1. Privacy Enhancements in ColorOS 11
The privacy and security features are getting enhanced with ColorOS 11. In recent times cybersecurity and privacy have been one of the major concerns in India a well as in other countries.
Some of Google’s security features included with ColorOS 11 specific features are the permission architecture, which basically enables the permission for one-time use and restricts the app from accessing the entire system’s data all the time. Another feature auto resets the file and network permissions for the apps you have not used for a while.
Another important privacy feature included in ColorOS 11 is its Private System, which actually creates multiple accounts with its own version of apps and data. You will need to log in to those accounts with different PINs and fingerprints. This is particularly important for people who need to protect their data and work from accidental damages from children using the phone or for completely separating the work environment from the personal environment.
2. Performance Optimization in ColorOS 11
Oppo with its ColorOS 11 promises a lot of optimizations. According to the usage report, memory utilization has seen improvement by a massive 45%. Oppo has also implemented its proprietary lag-reducing engine with Quantum Animation, which not only helps boost memory utilisation as stated above but also improves the response rate by 32% and frame rates by 17%.
3. FlexDrop in ColorOS 11 Enhances Multitasking
Floating windows are really great for multitasking, and ColorOS 11 has implemented the same with the name of FlexDrop. With this enhanced feature, you get the option of resizing your app windows to any size you like and keep them anywhere on the screen. Other apps opened afterwards will be working normally keeping the resized windows overlaid.
4. Super Power Saving Mode in ColorOS 11
ColorOS 11 comes with a built-in power saving mode which is very efficient in terms of extending the battery. Now the inclusion of the new Super Power Saving mode along with the customisable dark mode can be the next level thing if you really want to save the power for use.
This Super Power Saving Mode lets you choose the six apps which you need to run when you are running out of your battery life and it kills the background tasks immediately which helps save the power for longer than ever. So even when you are low on battery this feature can extend your usage time. Having a rough estimate about the practical situation can save power for upto 90 minutes even when your battery is around 6 to 7 per cent.
5. Battery Guard in ColorOS 11
Oppo has put some serious effort into power efficiency and battery life extension. With its Battery Guard feature, it claims to prolong the battery life of the phone. One quick example of it is its 80-20 rule which works when you put your phone for charging at night it does not get charged up quickly rather it gets charged up to 80% and the rest of 20% charging is done just before you wake up.
6. Customize Your Own Themes, Wallpapers and Ringtones
ColorOS packs in some of the most powerful tools in the section of customization where it lets you create your own themes, wallpapers, ringtones, icon sets and even unique always-on display patterns. It also allows choosing your own accent colours which will define your personality and taste.
All you need to do is to upload your favourite wallpaper and the AI automatically identifies the colour schemes and produces unique colour patterns and themes for you.
7. Instant Translations in ColorOS 11
ColorOS has introduced an advanced feature for quick translations of the on-screen content. All you need to do is to use the three-finger slide gesture and the system will automatically take a screenshot and trigger Google Translate to fetch a quick translation of the whole on-screen content.
With ColorOS 11, you’ll be able to get an instant translation of on-screen content via a three-finger gesture. Doing so will take a screenshot, pull up Google Translate, and translate the text. OPPO says it co-created this particular feature with Google, and it is a nifty way to get a translation without having to head into Translate. Google Translate is also integrated into the smart sidebar, making it easier to access.
