The Honor 9x was released by Huawei in October 2019 and runs on an Android 9.0 operating system. While not one of the leading models, it’s rising in popularity. It offers an all-day battery and even a triple camera. While the phones clearly have decent quality, not everyone enjoys their display and set-ups.
Thankfully, Huawei made the Honor 9x fairly customizable. So if you aren’t loving the default apps that run when you startup your phone, you have the option of changing them.
Finding The Default Apps
First, you will need to decide which apps you would like to come up automatically when you turn on your phone. For instance, perhaps you would enjoy using the Photo Editor Pro instead of your phone’s default editor. While you do have the option to change this when prompted by your phone (usually when you are about to use the apps), setting this ahead of time can save you time.
Since the Honor 9x has an Android operating system, you can go to the Google Play Store to pick out some new favorites. Go ahead and install whatever apps you are wanting to run on startup.
Beginning on your home screen, click on your “Settings.” Next, go to “Apps” and then “Default Apps.” After doing this, you should see the master list of apps on your Honor 9x.
Making The App Change
One you see the full list, you can begin switching things up by selecting the default apps that you no longer want as the default and correct that setting. Then, you can find the new apps that you want to appear. When you select them, you should see an option to make them a default app. Now your favorite apps should be set as the default.
Switching Your Launcher
If you’re wanting even more customization options, you might want to consider selecting a Launcher app. A Launcher, also called a home-screen assistant, can help you personalize your phone to the max.
For example, Nova Launcher would work for any device with an Android OS. It gives you lots of options, including switching up your app drawer, new themes, backup assistance, and optimized speed.
If you have decided to switch to using a Launcher, the process is similar but slightly different. Follow the process for switching the default apps. Once you are in the “Default Apps” section, click “Launcher.”
You can now pick the launcher that you’ve downloaded. From there, simply navigate back to your home screen and get started.
Alright, your phone should now be set just the way you like it with your new apps in place. Remember that if your phone crashes, it will automatically reset to its original settings. In that event, you will simply need to go through this process again to reset the apps you want.
Users are already loving the sleek design of these devices. Hopefully, these simple changes can help you enjoy your new Honor 9x even more.
