You can protect and help the companies in your country, but you totally cannot attack the companies from other countries.

Where is the fair trade that always mentioned by the American?

The US is a dirty player.

Still no proof of Huawei doing any wrong

Hopefully China bans Apple now as retaliation and Huawei creates a new OS

Game over Huawei, you fought bravely, sorry you lost :D

You see that is why is not good to keep all the eggs in one basket. This is not only about Huawei but it's about every big phone manufacturer (except o pixel phones), because when you become heavily reliant on someone else's software and cloud services this is what might happen . What if Google decides to block access to oppo , xiaomi , Lenovo and to every other Chinese phone manufacturer. What's gonna happen with them. That's why it's better to develop your own software and make your own apps / app store and be prepared for this kind of scenario.

This is more troubling from a political/national perspective. Are the two main operating system controlled by America? The need for more OS providers is clear. There is definitely a need for an OS which collects NO information unless you specifically allow I.e. traffic flow.
Yip I miss Symbian.

Btw: i also bough... moreWell I would say sorry for your purchase, but it's still a crackin phone.I'm not loyal to any company so I don't care which I use and no matter which company you use none are without their issues and non can be trusted.

I doubt the sanction will last as the Huawei user base is too large for android to lose.

And even though I might have come across as rude before, I was being honest ....Google won't care about a minority of users not using their services.
It would have to be a monumental movement away from Google to get them sweating

Huawei will find another way of making it to the top. its far better than iphone and thats why Trump wants it down but no worries over that, Huawei will make it to the top by 2021.

Anonymous, 20 May 2019Wow way to show Google, they'll miss you I'm sure If orhers did the same, it would help.

Btw: i also bought a mate 20 lite today.

From consumer perspective, it's bad, but if you are the president, of course you will try to protect a company from your own country, nothing wrong to that. I don't really give a shit about all this. I never buy huawei phone anyway, even without all these thing. They still late for any Android update, so kudos to that. Mid range phone like like nova 3i, still stuck with Android 8. While xiaomi note 7 already with Android 9. Huawei just really releasing way too much phone, and didn't bother about update. This time I go with the American! Don't ever locked your bootloader Huawei!

All a stupid farce thanks to Donald Chump. It's all an plan to help poor iPhone sales. You watch Samsung and other Android device makers will be next. All so they can get Apple up to top. Simple answer make a killer camera phone that people will buy. Yes iphone are beautiful expensive and ok on specs. But no killer camera. If iphobe 11 comes with Hauwei p20 or P30 camera I will buy one tomoz. Go on Apple do it. iPhone X with triple Camera.

Life is just not about technology at the palm of your hands. It's about the simplicity of life with minimal use of technology involved. Let's say imagine the entire grid collapse.

sm4rt4ss, 20 May 2019Samsung is South Korean. Not only that, Samsung employs thousands of people in the US, has R&D and poduction facilities as well as their North American headquarters. That measure would be as non sense as banning Toyota or Honda which have also invested heavily in the US
