I live in USA and using P30 Pro EMUI 11, very excellent phone. I've disabled ALL Ads from Google and Huawei, I do not see any targeted ads.

I've uninstalled HiSearch, HiVoice, HiTouch, Facebook, and other system apps and removed all bloatware, my phone has 3 ½ days SOT (Screen on Time).

I would love the Mate 40 Pro, I don't mind the GMS problem as there are workarounds and I don't mind getting my hands dirty.

Samsung, Apple, Nokia, Motorola, OnePlus...etc nice of these companies can compete with Huawei Technology, that's basically why they're banned from USA. Huawei is a rising Giant and they made this trade war to cripple their product and manufacturing market. Huawei is still struggling but they'll make a comeback.

They say Huawei is tied to CCP, but where is the evidence?

I'm going to continue buying Huawei even if it's banned because it still supports GSM carriers.

Ice had Samsung phones and apple phones, they're nothing compared to Huawei. 💪

It's actually not that hard to avoid Google apps. Use Outlook, Waze and Vimeo instead of Gmail, Google maps and YouTube.
