Vernees Vos. Thor E comes with VOS, slightly optimized operating system based on Android 7.0. No extra apps so it is purer and cleaner. New features like custom quick settings, notification direct reply, split-screen mode and quick switch between recent apps are all available. It delivers smooth operation experience with great power efficiency. VOS is optimized on system level, such as dual SIM management, power allocation and storage management. It replaces MTK’s unfriendly UI with a more gorgeous one which is very close to the original Google OS. Thanks to those optimization, Thor E’s battery life has reached a new height.
