Brand New Icon Design
Honestly, so many Android users use their devices without any customization. But there is a select league of enthusiastic ladies and gents that will change many parts of the UI if it doesn’t look elegant. Case in point is the icons. What can we say, we are guilty of that as well!
However, the new icon pack in XOS 5 Cheetah brings a fresh, gorgeous and more elegant visual representation. The icon designs contain aesthetics that allow every detail to be more attractive. Maybe you won’t need to download third party launchers now since these are already gorgeous.
AI for video chats
Video calling is becoming more ubiquitous in recent times. Evidently, smartphones have been the protagonists in this exponential rise. Huge names like WhatsApp Inc also launched video calling introducing many people to video calling.
However, there has always been an issue of trying to look good in the video call since most of the times the video reaching the other end of the call has been compressed. With the new XOS 5 Cheetah, there is no need to make up. It incorporates AI beauty that will make you shine in your video call chats, looking younger, brighter and fresher.

I find it very heartbreaking running to unlock my phone when I hear the notification tone only to find its nothing important, and I am not alone. These intelligent voice notifications are a great addition. They are currently available in English, French and Hindi languages.
Intelligent notification management
There are those notifications that we never open but always swipe away one by one to reduce the clutter. However, the new XOS Cheetah has used some machine learning to know exactly what notifications you don’t want to see often and stack them away.
The intelligent notification management in XOS 5 Cheetah recognizes and sorts spam or undesired message notifications and groups them into a single category that can be blocked.

It is related to Eye Care mode, just a smarter version of Eye care mode.
Smart Photo cleanup

Some tend to be overexposed, dark, blurry and identical. XOS 5 Cheetah categorizes photos into the dark, blurry and similar pics to enable you to delete and keep only the best versions of your memories. This is a great way to save the much-needed space on your phone.

This will enable you easily switch the SIM card you want to use for data connections without digging up the feature in settings. Many people use multiple lines depending on who is giving more data at a particular time. In case you need to switch, it doesn’t have to be painful anymore with XOS 5.
You might be thinking. What if there are lots of creepy apps that might be listening to your conversations by recording them? Well, the new XOS will help you curb the paranoia. When an app is using the microphone and you are not aware, XOS 5.0 will notify you with a pop-up message “XXX App is recording”, thus making sure you are in control of all recording processes.
