EMUI 10.1 may have introduced multiple features to Huawei's roster of devices, but there are reports of the OS update removing some functionality too. According to frustrated users, EMUI 10.1 has removed call recording and camera resolution options, although not all devices are affected.

While Huawei boasts of having rolled out to EMUI 10.1 to over three dozen devices in its home market of China, some people are complaining that it has removed two features from its latest OS update. The complaints follow other issues concerning poor battery life on devices like the Huawei P30.

According to Huawei Central, multiple handsets running EMUI 10.1 are missing call recording functionality, a feature that should be present in Huawei's current OS. Worse still, the feature was present in EMUI 10.0. If you have a device running EMUI 10.0, then you head to the settings of the Phone app to enable automatic call recording.

Additionally, there are reports camera resolution options being missing from within the default EMUI 10.1 camera app. Previously, the app would allow you to choose the aspect ratios that you could shoot in, which were tied to megapixel count. However, Huawei appears to have stripped the megapixel count from the Photo resolution sub-menu of its default camera app. Ultimately, shooting in 4:3 should always yield the highest megapixel count, but we cannot see why Huawei would have chosen to remove it as of EMUI 10.1.

Please keep in mind that these could be bugs, so they may only affect some devices. Hence, we would expect Huawei to eventually bring these features back to the devices that are affected, although we do not know when that will be the case.
