The update has a new UI design which follows the design principles of Magazine Design: bigger title area, white spacing, grid system, and highlight elements. Honor says this will provide for a better user experience. The Settings icon is now a large round icon.

The aesthetical changes also apply to apps such as the Camera app which now displays the changes made in large fonts, when you use one of the sliders. To add to the immersion, the other elements of the UI are hidden while you adjust the setting.

Deterministic Latency Engine

The Magic UI 3.0 update improves the overall performance of the devices, thanks to the Deterministic Latency Engine. It uses a prioritized system to allocate resources such as CPU, GPU, memory, baseband, Wi-Fi, etc for high-priority tasks like user touches or foreground app operations, for a smooth experience. This in turn helps reduce lags caused by background applications.

Magic UI 3.0 update features - Sense-Activiated Animation Effect

Honor has also implemented “Sense-Activated Animation Effects” to offer the best visual animations and a fluid touch responsive experience.
