Huawei is being brought to its knees. If this is indeed true, they will close shop pretty soon....

I was looking forward to the new Mate. Now not so much anymore.

The Note 10 is crap, uses the same photo sensor as the S7 , so the only phone worth looking at is then maybe the new iphone 11.
How convenient to kill them of when they bring out a flagship phone next to US apple.

Which is why I bought the P30 Pro the other day. Nothing else really interested me. I just need HTC to launch another flagship now...

Also came from Samsung and went with the P30 Pro. Just hope they keep google support.

So what Google Apps are the absolute deal breakers for you? I reckon most can be replaced with another app without much worry or inconvenience. Have at it, where those lists at?

Don't know why anyone would use maps. Waze is the only GPS you need.

Google Maps and the Play Store, period.

I tend to rely on Waze. I know my way to work well enough to just use it if my commute is at a different time. As of late, waze has been throwing me into the WORST streets opposed to the better suggestion google maps made when I decided I'm checking its recommendation too...

I am sure you will be able to find a way to side-load gapps (it is in Huawei's interest to somehow 'leak' something themselves). Hopefully it will impact sales enough to drive down prices...

I'm going to need more than that moony... What on the PlayStore? The ability to check out silly games and apps often to download and then delete or just ignore (unless you actually invest a lot of time in using your device to play mobile games etc?)
