MATE 30 PRO, 01 Jul 2020And Google is a threat to all of us who have Android OS with its geolocation apps, isn't ... moreAnd if samsung doesn't stop becoming so complacent Huawei could have surpassed them before all this happened.
Though I'm sure samsung would have probably eventually done something to fight back.
Unfortunately all companies... all.. including Huawei, samsung, Google, sony, etc have started asking way too much while compromising somewhere.
And Google is a threat to all of us who have Android OS with its geolocation apps, isn't it?
The truth is the only threat that the US has from Huawei is that it is becoming the world's largest manufacturer of smartphones.
Meanwhile, Google is out there taking everyone's personal data and use or sell it for ads.
fair thing to do. China has prospered by corporate espionage and cheap labour. There should be a limit to that! Want a seat at a table then play by the rules. No US services to China or if you want to open a business there need to respect all their strict regulations, then no Chinese products to US
Repeating "Communist" when naming China, clearly shows a different intent here... Nothing to do with "security".
wasox, 01 Jul 2020Many people here are really naive, or just plain ignorant, the threats that USA talkd about,... moreWonderful piece. Recently a Senior US Security representative spoke about the Western backwardness to catch up with the Chinese companies advancement. So my opinion is that the West is trying to play catch-up!
Ariur, 01 Jul 2020China banning Google, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, and almost every other Western tech company ... moreYes, but China never pretended to be otherwise than it is while U.S. is the king of double standards and breaker of all kinds of contracts or treaties. It always entertains me when some U.S. politicians go on the mic for interviews and just tell what they did and justify their actions with some completely retarded logic. I wonder if there are people who actually believe ....
Hmm I'm always baffled about US stories on Huawei especially, technology innovations are not hidden agenda. Whether you like Chinese companies technological advancement or not they have gone miles ahead of their Western counterparts!
Ariur, 01 Jul 2020China banning Google, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, and almost every other Western tech company ... morewell said. i donno why people criticizing usa's decision, usa's free software programs and achievements are the primary reason behind chinas technological development. if us behaved like china chinese aint gonna achieve anything they will stick with those 4speaker resistive touchscreen phones. chinese never gonna make anything like linux or google , they wont even support open source program.
Look I am gonna get spied on anyway. I rather have had good tech on my hand. If Huawei Nova 7i had google services, I would have bougt it at an instant. This just means less options for the average consumer. And please don't reply to this with 'national security'. This is just trade war, and we the common people lose out due to arrogance on both sides and characters like that loony trumpy tooon
Many people here are really naive, or just plain ignorant, the threats that USA talkd about, are not related to the silly insignificant cellphones from huawei and zte, NO, it is about the Hardware required to handle all comunications, the hardware that carriers, agencies, corporations etc, use to operate, the cellphones are just one of the ending parts, and they can be of any brand, even if no huawei or zte phones existed, the threat would remain the same

Claiming that Cisco haven't suffered from their security issues is also a half-truth. Ten years ago everything enterprise infrastructure was Cisco. It was the defacto standard. Today a lot is not-Cisco. Like, Juniper and such.
These corporations will expand then on other countries who didnt suceed whit high value tech product production.
It’s better to stay away from politics unless you have what it takes to become a successful politician. However it’s a shame US consumers will have less choices. Life goes on.
I see that there are Posts on opposing sides to this political argument, and would like to insert mine. I believe that the usa doesn't trust china at all, so when they hear that some companies (Huawei and ZTE) are offering communication services to the CCP and basically offering their 5G tech to them to use, the US hears this as “Huawei and ZTE are working with the military”. Mind you lots of American companies offer their services to the military, and the USA actively spies on their citizens, and yet they deem Chinese companies that have the government as one of their customers, a national security threat? I saw one post stating that Cisco has been leaking information and was caught in the act. Yet no country is sanctioning them? I think this is much more that national security but rather the Trade War. They may say this that but at the end of the day their real goal is to win the 2nd Cold War.
