Top 5 Features of OriginOS

OriginOS is no vanilla Android but it has come up with a new design, smoothness, and convenience. Let’s dig into some of the features of OriginOS. 

  1. Klotski Grid: Based on a Japanese Puzzle Game, Vivo has adopted the Klotski Grid design for its home screen. This design and its functionality remind us of either iOS 14 or windows 10 start panel. 
  2. Nano Alert: Without opening the whole app, you can interact with the app and use its features with just the app icon. You can interact as well as get notifications within it.
  3. Navigation Gestures: Vivo has now 26 combinations of navigation gestures with full customization available to the users. You can choose what to happen with a swipe up from left, center, or right and even from the edge.
  4. Parallel World
