Huawei P40 5G is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is a great life out there without Google I got this phone though Carphone warehouse and it has been now 5 months of use, never thought i can survive without google services ... BUT GUESS WHAT? ... there is a better far greater vast life out of google mental wall once you break free. this Big device on all specs Small in the size is a breakthrough masterpiece from Huawei. good size for one busy hand use, Great Camera performance you can literally touch the moon surface with 30 x zoom. fast, reliable, battery life is awesome .... I am impressed. also a lot of apps by android are there to replace google apps, you can download Here maps to replace google maps, even better. the only app i wanted to get but unfortunately not available at all on Huawei P40 is my Barclays Bank. I would definitely recommend this great phone if you can live and survive without Google. F

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good phone, didn't know about u.s banning China, had to send it back not worth getting if you can't use Google apps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with the switch I have now had a few weeks with my device and I will be honest, the lack of Google did concern me to begin with when I was looking at buying but after a small amount of research it completely changed my mind! The ability to get apps is super easy but what really stuck out to me was the use of phone clone thats built into the devices natively. A ton of apps that aren't currently available on App Gallery actually moved over and still logged in! Huawei are always known to have great cameras so that was a huge reason I wanted to grab this phone and I haven't been let down. I have grabbed some great photos already and highly recommend it on this front. Overall it's a superb piece of kit and I recommend it to anyone who wants some top tier tech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hardware, that's worth the extra work... So over the years I've always shopped around for different brands and phones, and my Huawei devices were the only ones that seemed to last the full 2 year life cycle (my Mate 10 Pro is still fully functional with healthy battery) and so I was keen to stick with the brand despite their lack of Play Store access, as long as I could get the apps I needed. So I took a gamble and went with the P40 this year, only half knowing what to expect. I knew there were some Apps that weren't going to work, but as long as I had my essentials I could live with that, knowing the hardware is superb and will last the 2 years while Huawei work to improve their software ecosystem. Through using AppGallery and Petal Search (which I wish was better advertised initially) I've managed to get 95% of my daily apps up and running - this includes YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Waze, Deezer, Zoom, GMail via Huawei Email etc. The only app that is yet to work is my Barclays banking - which I now access via the DuckDuckGo privacy browser with VPN built in (created a shortcut onto home screen for ease of use) A lot of apps function perfectly fine but will still show messages saying they won't fully function even though they do - this is the only time I really remember the devices don't run via Google Services. Some apps like RingGo have limited functionality but once again do work (will have to manually enter car park number as opposed to using location to find where you are) To my surprise most Google Apps still function too and/or are accessible via the browser. Being forced away from Google has allowed me to discover alternative apps I actually prefer! Waze, YouTube Vanced, DuckDuckGo are just a few examples. To summarise - If you want incredible hardware and are happy to explore the possibilities of Android outside Google, and are willing to put in a little extra work to make the device truly feel like YOURS, then go for it. No regrets.
