Google services definitely play a huge part in the Android ecosystem. But that doesn’t mean that there are no alternatives available in the market.
Because of Huawei’s recent issues with the US government, a lot of their partnerships with American companies (like Google) were affected as well. Fortunately, the Chinese conglomerate has a vast portfolio of services which they can offer in times like this.
Among the most important integrations with Android is the ability to upload, sync, backup, and recover files with Google’s services . Users can also sync their calendars, contacts, notes, and more. Going without it is like stripping one of Android’s most useful features. Luckily, Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) has their own implementation of these services all gathered together under Huawei Mobile Cloud.
In a nutshell, Huawei Mobile Cloud is direct alternative to Google’s offering. It can also upload, backup, recover, and sync photos, videos, and other files you might need to your online storage account. It provides seamless access to your files wherever you are and across all your devices — even on your PC.
Huawei users are given 5GB of free storage, but they can also opt to pay for the premium subscriptions in case they need more. Plans start at 50GB and go all the way up to 2TB. With Google, consumers get 15GB for free.
In order to lure consumers in, Huawei is currently offering up to 50% discount — making it look incredibly cheap since competitors’ services cost almost twice as much for the same amount of storage.
