Hello ColorOS SuperFans!

INTRODUCTION

Oppo F17 Pro comes with ColorOS 7.2 pre-installed. Most of us are using ColorOS 7 on our devices so the ColorOS 7.2 update will look minor. But still, it has some new features worth mentioning. In this article, I will be showing full changelog of ColorOS 7.2.

OPPO LAB FEATURES

Oppo Lab includes 10 experiments in form of 10 features. To view all the experiments in detail, read my article: I've included only new features here.

Lab ringtone feature to customise the ringtone.

CHANGES IN IN-BUILT APPS

First thing you will notice is that Oppo Contacts, Phone and Messages apps are replaced by Google Contacts, Phone and Messages.

Disadvantages
Old Oppo ColorOS Contacts, Phone and Messages apps were rich in features. While new Google apps do not have so many features at present.

Advantages
As Google apps are available in Play Store, there are updated regularly. Google is also adding many new features gradually. For example, Messages app will receive SMS scheduling feature soon.
Initially, I missed those old apps but after using the new apps for sometime, I'm gradually liking them.

App Market and Game Centre apps are gone.

They were used for apps and games installation respectively. I did not use them much as I download apps from Play Store. If you did not use them, they were still using phone storage and RAM and occasional notifications would come. You could not remove both these apps in any ways. So in my opinion, I will not miss both these apps and this is a good step in going towards stock Android experience.

When you swipe to the right on the home-screen, you get Smart Assistant in ColorOS 7. It is replaced by Google Assistant in ColorOS 7.2. Smart Assistant can be disabled from the Settings but Google Assistant cannot be disabled in ColorOS 7.2. I do not use this feature and I cannot hide Google Assistant also.

CAMERA APPLICATION

Another useful feature added in the camera application is two new filters in Portrait photo mode.

First one is AI colour portrait filter which makes the background black & white so that the subject (which remains in colour) pops up.

Examples

Second is night flare portrait filter which comes in handy while taking portrait photos in night. This filter makes the background light sources blurry and circular. This also makes the subject pop out. This filter is my favourite new feature in ColorOS 7.2.

SETTINGS APPLICATION CHANGES

ColorOS 7.2 adds Super Power Saving mode. Upon activation, you can only use 6 applications. You can select apps of your choice obviously. So when your battery is very low, this super power saving mode can save the battery to the max.

In "Gestures & Motions", you get two new features: Air Gestures and flip to mute incoming calls. With the Air Gestures feature, you can take a call without touching your mobile by flicking your hand upwards.

BEHIND THE SCENES IMPROVEMENTS

ColorOS 7.2 introduces AI preloading and anti fragmentation. They improve app launch speed and optimise RAM usage. So that you can launch apps faster and overall experience remains smoother.

CONCLUSION

I have created a YouTube video titled "Oppo Lab app in ColorOS 7.2 showing new features | Ft. Oppo F17 Pro (in Hindi)". Please watch it here.


As we are awaiting ColorOS 11, some of its features trickled down to ColorOS 7.2. Overall, I very much liked this update.
