For a Huawei mobile phone without Google, the Chinese don't mind. What about foreigners?

Let's listen to an American netizen named turbofrog

Turbofog also said it was a pity.


Why can't foreign users live without Google?

For foreigners, Google is indispensable.

Not to mention in Android smartphones, but in the overall Internet ecological environment, Google has built a huge Google service ecosystem with its rich software and Internet products.

Among them, based on Google search engine (78.23% of global share), Google Chrome browser (67.15% of global share), Google maps, youtube video, Gmail email, Google photos image management service, Google The number of active users such as drive cloud disk has already exceeded 1 billion, supplemented by excellent products. Google can be said to have built the infrastructure of the entire foreign Internet service.


Among them,One editor from Gizmodo said: I took Google out of my life, and then everything went wrong.

It can be said that almost every foreign Android user, I'm afraid, can't do without Google's family bucket.

The so-called Google family bucket is actually Google mobile services (GMS). It is a series of applications and services that Google specially builds for Android operating system. It is mainly divided into two parts:

The second part is many Google Apps based on the above basic services, including Google search, Google photos, youtube, Google maps, Google drive, etc.

It should be noted that,


Obviously, GMS is a mobile service ecosystem that foreign user groups are very familiar with and heavily rely on. It is also what Google hopes to provide in every Android device.

After all, GMS is also at the heart of Google's advertising profits on mobile devices.

When there is no GMS in Huawei mobile phones

Later, we all know that in a few months, Huawei has launched HMS mobile services and app Gallery app stores overseas, which are pre installed in the latest mate30 series and have been sold to overseas markets, and plans to launch $1 billion to attract global developers to participate.


He can't directly download any application from Google in app Gallery, including Google search, Google maps, Gmail, youtube, Google photos, etc.

Even,Social applications, such as Facebook, instagram, WhatsApp and so on, which are indispensable to billions of foreign user groups, do not exist in app gallery.


Of the 15 most popular apps in the UK version of Google play app store, only 4 can be downloaded in Huawei app gallery.

As shown in the figure below:

An editor from Android police conducted such a test using the glory 9xpro mobile phone Chinese Version (excluding GMS naturally). All the apps he tested were his most commonly used apps. The results are as follows:

It looked good, but at last the editor gave up, saying:

So in the end, it's unrealistic (or even unreasonable) for anyone who can access the unlimited Internet to use an Android phone without GMS, whether you're a Google user or not.

And it should be clear that this story is not about a specific mobile phone, but about the importance of GMS to Huawei's future.

In this passage, it reveals the attitude of foreign users towards Huawei mobile phones lacking HMS.


Of course, considering that HMS and app gallery are not breaking away from the Android ecosystem, but just starting from Google's family barrel, the application ecosystem problems Huawei mobile phones face overseas are not completely unsolved, but need more efforts.

In fact,These efforts are not only a matter of technical strength and funding, but also a matter of time.

In fact, just recently, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei's consumer business, made it clear in an interview with foreign media that Facebook's Facebook / twitter / instagram and other apps will log into Huawei's app Gallery app store.
