Vivo is a Chinese smartphone maker which serves as an independent brand under BBK Electronics which also own OnePlus and Oppo. Vivo has tweaked almost every aspect of a device may it be the processor or the camera or the display and literally has tonnes of options to choose from. Vivo offers smartphones with standard and rather unusual form factor with a single front & dual rear cameras while there are plenty of smartphones with triple rear module modules. Vivo also offers smartphones with dual display to a truly Full-Screen Display thanks to motorized pop-up camera module to a unique top module that protrudes out when needed and lot more.
Vivo is a hot commodity when it comes to Android 10 as it has listed not one but three phones for the beta program where all the three phones have already received respective beta versions of upcoming Android 10. Google released Android 10 officially on September 3 which means the stable update will be released soon although the timeline is still blurred & will only uncover when Vivo makes it official.
Android 10 was earlier known as Androdi Q where we didn’t knew what ‘Q’ stood for as there were plenty of options of desserts that begin with the letter ‘Q’ such as Quirks, Quince, Queen of Puddings, Quindim, Qottab, Quesito, Surabaya, or it could be called Queijadinha among others. However, Google officially declared the new OS as Android 10 and the numbering system is here to stay and will increment each year. Android 10 brings a number of features as such as it will support upcoming 5G networks while a system-wide dark mode will enable users to simply dim the light and the use app without any issues.

Also, it has added an action button so that if you receive a location or YouTube video link, you can simply check it out on a click of a button.
Gesture Navigation: Unlike previous Android OSes where either on-screen buttons or even thick sliders would enable navigation from apps to the Home screen or from one app to another, Android 10 adds a Gesture Navigation system that requires users to simply pull the edges of the display to go forward to backwards and slightly pull up to retreat to the Home screen and finally, swipe up to view all apps.
Dark Theme: The system-wide Dark Theme or Dark Mode adds to the already competent arsenal of features that Android 10 brings on-board.

You can remove the apps at any time by disconnecting Focus Mode when you are done with your work.

What to do if your phone is not eligible for Android 10?
If you went through this extensive list of Android 10 supported Vivo devices, it is very clear that even though a good chunk of smartphones are eligible and would receive the update until the end of 2020, there is a larger list that dictates the smartphones that aren’t eligible for the update. If your phone is one of them, you can actually leave it like that or try upgrading to a newer device using the buyback program or take part in an exchange program or even simply switch the device if you bought it from a mobile carrier or however it works that would allow you to upgrade to Android 10 with a newer phone in your hand but there’s more.
If you want to stick to your current phone and there could be a plethora of reasons why, you can actually try loading a custom ROM like LineageOS or RessurrectOS that will satisfy your need to have a different UI and functionalities, features, and more without actually getting an Android update which is nowhere near since your phone is already off the support. LineageOS is developing its ‘LineageOS 17’ which will be based on Android 10 which means you will get to update and try new features without any hassle. Similarly, there are a number of custom ROMs available on the internet that you can download and install without any further ado.
