System and applications
The smartphone has Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9 add-on. This is probably one of the last smartphones from Huawei that has access to full Google Play services. And we do not know for how long updates will be available for it. P Smart Z has a security update from June the 5th 2019, so for now there are no problems.
The manufacturer, as usual, filled the software with too many apps, which double standard services from the Google package (Gallery and Google Photos, e-mail and Gmail, AppGallery and Google Play). There are apps from external manufacturers (Facebook, Booking.com, Amazon and Ebay), which fortunately can be uninstalled.
When it comes to functions and capabilities, we described EMUI many times, so there is no reason to describe all particular elements one more time. Let us take a look at the personalization interface in the smallest details, we can adjust system buttons, turn on one-hand usage, use gestures and moves, plan turning the device on and off… The user can select the style of icons and fonts, change the resolution, adjust image colours and turn on the blue light filter.
