    Huawei and Google Problem

    I just got my P30 Pro series from Huawei when I heard the news that Google won't support the device from this brand anymore. I just really hope that my smartphone won't be affected in the near future. I really hope that they will be able to sort things out.

    Re: Huawei and Google Problem

    I only got my P30 about 10 days ago however on hearing that news and fearing I may be stuck with a phone I can't upgrade or may end up with security holes I exchanged it for a Samsung S10.

    Problem is what do you do, wait and "possibly" be stuck with something you can't upgrade or update or will it be a storm in a teacup. As I was within my 14 day exchange period I erred on the side of caution

    ...and now you're stuck with a phone that will receive at least 1 upgrade, 3 months late

    I wouldn't get a Huawei if it didn't offer access to Google services.

    A part of me is also hoping that we keep getting android without google services.

    There was a time I went way out of my way to get rid of google services on my phone, the result was much better battery life. But the fact that huawei phones can't have their bootloaders unlocked means that isn't a possibility either. Do hope everything gets fixed.
