if this situation lasts longer, Oppo, Xaiomi and meizu will eventually be banned. Goodbye updates on OnePlus
AlienKiss, 16 May 2020Main reasons to say NO to whoawho: - they locked the bootloaders on their phones, meaning you... moreHuawei phones are great value mostly, that is if you are the average consumer and do not care about bootloader etc etc and ofc spyware but Google is not exactly any better honestly. I miss being able to use my Windows phone and Blackberry and I hate iOS in fact its so poorly made I cannot even use it for my needs. (well I could if getting a phone number in 3+ countries and made apple id for each but that is to much work to even bother...) Oh right Huawei despite faking it, Samsung have done this to but only faked it once. Have a REAL Leica camera and decent software to take some amazing photos! It just cannot be denied and unless you live in the USA its hard to find a Pixel smart phone in Europe so my vote goes for camera phone still to Huawei, also the option of a Google free device is not a bad thing let consumers now at the very least pick 1 out of 3 devils to steal their data.
Main reasons to say NO to whoawho:
- they locked the bootloaders on their phones, meaning you CAN'T root their garbage phones, meaning you CAN'T uninstall/delete their spying software, flash different ROMs, edit the system files, no administrator access etc (if you don't understand this line, move along, your IQ is too low)
- they've been caught at least 3 times using DSLR made photos by Nikon or Canon and they had the nerve to say those photos were made by their phones
- they were caught lying about the type of technology they were using for the internal memory, saying they use the latest and greatest, when in fact, they were using ancient outdated technology.
- it was proven that they send personal information to secret servers in china
I don't care if Whoawho comes to me, gives me free phone and pays me daily, I'd still show them the middle finger and tell them to get lost!
ONLY Samsung and/or Sony for me. NOTHING ELSE!
As you can clearly see, I like one South Korean brand and a Japanese brand. Both are Asian. You can't throw the racist bs on me!
PS I'm European and my second favorite food is chinese, right after sushi.
If the Chinese cannot have chips made by TSMC or Samsung they will pour all the money into their own fabs, this is not good for US allies such as TSMC(Taiwan) and Samsung(Korea). Trump & team cannot possibly think this will stop the Chinese long term! Sure both their x86/64 & ARM chips are not made locally will take some years to start that but when they do that can once open will not close and the US will have no longer any way to stop China making their own chips! Maybe they will have old nodes such as 32nm or 28nm but that doesnt change the fact these chip will come...
NotAnOpinion, 15 May 2020Bahahaha! What's so laughable is, people on here are really emotional from this news. What ... moreHuawei has set a higher standard using some of your tech that non of US companies did. Taking huawei down won't help. Xiaomi, Oppo, Real me and other chinese brands are getting better too. Welcome the challenge and improve your stuff. What are these bans for anyway? You are too desperate

Us will make sure that they push companies such as Nokia to compete with huawei. It's too bad their 5G is so far behind and they are taking their frustrations on china's huawei. Shame
NotAnOpinion, 15 May 2020Bahahaha!
What's so laughable is, people on here are really emotional from this news. What ... moreDeveloping products using what they have access to is NOT the same as "sticking their tongue out" at US, it's in fact exactly the opposite. There's nothing wrong with switching a supplier if the current one can't produce for and sell parts to a company, and US government was obviously expecting this to happen because, surprise surprise, they are not really that stupid.
Similarly, Huawei was not "abusing" US reprieve extension - its major purpose was to prevent the US SUPPLIERS from sustaining a significant loss from the ban, and they can always stop selling parts Huawei if they manage to find new customers and no longer feel the need for doing so. Therefore whatever the business still going on between them, it's happening because those suppliers want to latch onto Huawei as long as they can.
"all the backdoors to adding ILLEGAL GMS on new Huawei's devices"
Other companies such as Meizu and Xiaomi also have a similar enterprise API that allows a very similar behaviour, so actually this is not limited to Huawei. On top of that Huawei is actively blocking any 3rd party apps that have been made to install Google apps (e.g. LZPlay and that fishy "chat partner" app no longer work), so I have no idea where you even got that idea from.

Gms ecosystem is no longer an issue for huawei and they still standing. What's left for the us and it's allies is to extend their ban on huawei. It's almost two years now talking about china using huawei to spy the us but you guys can't prove it to the world. Usa is making china better through these bans. It's time you guys accept the challenge
What next? China ban Apple, QC, Ericson, US ban all Chinese phones and all of them have to use HSM?
This will all make Huawei more self dependent, they can make their own kirin chip without TSMC, or even worse, use an exynos chip from samsung or even mediatek. This will just make huawei gain more control of the chip just like apple did
Anonymous, 16 May 2020Blind love for a brand, feel bad for you.Let those who have got love for the brand show it. Your own iphone was base in china. Now you hate huawei so bad if it was gonna be shutdown tomorrow you would throw a big party. America being a super power has blinded it's folks
It goes nowhere.
Kriegsherr, 16 May 2020how dumb it is to be fan of a country just by using a single product?lol, i just had sushi... i love japan!
In the meantime, I'm just chillin' on Nokia...
