    Hi Marques, I am not sure how many people wondering the same as me now... What will happen to their Huawei phones after Google's latest announcement in regards stopping android updates and google supports...To be honest I was just about to make a purchase. But now, I am really hesitating to chose huawei. It is not exactly clear to me what I am loosing out on, if I chose a huawei device? If you have the time, could you shed lights on this for us please? Thank you!

    @Marques Brownlee Can you comment on the recent Huawei phones being BANNED by Google? I own two Huawei phones. Love them both. I have a Mate SE that I gave to my son and he loves it. I got a Mate 20 Lite. I did have a One Plus 6 with 8GB Ram and 256GB Storage and I hated the One Plus 6. Bad battery life, bad audio, terrible display, and horrible camera. Most of this stuff in my opinion was software related but One Plus refused to fix it. I bought the Huawei Mate SE and actually liked it better than my One Plus 6 and so I sold the OP6 for a huge loss and then I got the Mate 20 Lite. But I've been waiting for the Android Pie update and the EMUI 9.0 update and it sounds like I might not ever get any updates and IF I do, then I could lose Google Play and the suite of Google Apps and Tools. I am within the return window for my Mate 20 Lite and I can get something else but I really like my Mate 20 Lite. I want to keep it under $300. The Motorola G7 Power is the only other thing I can find but the display and camera aren't near as good. Are all Chinese phones banned from Google, or just Huawei? This is such a sad story. Please help with your suggestions. Do a video on phones under $300 that work in the USA. I need AT&T LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 17. In the USA, we have a selection of the Samsung Galaxy or the iPhone or the Pixel. I hate the Galaxy and the iPhone and the Pixel is WAY overpriced. This is ridiculous.

    Wow as always You deliver a high standard. funny fact. i got the exact same colour of the P30 pro, the 8 gb ram 256 gb memory version.. for the same reason. (had, have the P10 plus , but that one has a weak battery by now.must) point out one thing though. had issues with the selfie camera. doesnt seem to focuse that well. but then again it could be the screen shield i got on messing that up?. again thanx .

    Why would you want the volume rocker and power button on different sides?
    I see no use in that, just put them both on the right side (where your fingers are)

    • coolymoody
      coolymoody 4 days ago +3

      Because you can easily press the volume down button instead of the power or the other way round by accident. When I take selfies and I want to capture using the volume buttons, I tend to switch off the screen most of the time instead of actually capturing. I don't know if it is just me and my small hands or if this is a common thing.

    Great camera, not so sure about the phone. Anyone else having brightness display problems? Getting tired of adjusting my brightness 20 times a day (not exaggerating)! Yes I have all my power saving options and auto brightness shut off. I've read this is a feature in Huawei phones thank can't be disabled. If so, and this is not corrected, I'll never buy another product from them. If I'm missing something, I'd appreciate some help.

    Hi, I noticed something interesting about the camera of this phone. When you zoom through window that has a mesh, the camera filters it out. You should give it a try and see. I was taking a picture of a bird when I realized this. It is quite interesting.

    Doubt! Does this phone allow you to zoom in when the resolution is 40mpx or do you need to constantly change the setting to go from full res to zoom/wide angle (like the mate 20 pro). I wouldn’t buy the phone just for that reason
