Bobi7x7, 14 May 2020Lol thank you Trump thanks to you Huawei will grow stronger :DI don't think so. Huawei can't compete with us giants.
potato4k, 14 May 2020In China, obviously. Outside China, interest on Huawei phones will dwindle. Right now, Huawei... moreit would be such a pity for us outside of vanilla world, we want more than to be subdued by expensive mediocrity, hopefully P50 Pro will rise next year ...
This is nothing short of a absurdly pathetic pissing match that the so called stable genius do not have the ability to win.
But keep trying.

Outside China, interest on Huawei phones will dwindle. Right now, Huawei... moreEven if it can just remain in China, it can still remain a great company. Mind you that's a 1.4B population and so even without selling in USA it still managed to unsit Apple on the number two position and even now with all the restrictions, it still outsells other brands.
And keep in mind that Huawei doesn't just sell phones but telecom equipment as well and it's still the largest vendor despite all the hostility against it by the world's most powerful nation.
That should tell you something about the strength of the company.
In fact, I don't think other companies even the likes Google, Microsoft and many more could have survived this type of assault on their businesses.
For instance, look at the performance of Nokia, the company is free to sell their equipment to any part of the world without hindrance but they are still struggling to do so (judging from their Q1 performance).

Waiting for the mate 50 with Google services lol

The Huawei ban is part of a large trade war between US and China. Nothing else.
Lol thank you Trump thanks to you Huawei will grow stronger :D
MadMel, 14 May 2020too late America, Huawei is already great ... In China, obviously.
Outside China, interest on Huawei phones will dwindle. Right now, Huawei can still sell the P30s etc. Next year, people would not be looking at Huawei phones anymore, unless they keep renaming their old phones with Google services (eg. P30 even newer edition)
Peachy001, 14 May 2020Can't Google shift their product to Europe, keep Trump from meddling? The software is likely c... moreGoogle is a US company, so they follow US laws. And why would they move to Europe where the laws and taxes are more draconian for their business? Also why should Google care about Huawei?
Can't Google shift their product to Europe, keep Trump from meddling? The software is likely created in many countries anyway.
As long as Xiaomi is alive it isn't that bad for people.
Luxor, 14 May 2020No android no buy. You mean no google. EMUI is still Android.
No android no buy.
Im not a big fan of china or their crooked politics. Still, a product is a product and USA never prooved that Huawei is a threat to security, but Huawei is clearly a threat to america's economy. Huawei makes brilliant phones that many people want, no matter the political interest behind them. If they keep the outer-china-phones clear of spyware and propaganda there's no reaon to ban them. Buying chinese phones and supporting the party is a moral decision by customers, not to be made by another crooked politician, namely Trump. If you gotta make america great again, don't do it by erasing unwanted competitions. It will only make the competition go stronger OR make people not buy google Amazon or apple products anymore. It is happening, slowly, but steady. Google and Amazon do have such a bad rep. over here, even more than chinese phones that do actually spy on you (xiaomi) it's unbelieveable...
A5X, 14 May 2020It's time for huawei to develop it's own OS and stop relying on Google. iOS and Android have over 14-15 years of development. I hope you're not seriously expecting Huawei to just whip out a competitor within a few months. If they do plan to shift development for Harmony/Hongmeng OS to be suitable for smartphones rather than just IoT devices, then you'll have to wait a few more years.
Anonymous, 14 May 2020Those examples of failed OSes are not applicable to the current situation. Huawei has an adva... moreMan u am waiting for Harmony OS on mobile, desperately want to try something new in a while.
Will "pre-ban" phones continue to get updates?
