The HONOR smartphone ecosystem is still new. Also, to make it easier, Huawei and HONOR recently launched a new widget, Petal Search . This widget, to put it simply, will be used to find the right apps that are available but not necessarily on the AppGallery yet. This is the case for example for Facebook, Instagram or even WhatsApp which, not only, are available on application stores but also at their own address.
If the AppGallery continues to expand day by day not everything is available yet and with Petal Search it will be easier to find all your favorite apps. But that's not all, since Petal Search also allows more traditional search and access to news with important partners like Qwant for research and Microsoft for news.
For this tutorial, we used a HONOR 9A , the most recent on the market. As a reminder, the HONOR 9A is an entry-level smartphone placed under the 15 mark0 euros (with even 20 euros immediate discount for the launch). Under Android 10, it offers a 6.3-inch screen with Full HD + definition. With a Mediatek MT6762R SoC, it comes with 64GB of internal memory and 3GB of RAM. It has more than one MicroSD memory port to expand its memory. And finally, there is a 5000mAh battery which thus provides two days of autonomy without any worries. On the photo side, the HONOR 9A offers a photo unit made up of three cameras: a standard wide angle, an ultra wide angle and a third for calculating the depth of field.
