This is a post with a collection of links documenting the US v Huawei battle that is going on.

Is this battle …

  • a battle over control of 5G networks
  • “If you cant beat them ban them” move by the US?
  • about security concerns?

I have great respect for Apple innovation (up to the iPhone X) but Huawei have been doing a great job of late with it’s 6 month product release cycles. 

I owned a Huawei Mate 9 (as a Android Development Device) alongside an iPhone and I currently own a Huawei Mate 20 Pro as a daily driver after I dropped my iPhone 6 Plus (and could not repair it).

But now my Huawei Mate 20 Pro may be kicked to the kerb by the Tariff wars (even though I live in Australia). This one hurts me a lot as I bought the phone with the promise of 2 years of major OS upgrades like the Huawei Mate 9.
