Oppo / Realme

Some Oppo devices do not support third-party launchers and even when this feature is supported, the procedure is more complicated than it should.

Set Smart Launcher as default launcher

You can set Smart Launcher as default launcher on your Oppo device without rooting or using advanced tools. The option is already available in the system settings, it’s just a little hidden and unfortunately, Oppo prevents the launcher to help the user to find its location.

Install Smart Launcher then follow this 4-steps procedure.

(Tested on Oppo Reno, Oppo RealMe 1, Oppo F7, Oppo A57, Oppo A83, Oppo A37, Oppo A71, Oppo F5, Oppo F3, OPPO F3 Plus)

1 – From any screen, swipe down the notification panel and press the setting icon in the top right corner.

2 – Scroll down the settings list to find “App management” and select it.

3 – Now select, “Default App” then “Homescreen”

4. Finally, you can set change your default launcher and confirm your choice.

You should now be able to enjoy your favorite launcher on your Oppo device!

I cannot set Smart Launcher as default launcher. I cannot find the option where it should be.

Appearantly some Oppo devices are just incompatible with third party launchers. If this is the case, it means you won't be able to use Smart Launcher or any other launcher on your device.
