How to change white balance on the Huawei Mate 9

If you're like us, you're looking at your smartphone's screen constantly throughout the day. So you want it to look just right — including the color temperature of the display. By default, the Huawei Mate 9's display has a slight blueish tint to it — you might notice that colors look slightly cooler in photos, or whites appear a little paler than other phones.

If you want to tweak the phone's color balance to your liking, that's easy.


  1. Drag down the notification shade and tap the cog icon.
  2. In the Settings menu, tap Display.
  3. Tap Color temperature.
  4. In the menu that appears, drag the pointer around the colored wheel to set your new white balance level. Hit OK to confirm, to Cancel to discard.

Note: The "color temperature" setting here is active 100 percent of the time. To reduce blue light emissions at night — and potentially reduce eye strain, and make it easier to fall asleep — you can enable "eye comfort" mode. You'll find it in the quick settings area of the notification shade — long-press on it to view settings, or set a daily schedule.
