Reviews From google play store

Keeps attempting to download update. Takes forever, gets half way through and then crashes and restarts. Then tells me there was an error and wants to start over again. Even though I've disabled the notifications and the overnight install it still tries to do it every night. It's driving me mental trying to find a solution. Which doesn't seem to exist.

Dear Huawei. I don't know why, but on Mate 10 Pro devices an update from EMUI 8 to 9 never (!) works out. It always (!) results in a factory reset and the erasing of all data. And sometimes it even destroys the devices completely. My family has had several Mate 10 Pro devices, so I can talk out of experience. Please resolve this problem, because it's a real pain in the ass for some consumers, since these devices aren't cheap.

This app came pre-installed on my Huawei Mate 10 Pro. It seemed to work fine, but now I get a warning/message that the app is not compatible with my device. I contacted the developer by email but no response thus far. What happens now is the phone keeps on trying to download the same update, even after I've "successfully installed" the update, or that's what the phone tells me. But even after it telling me the update has been installed "successfully" I keep getting a notification in System that the same update is available again. It seems like this app is the culprit.

Keeps coming up with "System Update keeps stopping" messages! Looked at the settings of this essential app and found "Change System Settings" set to NOT ALLOWED! Changed it to "Allowed" and gave Phone Permission as well... Went and checked for system updates, there it was 14 days old! Updated, at the end of the update, error message pops up again! I left it alone for a minute until the Update finished notification. This app needs a fix! (New S10e)

hello... Please handle... My phone is Medele P20 Pro... But the phone's raw Android was 8... But now, I've got a brush, and I've been downloading 4 times, and every 4 times the phone is not installed, and everytime the update operation of the method is done, I still have the update before, and I now have 8 GB of internet spent this work, but still my phone hasn't been updated... Please address and solve my problem

It just update everything and my phone will damage from it its heavier than I thought it will be and I just can't stop it every time I try to fix this problem my phone have more damage than I thought and I wanna download games to play with my friends but it update and update if I can Uninstall it I will but unlucky I can't

I decided to update my phone from EMUI 8 to 9.1 on my Huawei Mate 20 Lite and the Dark Mode feature that was available in the previous version has been taking off in this one. It was simple but neat I don't like my settings bar to be so white hopefully the re-add this feature to the new version of EMUI

I loved the Samsung keyboard, but now suddenly the option of a number pad has been taken away. It was perfect, now it isn't...

What's so nice about this months security update gave me 3 random apps after installation. Netflix, Wego, and Vigo are nice apps when I saw them after updating the software. I'm still giving 4 stars for now because I still have oreo for y7 prime 2019. I would give 5 stars if there is Emui 9 for it too. Also thanks for giving me free aps as I mentioned earlier, huawei is the best!

What the hell, I decide to install the latest update and how slow it was. Too big of an install 3.07gb and had read the things it'll do but COME-ON change my app style and most of all CHANGE MY LOCK SCREEN PIN NUMBERS TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN, before this they were NICELY in the centre of the screen and could unlock with just one hand now HAVE TO USE 2 HANDS one to hold my phone and the other to unlock the pin. DON'T LIKE THIS CURRENT VERSION YOU HAVE PLACED UPON PPL FOR THEIR PHONES.

Sometimes it says there's no updates even if I manually recheck it, but after I restart the device then it says that there is actually an update. The updates themselves are good and install quickly on Honor 8X.

I now rate 1 star due to my phone now lag af even after doing a phone reset. The main issue here are after updating the Phone System it now becomes worse. Touchscreen issue on freezing about 10sec and sometimes when I run an app it shows message like "Application not responding, would you wait or force close the running application" before this doesn't pop up. But after many updates my phone now lags and it's annoying. Help me rollback phone to its stock version to enjoy the phone's performance.

I haven't had the latest update. My husband and I have the same phone but different networks and he had the update a while ago and it is affecting the functionality off my phone.

It turns off my alarm! After every update, it fails to complete a full restart and needs my access code to unlock. My alarms and everything else turn off until I wake up and check my phone. I'm going to lose my job because of this garbage service! Every time it asks if I want to update, it checks the box asking to let it run at night automatically. This is not acceptable. You can't nearly ruin people's lives for minor "device security" updates every week or two!

The most useless app. I never received an update for EMUI software yet everyone else does. This is the first and last time I will own one of your products. After almost 2 years and a half I'm still on the factory version and you guys didn't even try pushing an update for my cellphone. I don't normally leave reviews especially negative ones but you guys deserve my negative feedback.

Very poor app. This phone does not have enough space for the update it forces me to sea remind me later to every time I use the Internet. It is not fair it is literally forcing me to update with a version which I factory reset with the intention not to install the update and I cannot do anything about it. Please fix this with an app update and not a system update. Without this bug, this phone would be for everyday use. Also stop with the constant weekly updates because i have no space for it.

I have a HUAWEI P Smart. And i have turned auto update off. And when i leave it open. (Phone) new phone version available. AUTO INSTALLS THE UPDATE. And i get that notification every time i open my screen for more than 5 fricking minute

Doesn't deserve the 1 star!! It's anoying!! Won't stop coming up with updates, I blocked notifications a d yet they still appear. Unable to uninstall the app, it has hidden permissions which is wrong!!

It drain battery faster than ever. I'm using Mate 20 Pro and I charge full and leave it for few hour and it drain 7% of the power without any usage.

Keeps annoying me, I keep stopping it, but it comes back on if you battery runs low and shuts down

In the latest update there's a little bug when the keyboard shows up it blinks like several times and you have to press again the part where you want to type something. It can also be found when you watch videos in the video app. Please fix asap thanks!

I am giving it one star because the emui 9 sucks. The microphone is not working in earphones, the screen recorder sucks and damn laggy, there's no settings for screen recording like fps settings, video quality settings and all. Regret switching from Redmi to Honor. Huawei should learn a lot from Xiaomi Redmi's in delivering quality products to their customers. Overall I want a better update with better softwares in my Honor 10.

This app has done nothing but crash and cause my phone to lag ever since the update even after restarting it will crash 2x just loading

1. GPS detection/location accuracy is worse for each update. 2. Phone hang whenever trying to make a call

After upgraded to my phone is hanging its a worst experience... Can u please roolback this or release fix for this version.... My phone is lagging too much even I have 69% of free internal space. Even camera is not getting open its take 15-20 seconds or something my phone gets hang.... Pleas do needful

After the previous update the battery depletes much faster! So I don't even think in doing this one.

This app is awful I received an update of about 3.20gb nd I was able to download up to 60% then I changed network and it had started from the beginning 0%... Like why..??

Each update takes so much more room and no improvement, just worse system functionality. I'm not impressed. I'll be switching back to Samsung again, I hate huewei and all the terrible system updates and just overall phone.

Bloody incessant update reminders and you can't disable or uninstall. It's my device. Sod off interfering with it!

Not happy with update, keeps popping up with "System Update has Stopped" weeks after latest update, this is most annoying!! Please fix this.

Apps keep crashing mid way through me using them. EMUI won't update eventhough I've tried to upload it. I went to get the phone fixed and I was told that everything is ok with it but it still won't update and apps still keep crashing.

Terrible app has crashed two phones, had to replace two new phones, it says system update not working, and no one knows what to do.

It was good...until after a year of having it, and it stopped having updates.,

there are many problems with this device...after updating system I don't receive my all messages send from anyone...there is msg problem and also it doesn't work with aap Lock... please resolve this issue

Please Google Play.. Update it to latest version for updating system of my huawei y6 2018. The current system of my phone is so very very laggy and i want you to back its latest version. TIA

Latest update has messed up my phone. Apps keep freezing and I have to keep restarting the phone. Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

Constantly getting the message system update stopped working. Constantly asking for feedback. Constantly give feedback. constantly getting the same message. What's the point of it all??!!?

You need to respect the "ignore battery optimization" settings. You claim you have stopped using your aggressive task killing that you and other Chinese manufacturers utilize but that is a lie. There are several apps, eg google maps, that are always killed if the screen isn't on. I have tried all thinkable combinations of settings but nothing prevents your extreme battery savings settings for certain apps, but weirdly not all apps.

emui 9 lags too much after latest update 15/6/2019 ( on Nova 3. the previous version was better. hope that itll solve soon because it made WA,YT, FB, Insta and all the games lag.

My freezes and apps stop working and close without any notice.

Functionality has decreased markedly since the last update. Apps are misfunctioning and inbuilt functions have also changed. Some warning that this may happen BEFORE updating would have been good.

keep having system update error message every 30 seconds and then goes away for a day, then back to error again.

I got Two updates for my Honor 8..!! One is August security patch and other oreo update.!! First my device got updated with August security patch..!! After that update my device got logged out from Huawei ID. I tried Logging in.. but no use it says server busy.!! I contacted you via email multiple times.. but no use.!! Now my device is not showing oreo update.!! Please help..!!!

Huawei updates non intrusive. Android updates removed ability to reset phone to factory settings, and phone will no longer connect with older Bluetooth devices. Bottom line, Android remains junk and chasing IOS.

The latest update makes my phone can't project to my smart TV. Not sure if this is the reason. Please find the bug!

Poor service. Love Huawei phones, but the lack of updates for them is concerning. I have a SIM free P10 Plus - Android 8.0 was released in Feb 2018 for this device, it's now October and no sign of it. My guess? They have abandoned legacy devices now that the P20 is out. Unlikely my next device will be a Huawei, which is a shame.

was working great but need the new update. 9.1 like my p20 pro used to be awesome but its now been hacked due to the lack of updates!

I cannot update this app at all. I am in the UK and play store thinks I am in USA. My husband's system has updated. App will not respond to manual request or auto timed to update. Can you help?

Lastly update my mobile 9.1.0. 130 this update quickly drain the battery please bug fix

I updated this app in the hope it would allow me to update the firmware of my P10. The app update has resolved nothing, still no security updates since July 2017 and no Oreo update either. Come on Huawei, you and your network partners sell us top of the range hardware and screw us over when it comes to firmware updates, this isn't acceptable.

I own the mate 9 and so far I already took every single update that is being released for this phone . No problems at all . People complaining about updates that they didn't receive yet but probably those updates not being released yet for their phones be patient if is there you will get it sooner or later . Do some research not every phone in every country will get them the same time !

Bloody Awful! I don't ever ever ever want updates and cannot find how to stop these on Android. I know ALL the arguments on WHY everybody should update all the time and STILL don't want them EVER. You people are intrusive to an unacceptable degree. I'd - frankly, for sooner an application ceased working than update it - whatever your invented excuse - so why do you go to so much trouble to make sure I can't stop updates? These and you don't work, insist, drive updates in order to benefit me!

Very good and easy to ues everything is clear and straight forward.

No indication of expected updates. No feedback mechanism.

My galaxy note 10 plus 5 G its just new and system update keeps stopping please fix it.

Why do they have to give people updates that will only make their phones problematic? What they best can do is to remove all those crazy updates and change them to better updates before the creators display them here on playstore.

Amazing, works perfectly with my Samsung Galaxy J5 2015 running AOSP!

Last system update on 20 march 2019 is freeking me out.. The phone eventually gets hang after every 30 sec for 5 sec and then get back to normal... I am using honor 9 lite. As soon i tab the o sign for home page.. Google assistant pops up. This is really tiring. Plzz bare me with this as soon possible. 😥😔😖

The new update to the system is so bad. Everything is in weird shapes and it runs so slowly

I can't setup the default launcher after the latest update. Please fix this issue with a patch or upgrade EMUI for a better experience with gestures like swipe down for notifications, etc. Thanks for your consideration in advance. Otherwise the phone huawei mate 10 is amazing with the hardware.

On the next update, please remove the defragmentation tool. Android runs perfectly well without it.

Believe that there has been a number of missed updates for the Huawei P10 plus. Mine shows Android whereas it should be on Android or depending on location. This recent update doesn't appear to have fixed the non-detection problem of recent months.

Every day 3-5 times ask for download new update! Uh tired me!!!

After installing the updated version I am unable to accept the incoming phone calls.

Please fix quick settings (status bar) menu on honor 7c, it act like a rubber band when open while phone is locked, doesn't stay open, and change its color rest of the phone has white background except quick settings menu change it to white so it look like rest of theme scheme

Since the latest update to Android 9, some of my theme function couldn't work. I've purchased this theme, Deep Blue. The drop down words and contact words couldn't be seen. Please fix this ASAP. Thank you.

Every single phone reset on A50 the app crashes upon launch. This isnt very helpful and raises concerns!

this is a very good app,but it needs to be updated so that phone's stays always updated

fix it!! my apps keep crashing and even my old phone can open some of the ones that this new one just crashes. I can't use two apps at the same time with one of them not lagging or stop forzing. This system has so many holes. Fix it!!

Recent update installed Sonic Runner game though I have never used or played any games. It refuses to uninstall. Honor team plz check this rogue app

Apps crashing... (can't open Gmail or Huawei email apps... As soon as I open them they crash..) phone occasionally lags.... The one great thing so far is the camera.... Much better now than it used to be....

could you please rearrange the icons in the status bar😊 like put the clock beside the signal of cellular data and leave the other side with battery and other notifications😁 and the last thing can you add color to the icons in the status bar

after one year this emui doesn't update. even the new coming mobiles have same ram and processor. and new updates are only for new mobile. this is where samsung and Apple are far ahead. they don't leave customer support unattended.

The way Huawei do everything they can to make you update is disgraceful. How dare you use 4 GB of my bandwidth on a daily basis for an unwanted update and then bombard me with popups to install it. Stop copying Apple! I had to resist upgrading to Android 9 due to owning essential third party apps. These relied on APIs that were removed in 9. I tried disabling every permission and notification for this app, but it always found a way around it. I finally solved it by using USB debugging + adb shell + pm uninstall --user 0 Now this app/service does not appear anywhere on my phone and the updates portion of the settings menu has vanished.

Keeps crashing. And the phone is new.......

Still I haven't got any security patch or update after June security patch for my P9(L19). The device is very good. But disappointed about software updates. Was hoping I'll get Android Oreo and now not even receiving security patches.

I love it, we have a free themes, wallpaper & other etc.

What is this? Is this bug or its just me?? Every time e recieve updates on my 7x it wont pop up on my screen like just like nothing.. It only show if i will manually go to settings and check for updates

I want back my money. I loses too much money cause I have to pay for the work I have done so far. I have attached my invoice for the work. Please help me. The application crashes n slower cause of these update version

Would be higher but there is not security update even after I've contacted support team.. Can't find help on how to do it and still had no reply.. And don't get me started on the lack of themes from the theme app. Sort it out then you get 5 start..

i just received this new samsung device (A70) and am using it for the first time today. all seems working except for this system update. i receive multiple notifications that the system is crashing midway. shall i worry?

Honor 8X, great phone but Honor please fix Gmail problem. I set a different tone for Gmail but it still defaults to the Bongo tone. And Gmail alerts won't vibrate despite it being turned on.

Been checking for 2 years straight no updates not even security patches

I'm not getting the google security patch of May onwards. What is the problem?

Totally frod cheater 2.85 GB to get update frod without any resume or pause option automatically downloads when I on data frod

I hope to aee the Emui 9.1 update with the following fixes: 1- fix the animations lagging 2- fix the download progress disappearing in the notification bar as while downloading anything from the store, the download is working but not showing me the percentage in the status bar

This app is the most filthy f *** app on the app store, I'd like to be kissed first before I am f**** by this app. Its f**** horrendous that I cannot update my phone over mobile data and that everyday it asks me to update and can't. I have an unlimited data connection. As a software developer and IT specialist I cannot find any reasonable excuse that updates are "WiFi only", come on!! For what reason? All the developers need to do is just verify the file after downloading. LEARN TO CODE!!!

Since i bought this mobile.. And its first Update to Now every time many features like accessing to fonts applying and theme manager so many features are stopped working.!! Like what the hell I don prefer this mble!!

Why? If I'm using my phone is cutting even in Facebook they come back in normal if I play also it's desame but all apps is up to date

The app is useless because Huawei is terrible at releasing updates. Its been 3 months since they released an update for my phone (nova3i). This is the first and last huawei phone I'll buy.

When system updates complete an error show its a waste of mbs and your time nothing advantange

After i upgrade my system to the latest version. I cant send or upload photos and video using facebook, messenger or even skype. Theres an error " errror loading media". How can i fix this??

After updated, my internet not working on facebook, instagram, and google. which is my facebook and Instagram cannot refresh to new feeds.

huwaei is an awesome company .. all my family members have there phones , great job and keep up the good work .. but there's one issue in huwaei phone's .. the updates are rare and some phones never received any updates.

Hi. thanks for everything but my android version is still on 7.0 and it doesn't have new version (9) but on other devices it's different Please help me

I'm sorry this is JUST a request but i would like the ability to add extra folders in the safe!

I have p8 lite 2017 pra-lx2c636b186 and i downloaded the firmware finder foun that i have a compatible update for my device, but when i try to update it via proxy in the settings there is no available update.

Keeps telling me to update even though am only at PREPAID. MOBILE. DATA. Annoying. I dont want to spend money every update (they're too big).

Since updated, there is some lag in my phone. Like half second lagging. Please fix this problem Huawei.

C636 141 came as pop up but had short data so went to home to update via WiFi but the update was not there. It vanished.
