Huawei Mate 30 – Will You Buy a Smartphone without Google Apps?

The question is will your rock a smartphone without any Google applications?

Huawei has launched its latest smartphones Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, and both lack YouTube, Google Maps and Gmail among other software.

They also do not feature Google’s Play Store, which is the normal way users outside China install third-party software on to Android 10 phones.

To address this, Huawei has pre-loaded new alternative apps of its own. Applications like Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp would all be available via Huawei’s own store, called the Huawei App Gallery.

But there is a way you can side-load Google applications on the latest Huawei Mate 30 phones but may not run as smoothly as the default google apps.

However, Huawei claims that because of the US ban… the phone cannot pre-install the GMS [Google Mobile Services] core. But instead forced them to use the HMS [Huawei Mobile Services] core.

Huawei’s own app store has only a fraction of the apps that Google’s Play store contains — 45,000 compared to 2.7 million –although Huawei said it has over one million developers. As with most new flagship phones, the emphasis is on the camera: the top-end Mate 30 Pro model packs four.

 The question will be whether the hardware can make up for the absence of those Google apps that many smartphone users rely on.

A twitter user tried to install Google Play store on the newly released Huawei Mate 30 Pro but it failed to install.

The question still remains, will you rock a smartphone without google applications installed?

  1. Yes I will use it, I hate how US treat others. Meanwhile, Get website for your business and other uses just whatsapp +2348165980131

  2. yes! yes!! and yes!!!
    I am tired of google instant apps updating without my permission, same as play services. I don’t need chrome, google, and others apps. they so consume internal storage you barely know what they do. I can download any app I want from the net, so I don’t need it. once again, yes! to using a phone without google apps pre-installed.

  3. Only if the phone is very cheap. Root it if possible, then install Googleplay using lucky patcher. I can’t spend much money buying android phone without Googleplay. Donc ça dépend du prix

  4. Google Play Services, can’t believe peeps are still on that drug, well if you can’t even have the presence of mind to try new things, then your bondage is more severe than you like to admit. Google doesn’t have all the answers, and you won’t believe the better alternatives out there! A decent device can’t be crippled because of common GMS, Huawei is on the right track if you ask me.
