How to use Gestures on Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro

1. Gestures 

The usual trio of Android softkeys – back, home, recent apps – is the default setup. If you would prefer Android Pie gesture control or Huawei’s Navigation dock interface: Feeling minimalist? Say goodbye to navigation keys, bars, and docks. Open Settings, go to System > System navigation and select Gestures.

Navigation gestures:

Home screen: Swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

Back: Swipe inward from the left or right edges.

Recent tasks: Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and hold.

2. HiTouch

This is Huawei’s contextual shopping concept. When activated, two thumbs pressed on-screen will capture what’s on-screen – Google Lens style – identify it and then open Amazon Assistant (this app has to be installed) to go shop for the item. Problem is, it doesn’t work very well at all.

3. Desktop mode

Yes, the Huawei Mate 30 can project to a screen, like a full-on computer.

4. Motion Control

There are three options that can be independently switched on, off or adjusted for deeper customization:

  • Flip to mute the phone when it’s ringing or the alarm is sounding.
  • Pick Up to reduce ring/alarm volume by lifting the device.
  • Raise to Ear which auto-answers calls.

5. Smart Assistance

One-handed UI, HiTouch, Voice Control, Gloves/Mistouch modes and Motion Control (with Knuckle Gesture) are accessible. Swipe down from the top of the home screen > hit the settings cog icon > select Smart Assistance.

6. Screen record

Capture your screen in real-time. Activated by tapping two knuckles twice on the screen or pressing-and-holding the power button and volume up key (not volume down as this will take a static screenshot). The resulting video is saved in your Files > Videos area.

7. Knuckle gestures

Found within Motion Control, this is a Huawei EMUI special. By using a hard knuckle to write on the screen rather than a softer finger, the second layer of commands can on-screen:

  • Double-tap for a screenshot (using one knuckle).
  • Draw where knuckle-drawn letters activate apps (C for Camera, M for music, and so forth – each can be customized from a fuller list of apps).
  • Split-screen gesture where a knuckle-drawn line across the screen when in an app screen will open the recent apps to the lower portion.
