LewaOS make your Android easier and more beautiful
Our previous survey on alternative firmware for the Android, use your keen interest, so we decided to continue research in this area, and we want to introduce you to yet another product of the collective creativity of Chinese developers.
Lewatek Chinese company was founded in April 2011 in order to unite under his development team working on a modification of software for mobile phones based on the platform Android. Information may be requested in English (not to mention Russian) about their work and success is not easy to find, which, however, did not prevent out-of-their pen firmware successfully spread across the globe. Currently LewaOS used by several leading Chinese manufacturers of the first tier, such as Huawei or ZTX, and, of course, many enthusiasts around the world.
By way of introduction I want to note that all existing now build LewaOS c support for Russian language are the product of the work of independent developers, each of which can still make changes to the original version of the OS. Therefore, some of the features mentioned in this review, you may not be, or vice versa.
In terms of external design LewaOS very similar to that considered by us earlier MIUI. Similarly, the external design is given a lot of attention, and in that sense you really enjoy working with this system. Supports a number of desktops, widgets, shortcuts in the folder organization, beautiful animation.
You can at any time change the design of the system, taking advantage of one of the themes that are freely available for download from the built-in directory. However, the degree of customization is somewhat less deep than MIUI. Here in the topics included only wallpaper, icons, and only some of the lock screen, and all other elements remain unchanged.
One of the first features that you will be pleased with – a functional lock screen, able to display the number of new sms and missed calls. Directly from the screen, you can open the shutter with notices and switches, so in order to turn the wi-fi or GPS does not even need to unlock the phone. The status bar can display the current data rate and the amount of data downloaded, which is useful for limited quota.

Applications are organized into special menu, which appears when you swipe upwards on any desktop. This menu will be more familiar to users Android, than the way in organizing programs, which is used in MIUI, where all the icons are located directly on the desktop.
But the main strength of this firmware is to organize the work with two SIM cards. You can conveniently adjust the rules for the use of each SIM cards, and when you dial to select one movement from what number to make a call. This is a really well thought-out and easy system, which has no analogues in yet other firmware. By the way, the caller’s photo is displayed on the screen, it just looks cool.
Among other differences, Lewa OS from MIUI can be noted that there remained more elements from the native Android. So, there is already store Google Play, working successfully all the programs and services from Google, do not make dances with a tambourine for the correct behavior of the GPS and voice search. Here are all present and works out of the box.
