In Dark Mode, the OxygenOS 11 provides a good sense of viewing and has three color combinations of red, gray, and white in the UI elements. Coming to the Settings menu, the card, and menu layout also good but as you move inside any Settings menu, you’ll have to high-contrast colors.

To be mentioned, the colors sometimes feel very odd while operating throughout the software system. On the other hand, the software still allows users to change the theme’s accent color but the dark mode looks too terrible in accent colors.
