It's identical in all other aspects to the regular 5G variant of the P40.

Uncle D, 26 Feb 2021So sad to see where Huawei is landed now and even more sad ... moreOfc it's gonna be more than enuf 4 daily use.
I use a SD820 phone daily ffs (though tethered to a power source like adapter, laptop, power-bank, etc)

YUKI93, 26 Feb 2021Hmmm... I'm not sure if this is a good idea. I see a l... moreSecondhand is still secondhand. After having owned the 5G version for almost a year I could easily say given the current pace the market is moving, buying a brand new 4G version of the phone is a viable option.

Never underestimate the Chinese dragon. Huawei will not fall. Wait and see!!

Kriegsherr, 27 Feb 2021right now xiaomi makes as good phones as Huawei but with ha... moreNot really. Demands depends on one preferences. As for example, I need a great point & shoot camera, for the price. Bought P40 5G brand new here at $500 in my country. On that price range, no other brands offer greater quality & versatility in terms of camera performance, except P40. I've use the phone, with no GMS, for 2 month already. It still a flagship-grade smartphone, with all the apps I need are available.

To be honest, I dont miss GMS. For sure if it has, it will be better. But at the moment? Worth every penny.

It should've been $400

The hardware is worth much more than lack of google.
Just like Apple users can live up with apple map, if you really like the device it isn't such a big deal (as long as you can find equivellent app)

right now xiaomi makes as good phones as Huawei but with half the price. why would someone buy a Huawei for double the price and albeit without GMS. Huawei used to be the best in cameras, others have caught them recently. no point behind paying so much for a Huawei.

Mjc, 26 Feb 2021Wasnt the kirin 990 worse than exynos 990 why would they use thatnot worse in every aspect. Yes its slightly worse in GPU but mulitcore CPU performance efficiency and sustained performance is still miles ahead of E990.

YUKI93, 26 Feb 2021Hmmm... I'm not sure if this is a good idea. I see a l... moreIt's only because they have a severe shortage of chips. They must have a few 4g Kirin 990s left in stock so they want to use them up and have some phones available for sale. They now have no 5g phones in stock in their official stores in China at all. They only release them in small batches at regular intervals and they are extremely difficult to buy in panic sales. They can only be bought from resellers in China who charge 10-20% more than the official retail price.
