If yesterday I shared with you all a video in which I showed you how to enable on-screen gestures on the Huawei P20 PRO, thanks to the recent update to Android 9.0, today I bring you a video in which I speak to you and show you what for me they are the main changes or main additions in this new version of the Huawei customization layer.
A video where you can watch roll EMUI 9.0 on the Huawei P20 PRO, Huawei's own personalization layer updated to Android Pie, and as I told you yesterday, every day that passes I like it a little more.
Main novelties of EMUI 9.0 on the Huawei P20 PRO. Finally Android Pie!
How I comment at the beginning of this post, the main news that we can find in this new implementation update, they are not just optimizations in terms of terminal performance If not, it has also been used to add some new features and / or change and improve some aspects that I will list below:
Performance, optimized battery life and minimal user interface changes
As soon as the new operating system is loaded, that is Android 9.0 on the huawei P20 PRO and we started moving through the system running applications and games, browsing the Internet or using our favorite social media applications, it is when we realize the first changes.
Changes that make the device feel even faster and that multitasking or recent tasks are executed in a much more electric way.
Although the curtain of notifications have not made major visual or design changes, it shows Thinner lines that give the user interface a much cleaner look.
Likewise the design of the new on-screen keypads has been completely changed for the control of sound, alarms, notifications and others. A design in the style of Android Pie. A change that, although not of great importance either visually or functionally speaking, I must tell you the truth that it suits you very, very well.
Recent applications totally renewed
The change that I personally liked more, even more than the integration of screen navigation gestures, is the change in multitasking or recent applications. A notable and important change in which application cards are no longer stacked vertically, now they have been shown in horizontal mode and without stacking.
I personally like this style more as it reminds me of the functionality that Xiaomi terminals offer us in their MIUI customization layer, in addition to be much more useful and productive.
Within the settings menu of the Huawei P20 PRO, after updating to Android 9.0 Pie using EMUI 9.0, we can see a new functionality added under the name of Digital Balance.
This function of Balance Digital is nothing more than a terminal usage time manager, an application that will collect data on everything we do with our Huawei P20 PRO, from the times we unlock the terminal to the time we spend with each of the applications we have installed on it.
In addition to giving us pure and hard data of the time that we remain hooked to the screen of our terminal and to the installed applications, It also allows us to set a time limit for use both for the use of the Huawei P20 PRO itself as a whole and to put limitations only to certain applications.
This in addition to an addition that allows us to enable an option called "Bedtime" in which we can configure a start time and an end time in which the screen, in addition to putting on gray tones to protect our eyesight, is also going to allow to select which applications we want to limit or prohibit their access within this schedule previously configured by the user.
Undoubtedly, the added functionality that most people were waiting for is this that allows us to enable screen navigation gestures. Very easy and practical gestures to use when you get used to them since they give a plus to the large screen of the terminal, leaving it free of buttons and freeing the fingerprint reader for purely identification and security functions.
In the video that I leave just above these lines I explain a little more in depth how these new screen navigation gestures of the Huawei P20 PRO work.
AppGallery Assistant, a kind of Game Center suitable for all types of applications and games
This option, as I tell you in the video, I don't know if it was already in the previous version of EMUI although I did not know it, is an option or functionality very similar to what the Game Center function of Samsung terminals offers us.
Removing the options with which the terminals of the popular Korean brand have to be able to record the screen of our Android, which this Assistant Assistant option lacks AppGallery, this new functionality It allows us to decide what happens when we open each of the applications and games that we include in the list.
Thus, for example we can configure so that when we open a specific game, the resources of the terminal are put to work to the maximum, disconnect the notifications on screen as well as block the buttons so that nothing is able to annoy our game.
The big difference with the Samsung Game Center, which by the way I don't know if it will continue to exist since my last Samsung that was a Galaxy S6 Plus, is that in addition to being able to include in this custom optimization list any game we want, It will also allow us to include any application that we have installed on our device.
