Do you have an Honor or Huawei phone with EMUI? You don't know how to take advantage of the company's customization layer? While it is true that EMUI is quite similar to Android, and ultimately, iOS, the layer has a philosophy that can hinder its use by nephites or older people. Changing the launcher or blocking applications with a password are some of the actions that we can carry out among many others that we will see next.

Install a theme to customize the mobile
While it is true that EMUI 10 and EMUI 9 have largely restricted the possibility of changing the theme on Huawei Honor phones, the truth is at the moment it is possible, although we will have to proceed through third-party applications.
The application in question is called Themes for Huawei, and We can download it from the Google store. We can also use themes hosted in the Google store itself.
After having downloaded and installed the application, we will only have to select a theme from the catalog to download it on the mobile. We can also change the aesthetics of the system separately: from the icons of the applications to the typography of the system and its appearance.
To apply the theme we just downloaded we will have to refer us to the Topics section that we can find in the Settings application.
Change launcher for Nova Launcher
We will not deny it, the launcher or launcher that Huawei phones bring by default is something rough and heavy. Although there are many options in the Google store, the one we recommend from tuexpertomovil.com is Nova Launcher.
In addition to being a free launcher (it has some payment options), it allows us install icon packs, and even change the system font and expand the size of the applications, among other things.

To this is added the possibility of creating custom gestures within the screen, hide applications permanently or even create shortcuts for certain routines, not to mention its optimization and fluidity when navigating between applications.
Lock password applications
Although EMUI does not allow us to hide applications or shortcuts, s that we can block applications with an alphanumeric password. If our mobile phone has a face unlock or fingerprint sensor, we can even enable a lock through these methods.

The way to proceed is as simple as directing us to the application of Settings, and more specifically to the Security and privacy section. Once inside we will go to the option of App Lock and we will configure the corresponding method to block the apps.
Now we just have to select all those applications that we want to block password by.
Activate the Find my device option
Better safe than sorry. The Spanish proverb says so. A function that Android includes as standard since its fifth iteration is Find my device.
Thanks to this we can monitor the position of our mobile phone at all times. We can also block the phone remotely, format it and even sound an alarm voice.
To activate this function we will have to go to the Security and privacy section and then until the option to find my device. Now we just have to make sure that the main option remains active.

It is advisable to have constant monitoring is activate GPS and mobile data whenever we leave home. To find the position of the phone we will have to refer to this page. We can also download the same application to have control of other devices from the mobile phone itself.
From both platforms we can know the position of the mobile in real time, the battery level, the name of the WiFi network to which it is connected and even the IMEI number of the device.
Hide images inside the Galley
Hiding the Galley as such in EMUI is not possible. This does not mean that we can not hide files, images, videos and, in general, any file that is inside the storage of our mobile Honor or Huawei.
To make use of this curious function we will have to refer to the Security and privacy section that can be found in Settings. Inside thisWe will find an option called Safe. Now we just have to click on it and create a numerical password that serves as protection to hide all the files we want.

Finallywe will select all those files that we want to hidebefore the application of the Galley and File Manager application. To visualize them again, however, we will have to refer again to the function of Safe.
Activate system gestures
The main one of EMUI 9 and EMUI 10 is based on the implementation of native navigation gesture system with which we can interact with the applications and system options without resorting to the traditional touch buttons of Men, Back and Recent Applications.
<img class = "alignnone size-full wp-image-243074 lazyloaded ewww_webp_lazy_load” title=”11 tricks of the Huawei P Smart and Smart Plus to get the most out of them 2″ alt=”tricks huawei p smart 2019 1″ width=”590″ height=”1280″ src=”https://www.tuexpertomovil.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/trucos-huawei-p-smart-2019-1.jpg” src-webp=”https://www.tuexpertomovil.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/trucos-huawei-p-smart-2019-1.jpg.webp”/>
To proceed with its activation we will have to go to the application of adjustments, and more specifically you have the System section. Followed we will go to System Navigation and choose the Gestures option Among the four options available.
Upon activation, Android's typical on-screen buttons will disappear permanently. To interact with the system we will have to use the following gestures:
- Swipe from the right or left to the center: go back.
- Swipe from bottom to top from one of the sides (right or left): Activate the Google Assistant application.
- Slide from bottom to top: Go to Start.
- Swipe from bottom to top and keep: go to Recent Applications.
Capture the screen with three fingers
Tired or tired of turning to the Volume Up and Power buttons to make screenshots? EMUI has a powerful function that allows us to capture the screen by sliding three fingers down.
To activate the option in question just go to the Settings application, and more specifically to the Smart Assistance section and then to Control Movements.
Within this section we will go to Capture with three fingers and finally activate the only option present. If our Honor or Huawei phone is high end, most likely this function is replaced by pinching with the knuckles. Phones like the Huawei P20 Pro or the Mate 20 have this curious function.
Accelerate the animations to make the mobile faster
Unfortunately there is no application or method that allows us to improve the performance of a telephone. What we can do is to accelerate the EMUI animations to improve your response when opening applications, interacting with mens or switching between activities. To carry out this task, however, we will have to activate the developer options.
<img class = "alignnone size-full lazyloaded” title=”11 tricks of the Huawei P Smart and Smart Plus to take full advantage of them 4″ alt=”11 tricks of the Huawei P Smart and Smart Plus to get the most out of them 2″ width=”1200″ height=”1200″ src=”https://www.tuexpertomovil.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/mejorar-rendimiento-huawei-y6.jpg”/>
Enabling these options is as simple asclick several times on compilation numberwithin the section of About phone we can find in the Settings application. Specifically, in the System section.
<img class = "alignnone size-full lazyloaded” title=”11 tricks of the Huawei P Smart and Smart Plus to take full advantage of them 5″ alt=”11 tricks of the Huawei P Smart and Smart Plus to take full advantage of them 3″ width=”1200″ height=”1200″ src=”https://www.tuexpertomovil.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/mejorar-rendimiento-huawei-y6-2.jpg”/>
After having activated the development options the menu in question appear within the System section. Once inside these options we will go to the following sections:
- Transition-animation scale
- Window animation scale
- Animator duration scale
To speed up the animations we will have to set lacifra at 0.5x. If we select 0x or Animations deactivated, the animations will be completely deactivated.
Install the TrueCaller application to block spam calls
While it is true that EMUI already has a function that allows us to block incoming calls and contacts stored in the phonebook, applications such as True Caller they even identify the person responsible for the call if it has been reported by other users as an moles annoying number ’or‘ spam number ’.
Once we are inside the application, simply activate the spam call filter so that the system Automatically block any call that the application detects as spam or annoys.

The application in question also allows us to record calls and even block all those numbers that have been stored in the phonebook of the phone.
Install the IFTTT application to create smart routines
Do not be scared by the name. IFTTT is an application that does not already have any functionality. To give value we will have to download routines that the application is able to apply every time a certain condition is met.
What routines can we find within IFTTT? Upload a photo on Instagram and automatically post it on Twitter and Facebook, enable WiFi connection when we are coming home, play a Spotify playlist when we are on our way to work, turn on the smart lights of the house when we enter through the door, activate the robot cleaner when it rains… In short, endless possibilities, and all available to anyone for free. We can also create our custom routines based on our behavior.
