Huawei has been surviving the US ban for a couple of years now. The Chinese tech giant is still in the smartphone business and keeps releasing new phones each year. However, Huawei is no more commanding the market like it used to. The company is barely surviving due to multiple bans from the United States commerce department. Huawei Xiaomi

To make things clearer, Huawei has lost millions of Users around the globe due to the US sanctions. The loss of Huawei simply gives space for other companies to gain. Companies like Xiaomi and Apple are at the forefront of the companies to gain most from Huawei’s loss.

    There are more customers in CN than in the US, the ban shouldn’t affect huawei too much. I thought CN had all the chip tech needed, as they said. So definitely not declining because of the ban. Too easy to accuse the ban, when you see other chinese brands progressing. Xiaomi isn’t a US brand last time I checked, and they thrive. So… I just believe huawei arrogance killed them.
