Realme is a good brand

Vivo, Oppo, Realme, Xiaomi: what's behind the Chinese brands?

You've probably heard the name Huawei by now. Smartphones, tablets and smartwatches from the brand can also be found in almost every electronics store and on the Internet in this country. But not only that, because Huawei is also involved in the cellular network in Germany. Together with Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica, the company has been working on expanding the LTE network for years. Huawei is also playing a bigger role in 5G, even if it is controversial. Safety concerns arise again and again. Great Britain and the USA take an even more critical view of this.

The United Kingdom wants to exclude Huawei and its subsidiaries from expanding the local 5G network. The US imposed sanctions a long time ago under the presidency of Donald Trump and blocked Huawei's access to American products. This applies to components and the Android operating system, for example. Newer smartphones from the brand can use its base because it is available as open source software, but cannot access Google services.

Huawei stands as a sign of differences between the western world and China. There is too much fear in Europe and America that data will unintentionally fall into the hands of the government in the capital Beijing. The reason for this is the proximity of these to the large companies in the country. Due to the large amount of personal data as well as the sensors and cameras in smartphones, the concerns are of course particularly great.

Huawei is one of the few manufacturers from China that has long since arrived in the West. The company has had a branch in Germany since 2001. There are now 18 of them spread across the country. Huawei also promotes cultural exchange between Germany and China. By the way, Huawei is headquartered in Shenzhen, the technology capital of China. It was founded in 1987, making the manufacturer one of the older technology brands from the "Middle Kingdom".
