Huawei P40 5G is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its better than I expected I have read through the comments before i wrote this. I realize a lot of people are talking about not being able to have your apps installed. Personally, before purchasing P40, I have already known that the phone is not google supported. After I received my phone, I used an app called Phone Clone tp transfer my apps over (There are plenty of guidance or videos for this online to show you how to do it step by step). Within the Huawei App Gallery (its app store basically), there is also another pp called "MoreApps" to show you where to get all you apps. I know the process may sound daunting to some but its really not as bad as you thought. Especially given the excellent hardware, including the camera and the battery. I would say P40 worth you a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a nice phone for artist It is a amazing camera when I start a livestream performance. It helps me to create high quality and instant engagement videos. Also, the phone clone has provided seamless transition to my new phone, which is great. The silver color and glass touch point has transfered a new futurism style. Especially for the night , it's shiny and special. Tbh, it's really good to bring it when you going to a show or party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! took a little time but worth it! I just upgraded to the New P40 from my P20, loved the camera so much. Before I made that decision, I was actually really worried about the lack of GMS being an issue on the P40, but I was really strongly drawn in by the great design and brilliant camera system on the device. When I got it, I found without google play, it was a little bit hard for me to get apps, in the beginning. I checked on the UK Huawei Community, Lets put in this way, it was really helpful, start from phone clone, actually helped to get most of the apps from my P20 to my new phone, and after that, but still has few app have the issue but not the most imporant one. Facebook, Whats app, all good, ‘MoreApps’, this is the one i am highly recommened which can easily guide you through how to get access to the app you need, the layout is very like Google Play, very straight forward, for example, YouTube, Twitter, EBay and so on. Although, some apps link me to the web version, it does give me exactly what I needed. Once again, I love this camera. if you worried about the apps, have a look my review, i wont say 100% no issues, but 100% not bad as you thought

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great hardware but highly limited software The device could have the best hardware and looks in the world but essentially it's a beautiful brick. Without any Google services, and believe me when I say you use them even when you think you dont eg the APP store, the device is like using a dumb/feature phone from the 90s. Its price is about 80% too high given the limitation. I used to love Huawei devices but without Google services they are pretty useless. Real shame that US political decisions and protectionism are now affecting consumer choice.
