Huawei App Store :
Because Huawei is not using any Google apps like play store, google search and etc… What comes in Mind is how to load the apps?
Huawei has a solution. Huawei has used the Huawei App Gallery App
which comes with all the major Apps available on the play store and other Apps stores. Huawei has recently invested dollars in the Apps development for their devices and App store. Huawei is helping out the App developers to design the apps for their devices. There is the only issue In Huawei is the security.
There are many reasons to not trust the huawei when we see the cases against the company. Bu, I think they will not leave a point in security in coming days. Huawei is the worlds 2nd largest smartphone company and they don’t want to loose this position.
