    P40 pro is still camera King. even S22 ultra Photos are worse sometimes. Selfies with 3dtof are way superior. Dunno why no one includes it anymore.
    And with googlefier google works like 95%.

    PLEASE, smartphone company's, build more phones like this !!!

      Huawei P40 is best ... If you are a Huawei user than Google is not an issue, infact having Google authority in phone is an issue.

        Say what you want... playstore is a issue...everytime theres a update on clash of clan... i have to wait for the latest apk to load it.... i cant do in app purchases in the game cause i dont have playstore. i have to go to my samsung phone and buy from there. its a great phone but i think the screen is way too small. are the hassle of not having playstore worth it.. i dont think so... i think the san\msung note 20 ultra was a way better option with a way bigger screen.

          Huawei P40 Pro, the best phone anyone can have.
          Long life battery, perfect design, optimal performance. All these features for a good price.
          as a matter of google play, i dont need google play, because i will always use Huawei and i will transfer the same app through cloning.

              I am really satisfied with the p40 pro... I can easily side load APK files for apps, no need to have google play store. The camera is superb, the battery time is decent.

                  Sir I am network errors issue in 8 ball pool game on huawie y6p plz help me tnx

                    Thank you GSMARENA! you guys have gone beyond to review phones and have covered almost all of the areas I as a someone interested in phone tech looks for in a review.

                    I wonder why no one has brought up the subject of a lack of updates being released to AppGallery? When using APKPURE you will often see apps showing availability of new updates but huawei appgallery shows nothing? Also I found Apkpure to have duplicate apps present.

                                I'll stick with full frame and option to change lenses for as long as possible.
                                Can't beat quality of good optics.

                                Not seen sports shooters, fashion photography or wedding photographers using phones camera instead😏 of cameras.

If the latter become a legitimate factor in my country i will be concerned, but until then huawei spying on me is irrelevant.

                                      I am considering getting the P40 pro for some time for 2 main reasons: 1) the best phone on the market overall; and 2) free of google spying;
                                      However, there is an important point, which has not been addressed by any review anywhere so far, and that is the mobile banking apps. I am tired of reading about how to run the BS social media apps on the "no-google" phones, but banking is something else. Obviously, you can't trust you credit and debit card security to third parties, no matter how "trustworthy" they may seem.
                                      Can someone confirm whether google somehow intermediates, secures and most importantly authenticates the connection with the banks' servers? What I mean is will I get the apps "officially" working if i download them as apk's from playstore and install manually on the p40 pro?
