The update to EMUI 10 is a big one. It includes a system-wide Dark Mode with UI adjustments to retain an optimal contrast between the text and background, more natural animations, and improved performance and security.
Huawei also touts that EMUI has a new UI taht “draws inspiration from the layout of magazines.” That means that titles are given a larger font and a grid system is used for the UI elements to help make it better to navigate through the UI. App icons have been given a better look, too, and Huawei says that the Camera app has been updated for better ease of use.
