risk-v and open source it will benefit all , but very paradoxical from a company controlled by Chinese party

Walter C. Dornez, 21 May 2019Tell that to Windows Mobile. A company like Microsoft wasn't able to do itI will add that Microsoft is the biggest software company worldwide... and still failed with the mobile OS!
Good luck Huawei :D

Lets see where Huawei goes I have a feeling Trump will allow Google to licensce Huawei if they pay for it

Only a fraction of that user base would do it, not to mention that Huawei will need funds to build an OS. I think it would be best to strike a deal, get Android back, and then work on a side OS for later independence from Android
The Good Shepherd, 21 May 2019Might be different this time. ZTE is not a state owned and will therefore accept the US deal ... moreYeah, but that Plan B is just a bunch of air. Even if they started trying to make an OS, they'd have to do work on it for months, and Huawei can't be without business for that long. It would be infinitely smarter to suck it up and compromise, and make the OS on the side with access to software companies in America
Android Q and R are going to have very low usage numbers because of this huawei ban
It's not easy to build a new OS to replace Android. An OS need a huge app ecosystem to thrive.
Walter C. Dornez, 21 May 2019That's assuming they can even get that many on it, which in of itself is nigh impossibleHuawei sold over 200 million phones last year. Getting some of those custumers to switch to the new OS wouldn't be difficult. I think most sensible users would be willing to try it out. If they like it, they would stick with it. Android and iOS is getting a bit stale anyways, time for something new.

Never liked Huawei because of its high prices, but I will buy one if it comes with Huawei OS in the near future, sick of this CIA Google who thinks they rule the world...
Jim, 21 May 2019Hope we get symbian back or maybe a newer and better tizen. Enough of this android monopoly al... moreAndroid & iOS have the monopoly, they are already a huge part of smartphone world.
Many say that Huawei will now have to make it's own OS(which it was already stated by them in the past that they had made 1 as a plan B) but as many of you saw in the past many new operating systems if they don't catch up fast, they end up dying or being forgotten.
It's hard for developers to port there apps to new operating systems.
Anyway they can still use the AOSP version of Android even if it's usually a bit behind etc.
Personally I don't see any other option(if the ban continues) than that, Huawei in China is already sell EMUI skinned android phones without Google related software(but filled with Chinese bloatware) and with it's own app store!
Note7 owner, 21 May 2019Resell value on huawei phones have just taken a good 20% drop. Just goes to show that money is just an idea really that can just fluctuate by news at a whim if we got up tomorrow and just decided money is nothing it's just nothing
Why did I respond like this... Guess I had nothing else to do
Being someone who's owned a lot of phones, but likes to keep using them for 4+ years. Huawei really delivered "lagless" phones after a long period of usage, unlike many competitors. They lagged, but not as much as samsung's mid to top rangers. I know this is dependent on many factors, but still, you get the point.
Q or not, the Mate 20 is a great phone that will outlive many if you're not picky about security updated.
Walter C. Dornez, 21 May 2019Still highly doubt it'll get that far. It's likely a deal will be made and Huawei gets Android... moreMight be different this time. ZTE is not a state owned and will therefore accept the US deal due to pressure from shareholders. But Huawei is state affiliated though they claim to be a private company owned by their employees, LOL) and would not want US eyes prying into their inner workings.
By the way, Huawei's founder/CEO swore he would never the ZTE and they had a plan B in anticipation of such situations
