      <blockquote><em><a href="#414270">In reply to paul-thurrott:</a></em></blockquote><p>While this data breach could end up being devastating to HMD Global's nascent Android business, it does appear to be an honest snafu, affecting only a limited number of handsets. </p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#414283">In reply to christian.hvid:</a></em></blockquote><p>And I'm sure Huawei would get the same benefit of the doubt if you replaced the words "Nokia/HMD" with "Huawei in that story I linked to.</p>

          <blockquote><em><a href="#414295">In reply to paul-thurrott:</a></em></blockquote><p>In the US, they obviously wouldn't. In the rest of the world, Huawei doesn't seem to be particularly distrusted.</p>

            <blockquote><em><a href="#414317">In reply to christian.hvid:</a></em></blockquote><p>Yes. Most of the rest of the world prefers to go with facts, not with baseless accusations.</p>

              <blockquote><em><a href="#414580">In reply to paul-thurrott:</a></em></blockquote><p>I'd argue that most of the world has gone pretty fact-resistant in recent years, although not every country is engaging in a cold war with China. </p>

                <blockquote><em><a href="#414626">In reply to christian.hvid:</a></em></blockquote><p>China did usurp the sovereign territory of six Pacific countries with their artificial islands, so it’s not just the US that China is working against.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#414270">In reply to paul-thurrott:</a></em></blockquote><p>Um because they are an arm of the state as are most Chinese businesses. You are so trapped in a democratic ( not party but system) mindset), you don't get that off to the gulag you go. </p>

    <p>So… hasn't almost everybody been caught doing this? I mean, I'm happy to have a discussion about the issues Huawei faces, but this one is… I just don't care. I don't EVER believe that ANY photo from ANY advertisement is taken with the hardware they say it is.</p><p><br></p><p>Never buy based on an ad.

    <p>For some reason the comments here have devolved into personal comments that are unacceptable.</p><p><br></p><p>I have the same relationship with Huawei that I have with any company whose products I review: I review them and return them as requested. Period. Getting products for review doesn't influence me in any way. I've been reviewing hardware for 20 years. If anything, the hardware is a burden.</p><p><br></p><p>Also, not that it's anyone freaking business, but I'm not a liberal. I am a registered independent. I like to think for myself. Shocker, I know. </p><p><br></p><p>There is absolutely no reason to comment on this. Just move along, please. </p><p><br></p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#414579">In reply to paul-thurrott:</a></em></blockquote><p>Thanks for clarifying your stance on product reviews. While clearly unpopular, I stand by sites having a published standards and practices and ethics statement. </p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#414591">In reply to provision l-3:</a></em></blockquote><p>I don't have a problem with that. I'll talk to the team about putting together something along those lines. Trust is important to me.</p>
