    ok, Huawei seems has already a backup plan: it's been years they are developing their own OS, and it has already used in some models released in China, and seems they will have some agreement with AMR, which is partially owned by taiwanese....

    Hard time for huawei indeed but seems they are well prepared.

    What you say, TC are u with Trump's war cauz China's enemy is friend of Japan?

    I don't get why people are mad, the us government is spying on just about everyone why can't china do it too? (if it is true the spying.)

    Just got a Huawei phone yesterday.

    Awkwaaaaaaard.

    But really, this feels like it's going a bit too far. Everyone's trying to screw this company over when they're one of the biggest phone makers.

    NOT ONLY PHONES MAKER: Huawei is responsible for earlier development of 5G connections, manufacture and provider: many asian countries like pakistan and india already using their equipments for mobile communication.

    Trump aimed to eliminate NA companies' most dangerous competitor, for them to gain monopoly to the rest of world.

    "Don't want to be spied on, so I'm totally OK with even more people spying on me." No wait, that's not how it works.

    Come to speak of it, I recently set up a Samsung phone for a family member.

    They now have a button on their handsets, that prompts you to (update the Bigsby App and) register a Samsung account and to do the same to deactivate it. And by deactivate I mean select the "activate by double press" option, because there is no deactivate. And if you deactivate it and then delete the Samsung account from your smartphone (which they only allow you to do if you also register and enter an account password - even though you are clearly accessing your phone), the button jumps back to activate on single press.

    Also if you single sign in via your Google Acount, and decline access to personal information for ad purposes, Samsung pops you up with an additional screen - to "please verify" the two privacy options you just checked. The closest button to your thumb is a "allow all" - which is labled differently, and by default no items are checked - but by design it makes it seem like you'd have to check something on that screen.

    If we are now talking about banning scumbag data thiefs, ban Samsung first. They literally have a physical button on your device do make you register a Samsung account, to get your data. And you have to have a Samsung account registered and activated on your phone - to "deactivate" the button (to prevent missclicks for stupid people).

    Never cursed out a phone so much in my life.

    Well we know the US already spies on us everywhere, I'd rather it remains only the US spying on me, and not add in China to the mix.

    Except if another state basically dismantles a company of course.

    Just saying. ;)

    (Not even campaigning. ;)

    Ok, with this post I probably crossed the line. ;))

    I mean, pick your poison I guess. We know we're being spied on, so choose who you trust. I haven't had much trust in China my whole life while my feelings for South Korea have always been neutral at worst, nothing happening currently is about to change that now.
