When it comes to smartphone design, there has been a constant tug of war between screen size and ergonomics. In fact, screen sizes are so massive that it has become very difficult to hold certain smartphones, let alone carry them.

With the advent of thinner bezels and taller aspect ratio, this problem has been mitigated a little. However, for some users, phone screens are still too large.

EMUI, the OS that powered Honor and Huawei smartphones feature a handy little feature that is aimed at helping those who find the screen too large.

By swiping left or right on the virtual keys, you will be able to switch to a mini screen that is specifically designed to be used with just one hand.

This screen can be on the left or right corner of the display, depending on how you are holding the smartphone. This mini screen works just like your normal screen, only smaller.

Once you are done with the mini screen and wish to go back to the normal view, tap any blank area on the display. The screen will stretch back to normal size.

I really like the one handed mode in my phone, that being said I rarely use it as I don't like wasting the screen space even though my phone is bigger than I would like to be :p

I don't have problem with big screen phones but if you need to switch over to one-handed mode frequently, it is better to buy a smaller phone. You could make a compact 5" flagship phone like Sony does but without huge bezels or notch. Use a 1080p amoled/micro-led screen, keep battery higher than 4000 mAh with SuperCharging available in India and no EMUI please.

Then there won't be a need for mini screen feature.

I seriously wish my S8 had ~5.3" display (instead of 5.8) with similar ratios (just shrink it a bit) & a metal back. Bigger battery would have been nice, but still it would have been a much better phone for me, almost perfect. Sony phones are bad now & are overpriced. My old Z3 Compact was almost perfect for me at that time.

More the merrier. Is there any chance of Honor skipping the notch and going for a full screen phone, a screen which can emit sound in the form of vibrations or like a motorized front camera and sensors?

I personally never used big screen phone but would love to have one because of the battery capacity and vibrant screen. And yes with the latest trend of notch and aspect ratio optimization we are able to get a bigger screen on a small factor.

The so-called Niffty feature is good but irritating sometimes I have seen people use this feature but they feel irritation kind of they don't like using it, because of the void it creates.

Can you please make the UI more stock, it will look more accurate and user-friendly.

It doesn't work in landscape for my phone, Samsung S8, so I doubt Huawei made it to work in theirs. But games that run in portrait mode does work in one-handed mode. It shouldn't lag.
Okay, lets see if Huawei can make it work on landscape mode too. Games can be played better if they had controls outside of the screen. Touch screen controls gets annoying while playing fighting games.

Sometimes my phone's edge detection prevents me from selecting spell in Clash of Clans, but it happens rarely. Anyways the on-screen navigation bar should hide while playing games, I never faced problems with it, even in my old Sony Z3 Compact.
 
Actually the compact design of Honor 10 gives it a upper hand from it's competitors . It has a 5.84 inch display while all the other flagships in the current market sport a 6+ inch display . This actually makes the device handy , easy to hold , carry , comfortable while calling , keeping in small pockets etc . This is just a small difference but still matters a lot .

This nifty feature actually adds stars to the Honor devices . It comes in handy and makes the device easy to operate via a single hand while typing and for some emergency work . Very impressed by this feature in Honor 9 lite . Helps your eye to fix it's sight on a smaller area.

This feature could be really useful while you could use your phone with just one hand during some actions especially while eating you could use the phone without getting tired,or stretching your fingers to reach the far corners of the screen.

Why is every Android OEM releasing a one hand software mode?This issue can be simply solved with releasing phones with 5.8 inch 18:9 ratio phones.
Personally I would love to have a phone with zenfone 3/iphone X dimensions
