Huawei Mate 40 Pro Interface And Usage Experience – There is no Android 11 because the EMUI 11 used is still based on Android 10. Still no GMS and Huawei have confirmed if given back access they will stay with HMS which is their own ecosystem. The experience of using the Mate 40 Pro is actually not much different from a GMS -equipped device. Still smooth and fast especially if 90Hz screen mode is used.
All features like gesture control, launch two devices simultaneously. doing screen customization is the same as the original Android. The absence of GMS applications such as YouTube, Maps and Google Photos must be admittedly deeply felt. But in November 2020, the situation is not as bad as on the Mate 30 Pro.
The EMUI 11 on the Mate 40 Pro also brings interesting additional features such as Air Gestures touchless hand control. The screen can be scroll, turned off and screenshots all without touching the screen. Not to end there, users are also give the option to remove screen holes as well as waterfall screens on the sides by activating Cutout and Edges modes. This to some extent resolves the issue of the display spilling out to the side while watching a video.

At Huawei App Gallery, more and more applications are offered, especially those that are important for local users such as Touch ‘n Go eWallet, Maybank U2, MySejahtera, Astro Go and many more. The application cluster has been patch successfully. If not, Petal Search launched last April can be use. Find the required application and continue downloading. Through Petal Search, the difficulty of side loading can be greatly reduce. Want Netflix, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram? Download only using Petal Search.
The process of updating the android application is also not user -friendly enough. Petal Search will not update the app to the latest version automatically as in the Play Store. Updates are done individually and manually. The process of updating is the same as installing it for the first time. As an IT literate person, I feel this process is very tedious. For those who are less IT literate, this is a process that can be confusing.
