Is there a risk to getting Huawei?

Hi, I want to upgrade to the P30 Pro bit I dont know whether that would be risky considering all of the stuff going on with Huawei/Google/Trump. Can anyone who knows more than me on this situation advise?

Current phones will be fine but the next generation are rumoured to have their own OS which may not include any Google apps.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

The value of the phone after you purchase it will drop drastically meaning you will probably need to keep it for the full term of the contract. As an example, the P20 is now worth £120 and the HUAWEI P30 Pro 128GB worth £125.

Personally I wouldn't even think of buying Huawei phones at the moment.
