With Lobbyists in our politicians back pocket I wouldn't be supprised if Samsung and Apple had something to do with this awful decision just to protect their sales. It's a shame because Huawei has great and innovative products. Glad I could pick up my Mate 10 on Ebay but the majority of buyers go through carriers that have limited choices.
What I personally think ? Apart from realising that the Cold War isn't over, I was thinking that we should all do our best to get along with everyone on this planet, regardless of belief, age, sex, race, nationality and other such particularities.
Sorry but the Racism comment is the stupidest thing I have heard you say. What phones aren't made in China? I will give you credit you tied the "republicans" into the racism quite quickly. I had no idea you are a moonbat
I'm disappointed that you brought racism into the reasoning of why the US government might get involved between Huawei and ATT. It just boggles my mind. If that is they case then why does Alacatel sell their phones via T-Mobile and ZTE via ATT? Or maybe more likely these committee people have info that we don't that says we should be worried about Huawei specifically. And wasn't it not long ago another Chinese phone manufacturer was caught skimming data off of users phones?
the issue and fear of being too dependent on lte is the same as its been since wireless g wifi. notice how Ethernet threwput is 54mbps and it still outperforms wireless ac 5ghz 750mbps. its the same reason why digital eather works or does not same respect for packet data if part is lost all is lost so what do thay do thay add binary redundancy the more you add the exponentially slower wireless connection speed becomes. that is why even one signal bar lost on youre $200ish smartphone results in not being able to stream in 1080p60hz.
Why would you even say racism ?the Chinese spy in their own people so there is some concern when you get a Huawei iPhone ...why jump to racism everybody is so crazy these days can’t do anything without being called a racist get over it...
The political angle in the Huawei case is interesting. I have my own theory but one question that no one is asking, has Huawei fallen out of favor with the Chinese government? Remember, in China, "private companies" are not really private and the government has their hands in them one way or another. If Huawei is the biggest telecom company in China and if they have connections to the Chinese government, wouldn't the Chinese government make some phone calls to the U.S. government to set things right? Wouldn't Pres Xi be on the phone with Pres Trump? One thing to watch out for is whether Xiaomi will make it to the U.S. If they do, not only does that suggest maybe Xiaomi is the Chinese government's new favorite but also Xiaomi has done something that the U.S. government likes and security and privacy issues are ignored. What might that be? Well...how about the fact that Xiaomi will be purchasing Qualcomm chipsets in the future phones? (Huawei uses their own in-house chipset btw) Remember in that deals signing PR stunt when Trump was in Beijing a few months back? Xiaomi signed a deal with Qualcomm to buy their chipsets. The Chinese government was willing to put Xiaomi on stage for this little PR stunt but not other Chinese phone manufacturers.
The problem with Bluetooth headphone is not the bluetooth technology itself it's the Headphone. Try the bluetooth portable dac to connect to your hi fi headphone, with the same amp you will be hard pressed to notice the difference in sound quality. so when qualcomm increase the battery life by 3x it will be a game changer.
The biggest security threat is in the White House in the house and senate. Russia today rt is allowed to operate in America . Americans its not jealousy why people might hate u it dumb shit like this. Selective outrage
Samsung is only alive in India just because a couple of years ago, they released those J series just at the edge 😂
Xiaomi, o+ and others were almost completely settled
But if they'll keep on releasing that same device every time, it's not gonna work. Seriously, 1.5 GBs of RAM? What work would it do? Specially when you have your custom UX skin into it!
(Better is anyone don't think to say "it's still enough for our parents" coz it's not. Facebook and WhatsApp applications will fix your parents
We are looking out for security in our great nation. Just playing that racist card is a weak excuse. It's funny how we throw that out so quickly without actually fact. So let's stick to tech talk thanks.
Why does everyone assume the US Government is racist? Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. We don't have all the information on Huawei that the government does. They could indeed pose a security threat. I bet no one even does research to check if the concern is valid.
Smart to not trust Huawei, not racism you bald dork, if they have intelligence that they embed spyware and we are sending back private info to freaking China commie gov't, then fuck Huawei, there are plenty of good phone options
brown bobby also note than almost everything "made in America" must not really be made in America because most line workers are not American going by your point about "well apple is made in Taiwan but because the people working there may be from other countries, that makes me right because not every single person is from China specifically."keep grasping on the few little things things that you think make you right" " Still stands that Most phones are still manufactured in china ( *some components may be pre-assembled elsewhere like every other product in the world).
brown bobby sorry dude. It doesn't change the fact that most phones are still manufactured in china. I am glad you.watched a random YouTube video explaining that some are made elsewhere as if that changes that facts that "most" phones are still manufactured in "china"
you do some research, commie friend....what made it so easy for Samsung LG and Sony to move elsewhere is the fact that components inside phones are from other countries....Samsung LG Sony taking up more than 30% of market share isn't minoriry to free country's standard, commie.....with Apple being made by Taiwanese company..half of them are non-chinese that can move elsewhere anytime...China keeps making cheap phones with government support....Commie
brown bobby that's funny, the majority of LG production is in South Korea and sure, Samsung is starting to manufacture a lot in Vietnam but the majority of" all" manufacturing of phones, not just 1-2 cherry picked brands, are manufactured in China. Sorry homie quit lying and do your research.#fakenews.
The answer is very simple. HUAWEI uses its own Kirin chip instead of Snapdragon, Qualcomm can not make money from HUAWEI, so they assign some "puppets" to block HUAWEI.
BTW Samsung also has its own Exynos processor, but they sell snapdragon versions in the US market
The funny thing is that phones like Samsung and apple all have spyware in them. Google is constantly siphoning information with every video you watch purchase you make and website you visit. I think we can all agree privacy on the internet doesn't really exist. So yes in the grand scheme of things this isn't about protection its about money. Huawei offers high quality phones at better prices and their presence in the US would hurt Samsung and apple. Its as simple as that😎
I hate huaweii. They updated my phone to oreo and it started glitching and battery started to train and turn off. Told me to reset my phone and send it in for testing and said they couldnt do anything to it. Fuck that company!
When I tune in for tech news, I expect only tech news. This guy crying racism is about as SJW activist as it gets. Needs to not comment on politics. I've got other great sources for tech news that do not insert utter garbage into reporting, so I'll just unsubscribe here.
Racism? There have been multiple instances of industrial espionage and backdoored chips/software for decades. They have about zero copyright law and knockoff everything. Top it off with lowering their tax rates to zero just after we drop ours to encourage businesses to come back. They have always been a difficult ally at the best of times. That's being kind. Russia is the scapegoat while China is the biggest threat. The SJW retardism is strong and could have stayed in the closet with your communist manifesto, queefy britches.
"Chinese" is not a race, so racism has nothing to do with the topic of Huawei and other Chinese companies performing corporate and national espionage. The People's Republic of China is governed by the Communist Party of China.

My first college writing class taught me that populour sources are not confidential and qualified for siting. It is just like if I tell you that you should stop using toilet paper because CNN reports an article that tells you that it is detrimental to your butt......
Considering how often Chinese phone companies have been found to be blatantly taking data from their phones I understand the concerns. Don't get me wrong, still happens here but over there it seems there are no restrictions.
Asterisk Because there aren't. They basically have zero copyright law and knockoff everything you can think of. The "racism" crack in the video was stupid as fuck. I'm wondering how Samsung and HTC suddenly lost their ethnicity and went hit. China is anything but an ally and never has been. We dropped our tax rate to encourage businesses to come back, they in turn drop theres to zero to keep companies along with making them sign agreements. That's all a person needs to know about their intent.
taka shiru it is usable tho it's does what a phone does of course it as the friend above said these phones are for people who ethier don't care about specs or can't afford a 1,000 $ phone tho the second point is debatable
taka shiru To you an me but to say someone like your grandmother your grandfather say a 12 or 13 year old girl or boy actually getting their first phone to a lot of people it won’t matter to them and that’s the point I’m just trying to make that’s it to the average consumer with the average user they do not really care about internals specs they just want to phone
brown bobby again... If this wasn't about business and instead was really about national security then they wouldn't allow them in the US period. BUT they do. They just make it slightly harder to get them
say that to communist party who controls just about anything....China is a country ruled by a single party or dictators who can go so far as to demanding data from any chinese companies....why would anybody risk their people's data being sent to communist party? China is different from the west or any other free countries....wake up people
Pablo how is it making it safer? It's not like they banned them in the US. You can still import them. If they wanted to make it "safe" because they're a "threat" then you would ban them from being imported
Racism? Oh well it would have to be racism, not protectionism, trying to keep your market for yourself mixed with genuine and real security concerns. Now the dictionary definition of racism is : prejudice, discrimination against another race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior. Mmm so where’s the racism? Easy woke SJW word to throw around though, especially in tech circles.
9Lives Ah the good old answer to everything these days Racism ‼️ Next thing you know they can’t release a phone unless a trans black disabled muslim has had at least 50% more design input than any white straight males 😆
R T I bought the Mate 10 with a little trepidation over security, I have given it multiple scans though how much use that is and turned off any data transmission to Huawei. I don’t do online banking on my phone and use a vpn. I’m so sick of racism and liberals trying to divide society with this nonsense. When will the tech industry grow up and behave rationally, god I hope James Damore takes google for a massive amount and drags their disgusting views through the mud.
9Lives Everything is racist. It's the current year/s. Nevermind the history of IP theft that China has built entire economic zones on. Or the history of Lenovo, ZTE, etc. What is even more disturbing is that Huawei is thought to be doing far more insidious stuff. The kind of relationship that Kaspersky is thought to have with the FSB. Or at very least, operating in a country that requires you to do some things in the name of patriotism. Like funneling all your customers incoming data through government nets.
ninjakid164 I had two of their phones, a midrange nova 2 and now a mate 9. There isn't much negative I can say about either considering their prices. Honestly they are worth more than what you can get them for. Anyway, what is not trash for you?
R T Nothing would surprise me mate , having said that , would we expect our respective countries intelligence agencies to be any less industrious ???
As im sure you like myself would be well aware of just how clever these guys are at snooping on any communication device if they really want to .
I mean really , if anyone wants to be secure from electronic surveillance of big brother or other interested parties , best to take on the caveman lifestyle out in the boonies right now 🏕 with no modern electronic gizmos , even then the buggers are probably watching you stalking your dinner 🏹🦃🍗 near your new cave home via sattelite .
Luka M Buddy, that article was over a year ago, even AA did a video about it
Chinese phones having spyware is widely recognized, especially in Asia. Chinese consumers have been reporting it for years prior. It's not a mere allegation.
With that said, I don't have a problem with Huawei phones, I bought one for my brother and he's enjoying it. My only advice is, don't buy Chinese phones if privacy is a major concern. Peace man.
Ikhwan Arif interesting article. Thanks. But I think it is Propaganda becuase of two reasons. 1. It's an American written article. 2. It was posted on the day Huawei announced a coming partnership with AT&T
FutureCars some of us live in hope that some manufacturers will hang on to the head phone jack regardless .
the dedicated headphone jack is a convenience feature , there are going to be times when you need to charge your phone and bt ear phones at the same time .
and at this time the headphone jack still does have the best qaulity sound , and ear buds suck i might add !
why should we compromise because some phone makers want to save a buck by deleting the 3.5 mm headphone jack .
