EMUI 10 and Dark Mode

Dark mode is one of the new features in Android 10 Q. It will also be present at the settings level in EMUI 10. The company decided to pay special attention to the development of dark mode.

Honor 8 Last Update

This mode applies not only to system applications, but also to third-party applications. This way, even user-installed applications will be obscured. The main task is to maintain readability and usability of the interface.

New interface

EMUI 10 received a slightly updated design. This is manifested in a change in color shades and rounding of the corners of the application icons. Also, the edges of the screen were rounded to ensure integrity.

In general, there is a noticeable tendency towards minimalism, which has been actively promoted recently. Small strokes, refinement of fonts and lines, smooth animation. All this in total creates a new interface.

In addition, navigation gestures are actively being finalized in the shell. Artificial intelligence actively helps in the work. Namely, it monitors user actions and tries to detect frequently performed actions. With the help of these observations, the smartphone recognizes applications popular with the user and optimizes their launch. That is, frequently used applications will start faster.

Car mode

Android operating system has Android Auto. But EMUI 10 has its own mode for the car. HiCar. With it, you can connect to the car to control multimedia.

In particular, switch the track and control navigation. It is even possible to control air conditioners in the car.

Device Sync

EMUI 10 is ground for working with multiple devices. The relationship with other devices in the ecosystem of Huawei itself is well developed. It supports work with “smart” speakers (speakers), as well as with all kinds of unmanned aerial vehicles, including drones.

Naturally, the Honor and Huawei devices on the EMUI 10 can synchronize with the PC. You can create a virtual screen or simply copy personal files to a computer.
