    Could be some good deals out there soon enough, might keep an eye out myself for one of the pro series.

    You can't side load the APK guys
    Future Huawei handsets will fail ctsprofile / safety net.
    The actual device fingerprint may be blocked aswell

    These are proprietary software, Huawei would have to oblige in not allowing the apps to run.

    i was reading (might have been on Reddit) where someone tried to return their P30 to JB HiFi but they were declined because it was considered a "change of mind"- which I think is absolute BS

    No it isn't.

    If anything take it up with the manufacturer aka Huawei Aus.

    Why is it BS..? The phone isn't faulty, and theres been no voluntary or enforced refund scheme at manufactuer level, so JB have no obligation to refund

    This thread should be elsewhere because the US vs Huawei battle is political, Google is just one of the weapons.

    If China retaliate, then the US tech industry can be screwed by something as simple as China banning rare earth metal shipments to the US.

    No, I'm saying incorrect that China doing something in retaliation will screw up the US tech industry. It won't.
