Hi @larissa3 Thank you for posting.
Rest assured, that the security of our networks is very important to us, and we collaborate with government and industry partners to ensure that our networks are safe and secure. We have a rigorous process in place when we look at any potential supplier. In addition, every device we sell meets all Government of Canada standards and are certified for use in Canada.
With that being said returns and exchange conditions are defined by our regular Buyer’s Remorse Policy, which you can find here.
Hope this put your concerns at rest.
Security updates are not OS upgrade. So no new Android update like android 10 for us.
When I paid for an android phone I want the future update for my phone.
Now it's impossible.
P20 pro was supposed to have emui 9.1... no news.
P20 pro was supposed to have Android 10.
Now it's impossible and the value for my phone has dropped...
I'm sorry but Huawei can't support Android Q with the new rules.
They don't have access anymore to Android license.
Even security updates will take more time , because they're gonna use Asop version of Android.
What is fido position about that?
What can we do now?
There's a simple solution to this problem. Huawei can let us freely unlock the bootloader again, and we can choose what OS we'd prefer to use. Android is open source btw so this nonsense that you can't get Android Q is uninformed. The only real issue is the lack of access to the play store but I'm positive you'll be able to sideload any apk you want.
The real issue here is the value of my phone.
A phone where I need to unlock a bootloader to access playstore isn't user-friendly.
Same problem here. If I use Android and not emui the hardware will not be used well by the software.
For exemple if you use Google APK for your camera it's not good as Huawei software.
But I need playstore.
For the first time, I don't see a solution except if Huawei have access again to google license
Time for a big slash in P30 Pro prices. I'd buy one in a minute if they lowered the price dramatically. Basically we're rolling the dice with no clear idea what happens Aug 19th when the ban takes affect.
Interesting that google is now banning its software for Huawei devices. This is very reminiscent of the ban slapped on ZTE basically killing their footprint in North America. Afaik this affects upcoming devices and of course security updates to current devices. Honestly this will be a blip on the radar for Huawei as Google doesn’t exist for the Chinese market where Huawei dominates. It’s cute how they fail to mention that Android is open source so Huawei can easily just wait till it’s freely available and make their new EMUI skin on top of that.
