To all of you story-tellers who dream about China retaliating / fighting back / hitting Apple (as if all this was done for Apple - yea yea and the earth is flat..):
Do you really think that the US government did not do any risk assesment before moving ahead with this? Really???? Do you really think that they do not think ahead?? Pfff, sooo naive.....
Hey children, wake up in the big boy's world.
For me as soon as Huawei releases Huawei OS is bye bye Android. Not gonna tolerate political sanctions as they do in real world and to other countries, now they do that in technology. This madness has to stop. Linus was right all along. As soon as "free" "non political" OS has been made. Its bye bye BS for good.
Zero, 26 May 2019Indeed and even if Samsung is doing a comeback, we wonder for how much they can continue to do... moreApple isn't competing on same market base as most Android OEMs therefore these conspiracy theories are extremely silly.
Do people really believe that Tim Apple thinks that people who usually buy 100-400$ phones will go for iPhone If Huawei quits selling phones? Of course not aka this is no conspiracy cooked up by Apple.

Apple meanwhile is benefited with the elimination of Huawei. Now they sabotage Samsung and ban the rest of Chinese and they have all the market for themselves
[deleted post]This has nothing to do with Apple despite what some Huawei fanboys might think. If iPhones are so bad why do Huawei CEO keep using Apple products?

The customer want in their phone has fluid performance, decent enough to make calls and basic messanging apps, with affordable price tag. Only Xiaomi achive that. The biggest example is India.
I am a huawei phone user since 2017, I love their phone and I would buy a new one, even if they are banned ind the USA. ...
Anonymous, 25 May 2019Yes it will. After 90 days no Huawei or Honor phone will get any updates.False, security updates is still going to come as long as Google supports that version of Android. (Google cannot legally pull that from Huawei products, luckily for the Huawei consumers)
AnonD-819322, 25 May 2019Why Xiaomi??? Their build quality is subpar... Specs don't matter that much these days, isn't ... moreBased off what? I own 3 Xiaomi phones (Mi 5, Redmi 5, Mix 2S) and they have all been solid and all still work.
Xiaomi >>>>>>>> in all aspects that actually matter. Huawei flagships are just camera-centric gimmick phones with no other practical masteries. Samsung flagships are overall powerhouses without compromises and xiaomi flagships are bold spearheaders without the hefty price tag. The worst thing about the pathetic company that is huawei is their arrogant ambitions disguising their rotten core philosophies. I hope their ban is never lifted so they'll be forced to waddle in the mud and stare at the wake of other honest and deserving oem's. Karma is indeed a female dog.
Nick Tagataka, 25 May 2019Better? Samsung, probably yes.. but Xiaomi? Like hell no.Samsung,no but xiaomi yes
Muhamashi18, 26 May 2019Hey there, can you drop a link? I'm still seeing original prices on eBay and Amazon. Or am I ... moreCan't give you a link since I don't know where exactly you live so it might not matter but you can refer to a C2C / classified-ads website that allows selling used / preloved items based on your respective countries something like Craigslist, Preloved, Decluttr, Carousell and..well I hope you get the point. Ebay and Facebook Marketplace is pretty much universal. Yes I know it's not new items but if you wanna save money, this is the way to go. I just noticed this when I watched a video titled "Singaporeans rush to sell Huawei phones online"

I'm still seeing original prices on eBay and Amazon. Or am I looking at the wrong locale?
Looks like Huawei should reinvent the wheel for now and let 5G for later or someone else.
I love Android but still if Huawei release their own OS in flagship I will buy it even it's costs me 1500$. I am a loyal Samsung fan still I will buy that new OS phone to support Huawei. I believe Huawei is a victim of industrial espionage.
