Method to install Google services on Mate P30 Pro: https://forum.xda-developers.com/mate-30-pro/how-to/method-gms-sideloading-september26-2020-t4168525
Do you get updates on the apps? Does WhatsApp work on the phone? What’s stopping google from pushing an update to play services to block it from working on your huawei? It’s that market dominance of google and Apple that’s forcing end users to have to choose against their preferred brand
Had a chuckle at your settle comment. Yeah most of my work colleagues (who work in IT) are part of the nutter crowd in regards to 5g. Does my head in. I had the Poco f2 pro for a while and the camera is very decent with the macro lens actually being one of the better on phones. It also has the best battery life on a phone I've ever used by far. Its a steal at 300 at the minute. I'm just holding out hope that Google and Huawei are allowed to do business again.
Thanks. I am still on my beloved p20 pro that takes amazing pics which is why I would like to choose between the p30 pro and the p40 pro. I know 5g is still being touted as the one causing COVID 19 by some nutters so a nationwide rollout that works is still sometime away. However, the Xiaomi deals on amazon today make you wonder whether to do the opposite of Oneplus (settle for a xiaomi) but with an average camera?
I followed a guide on twitter before updating my p40 pro. Sideloaded all the Google play stuff - GMS etc. Now I download apps from the play store like any other android phone. The only thing that won't work, probably ever, will be Google pay. Everything else runs normally.
