The Honor 10 comes with the latest flavour of Google’s mobile OS, Android Oreo. However, with EMUI 8.1, the company has added its own little features. One of which is knuckle gestures.

With Knuckle Gestures, Honor aims to offers users a faster way to perform certain actions. For example, knocking on the screen twice lets you take a screenshot, whereas normally, you would have to press the volume down and power button together.

Further, if you want to take a screenshot of a particular section of the screen, you can use your knuckle to circle that area on the screen.

EMUI 8.1 also lets you open certain apps by drawing specific letters on the screen. For example, drawing a ‘C’ will open the camera. Of course, you also have the option of changing these shortcuts whenever you want,

Using split-screen mode is also pretty straightforward. All you have to do is draw a line with your knuckle. You can then you two apps simultaneously.

So, what do you think about Knuckle Gestures? Would you like to see more gestures added in the future? Let your thoughts be known below.

Doubletap the screen for screenshot sounds good,but while some actions like playing games could trigger the gesture when there is no need,but iam not so sure.

This feature was first introduced in P9, its ok but here is where it gets inconsistent and feels really gimmicky. In order to get the best results, you have to use the very back of your knuckle, which just doesn’t feel very intuitive. And even then, it still has a hard time detecting the use of a knuckle. Some of the gestures, like the double tap to take a screenshot, work really well, but the other more complex gestures really show that Knuckle Sense needs some work before it can become a truly reliable feature.

Integrating AI with gestures should be cool.
Taking screenshot of a particular section on a screen sounds a good feature. Will it come to the P20 pro in the next update? Missing in my friends phone as of now.
