The Huawei Mate 30 Pro

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro was revealed last week and it looks to be one of the phones in contention for the best android device for 2019. However it's flawed and a warning comes attached with getting one of these devices. 

Due to its ongoing political troubles with the US government, Huawei is forced to release its best device without the core Google Play store and its services. There were comments made by Richard Yu that there may be ways to unofficially install google services and hence open its bootloader so users can sideload apps on top of it. Now, Huawei have said and confirmed, according to Android Authority, that it does not intend to unlock its bootloader. 

Huawei are well within their full rights to do is since unlocking a bootloader can potentially allow illegal and malware based Google APK's. The downside to this however remains that Huawei will have to spend their efforts convincing users to jump on getting a device.
