HarmonyOS is a top-notch Huawei operating system that deserves to be at the top of the world of mobile software systems. On the other hand, EMUI 12 has been introduced with a user interface that perfectly copies HarmonyOS in many aspects, including the Control Panel features.
As global users really want to know the differences between these two software. There, we are going to shed some light on this subject by showing you what it is really about by putting EMUI 12 and HarmonyOS software side by side for the Control Panel functionality.
What is the Control Panel:
The control panel on new Huawei devices takes the most common settings or options and puts them on your phone’s home screen, allowing you to manage things in a simple way.
Let’s start our comparison with HarmonyOS 2.
The HarmonyOS Control Panel consists of four parts of the user interface: Media, Hotkey Switches, Super Device Manager, and Smart Device Controller.
Accessing the Control Panel is quite simple, you just need to open the Control Panel by swiping from the upper right side of the screen.
As for the sections, the media controls let you manage media audio playback on the device itself, switch audio apps, or switch playback to a connected audio device. The shortcut controls, enables, disables or sets frequently used features at your fingertips.
The Super Device section allows you to manage and control all of your connected HarmonyOS smart devices. Finally, smart device control allows you to manage devices associated with the AI Life app.
The control panel lets you change switches, hide super devices, and change devices for maximum usability.
When you look at EMUI 12, you will see a direct copy of HarmonyOS Control Panel functionality, as it looks the same. Meanwhile, there is one change you will see and it is the new Device+ panel instead of Super Device. Although you can use a similar editing feature with the Control Panel in HarmonyOS.
As you can see, there is not much difference between the two software but you can surely give your own opinion about it.
