Be super diligent with your security on the Huawei. They are well-known for inserting backdoors that the Chinese state uses for numerous unknown purposes.

I used to work in the field of internet network security, and the exploits and backdoors - all the way down to the chip level - in Huawei devices were legion. And we were discovering more all the time.

And that was four years ago...

While I most definitely heed your warning, I'm jumping ship from one Chinese brand to the other. So I'm used to this:

Huawei is supposedly worse, but I doubt it is much worse. I have all but given up on feeling secure about what I do on my phone - it's not a "lesser of two evils" kinda thing, it's an "everyone is a devil" kinda thing.
