Will the new Huawei Ascend 5w come with Huawei's EMUI?


#1

Do all their phones come with that user interface? Anyone with have any experience with it? Little hesitant to take a dive into that. I see from a review the Honor 5x only comes with 9.6 GB storage after the default apps, that’s pretty tight.

Thanks

Being not yet released but soon I don’t know anyone knowing that answer yet. On a hunch I would say yes to Huawei’s EMUI, but don’t quote me. 5.4GB is plausible for a phone with factory installed apps. Some Moto phones are 4.+GB for the OS install and apps. On a 16GB phone it’s fine but a 8GB phone it won’t leave much left in the memory. In my Opinion all 8GB phones are useless except using as a phone only and disabling all unused apps. The 8GB phones will eventually get real slow if the apps keep getting updated

Thanks, ya kind of figured as much. Seems strange there is virtually no info on this phone 6 days before it is available. Maybe not stange, I don’t know.

I’m using a Moto G 3 right now, it has 11.8 GB of free storage. Tough call for me. Not a fan of the bigger phones, less storage, but it’s nicer “looking” and comes with 6 months of free service. Hmmm

Yes it uses EMUI

If you pop a MicroSD card in and use it as adoptable internal storage that would make sufficient room I would hope.


#6

Do you know if it will be EMUI 5.0?

Probably the latest greatest update available.

Well I hope so. So far it seems that EMUI 5 comes with Nougat, and this phone has Marshmallow by spec. So I’m not so sure. EMUI - previous versions - are too far away form standard stock Android for my taste.
