CptPower, 29 Dec 2019Android is googler but Harmony is Huawei.
Like when Myspace has been prevauiled by Facebook ... moreYou hate apple, you hate google. You hate everyone but the Chinese brands cos they are cheap. Let me remind you that without Apple and Google Huawei would be nothing. And without them Huawei is and will be nothing. Nobody trusts them and they haven't developed anything.Huawei just plagiarises. Without nobody to plagiarise they will disappear.
What you don't understand is that with Google going down Apple will go up! Not Huawei.
Samsung and google are allies. Lg and Google are allies. LG and Samsung are allies with Apple! See latest TV's. My OLED C9 has airplay 2 built in and apple TV confirmed. Samsung is the same with their QLEDs. They develop standards together.
Huawei is not a company that is able to pioneer. They just play the game other companies invent.
Rokka, 30 Dec 2019Android is open source lolAOSP codebase is open source but regulated by Google. No one can commit changes to the codebase without Google's explicit approval. They can push it in any direction they want. For eg. Manifest v3 in case of chromium. A hard fork is the only solution but that comes with its own headaches.
I absolutely root for Huawei as Trump is an evil hypocrite. More alternatives in the marketplace is always a great thing anyway. Go Huawei!!!!
how google fight back?
hope HMS progress well. and continue to provide quality service and product
no matter how, competition means, good news for mobile user.
Kim, 29 Dec 2019Android is Google. Even if they use HMS instead of GMS. haha...Android is open source lol
one of trump dumb decision because of that google will lose control of android service, HMS will take over China then India, Rusia and Huawei easier to spy user...
Yeah. In layman terms, AOSP is 100% open source.
But the customisation + most apps are not. That is the bread and butter of each phone makers. Once people start installing apps, that's not 100% open source anymore. And when its not open source, you can't be sure what's going on..
I have yet see a fully 100% open source phone that is of any use to end users. Once you tweak the security aspect of the OS, it's close most likely, to prevent reverse engineering or hacking. To say Android is 100% open source is a silly statement.
kupo, 30 Dec 2019You're the one should google it. Android is open source hence Huawei still able to use it for ... moreGPS is outdated - slow and inaccurate. Most latest phones use Russia's Glonass and soon China's BDS system. BDS accurate to 2m. GPS >30m.
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2019Android it’s not a 100% open source OS google it.You're the one should google it. Android is open source hence Huawei still able to use it for Mate 30/pro even though Hauwei is banned. Google service framework is proprietary, not open source. So Android phone in the west without gps is 90% useless unless you're a pirated-loving geek users lol.
No Google spyware, 29 Dec 2019Great job Huawei! Yet another step closer to a good alternative to bloated Google spyware, th... moreYeah with knockoff apps and low quality and how do you Chinese didn’t collect your date do you work with Chinese government?!...
Lion Douglas, 29 Dec 2019Android is open source and not productive for Google without the Gms. Android it’s not a 100% open source OS google it.
LG Superfan, 29 Dec 2019I heard about BBK joining Huawei for HarmonyOS but nothing about others and even if only BBK j... moreI read it somewhere they are still in talk, there is possiblity. I think Samsung talking to Huawei just to put some pressure on Google for better deal tho.
Btw, they can just simply use both GMS and HMS in a phone on transitions phase (1-3 years), offer migration tools, and slight discount (5%) on phone with both services installed. Just $10 prices difference =< $200 phones will enough to sway 80% buyer IMHO. Just make sure HMS is lightweight enough to not gives noticeable performance penalty.
In this era, when everything is opensourced, i feel HMS can be managable. IE is also based on chromium.

It would be nice to have options but I've got to say that there's a lot to be done to replace the Google services.
lol at the amount of Google-hate on this comment section. unless everyone and their mother using it, i don't think i would switch to hms even if they paid me.
ecosystem is more than just good app and adaptation to new thing. but i'd liked to see how huawei will build their own ecosystem
