Huawei might be blocked from Australian 5G network

Huawei might be blocked from Australian 5G network

While ZTE is fighting for survival in the US, fellow Chinese company Huawei is also struggling in Australia. While the consequences of losing this battle is less likely to make Huawei fold, it is still a slippery slope that could see Huawei’s foothold in more markets around the world. Just like in the US, Australia’s rivaling political parties seem to be in agreement that allowing Huawei to participate in building the country’s 5G infrastructure would be tantamount to giving China backdoor access to it.

Huawei Cloud lets you run Windows 10 on a Huawei phone

Huawei Cloud lets you run Windows 10 on a Huawei phone

Being able to fit your PC experience in a device that you can fit in your pocket has been one of the more eccentric dreams of the tech industry. But short of futuristic devices and 3D holograms, we are pretty much left to settle with compromises. A few companies have already tried their hand at that compromise but there’s plenty of room for one more. At CES Asia 2018, Huawei showed off what is actually its second “your phone as your PC” idea, this time by running a full Windows 10 system through, not on, a Huawei phone.

Huawei MediaPad M5 available if you still believe in tablets

Huawei MediaPad M5 available if you still believe in tablets

Google has practically given up on tablets, or rather on Android tablets, but others certainly haven’t. There’s a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 still coming but if that wait is too long, there’s still Huawei’s MediaPad M5 series. Now the tablets are available in the US and if you’re looking for more up-to-date specs on an Android slate, then this is the tablet to beat. For a price, of course.

Smartphone sales are growing again, and Huawei is on the rise

Smartphone sales are growing again, and Huawei is on the rise

Back in February, Gartner revealed that, for the first time in more than a decade, smartphone sales have declined. Just a wee bit, mind, but still declined. That may cause some worry for market analysts and manufacturers if that trend continued for months. Fortunately for everyone involved and invested in the market, that's not the case. At the end of the first quarter of 2018, smartphone sales are back up. But more importantly, one of the winners in that quarter is Huawei, one of the most embattled OEM as well.

Galaxy Note 9: If this meeting went well, result may be hero team-up feature

Galaxy Note 9: If this meeting went well, result may be hero team-up feature

The most game-changing feature of the Galaxy Note 9 might not be anything we've seen before. Not a top-notch camera, nor an in-display or under-display fingerprint reader. Nay - the biggest feature in the Galaxy Note 9 might be a doorway to collaboration between Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei. This possibility comes after word that Samsung's Li Jie met with executives from the other two major smartphone brands in China.

Huawei, ZTE banned from military base retail stores over security risks [UPDATE]

Chinese phone makers ZTE and Huawei remain under scrutiny by the US government, which has banned them from retail stores on military bases. The order comes from the Pentagon and applies to US military bases around the world, a decision made over alleged security issues the devices may present. Both companies have previously, and repeatedly, dismissed the government's concerns.

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

What with all the attention the Huawei P20 Pro has captured lately, you'd think the company would be having a good year. Then again, high-profile criticism by the US government hasn't exactly done wonders for the Chinese phone-maker's sales, nor its scuppered carrier deals. If there's one thing the P20 Pro demonstrates, however, it's that while Huawei may lack trust from some quarters, it certainly isn't short on imagination.

Huawei doesn’t need to move away from Android to survive

Huawei doesn’t need to move away from Android to survive

Huawei may have seen the writing on the wall long before trouble started brewing. Either that or it already knew what it was in for, perhaps because of some actions that it knows will upset some powers. Either way, the Chinese OEM, which is now the world's third largest smartphone company and the second largest Android device maker, was recently reported to have been developing its own OS since 2012 as a fallback should its Android venture fail. It didn't but, thanks to recent political events, it might have to use that Plan B. However, Huawei shouldn't have to switch away from Android and, in fact, it might actually be suicide for it to push through with its own "Huawei OS".

Huawei P20 Pro durability test reveals an unfortunate flaw

Huawei P20 Pro durability test reveals an unfortunate flaw

Against all odds, Huawei has made a big grab for the smartphone market by appealing to photography lovers with its Huawei P20 Pro and its three cameras. Its mix of premium specs, high-end camera components, and AI-assisted features may make some in the US wish the smartphone was indeed available in the market. But while the Huawei P20 Pro may indeed rank as one of the top smartphones of 2018, one question remains unanswered: how long will it last under the wear and tear of everyday use? JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson tries to find out.
