Huawei's Emotion 3.0 UI gets leaked; flatter look taken from iOS 7

Huawei's Emotion 3.0 UI gets leaked; flatter look taken from iOS 7
Huawei's Emotion 3.0 has been leaked, revealing a flatter, less glossy UI. This look started with iOS 7 as the Jony Ive inspired design did away with the bright vivid colors and the skeuomorphic designs favored by former iOS chief Scott Forstall and the late Steve Jobs. The dialer on the new UI is as simple as can be, with a plain white background.

The font on Emotion 3.0 is different, and we can assume other changes are in place as well, such as transitions. When you compare this to the previous iteration of Emotion, you can see the more pastel-like colors used on the newer UI.

Since this is just a leak, we don't have any official word on when we might see Emotion 3.0 UI first in use on a Huawei device. Looking at the size of the Settings page, this could be for a large-screened flagship model. The recently released Huawei Honor 6 uses Emotion 2.3 UI.

Cheap looking, and icon design is terrible. Color palette too.

Looks like what an iOS user would have wanted iOS 8 with widgets to be...

Items like wallpapers icons fonts etc are customization within the theme app that comes with the EMUI skin (and all China OS skins). Its unimportant at this stage as 100s of themes available online.

Germany deserved it in the end. They played better in extra time. Messi still the best ever!

Messi won four man of the match awards, had the most dribbles out of any player. Had four goals. Took his team to the final. Had the best pass accuracy of any player and the most ball possession. Didn't lose or draw a single match in the tournament, except the final, and you're telling me he didn't deserve it? There's a lot more that goes into becoming a player of the tournament than just goals and assists.

argentina didnt deserve to be in finals. they even didnt deserve to be in semifinals. i dont know what kind of magic happened that they beat belgium and netherlands. but i dont think that argentina deserved to win anything since they beat miserable iran with a lot of effort and with only 1 goal

derserve lol, they deserved to be there. they played other teams fare and square, and made their way through. germnany won by 7 to 1 from brazil.and look at argentina. that gave germnany a tough time. germany nonetheless is a better team. but its not by chances that argentina got to finals. they worked for it.

Even though it looks similar to iOS, you should at least mention Windows Phone.

Flat UI was started by Windows Phone within software.

infact, emotion ui has an option to change the interface to look like windows ui

From the virtual buttons I'll guess that any new Huawei phone with Android L will ship with this
