In our hands-on Huawei P40 Pro review, we wrote:
“It’s not as eye-catching as the brand’s foldable Mate Xs, but the P40 Pro once again shows Huawei knows how to build a phone. From the camera to the screen, this is every bit the Samsung Galaxy S20 rival it wants to be.
“The success still rests on the App Gallery growing into something far superior to what it currently is, and that’s a big ask.”
The ongoing issue with Huawei phones is, of course, their inability to use Google apps. This was brought about by the US’ conflict with the Chinese phone manufacturer. US officials allege that Huawei could use its technology for espionage purposes and, for those reasons, also tried to discourage the UK from allowing Huawei tech to be used in its 5G network.
However, there is one workaround that could help you to get Android apps onto a Huawei P40.
