crazy development, how smart is to have a soft display wrapped around the device
Surely they can't seriously expect people to pay those prices? Significantly more than double the price of the Samsung equivalent?
You guys have to realize Huawei occupies no real estate in the minds of most American consumers. This argument is tossed around by the minority. The majority of Americans don't visit sites like this or tech tube channels to check out phones coming next year or to read about 5g wars. They focus on the phone they have.
Most people have an opinion about apple. Most Americans have no feeling about Huawei. They don't know they exist. I dont even think I've seen a Huawei laptop in Best Buy and they aren't banned. trump has made his issue with China. I dont recall him ever speaking the words Huawei. This 5g issue is the most exposure they've gotten in America.
No one is going to convince Americans their iPhone is anything other than a luxury device. The majority of them are happy with their phones. Side loading or not side loading is not even a choice. Its a issue that doesn't exist for most Americans.

I got the p40 Lite. Huawei actively had blocked all the side loading of options as they are found. Previously you could use a number of techniques, like restoring a backup but the latest version of their backup software won't let you do it. It maybe possible but it is not trivial and not in the realm of normal people anymore and on this trajectory it won't be possible without custom firmware soon.
Yeah, the thing is: even with GMS installed, push notifications are mostly hit-or-miss.

Most if not all comments concerning GMS are not about finding a solution or asking a question but rather trolling. It's common knowledge now that one can easily sideload Google on any new Hiawei phone and that most important Apps actually work without having GMS by a simple workaround. Trolls can't stay quiet otherwise they won't be trolls.
How is this even relevant. You are comparing apples and bananas (pun intended). This is a unique phone. No iPhone (or any other Android phone) comes even close to its experience.

Or, you could buy an iPhone SE for each people in TWO 4-people families.
Anonymous, 15 May 2020In Russia, many have this phone, they bought also folded model of Samsung, and they compared. ... moreand yet the chinese OEMs try so hard and desperate to enter the western market, the western market is the biggest market by a long shot, the people are wealthier and can afford more stuff hence why Xioami is happy to sell their crappy mi10 for 1000 euro in germany while selling it for around 500 in china and the rest of asia. It's simple math dude, people got more money so they can and do spend more cash. Why do you think apple sells their stuff so extremely expensive in china or india? They know that most people there cant afford it but the ones that can afford it have more than enough, the distribution of wealth in those country are still ridiculous and there like 10% of super rich and 90 % of people who can't even afford a 200 dollar low end phone
One person can buy Galaxy fold along with an iPhone 11pro and go to a vacation date with the same amount of money the Huawei fold costs.
3300$ lowest price !
4500$ on Amazon.

Since when has Huawei shied away from dubious marketing? If they completely walked around the term "glass", it means they have not a shred of glass in that screen, unlike the Z Flip.
