OPPO Reno4 is arguably one of the company’s best value mid-range offerings in recent years. Other than sporting 48MP quad-cameras, Super AMOLED display, and Snapdragon 720G, it’s also a beautiful and attractive device to use. But as much as we want to praise the outer layer, the inner layer, which is the software, is equally as exciting as well. Running on ColorOS 7.2 customized Android skin, these are the best software features of the Reno4 that may just improve your overall mobile experience.
Make Everything One-Hand Friendly
Smartphones today are indeed big, bold, and large. While it does make the viewing activity a lot more immersive, it also makes one-hand usage a task. But thanks to the continuous development of software for better user experience, ColorOS 7.2 lets the phone adapt to you. The integrated “icon pull-down gesture” positions app icons at the bottom of the screen to make it reachable by the thumb.
Faster and Smoother Loading
Though not as deliberate as gestures, ColorOS can predict which apps you’re going to use next. Thanks to the AI APP Preloading algorithm, it preloads the apps that you mostly used for faster and smoother loading times.
Better Screen Recorder
OPPO brings screen recording to a whole new level with the new version of ColorOS. Aside from the fact that you can record the screen, internal audio, and microphone simultaneously, the front camera is also capable of recording when you want to do a live commentary and such.
Share Files Seamlessly
Tired of sharing files, videos, and photos through ad-ridden third-party apps? Yep, we’ve all been there. Thanks to OPPO Share, you can easily share even documents with fellow OPPO and non-OPPO devices. With file transfers done over WiFi P2P technology, your internet speed is unaffected during the process.
Get Exclusive Features with OPPO Lab
In the world of the mobile industry, it’s vital in market survival to be consistent in the pursuit of innovation. That’s why even if a new feature isn’t widely and officially available yet, OPPO gives its fanbase a chance to test them out to see if it’s something users would appreciate. Through OPPO Lab, an experimental platform giving users a glimpse of new and exciting features, you can activate two new functionalities: Decision Spinner, which creates a decision roulette for users who have a difficult time making up their minds, and the Lab Ringtone, which allows users to customize up to 10 ringtones and notification sounds to match their personality.
Sit Back and Relax
Your smartphone may be significant, especially during this pandemic, but your health takes top priority. To keep your daily usage in check, OPPO Relax App can help you calm your mind and even initiate breathing exercises with the built-in ambient sounds.
Make Your OPPO Phone More Attractive
Wonder how you can make an already attractive phone more attractive? Use built-in wallpapers! ColorOS 7.2 brings artistic visual wallpapers made by over 15 designers around the world, tailor-made for OPPO devices. What’s more, they’re free to download from the OPPO Theme Store. Fond of dynamic wallpapers? Fret not as Gravity Wallpaper provides you just that as it produces effects based on the direction of gravity of the phone.
Kill Loading Times with Bubbles
While multitasking with a phone proves to be tricky and gimmicky, ColorOS 7.2 has a way of making things a bit easier and faster. With Quick Return Bubble, you can respond to an email even in-game without seeing a loading screen. The same thing applies to your other favorite apps as well.
Get Smart and Private with AI-Enhanced Smart Sensor
With AI-Enhanced Smart Sensor, ColorOS 7.2 provides users four features in one go that pr. Made for privacy, Smart Spying Prevention automatically detects if someone is peeking at your phone. A notification will pop up and remain hidden to the stranger, so you can keep your business private.
If you want to use the device hands-free, you can do so with Smart AirControl that lets you scroll through feeds and even answer a call with just a wave or hand gestures.
With Smart Rotation, this pose-recognition algorithm can intelligently detect the orientation of your face and aligns the screen’s position accordingly, so you no longer have to keep adjusting while going through websites lying down.
Lastly, the Smart Always-on Display makes for smoother viewing, as it prevents the phone screen from dimming or shutting down while it’s in use, to allow for uninterrupted reading or viewing.
