First 5 things you should do with your Huawei Mate 20 Pro
1) BRING BACK THE APPS MENU
Go to Settings > Home Screen & Wallpaper, then tap on Home Screen Style. You’ll see options for Standard and Drawer. For long-term Android’ers like us, the Drawer mode definitely feels more “standard” to us.
2) HIDE THE NOTCH
Go to Settings > Display > More Display Settings > Notch to find the option to banish the poor old notch.
3) SETUP THE IN-SCREEN FINGERPRINT SCANNER
Settings > Security & Privacy > Fingerprint ID. You just have to press your finger into the screen a bunch of times.
4) USE SMART REMOTE TO REPLACE YOUR TV REMOTE
The pre-installed Smart Remote app is dedicated to this feature. Fire it up and you can search Huawei’s own directory of TVs, cameras, projectors, set-top boxes and more. This app even lets you create your own mutant virtual remote, stitching together controls from a whole bunch of real-world ones by teaching the Mate 20 Pro commands button-by-button.
5) TRY OUT DARK MODE, FOR BETTER BATTERY LIFE
You’ll find “dark mode” in Settings > Battery, under the Darken Interface Colours option.
