I ended up buying a Mate 20 Pro. Between the P30 announcement and a strong dollar versus the yen, I was able to get a brand new one for less than $700.

My Honor 9 updated to Android Pie overnight. Which is nice.

However, since it updated I can no longer drag the notification bar down in the lock screen, to turn on/off WiFi etc. There must be a way of enabling this again, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Can anyone help?!

One Plus 7 Pro looks impressive, but not sure how I feel about the pop up front facing camera. Think I prefer the punch hole camera on the Honor phones

New phones will no longer have access to Play Store so they'll need to get their own app store in gear and try and get developers to publish to it. Not 100% sure they'll be able to do security updates.

I think ultimately this will destroy Huwaei in the west.

Any update on Huwaei? I nearly got sucked in by the cute girl in the Three shop who was raving about the Mate 20 Pro but reading the above I guess it's because they got a load of stock to shift before more info comes out

Ditched my Honor 9 for a Pixel 3a and **** me it's brilliant

It doesn't effect existing models. Also, it's expected to get its Google license back soon.

I'd still avoid them for the time being though, not worth the risk as there's lots of phones to choose from. one of the bonuses of android. choice.

Huawei phones not affected by the Google ban

Huawei P30: P30 Pro, P30, P30 Lite

Huawei P Smart*

Huawei Mate 20: Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20, Mate 20 Lite, Mate 20 X

Huawei P20: P20 Pro, P20, P20 Lite

Huawei Mate 10: Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10, Mate 10 Lite

Huawei P10: P10 Plus, P10, P10 Lite

There are only two phone manufacturers who do not make huge payments to retailers to sell their phones.

Huawei is not one of the two.

Lots of people have tried and failed to launch their own version of the App Store or Google Play.

Vodafone tried it, it didn’t go well. Samsung tried it, it also didn’t go well. Huawei tried it before their brand became somewhat toxic, it also didn’t go well (outside of China).

I'm struggling to understand this post. Probably because I'm hungover.

It’s actually more likely because why on earth would you know how phone manufacturers get retailers to stock their phones unless you had knowledge of the business.

Though I cannot imagine the hangover helps.

I'm guessing he means (rather cryptically) Samsung and Apple. Which means the sales staff get commission to sell the rest.

Not the staff. The companies. Though the staff might but that’ll be an internal retailer thing.

Dropped my OnePlus 3t shattering the screen. Approaching 3 years old. I guess it may be time for a new phone. I'm a bit out of the market

Want to buy outright, doesn't need to be the latest model. Always been a bit of a Oneplus fan boy, but could easily be convinced elsewhere.

Help!!!

Very pleased with my Pixel 3a. I shouldn't be- it's plastic and has bezels. But I think it's a wonderful phone.

I would say just replace the screen but having done it myself I wouldn't recommend it. Aftermarket screens are all LCD, not OLED and I've had issues with the screen locking up requiring a reboot of the phone. Also had some components glued in which you can't easily remove so you end up having to buy extra bits.
