HarmonyOS is a prime Huawei operating system that deserves to be at the top of the mobile software system world. On the other hand, EMUI 12 has been introduced with a user interface that perfectly copies HarmonyOS in many aspects including the Control Panel features.
As global users really want to know the differences between these two softwares. There we are going to put some light on this matter by showing you what it’s really about by putting EMUI 12 and HarmonyOS software side by side for the Control Panel feature.
What is Control Panel:
The Control panel in new Huawei devices takes the most common settings or options and put them on your phone’s home screen, allowing you to manage things in an easy way.
Let’s kick off our comparison from HarmonyOS 2.
HarmonyOS Control Panel includes four parts of the user interface – Media, Shortcut switches, Super device manager, and Smart Device controller.
The access to Control Panel is quite easy, you just need to open the Control Panel by swiping from the top right side of the display.
Talking about the sections, the media controls allow you to manage media audio playback on the device itself, switch audio apps, or switch playback to a connected audio device. The shortcut controls, enable, disable or set frequently use features on your fingertip.
The Super Device section lets you manage and control all of your connected smart HarmonyOS devices. Lastly, smart device control lets manage devices paired with the AI Life application.
The Control Panel lets you edit the switches, hide the super devices and edit devices for maximum usability.
When you look at EMUI 12, you’ll see a direct copy of the Control Panel Feature from HarmonyOS, as it features the same look. Meanwhile, there’s one change that you’ll see and that is the new Device+ panel instead of Super Device. While you can similar editing feature with the Control Panel in HarmonyOS.
As you can see, there isn’t much of a difference between the two software but you can surely give your own opinion on this matter.
