EMUI 11 is a revamped version of EMUI 10.0 and 10.1 and it comes with substantial improvements over the predecessor. However, EMUI 12 is something new and we’ll conduct a comparison series between EMUI 12 and EMUI 11 before EMUI 13 comes out. For this, we’ll first look into the changes that have been made to the EMUI quick settings or control panel and check out the differences.
Time to dive in.
EMUI 11: Quick Settings
EMUI 11 quick settings have the traditional quick access icons with a switch feature, which you can enable or disable with a tap. Other than that, you can also change the brightness level through the slider.
Furthermore, the notification panel is attached to the quick settings. Similar to the last version, the EMUI 11 also comes with various customization features to add/remove icons.
The panel has a soft background color that helps you differentiate between the icon and the background.
EMUI 12: Control Panel
EMUI 12 comes with a brand new Control Panel, which is a combination of various services in one place. The Control panel includes a media controller, and smart device manager that helps you connect and control devices such as tablets, FreeBuds, and Smartwatches.
That’s not it, Huawei has retained the quick settings icons from EMUI 11 and added them inside the control panel.
The EMUI 12 control panel has a better appearance with lots of new features. On the flip side, you can edit the switches or disable the smart device panel as per your preference.
We’ll soon bring you the next comparison, until then stay connected.
iOS 15 vs iOS 16: What’s new in Control Center?
Apple has released iOS 16 for iPhones and users are installing this new software to get the latest features. We’ll compare iOS 16 with the iOS 15 control center and inspect its different perspectives and what’s new in these prime iOS versions.
What is Control Panel:
Control Center allows you to enable or disable various instant features without requiring you to open them entirely on the Settings menu. This feature is similar to quick settings in Android phones.
iOS 15 Control center allows you to access the control center with a swipe downwards from the top right corner of the screen.
From there you can manage connectivity such as BlueTooth, WiFi, Airplane mode, and more. On the other hand, you can control playback, as well as brightness and sound sliders.
Furthermore, you can edit these switches from the Settings and add more shortcuts.
iOS 16 brings you the same Control Center as iOS 16 and there are no major changes found in appearance. Meanwhile, the options remain the same as well.
EMUI 11 vs EMUI 12: Settings menu and its design
EMUI 11 has been a good software but the company has brought a set of new features with the successor – EMUI 12. These functions are new and better than ever before. Therefore, It’s time that we look into the Settings menu of EMUI 11 and EMUI 12.
EMUI 11 comes with a straightforward design that has been adopted from EMUI 10.1 and EMUI 10.0. However, it has better fluency than the past versions.
The icons look good and are composed of vibrant colors. The background cards are straight and have sharp corners. The overall design is niche and elegant.
EMUI 12 Settings Menu has better visibility over EMUI 11 with the new font family. It has fresh designed fonts that help you to understand the labels clearly.
As compared to EMUI 11, the new Settings menu is inspired by the HarmonyOS operating system. You can check the difference between both of the settings menus as they are shown below.
The menu option icons are smaller than EMUI 11 and the color vibrance is subtle. On the other hand, the menu has a round corner background card to group certain categories of options.
In the end, the combination of icons, font, and the overall color increases the user experience and allows you to enhance interactiveness with eh user interface.
HarmonyOS 3 animation is smoother and faster than One UI 5.0 and iOS 16 [Video]
A short comparison video shows Huawei HarmonyOS 3 has better and smoother animation than Samsung’s One UI 5.0 and Apple iOS 16 software with a swipe gesture in action.
HarmonyOS 3 is a massive improvement over HarmonyOS 2, as it offers various updates to past features. However, there’s one special specialty of the software that you can never underestimate – animations, which are deeply built into the inner core of the operating system and based on the motion of physics.
Tipster Ice Universe has shared a comparison of UI animation between Huawei Mate 50 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, and iPhone 14 Pro. These phones are packed with HarmonyOS 3.0, One UI 5.0, and iOS 16 respectively.

The video shows the swipe-up gesture directly from the home bar, and HarmonyOS 3 is the first to respond against the other software. Also, the animation is pretty fast in HarmonyOS 3 as compared to One UI 5.0 and iOS 16. The smoothness in the start and end curves is also noticeable in the slow motion.
We also want to mention that iOS 16 has kept the same rhythm as HarmonyOS 3 but One UI 5.0 has a very sluggish outcome when it comes to UI animations.
Animations are important and they create an intriguing effect on the user experience. Huawei’s self-developed design brings new capability to take full advantage of the hardware and optimizes the software for the best possible use cases.
Apple too has the same advantage over Android phones such as Samsung and iPhones optimizations always keep rocking on the benchmarks.

Similarly, Huawei has started to harness the power of the mobile operating system and make it better for consumers. We also want to note that Samsung does need critical improvements in One UI and it should rise the level if it wants to compete against the best in the industry.
On one hand, Samsung is offering less in the software, while on the other HarmonyOS 3 has boasted so many features ready to explore.
