Huawei Mate 30: Living without Google is so easy and so much better…

My Huawei Mate 30 came with Google installed (by someone). I immediately put the phone back to original and set it up as Huawei wanted it. I had bought it used, actually hardly used, but still a good deal because of that. I have been Google free for awhile now and it has been easy to do…

Huawei Mate 30 is simply perfect and unbelievable…

I use Huawei Mail app and find it works perfect, I use “Here We Go” Maps and it works perfect, Viber to talk with Svetochka works perfect, Duck Duck Go as search works perfect, Huawei Gallery perfect, Geo Tracker to map my walks perfect, in fact I have found as good if not better apps to replace any and everything Google…

The Google I do use is by browser….Gmail works just fine in my Duck Duck Go browser, YouTube works great in the same browser and other than that, I do not use Google, except an occasional search to expand my desire to see how bad Google twists the data and after using Duck Duck Go search, Google definitely targets your search to meet their needs and agendas, not yours…

People who just act like being without Google is the end of the world:

I ask, “Why?” and I get stared at like I have devil horns growing out of my head. The same way I get stared at when I ask, “Why?” about the iPhone….I also ask, “Why?” about Android and many other things if you know me well enough. I think Android is great, but when Huawei gets “HarmonyOS” in full swing….I will switch to that and expand my knowledge…

So having lived exclusively with no Google apps on my phone, I can say that the alternatives are at least as good, if not better than Google Apps. I would go as far to say that without Google Apps, your battery life is unbelievable and I am able to go days without charging the phone…

Non of this phone home all the time…

The Huawei Mate 30:

Is without a doubt in my mind the best phone I have ever had. Probably the main thing about it is the signal strength. I live in a very remote area of Russia. I watch other people with their phones and they walk around and stand in the middle of someone’s yard as they try to access e-mail and such. Using an iPhone here in the Tiny Russian Village is really Russian Roulette. My Huawei gets 3 mbs speed as it sits on the shelf in the village home as a modem. I can walk deep into the woods and never loose internet and or signal to make a phone call…

I had to get use to city people walking out here to the Village Monastery and finding them standing near my fence and turning in circles and holding their iPhone in the air to try to get a signal. They were simply lost as to where they were at and I would find them in the backyard trying to get a signal….One woman walk right into the fence as she held her phone as high in the air as she can and trying to talk to someone. “Why?”…

I track my data usage and the phone does not phone home all the time. I leave data on, GPS on constantly and allow e-mail and Viber to constantly notify me. It simply does not try to do any phone home and tell the world what I am doing all the time…

The phone does not allow apps to do anything I do not allow myself. It runs clean and my Huawei Mate 30 is the Chinese version. Global versions do not follow the same rules it seems. Global versions of Android ROM’s are made to work with different criteria and such…

I am thankful that we have smartphones that are being disconnected from Google. I may be in the minority, yet, it is another one of those freedoms and it is my choice. A Google phone is never Google free, even if you delete apps. Yet a phone that is made Google free from the beginning is like a fresh breath of air…

Google sends me e-mails everyday:

E-mails that ask me to sign in, add pictures, where am I, lots of e-mails. They try to tell me how wonderful my past images are doing, how much I am missed and whatnot’s constantly….I even get, these kinda, You Know Someone is using your account in Moscow, Russia…

Yes, I know….Sveta loves her Google! 😉
