As computing technology advances, our understanding of what makes a computer perform at its best is changing. It used to be all about how fast a device could run, but now, the smoothness and stability of its operation are just as important. This means a device must work well in every situation to give users a truly efficient experience. OPPO, with its ColorOS system, has focused on this approach for ten years, aiming to create a balance between speed, stability, and fluidity in its software.
‘Visible’ and ‘invisible’ Smoothness
OPPO introduced a concept called “visible” and “invisible” smoothness with the launch of UI First in 2020. This technology improved how apps run by managing system resources more effectively, reducing lag and enhancing user experience. Yet, as 5G and high-data applications became more common, OPPO saw the need to also focus on less noticeable aspects of smoothness. This led to improvements in how ColorOS manages device temperature, battery life, and app running in the background, ensuring a seamless experience even with numerous apps open.
ColorOS has continuously evolved, incorporating technologies like memory compression and breakpoint reading to optimize performance. With ColorOS 14, OPPO has further refined these capabilities, allowing phones to handle many applications simultaneously without sacrificing performance.
More human, More Consistent
OPPO’s pursuit of a smoother user experience goes beyond technical optimizations. Recognizing that speed isn’t everything, the company has introduced slower, more natural animations and adjustments to how the system responds to user interactions, based on insights from Human Factors Analysis. This approach takes into account the limits of human perception to ensure changes in the interface are noticeable without being unnecessarily fast.
Embracing the Possibilities of AI-Generated Content
Looking ahead, OPPO is preparing for the challenges of AI-generated content, which demands more from a phone’s hardware. ColorOS 14’s Trinity Engine is designed to manage these demands by optimizing how the phone uses memory, processes data, and conserves battery life. These efforts reflect OPPO’s commitment to providing a user experience that is not just about speed, but about creating a harmonious interaction between the user and their device.
The launch of the Reno11 series with ColorOS 14 exemplifies OPPO’s dedication to delivering a smooth and stable experience, making these devices an exciting option for users seeking the latest in smartphone technology.
The latest Reno11 series is now on sale at OPPO branded stores nationwide and online through the OPPO Kenya website, as well as e-commerce platforms like Jumia and Kilimall. The Reno11 5G is priced at an RRP of KES 67,999, while the Reno11 Pro 5G is available at an RRP of KES 85,999.
