    Huawei phones are great, I am on my 2nd though it's not one of the newest.

    I haven't decided yet on the security things, I think there may well be commercial interests at play here.

    Aren't there always? Next we'll be asking for a UK government owned mobile phone company because phone companies make a profit and design phones as they choose..

    I understand the concerns, yet people are allowing Amazon Echo.Dots (Alexas) Apple Siris and Google Assistants into their homes which are spying on the occupants of the house, listening in and reporting conversations back to HQ.

    My son who works in the security industry,The concerns over this firm is not that of Chinese government part owning it,but rather its inferstructure is not compatible for what the Uk needs and there are lots of other technical problems.

    I don't. Nor do I have a smart TV for the same reasons, and the camera lens on my laptop has been known to be covered up (until the post-it note falls off).

    Most of us would never qualify to respond to many questions on here if we had to be experts in the field to answer... Or we'd wing it anyway to get our two peneth in:D

    I wonder if BT will get a contract to contribute to building the Chinese 5G network?

    Ive got a Huawei phone and a Tablet that just cost £75. Excellent devices. Why waste money on Apple eye candy?

    According to Line of Duty any registered phone can be tracked if need be, though to be fair most of us who post on here have fairly uneventful nay boring lives that no one would be interested in just for the sake of it... Back to series 4... Not sure if it's season 5 on TV now that I've gotten this far... Anyone know?

    Global Britain doesnt need to be shackled to those high regulation slow growth trade partners anymore: EU, USA, AusNZCan. Were going where the moneys at: China and India. Think of the opportunities to come.
