    Anyone else with a Huawei phone?

    I love my Huawei Mate 20 Pro, it's been fantastic. But what about this thing that Trump has pushed Google into? No android updates?? Don't like that at all.

    I wonder how Huawei will get around this? I'm sure they will come up with something.

      Yes, I've got one running Nougat. Not unduly worried after reading this

      Huawei will continue to have access to the version of the Android operating system available through the open source licence that is free to anyone who wishes to use it.

      But, according to the source, Google will stop providing technical support and collaboration for Android and Google services to Huawei.

      But there are other Google updates that might get blocked, not just Android. I'm concerned about the security implications.

      And no play store apparently.

      Edit: Existing phones fine.

      I don't particularly like Google and "other search engines are available". My Gmail isn't my main email account, so my only worry is would Google be able to prevent Gmailers sending emails to my phone? Can't see how they would as they would be going through a third party website (in my case, Yahoo Mail).

      You’re concerned about security but bought an Huawei phone?

      write their own OS/extensions/appstore. unless you have a deep need to use all the crappy bundled apps andriod ships with (play books? hangouts?) it may be doing you a favour. maybe Huawei will do some field research, and find not everyone on the world wants Pinyin and Hindu input active by default?

      worth noting that many phone makers (and networks) dislike the control Google exerts, forcing them to install/default their services, this may have wider consequences if it triggers a new branch of underlying OS.

      So what phone do you have then ? Huawei, iPhone and Samsung are all made in China.
