Apps are what makes a smartphone and a smartphone that doesn't have such a platform as Playstore (that has this humongous collection of Apps) preinstalled in it, especially when we take into account that there are other devices out there that is equally or almost as good in everything else, does make it relatively less recommendable.
People like smartphones because of how convenient they're and
therefore Huawei, whether we like it or not, is in a situation where it's products however excellent it maybe is quite inconvenient and cumbersome relative to its competitors.
I can see all recent Honor and Huawei devices recieve low rating even tho GSMA praises them overall. Is it because they lack Google services? I don't think it's fair to lower the score because of this.

Huawei should unlock their bootloaders and then at least you have the option to install custom roms/firmware, gapps, etc. Personally I would prefer not having all of googles bloatware, facebook, etc installed especially now that you don't have the option to uninstall some of their services. The only app I would use is the play store, but then there are alternative app stores.. I look forwards to seeing GDSA
No value because of no Google services. UI is bad. huawei update plans are terrible. price is expensive. pop up camera is not good. So its not good at all.
Adul Al Salami Kebab, 12 Mar 2020This took WAY to long to come to Europe... I asked my father when he was on vacation to get me... moreWhich model come with p35 + 6000mah ?
Btw 8 A53 cores is efficient but lack some punch
99% of people here never heard of phone clone app,plus google apps like google maps are crap
This took WAY to long to come to Europe... I asked my father when he was on vacation to get me a TECNO smartphone with 6000mAh battery & Helio P35 instead... But I most say this smartphone looks amazing if I were gonna buy one this would be it. Current plan I am waiting for 5G to be cheap before upgrading again. :)
In the performance section , GPU Benchmark , Correction that Mali G72 MP12 is in Kirin 970 not Kirin 980 .

Then there is the Huawei P40 Lite, also lacking Google Services, and yet it has both ClearKey and Widevine L3 support and Netflix runs fine there. So it is possible for a Huawei/Honor phone to have Widevine, and yet...

Huawei has already released a Playstore alternative & working on getting more and more app developers on board. They've also contacted TomTom for a Maps alternative. They'll also develop other replacements over time.
As for why i care about Huawei? I like their products. I find their current products better than the mainstream ones. They bring some of the most essential hardware upgrades and camera systems on their phones. I admire that.
The article mentions the k30 as having Google's blessing but isn't it only available in China so far? If so then it also would have no Google services onboard
