So far I can go without charging 2 days and that's with pretty excessive use, but what's excessive to me can be something very different for others. The phone comes with a good enough battery manager so no need IMO with any extra app for that specific task. It's very easy to get the overview that's needed. From a security point of view that's also important as less installed apps, the better.

The phone does lack wireless charging and even if I didn't always used it on my previous phone, I do think a phone in this range should have that option.

Security for eyes. :D I'm in general a fan of Dark mode and enabled it as much as possible but was a bit surprised with the Outlook app.

Installed HiSuite on PC. Thats Huaweis own device manager for things like backups, recovery, file management etc. The explorer option is more then good enough IMO. The built-in HiSuite on the phone is a collection of tools, guides and recommendations. For example a specific maintenance mode. It locks and prevents access to photo, contacts, messages and other personal information during a Service.



Cons : Was very slow when it backup Apps.

Pros : Encryption for backups.

Applock, a general security feature in Android I guess. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Anyone else using or tested? Seems it has some sort of delay on certain apps or at least works after a reboot. Also noted that the shortcut on one app was protected but not the main file. :unsure: That was again fixed with a reboot.

Perhaps vendor related but feels a bit inconsistent.

Factory reset ( hard reset ) tested. Took about 2 minutes and the rest with the use of HiSuite like 10. Backup now fully Verified. Several app accounts still had to be configured and one app re-installed. F-Secure SAFE I only needed to do a login and enable the Finder feature. Manually started the VPN and after a check that both those layers was set for automatic start, a reboot confirmed it.

That's nuts you've got like a full backup for your Android. I back up all my important data, but a system backup would be extra cool.

Updated to EMUI version 9.0.0.203.

Includes updated Android Security patch : 01 February 2019.


Google Play was after the update for unknown reasons not fully working, but easy fixed by manually close inside settings/app and restart the app.
