Personally I would love for smartphone makers to allow customization, as it is nice to have their launcher, there is sometime some features/appearances you can't get anywhere, but you can't do much, that's why I prefer using something such as Nova Launcher, here is how my phone pages looks like :
Also, I use a wallpaper randomized, though all are anime girls, everytime I unlock the phone, I get a new one, which is pleasant as it gives some variety and sense of surprise, but it also is good on the Oleds.
The main page is voluntarily empty, BTW it is the same on my PC, I have not a single icon on my desk, in fact I simply don't show it (Right click on the Desk > View > "Show Desktop Icons") but rather use the start menu to have my shortcuts, so I have beautiful wallpaper view, aircraft by default and when Origin is launched (my GF playing The Sims) it switches to cats.
So except the navigation icons and the status bar that we can't just disable for a single page, my phone look quite clean on the home page, and I love that, no launcher or custom overlay can do better for me than that.
So basically, the only thing that X or Y brand can offer me is how they arranged the setting page, as some lack quite a few options.
But anyway, I watched some EMUI images, and it looks quite good!
Not a fan, 12 Jan 2021Wtf. Still Kirin 985? And priced 620 dollars? Are you kidding me??Hahaha. Huawei running out of chips and sales, so even though they don't have newer chip, they must still have stockpile of 2 year old Kirin 985.
Announce Google Services soon for all Huawei devices !!!!!
Talk with the new US President Biden and make a new deal !!!!
Lyndino, 13 Jan 2021You think that if they had proper supply of components the price would not have increased??? ... moreMaybe but the specs would probably have been better as it likely would have had the kirin 9000e chip

All brands increase prices over time.
Demongornot, 12 Jan 2021I've never tried any Huawei/Honor phone, so I'll trust your words!Great phones. I had Samsung and iPhone, but i ha e to say as value for money Huawei tops the lot despite those who try to put them down
Demongornot, 12 Jan 2021I've never tried any Huawei/Honor phone, so I'll trust your words!In my eyes with through usage I am certain EMUI is the best Android overlay that has emerged out of China.
I have tried Vivo's FuntouchOS (NEX S), Oppo's ColorOS (F7), Huawei's EMUI (Honor View 10), Meizu's FlymeOS (Meizu 16) & even Xiaomi's MIUI (Poco M2 Pro). Don't get me wrong all are good, but to me EMUI has a slight advantage in terms over overall UI feel, smoothness & in details of execution.
Recently got hold of a Honor 9X Pro, dirt cheap at INR 12.75K ($170/€156) during stock clearance in India. Hardware wise under $200 there is nothing here that can compete with this phone. Not even Poco X2, X3 or Realme 7. The Kirin 810 SoC is bonkers in terms of performance, simply pulling out Snapdragon 845 grade performance in a $170 phone. However you have to do with HMS. No GMS in this phone.
Demongornot, 12 Jan 2021This phone is like the mix of every toxic intrusive trends together :
*Double punch hole !
*... moreAgree, except for the EMUI which is a really good OS nowadays, it became a decent OS last 2-3 years.
I better like it vs Samsung, Asus, OnePlus and Xiaomi.
Lyndino, 12 Jan 2021lol, what a piece of junk. No expandable proprietary memory? No IP rating? Mediocre cameras... moreAgree apart from Emui. Personally, definitely find it the most useful software in China of the brands I've used at least in terms of features and functionality (the NFC functionality is much better than Xiaomi, Oneplus and Oppo at least, especially for cloning access cards and automatic switching between transport cards when traveling to different cities). The double touch and hold to instantly translate both text and images is also extremely useful. It's something I really miss when switching to other brands
Uncle D, 12 Jan 2021High cost for 985 👎🏻Yeah. Huawei phones and Honor phones have all increased in price in China due to lack of supply. They basically have such limited supply of chips. This also increases the cost of the chips. Basically all 5g Honor and Huawei phones are currently sold out and only available in Flash/Limited sales. Very difficult to get get hold of a Mate 40 or Mate 40 pro in particular as there is also very high demand. The Nova 8 series is worse than the Nova 7 series which was already worse than the Nova 6 (which had a better chip and cameras). Makes them not very good value for money (although still similarly priced to Oppo's Reno 5 pro which is also way overpriced
