The Honor 6X is easily one of the best deals you can get for a smartphone. Not only does it offer a good amount of hardware for the money, it’s practically packed to the brim with software features. Like the 5X before it, the Honor 6X is all Huawei. That means you’ll need to learn the special version of Android it’s running, a little something Huawei calls EMUI. 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
Sometimes you want to quickly search your smartphone for an app, or contact and the best way to do that, is directly from your home screen. Simply pull down anywhere on the home screen and begin typing. The Honor 6X will begin showing your results from the different apps installed on your device, along with various contacts (providing you’ve given the permission to access your contacts).
From there you can tap on the contact to pull up all the info, or select one of the shortcuts to call or message them. For apps, you can tap on the icon to immediately launch the app, or press the location icon where a quick animation will show you exactly where you can find it on your home screen. Since Huawei Home doesn’t have an actual app drawer, this could be a great way to locate an app that’s shuffled in with all the rest.
