    You are probably right, but I think there is also the dislike by US companies (and therefore the US government) towards a planned economy like China. We have been told that capitalism, the invisible hand, etc. etc. know best and the less government intervention there is, the better, and therefore we have to privatise everything. And here comes a centrally planned economy that does better than anybody else. That can't be right, right? The bastards must use some unfair tricks, right?

    You were freaking out that you wouldn‘t be able to use gmail and youtube and other google apps - and you are in hong kong - and you complained about the unfairness of it. Yet China restricted and banned these google apps along with facebook, instagram etc. The effect of that action to unduly surpress competition.

    IP Theft is rampant in China as property rights are not as strongly enshrined. From mom and pop places selling pirated DVDs to look at Oppo Coloros and Xiaomi apple like branding and design to state sponsored espionage.

    Anyways looking at your conclusion from the first post on this topic and also looking back at your posting history

    selling your house in Hong Kong by lottery

    and investing in esoteric financial instruments

    I hope you make the right decisions for your daily life - Huawei phone and your retirement Penang

    So long and thanks for all the fish

    Huawei is banned from using SD card branding on future devices
    The change in status means that Huawei will no longer be able to offer products using official SDA branding and will exclude the company from being involved in setting standards going forward
    It's not clear how the move will affect the company's future phones and devices, but Huawei has been moving away from the format in favor of its own "Nano Memory Cards."

    The UK government report on how Huawei released software for its network equipment states that the software images are compiled per client. There is no way to actually verify their stuff can be trusted when every customer has a different version of an image even if the hardware is the same.

    How can you trust it when it has this policy.... how do you know your Huawei equipment doesn't arrive with a backdoor? The process of each company having to verify that that particular piece of network equipment is not backdoored is exponentially complex and can not be feasibly verified.

    Certainly - if anyone wants to sell at substantially reduced price like the singaporeans did.

    I've bought a Huawei Nova 3 with 6 / 128gb storage at $1588 from Smartone online shop - great deal!
