It's a great tablet but--no system updates. So you're stuck with Android 8 and EMUI 8.

ADMS, 25 Mar 2019Anyone use 3rd party launcher? Does it automatically change... moreI use nova launcher on Huawei Y360 phone that has KitKat (4.4.2)
I only white listed nova in its built-in app killer (in newer androids they moved it to power saving options I heard)

I don't know if in newer huawei devices they always come back to default launcher or not but in my phone it don't get back to default launcher.

Although I did the above to achieve that I think. (I don't remember because I changed it two years ago)

HIya. I'm interested to know about the current EMUI 9.0 (and the supposed newer EMUI 9.1) of the Mediapad M5 tablet.
Some of my other questions:
1 Is there a full systemwide dark mode?
2 Is there a swipe up to reveal the apps tray? (hate the apps tray icon and the traditional 3 nav buttons on the bottom of the screen)
3 Any enhancements to the audio?
4 IS there a Night Mode or blue light filter?
5 Is there a Chromecast support now? Or do we have to download a 3rd-party app?
6 Can we still install 3rd-party launchers?
7 A way to change the RGB colour gamut of the screen?
8. Does it support fast charging?
Many thanks.
