Xi0Y3iZ, 27 Feb 2020in my opinion, the ban is hurting Google more than anyone, plus "IF" Huawei is successful in H... moreThat's just stupid and not even realistic. MONEY ROTATE! e.g. HTC, Palm, BlackBerry, Nokia, etc.
Google already has new smartphone manufacturers like TCL, Realme, IQOO, Poco, Microsoft, etc. applying for new Google's licenses that will easy make-up for Huawei's device revenue and growing in device numbers from Xiaomi, BBK, Asus, etc. will eventually make Huawei a distant memory to Google.
Google is simply playing politics here just to save face to appear to China (not Huawei) that it still has not written off Huawei because Google still has businesses and partners all through China and wants to appear its still lobbying for Huawei.
Just read the headlines, this is Google's 2nd (perhaps more) request for a license, so, it isn't like the administration is not aware of Google's request and Google pretty much know what the administration's answer is.
ProJames-CHM, 27 Feb 2020Lol at people who think it's because Google feels threatened by Huawei's HMS. First, money is ... moreOver 800 million mobile internet users in China seems to say it's possible without GMS.
Sean, 26 Feb 2020Oh please let this happen,we need as many phone makers as possible on the market. And Huawei i... moreHow can Huawei be innoative if they stay tied down to Google's developements instead of developing with new initiative ?
You contradict yourself.
nate0, 26 Feb 2020No. Force them to bring their "Own OS" like they stated they would and alternative services. No one is #forcing Huawei to develope HMS, they initiated development of HMS a decade ago, the reason it will soon become mainstream, the reason Google is #pannicking as HMS will over-take GMS.
What Western people should realise is that Chinese internet users utilise Mobile devices whereas Western internet users utilises notebook/desktops.
Competition is always good for the consumer.
It seems the POTUS's policies are back-firing, mindless to think sanction, embargoes will only hurt the opposition.
Mobile Services within China working fine without GMS.
HMS will be usable for the World much sooner than anyone predict.
I for one will be looking forward to HMS, something fresher than GMS and contrary to popular News Media propaganda promotion of Huawei-Bad, I trust Google less than Huawei with regard to Spying.
As if the US doesn't use Google and Apple to spy on everyone, even spying on themselves and then spins it around to target the strongest competitor.
As Huawei is approximately two years more advanced technologically and moving even further ahead in time, it does not make logical sense for Huawei to #steal old technology.
I see Ren Zhengfei as a person who'll remember the embarrassment of losing face when the US targeted his daughter. Targeting the business is understandable, business is business. Targeting his daughter is personal and unforgivable, it'll lead to eventual revenge, it's a Chinese #Thing.
IpsDisplay, 27 Feb 2020Only time will tell if these points you've made will age like milk or wineWhy yes it's true. If Huawei somehow gets devs to support their platform...
Though I base myself on the fact that many other giants of technology tried to do the same and all failed. Microsoft+Nokia is a notable example. Mighty OS seller + mighty phone seller = epic fail. Samsung failed too (Tizen), Firefox, Ubuntu and I can continue listing stuff. What does Huawei have that the others who failed don't? Even Nokia had the very robust and actually decent Maps alternative Here/Nokia Maps.
Truth to be told, I certainly hope to be wrong. I'd absolutely love more competition in the mobile world.
This is super important for Huawei to be again successful outside the China.
Not that I like chinese brands but I hope Huawei will get back google services.
Kushalne, 26 Feb 2020 lets suppose if i was Huawei .and the license is granted .
google-. lets continue
... moreets suppose if i was Huawei .and the license is granted .
google-. lets continue
gogle -why not
me -we already have hms .
google - please ...
me - NO, we use HMS.
YUKI93, 27 Feb 2020FU, Google! Let people have a deGoogled or unGoogled smartphone without resorting to custom RO... moreWell, I need Google services, majority of smartphone users do. Google did the right thing here.

Kenny90, 27 Feb 2020For China user: we don't use google, so never mind. For outside China user: why they ban huaw... moreLol, the rest of the world can perfectly go along without huawei, or for that matter without any other brand
For China user: we don't use google, so never mind.
For outside China user: why they ban huawei?? we need use them
even once google apps allowed on huawei, huawei apps can be used alternative, more choice is better for consumers
I wonder once trump administration ends, if there will be any bans at all.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2020Google is just afraid about HMS for sureNailed it! If HMS will push through Google’s (and Apple’s) monopolization per se will definitely crack bit by bit. It will be a good win for the consumers. More mobile OS options means more competition and flexibility for the consumers to choose. And it will be an encouragement (maybe a pressure) for other smartphone brands to have their own.
Lol at people who think it's because Google feels threatened by Huawei's HMS. First, money is money. Less money for any company will force them to take actions. Second, HMS is far from being an even remotely capable alternative to GMS, especially for apps like YouTube or Widevine. So it's like having a big bulldozer and thinking it might get damaged by that small pebble right on its path. Third, there's still no dev enthusiasm for HMS, which BTW are also affected by the GMS ban. Fourth, outside domestic sales, Huawei got hurt too from.the ban. A spike in domestic sales helped offset this but next quarter results might be disastrous due to you know what.
Curtomac, 26 Feb 2020How about instead of stopping US companies from working with Huawei why not just ban the sales... moreYou'd make a better president than trump. Both not having any political background so you're perfect for the job.
