Google Android 12 It is the next operating system with various new features. Android is open source and provides different types of customization for smartphone manufacturers to customize Android and use it as the basis for their customized software skins, just like Huawei EMUI.
However, if you are using any mobile phone such as Huawei or Samsung, you may find that the Pixel device has minimized and limited the number of separate applications launched by Google. This clean and Google-only user experience is called – Stock Android.
But Hongmeng operating system is the next operating system to enter China’s Huawei mobile phones with Hongmeng operating system 2 version. Therefore, more and more device owners continue to upgrade this new open source operating system to increase the number of Hongmeng operating systems to counter Android.

In the past, we compared different Android software, including multiple types of software skins, but this time, we will compare the existing Android 12 with Hongmeng OS 2. For this comparison between Hongmeng OS 2 and Android 12, we will first have an in-depth understanding of the functions of the two softwares to quickly set up and see which is the best.
Android 12 is supported by Material You, a brand new user interface design specifically designed for the Android ecosystem. The Android 12 quick settings panel shows the same integration. After shipping down, you can access the quick settings, and there are various tiles (quick click buttons) that are wide enough to ensure you don’t miss the click.
The brightness control and volume sliders now also have larger sliders. However, the position of the top brightness slider should be at the bottom. You can also edit the “Quick Settings” option and add more options to it, or delete any options as needed.

However, the virtual power button is a lifesaver, it appears on Android 12, from which you can click on the emergency, activate the lock, turn off the device, or restart it. You don’t have to press physical keys to perform such operations.
HarmonyOS comes with a new control panel, which has different types of mobile services in one place, such as media controllers, connections, quick settings, super devices, and smart connected devices. You can easily manage these from one place.

Especially in terms of quick settings, Hongmeng inherited the icons of EMUI 11, but carried out better visualization and HM OS software design schemes for them. Compared to Android 12, you can view more quick switches on the same screen without any problems.
The quick setting design of Hongmeng system is very simple and exquisite, and it is very convenient to use. However, the power switch is also a necessary function that Huawei should use for this new operating system to save the physical power button of the phone.
