This is my personal take on how ZTE should handle their software to not only satisfy their customers but to also release speedy updates and increase sales. Mi Favor ui isn't bad but its not refined. Here's my take how ZTE can have their ui, a stock ui look system and mi favor at the same time long with other software improvements. I am no where near a coder or someone who knows the back ends to make these happen...but i flash roms all the time and know that majority of these features are possible. Please i insist on everyone imput your feedback and or ad on to this.
1. Must be the absolute smoothest software experience out there.
2.Want to partner up with action launcher creater to have action launcher baked into the phone for a VERY smooth non jittery experience similar to sony 6.0 concept build launcher. App launches must be seamless
3. Software must be HEAVILY CUSTOMIZABLE without having to root.
1. Able to use any icon pack from playstore, able to use any theme pack that's compatible with cyanogenmod if possible
2. Able to choose which emoji style (default is emojione) Options: stock android, twitter, facebook, ios, samsung etc.
3. Basic features that are in custom roms (customize buttons, able to disable power options in lock screen, etd)
4. Work with Chronus weather widget to have it seemingly built in. Or build a weather app that works like chronus (Any third party app that's partnered up to be built into the os MUST feel seamless, and receive updates along with the app.)
5. Camera app must FULLY be integrated with Android camera api v2. (Current camera ui is good) Must fully support raw support both front and back facing. (must be available on playstore to push software updates quicker)
6. A lot of resources must be put into the camera software. Must not lag AT All. Camera algorithms must minimize noise, and be better in low light than it currently is (take notes to Google Pixel camera algorithm). Must rival or be better then galaxy and iPhone.
7. Messaging app will be an identical clone to Google messenger but with even more added features.
A. Will have Google messenger feature of changing colors depending on the contact picture
B. Full theme support similar to gosms, chomp sms, etc
C. Integrated gihpy support to send gifs seamlessly similar to textra sms.
D. In app camera built into Google messenger will be modeled after the camera app made for the axon 7 phone. So you will quickly be able to take a picture from the messenger app like Google messenger but have more advance controls as to the barebones in app camera ui in Google messenger.
E. Fully supports dual sim, if two Sim cards are inserted, it will tell to you which Sim card it was sent by via nick name. You can nick name your Sim card in phone settings.
F. Quick access to photo gallery, or recent pictures like Google messenger.
G. quick reply exactly like Google messenger.
H. Change Bubble Style from squared to rounded edges
I. Change font size file
8. Contacts and phone app will be exactly Google contacts and phone app, so whenever they send out updates we will receive them too. If they don't have dual sim support for that then we will make an app identical to it that supports dual sim.
9. Stock browser is Google Chrome
10. All of Google essential apps will be installed: gmail, YouTube, Google plus, drive, Google play music, etc.
11. Best third party material design file manager out there, partner up with to optimize it for the phone and when they send updates out we get it via playstore.
12. Sound recorder, beautiful material design photo gallery that's primarily white or light color. But photo gallery must have high customization such as quickpic gallery. Also able to have special view for folders and subfolders in the folder. Also similar looking to Sony album app. WiFi transfer and Bluetooth transfer keen features. Gallery must have built in photo editing app that's seamless and a lot of tools for editing.
13. Every app that's on the phone that doesn't effect the core of its performance such as gallery, camera, sound recorder and etc must be able to be published on Google play store in order to deliver speedy updates without having to update the operating system.
14. Every non Google app must follow latest material design guidelines with ergonomics as a priority reducing learning curves for apps.
16. Security has to rival that of the black phone or even better. Built in VPN for secured browsing, extra security in messaging app.
17. Have SwiftKey modded edition pre-installed to have tons of free themes for their keyboard. All major languages for phone software and keyboard downloaded and ready to switch.
18. uninstall any app thats not a system app and wont affect performance
19. disable any app thats not a system app
20. Lock screen weather widgets
21. Double press power button to launch camera (camera app must launch FAST)
22. Built in app locker that uses nexus imprint with a combo of pin, pattern or password to lock any app on the phone from unauthorized access.
