It annoys me when the screen suddenly turns off or becomes darker while reading. Therefore, I always increase the screen backlight time (sleep timeout), usually choosing 2 minutes. This timeout is the most comfortable for me, so that the screen does not turn off when it is not awaited.screen timeout
In this step-by step guide I will explain how to change (increase or decrease) the sleep timeout of the screen on Huawei P30, Mate or any other modern Huawei phone that runs Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9 on top of it. Besides that you will understand why the “Sleep” setting is greyed out (just unclickable) and you cannot change the screen timeout. The solution is actually easy.
In this simple guide you will learn how to enable the dark theme (or dark mode) in settings of your Huawei P30 Pro in a few taps of your finger. The tutorial will be also applicable to all other modern models running Android 9 with EMUI 9.1 such as Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 30 that should be released soon.
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.
Do you remember how happy we were when Google rolled out those dots for apps? It seemed so exciting to see dots right on the icons on new message, discussion reply or other event. Some time later the badges appeared and began to compete with dots. There is no doubt that the notification with counters look more informative because they can tell you the exact number of notifications the apps has for you. Personally I prefer to know how many calls I missed or how many messages I received when I gaze at my Huawei phone’s screen. Otherwise, I will need to open each app to find that out. Today I will explain how to display badges with counters instead of dots on Huawei phones running EMUI 8.2 and 9. All screenshots taken on my Nova 3i. But the guide is also applicable to other models, such as P20, P30, P40 Pro/Lite, Mate 20/30, Honor 8X, etc. I will add extra steps as soon as new EMUI version comes out with changes.

Huawei phones running EMUI 9 and 8 have unlock password option selected by default. But many of you don’t like to enter 6 digits every time you want to access your phone. The majority of users prefer to use a pattern instead because it is much faster to draw a pattern then target digits on the keyboard. Password, PIN or pattern are used when you don’t use the fingerprint reader to unlock – for example, when it is not convenient for you. Besides that, you must type password or draw your security pattern after you turn on or reboot your device. Here is how to switch the security mode from password to pattern on Huawei running EMUI 9 and 8. This guide will be updating as new EMUI versions are released. Continue reading
