If you want to be safe, buy an iPhone instead. Apple can't guarantee 100% privacy of course, but there is much less spyware than most Androids.

Never bothered to use Google Play services or Google Play Store for my apps.
Always updated my apps manually.
Kept that Spyware play services frozen when not needed and always behind a firewall.
P40 Pro camera is amazing... Design (front/screen design) and sound not so much, but the major problem is software... They should sell a global Android One version...

"Now if only Huawei is allowed to install Google Mobile Services on the Pros, they will become a proper hit."
No thanks, just give me this deGoogled Android smartphone all day.

Ageef, 05 Apr 2020Agreed! Hopefully they’ll have their own OS soon enough to compensate with their HMS. More OS ... moreAsk Samsung how popular own OS could be. There's zero chances at the moment that any OS can be popular except iOS and Android.
Unfortunately but Huawei phone sales will fall bad outside the China.

Hopefully they’ll have their own OS soon enough to compensate with their HMS. More OS options better competition in the market place, and definitely a win for the consumers.
How about Camera 2 API? For a phone that has such great camera specs, not having Camera 2 API is total clusterf##k. Saying aa I have P30 and my Filmic Pro can't use Cinematography Kit Upgrade. Please read online about this to find more info. Definitely one should take this into high consideration before buying any Huawei device and considering doing some advanced stuff with photography and videography.

Clearly the lack of GMS and the high price (And they aren't alone in the high price segment) will not help them.

Rest will be available in Huawei app gallery.
no point to get the non-pro P40 because it is exactly the same price now as P30 Pro
P40 Pro is priced very reasonably for best flagship. I think it will be worth the hassle of not having GMS out of the box.
Top camera and quality for device overall P devices. My personal statistics show that overall quality in time is for Xperia and Huawei. So indeed a ultra developed quality Sony camera in this Huawei. Thank you for that!
BUT PLEASE: QUIT 5G!!!!!

The title is accurate.
Having no google services is okay for me..actually I do want their new harmony os and I am very excited to see that in their phones, I want the end of android and google dominance in the smartphone market. Besides, more competition means healthier market and more innovative products and services.
