    Am I missing something? Or is this forum full of Huawei shills? Why does any criticism, even backed up facts get instantly downvoted?

      I think its mostly because the criticism is backed up by misleading facts? They're right about the android certification being pulled, but it has no effect on previously released phones. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

        It does, certification for Android is at the OEM level (Samsung, Huawei etc) device level certification applies for 'lite' versions of Android like Android One for developing marketing. The OEMs that don't have android certification can still use android but they get updates through a free program called AOSP, and since that's open source Google isn't responsible about security and features for AOSP. Which is what Huawei will have to be dropped to in mid August after the 90 day extension lapses. Please fact check me if you think I'm incorrect.

          Some posts already pointed out that the google ban won't apply to the existing phone. This is the statement from google:
          “For users of our services, Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices.”"

          A another crude explanation
          Aosp (android open source project).
          The operating system is open source and free but googles app (Google Play-certified) are proprietary and requires a licence.

          The only way to get around this for future phones would be if they allow the bootloader to be unlocked so you can flash googles apps from https://opengapps.org/ without their consent.

          This is still a grey area as cheap android tv devices from china can just bake the google apps into the os to avoid getting a licence.
