    It sounds to me as if US companies are to blame Huawei's dominance in the IT field. In a market economy, the most innovative companies reap the largest market share. American companies failed to invest in 4G technology and now foreign companies dominate the market.

    Doesn't that remind you of the Gladiator after it beats the jealous King? Huawei has beat Apple despite being banned from their dying world largest economy and the largest smear campaign by the US around the world.

    For some jealous Americans and its spy agencies: it is just simply "the scariest company ever"! It won't able to spy on Angla Merkel any longer. Apple dropped 30% despite US government's global smear campaign against Huawei. Huawei also just blow past Apple by a wide margin, global sales just increased 50%.

    11:11 Thats right! You don't have the time nor money to invest in your requirements at home! I mean, if you did, then who would be sowing the seeds of mischief all around the world? Can't let that honour go to anyone else!

    2:10 Yes but hypocritical! I guess it is more acceptable for the NSA to do what Huawei is being accused of possibly doing in the future. Gives you wonderfully warm and fuzzy feeling when your own does it to you! Not some…foreigner..!

    The west has built China’s economy with their lust for cheap Chinese goods and labour over decades , now China is reaping the benefit and is fast becoming the No 1 Supereconomy and on the way to the No 1 Superpower, take it on the chin US !

    I love my Huawei Nova 3i. Except one thing I hate is you can't put it in a water proof bag because it just has a thing coming up that says "don't cover the top." My old huawei didn't have that and you can put it in a water proof bag.
