HarmonyOS 2.0 reaches 90 million users, 8 new users are added every second

03 September 2021
This number is a mix of new devices sold (with Harmony out of the box) and old ones that switched away from Android.

"Why is harmony"OS" faster, effecient, blablabla...... ". So Huawei said it so it must be true. And even if it is, aren't some UI faster, more effecient and use less battery than others?
"Why is the programming language called HML". We call it "killer wale" but they call it "orca" , so it must be different

How comes it has it's native apps and native coding language called HarmonyOS Markup Language (HML), if it is Android? I would continue but I find it rather pointless.

HarmonyOS even used to have the Android Q Easter egg.

This is total bull, I wonder if you know that or just playing a parrot. Do your research before talking. AOSP layer doesn't mean that architecture of OS is same as Android. Only thing that you got right is that both are based on Linux.

HarmonyOS - skin : Android - OS

Adul Al Salami Kebab, 03 Sep 2021Android is open source code, its not a rip-off or clone. Ha... moreyou clearly don't know what you're talking about. you're clueless. you're confusing Android skins and OS. wanna know the difference? Here are some examples of legit mobile OS:
Tizen - OS : OneUI - skin
iOS - OS : ColorOS - skin
BadaOS - OS : OriginOS - skin
HarmonyOS - skin : Android - skin

all the examples you gave are only skins of Android and same goes for harmonyOS. it's just as a new OS as ColorOS, OxygenOS, and other Android skins pretending to be a new OS by having the word "OS" at the end of their names but that's as far as they can go because they are only that; skins

bottomline is, HarmonyOS is nothing but an Android skin no matter how you Huawei fanboys/Google haters will say. don't take my word for it, Google it yourself and see how Huawei removed all traces of the word "android" in the HarmonyOS source code

harmonyOS is just a short way of saying "this is EMUI based entirely on Android but with a different name, for short, it's still Android" OS

let's be real here. the reason some people "enjoy" this is because of their hate for Google. how ironic that China is one of the most guilty countries in terms of invasion of privacy. I'll gladly use my GMS running Android phone, thank you very much

If harmonyOS is "android ripoff" android is also a "linux ripoff"...

Fanboy of All brands, 03 Sep 2021I have questions. 1. How many apps are available? 2. c... moreLets put it this way, their smart tv is bundled with Android box. Or atleast from where I am from.

Looks like "90 million" number is hyped.
But still if huawei give the real data, maybe the number of users still in million, and that's great.

Hope harmonyOS getting bigger, so the US cant freely ban everything again.

Mikele, 03 Sep 2021How? Do you have Huawei or Honor products to confirm tha... moreUseless OS ripping Android. They can't innovate their own Os.

UI is one thing,
Apps avaibility is quite another

Just download game and play, thinking that its developers work for free. Gms keep developers happy, that's the secret. The secret works for Apple app store too. Problem is, if your phone has already gms, would you install hms? And would it attractive enough to attract developer to switch from gms, or maintain app for new store?
