Why? Rest of world including EU is going with Huawei as they use evidence and logic based decision making


US companies are going to be screwed if this sticks as china has US companies by the balls. All the automakers, manufacturing like Caterpillar, Starbucks, Boeing, Apple etc all rely on china and their farmers are going to hurt even more now

This is actually no good for either company. Short term problems for Huawei, but possibly a long term problem for google. But who knows.

So far no facts have been presented about any backdoors. Also don’t forget the whole Huawei/NSA thing a few years ago.

I guess google really needs to increase its market share for pixel. Already have the p30 pro, was going to get the mate 30, but I guess will see how this plays out.

That's o.k. We'll be (if not already are) road kill on the information highway.

But they aren't Chinese phones. Made in China doesn't mean they are Chinese phones. English Canadian isn't English from England..

because of the 'Made In China 2025'

lot of tech in China is picking up and more advanced than US. US doesn't want to see that happen because US has been the leader in the past 20 yrs.

moral of story...there is no moral in this world....everyone is wearing a mask..

example, your friend knows u r smarter than him and one day he setup a trap on you because he doesn't want you to be smarter than him....besides setting up the trap on you..he will blame you on everything in negative and he wont lend or teach you anything because he is afraid you will be smarter than him....your friend is US and you are China...

the rest of spyware or work for communist or privacy r bullshit and excuses..
