    Why don’t you save yourself some time and investigate the 5g issue and why Huawei will have it next year and why the US won’t have a seat at the table and other countries will. What you talking about is a waste of time.

            So, Because trump believes huawei products spy, this means everyone will buy P Smart Z because it has a notch less screen

                  The already released models shouldn't be affected by the ban. At least that's what we're told by Huawei. It's the new models (Mate 30 and onward) that most likely won't have any Google apps etc. pre-installed.

                It's the technology inside this phone. Apple and Samsung cannot compare to there camera technology! 40mp with a 50x zoom no way apple or Samsung can compare. USA don't want folks sharing this kind of content.

                    Everyone making so much noise about banning of Huawei... What about China banning Google, YouTube, Facebook, twitter, ebay????? If anything, America should ban more companies to make it equal footing, no???

                              Being such a huge company I am sure they will find a loophole, couldn't they just change location and be based out of another country? Don't play with their money. Trust me they will figure out something out

                                  Too many ignorant morons don't get the fact that China is not a free market or open economy and that the ChiCom dictatorship controls every company and entity in China. These utter fools think that they are dealing with a country based on the rule of law. The only law in China is whatever the Communist party of China decides is the law - there is no independent legislative power or independent judiciary in China. All Chinese companies serve the ChiCom Party and its interests. Let's just forget about the issues of technology theft, copyright infringement, technology transfer requirements, and all the rest that comes with doing business in China. The fact is, that Huawai, like every other Chinese company is controlled by the ChiCom Party and PLA and will do their bidding if ordered to. Anyone who allows Huawei or any other ChiCom company to build and essentially control a crucial infrastructure system like communications is basically ceding that infrastructure to the control of the ChiCom Party.

                                      The Chinacom onslaught on American dominance is done. Today is September 1, 2019. Trump has ended this scourge. Time will tell how things wind up.

                                            My thoughts exactly. Well my theory is I'm gonna buy P30 Pro next month and it'll probably be good for ~2 years and by then, if there is God out there, Trump won't be in charge of the US anymore...

                                            It's China. You can't ban anything in the land of bootleg and piracy. This has no power there. People will flash those new Google software faster than you can blink. If you would even want them to begin with. Because Google services were banned and unusable without a VPN in China for a while now. Not only that, but usa market is just a tiny fraction for huawei. So, not a big loss on huawei's part.

What I’d like to knoiw is †his: how viable is it for me ( in the USA) to buy a Huawei just for the camera? I’d keep my Pixel 2 for everything else. So all i would need is a cable for downloading images or hopefully bluetooth. I’d love to see a vcideo on this subject.
