Wow luckily i watched a review before i considered buying this device. Theres a big disclaimer with this phone: has no widevine cdm support which means cannot run any video streaming apps like netflix. So u CANNOT use netflix and other streaming services. This is a big turn off for most people, along with the lack of google services which everyone knows by now. Great specs but lacking major features, quite upsetting.

All of them do bud.


The 9X Pro does not.

I have one next to me and frankly if it wasn't for that I'd tell everyone to buy it yesterday. Instead I'm doing my best to mitigate things and create a list of ways to sort most apps out.

However this will be one for power users who understand that this isn't a plug and play phone if you want certain services working off the bat!
I would easily get around most apps not having Google play but for the everyday user this is a massive issue. This is a lot of phone for the money but Instagram and Facebook are not available on this device. You'll have to install them from an apk website or use web versions.

As easy as that would be I do believe YouTube app is unavailable at all on these devices and YouTube definitely has to be used on the web browsers.

As I've said phone wise it's a great phone. But please don't buy this unless you're well aware that it's not dead simple.

Xiaomi phones may be a good place to look for similar specs and prices.

Does this have Google services switchy?
Just got a tenner off.

Now to decide if I should upgrade my 8x (courtesy of yourself, £127 Argos last year).

Thanks for the confirmation Switchy.

Hmm... They are similar phones

Stick then, unless you go for the honor 20/pro, they are real upgrades, but also a lot more £
Are you certain about the Google play store? I've read a few reviews that say it has Google mobile services but not the android app store, just a few apps on the Huawei store. I have the 8x that MrSwitch recommended last year and it's brilliant. Huawei do make some great phones with amazing battery life. I'd bite on this one but the potential lack of a full Google play store holds me back. Great deal though

Does the 9x Pro not have Kirin 710?

Kirin 810.

The 9X Non Pro UK edition has the 710, this is the full fat edition, but comes with HMS, not GMS.

Easily done!

Personally, I can get around it and the device itself is *exceptional* for £200, but it is a totally different experience from a "normal" Android phone because of the change to HMS.

This one or Note 8 Pro?
No Google Pay or No Google play? See your description.
Is it even possible to win £100, £200 or even £300 from the lottery thing. Got £15 off so i guess thats okay as i cant see anyone being lucky enough to get the higher discounts
A quick search seems to suggest that Google Play and services can be easily installed on the 9x Pro, any opinions on this?!
Also does spinning the lottery again overwrites ur current discount?

No, all coupons are added to your account.

I wonder if any of HUKers will get any of those larger coupons.
I got the £15 too ... I wonder if I could use it for the Magic Watch as it is already discounted.

I suppose if you add something cheap to get it over 150, then that may work

Not tested yet (Will add to my list) and yes after a workaround.

NFC is present and working but Google Pay is a complete no for now.

Android Auto and Google Maps get updated a lot so there needs to be 100% perfect fix not messing about to get them working every time there's an update. Android Auto is an especially unreliable app from Google who just can't seem to iron out the bugs.

Google Pay is never going to work I reckon.

I've already updated maps once with no issues but obviously need more testing time!

Getting everything ready ranges from not actually too bad to a nightmare of epic proportions depending on your luck. Once it's setup, a few little btweaks means you should be then set. But I've only had the thing for less than a week so lots more testing required.
I would easily get around most apps not having Google play but for the everyday user this is a massive issue. This is a lot of phone for the money but Instagram and Facebook are not available on this device. You'll have to install them from an apk website or use web versions.
