Recently, Vinsmart has officially launched the Vsmart Live – its latest mid-range smartphone. In addition to hardware upgrades such as fingerprint sensor under the screen, 3 camera system, 4000mAh battery … Vsmart Live is also upgraded to software when it is the first smartphone of Vsmart running VOS 2.0.
VOS is the "operating system" developed by Vsmart for its smartphone. In the first version, we evaluated VOS as being quite fuzzy and without its own identity because it was almost identical to the original Android in both interface and features. What has Vsmart changed in the second version?
Android 9 Pie
Saying is "operating system", but VOS nature is still a "cooked" version from Android. And with VOS 2, Vsmart upgraded the Android platform to the latest version of "9.0" Pie. VOS 2.0 inherits all the new features of Android 9 such as gesture navigation system, adaptive screen brightness (Adaptive Brightness), adaptive battery (Adaptive Battery), and time management (Digital Wellbeing). …

New icon set
Vsmart has designed a new icon set for VOS 2.0. Compared to the icon set of VOS 1.0, the new icon set looks brighter and is a mix of iOS and Android icons.

VOS 2.0 has built-in Dark Mode (dark interface) to help users soften their eyes when using the device in the dark. Users can activate this feature in the Screen Settings section.

Catching up with the game, Vsmart also equipped the VOS 2.0 gesture manipulation system, but the usage method is somewhat different from iPhone, Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei … Specifically, users will :
– Swipe from the bottom edge of the screen to return to Home.
– Swipe from the left edge of the screen to return (Back).
– Swipe from the right edge of the screen to multitask.
VOS 2.0 gestures are different from other NSX
Because these are relatively new and strange operations, users will need a time to get acquainted if they switch from other phones. If you don't like it, they can also choose to use the default navigation of Android 9 Pie or the traditional button via the Settings section.
Users can freely choose the type of navigation that suits them
Backup and restore data with VinID
In the Settings> Accounts section, users can find options to allow backup of phone data to VinID account and then recover when needed.

This feature of VOS 2.0 is quite similar to "Dual Apps" or "Second Space" of some other models. Specifically, users will be able to use two Facebook, Messenger or Zalo accounts on the same phone at the same time through application cloning.

At the present time, Vsmart Live is the only smartphone running VOS 2.0. For previous models such as Active 1 series and Joy 1 series, Vsmart said it will surely release updates to them, but has not announced a specific time.
