11? This isn't the final build yet in fact they still have a lot more to port from the official OS 11 build that Google is currently working on.


So I’m excited to see what the future one plus devices are especially with the new os update and the way how phones are going to be shaping in the next few years. Because while stock android is great. It's clean and minimal think. It's time for change and I think one plus did something bold people might not like it that’s completely fine. But it might take a little while to get used to now there is one thing that I do have to point out and it's a little glitch that I noticed on my one plus 8. So if I pull up the application drawer it actually doesn't go all in towards the edges as you can see, There’s quite a little bit of gap or it doesn't fully expand on edge to edge. I’m not sure if that's a glitch or if that's done on purpose but that is just a little bit odd hopefully the final build can address and fix that issue and lastly I really wish and this is just something that. I’ve been that has been on my wish list for a really long time you see with every android device. There are these really cool developers working on Google apks Google camera mod apks for, those phones to significantly improve the camera experience or the camera quality or the picture quality coming out of those phones. I’ve done a video on that separately. In fact I’ll leave a link down below or you can check it out right over here. It's a huge it makes a huge difference when it comes to image processing, if one plus can only work with those developers to integrate that into their native camera app. I think that would make that would totally change the Smartphone camera industry as a whole, because right now the cameras on one plus phones they’re great I mean the one plus 8 pro has a pretty good camera, but one plus eight is not that great.
