System and applications
Huawei Mate 20 Lite works under Android 8.1 Oreo with the EMUI 8.2 add-on. The interface does not add anything new when it comes to previous Huawei models with the EmotionUI add-on. I consider this as one of the best – though it strongly interferes with the system, it is aesthetical, intuitive and it offers a lot of useful options in comparison to pure Android.
Basically the system works well, though with seldom errors and lags in apps (Camera and Chrome). But probably the manufacturer will manage to enhance them (or better optimize the system) in future updates. There is a lot of interface personalization options, gesture supports (though without a popular double knock to wake up the display), choosing the screen mode (with or without apps menu), tools for controlling apps’ work in the background, as well as power management, app cloning, working on a divided screen…
As far as system’s capabilities can be assessed positively, I do not enjoy the set of preinstalled apps – I am talking mostly about third companies apps – there is too much of them and they are totally useless. And we will find here Booking.com, eBay, Netflix, Amazon Assistant, and in addition five games: Asphalt Nitro, Kingdoms, Dragon Mania, Puzzle Pets and Spider-Man: Ultimate Power. Fortunately, we can uninstall all of them. I am not overly fond with the set of apps signed by the manufacturer. There are some apps that I would definitely keep, like the music player or files manager. But on the other hand, there is a lot of them that I consider useless ones, like Party Mode, HiCare, AppGallery, Mirror or Quik.
