Honor 8 EMUI 4.1 VS 5.0

In this video, TK gives us a comparison between two Honor 8 phones. One device is running Android 6.0 with EMUI 4.1, while the other is running Android 7.0 with EMUI 5.0. So while the Nougat firmware for the Honor 8 is still in beta, let’s take a look at all the differences in the EMUI update.

Homescreen

When it comes to the homescreen, you’ll notice differences in the weather widget, updated icons, and the addition of an app drawer.

Notification Shade

The old notification shade was split into two sections for notifications and shortcuts. The update has everything in one section with a new black and blue color theme. You can now use features like “quick reply” right from your notification menu.

Split-Screen

Of course, since EMUI 5.0 comes with the nougat update, you’ll have the ability to run apps in split-screen mode.

Settings

A few new things have shown up in the settings menu. App twin is a feature that lets you setup multiple accounts for one app. The other cool new feature is the ability to set your preferred DPI setting right from your phone.
