Huawei Mate 9 was the first Huawei phone to run the new EMUI 5.0 user interface and since the new UI has seen inclusions in almost every Huawei phone running the Android Nougat. With the news of a new Android version in the works, the EMUI is also constantly updating as a 5.1 version is now available for users to update.

The EMUI 5.0 offers a simplified interface, smart design while providing a fantastic user experience. The new interface has seen under the hood improvements like better app launch speed but most importantly it provides numerous customization options.

EMUI 5.0 might look like the previous version but has seen a lot of fundamental changes giving the users a range of customization options such as AppTwin, Fingerprint app lock, and others.

Among other great features is the AppDrawer, which lets you arrange app icons and clear all the clutter from Home screen. Here’s how you can activate it.
