Huawei Testing Phone With Own Hongmeng Operating System


In wake of Google and US spat will Huawei really try and go it alone with a phone that doesn’t run Android?

The spat between the US government and Huawei was news that took the Chinese company from tech nerd term to house hold name for all the wrong reasons. You can’t buy Huawei phones in the US, and the connotations of Chinese state surveillance attached to Huawei have damaged its reputation and brand.

You can still buy Huawei phones in the rest of the world and they all run Google’s Android OS. But a report via Reuters suggests that despite things looking up, Huawei is testing and may release a smartphone running its own Hongmeng operating system.

The Reuters article, quoting the Chinese state-run Global Times, says the new phone could go on sale by the end of the year. This is a story that keeps changing course given recent reports that Hongmeng wasn’t even an OS after all, so take this latest indication with a pinch of salt. Indeed, a Huawei spokesperson has said that Hongmeng is not preferable to Android and is part of Huawei’s ‘long term strategy’.

But the fact so many reports are surfacing shows that Huawei is in deep and despite its huge recent growth is very cautious of potentially being blocked access to Android, a move that would destroy its western influence.

It’s unclear if Hongmeng OS would even be a valid alternative for the west either given the reliance on Google services and the Play Store – a Huawei built OS would make much more sense for the Chinese and eastern markets where there are multiple app stores and no reliance on Google at all. So while these reports hint at the Hongmeng experiment being true, don’t count on Huawei giving up on Android just yet.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Review: Hands-on

Thanks to a plus model, the Galaxy Note 10 might be the big Samsung phone you've been waiting a long time for. Find out why in our hands-on review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10?
With so many phones being almost identical to the last model, we're impressed with what Samsung has done with the Galaxy Note 10.
The 10+ model still provides the classic Note experience, but this regular one will finally appeal to those that want the S Pen on a much more manageable phone. This is largely due to tiny bezels and the punch-hole camera.
Based on some hands-on time, we love it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

Samsung had shaken thing up and you can now choose between the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, but which is the best phone for you? We compare them to help you decide.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Or Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
While the Galaxy Note 10 models share many specs and design features it's pretty clear who each one will appeal to.
If you've been longing for a Note in a more manageable size, then the regular Note 10 is exactly what you've been waiting for. However, if you want the biggest screen possible along with some extra specs like more memory, storage, microSD card slot, extra sensors and a bigger battery then the Note 10+ is your best mate.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

For the first time ever, there's a plus model of Samsung's S Pen smartphone. Here's why you'll want the Galaxy Note 10+ if you like having extras.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
As it typical for the Note, this 10th edition is a truly amazing smartphone... but only for those that can afford it and really want this size of device.
There's no doubt Samsung has made the Note 10+ the best edition yet with better cameras, an amazing screen and lots more impressive tech. However, many of the new features are gimmicky and we imagine some users will be distraught at the removal of the headphone jack.
