Huawei’s P20 flagship phone comes with the company’s latest version of EMUI or Emotion UI. This is Huawei’s take on the new Android 8.1 Oreo. As a result, the device comes fully loaded with a lot of features. The only problem though is where to find them. In this article, we’ll try to give you a couple of important Huawei P20 tips and tricks to allow you to use your smartphone to its full potential.
Did you know that the stunning 6.1-inch display of the Huawei P20 can be tweaked in a lot of ways depending on your preferences?
To do this, you must go to the Huawei P20’s Display section and access the Color & Eye Comfort settings at the top.
Once you’re in the Color & Eye Comfort section, the next thing to do is to turn on the Natural Tone feature. This will allow the device to adjust to the color of the display according to your surroundings. So, if you are in darker environments, the smartphone will produce a warmer display which will be comfortable for your eyes.
There is also the Eye Comfort feature that allows the phone to automatically perform the same function in the evening or turn it on whenever you want.
You can also hide the notch at the top of the display of the phone by heading to Notch section of the display settings if you find that feature annoying.
The one thing that most people hate about the Huawei P20 is that it has no app tray. This means that all your apps are placed on the desktop which can look messy. Thankfully, you can easily fix this by heading to display settings and tapping the Home Screen Style which should activate the phone’s app tray.
Aside from the fingerprint sensor, the Huawei P20 also comes with a good face unlock technology for a more added sense of security.
You can access this by heading to the Security of your phone’s settings. The face unlock is pretty easy to set up. You just have to make sure that you’re in a place with good lighting so the phone will be able to scan your face clearly and properly. Once done, you can now choose whether you want your face to automatically unlock the phone once the display is on or if you want to swipe the screen first to unlock the phone using face unlock.
There is also the Private Security feature that allows you to store your private files from others.
Last but not the least is the gesture commands offered by the Huawei P20. The phone has plenty of amazing gestures and shortcuts that can be really helpful when using the P20 on daily basis.
Gesture commands and shortcuts are hidden inside the phone’s Smart Assistance section on the settings menu. There are also plenty of voice controls if you prefer to use the Huawei P20 hands-free. For example, if you want to take a screenshot, you can simply knock the display twice using your knuckle.
