Sure, Europe. Here's our Android suite without Search, Chrome apps. Now pay the Google tax


I echo what others have said above, it will make devices less desirable moving forward. I have been a long-term iOS user but will be switching to Android within the next month. If I found that the phone I was planning on purchasing was to come without the play store, chrome or google search the chance of me purchasing that device would quickly approach 0%. I will be checking up on this before I purchase as I have no intention of using the samsung internet browser or Bixby. I am going Android for the customisation and the fact that I am invested in google services.
