    Some people here say who cares about google but they watch this video from youtube. And even if you buy this phone without google services its pretty much same as brick so people will find google apk. LOL which means we need google for now at least.

    You can get Huawei mate 30 pro at AliExpress, just download the app from Google play.

    For that camera that phone is still worth it. You can always sideload the apps for google services

    Guys I need your help! I am an old Android user switching back from iPhone. I decided for the Huawei P30 Pro, but after seeing the Mate 30, I really want to buy it!
    But will Play store be available in the Huawei store? Or will I have to go through apk..?

  • Paul Hulub

    I never found huwaui phones uninteresting, because they don't innovate enough, they get one think and forget about 5.

    I regret dumping my Mate 9 for the S10+... The 2 year old Mate 9 easily outlasted this S10+ on battery life,... The camera on the S10 is better but hey, it's newer.. Looks like the Mate 30 will have an even better camera. I'd buy it... I may just dump this S10+ for the Mate 30. Settle the stupid shit with CHina so we can get these phones more easily!

    Personally I don’t care. Especially not that massive ugly ass chin and with the whole ban they have balls of steel launching it at that price.

    If you buy a phone just to take photos why not buy a camera instead? Plus, cameras don't spy on pleople...

    The Huawei phone gave some good features e.g. better cameras but unfortunately I won't buy anything made in China, Plus i'm a Samsung fan having had the Note 2, 4, 5, 8 and now the Note 10 - 5G

    That is a lot of money. I had actually purchased the note 10 and decided to return it and rock my note 9 for another year. I think I'm going to stay one generation behind. This time next year I'll be able to pick up the note 10 plus for around $600 to $700. These phone prices are kind of crazy.

    There is a "official" third party app helps install Google services. So, not a problem.

    A phone is not a baby that should be nursed, the galaxy fold needs to be more rugged and durable

    No Google, no thanks.
    Not going to side load apps on a phone and basically eliminate security. A phone company did shady shit, so eliminate security and load Google apps off the web? People are fuckin idiots. SMH.

  • Raveen Bikha
    Raveen Bikha 24 days ago

    1100€ definitely pro.
    Glad google shit is gone on that device

    Is Huawei supporting all the carriers in Canada? Seems in US, only ATT or Tmobile network can use Huawei. Verizon and Sprint doesn't support at all.

    Huawei is not of interest, not really because of apps, they can be sideloaded, but because security will be compromised. It is bad enough that Huawei have a bad reputation for installing hidden data collection packages in their firmware, but this is just too risky and if you use mobile banking definitely stay clear of this phone. My other reason, they've kept the ugly old notch design and it doesn't have an sPen.

    I wondered why most of the RU-cliprs didn’t mention anything about the mate 30 series.., but it looks like they didn’t attend the event :/ and they barely care about it....
    thats disappointing actually since it may be the best phone in 2019...

    Merkel should have one without Google installed if she had enough of the prying 5Eyes by now. The cameras are also the best from Germany.

    That's backward for NOKIA to have the Fingerprint Unlock at the back. This is 2019 and they still haven't figure out
    the on-screen type? Always need to pick the phone from the table to use it, that s*cks! That's why i still preferred my Galaxy S7.
