They are doing this to strengthen the Harmony OS, because we all know nobody will shift to a new OS without the apps, and thats what killed Windows mobile.
I for one, would love to see them succeed. I owned quite a few Huawei (and Honor) devices, and am in love with my Mate20x 5G and View 20. If they can continue to create great devices, people will continue to support them.
Android ecosystem (and google services) has been a great and powerful tool - but the fact that they abandoned Huawei at the time of their need makes me want to root for an underdog even more. No one should have a monopoly on technology and basic services, Im glad Huawei is standing up to bullies.

So now they will have a double check with the Huawei software. Goood!
Kim, 29 Dec 2019Android is Google. Even if they use HMS instead of GMS. haha...Please learn the word "open source", tqvm.
Excellent, now I can enjoy another deGoogled Android OS. I have /e/ OS running on my Android phone and I definitely like it.
Great job Huawei!
Yet another step closer to a good alternative to bloated Google spyware, this is really much appreciated.
Google (and American companies in general) really can't be trusted with your personal data, they're just spying you out as much as possible, just to create profiles of your personal data and sell them to whoever wants them (advertisers, NSA etc).
Especially the NSA (National Spy Agency) has shown time and time again, that they can't be trusted at all. Just see Edward Snowden etc., that was just the tip of the iceberg.
The Chinese don't collect your private data to create profiles from them and sell them, like Google does, so they're far more trustworthy than Google or other American companies.

I think it's good to have an alternative to Google Services = more competition. I own a Xiaomi devoce and would like to see Xiaomi joining Huawei and Oppo to develop an alternative.
It's not Huawei vs US ... it's China vs US. Huawei is just a casualty.
Samsung, Huawei et tal need to wake up & have their own ecosystem ready for when the US politicians decide to put them out of business.
Huawei have the finance to overcome this Google services ban.
Do they have the will?
I would be surprised if this post makes it past the moderators... However... It is not necessarily the companies always at fault with collecting data. Although they are required to by certain laws... And store data for a period of time.
Another thing that big tech companies may or may not be aware of... Is that National Intelligence of most countries around the world have access to anyone's information at anytime.
So it is the national intelligence services that are the real data collectors. I personally know this to a point where I cannot actually say here.
But why are they using English ? Isn't it supposed to be in Chinese only ? They think some weird OS will be famous like others Failed before ...lol

BBK big families also has joining consortium, last time I heard, Sony, Samsung, LG, and xiaomi are on discussion. Everyone realize Google monopoly is NOT healthy
Peachy001, 29 Dec 2019Could backfire somewhat on Trump. If Huawei are able to get India and China to adopt their OS,... moreMicrosoft doesn't have a billion people nation
And it was never under any political pressure
All we need is a Harmony OS and then we all can say goodbye to google services and crapple expensive unfriendly OS.
Nothing can beat or stop Huawei from being the number one company.
All Hail to Huawei.
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2019We dont need another OS whether people want to admit it or not
Huawei will go down that easilyMan Huawei is no Samsung Sony LG or Apple.
Dunno where you got that but for next decade will be the huawei king of all mobiles.
Remember this. Chinese will always prevail because everything is made in china.
