Huawei Watch 2's Oreo update disables Android Pay for users outside the US and UK

If you've got a Huawei Watch 2, you may want to hold off installing the new Oreo update for now. According to users on reddit, the update appears to disable the Android Pay app on watches that are outside the US or UK, even though Android Pay works in several other countries, including Australia and Canada.

[Update: Reviews all deleted] Huawei loads its Best Buy Mate 10 Pro listing with over 100 fake reviews, inevitably gets caught

Almost three months ago, we reviewed Huawei's Mate 10 Pro. We concluded that it'd a good buy when it hit the US market, so long as it wasn't priced at $1000. Well, Huawei hasn't made that mistake (the phone is currently $799.99 with a $150 gift card at Best Buy), but it isn't doing itself any favors today. The company has overloaded the Mate 10 Pro's Best Buy listing with over 100 fake reviews from aspiring "beta testers," giving the phone - one still in the pre-order phase, mind you - a 4.9-star overall rating.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro comes through JerryRigEverything testing (mostly) unscathed

Huawei's Mate 10 Pro is finally launching in the US, but not the way Huawei would probably like. Both AT&T and Verizon are reported to have dropped plans to sell the phone after pressure from the government. You can get the phone unlocked, but it's spendy. At least it'll be a durable device if you do drop the cash. YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has subjected the Mate 10 Pro to the usual battery of tests, and it earns a passing grade.

[Deal Alert] Get the Mate 10 Pro for $699.99 ($100 off) via Massdrop

Huawei's Mate 10 Pro is a good phone, but it's not one you'll be able to get from your carrier. Deals with AT&T and Verizon both collapsed in the face of government pressure, but it's launching in the US as an unlocked phone later this month. Massdrop has this phone today, and it's offering $100 off.

US Huawei Mate 9 is now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Back in October, Huawei began sending out invitations to an Oreo beta for the Mate 9. We're at the end of January now, and the US-compatible Mate 9 is finally receiving its official update to Android 8.0 Oreo. Some international models have had Oreo for some time now, but those of us in America are only just getting it.

Honor providing View10 devices to prominent custom ROM and kernel developers

Now that Huawei's plans of selling phones on US carriers have fallen apart, the company appears to be trying something different - appealing to hardcore Android enthusiasts looking for inexpensive phones. OnePlus is easily the leader in that niche, after Google stopped selling its budget-friendly Nexus phones. The Honor View10 (Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei) is already targeting OnePlus, and now the company is helping community developers create ROMs, recoveries, and kernels.

Verizon reportedly drops plans to sell Huawei phones due to increasing government pressure

Huawei is one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers, but the company doesn't have much of a footprint in the United States. It hoped to change that by selling the Mate 10 Pro with U.S. carriers, but the day before the news was going to be announced, AT&T pulled out of the deal due to government pressure.

Honor 8 to get EMUI 8.0 features ported but not EMUI 8.0 / Oreo itself, other Honor devices slated to receive Oreo update listed

Huawei's been releasing Oreo betas for several of its phones, but we still haven't heard much about updates for Honor-branded devices. Now Huawei has published a list of all the devices that Oreo is being developed for. Oddly, the Honor 8 is mentioned in spite of a confirmation from Honor India on Twitter that the phone wouldn't be getting Oreo.

Honor View10 review: Huawei's impressive answer to OnePlus

The mid-range flagship market has been a heated place in the last few years, with OnePlus coming out on top and filling the void that was left by the Nexus phones (6 excluded). While it may be no shocker to anyone why this is, it also shouldn't be a surprise to see some of the big players in the world take notice of OnePlus' success in this space. Cue Hua-, er, Honor with the View10, a device aimed squarely at the 5T.

Until now, the View10 (also called the V10) was sold outside of the U.S. and therefore not really relevant in a competitive sense to us here in the States.
