The Smart panel is not really a new feature as it first appeared in HiOS 5.0 and since then, it has been a major part of the HiOS features. Over the different updates, the Smart panel has undergone various modifications.
But the version on the HiOS 7 is a more advanced version with a whole new look and features compared to the old one. This new Smart Panel is built into the system and you almost do not notice it.
How to Activate
Activating this feature is almost the same as the earlier versions, just a little twist. First of all, you need to go to the menu to activate it before you can actually use it.
Step 1: Go to settings
Step 2: Click on Smart Assistant
Step 3: Select Smart Panel
Step 4: Toggle-on the Switch
To use this feature, on any screen, swipe from the left or right side of the screen and hold on till it shows the "s" letter. Then the Smart panel comes out.
