If you’ve bought a new Huawei P10 or P10 Plus, or if you’re thinking about it, here’s a handful of useful tricks you might not have discovered just yet. You’ve probably already found things like the 3D face detection to take amazing selfies, or the multi-function home button which gives you more space on the screen, but did you know you can use your knuckle to activate some cool features as well?


Want to capture entire chats or a long article? Draw a S with one knuckle for scroll-down screenshots.


Only want to capture a part of the screen? Capture part of the screen in a circle or any shape you prefer by drawing a circle or any other shape with one knuckle.


Want to teach your parents or friends about a certain function? You need the screen-recording feature on P10. Knock on the screen with two knuckles to start or pause screen-recording.


Want to watch a video and chat at the same time? Screen-split allows you to multitask. Draw a line in the middle of the screen with one knuckle to activate screen-split.

Not shown is the ability to take a quick screenshot, which simply requires tapping the screen twice with one knuckle, and it’ll save a screenshot of whatever you’re doing at that time.

Want these cool features? The Huawei P10 is available from Vodafone, Optus and Virgin Mobile on a variety of plans, and the P10 Plus is available outright for $1,099 from JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.
