OxygenOS 12 Vs ColorOS 12 Software Comparison: Key features

1. Lock screen

The first thing you’ll notice when you use the phone for the first time is the lock screen. Even though you must have heard that the wallpapers and texts in the OxygenOS and ColorOS 12 have differences, but they are both are almost similar. Also, both phones have similar always-on display features. However, you’ll get more customisation options in ColorOS 12 than in OxygenOS. Furthermore, the lock screen keypad in the OxygenOS is shifted in the middle, whereas in the ColorOS 12, it’s still at the bottom.

2. Home screen

Now, looking at the home screen, you’ll notice that both the software have different icons. ColorOS 12 has square-shaped icons, and OxygenOS has rounded icons. However, you can change the icons according to your preferences. In addition, home settings are almost similar in both phones. The feature I loved the most was the icon pull-down on both phones. 

3. Notification & Shade control centre

The most helpful feature many of us use is the notification and shade control centre. You’ll have the same icons and the slider in OxygenOS, whereas the ColorOS 12 comes with the material You theme and slider buttons. In addition, the ColorOS 12 features exclusive features like a multi-screen connect where you can share a file with your laptop or PC and control the phone with the other device.

4. Hide & lock

ColorOS execute features like hiding apps and private safe very well. However, exactly the same features are now available in OxygenOS.

5. Dark mode

The dark mode in both OS is almost similar. However, you’ll see the three levels and the same you can enable too. 

Special features

Several features are the same in both phones, and a few of them are mentioned below:

  • Screen-off Gesture
  • Screenshot Gesture
  • Raise to wake
  • Flip to mute
  • Lift to hear to answer the call
  • Digital wellbeing
  • Split screen
  • Quick launch

In addition to this, there are a few different features too that are only present in ColorOS. Few features like Assistive ball, smart sidebar, kid space, and simple mode are some of the exclusive features of ColorOS.

Final thoughts

With helpful upgrades like a screen recorder and reading mode, Oxygen OS seems to be more tailored toward supporters of stock Android, as this is mentioned in the comparison above. However, better aesthetics and exclusive features are seen in the ColorOS. Furthermore, OnePlus is very top tech player in providing updates to its users. Recently OxygenOS 13 has also been released, and with that, the release of updates is becoming more frequent, and Color OS must have to keep up with the game.
