The appearance of the new user interface is one of the first-glance notable differences, according to developers. Developer Yaroslav Vorontsov said the new operating system "keeps the benefits of the previous versions: smooth animations and transitions." Vorontsov added "declining skeuomorphism and gradients was for the best." In addition, developer Andrey Gluschenko said he was "surprised by the total omission of the decorative elements." Overall, several developers noted the operating system was visually appealing, though not entirely unique from other operating systems on the market.
