Old Story continues…

The majority of the OEM’s are known by its name of custom skins. For example, OnePlus is known for Oxygen OS, while OPPO is known by Color OS. OPPO has been improving Color OS in each, and every update. From a heavy skin to one of the most responding skin out there. Most of the users including me love to use Stock Android, but the new Color OS also gives a similar feel of Stock Android with extra features like screen recording, app lock, call recording, and many more. The good news is that OPPO has started the first batch of ColorOS 7 trial update for early access users of R15 Pro.

The post also includes the link for applying for the ColorOS 7 beta or trail update version CPH1831EX_11.F.12.
