VLC is available on Huawei phones in the Play Store again

Last summer, the VLC developers got fed up with Huawei and took drastic action. In a firey tweet, the VideoLAN team declared that Huawei's aggressive background task management was causing issues, so VLC was blocking those phones from downloading the app in the Play Store. It seemed like a bit of an overreaction, but the block has now been lifted.

The Nexus 6P was one of those phones with high initial quality that failed the test of time.

Nexus 6P owners may be eligible for as much as $400 in restitution from Google and Huawei.

Huawei expects to overtake Samsung and Apple, become world's largest smartphone manufacturer in 2019

Huawei is on a success rocket with consumers around (most of) the world. In a few years, the company turned from the cheap smartphone maker we barely looked at to a flagship machine. That strategy has paid off. Once out of the top ranking of smartphone brands, it now sits comfortably in third place, behind Samsung and Apple, growing while their numbers continue to shrink. But Huawei is not content about that bronze medal, it wants gold and it aims to get it soon.

Huawei has now tried passing off DSLR photos as smartphone shots three times - it should know better

A few days back, stories broke that Huawei had tried to pass off not just one, but at least two photos as part of teaser images for the upcoming P30's telescopic optical zoom. Both were professional DSLR shots, one of which was easily reverse-searched as being from a stock image repository on the web, the other outed as shot by someone back in 2009. The facts came to light quickly and without much effort: Huawei was caught red-handed, and its later attempts to sidestep an apology seemed half-hearted at best (which, no: Huawei has not apologized - its statement admits no fault of any kind).
