What's New EMUI 10?
EMUI is a Huawei-designed user interface that sits on top of Google's Android. In this case, EMUI 10 works on top of Android 10. Sort of a SKIN you would add to give it some flavour!
Several current devices from Huawei are receiving the EMUI 10 update. More notable is the P30 series smartphones. You can check out the original review titled “OMG! Huawei P30 Pro does it stand up?!” as well as the revisit I've done “Revisiting Huawei’s P30 Pro – Amber Sunrise – 5 months later!“.
What's changed in EMUI 10?
- A magazine designed user interface, which involves a more minimalist layout with more white space between apps, settings and notifications. The reverse is also true when using Dark Mode.
- The user experience now comes with more smooth and dynamic animation effects that can be experienced through hands and eye combination. The feature for UX improvement expands to elastic touch, swiping trajectory movement, and comfortable transition between apps.
- The dark mode is actively optimizing the colour contrast between texts and dark backgrounds. This has for effect to providing better readability, clarity during the night time or in low light conditions.
- New camera options, including new colour grading options and filters. (New Interface)
- Seamless connection to Huawei's Matebook laptops (similar to Apple's feature between iOS and macOS), giving you a smartphone screen on your laptop display to drag and drop files, and message people using your keyboard. (Works wonders with the Matebook 13).
- Improved performance: EMUI 10 provides nearly 26% response latency decrease, and 56% latency fluctuation decrease, according to Huawei.
- In the previous version of EMUI, there was only white colour available for Always-on Display (AOD) but with EMUI 10, users can customize their AOD elements with different mixed colours and a new set of options.
- To make the interface more visually friendly, the icons design has received a golden ratio makeover with more rounder shape and sharp appearance.
