  • If you ban Huawei, you might as well ban all the other China brands too like Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Lenovo.

  • someome said in youtube that cisco or windows OS orjust connecting to the internet have backdoors to steal your data, this was discovered by britain? is this true? can china make new OS for personal ciomputers? i am fed up with windows OS that is bloaded, slow, unable to delete, unable to uninstall, unable for users to know what the OS is doing... no security, all updates are useless securities, unable to uninstall "buy from windows" main company., too many bugs and etc

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hey man Thx for the video My device now (P30 Life) has Android and Play Store What I know is that It'll have the current Android version it has for life and no updates will be released..... My Question, am I going to still be able to use the Google PLAYSTORE??? and by the end of it all, can I bypass this problem if I root my phone and install Custom Rom o. It? Thanks

  • Excellent psentation, Marques. 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.

  • To the publisher of this video: I really appreciate your consumer-biased view, however, as an engineer with somewhat of a security background, I want to confirm that other players (gov't, etc.) have their "influence" within Huawei products. This is not to exclude other notable companies, but especially during a time with the boon of "social media," "5G technology," and such, it's hard to say that this company is interested in what America stands for. Sure, call it capitalism, but freedom is what is at stake here. I heard China already has this "points system" based on this "AI" bull. Looks like communism is doing werk. Encore!

  • huawei's phone sales wont hurt as much as Apple's phone sales. most of the Huawei's phone sales come from China, not the US. in a game of attrition, huawei would probably win.
