    I'm wondering, with all the negative press about security, if anyone was tempted?

    One of my deputies has a p20 Pro phone, and reckons it's excellent.

    Especially the camera, and battery life.

    I can't imagine the Chinese would be very interested in him though.

    People don't really care about data privacy, yet. I'd have thought there was enough choice on the market that people would avoid, but they have taken 2nd place from Apple in terms of market share.

    Getting a bit conspiratorial here, but as I am no expert on mobile phone security, one has to wonder if the eavesdropping accusations are false news, designed to protect the likes of Apple? Hmmmm.

    Don't see anyone pointing the finger at Samsung or LG though.

    My mate at work just got a P30 Pro, much better camera than my iPhone but Jim Jong Un get a copy of every picture he takes.

    Me neither and I need a new one.

    Of course the cabinet are rather upset that it has been leaked that the dumb one at the top has approved the use of Huawei equipment (even though she probably has not got a clue about it).
    They would rather ponificate about the leak than explain the decision.

    I got a "cheap" Chinese phone, cost about £100, does all I need & more, had it over a year now, but I won't use the fingerprint scanner.
