Huawei Mate 10 Pro receives update to kill "Google bug"

Yesterday, during the Huawei event that introduced officially the Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro to the world, some of the attendees noticed that the Mate 10 Pro review samples handed out by the manufacturer were running hot, and the 4000mAh battery was draining too fast. Huawei blamed it on Google, calling it the "Google bug." Google said that it was working feverishly to fix the problem.

The good news is that the doctor has written the prescription and at the tender age of < 1 day, the Mate 10 Pro has received an update that exterminates the bug, at least according to Huawei. The latter has been working on pushing out updates faster, something that it will need to do if it wants to surpass Samsung as the top smartphone manufacturer in the world. At last count, Huawei has overtaken Apple for the number two spot.

In theory, this immediate response would be the ideal way that bugs get fixed. In this case, a problem occurred and a patch was quickly sent out. In this case though, both Huawei and Google had a spotlight on them, and both knew that these review units would be used for, well, reviews. Nothing spurs a company into action faster than the threat of seeing something bad about it forever memorialized in print.
