I'm asking because 2 different YouTuber reviewers reply with opposite answers:

Izami Gadget replies: Hi. Yes. Can install it with no problem. Same as another china phone that comes without GMS. can sideload the play store APK without a problem

Elsegood Michael replies: Not on the Chinese version no. You’ll have to wait to see if it’s released globally in the next couple of months

yeah. i hate this. its unbelievable how bad reviewers are these days.

from what I understand:
yes. you can side-load the Play Store. i've seen the Play Store installed on the phone.

unfortunately, you can download Gmail for example, but you cannot sign-into Gmail once you open the app.
thats why people are saying no Google Services.

thats how i understand it, hope it clears some things up for you.


also, you should look up all the ways to get Google Services on Huawei and Honor devices.
search "huawei honor google services".

people with these devices without Google Services shipped have been using a workaround for at least 2 years now.
some real capable people out there.

Well my Honor Magic V has arrived.
Who has some ideas of how to install Google services?
I've tried the Huawei mate x2 way but can't get the replacement backup.apk to install
If you have any questions about the phone I'll be happy to help

Question where did you purchase your Honor Magic V from? I am looking to purchase mine soon and looking for reputable buyer and faster shipping.

Have you tried these two versions below. I remember when I had my Mate X2 I had installed it using the below methods.
GMS Tutorial-
and Google Play Protect -

Yes I used the same on my mate x2. Using the above method you can install from the backup but when opening the G (lzplay.helper) it doesn't install gms just error.

I purchased mine from Trinity Electronics Hong Kong. I've used them a couple of times and they are very quick at replying and sending. Like any 3rd party seller there is a mark up on price. I don't mind paying a bit extra for peace of mind.

    I dont take a lot of pictures honestly so that might be part of it. I like having the camera on the big screen and it is also good quality. I like the curve on the right side of the outside screen. The chinese software at least lets me switch default apps besides the launcher, I dont think the mate x2 let me do that but I might be wrong.. It seems like a more polished mate x2 in my opinion but the main camera is not something I considered...
