>If they provide a good alternative to the Play Store, I'd be more than happy.
A few months back while I was looking for a new phone and doing the research, Huawei was not on the short-list. Reason: they're not unlock friendly, and no Lineage (or at least AOSP) support.
You'd have thought the embargo would have made them more flexible on this front; it would have been an no-cost way for them to score points with the rest of the world in addition to making easier for people to get their google dope if they're so inclined.
Google are jealously guarding their wares for business reasons, but Huawei seem to be equally control-freak for no obvious reason.
