Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 enables users to multitask and swipe their phones easily

Huawei EMUI 9.0

The new Huawei custom operating system comes with the all-new gesture navigation mode. So how does this improve upon the already stellar Full-View user experience? Let’s find out!

Effective One-Handed Operation

Ever tried to use your phone while holding other things? A thumb’s usually good enough for normal browsing, but at times you’ll want to switch things up and use other apps—then it dawns on you: you’re having a hard time reaching the navigation bar with that finger, and your other hand is firmly planted on the safety rails. Not cool.

But in the all-new gesture navigation mode, you can easily swipe from the edges of the screen towards the center to get around the device, allowing you to assume full control of the device with a single hand.

The Chinless Full-View Experience

While it’s true that you’ve always been able to stow the navigation bar, but that’s never ideal because it was the thing you need to control your device. Hiding it only adds complexity.

The new navigation mode replaces the buttons with simple gestures. Not only is this more ergonomic, but a big change it brings is also it takes away the bar entirely! Good riddance we say – the fewer competitors fighting for screen real estate, the better.

The new gesture navigation mode is available via EMUI 9.0 on the new Huawei devices – take it for a spin and let us know how you think of it!
