Looking back, I'm not sure what got into me when I bought the P40 Pro+, although there are some great things about it.
The cameras are excellent, and I'd rate them way higher than Apple's offerings. The overall feel is nice, and the ceramic back is worthy of a flagship. Overall, the hardware is where this phone shines.
On the software side, I don't even care about the lack of Google stuff so much, m apart from access to the Play Store, which does make life more difficult and less secure. What really gets me, though, is just that: security issues. I've never owned a phone that is so greedy with permissions and sending data to servers all over the globe. I installed a firewall and haven't dared use the phone as my daily device since.
If anyone wants more info on this, I'll be happy to share.
ive got the p40 pro and was thinking of upgrading to the plus for the extra spec in camera ,storage and performance. after everything started kicking off in the US and UK i did my research and found that they have a certification in data security (CSA Star i think), plus the guy in my local Store told me about the 4 different checks they do on the AppGallery apps i just tend to now watch the apps i download.
here are the links i found:
Thanks for the links! I'm not so worried about the apps so much as just the amount of data trying to leave my phone to a variety of IP addresses. Might be an Android thing, though - I've been in the Apple ecosystem since the Galaxy S3 so I'm readjusting. The Pro+ really ticks a lot of boxes for me, now I've just got to secure it properly.
