Despite the fact that Huawei was banned from interacting with Google, the company quickly recovered from the loss and showed everyone that it can live even in artificial isolation. The Chinese not only figured out how to bypass the restriction on the installation of Google services, but also developed their own AppGallery catalog, making it the third most popular app store out of it, second only to Google Play and the App Store. However, it would be naive to believe that even such a giant as Huawei will be able to get out of this situation absolutely without losses.
Have you stopped receiving updates on smartphones Huawei? You are not alone
Having started spreading Android 10 quite briskly among branded smartphones, the company had unforeseen difficulties on the flagship P30 line. It is still unknown what exactly this is connected with, but, despite the fact that the update for the flagship was released last fall, it did not reach some users. The lack of an update is observed in many countries of the world, but, apparently, the largest number of devices that did not receive Android 10 are located in Europe.
Why is it not updated Huawei
Apparently Huawei really has problems updating their smartphones
In fact, the system of priority in the distribution of updates, when a fresh version of the operating system is first released in some countries, and then in others, is a fairly common practice. This may be due to both the local features of the firmware, which, for example, include applications popular with local users, and the manufacturer's desire to be able to promptly withdraw the update in case it turns out to be problematic. But, apparently, Huawei has a completely different situation.
Not only did the company release Android 10 for Huawei P30 back in November, which means it had enough time to distribute the update around the world, but it also allows install the new OS version only for selected users. As a result, many started to solve the problem on their own, trying to update to the current build manually. To do this, users download the update image from the Internet and roll it onto a smartphone using a computer. I don't think it's worth saying that, firstly, errors during installation can disable the device, and, secondly, the installation file itself can turn out to be malicious and infect it.
Security Updates Android
In this regard, I cannot help but recall that my Honor View 20, which, although it was updated to Android 10 at the end of last year, has not received a single security update since then. By all the rules, they should be released every month, but for some reason Huawei either forgot about it, or Google simply stopped providing it with source codes that the developers of the Chinese company had to adapt for branded devices. After all, if manufacturers have free access to Android, then security updates are not so simple.
Not that I needed these security updates so badly – I can perfectly protect my smartphone without them. It just looks a little strange, in my opinion, to pay for a device that should receive updates for at least two years from the date of release, and then end up with nothing. After all, support is also included in the price of the device, and by paying Huawei the retail price of the View 20, I fulfilled my part of the deal. Now it would be nice to see some action from her side.
