If you’re new to Huawei or Honor devices — don’t worry. This incredibly massive list of tips and tricks will help you get well acquainted with some of the best software features the Honor 6X has to offer.
Start here: 16 things every Honor 6X user should do
Whether you’re having a romantic dinner with the Mrs, or curled up on the couch watching a movie, sometimes you just don’t want any interruptions from the outside world — that includes your smartphone. You can always unlock the phone and use the volume buttons to silence your device, forgetting to re-enable your volume settings can be a big headache.
An easy way to silence your phone temporarily is by taking advantage of the Honor 6X’s Motion Gestures. Also known as flip-to-mute, resting your Honor 6X face down on the screen will tell your device to mute all sounds and stop the vibration motor from buzzing when receiving calls and/or alarms/timers.
Flipping your device over again, will deactivate this feature, allowing all audible notifications to come through. It can be pretty convenient during meetings or when watching a movie.
You can find flip-to-mute by opening the Settings app > Smart assistance > Motion Controls > Flip > toggle on/off.
