This is really dirty and cheap thinking. They can't tolerate for Huawei growth, nothing else. If china people stop using iPhone then they can't survive. If China play same way then everyone will be in trouble. All major company industry in China

--VM--, 20 May 2019If they created OWN OS . No problem . Than what about whatsapp... moreI am not a typical smartphone user. I don't care about any of that. To give you perspective I would still be using a Lumia 950 XL if I had not needed a bluetooth app that syncs with a DSP that only is made for Android. Is a shame many people cannot live without an app.

This is really bad for Huawei and fans that like and buy Huawei phones. Other people don't care as they buy phones from different brands. But Huawei isn't threat. Every company does the same as spying and tracking.

It doesn't matter if Huawei is number one or number two in phone sales. They will always be behind Apple because Apple make their own OS and they own their own App store.

Luxor, 21 May 2019Software side is easy but hardware wise it will be really diffic... moreI think Huawei can buy the chips like semiconductor or some other components required for making smartphone from other suppliers in the world such as Samsung until Huawei can produce their own chip used for their smartphones like their own Kirin processor chip. They don't need to heavily depend upon the U.S supplier on the smartphone components. As long as they can come up with their own OS ecosystem, they can survive and even complete with the U.S manufacturers.

Do u think Trump is an apple fanboy gsmarena user?

huawei is a threat! Deal with it! Founded by a military technologist in a communist country with ties to the government. In China btw Google is BANNED! That's ok but banning Huawei from US is not?

I live in Europe. I had a Huawei P Smart. I do NOT trust Huawei tho.
Huawei is in no way irreplaceable! Can switch to Samsung any time no problem! Not worth the risk.

Huawei mobiles & telecom equipment are banned in USA, yet they are number 2 in the Mobile segment! Huawei can do all things asked by US Government, yet they will be banned because US Government is apparently protecting ineffecient corporations unable to compete with Chinese corporations who are becoming innovative, competitive and becoming smarter in launching high tech products in the global scale....this USSR strategy with USA flag...

It's simply easier for Huawei to comply with whatever the US gov asked them to do than develop their own operating system and make every single chip that goes into their phone.
