ColorOS is a custom mobile skin created by OPPO and based on the Android operating system. The latest version of ColorOS – ColorOS 11 comes with some big changes and better features than its predecessor.

The ColorOS 11, gives a number new of customization, and more importantly, the dark mode also got a few new tweaks. Additionally, it brings the new native gamer mode, three-finger translation, and more.

Talking about Huawei’s HarmonyOS 2 operating system,  designed and developed by Huawei and doesn’t base on Android. This new OS comes with a bunch of new features and also provides a better dark mode over the EMUI 11.

Since we’re are comparing HarmonyOS 2 features with different UIs, let’s now move towards a direct head-on comparison against ColorOS 11.

HarmonyOS 2 vs ColorOS 11 dark mode comparison is based on the following user interface element and system apps:

  1. Quick Settings
  2. Settings Menu – Menu icons and view
  3. Apps – Clock, Gallery, and Dial

Let’s check what we’ve found in this comparison:

ColorOS 11:

The biggest new tweak is the ability for you to determine what kind of dark mode you want. You can choose between three options: Enhanced, Medium, and Gentle.

But honestly, the user interface of the ColorOS looks so much boring and the icons are hard to find on the quick settings panel.

To be mentioned, the Settings menu items also fade away easily in the dark mode, or either they’ll make your eyes hurt with the bright text color.

Compared to all of the phones that we put in the comparison against the HarmonyOS 2, the ColorOS 11 has one of the most unfavored dark mode.

HarmonyOS 2.0:

HarmonyOS 2 dark mode features surpass all of our expectations and the improvement that it brings over its predecessor, as well as ColorOS 11, makes it more natural and easy to operate in the dark mode.

Therefore, the new Control Panel and the Settings menu easily stands out even in the lowest amount of brightness.
