When it comes to picking a smartphone that boasts of killer design and build, Huawei’s Mate 9 tops the chart. It is latest in the Mate series and aims to bring all signature elements to the table, and more. In addition, an upgraded version of the LEICA dual-camera setup from the P9 and major software upgrade makes it a wonderful choice. One’s search for a perfect display smartphone should end at Mate 9.
However, alike any other smartphone, it also contains some general problems that might make a denton your smartphone experience a bit. Let’s look at them and ways to wipe off them.
- Issues With Using Nova And Other Third-Party Launchers
There are only a few users that use third-party launchers and specifically Nova who noticed the device automatically, often after closing an app, switches back to the default stock launcher of EMUI. They then have to enter Settings and again set the third party launcher as the default one.
- There is something with the hyperactive RAM management and intrinsic battery saving features that sometimes kill any apps that run in the background. This is also found to be a source of notification bug.
- You can try locking it into the Recent Apps list. Some third party launchers, such as Nova, don’t show the launcher settings if you are using it. So first set the default launcher to the stock Huawei one. Then run Nova launcher and go to its settings. Tap the Recent Apps key and you should see the settings page. Press the small lock icon and lock it in place.
- Performance Issues
Many users have complained that the device lacks performance at various times and this seriously downgrades their overall smartphone experience.
- Get the Greenify app from the Google Play Store. Here, you can see a list of applications that are active on waking the phone and you can then modify the settings for these apps, which would reduce the slowdowns.
- There could be a bad app causing the problem. Boot the device in Safe Mode and check if problem persists. If not, it is clear that the problem is with the app. You can then either delete the last few apps you may have installed before the problem started, or perform a factory reset and start over, even though that is suggested only as the latest option, since all your data will be lost.
- Faster Battery Drain
Battery drain has become a big concern for many device users. In many cases, people complained that their device got out of juice in just 6-8 hours.
- Try to keep a track of the battery status to confirm if an app is causing the faster battery drain, and more often than not, that is going to be the case. In that case, the only option is to uninstall the app or to wait for an update. Another good option is likely to be available on the Google Play Store which you can use instead. In the case of the Huawei Mate 9, users have found that the battery drain appears to be caused by the Exchange email app, and in some cases, by Google Calendar sync problems.
