I enjoy Huawei’s EMui very much! One of my favorite features in this UI is gestures. In particular, it is very handy to take a screenshots using three-finger gesture instead of pressing and holding some key combination. And when your phone has 6-inch screen it is especially important. In this guide I will show how to enable the feature on Huawei phones like P20/Pro/Lite, Mate 20/Pro/Lite, Nova 3/3i, Honor View series, etc.Continue reading
In one of our previous tutorials we explained how to clear the whole call history. But sometimes you may want to delete a single caller from the recent calls list but you don’t want to clear the whole log.

The feature is available in the “flags” but hopefully will migrate to the “Settings” soon.Continue reading

Automatic word replacement is a feature that is designed to fix typos on Android. In Samsung Keyboard app on Galaxy devices it is called auto replace.
