Nowadays, we’re close to our smartphones than ever and this close partnership could bring some eye fatigue powered by Blue light. However, there’s a feature called Eye comfort that is pre-blended on Huawei EMUI to save your eyes, adding to this, we’ll also compare it with the Samsung One UI counterpart.

Although, smartphone makers are enhancing the display panel for the best quality possible but blue light emissions cannot be stopped.

Digital Eyestrain:

Using devices up close or for long periods can lead to digital eyestrain. Research has shown that when people use computers, laptops, and other digital devices, they tend to blink less often than normal. Fewer blinks can mean less moisture. Digital eyestrain means different things to different people but is generally related to the focusing system of the eyes.

Eye comfort:

A blue light filter decreases the amount of blue light displayed on the screen of the device, which can suppress the production of the sleep-inducing hormone, so filtering it out can help you sleep better. It will also help you to reduce digital eye strain.

Coming to the comparison, both Huawei EMUI and Samsung One UI come with eye comfort features and it’s time that we look into the aspects.

Eye Schedule:

Once enabled, the feature overlaps the screen for the entire time until you turn it off manually.

Level:

A slider is available on both software that filters out blue light to reduce eye fatigue, you can slide it left or right to increase/reduce the filter strength.

Flicker reduction:

Only Huawei EMUI comes with a flicker reduction feature, and as the name reflects, the option helps you to reduce flickering on the screen. This will affect color balance and auto-brightness control.

I like to listen to music, sing, dance, and play outdoor games. I have a huge interest in reading novels and cooking. I'm good enough as a speaker. Besides, I have the willingness to learn new things and increase my knowledge in different aspects with full dedication and determination.

Samsung One UI 5 quick settings needs improvements similar to EMUI 12

Published

on

Samsung One UI 5 is the latest mobile software based on Android 13 but the software is making slow progress for a better user experience as compared to Huawei EMUI 12.

One UI 5 is one of the most low-approved software and it lacks innovation as well as smoothness. Don’t take my word for it, if you have a Samsung phone, you may like it ‘a bit’ but if you have a Huawei phone or even an iPhone then, you may want Samsung to kick in some new efforts.

Currently, Samsung is busy sending One UI 5 software to old devices. As compared to One UI 4.1, Samsung has made some changes in the user interface and a few in the features section. However, these changes are teeny tiny on the surface.

For instance, Samsung One UI 5 quick settings are similar to One UI 4.1. There is a small change that is powered by Android 13’s Material You design and the rest of the UI and functionality remain the same.

To access One UI 5 quick settings, you can swipe down from the top and swipe again to open the full panel. On the top tray, you will get key features of search, power, and settings, as well as edit.

Followed by a large space for time and date and followed by device control and media output manager. The bottom section includes SIM manager options, quick access icons, and a brightness slider. These are the same old features that were available in One UI 4.1.

On the other hand, EMUI 12 renovated the user experience for Huawei smartphone users. The Control Panel (quick settings) combines a number of new features and services that weren’t there before.

The control panel brings simplicity at hand. Starting from the top section, the phone could use it to control WiFi, Bluetooth connected device way better than One UI 5. There’s a media controller that will allow you to manage playback

Do you think that’s the end of the story? Nope, because Huawei EMUI 12 quick settings enable audio projection to broadcast music on different devices all at once.

The EMUI 12 control panel has quick settings icon section, which has big dials than Samsung One UI 5. Talking about creativity, EMUI 12 further outshines One UI 5 with its Super Device and Smart Device controllers.

Samsung is free to brag about smartphone sales in the global market but when it comes to features and user experience, One UI 5 is still far away.

What do you think, Samsung One UI 5 has better quick settings or EMUI 12? Let us know via the tweet below.

Home screen and layout:

HarmonyOS 3 brings a new auto-layout feature that allows you to restructure the home screen content based on the original layout. Or you can sort by color or just by category.

However, Android 13 has no feature to manage the screen layout. This is quite disappointing.

App snippets:

One of the most innovative features of HarmonyOS 3 is its App Snippet. The feature allows you to open key features of an application without opening the app first. Once again, Android 13 don’t give such access to the feature.

Large folders:

Huawei introduced large folders with HarmonyOS 2 and HarmonyOS 3 gets you a new range of layouts. Large folders is a real innovation and several Chinese phone makers have copied this feature from Huawei.

However, stock Android 13 lacks it but the software does follow the traditional app folder instead.

Service widgets – stacked, grouped:

Service widgets enable you to preview app info and access app features. However, HarmonyOS 3 gets you additional gifts such as group and stack widgets. Android 13 also lets you add app and service widgets but it doesn’t offer you the same level of compatibility as HarmonyOS 3.

However, you can resize the widgets similar to large folders by stretching anchors, which looks pretty neat.

Control Panel and Quick Settings:

HarmonyOS 3 has one of the best quick settings on all smartphones. This has various services such as Audio Control Panel, Shortcuts, Super Device, Smart scenario manager, and smart device control. With HarmonyOS 2, Huawei introduced a separate space for notifications but the company improved the control panel and notification center with this upgrade.

Similar to Android 12, stock Android 13 follows the tile-powered quick settings. These are pretty big tiles (easy to tap) with a brightness controller, edit button, and shortcut for the Settings menu. However, I recognize that the virtual power button on Android devices is missing on HarmonyOS.

Settings:

HarmonyOS 3 has a colorful combination of icons and text and the background card container enhances the overall view. On the other hand, Android 13 has its own specialty provided by Material You and it makes the entire user interface interesting.
