      smartphone leader doesn’t mean you brought anything to the market. We have plenty of successful companies to prove it. Successful… but never really brought anything. Huawei doesn’t hold all the 5G patents, far from it. Nor in Digital photography. That’s a very stupid argument actually. Digital photography existed awy before even huawei became a thingy and will exist far later after huawei will die. Plus If huawei does nice pics, so do other brands. I won’t list it, I don’t think you are as lost, pretty sure you know them. huawei is an arrogant company, backed by their government, thus get full spotlight all year long. Used as an argument in trade war, used as an argument to prove that china finally fulfilled their dream to become something on the tech scene… but it’s nothing more than a company stealing and copying ideas. Not only ideas, as they even been taken physically stealing prototypes… huawei huawei huawei. soon, in china, will be a crime to dislike huawei. Will be considered as an antipatriotic act to not have one. Ridiculous. can’t wait to see this brand die.
