You can download HiSuite for Huawei Android phones and tablets for the Windows and Mac platforms. HiSuite (PC Suite) is the official Android Smart Device Manager tool by Huawei to manage compatible devices from the computer. This tool works with almost all the Huawei devices that have launched in the past five years or more and supports all devices up to EMUI 10.
HiSuite allows you to easily manage images, videos, applications, etc. on your Huawei phone from a Windows PC or a macOS computer. It also lets you backup, restore all the phone data and update your device to the latest available firmware. Even though this tool comes preloaded on every Huawei phone, the teams at Huawei update their Windows version (v188.8.131.520) a lot more frequently than the Mac version (v9.0.1).
HiSuite doesn’t come with a unique set of features, but it does provide a much better compatibility and support for Huawei devices. That is why HiSuite is always our first recommendation for a Huawei PC Suite or Android Manager i.e. HandShaker, Android File Transfer. Utilities like this one often come with a nice UI and easy to understand interface. Not every phone user is as tech-savvy as others.
Once your phone is connected, the first screen will display current statistics of the phone, like total number of images, contacts, videos etc. And also show how much free space do you have on your device. If you have problems connecting your Huawei phone with your computer, this tool ships with the latest Huawei USB drivers. So you don’t need to install any drivers separately.
We have a list of download links to Huawei HiSuite and some features for those who are going to use this tool for the very first time. There are links to older releases of this tool below, but we’d highly recommend downloading the latest one.
Before we jump to download, here is a brief feature description and a list of features about the Huawei HiSuite.
Latest USB Drivers Included
The Huawei HiSuite tool comes with latest USB drivers so that your computer can properly recognize the device it is connected to. The software verifies the device by also showing an image of it in the User Interface.
Simple and Intuitive UI
A UI which is both easy on the eyes and serves its full purpose is very hard to find, luckily, the Huawei HiSuite does all that. Right off, you would be greeted by a picture of the device you have connected along with key statistics represented with clean graphics.
Backup / Restore Options
You can use the HiSuite tool to create a system wide backup of your Huawei device. As backups are very important, the HiSuite automates the process and allows you to enjoy your phone hassle free. And if you switch phones, you can easily restore all your data as well.
System Firmware Update Functionality
Once Huawei issues a firmware update for your phone or tablet, you can use Huawei HiSuite to update to it. The program will let you know once an update is available and help you install it at a time of your convenience. This is helpful when you do not want the phone to update to a newer firmware automatically.
