While not for everyone, if you don’t need Google services, or don’t mind getting your hands dirty, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is one of the best smartphones currently available, and is simply stunning to look at and use.
I got a Mate 30 Pro to try out HMS and ended up doing a review on it. I agree completely - you need to be competent with Android, it will scare a fair few people away having to unlock third-party apps or use a different app for YouTube.
Which is unfortunate. The hardware, aside from the lack of volume rocker, is stellar. The camera, while not getting the jump in quality/features you get with P-Series, is still top-tier.
