Yeah you got to think again about future support of these phones.
Also diminished resale.
No no no no noooo…
It's not a good time to buy Huawei, especially at these prices.
Are people still paying top dollar for Huawei phones.
Going to wait till they are like $200 tops
It is always good to have a dream.
depends how much info the masses are aware about the situation of Huawei..
the market will dictate how much these phones end up selling for…
if not enough people buy at these prices
it will keep dropping until there is a massive firesale..
like the situation with the HP TouchPad
Going to wait till they are like $200 tops
Hopefully you'll tell us where you get almonds for $10/kg before that happens.
Here we go again…
I expect it should drop even more
Half price or go the huawei
Huawei to Hell - AC/DC
or another way of putting it
Do you choose Huawei or the highway.
Thanks, just bought 5.
Hi,do you want to sell me one for $50?
i raise you to $150
but checked ebay, recent ended listing, p30pro still sold for $1200 (second hand few weeks/months). weird, eh?
Not too weird. Seems to be a great phone. Future support is overrated, and those who care enough can always go the mod way.
So still a good phone
Isn't bootloader locked on Huawei phones? So no custom roms.
Don't expect this policy to continue if Google support really ends. (Google is still on a temporary waiver till the end of August)
they have 2 ebay accounts and they bid hoping to inflate on the price
I think the appropriate price should be:
Huawei P30 Pro $135.28,
Huawei P30 Pro Dual Sim $139.80,
Huawei P30 Dual Sim $93.33
then people will buy in bulk and resale to China, you wont have a chance to buy.
Yep my uncle already called me asking me if they are cheap in Australia
You gotta get in quick mate. That's why we're on OzBargain.
hmmm…. you can buy cheaper paperweights at $2 shops
These will increase in value as Google will continue to support existing made phones. I own a P30 and its awesome.
i don't think people are saying the p30 series are not a great phone (they are). But they are a bad buy.
For people who normally buys phone and keeps them for 4 years, they won't get ANY major updates. So why should they pay at these prices?
For tech lovers who wants the latest and greatest, they won't get ANY resell value. So why should they pay at these prices?
I don't know who should buy these phones at these prices. If you can get them for 700 max (for the pro), that would be a great bargain. That's a good compromise for the loss of support. If you can get a GT watch on top (or the sonos), even better).
4 years? Maybe 3 at best.
All the resellers are going to stock pile these phones getting panic sold by people for next to nothing. Then when the ban lifts…which it will in the next few months…(I think it will anyway) they will make a decent profit selling the reconditioned phones at a big margin.
why will the ban lift?
Because Huawei is just being used as a way for Trump to get what he wants in the trade war. Too many American companies are going to be affected from not being able to sell components to Huawei. It's all part of his game.
Someone else will pick up the slack aand he knows it.
Lets not forget Huawei is a really dodgy company. They have literally stolen their way to the top. The fact they also have strong links with China's government is just icing on the cake. For their actions alone they deserve a ban forget the national security stuff.
2004 caught stealing Cisco's source code. These routers are used in China's great firewall.
They have been busted multiple times at trade shows opening up competitors products and taking photos.
Just look it up they have been caught stealing just so many times. Way before any of this trade stuff came up.
@kasp: they allegedly sold tech to iran in contravention of bans/embargos.. then iran lobs a couple of rockets that almost hit the US embassy.. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time hey Huawei. Like a guy doing a hold up in a gun store.
@tonsta: wasn't that zte, not huawei
@waterbottled: Both, Zte was dealt with some time ago, Huawei's daughter is under arrest in Canada at the moment awaiting extradition to the US for breaching the Iran ban.
@tonsta: U know, US selling weapons to Turkey, and Turkey sell to IS.
@ti6331: umm…no one cares.
@ti6331: LOL WAT?!!! Dude whatcha smokin'?
@kasp: Huawei's Founder:"How can we steal what they don't have!" ROFL!!!
Let's not get caught up on media brainwashing. No proof as yet. All hearsay and suggestive chatter.
If what Trump is doing was done to the USA, they'd literally fly to your country and blow you out of bed!!
@KobiOshi: They have been caught heaps of times over the years/. This isn't some conspiracy. A lot of their networking gear was running Cisco's stolen source code and a lot of the tech looked like it was just flat out ripped off.
They have been caught trying to steal competitions IP's heaps of times times as well.
that doesn't answer the question, why will they lift the ban?
@tonsta: Because economics will always out do human rights in the current political climate. If the company says they will play nice, and the trade deal is favourable enough to America, then all this will be forgotten as a “beat up”.
Bcoz Trump is using Huawei as a leverage for the trade deal with China…
Huawei is nothing in the bigger picture.. a mere sideshow/distraction. If huawei goes out of business no one will really notice, its happened before to companies bigger than huawei.
@tonsta: out of curiosity, which bigger company (if not companies) you were referring to?
@0031nek: the company Huawei eventually crashed… Norton is an example since we are talking tech anyone remember Nokia? there was this small company called Kodak Eastman that used to do cameras and allowed you to print them on stuff called photo paper at a local chemist.
walking down memory lane of broken companies here.
@tonsta: yes but Nokia met their own demise because they reluctant to have android as their OS that time and they went with their own Symbian and then the Memo or something. And the rest that you've mentioned got nothing to do as being a pawn in any trade war.
edit: Meego i think was the Nokia N9 running on that time, and it was a silky buttery smooth OS without a competitive app store that time.
ps: source - my cousin used to own a Nokia N9 and we were laughing at her that time for the OS solely.
@tonsta: those are irrelevant instances in the current situation Huawei is in…
@waterbottled: Wasn't referring to trade wars, Just referring to game changing large businesses that went bust which people though were so important but now just distant memories. Huawei will Be no different, there is nothing particularly special about Huawei. Pawn in a trade war or not.
The trade war started is shaking up things, disrupting the Chinese business model.
@tonsta: Your examples are still irrelevant to this situation. The company is not producing obsolete technology it is a purely political issue they are caught in. 5G is important technology and the company may well find backdoors by partnering with other organisations or finding other countries to sell to. I think they will take a hit but I wouldn’t write them off yet. Apple, at one point, went through a massive slump and came out with the right technologies. Lots of companies that partnered with Germany and Japan in the Second World War are thriving. People have short memories.
hoping the next lot of huawei redemptions is going to be something super, so we can get a "cheap" price on these again like we could at the start of the month
Huawei reworking these paperweight?
I will buy half price maybe, considering the Google situation
so many day dreamer today, did the cold freeze their brain?
This is the next LG
I didn't even know they made phones in Hawaii.
They sell you on the Hula and all you get is a hoop.
Nice phone, but not having access to Google service like YouTube, Gmail, Playstore in less then 90 days…no thanks..I'll take P30 Pro for $200 max.
i raise you to $300 max
P30 Pro will have YouTube, Gmail, Playstore. But it could be the last Huawei phone with those features. https://www.trustedreviews.com/news/google-suspends-android-...
prices have gone down quicker than Sydney house prices… i was tempted to use the 12th Mans "gone down quicker than a $2 hooker".. but I won't.
Maybe 10 years later
Huawei will be alright.
China will bend the knee, tariff negotiations will take place and the world will keep turning.
Read whatever history books you can ever find about communist countries and then you know you are totally wrong.
Only that China is not a "communist" country after all… calling present China a communist country is an insult to commmunisim.
Communism is an insult to Human Rights
@ti6331: So is capitalism, money rules. Look at the conditions some workers have to endure.
would be funny to hear a Cuban say "Filthy communist pigs!!!"
Bend over and take it up the @$z and the lord master (US) may let them use their service again.
China will not bend the knee, you may be the victim of the Trade war.
Which IP was stolen for them to produce the P30 pro? Arguably the best camera phone on the market right now, who are they to steal from?
errr… rewind 15 years… what happen to Nortel?
How about the Opimum War:the British selling opimum to China and eight countries invaded China and asked for millions for compensation.
How about the Nanjing Mascara, the Japanese refused to admit.
How about after the Second World war,millions of Chinese died,there is no compensation at all.
Without all these, the communist may not gain power.
The party is smart, they keep teaching the people these past atrocities to keep them in power. "The party is the only who keeps you safe".
North Korea do the same thing in an overt way, the Chinese just do it on a covert way.
The party keep mentioning how many millions of Chinese have been killed by this group and that group, the party fail to mention the party, in particular Mao, killed more than all the groups combined x5.
Doesn’t negate that the other atrocities occurred, though. There is an argument to make on their “strong borders”. The “civilised” worlds have been casually slaughtering outright, or through neglect killing, native populations for centuries. The native Americans, our own Aboriginals, nations they’ve invaded. I’m no great fan of the Communist experiments but religion, as an excuse, has probably killed a much higher percentage of the worlds population over the centuries than Communism and the current lot are not as blood thirsty as their forebears. Frankly there aren’t many countries I would hold up as a beacon of hope. People care more for their owned short term self interest than the bigger picture; even if their long term self interest would be to care more for the bigger picture.
What's the OSS support like for these Huawei phones? If they have official Lineage builds these may end up being a good buy.
There has been so many talks about how the price of P30 Pro has dropped by 70% - 90% to like $400. I want to ask, where the hell do I get these at this price??? I searched everywhere, Ebay, Gumtree, anywhere that I can think if, yet found none. I can make so much by selling it on the Chinese second hand market.
Its the media that making a fuss about it, in reality there might just be some crazy rich spoiled brat who sell their phones(that happens to be Huawei) at very low prices. This happen all the time not just for Huawei, cause some rich kid often upgrade their phone 2-3x a year. Now that there's some rumour that Huawei might cease to exist then these kind of people would just sell it with crazy low prices and move on to their new phones.
Rip off much?
Find me a bargain?
you found the right website.. welcome
These phones will get future updates from Huawei directly.
It will be converted to Huawei's own OS
I'm more worried abt what apps they will offer. do u know any enthusiastic Huawei OS developer?
All android apps are fully compatible with the new Huawei OS, and not only that, if developers choose to recompile the source code using Huawei's compiler, the performance will be much faster
Base on what? made up information?
@kml22: not made up, Huawei said it
Recently Huawei overthrew Apple and became #2 company. I am in the group that believes the ban is absolutely political and will end once backdoor negotiations between the 2 countries conclude.
I have a Honor 6x using from 2 years and it still runs as it ran on Day1. Recently also got the P30 from JB deal for my wife who ditched her iphone and absolutely love it.
For those who are risk averse, yes the safe bet is to wait and watch.
Can we just have a forum page for all this future proof comments instead of appear on each single Huawei bargain pages. Or might as well banned them from Ozb just like US.
Typical uncompetitive / greedy Australian sellers . Do yourself a great favour by Going to Singapore for holiday and get your self Huawei p30 pro for under $1000 or even less .
not really a bargain after factoring in airfares and hotels?
Well , You used the money saved to get air fares hotels holiday and buy 2 or more phones to resell in oz just like the greedy retailers :)
but its falling faster than Sydney house prices.
I recently returned my P30 for a full refund because of this dipshit move by Trump. Got myself a Pixel 3 for about $570 from the recent JbHifi trade in deal.
I honestly think P30 was the better phone, by a HUGE margin. Better camera, better screen, better gestures, much better battery life and better specs. Already missing the P30. The Pixel is like some hipster shit in comparison.
