Huawei P40 Pro 5G 256GB $897 + Delivery ($0 Metro Delivery) @ Officeworks

200

I am looking for a good quality camera phone with ultra-wide lens and this came up. Unfortunately doesnt suit me because of no google play, but last deal was $100 more expensive and very popular.
You are welcome.

    Why not buy a Pixel 5 for $800 from Google Play instead? Great camera, and you get updates and access to Google Play store etc.

      I got the pixel 5. I don't understand why people say it has a great camera…

    •  

      Im actually more inclined to get Pixel 4a 5g instead.
      But very hard to justify buying a lesser phone just to get the ultra-wide lens. I have Pixel 4xl atm.

      The Snapdragon 765 is a straightup deal breaker on an $800 phone in 2021

      Pixels have good AI to make up for mediocre cameras.

      Are all Huawei phones blocked from accessing the Google Play Store due to the US government's Huawei Ban?

      Maybe that's why Officeworks are selling them cheap?

    Posted this a short while ago, but someone else pointed out that there is no stock available online. Have not check instore since I have no intested in Huawei due to it being Huawei. Can anyone confirm that you can get this from in-store?

    •  

      It lets me add to the cart, i took it as a sign of it being in stock.

      •  

        Not in my case. It said "Unavailable Online" for me. When select a store, it said "Online Only".

        •  

          Did anyone else encounter this?
          I just tried again and was able to add to cart

      In Victoria, there is one left in Wangaratta. No interest in checking all states as I don't wish to support the CCP.

          Actually your defence of the CCP is ignorant; lacking knowledge or general awareness. Not wanting to support a regime that's pro-cultural genocide, anti-human rights, and anti-free speech is a very altruistic position to take.

          If you're in China, and can't know better, so don't know better, then sure. But if you're overseas? C'mon, how shorta noggin cells must ya be?

            @incipient: No, you sound ignorant. Huawei hires a lot of Australian and Chinese (in China). Just because you don’t like CCP so are you saying all chinese should suffer and punished as a consequence? Did you stop buying US company’s product when Trump was in administration?

              @Tila: This isn't accurate anymore, staff downsizing from 1,200 to 200 and it's most likely less now as there was further planned lay offs. Cancelled sponsorship contracts abruptly. Also we do not know the demographic information of the Australian office so we cannot make a judgement on their hiring practices as it would be futile (Age, Gender, Nationality etc.). The difference is the US companies products are operating in a market economy, in contrast China is a socialist market economy.

        haven't you been inadvertently supporting them anyway?
        I'm just throwing it out there, how do you know if the groceries you bought aren't from a source whose tools or equipment has Chinese-made parts in them?

        • +5 votes

          Even the clothes you are wearing…the zip, buttons, thread, label….at least one of those would have come from China. So many components in the phone, the computer…it's unavoidable.

          Agree, it's almost impossible to live without indirectly supporting the CCP. However this Company is owned by a member and has direct links to the PLA. Moreover, there are plenty of alternatives in the price range. How about making a small protest for our wine, barley and coal producers?

          •  

            @mostlygordon: But i don't think huawei has ever tried to hide their owners history. Or do you mean someones whos literally been in the army in the past?

            i mean robert downey jr was convicted for possession of cocaine heroin and a weapon in the past, would you also be inclined to boycott movies he's starring in because you'll be supporting drug possession and weapon ownership?

              @ashtrayc2c: I don't see how Robert Downey Jr ever hurt The Australian economy or our wine, barley and coal producers. Google will turn up plenty of information for you on links between Ren Zhengfei / Huawei and the CCP / PLA.

                @mostlygordon: dont get me wrong just going by your logic from your initial statement. so would that mean you support drug possession and weapon ownership then? lol.
                Google also has results of the company complying to the release of all their documents even their coding when requested under the jurisdictions of the countries they've operated in.

                  @ashtrayc2c: It is usually just wasting of time to argue with somebody have completely different ideas about this world. I would suggest you just save your time to enjoy your life. Considering the population of this world, it is normal to have somebody with ridiculous opinions from your point of view. Unfortunately, China never has any chance to build up a positive image in English world. After years of purposely education and publicity, in western countries especially English world, Chinese government (also include Chinese state owned companies, or any Chinese companies with owners or even just substantial shareholders that used to work for Chinese government) is basically equal to THE SIN. Will you try to persuade somebody that Judas is not guilty?

                    @qqqqqwer: to be honest, i dont really care what they think. i just find it entertaining to point out the irony in their statements, and that the brainwashing is happening on our side of the fence too. end of the day its just a popularity contest anyway.

                    i just think its quite funny how most of the huawei deals attract these type of comments, whereas the other Chinese branded phone deals barely have anything negative at all even when most of those companies also have some form of government association. the reason why this is the case or why companies in china want government ties these guys can go figure that out for themselves. though i can pretty much guarantee google wont have the answers. lol.

                      @ashtrayc2c: While when the US talked about Huawei, it is a threat of national security. However, if Huawei only assembles mobile phones without patents on any core components or telecommunication like other Chinese phone manufacturers, Huawei won't have the troubles today. Or if Huawei can be listed in share market and wall street has chances to control shareholding substantially, Huawei may become another Alstom, still existing but being purchased by American companies. Will English medias tend to talk about this? No, they only keep telling the public that Mr Ren Zhengfei who retired from Chinese army, must have close ties to CCP and thus Huawei is not safe either. Even though Huawei is happy to release all codes of their equipment and receive any assessment by authorities anywhere. No one cares. If we talk about brain wash and manipulating public, CCP should really systemically learn from western countries. CCP's propaganda department did such a shit job that most of time cannot even convince me.

    I had the Mate 20 Pro, just traded it in and got a Samsung S20 FE. The Huawei camera from three years ago blows the Samsung out of the water, but the screen on the S20 is considerably better with the high refresh rate. That being said, I miss my Huawei for the camera, but I won't be buying a new one with the Google restrictions in place.

      What $ did you get trade in?

      •  

        Not much, about $300 from memory. Traded it in to Optus and got credit off my bill. Not much less than what I would've got selling it privately as Huawei has gone into the toilet value wise since the Google ban.

    Don't get all the people saying CCP, unless your some high up security expert, your just not that important. Would get this hands down if google play came naturally.

      It's not about you. It's about what you contribute to the censorship engine of an oppressive regime, and what life and liberties that takes from others. (wechat happens to be a trivially testable platform).

          Well, regarding the price of fish, the price of rock lobsters has plummeted in price since China imposed trade restrictions on us and brought the industry to its knees.
          https://www.abc.net.au/article/13174912

          Buy a cheaper a Samsung, Google or Apple phone and use the saved cash to buy a rock lobster :-) Wash it down with an Aussie bottle of wine and support that industry too.

            @scottishdave: I am afriad it is always about cost and benefit

            As for crayfish / lobster, "the industry" enjoyed the revenue during their golden export time to China.

            Local customers "suffered" retail price for about $180 per kilo (or higher). I wasn't 100% sure the industry cares about us at that time

            Then the ban started, plenty stories how "the industry" controlled production to maintain local retrail price but it didn't work for long, price crashed

            Looking at how hatred was diluted and intensified by media and gov at different times can be very inspiring….. "oh, that is how it works"

            After all, I appreciated the cheap crayfish during the sub $60 per kg time………

    Come on people, a bit of love for the Huawei. Sure, they aren't suitable for security sensitive use as they are questionably backdoored, and they don't have Play Store access etc… but the poor Uyghurs have been slaving away making them for you…

      • +3 votes

        Thanks for sharing. By reading this report, I realize how a great job that CCP has done on helping Uyghurs to build up skills and increasing family income. I would say it is a much better way than that the US troops along with Australian soldiers have done in Afghanistan and Iraq.

        Instead of leaving Uyghurs in extreme poverty and desperation, getting brain washed by extreme Islamic thought, and eventually becoming suicide bombers, these Uyghurs can start to work, receive wages, support their kids to schools, save up to buy houses, just like everyone else, you and me. They may need to work very hard with pretty low wage at the beginning due to limited skills they have, but it is a good beginning to enter the normal life track like the majorities in a normal country. They may receive a bit limit on their activities after hour at the beginning, but that is what you have to afford until you can demonstrate that you are not a threat to the rest of the public.

        Which way is better? Becoming terrorists and then slaughtered by American troops or starting to have normal life, change yourself and support your family? Some people here can never understand what the life can be when you are struggling to buy food for the next meal and at the same time donate every coin to those who try to fool you to throw your life to Jihad. Some people here judge that the workers work long hour with low wage but they do not know how the income can be incredibly low if they only farm in the desert. They never know the reality that how a huge number of Uyghurs desperate to overcome language barrier, win a chance to work and build up skills. All they believe is that Uyghurs should live as was to enjoy religion (terrorism) freedom, African should live as was to maintain ecological balance, Chinese should live as was to provide cheap labor while Australians should live as was with cars, houses, medical service and 60k dollars a year. That is how the world looks like after WWII, and it should be like that for ever.
