En ce qui concerne Huawei et Emui.

Regarding Huawei and Emui.

Avant de choisir un smartphone pliable, il faut toujours regarder les différents modèles disponibles sur le marché. Lequel, permettra vraiment de mater les blagues tous les jours de manière confortable ?

après la sortie de la p30 pro, je sais que certains d’entre vous pensent de l’obtenir.

Les critiques sont tout au sujet de la caméra, mais ce que j’ai et autres utilisateurs veulent savoir, c’est comment le logiciel pile vers le haut ? Quels problèmes et bugs fait Emui ont ? Avantages et inconvénients, comparaison à l’oxygène, une interface utilisateur, miui, etc..

Dans l’ensemble, j’espère susciter une bonne discussion.

  1. I’ve used three Huawei phones, one in 2013, another in 2016, and finally the one I got now (Mate 20 Pro).

    The first one didn’t have EMUI yet, it was pretty much stock.

    The phone I got in 2016 had EMUI 4 and it really had a lot of problems with notifications, even when I disabled the battery optimizations.

    The phone I have now has EMUI 9 and it’s much better than what I was expecting, I actually like it a lot, it’s very fast, and I don’t have any problem with notifications or apps being killed (provided that I manually allow them to run in the background in the battery settings).

    Overall I think EMUI is a good skin, it still can be improved in terms of design (EMUI 9.1 seems to improve the uniformity of icons)

    One thing that a lot of people don’t like is that it doesn’t have a app draw by default, you have to activate it in the settings if you want it. And because of that some people don’t like it because it reminds them of iOS. But you can also use a third party launcher if you want.

    Finally, the thing I like the most is the navigation gestures, they are very similar to the Fluid NG app. Much more functional than the Pixel gestures.

  2. The biggest issue with EMUI is that their management system is rather aggressive in term of permission and background activity. If you are able to dig in and get pass that by tuning some setting it’ll be fine.

  3. EMUI has its own special permissions, so some apps may not work as intended, because devs have not modified behaviour of their apps for Huawei devices.

    Also, there’s quite aggressive power management, so if you don’t want system to kill an app whenever possible, you have to allow that app in several different places (settings, phone manager etc.) and even this may not save the app from being killed by system…

    Finally, there’s no (official) way how to unlock the bootloader, only unofficial ones and they are paid.


    PS: Huawei has started to update its devices bi-monthly.

  4. Coming from a Huawei fanboy that has owned majority of flagships since mate 7. Emui has become almost to restrictive. It’s a lot of little things that got on my nerve over time.

    I had the mate 20x for a few months and it was non stop tinkering for basic things like apps, my samsung watch, my car radio etc. I didn’t mind emui prior to emui 9 but feels like its getting closer to apple. Nothing really game breaking but since I have no real need for rooting I expect fully featured phones to work. Pro to all of this is battery life management. Doesn’t get much better than Huawei.

    Not a fan of stock. Just boring to me but not a knock on anyone who perfer stock. I like everything plus the kitchen sink and Huawei offers that. Emui offers everything you just might have to work for it.

    Since I was able to get a note 9 for 1/3 the price my 20x was, I sold and switch to Samsung.

  5. This. I preordered mine yesterday (UK) and I’m dying to know because I haven’t had a Huawei before.

    Also I’d love to know if anyone knows about stuff like case/screen protection apparently it comes with a case in the box and I can’t find protectors from my usual brands online! Spigen UK have even confirmed that, while they are making cases, they are not making screen protectors for the P30/Pro.


  6. EMUI 8 and now 9 were consistently fast all the time on my Mate 9.

    I like how you can have the phone automatically put the apps to sleep after screen off, I use it for apps I don’t want or need running in the background.

    The knuckle gestures are cool, although I only use the knock for screenshot.

    I like some features baked directly into the ROM (like screen recording and app twin, possible to have two separate instances of the same app, shortcuts from what I can tell work on the default launcher only). Private Space is also cool – a whole separate profile you can bind to a specific fingerprint. You can, say, separate the private section of the device from the business section. One has no access to the files from the other unles they’re put into a shared folder. Neat.

    EMUI 5 and 8 have a ton of cool custom made themes (not just the official ones) which look pretty good. Themes for EMUI 9 are a bit scarce at the moment, but those that are out can help make the phone use a dark theme system-wide, even in system apps.

    Cons? Inconsistencies on the graphics front (on EMUI 9 the status bar for some reason does not scale with the rest of the elements, so a 432dpi screen looks… Odd. Visually it’s too much like iOS, but nothing a custom launcher can’t fix to some extent.

    Battery optimizations can get a bit too overzealous although there is no doubt in my mind they do help with the battery life, but to get it to work the way YOU want to takes some time and tinkering.

    If in general you prefer the stock experience, EMUI will disappoint you since it is nothing like it.

    If I think of more, I’ll let you know.

  7. Got a Huawei Nova 2 years ago. Originally it came with EMUI 4, which I didn’t like because it looked so different from stock Android, but it was very fast and I didn’t cared much about.
    EMUI 5, which I received few months later, was much closer to stock Android, had some useful feature, but gosh, it was extremely buggy and aggressive. Even after adding an app to every possible whitelist EMUI 5 still killed it.

    I hated performance of EMUI 5 so much I didn’t wanted to get another Huawei phone. But I liked Honor View 20 so much I decided to give EMUI another chance.

    Running Magic UI (= EMUI 9) right now and it’s great. It’s smooth, eye-candy looking, haven’t noticed any aggressiveness with RAM. There’s still room for improvement, but currently my user experience with recent version of EMUI is great.

  8. I like EMUI. Especially EMUI 5 and 8 on the Mate 9. It was fast, reliable, regularly updated, had useful features, could be thoroughly themed (importing icon packs system wide for example) and largely got out of the way.

    Generally I find Huawei’s software less intrusive and full of dark patterns than Samsung’s. Samsung is all about trying to push and ideally lock users in to specific features and orders of operation that may not be of any value to the user whatsoever – like Bixby and endless other dubious integrations that take a lot of taming and turning off. The latest being some kind of dire local business tab in the dialer, yikes.

    Huawei has done a few Samsung-style things post the P20s, chiefly in that there are now a pile of settings that should be on by default and aren’t, or should be off by default and aren’t – just like Samsung’s phones. When I talk to friends and colleagues with Huawei or Samsung phones I often end up showing them all these settings that massively improve the experience if they’re toggled. Like hey, the awesome dark mode which is under ‘Battery’ settings for some arcane reason. Maybe you like exploring your phone’s software, maybe you prefer it to just work to the best of its abilities out of the box, but this is how it is with both of these brands.

    Huawei is the most vertically integrated Android vendor thanks to Samsung’s continuing strategy of dual sourcing SoCs. Huawei’s hardware is great. Their software interestingly seems to get consistently bad reviews from the US tech press and good reviews from Asia and Europe, which I feel speaks to the differing needs and preferences between those markets.

    EMUI 9 is a bit messy and inconsistent and buggy on the Mate 20 Pro. I get the impression it was rushed. This combined with how locked down the devices are now, how many hoops you have to jump through to update it manually if you can at all, and the weird combo of region-specific software + updates being deployed based on the SIM present in the device + mismatched CTS profiles if you put a different SIM in while travelling and receive an update that doesn’t match the preloaded build is frankly a bit off-putting.

    Thankfully EMUI 9.1 on the P30s goes a fair way towards fixing some of the regressions in 9.0. The inconsistent icons are gone and there are third party notifications on the always-on display – that’s a start. Looking forward to more.

  9. I’m buying the P30 as my second phone. I currently have a Galaxy S10+ for work. I don’t know much about Huawei UI other than the fact that most every reviewer says that it’s not « ideal. » It sounds like Huawei is where Samsung was a couple years ago. It’s not a deal breaker (thanks to NOVA launcher) but everyone kinda thinks it sucks. I’m hoping things are good enough. My only experience with a Huawei was the Nexus 6P which goes down as one of my favorite devices. We will see.

  10. My manager had a View10. He replaced it with a OnePlus 5 after 6 months because he couldn’t stand EMUI.

    Another friend had a P20 Pro. He said he loved the battery, camera, and build but EMUI was too buggy and janky for him to use, and he would often miss notifications.

  11. For me there seems to be alot of controversy/negativity surrounding Huawei as an overall company at the moment. Whether this has any negative impact on whether we should buy their phones, maybe someone can comment.

    Their phones do look gorgeous however, can’t really comment on EMUI.

    May well purchase one in the future, although I am aware many people are loving Samsung new One UI, as it currently stands I would go for Galaxy S10 line up.


  12. The thing that annoyed me the most was that I couldn’t expand notifications to read the preview. Also, once you unlock your phone, notifications will disappear (even the ones you didn’t interact with), some of my music players couldn’t display lock screen notifications, apps with accessibility access like Lastpass couldn’t stay in memory (Autofill couldn’t work), third-party lockscreen wallpapers got replaced by the stock wallpapers on reboot. I got fed up and just sold my phone (Emui based on Nougat) and got an inferior Moto device but with better software.

  13. Coming from stock android, it’s totally fine honestly.

    The biggest issue it’s aggressive app management. Unless you tell it otherwise it will kill apps way too often which can lead to problems if you have certain apps you want running in the background.

  14. I just want to say that Huawei has to move away from the iOS wannabe skin if they want to be taken seriously. It really detracts from the otherwise amazing phones.

  15. I used EMUI 3 – EMUI 9, and til EMUI 8 everything was great. Great software, a bit iOS-like but all in all beautiful. With EMUI 8, the style changed very much to be closer on stock Android. The integrated extras like device manager (for storage, RAM, battery, call blocker and app safe) were nice to have. Performance was good as well so I was Always happy with EMUI.

    But then came EMUI 9 and they ruined everything (for me). They used different wallpapers for different sections like app search and calling screen instead of using the current user wallpaper und blur/darken it (like it was before). As a perfectionist and design enthusiast it was awful for me. The performance in general was still pretty good but not as fluid as it was. Animations were partly lagging especially when using pie gestures and third party launchers. There were also another few small Things that annoyed me that hard that I tried to Downgrade my P20 Pro (I was on Beta Pie but the problems still occur as I see on my GFs Mate 20 Pro and posts in forums and on reddit) but had no luck. So I sold my P20 Pro within two months of using EMUI 9 and buyed an OnePlus 6T. I was flashed by the overall performance after switching. OxygenOS is much more fluent and better in my opinion.

    So if you like taking really good pictures and/or you don’t care that much About small Performance issues go for the P30 Pro. If you’re a Performance and design Enthusiast drop and you don’t care that much About the camera go for a OnePlus, or if you want a good camera choose a Samsung though I can’t say that much About OneUI. But I’m Pretty sure others can.

  16. Just chiming in to say I bought a Mate 20 Pro about a month ago, slapped Nova Launcher on it with Fluid NG and it’s an amazing experience. I have not had problems with notifications. I was a bit worried about EMUI coming from Pixel Launcher, but to be honest Fluid NG + Nova is a better experience. I totally get why people don’t like EMUI, but the hate is so overblown – if you don’t like it, you can *basically* disable it.

  17. I mean there’s a reason each and every mate 20/p20/p30 review puts software in the « con » list. it’s just not good. great hardware, but the software needs an overhaul

  18. If you are paying best of part of 1k for a phone you shouldn’t have to faff about with launchers etc to make to software accessible and user friendly /attractive

  19. Has EMUI gotten support for 3rd party notifications on the AOD yet? If not, is there a notification LED which can be used to indicate unread snaps, calender notifications etc?

    A notification LED should be possible to implement. Seeing as e.g. P30 uses AMOLED, one could simply flash a certain bundle of screen LEDs? However, maybe this requires more « screen services » to be awake, thus draining battery.

  20. aggressive RAM management still breaks many apps. and huawei has a history of removing functionality (like the ability to install apps to SD) so completely even root can’t bring it back. be certain everything you care about is supported before you buy, especially since huawei stopped unlocking bootloaders

  21. Just sold my 20X. Absolutely loved the hardware. The 6.9″ screen, 5k mAh battery, amazing cameras all paired up for a combo of features I can’t find in anything else. I’m hoping the note 10 can compare even moderately.

    But the killer of my love for it was most definitely EMUI. I shouldn’t have to live in fear of notifications just suddenly not working because after an update all my settings get reset, or having to check my tablet when I got home to see what notifications I missed. It was just too much work, even the amazing hardware couldn’t outshine how terrible the software experience is.

  22. Fanboy here.

    It was absolutely nightmare around 2017.

    It got huge improvements later on and kept getting better and better.

    My dad used samsung exclusively and i do not like it at all. However you can still use it with « modern society expected » level of computer sense.

    My previous work phone was a xiaomi, and it is plain crap. Probably it is an old model that never got updates but it was a complete torture to use.

  23. I’m using a P20 at the moment, though my main phone is a Pixel 2 XL. As others have mentioned, the most annoying part of using EMUI is the background notifications. I’ve missed some important messages over Signal because the OS just decided to kill the app for whatever reason despiteit using GMS for notifications. Messages come in the next time you unlock the device.

    The P20 also has a bug where if you use any other skin apart from the stock ones, going into split screen will break the recent apps menu and not display anything. A restart is needed to go back to normal. I’m aware that some tweaks can be done to fix the problem, but things like that shouldn’t be a problem if theming options are included in the OS.

    Despite this, I could use EMUI if I had to since I could just not use split screen or change themes. The main problem I had with the P20 that made me stop using it altogether is that the camera when shooting in auto consistently gets white balance wrong. It doesn’t seem to be an issue on the Mate 20 onwards however.

  24. I preordered the Mate 20 pro past year as an upgrade from my S8. I sent in back within 2 weeks and bought a 6T which I was much happier with. The Huawei’s hardware was great, but I couldn’t deal with the poor software experience with MIUI. The notifications and more specifically the notifications on the lock screen were deal breaker for me.

  25. Im not sure if anyone feels the same way as me, but the reviews on huawei’s cameras are really fake
    I own a P20 and using it in real world just feels really bad. The pictures are really light washed in bright scenarios, like all the light would bleed into the details of the picture and ruin the quality of the picture
    Night mode is good, just for able to capture more stuff than other phones are usually able to but the images are still relatively bad, like unfocused subject and lots of noise
    I’ve tried the P30 and the normal mode capturing bright images seem as bad as P20 if not worse
    Is there anything that I’m doing wrong or is it meant to be like that?
