    Huawei may be the only company that not only treated unfairly by the Chinese government, but also unfairly treated by the US government. The most funny thing is that, use opposite reason, one is because it is not a Chinese state-owned enterprise (a private enterprise in the market), and the other is because it is a Chinese enterprise ( state-owned enterprise or even a military enterprise or spy enterprise)..

    This is everyone not looking at the reality of how powerful one admistration can be. What real threat is this company to the bottom line. This goes back to the 70s when americans were shunning american made cars for better made foreign cars. If the product is better and cheaper then why not buy it??? I dont care too much for the terms "american made" or "owned by this ethnic group so buy here only" wtf... I work hard for my money and I pay for what I want!!! I have a android phone and my wife th iphone. I prefer the android cause of the ease for my usage. Im not a fan boy but either phone I have been able to use. The Huawei phones are interesting and I have no knowlegde of how they work but this like you say takes it off the table as an option!!!

    Since Huaweis rising success, and trumps angst and biggoted hate towards Chinese trade affairs, it seems almost purposely planned out that trump has been pressing this ban and for no good reason either. Google, Facebook, Apple and many other MAJOR worldwide US companies have been forcefully government tracking Americans for years, ESPECIALLY after the Bush administration forced phone tapping and all proprietor networks and tech tracking be immediately out into effect right after 9/11 happened, and now all of sudden, trump and his administration, who have already been widely proved and believed to have even more conspirators between his own election being rigged by Russia and Facebook propaganda, wants to bitch and gets upset about not getting everything he wants from China and other countries and decides to ban them out of pure what a hypocrisy of a country the US is lmao.

    It may hurt Huawei, but this will also hurt people like Google. If Huawei is forced to create alternatives to Android then it will start to put them into competition with Google, which may not be competitive in the USA but could easily end up effectively competing with Android in non-US markets (even potentially blocking Android in China).

    Funny how as a tech video site, you are more concerned about the diversity of tech in this country and seem to totally discount the security issues posed by their company. Don't forget, this company and ZTE are located in a totally communist country where nobody does anything of consequence without obtaining the government's permission. It's pretty clear to objective observers that China is in the middle of a massive expansion of its military in an attempt to broaden its influence and power in Southeast Asia and beyond.

    What this Huawei "issue" is more about than just Huawei phone devices, is that they're already putting up true 5G in China and elsewhere. It's unfortunate for the U.S. to be *way* behind China's 5G rollout! Because true 5G is a long way off here in the U.S.. *That's* the real reason for this attack on Huawei because the U.S. *still* has the ability to combat cybersecurity, but no real 5G rollout plan. Therefore, those of us in the U.S. miss out AGAIN on progress... kin to no high-speed rail, still in 2019!

    The Kirin chip has an ARM Core CPU in the design that is licensed out to them but the US government has told ARM to revoke the license. Nearly all phones have ARM processors and a small percent have Intel chips. The Kirin is a SOC (System on Chip) meaning more or less a computer in itself. It will be very difficult for them to design a CPU and will have to find another company who does it but as far as I know, ARM and Intel are the only ones.
