Huawei already has its own OS ready to go supposedly - which they have created incase of this exact event. The android eco system is fairly easy to get out of in all honesty. I believe that Chinese companies may be forced to create s compelling OS and there is no reason it can’t be better. The next huge implication would be if Qualcomm, Intel, Microsoft etc are ordered to cease operations with China. This would open a path where hi-silicon (huawei’s chipset manufacturer) is the best choice for Chinese phones. And with a custom built OS on custom built chipsets, you get Apple - the fastest most fluid phones on the planet. (I hate apple, but they are the most fluid) This is an incredibly interesting situation, that will probably just end with the USA lifting the ban.
What about 2 years warranty?
This phone is a size of a brick. I hold it in my hands couple days ago at OnePlus event in London. So if you happy with holding 200g+ in your pocket then this is a great choice. For me, too big
They don't have a choice! Google isn't a hardware driven company anyway. How many alternative OS have actually been a success? Nobody invested in android and Google ecosystem is going to move to a none Google supported OS. See I thought that. What happens if Google release a stock android £100-200 device and Chinese companies can't? Forced obsolescence in a market where now people are holding onto phones. I mean the Pixel 3a is already a compelling product at £400. Samsung also finally learning lessons too as One UI is now my second favourite android behind oxygen OS over even stock android. Of course oxygen may soon not be an option.
They will just create there own OS if google did that. Android would lose such a large part of its user base that google would lose massive profits, shooting itself in the foot. Won’t happen.
