1. Welcome Page
2. Safety Information
Read through the following information carefully. Failure to follow these safety
precautions could result in danger or illegal activities.
Safe Startup
Do not switch on the device when phone use is prohibited or when it may cause
interference or danger.
Traffic Safety First
Traffic safety is always of first importance. Use of phones and headphones while
driving a vehicle or riding a bicycle is not recommended and is illegal in some areas.
Obey and follow all related local laws.
Switching off Device at Gas Stations
Turn off your phone when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere, such
as gas stations or any other fueling area. Sparks in such areas could cause an
explosion or fire, resulting in serious injury or even death.
Switching off Device When On Board an Airplane
Wireless devices might be prohibited while in the air in some countries or regions.
Obey all related local laws and turn off your phone or switch to airplane mode.
Switching off Device near Medical Equipment
Hospitals or healthcare facilities might use radio-frequency-sensitive equipment.
Obey the relevant rules and regulations.
Switching off Device at Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn off your phone w
-
Radiation
Nearly every electronic device gives off radiation. Mobile phone use does not
increase the risk of getting brain cancer or other head tumors. Its effect in humans is
negligible.
Interference
Nearly every electronic device is susceptible to interference for external sources if
inadequately shielded or designed. As a result, your phone may cause interference
with other devices.
Temperature
Operate your phone in a place where the temperature is always between 10 to
45. Using or storing your phone in a too hot or too cold environment might
damage the battery, or even cause your phone to short-circuit or burn.
Proper Usage
Use your phone appropriately. Do not touch the antenna area unnecessarily when
the phone is turned on. Do not drop, disassemble, crush, bend, deform, puncture,
incinerate, or insert foreign objects into your phone.
Qualified Maintenance and Service
Never attempt to repair or modify the phone yourself. If your phone has any
hardware or software failure, do not use it until you take it to an authorized service
provider. Do not disassemble or root your phone yourself, otherwise the warranty
service will be terminated immediately.
Batteries, Chargers and other Accessories
Do not dismantle the built-in lithium-ion battery of your device. Use only the
batteries, chargers and other accessories authorized by OPPO, for third-party
accessories might cause damage or danger.
Waterproofness
Your device is not waterproof. Do not use your device in rain, or other wet locations.
Avoiding Hearing Damage
Permanent hearing loss may occur if the receiver, speakerphone, headphones, or
earpieces are used at high volume. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of
sound that may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. Set the volume
to a safe level to protect your hearing.
Avoiding Eyestrain
stimulation to your eyesight. Long-term viewing of your phone in normal or darker
environments will damage your eyesight. When watching video or reading text on
your phone, avoid prolonged use, take breaks and turn on eye protection mode to
prevent eyestrain.
Glass Parts
glass. This glass could break if your phone is dropped on a hard surface or receives a
substantial impact. Do not attempt to touch or clean the broken glass. Stop using
your phone until the glass is replaced by an authorized service provider.
Connecting to Other Devices
Before connecting to other devices, carefully read the user manual for more detailed,
accurate and safety instructions. Do not connect to incompatible products.
Being Aware of Laser Safety
If your phone supports laser focusing, carefully read the user manual before using
it. Failure to follow instructions might lead to harmful radiation exposure. To prevent
direct exposure to laser beam, do not attempt to
avoid keeping close contact with laser light.
3. Get started
3.1. Quick look
3.1.1. ColorOS 5.1 Features
ColorOS 5.1 New Features
With ColorOS 5.1, noticeably the graphics and colors are more vivid and crisp. Even
with its design, it hasn't lost touch of its fundamental purpose: use with ease and
time, calls, and messages even when the screen is off. Calculator has been more
efficient with its added functions for more conversions.You can fix your volume
more layers to prevent digital theft from getting your personal data.
Brand-new visual design
relaxing. The App icon has a brand new makeover having circle shapes and
Control Center has green color with white background which is soothing to the
eyes. To have a cleaner and minimalist setting, System Apps sort and group
settings like Call, Contacts, Messages, Phone Managers and others into one
location.
Photo album on Smart Assistant
Smart Assistant. We all know that Smart Assistant is your happy helper and
intuitively knows what you want and one of those is memories. It will show photo
albums of pictures that matter to you.
Enjoy the new features of Calculator
The new Calculator app not only combines the standard and scientific calculators
but added useful functions which will come handy in time.
Share your internet connection through Wi-Fi Tethering
Wi-Fi Tethering. This makes your phone as a Wi-Fi router which basically has the
same functionality to that of a traditional router which enables the sharing of
internet to other Wi-Fi devices.
Make use of the Screen Clock
Screen Clock. If you want to know who called you or messaged you without
opening the screen, then you would love the Screen Clock function. You can set
display time and reminders like missed calls, unread SMS, unread Wechat, and QQ
messages even when the screen is off.
Fixed your volume button to a specific ringer
Default Volume Button Adjustment. Sometimes you wanted to manage the
volume of the ringtone using the physical buttons but the one that gets adjusted is
the music volume. You can now choose the physical buttons to either adjust for
the Ringtone Volume or Media volume only.
Prevent theft by using Privacy Passcode
Privacy Passcode. We all know how some apps are snooping to get your personal
data stored on the phone. Privacy Passcode toughens your privacy through series
of encryption methods and a secret question that you can customize. When this is
turned on, the validation will be used for all privacy features such as App
Encryption and Private Safe.
Add Marker Pen to highlight when you take and edit a screenshot
Add Marker Pen
long screenshots of your conversations on any messenger, or the screenshot of a
full web page, or screenshot of some long pages in apps. You can edit the
screenshots directly on the Photos app using a set of professional editing tools.
Also, a marker pen has been added to highlight words, draw, and personalized the
OPPO ID on settings
An added feature on your setting page is your OPPO ID which can be used to
access apps such as OPPO Cloud, App Store, and Theme store.
New camera features for taking photos an selfies
More new stickers. There are new stickers that you can choose from. Your pictures
will definitely be cooler, cuter, and funnier. To use stickers to decorate your photo,
