What's the point of buying these if you can buy the same phones with the same chipset with other brands, with google support? I mean, if i was in china, I may consider it. Since there is no google in china, outside? I don't think so.

Even as a Huawei phone user, these phones sell a tad expensive considering the prices are for china

The design get finalized 6-9 sometimes 12 months before launch and guess what, 5 months before honor 50 launch they were owned by huawei.

the made for chinese people so they dont care about GMS and in China HMS is the best sevices

Huawei would not be... moreThey had kirin and balong (they used tsmc, they were designing them though) but America forced them to stop because they were using some American technology. But of course you would not get it, you know only half the story. Do you know that samsung and Qualcomm are using huawei patterns? Do you know huawei was a leading 5g infrastructure company?

Now about huawei and government relationship, firstly why would they share data with them, secondly even if they do it we don't have proof but we have proof apple gives data to the American government whenever they want it.

Huawei got black listed when they surpassed apple and they started making sales in America. what America they did was illegal, they did not have proof but of course who would say anything bad about American government? Who could they say anything about the perfect country which is on war 95% of the time they exist.

The worst thing about all this is how much hypocritical these people are. Now they can get their chips to support RYYB sensors which is mostly exclusive to huawei. And recently they have almost ironed out all the kinks with it recently with their Kirin chips.

2. RYYB Sensors from huawei has exclusive making contract to sony(as far as i know)

Anonymous, 23 Sep 2021Why does Huawei get so much and so prominently placed cover... moreBecause $$$$.

Why do you think this site keeps posting each 3 months about "xxx million of users upgraded to HarmonyOS" and that time they posted like 3 times the tutorial to sideload stores on those GMS-less Huawei devices.

Same goes for reviews of that one folded Huawei device which was super expensive and only available in China. Yes, it was an interesting device and all, but that's like reviewing those Caviar devices.

NicoLPFR, 23 Sep 2021So the developing world doesn't deserve news coverage?... moreIt has a pretty limited market outside of China, for good reasons, so the prominent coverage here just makes me wonder...

BTW, India is implementing a ban on Huawei telecom equipment and removing existing installations, too. Again, for very good national security reasons.

These are almost Honor 50/50 Pro clones. I guess this proves Huawei/Honor are still working very tightly together. Sadly this will give the US the reason they need to go after Honor. But it was kind of obvious Honor could never build a major and truly independent smartphone company within a few months.

It's not the first time you post such egregious comment. And btw, Huawei was a top brand in Europe (you know, developed world) just a year ago before their chip supply was cut off. Plus, it remains near if not at the top in terms of camera quality so any tech geek would be interested to see what becomes of it after the US bans.

Why does Huawei get so much and so prominently placed coverage here? Most in the developed world don't care about it....

What I really don't like with these kinds of devices is how the main camera is almost flagship level, but the ultrawide and telephoto (if the manufacturer is generous enough to give one) is just on par with those that are found in 2019 budget phones.
I would seriously appreciate it more if they would just make the ultrawide camera sensor bigger at 1/2.55" at the smallest, so that the quality difference wouldn't be as drastic when switching from this camera to the main sensor. I don't mind not having a telephoto camera anymore, especially if they're just going to give something like the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. Having two excellent quality rear cameras with minimal to almost no difference in quality between them is just what I would ever need.

Huawei would not be facing this punishment if not considered an agent of government.

Want to make 5G phones? Need to open own semicon factory to make chips and modem with 0% of qualcomm tech.

1) RYYB is just more light sensitive than RGGB, but at the cost of colour accuracy and DR. This is why P50 Pro is back to RGGB.

2) it probably is variant of the omnivision (1/1.56") used by P50 Pro, and not imx700y. Does not make sense giving Nova something they could not use for P series.
