Anonymous, 20 May 2019I’m not even American, but I would love someone like Trump to l... moreand where is the truth on what's happening? how many people has demanded USA to forward proof that Huawei is using their tech in an unethical way yet they have showed nothing? how is it that these attacks to Huawei coincidentally happen when USA is in the middle of trade war with China? USA claims the Chinese government and specifically Huawei are playing dirty yet not a single proof is shown.

I won't be surprised if Android blacklists Samsung, Xiaomi, Redmi, OnePlus next, if they start making more profits than iPhone and other American companies. And soon after that, all Chinese smartphone makers could be targeted, for making great growth and profits.

There should be group action lawsuits against Google in the United States and Huawei should take Google and the US Administration to the International Court of Justice.

I have been hoping for more Operating Systems on smartphones for the longest. Maybe this will help create more Operating Systems.

huawei became the 2nd largest phone manufacturer in world after samsung in first spot and bypassed apple......

NOT....!!!!!!!!!!

its a trade war. nothing else. if they start manufacturing phones with snapdragon for the US and pour in money to Qualcomm and other companies that manufacture the modems and other parts etc, eventually giving the US a share, in addition to the already existing software giant GOOGLE, this will be over sooner than anyone can imagine. anyways, after hearing this news, i got rid of my 2 mate 10s and p30 lite right away.

My reaction to this is to uninstall/deactivate most google services on my Android Phone.

Remove Chrome - Install Brave
Remove Maps - Install Here WeGo
Remove Home
Remove Assistant

I will also move away from other google services like Gmail and Drive, and use other services instead.

I do not like to be trapped.

Anonymous, 20 May 2019Anti-America comments inboundDon't mix south america with USA. South america doesn't have good relations with USA. EU doesn't too, so taxes and other trades were go down, with cars being the next target now in time pause. And now China together with other countries doesn't have good relations and trade with USA. Coincidence? NO, when you have a politics like Trump is doing you simply earn that other countries turn the face against you, give you the back and leave you lonely. So good luck with that.

In the last G8-G20 a lot of presidents where avoiding talks with Trump and they were avoiding photos with him too. As it's say, what you sow you will reap.
