Our Huawei P30 (& Pro) tips and tricks guide shows off some of our favourite features and tools, often hidden away in EMUI 9. Here’s how to get started with your shiny new 2019 smartphone, and for more on the P30 handsets, check out my comparisons with the Mate 20 Pro and some more of the best Android mobiles.
After showing you how to activate the apps drawer, we take a look at Emotion UI’s
‘dark mode’, one of the most hyped features in Android Q – and something you can already do on the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro. We also dish out tips on other screen features, such as the Always On Display, Huawei’s Eye Comfort mode and how to hide the notch.
Next up we dive into some customisation and personalisation tricks, to make these flagships phones look just how you want them to. You can even ditch the navigation bar and use the gesture controls instead.
EMUI 9 offers some new features like the Digital Wellbeing tool, which is actually pretty good when used as parental controls. And fan favourites like the Knuckle Mode split screen option are back in action on the P30 – while the Pro model offers up some Reverse Wireless Charging. And last up we cover security, so you can keep your privates private.
