My Mate 20 X AL00 updated successfully to EMUI 11 (close to 3 GB) and the initial impressions are good.
  • November 2020 security patch.
  • New animation for charging, icons, windows closing-opening, etc.
  • UI is smoother and fluidic than previous.
  • Loud Speaker output almost similar to Stock EMUI 9
  • Battery backup similar to previous.
  • Petal Search is awesome.
  • MeeTime
Will post more after using for few days.

Cheers!

Did anyone else get this update? Cannot find it through VPN :/ Also are you still forced to use stock launcher ?

Yep I got it on my AL00 using it in US on T-Mobile and ATT but was on my home wifi used Support app to do update. Still no way to set 3rd party launchers as default.

hey guys, received the update notification for 11.0.0.125 yesterday here in Singapore. Sporting a chinese EVR-AL00 8/256 GB model and was on EMUI 10.1.0.167 previously. Here the details:

EVR-AL10 EMUI 11.jpg


So far so good, some of the settings are re-arranged and look different, new animations and vibration patterns, Security Patch got updated, as well as the Kernel version (didnt check previous Baseband but im assuming that got also updated). Lets see how battery life is!

Hows the battery life on it so far?

pretty sweet, averaging 17h15m SOT as per AccuBattery :) can highly recommend using DuckDuckGo browser and Hibernator Pro to save on data and energy consumption!
Hi jbmc,

No offense but I cannot believe you get 17 hours SOT. Not calling you a liar. Probably accubattery is not reading your phone correctly.

I have the L29 from singapore - although I live in USA with both singapore and USA sim cards. Do you know when my phone will get the 11 update?

haha i get it, I also had to check my actual usage and the screen active time shown in the settings under battery, it actually pans out! after roughly 8.5 hours SOT i was at around 50% battery left.

as for the EMUI 11 rollout, really no idea my friend. it seems the timings of the regional specific rollouts are all over the place. only thing i can say is that it will surely come :) in general tho, chinese models usually get served first before the international counterparts-

The hell are you talking about
dunno what to tell u man *lol*
but im serious, ive always been one to optimize the heck out of the system to maximize SOT :)
i.e. settings permissions for ALL apps depending on how i use them, restricting background data as much as possible, using wifi wherever available, tuning in min usable screen brightness, setting battery optimization for all apps, switching off all sensors whenever i dont actively use them (i.e. NFC, BT, GPS, etc.), using apps like Hibernator Pro or Greenify to hibernate all unused apps, using privacy focused browser like DuckDuckGo to save on unnecessary data, using 3G instead of 4G/LTE to minimize energy consumption....

every little bit helps and then u end up with awesome SOT ;)

Ok youre confusing because before you agreed with me that it was not possible to get sot of 17 hours on android 11. Now youre saying it is possible but only by turning off unneeded background data, wifi, apps etc., not through android 11 alone. You also didnt confirm that you had android 11 installed.

Even if you took all of the steps you mentioned you cannot go from 8 - 9 SOT and double it to 17. Thats impossible.

ah no, u misunderstood mate, i was agreeing with you that it initially seemed too good to be true, but after checking SOT via different sources i was able to confirm those runtimes :)
I have EMUI 11 / Android 10 installed, Android 11 is not available on the Mate 20 series.
I was never down to 8-9 hours SOT to begin with...unless maybe at max screen brightness and using Maps with High perf. GPS on 4G mobile data all day long haha.
Before on EMUI 10.1 with Greenify and CM Browser I was at around 12-14h SOT, now im more in the range of 16-18h on EMUI 11 with Hibernator Pro and DuckDuckGo Browser.

Hope that clears things up! :)

Hi there,

I have android 10/emui 10.1 on my mate 20x. But you say you have emui 11 but that android 11 isnt available for the mate series. I think you made a typo.

You said you had greenify on 10.1. But how can that be if you cant root the 20x on that version?

With hibernator pro what apps and system services did you freeze? I will do the same with mine.

Its just not possible to get double the SOT on the 20x when max SOT is 10 hours. Hope youre not trolling. Something isnt right here.

Not a typo. EMUI is NOT equal to Android. EMUI 11 for the Mate 20 series is based on Android 10, NOT 11. :)

You can use Greenify in non-root mode, no problem.

I can provide a list of apps and services on freeze for Hibernator Pro, just give me a bit of time.

Not trolling. Who says max SOT is 10 hours? my current values are in the range of 14-18 hours depending on usage and averaging roughly 15-16.

Edit: I attached a screenshot of Battery usage for the past 7 days as shown in Accubattery. At 5.4%/h for screen on, you would get a total of 100/5.4 = 18.5h of SOT. But of course, that is only if you use a whole battery charge with screen on. So you need to add in the energy consumption during screen off: 300% screen on + 45% screen off = 345 % total.
55h55m total SOT divided by 345% = 16.2h SOT per 100% charge on average.
Btw, when I compare the SOT times measured in Accubattery with the values shown under settings / Battery, they check out, both show the same values (at worst only a few minutes apart).

Also attached preference files for Hibernator Pro, hope this helps!

Hi there,

I dont know if you have emui 11 so I cant confirm if you do or not. If you do indeed have emui 11 theres no way in hell huawei figured out how to double SOT on it since they werent able to before in 10.

Average SOT on 20x is 9 - 11 hours. Not double that. I've been reading this forum on the 20x for a year. I've never come across anyone claiming SOT greater than 12 hours. Never.

Is it possible to install your prefs into my Hibernator Pro?

If Hibernator Pro does that same job as greenify why use greenify at all? Which apps did you freeze in greenify?

yes i have EMUI 11 installed. never said they "doubled" SOT. as mentioned before, on EMUI 10.1 i was at roughly 12-14h SOT, now its about 2-4h more depending on usage. thats not double :)
tbh, i never fell down to 9-11h SOT unless in crazy circumstances (i.e. 100% screen brightness the whole time). so not sure how others are using their phone...
in any case, i cant do more than show u proof via screenshots. if you dont believe me, thats fine, not forcing anyone to do anything here. just providing info :)

should be possible by importing the preferences via settings i uploaded in Hibernator Pro. just double check the exception and hibernation lists afterwards, since i probably have different user apps installed than you. system apps should be almost identical though.

I had been using Greenify for years now, mostly on rooted phones. Since im not rooted on the 20x i used it in non-rooted mode. i wasnt aware of hibernator pro until just recently, so i just gave it a try and it works like a charm!

Ok I'm confused again by your statement. You cannot get 12 - 14h SOT when everyone gets an average of 8 - 10h SOT. Your claim of 17h SOT is roughly double what everyone gets. So in essence you did say "doubling."

Then you outlandishly claim that android 11 isnt available for the mate series which is NOT true. Why do you say that when websites say it will be available for the 20x? Wish you would explain this with proof.

Its not that we dont want to believe you its that we cant believe you because your claims clearly fall far outside the norm. Post as many pics as you want as proof but those are not impossible to alter.
