Top three mobile application threats

Emotional stability for fandroids

The UX uses Huawei’s tasteful lightweight Android skin, EmotionUI. This departs from the norm in only one serious way - the Android application grid button is hidden by default, and new applications are installed at the right end of the home screens - much as they are on iOS.

EmotionUI extends a handful of useful features and applications of its own - but not too many, and it doesn’t impair performance. So there’s a Phone Manager that cleans up memory and cruft left, and simplifies call-blocking and privacy features. There’s also a Do Not Disturb mode and a low-power dumb phone mode, which is very welcome. There’s also a simplified Launcher, which looks quite slick.
