Starting with the most drastic part of the UI — when compared to the stock experience – Huawei has removed the ubiquitous app drawer from the home screen, which makes all your apps visible on the phone’s home screen. If you want to add widget(s) to the screen, you have to long tap the wallpaper instead.
Our main concern is for folks who like to download and install apps by the dozens, as it may not be such an intuitive experience to scroll through so many home screens. They are apparently limited to only nine, though.
Another highlight of the Emotion UI is one that’s usually found on your old feature phone, a profile changing feature. Huawei has added some preset profiles to meet certain situations for when you’re driving, going to a meeting, and others – and you can switch from one profile to the next easily using a radial menu.
