With the advent of 5g era, mobile phone manufacturers are gradually making efforts to ride the storm in the new era. Vivo is one of the “movers”. In 2020, vivo will quickly complete the layout of 5g mobile phones with 2000-5000 yuan, and successfully won the fifth place in the world in terms of shipment volume in the third quarter of this year.

Such achievements are enough to illustrate the product power of vivo mobile phone. However, some netizens joked that vivo has everything but one system. Now the new system originos (also known as the original OS) of vivo mobile phone has come. Whether it can make vivo mobile phone reborn, let’s experience it together.
Origin OS: a new vivo system
1. Through to the real originos
The first time I came into contact with originos, it seemed that there was no change. The icon has been redrawn, but the desktop has some more small components that have never been seen before.

It wasn’t until I opened the deformer’s icon, and with a “poke and see” mentality, I clicked one by one… Only to find out that this might be the real original OS.

2. Card style breaks the grid
Through this special interface, you will find that it is completely different from the previous funtouchos desktop, giving people a card, magazine style. At first glance, it looks a little like the style of IOS 14 small components, and then it has the feeling of Windows Phone dynamic tile.

Most of the modules on the desktop are similar to this small component style. Even if you add an app to the desktop, it will feel a little bigger than the ordinary desktop app. The whole desktop is no longer limited to the standard grid segmentation of 4×6 and 5×7, but has flexible editing.
All apps are stored in drawers and can be opened by sliding on the desktop.

This kind of card layout may be a little uncomfortable at first, but when you cross back again, you will feel that the style you are familiar with is not so good-looking.
3. Atomic components keep you on the table
There is no doubt that in the new interface, group work is the essence. Officially, it is called atomic component, which is similar to Android and IOS components, but it is not a thing. Obviously, the atomic component has been elaborately designed by vivo, with unified style and exquisite animation. The animation of this lens component and music component can let me play for a day.

In addition to listing them on the desktop, some apps can be combined in pairs or adjusted in size to meet personalized needs. This seems to give people the feeling of arranging Windows Phone dynamic tiles.
In addition to the card style, the significance of groupware is that you can read important information on the desktop and complete the core operations without entering the app. For example, my favorite camera component, which contains all kinds of lenses, which point is OK; for example, the atomic Walkman, which integrates QQ music, Himalayan music, I music and other different streaming media, can directly control the music playing on the desktop.
Not only that, vivo connects the user’s flight, express and other information to the atomic notification component. It is easy to control the core information on the desktop and notification center without opening the corresponding app. And I like the function of adding alarm clock and schedule directly with voice on the desktop, which is very convenient.

Tracking express delivery, tracking flights, these functions in the past, but to Jovi assistant on the negative screen. Now vivo solidifies it to desktop, lock screen and notification center, allowing atomic notification aggregation and real-time alert of current trends. If these conveniences were buried deep in the past, now is the time for gold to shine.

In fact, similar component functions can be implemented by some Android widgets in the past, but the style is not uniform. Each app has its own tune, all on the desktop like a hybrid. Originos unifies their styles and keeps users on the desktop as much as possible through some practical functions.
Of course, the current atomic components are not perfect, mainly based on the official vivo. Third party apps can adjust the size, but they still can’t display the core information, let alone control. This part needs the cooperation of the third-party developers. How to impress and persuade these developers is a new problem for vivo.
Looking forward to more third-party apps supporting desktop information in the future
Let’s take a look at this unique deformer, which includes a complete set of custom buttons as well as shuttling back and forth between the traditional and new interfaces. We can quickly adjust the icon style, but also can adjust the wallpaper style.
4. Feel real in a virtual mobile phone
Vivo’s wallpaper also has a lot of mystery, which is officially called the original view window, hoping to connect the real world and the digital world through it. We see one by one, monochrome and blur are easy to understand, which is to change wallpaper into black and white, or add a layer of blur effect.

And the effect of the sky and time is different. Sky window combines weather app to display real weather effect on wallpaper. This practice of simulating real weather on desktop is like catching real environment into mobile phone. Moreover, the dynamic of sky window is very hidden, which will not interfere with the visual effect of desktop interaction.
Another time window, shrink the wallpaper into a magazine, and you will find that the shadow of the leaves on the wallpaper, as well as the color temperature, saturation and lightness will change at different times. Through this small detail to show the migration of time, feel the real environment changes.

Vivo integrates time and weather into the smartphone wallpaper, hoping to bring the real world experience to the smartphone in this way. Whenever you light up the screen, time can no longer be a string of numbers, but with traces of years; the weather can no longer be a picture, but a trace of breeze and drizzle.
In addition to these themes, vivo also adds behavioral wallpapers to let the wallpaper blossom slowly according to the user’s steps, so as to increase the contact between people and mobile phones.

All of these can deepen the interaction between people and mobile phones, make users and mobile phones closer, and gradually feel the beauty of the real world even on the cold machine.
5. Interactive customization to meet the needs of all users
Finally, let’s talk about the interaction of originos. Vivo adds a function called interaction pool in the system, through which you can set up the interaction modes you are familiar with, including 26 different combinations, covering almost all the interaction modes of mobile phone brands, and there is always one suitable for you.
I think the most interesting feature is the super card package function, which calls out a card like interface from the lower right corner of the interface, which covers multiple shortcut operations such as code scanning, payment, and bus code. In this way, the lock screen interface can be operated quickly without entering the mobile phone.

At the end:
Originos can be said to be a new beginning of vivo smartphone system, and the most perceptible aspect of this upgrade is the new UI and interaction design. If we say that MIUI 12 is adding to the system to make everything more comfortable; coloros 11 strengthens the custom attribute, so that everyone has his own customized; emui 11 emphasizes interconnection and breaks down the barriers between devices; then originos is trying to change the user’s habits, putting as many core operations as possible on the desktop, and bringing the user’s real feelings as much as possible. In this way, we can cultivate user habits and increase user stickiness.
Today’s vivo can be said to be the top mobile phone brand in the world. In order to take care of all users, it is naturally impossible to cancel the interface familiar to the original users at once. Therefore, we can see that the new interface of the new system is displayed in a form of traversal, which brings users different feelings.
It is not easy for all users to accept the new interface and interaction all at once. It can only be said that vivo has a good start, and it will take a long time to go. Moreover, it needs more efforts and the support of developers to improve the new system.
