The trade war actually started under Obama back in 2015 / 2016 when it became clear China is out innovating the US. Even back in 2013 Chinese supercomputer was taking over the #1 spot so Obama banned China from buying Intel Xeon processors. China started designing its own processors after that.

It'll probably boost the US tech industry in the short term but like you said China will accelerate their investment in the semiconductor industry and will probably develop faster as a result.

US cannot block ARM. But it can cut off all Huawei chips production. And that's what happened. Even SMIC that is based in China can not sell to Huawei. So how on earth is Huawei going to make its chip? The new US administration might change that, but who knows. Nobody wins. Huawei business will be severely affected, China is forced to invest heavily in semiconductor production but that will take many years to catch up (if at all possible). Nobody wins at the end. US is damaging its tech industry and cost for everything will go up.

So sad, they have to many and will have to throw away so many of them. This is s10+ but 1,5 years old design. Not for me. I still think the p40lite 5g is the best option but lack the amoled.
