Without a third-party app. There are also many other apps that work. There are apps like Instagram and Google Meet that work well but need Gbox (or Gspace). The problem I am facing with Google Meet is that I have to copy a meeting link and then paste it into Google Meet as opposed to just clicking on the link. Gmail works. Maps works but for some reason, Maps is not fluent. I find myself using Petal Maps most of the time. It is a pretty nice app by the way. You should try it out. There are some features it has that Google Maps doesn't seem to have. However, traffic info is about 3-5 minutes late and it may struggle to tell when I move from the main road to the service lane. Also, I haven't figured out how to share location in a way that someone with Google Maps will just click and open. The greatest issue though is the two-step authentication for signing in to Google devices. The prompt simply doesn't recognize the Huawei device or Gbox and it doesn't pop up there. Either you "try a different method" (in my case text message but this is not always available) or you use a second GAPPS phone. On the positive side, EMUI 12, which is rumoured to be a lite version of Harmony OS 2 is great. There are numerous apps that are already available in the Huawei App gallery. If more apps become directly available, the experience will be smoother. The biggest realization though is how dependent MY LIFE is on Google. Literally, if for some reason Google disables my account or suffers an outage I am quite stuck! Many apps I use from day to day including banking apps need Google Mobile Services. Many sites and online tools I use are linked to my Google account. My videos and photos - memories are mostly on Google. This has been the biggest learning point. It is a bit rough as you start but it has opened my eyes to the need to build redundancies for myself. I hope this helps.

If u need move phone u need either very long PC antenna wires.. Motherboard manufacturers supply short antennas.. It can be easily bought on ebay 5 or 10m antennas.. The WiFi 5 is still short but acceptable and wifi 4 (2.4mhz) is best still online multilayer games runs fine.. It just needs that 10m antennas and problem solved
And imagine they preparing wifi 7.. So really don't know what range it will have... 🤷♂️

It will also require alot more power/energy not to mention you will have to buy alot of routers/mesh system just to cover your house.
bulbulito.bayagbag, 11 Sep 2023Unless you are in China.even there.. I mean iphone has it and nobody can use it for free calling or texting.. i is just for lost emergency which happens once in whole life or only in USA movies where all the time they don't have signal..

I have waited helplessly for this Harmony OS to come if EMUI 13 can't fit in on my P40 Pro but nothing comes of it. So appalling and Huawei should do something about it for the international consumers.
Hi guys, I wish to know that is all the apps of google, facebook etc. Are runing on Huawei mobile phones or rrstricted? Because I like to buy this set in future , Thanks
Victor N, 10 Sep 2023I don't know why I get the sense that I should believe you. The points you make don'... moreTake a moment to note that I consciously bought a Huwaei Phone last year. Also, please take note that I am talking from experience. I cannot fault Huawei for global politics. But I certainly fault them for not allowing me access to Harmony OS - I believe people in China with the same Huawei phone that I do have access to Harmony OS 3.0, maybe even 4.0. I am stuck on EMUI 12. That's not a fault of the West, that is a Huawei decision. I feel aggrieved. Secondly, the person who spoke about opposition figures in some African countries - the character of that comment is not the usual run-of-the-mill online opinions. Finally, agreeing with him does not mean I am blind to what other countries are likely doing.
I hope it will be available in the EU.
Withnail, 09 Sep 2023i will buy a Mate 60 Pro here in the UK from China, it's easyOf course. Giztop, Tradingshenzen, AliExpress can deliver these phones when available.
