NO SHEEN IN THE SO CALLED COLOR OS
By pavan | 24 Feb 2019
the UI of oppo f9 pro is very substandard. there is nothing smart about this smart phone OS.1) there is no default option for sms messages. every time you have to click on the service from which u have to send the sms.2) there is no gallery. you have to download an external gallery. photos option given takes more steps to find videos etc...3) though u set a default service provider for calling again you will see both the sim services in dial pad from which you have to click on the one you want( the purpose of setting a default is lost here).4)there is no sms message lock option.any important message if by chance you delete thats it its gone.for this another external app. so pathetic.5)the worst part is the reboot option,silent mode,vibrate mode are very difficult to reach. u normally get all these options by long pressing the power button. but here there are different combinations for each and every option. what is smartness? they boast of some colorOS which lacks any sheen at all. such a complicated way they have made the OS.6)THE FAce recognition feature is very poor.many times it says the face doesnt match.7) the settings menu is very confusing and complicated. u cant understand the things in a simple and easy manner.8)contacts app is poor. doesnt pick photographs. have to download an external app.9) screen saver is forced on you if u use phone manually.there is no option to remove screen saver.u have to swipe up the screen saver every time and then enter the home screen 10) hotspot is turned off automatically when no device is connected. This is so stupid.there is no choice given to the user. In most cases there is arbitrary options and no choice given to the user to use his choice.11) when a notification/message of any app comes when u r on any screen u have to swipe it up to remove it but not to side which is very inconvenient and stupid.12) back ground apps move from side to side but not from up to down. because of this u can only see two app at a time and moreover the close option is not given at the top right hand corner.13) notifications of any apps cant be removed by just a swipe. u have to swipe it only from right to left and then again click on delete option.14) it looks like oppo has engaged some real "JUNK HEADS" in preparation of their OS. simple tasks all have been very deliberately complicated and made difficult. it is very irritating to use this phone. i will never buy any oppo product again in my life time. to sum up i did not find this smart phone smart in any way because of their stupidly created COLOR OS( there is no option to use android 8.1 and have to use color OS only), unnecessarily complicated navigations, very difficult approach to certain functions.i have decided never to buy an oppo phone in my life time again and advise as many people as possible against buying as well.
