Samsung is playing One UI 5 activities for top smartphones and there are a lot of features to explore on this Android 13 adaptation but it still lacks a useful feature such as the Large folders from Huawei EMUI.

Yeah, Samsung knows innovation but the hand-in-hand relationship with Android has made it lazy. That’s how Samsung is making fewer efforts to make the One UI interesting and interactive.

Hence, this Android 13 version of Samsung One UI 5 doesn’t bring you any app management solution that competes with Huawei EMUI. Still, heavily, Samsung One UI relies on traditional app folders that don’t bring you the functionality that is required to manage the home screen app.

On the other hand, Huawei is the first in the world to bring such an easy-to-use feature that makes a big impact on app management. You just need to tap and hold an app folder, enlarge it and you can launch any app in an instant by just taping over the app icons of that folder.

Importantly, you won’t have to open that folder first.

Large Folders is now being copied by Chinese phone makers such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, and Oppo. Meanwhile, others are preparing to understand the concept so that they can also get it on their new devices.

As for Huawei, it introduced the first HarmonyOS 2 and with HarmonyOS 3, the company took gave this feature a whole new capability. As you can now reshape the large folders in different row and column layouts based on the app inside that folder.

Samsung:

There was a time when Samsung had its edge over other Android phone makers in terms of cutting-edge technologies but now, the South Korean firm has become worry-free. As it keeps on concentrating on new devices that aren’t irrelevant to the innovation and are unuseful in software use cases.

Huawei EMUI 13

EMUI 13 beta kicked off for global users and it’s quite exciting but the roadmap of eligible Huawei devices is still awaited. While there’s no official news available on this matter.

In 2021, Huawei released EMUI 12 roadmap during the Asia pacific launch event but this year, there are no such plans revealed. Instead of the roadmap, Huawei opened the EMUI 13 beta for all Huawei P50, P50 Pro, P50 Pocket, and Mate Xs 2 foldable phones.

Unfortunately, the program is open for the Asia region but more users want to join the beta activity. Especially the European models are waiting for term to dive into the testing pool.

Despite the delay, we hope that the oldest set of devices may also get a slot into this EMUI 13 release program.

In the meantime, if you have a flagship phone, tune into the Beta app. From here open the “Me” section and then search for a new EMUI 13 beta project.

You need to sign up for the beta application and wait for the submission. Once submitted, you will be notified to download the OTA update package.

If the activity is not available on your phone, don’t worry, you will see the project after the beta opens in your country. Yet, we also suggest you keep an eye on the Beta application.

EMUI 13 Features:

EMUI 13 focuses on reinventing EMUI 12, this includes better security and privacy. This new software can review all of the data safety measures thanks to the new privacy center.

It has new options to allow or revoke permission, check the timeline for all of the user permission, and so on. You can also set new image privacy to hide the image meta information.

EMUI 13 also plays well around the user interface and there are many improvements made to features such as large folders and service widgets.
