Don't get me wrong, is a good phone but for the price they are asking for it doesn't worth it, is not 20% more expensive than a p40 pro, is over 100% more expensive and does like 5% more than it while still losing the camera game to an 1 year old phone and camera is like the main selling point to most phones these days.So i'm expecting the s22 ultra to be on par with a p40 pro regarding the camera which is disappointing and bothers me what happened to huawei . My next phone will probably be a samsung or xiaomi

S21 Ultra beats the shit out of P40 Pro in every other departament. I own both of them and even if P40 Pro would still have GMS, I would still chose S21 Ultra over it. Your passion is photos and you make money out of it, then buy a camera and beats the hell of all other phones on the market.

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2021Not every one is looking for camera quality alone.Exactly. Besides majority of phones nowadays, above a certain price, have very good cameras. Is just a matter of preference.
I would take everyday usage and simplicity of using a phone, over camera performance.
And if anybody is such a camera geek, just buy a dedicated camera. Still better than any phone camera on the market.

At night is a clear winner, you don't even have to use those night modes that make your picture look like is cartoon (especially on xiaomi), ultra wide of samsung is not even usable in low light unlike huawei and i love the fact that i got both face id and fingerprint. This is hands down the best price/value phone right now and it took me few hours to install google, now i need if harmony breaks google as still being on android 10 is the biggest letdown for me and i really love the new privacy features of android 12

What's the reason of buying a Huawei phone if then, all your apps are GMS related?
Just buy an Android phone, simple. Camera quality is no longer a viable reason to buy a Huawei phone.

Think of Air Canada for Canadian air travel, how many times has the government bailed them out. Most banks in the USA. I can't be certain of same type situations in other parts of the world but Huawei being tied to the CCP is a sure thing.

Brand new doesn't mean based on pre existing sources. Maybe our definitions are different???
