    I came across this little gem yesterday and I went to comment on the thread but it seems to have disappeared?? I cant remember the whole gist of the post but I do remember it saying that he has a friend who works for Huawei who recommended a couple of things, the guy kindly made this pic and posted it on here! I thought id repost it as I found it quite useful!!

    Especially as some people have concerns over Google Photos, Keep and especially YouTube. YouTube has a lite version you can download which works kinda basic but fine but then I found [redacted by Mod], this is something ive been playing with for the last few days as i had pinned youtube.com to my homepage.

    Handy Google app alternatives! A must for any Huawei users!-one-pager-ct.jpg

    When it comes to browsers, I prefer Firefox (especially the new Firefox Preview) over Chrome and Huawei Browser. If you don't have access to Google Play, it's available for download from their website (firefox.com), and the new Firefox Preview can be downloaded from APKMirror. It has built-in ad-blocking, advanced sync features and add-on support.

    Another Google Drive alternative is Microsoft's OneDrive. I prefer it because it has great integration with Windows and Office.

    FYI, we don't allow discussions about Vanced, since that violates YouTube's terms of service.

    Nothing to be honest I did wonder how I would access my google photos as I don't like bringing my photos across when I set up a new phone, with having a previous GMS device all my photos are backed up on photos, I went on googles website ad accessed my photos via the browser pinned it to the home page and download the photos I need. Simply no different to having an app, I can even upload to google photos via to it aswell, but in all honestly ive been using the Huawei cloud
