Do you like separate EMUI 12 notification panel and control panel?
The Huawei EMUI 12 software work to redesign your smartphone in an efficient way, not only in terms of the interface but also in features, optimization, and a new notification panel. And Huawei offers two separate panels one for the notification and another a control panel.
By creating a brand-new notification panel and control panel that is based on an in-depth study on user preferences and psychology. The interface has been split into two independent sections, which improves interactions and makes it easier to tell apart elements.
However, what do you think about a separate Notification panel and control panel in EMUI 12? What does new changes appear?
Before EMUI 12, the notification panel and control panel were initially integrated into a single panel. But after EMUI 12, when swiping down from the top of the screen reveals the notification panel and control panel but in a very different format.
The notification panel is accessed by swiping down from the left edge of the screen, while the control panel is accessed by swiping down from the right edge of the screen.
Why Huawei brought separate panels:
However, these revamp in the panel brought because Device+ and audio were added to control panels in EMUI 12. In addition to the existing shortcut switches. And after adding this above-mentioned shortcut, it’s difficult to have notification messages, shortcut switches, and Device+ all displayed onscreen.
To access them alternatively, you may have to slide or scroll the screen. You would probably assume that the pull-down interface is fragmented and difficult given the complexity of those activities. Even locating a shortcut switch would be extremely difficult.
To read alerts or access the control panel, simply swipe down on the left or right sides of the screen, respectively, when the notification panel and control panel are split into two separate displays. Using Device+, it is simple to enable or modify shortcut switches to suit your needs.
Additionally, the audio control panel is also very helpful having to launch and close numerous audio applications. The ability to switch between apps and choose a playback device is greatly facilitated by shortcut switches.
Meanwhile, for all these reasons, I personally think it a good idea to have to separate panel. Since EMUI 12 places such a high value on user intuition, there is also the Device+ function, which makes it possible to collaborate seamlessly across devices.
But it’s all about my opinion, what about yours? How much do you like the idea of a separate EMUI 12 notification and control panel out of 10 on the scale? Just don’t forget to share reviews with us.

Huawei Mate 50 Pro adds face mask recognition feature
Huawei Mate 50 series has been continuously receiving new features with new software updates. Recently, Huawei has added face mask support for the Mate 50 Pro via a new firmware rollout.
HarmonyOS 220.127.116.11 software version has been rolling out for the Mate 50 Pro users that brings face mask recognition support.
According to the description of this feature, face recognition works accurately when the face is not covered by anything. While wearing a mask, the feature will allow the device to unlock the phone with eye scanning. You just need to look at the Huawei Mate 50 Pro screen to enable the face mask recognition process.
The feature is available in settings and if the user is opt-in to the feature, you just have to tap the slider and give your consent.
