The launcher plays an essential part in customizing an Android phone. Therefore, we find a huge selection of launchers in the Play Store, which users in Spain will be able to download. There are well-known options, such as Nova Launcher or Microsoft Launcher, but also others less known, but just as interesting.

When we have found one, we may you want to replace it and use it as the default launcher on your phone. If you have a Huawei mobile with EMUI, this is something that we can do, although certain steps must be taken to do so first. Especially if you don’t like the launcher that the Chinese brand uses on its phones.

The default launcher in Huawei EMUI does not quite convince many users, that are therefore looking for alternatives in the Play Store. If you’ve found one that you like, you may want to make it the default on your phone. The process of doing this is somewhat different in the customization layer of the Chinese brand, but it is not complicated. You just have to follow these steps:

  1. Open the phone settings.
  2. Go to Applications.
  3. Go to the Default applications section.
  4. Tap on Startup application.
  5. Choose the launcher you want to use by default.

This allows you to have the launcher you want on your Huawei mobile with EMUI, although there is an important aspect to take into account. Since if you have a phone with Android 10, you’re going to have problems with the gestures of third-party launchers, something that other brands like Samsung have solved. The consequence of this is that you have to use the virtual buttons on the phone at all times. Although depending on the version of EMUI, this is something that may vary.
