The Huawei Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro are both amazing smartphones as both smartphones have introduced the powerful Kirin 990 processor along with the more powerful Leica cameras inside that has the top scores at DxOMark and they have an amazing hardware features inside and in case you didn’t know, the smartphone series is also taking advantage of their own Huawei Mobile Services instead of Google Mobile Services.
So if you’re curious about HMS or what it can offer, here some reasons why I think Huawei Mobile Services is pretty exciting for everyone.
1. It’s growing really fast
One of the main reasons why the Huawei AppGallery is growing really fast is because Huawei has been actively supporting the developers to flock to the AppGallery and develop apps based on the Huawei Mobile Services Core.
A few months ago, we’ve attended the Huawei Developer’s day conference in Singapore and we were amazed at the API and what Huawei Mobile Services can offer. It’s both beneficial for the developers and also the consumers. Oh and for developers? they’re only getting 15% cut from every purchase unlike Google at 30%
2. The basic games and apps are here
If you remember Blackberry OS and Nokia’s own Android OS a few years ago, one of the problems they encountered is the lack of apps but unlike those manufacturers, Huawei has managed to bring the most basic applications to HMS. So what are those applications? Well, we have here PayMaya, BDO, Grab, Lazada, Shopee, and many more.
When it comes to games, you can now download Asphalt 9 and even Epic games so you can install Fortnite on your smartphone and yes, it’s still growing.
3. It’s part of the large Huawei ecosystem
2020 is the start of the 5G era and Huawei has been beefing up its ecosystem by introducing the 1+8+N strategy. Basically, the 1 refers to your smartphones while the 8 refers to your PC, wearables, headphones and many more while N refers to the smart homes, IoT products, smart products and many more.
With the smartphone as an important part of this strategy, it’s really essential for Huawei to start building their apps and core with the smartphone and the AppGallery is the forefront for future apps for Huawei devices.
4. You can still access the web version of apps
In case your apps aren’t available on the AppGallery, it’s pretty easy to install it on the device as you only need to go to their website and you can instantly add a shortcut to your homescreen. With this, you’ll now be able to install applications and games that aren’t available on the AppGallery.
In my case, I use APK Pure and also APK Monk for my Huawei Mate 30 Pro. No Google Play? No problem!
5. It’s currently the third biggest app store
Recently, Huawei has announced that the AppGallery is the world’s #3 app store which means that the AppGallery is now behind Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. In just a few months, Huawei has definitely made a mark in the industry with the rapid rise of apps on the AppGallery.
So if you’re buying the Huawei Mate 30 series or the Huawei Y7P, you don’t have to worry that much since you’ll still be able to install a lot of apps on the smartphone.
