Anonymous, 2 hours agovote for the non promising option
it will not take over the world, c’mon.I doesn’t need to take over the world…. Even 10% of the market share will just be enough for now.

conspiracy to bring down the chinese firm by the american, so far the american cant come up with any evidence for spying, and yet america have been spying on some EU countries, how fair is that? HUAWEI did nothing wrong, this is fact,

Wrong Question asked! The Question which should have been aksed.
Will you buy Harmony OS Phone?
Lazer Boy, 2 hours agoSo let’s say this HarmonyOS stuff works out, but what’s the need to buy their phones… moreListen kid, you’ve got no idea how these companies work. They depend on user data, the only difference is that it’s either encrypted to not show your personal information or it shows everything about you. Google is definitely following the latter, I can talk about a corsair headphone to my colleague and I’ll have a recommendation on deals within 10 minutes of not searching.
Mikeromeoz, 30 minutes agoIt’s as promising as android because it IS android. Or a fork of it anyway.It isn’t. But it uses AOSP layer for Android compatibility. For time being, anyway. Possible, that Huawei will drop it after migration period.
What, 35 minutes agoWindows phone was very good and still the best looking os ever made. The problem was the lack … moreProblem was ‘lack’ of apps. What does Spygle offer that Microsoft didn’t, besides of millions
useless apps in Play store?

The problem was the lack … moreI’ve tried windowsOS and I liked it but that had to start ground up with new phones and stuff but huawei has an advantage here because of their plan on updating 100 device series dating all the way back to Mate/P9. This alone gives them a lot of users instantly.

Windows phone was very good and still the best looking os ever made. The problem was the lack of Google service.
It will be uphill battle for Harmony. Same as it was for Windows Phone. Both are late to party and Android us very established. Also it will largely depend on filling up app gap, because app support and amount of apps was one major issue for Windows phones. It wasn’t bad OS, it just came too late and offer too little to make up for it. Also I do think whole privacy thing, regardless of evidence or which side you are on, won’t help. I am sure it won’t be flop overall, it had good chances in it’s domestic Chinese market. But outside it will be though battle. Personally I definitely would love to see Android getting more competition than just iOS, it really needs it, but I am not sure if Harmony is it or not.
No chance. Not for one company. Its not Apple where you have a lot more. No apps = no people/customers. Somebody said its China brand strong locally but even there you have Apple and a lot of other companies using Android. So whats the point to use phones with HarmonyOS ?
For me its even more wired that LG quit when such a big player – Huawei lose USA/EU market.
SpiritWolf, 2 hours agoPeople like you are mystery for me. Telling people how to vote, as if this poll changes anythi… moreHe’s not afraid, you guys just make a very big deal about this android-based OS while it doesn’t have anything that’s standout and still haven’t seen any real world usage yet.
Lazer Boy, 1 hour agoIt’s true but those companies only collect our information because of online ads or somet… moreDo you happen to have any evidence? I really doubt. Even US government doesn’t have, or they have disclosed it long time ago. Just words. And btw. After that what happened in US last year, I don’t think that US is somehow ‘more free’ country than China. Actually vice versa.
skimminstones, 1 hour agodepends if all apps work with it. Windows was a beautiful OS but unusable due to so little opt… moreYes, finally someone gets it. Windows Mobile was a very good and ahead of time operating system much better than android and iOS at the time. Microsoft’s only failure was they were unable to hook in developers to make apps for Windows.
Developers won’t make apps for any new platform unless they get some kind of motivation, be it market share money or ease of developing apps on the platform compared to the profit it can generate.
It’s hard to make any comment about this. It depends on how many people willing to try out new things, especially for a mobile OS without Google Play Services, and also how Huawei marketed HarmonyOS to consumers and app developers.
In China, this will succeed. Since Huawei already has the TV, smart speaker, laptop, and tablet ecosystem, simple updates can iron out the bugs and get this ball rolling into smart homes.
In the west, I would say techies would love this but…so long as Huawei doesn’t allow rooting, it’s going to be difficult.
Lol it’s just android with a different name
