17 December 2019
Instead, the phones will launch with Huawei Mobile Services - the company's alternative to the Google app package.

i'd still buy it! google or not :) i'm confident that i can fix it , esp if i get discount for the lack of features :D

IMO the argument about processor speed is way overblown.
End-users operate like every time they launch an app they use a stopwatch to assess the speed. Just my 2 cents BLESS.

[deleted post]The whole point about android is to be Google less... To offer a huge range of dynamic apps.
Swiftkey is way better than Google keyboard
New pipe is way better than the Google YouTube app
Brave browser is better than chrome.
ProtonMail is very good too.
As for maps. There are a whole range of other alternatives.

Anonymous, 17 Dec 2019Dead On Arrival This is a very nice lie.
There arent much people who will miss google services.
Mostly people from USA which are not relevant to anyone.
What they caused have they fixed if not they and only they will suffer from consequences they made.

dxo is reliable and performs very decent tests.

Snapdragon 865 beat the Kirin 990 5G by a whooping 45%. Even the 855 beats the Kirin 990 5G.
Where is the performance increase when they can't even beat last gen?

Fintoyu, 17 Dec 2019DXO RANK IS FOR CLUELESS PEOPLE !!! DXO is no longer a trustable... moreNot really, it's about the same what I think and see even here in test shots on gsma. While some brands are still about less noise, Huawei brings besides no noise, more detail, hdr and better low light. It's actually impressive they can rank close despite being left behind by huawei.

Pretty much death sentence for market share in Europe and other regions except China, does not matter how much it grows without google service will be inferior device to competition

MarkusLeto, 18 Dec 2019My reason for switching from Nokia Windows phone to Huawei. Star... moreNot for me, the Nokia/Microsoft Lumia still produce a far better image quality than all the Leica co-engineered Huawei phones... that is until the Mate 30 Pro comes in. I may still have my current Lumia 950 XL as my daily driver, but I really am thinking very VERY seriously about buying one as my deGoogled Android companion.

Marty89, 17 Dec 2019Because nobody has former Nokia camera engineers except for Huawei.Excuse me, but Apple wants to have a word with you about that.

NotAnOpinion, 17 Dec 2019Mate 30 series w/out GMS after 3-months internationally - DOA! ... moreSo, you think that not a single employee from Apple/Google/Amazon/Samsung etc. was never arrested? At least CN admitted a mistake and paid off the worker. We don't even know the exact specifics about that case.
Jumping to conclusions...merit of modern westerners.
