Vivo Origin OS Review – Meet The All-New Tile Design

Design & Appearance

Starting this Vivo Origin OS Review, in relation to the design of this new interface, and being one of the most important parts for users, the same CEO of Vivo commented in the official Origin OS presentation that a new studio and team were formed specialized for the creation of this project. This new interface is committed to a new design of desktop for the phones, thus having a new system of grids or widgets, being a bit similar to the one that can be seen in Apple’s iOS 14 launched this year. In short, it is a design that allows comfortable use of the interface of the different devices.

Design & Appearance

Having said that, and being one of the points in which Vivo decided to focus more on the presentation event, the company also decided to introduce a new way of displaying the weather information in this new user interface, since it decided to bet this time by a design with temperature lines, where colored lines will be displayed to facilitate the perception of the user when reading the current temperature of the place where they are. Also, the weather conditions at that specific moment are shown, and all thanks to a special animation that is made to attract the user’s attention.

As can be seen in this Vivo Origin OS Review, and in a nutshell, the new Origin OS is presented as an interface created to resemble as much as possible the current tastes of users around the world, thus counting a modern design and that allows great customization by the user. Due to this, the comparisons of this with the famous iOS will be many, since it is true that there are many similarities between it as well as others that are also on the market, but the quality of this new Vivo OS is top.

System Icons & Wallpapers

On the other hand, talking a little about the icons that they will have, users will have the possibility to organize the icons on the screen individually, as well as combine or group them in one of those widgets that are on the screen depending on the user tastes. Each of these may vary its format or position, and all due to the fact that some are oriented vertically and others horizontally, as well as their sizes can be modified. It is worth emphasizing that the user will be able to adjust these aspects to their liking whenever they want or need it.

In addition to that, there are also animated wallpapers that will be integrated with the passing of the months, in addition to which these will be modified with the behavior of the weather, as well as changes in the sun and moon. Also, Vivo has opted to use funds with flowers (with 7 types in total), so that the growth process of said flower can be seen until they bloom as a background. Likewise, the brand allows users to freely change the wallpaper, as well as the icons and the desktop style in a small window, thus having greater customization at all times.

User Experience

Before this new interface, the devices under the name of Vivo were working with the Funtouch OS, which, although at the time it was one of the best interfaces on the market, the hard reality is that times change, and updates to this were lagging a bit behind compared to those of other companies. Vivo, realizing this, decided to place itself far ahead of its competitors, and not by updating its interface, but by creating a new one. Ultimately, this was the best decision the company could make, both in the short and long term.

Due to the fact that the same company affirmed that this is a new digital world for its devices, it is not surprising to see that, in a magnificent way, not only was another style very different from the one already being used but also it was able to show the company’s new and great ideas and complete solutions to improve 100% the interaction that the user has with the interface based on the Android system.

The verdict

At this point, the new Origin OS is already more than official, thus being the new pride of the company. It is the successor to Funtouch OS, present until now in Vivo mobiles. In a few words, and seeing everything that it can offer us, this new interface has a better design, an interface with a faster operation and that turns out to be easier to use compared to its predecessors, all these aspects being what users were asking the manufacturer in various surveys, which were already answered, and in the best way possible.
