In order to resist the sanctions imposed by the US government, Huawei has accelerated the layout of the Hongmeng system. Many people want to know how powerful the Hongmeng system is, and I also want to know. No, after 15 days of hard work, I finally successfully upgraded the bata3 version of the Hongmeng system, which is the last version of the developer version.
First of all, all the test data and experience in this article are from Based on HarmonyOS 126.96.36.199 (DEVC00E50R6P1patch01) GPU Turbo version, which is the last beta3 version of the developer version.
First introduce the overall HarmonyOS (Hongmeng System). First of all, HarmonyOS is a full-scene distributed system based on a microkernel, and it cannot be rooted to improve system security from the source. What is the difference between it and the Android system? The first is the hardware carrier. The Hongmeng system can be used not only on mobile phones, but also on many IOT devices such as automobiles, smart homes, smart watches, and so on. There is no need to write adaptation APP multiple times, and develop multiple adaptations at once! And Android is basically carried on mobile phones. The second is its powerful distributed capability. The Hongmeng system can reasonably allocate their computing capacity according to each device terminal, so as to achieve an effect of reducing power consumption.
HarmonyOS is not without its shortcomings, it is a new bornThe system does not have its own huge application ecosystem. In order to make up for this shortcoming, it adopts a method compatible with the Android system. The APP developed on the Android system can also run on the Hongmeng system. Unless the developer of the app has neither adapted on HarmonyOS nor on Android, HarmonyOS can always use the app.
The following is the text.
Let’s talk about the desktop that appears as soon as you enter the phone. The default desktop style has been changed, but you can freely choose different styles, whether you are OPPOUsers, Xiaomi users, or iPhone users can find desktop icons with similar styles. The desktop has the same drawer mode as OnePlus.
Some apps have a horizontal bar underneath, this represents the app The icon can slide up for some simple operations. For example, sliding on the Calendar APP can display calendars or other service cards, and you can select monthly calendars, schedules, and so on. Very convenient, this function draws on the advantages of Vivo’s new operating system, Huarongdao Grid, and does not occupy the desktop position. It does two things with one stone. The negative one screen directly imitates the Huarong grid mode of the new vivo system, but the size cannot be adjusted freely. You can also pull the negative one screen grid directly into the desktop.
Many apps will ask for a lot of unnecessary permissions. This time Huawei has also added a flares function similar to MIUI. APP calls privacy permissions will automatically appear in the status bar. Some people may say that it was a third-party app. This time, even the weather app that comes with it will be incorporated into the flares. Function inside.
The overall system still uses MIUI’s blank style extensively, and the layout in the settings is a bit more compact than EMUI11. The system default font seems to be thicker.
The system advertisement has not been seen yet. It should be because of the developer version. When the consumer uses the official version, the advertising interface should be opened. , But it is estimated that the overall number of advertisements will remain unchanged, neither will there be no advertisements at all, nor will it be as overwhelming as MIUI.
A pure mode has been added to the system to preventSoftware downloads apps randomly, this mode is a bit like iOS, if you don’t exit the pure mode, then in the app market Apps other than all apps cannot be installed. In the iOS system, you trust the app, and then you can install other apps in the app.
Many people like Xiaomi’s super wallpaper, this time the Hongmeng system Several live wallpapers have also been added, but they are not as powerful as Xiaomi’s. You can see them as a simplified version of Xiaomi’s super wallpapers.
Many people like to use the small window mode. This time the small window of HarmonyOS opens in addition to the side sliding and pauses, and the same method of entering from the background as MIUI has been added. . The size of the small window can also be adjusted by sliding the small window frame, and the position of the small window can be moved by the horizontal bar on the top of the small window.
Let’s talk about system fluency. The EMUI11 system still freezes and drops frames several times a day, but I have used the HarmonyOS system for so long, and only one frame has been stuck. The system fluency and stability have been greatly improved. This aspect is also the biggest advantage of iOS that iPhone users have always been proud of. This is only the developer version. When the official version is used by consumers, I believe it will become more stable and smooth.
The status bar is the place where I think I moved the most with the knife this time, because the status bar greatly affects the use. EMUI11 is free to choose to slide down to display the status bar or slide down on the left side of the screen to display a notification, and slide down on the right to display the control center. Now there is only the latter option.
Added control center Super terminal function. When you find a tablet, computer, smart screen, speaker and other super terminal equipment nearby, you can stream the screen image to it, or stream the audio separately, making you feel more shocked when watching videos and listening to music.
There are Huawei Hilink devices you are using under the control center. You can directly enter the control interface of the device for manipulation by clicking on them, and the headset can switch the noise reduction mode directly on it. Functions such as music playback are also integrated into the control center. When you have a computer, smart screen, earphone and other devices nearby, you can choose to directly let the music stream to any device to continue playing.
In the status barWiFi and Bluetooth The shortcut button of the is also changed to the same as MIUI, as long as you have connected to the WiFi/Bluetooth, you can quickly switch WiFi/Bluetooth in the status bar without opening the settings. I used to use the slide to directly call out the status bar. Now I am very uncomfortable with this. I want to see notifications and always enter the control center. I hope that consumers can choose the way to call out the status bar as before.
In addition to these operational logic and UI style changes, heat dissipation, battery life and The signal quality has also been significantly improved.
Let’s talk about heat dissipation first. I used four games:Primordial God, Peace Elite, Glory of the King, and Dragon Fantasy to test. Before these four games are full of special effects will become very hot, frame rate will also have a certain The degree of decline, but not obvious. After updating HarmonyOS (Hongmeng), the temperature of the four games after the full special effects has dropped significantly compared to before the update. The previous four games all felt hot, but now they only feel warm, but the top middle frame is as hot as ever.
Next look at battery life. After playing for a whole morning (8.30-11.45), the power consumption of the mobile phone will be as high as 50%. After updating the HarmonyOS, the power consumption is only 44%in the same morning, and the power consumption is reduced by more than 17%on average! The above are based on the daily use environment test, only using software such as Weibo, Memo, Baidu, JD, WeChat, and not using game software, short video software, video software and other such software.
Of course, in order to take care of those who like to play games and vibrato For the student party, I also tested the power consumption of games and short video software. The result is that before the update, the power consumption of King Glory in one hour is 24%(open 90hz high refresh rate), no The power consumption of high brushing is 16%, and the power consumption of Douyin per hour is 12%. After the update, I played two sets of Glory of the Kings, and used it for half an hour. It took about 1.5 hours and consumed 19%of the battery. The Glory of Kings did not turn on the high refresh rate of 90hz. Later I tested it again to turn on the high refresh rate. The power consumption is less than 4%in 12 minutes. According to the test data before the update, the Hongmeng system playing games and refreshing short videos is indeed more power saving Yes, it saves about 14-16%of electricity.
But the power consumption and image quality of playing the glory of the king The frame rate is related to the heroes used. Heroes who use high-frequency tapping on the screen like the shooter consume more power. The two games I play are both play aids. The test data is for your reference only. It can be seen that the Hongmeng system is indeed more power-saving, and I estimate that the average power-saving is at least 13%.
Finally talk about the signal aspect. There are many factors that affect the signal, so I am not sure if the signal is really better. The following experience is for your reference only. I enter a building where thousands of people enter and exit at the same time almost every day. The previous EMUI11 experience without updating HarmonyOS is like this. The overall signal is very good, but from time to time there will be the following situation:5G signal is not working, and it is normal after changing to 4G signal; 4G signal is not working, and it is normal again after changing to 5G signal. After updating HarmonyOS, the number of times has been reduced by more than 60%. In the past, the signal needs to be switched five or six times in the morning. After HarmonyOS is updated, it is usually switched once or twice in the morning. Sometimes it is not even necessary to switch at all, and the 5G signal is always full! And after I updated HarmonyOS, it has been raining in the past few days, so the overall signal quality will be worse.
This time the Hongmeng system combines with major mobile phone manufacturers on the market Many styles and advantages of the company have gathered the best of hundreds of families. Users of various platforms will not have too high learning costs when they transfer to the Hongmeng system. I believe that the experience of the Hongmeng system will get better and better in the future.
