At first glance, the P40 Pro provides everything you could possibly want from a high-end smartphone. It looks slick and boasts some of the best cameras on smartphone to date.
Downside is, while the device does come with Google’s Android 10 operating system, you won’t be able to get any Google services. That means no access to Google maps or the Google Play store.
To offset this, Huawei has added Huawei Home Services, which uses TomTom in place of Google maps. The Chinese tech giant has also added its own version of the Google Store. However, the amount of popular apps available is limited right now.
