The trade ban from the US government means that the latest Huawei phones can’t run Google services (Gmail, Google Play Store, etc.) This is probably a deal-breaker most especially to foreign markets like Uganda. However, without the PlayStore, there is still a way to install apps on to your phone. If you wouldn’t mind the extra work, the Huawei brand is a highly recommended one for smartphones.
