US officials pressure T-Mobile, Sprint parent companies to drop Huawei, too

US officials pressure T-Mobile, Sprint parent companies to drop Huawei, too

It would appear that the United States Government is putting pressure on Huawei not only inside the USA, but abroad as well. On concerns that the brand Huawei is a sort of spy for the Chinese state, the US Government effectively carpet-bombed Huawei out of North America - getting all major carriers to drop all Huawei brand products in the process. Now it would seem that the US government wants not only T-Mobile and Sprint to continue to avoid Huawei, it wants their parent companies to drop Huawei hardware as well.

Huawei Mate 20 trio topped AnTuTu November 2018 chart

Huawei Mate 20 trio topped AnTuTu November 2018 chart

Ever since the initial scandal a few years back, a scandal that has apparently persisted to today, mobile performance benchmarks have lost their luster and flair. People still use them, of course, mostly as a reference and starting point. And companies just love citing those, especially to boost their prestige and, eventually, sales. One company that might revel in those numbers is Huawei, whose three, yes all three, Huawei Mate 20 phones grabbed AnTuTu’s November ranking. But things might not be what they seem.

Huawei Nova 4 just leaked in a big way

This device was teased on the 3rd of December by Huawei's official Weibo account - now it's time to see some in-hand leaks. What's surprising isn't the fact that this device leaked. What's surprising is that it didn't leak several weeks in advance.

Samsung, Huawei battle for holes starts next week

Samsung, Huawei battle for holes starts next week

Forget the notch. Actually, don’t. The notch is probably here to stay, just taking on different forms. After the wide and sometimes deep cutout came the minimalist waterdrop/teardrop (which is actually a spin on the Essential PH-1’s pioneering notch). Unsurprisingly, it’s not going to stop there and in the next two weeks, we’ll see two giant smartphone makers take the notch to the extreme minimalist form, with the Galaxy A8s and the Huawei nova 4 bringing the dreaded hole to the market.

Smartphone market still growing, Samsung not so much, Gartner says

Smartphone market still growing, Samsung not so much, Gartner says

There have been whispers of the smartphone market’s stagnation and decline given the oversaturation of choices and the plateau of mobile technology. That may be partially true but if Gartner’s numbers are to be believed, the smartphone market has actually grown in the third quarter of 2018 compared to last year. That, however, is mostly thanks to Chinese OEMs who continue their barrage, despite and in spite of certain political tactics.

Huawei ‘leak’ shows 2019’s big gambit

It's time again to see what's going on next year - in a leak from Huawei that essentially tells the future. It was by "mistake" that a popular singer in China by the name of Jackson Yee revealed the next major Huawei smartphone. In doing so, he revealed the industry's next big thing. That's one big hole in the device's display instead of a notch.

Samsung Infinity-O camera hole is big, Huawei wants to be first

Samsung Infinity-O camera hole is big, Huawei wants to be first

Unless you go for sliders/elevators or ignore them completely, it seems that cutouts are an inescapable fact of smartphone life. At least for the time being. All that manufacturers can do is try to come up with ways to minimize or hide that notch. It seemed for a while that the “waterdrop” notch was going to be the compromise but Samsung obviously has other, stranger ideas. However, in typical Huawei fashion, the Chinese might try to beat Samsung to the punch.

US versus Huawei part two: getting allies in line

US versus Huawei part two: getting allies in line

It may have not been able to deal Huawei the same almost fatal blow it gave ZTE but the US government is ramping up its efforts to make sure the Chinese company will have no place to run soon. It has already made it illegal to use Huawei and ZTE equipment in government and now reports are claiming that the US is doing what it can to urge other countries, particularly its allies, to also shun Huawei-made networking equipment in light of the upcoming 5G transition.

Huawei Mate 20 durability test ends in a two-faced stalemate

Huawei Mate 20 durability test ends in a two-faced stalemate

For a time, it almost seemed like smartphones were getting more uniform in their designs and structures, making JerryRigEverything’s teardowns boring and uneventful. In a good way, of course. And then came new design trends that spiced things up a bit, but didn’t always end up well in YouTuber Zack Nelson’s hands. With the Mate 20 Pro, Huawei has changed its formula and its design to some extent. And, as you might have guessed by now, the durability tests ends on a sort of cliffhanger.
