This is the FUTURE of OnePlus Smartphones

by birtanpublished on November 4, 2020

So oneplus is currently in the process of doing a complete ui revamp with oxygen os 11 which is based off android 11 and that isn't official yet in fact just last week oneplus rolled out a developer preview for existing oneplus 8 and oneplus 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 why change

Something that's already working pretty well if it ain't broke don't fix it right so in this video 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 oneplus 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 in the video but overall i really like it so let's get started right after this the razer viper ultimate the lightest and fastest wireless mouse designed for esports with an accurate focus plus 20k dpi optical sensor razer hyper-speed wireless technology that is 25 faster than the competition all packed into lightweight body with optical mouse switches check it out below all right before i get any further in huge disclaimer this is something that

You have to keep in mind as you're watching this video this is a beta build it's not stable it's not the final version which is supposedly set to launch a rollout at the end of 2020 so if you have an existing oneplus 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 oxygenos 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 ux change 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 is 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 oneplus has shifted their company logo and color scheme a few months ago with a new font choice and a new color palette they've brought that change to the

Operating system as well the new font is called oneplus 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 oneplus primary applications like messenger phone dialer and gallery have received a slight change as well so if you look at the dialer the numpad 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 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 oneplus 8 definitely overall i really like what oneplus 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 android 11 build that google is currently working on so i'm excited to see what the future oneplus 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 i think it's time for change and and i think oneplus 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 oneplus 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 uh expand uh 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 uh and lastly i really wish and this is just something that i've been that has been on my wish list for a really really long time you see with every android device uh 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 huge it makes a huge difference when it comes to image processing if oneplus 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 oneplus phones they're great i mean the oneplus 8 pro has a pretty good camera but one plus eight is not that great so uh hopefully they can work on something like that again this is something that's on my wish list hopefully it works out maybe if not you know one can only dream but either way that's pretty much it uh this is just a quick short video on what

You can expect with oxygenos 11 if you are an existing oneplus owner if you have a oneplus 7 pro oneplus 7t or any other oneplus device are you excited for this update have you tried it uh as well if you have a oneplus 8.8 pro let me know in the comments down below i'm eber with hardware connects thank you so much for watching and i'll talk to you guys in the next one
