Realme planning to switch back to Oppo's ColorOS? Company asks users for their OS preference
It isn’t hidden that Realme, even after parting ways with Oppo, continues to enjoy Oppo’s developments when it comes to software.
Realme UI is nothing but a renamed ColorOS with a couple of features clipped off. ColorOS is a step ahead, now that they have a totally revamped ColorOS 11 in place.
OnePlus surprised everyone by adopting ColorOS for its devices in China and may surprise even more with speculations on the Android 12 update.
Looks like ColorOS doesn’t wish to limit itself to Oppo and OnePlus devices only. From what it appears, Oppo has bigger plans.
A survey that is being conducted in the Realme community may raise the eyebrows of the users.
This survey is not about a newly launched device but instead asks users to vote for something they quite enjoyed back in the days.
Realme wants users to know if they’d like to have ColorOS running on Realme devices instead of Realme UI.
These questions suggest that the company is considering the possibility.
– Have you ever tried ColorOS (not realme UI)?
– How do you see realme UI when compared to ColorOS?
– If realme smartphones were to ship with ColorOS (instead of realme UI) would this affect your purchase decision?
– If realme smartphones were to ship with ColorOS, what OS name would you like to see in the settings better?
Realme started its journey with ColorOS 5 on its maiden device Realme 1. It wasn’t something that users enjoyed and then looking at how people reacted to the software, Realme introduced its own skin.
This was long-awaited but turned out, Realme UI was exactly the same as Oppo’s ColorOS just that it now had a different name.
The launch of ColorOS 11 marked a big change in the software as it came close to stock Android but with a ton of features.
Users were expecting all these features and upgrades to make it to Realme UI 2.0 but sadly, not all of them were made available by Realme.
And now, Realme is finally considering having ColorOS back on Realme devices. I will leave this up to you guys to decide.
Will you be happy to have ColorOS running on your Realme devices? Or are you good with the limited features that Realme UI offers? After all, both skins are almost the same.
