Reasons why Huawei users should not be worried over US blacklisting

While Huawei Technologies has long been under attack by the US government, the recent moves from the latter was triggered by the trade war involving China.

Should Huawei consumers be worried?

Users of Huawei devices, particularly, were alarmed amid the rising tension, but should Huawei consumers be worried? 

We, the GIZGUIDE, tried to provide a breakdown of the happenings, including the decisions of the American government, as well as statements from Huawei, and the country's dominant telco players. 

First, the market was hit over the weekend by the news about the executive order signed by US President Donald Trump, declaring a national emergency against potential threats to information and communications technology and services. 

Subsequently, its Department of Commerce included Huawei under its blacklist, hindering the firm to do business with American companies.

On Sunday, US-based technology giant revoked Huawei's Android license to comply with the directive of Trump. Another leader Qualcomm was reportedly mandated its employees to stop their negotiations with the Chinese firm. 

Blocking Huawei to use US-manufactured technologies and components could bar it to sell devices running Google apps and the Play store. 

But while these could affect Huawei operations, it remained bullish it could somehow surpass the situation.

So why Huawei users should not be worried yet? 

The Department of Commerce softened its restrictions against Huawei as it provided a temporary license to maintain its current product, which is good for 90 days, an ample time for Huawei to at least apply its contingency plans. 

This means that Huawei will continue its business relationships with Google and other US firms to release software updates to existing hardware.

But Huawei, as the leader in the technology space, not just in China but globally, its founder Ren Zhengfei said the US was "underestimating Huawei's capabilities."

Zhengfei said the group has contingency plans to cushion the impact of the trade restrictions. The official also stressed he doesn't see any company catching up to its technology.

In such a critical moment, I’m grateful to US companies, as they’ve contributed a lot to Huawei’s development and showed their conscientiousness on the matter. As far as I know, US companies have been making efforts to persuade the US government to let them cooperate with Huawei

Huawei also said it has built an alternative operating systems and stockpiled hardware. 

For Filipino Huawei users issued by PLDT-Smart and Globe Telecom, both telcos already assured the devices would continue to function normally on their networks. 

PLDT-Smart and Globe Telecom vowed they would deliver updates regarding the matter. 

So stop worrying and enjoy your Huawei devices as we are sure the Chinese tech giant could bounce back from this issue.
