System and applications
the smartphone is equipped with Android in the 9 Pie version (with security updates from April the 1st 2019), hidden under the Huawei’s EMUI add-on in the 9th version. This is not the lightest add-on, but it is enhanced and user-friendly, with wide personalization options (we can control the phone using buttons or gestures, we can choose the interface without or with the apps’ menu, we can select themes, additional menu on the lock screen, we can hide the notch and others). In settings we can find a lot of functions connected with displaying image: colours, blue light filters or we can decrease resolution.
We can complain about the software from external manufacturers and apps offering the same functions as the software from Google (Gallery – Google photos, e-mail – Gmail, App Gallery – Google Play Store). Useless apps (at least for some users - Booking.com, Amazon and Ebay) can fortunately be uninstalled.
