The new EMUI 5.0, Huawei claims, is more efficient, secure, and user friendly. It “significantly cuts down on the number of steps needed to achieve the desired function,” the company says in a press release, adding that “furthermore, the user can reach 90% of the core functions in just two to three clicks.”

The new UI also lets users choose between the standard layout and an app drawer. “Additionally, users can jump between their professional and personal lives effortlessly with profiles now being able to run in parallel no switching of phones necessary.”

Coming back to the update, those rocking a Huawei P9, P9 Plus, P9 Lite or Mate 8 will be able to participate in the beta testing as well.

It is obvious for a sammy to get bug fixes till its death. People have too much greed and unnecessarily getting disappointed . You want cheap,durable,high spec phone and want others to worship that phone as well. Buy whatever you like.
