Huawei plans to deliver a flagship phone in the U.S. later this year

Yu has high hopes for Huawei. Back in February, he predicted that Huawei will have the largest market share in the global smartphone market in five years. That would require the company to top current leader Samsung, and runner-up Apple. According to IDC, during the fourth quarter of last year Samsung held 21% of the market with Apple not far behind at 19%. Huawei's share was 8.1%.
Last year, Huawei produced its first Nexus device, the Nexus 6P. The stock Android phone was well received in the U.S., perhaps paving the way for Huawei's decision to invade the U.S. smartphone market. In Europe, Huawei started putting its branded phones inside carrier's stores by paying for in-store promotion. As a result, Huawei's shipments in Western Europe rose 51% last year, beating Apple's 15% growth and Samsung's 2%. This might be a strategy Huawei employs in the states.

I've had my P8 Lite since last May and it received 6 updates, including a stagefright patch. It's currently on the beta phase for Marshmallow and an EMUI update. I think they're actually good. Better than most actually.

You do realize, without updates, your phone(or for that matter any device connected to the internet or fallen into the wrong hands) your phones security vulnerabilities go unpatched and then can be exploited for nefarious purposes, right? Timely updates are vital to security. This is why the home edition of Windows 10 does not allow users to delay or ignore updates, its for their own good and for the good of every other windows user. If Google, android manufacturers and carriers adopted the same attitude, then Android would be more secure(or less vulnerable, however you prefer to phrase it).

Ok, after struggling through your post what you're saying makes no sense. Today's phones are released with issues and bugs. Would you want a phone with problems that you'd have to keep for one or more years. If something is broken, I want an update to fix it. I had the horrible Galaxy S (Epic) for two years and they NEVER fixed the GPS or the laggy touchwiz UI. OF COURSE I WANT UPDATES TO FIX BROKEN CRAP.

I've had a Mate2 for almost 2 years. I love it! The price & battery were the 2 main selling features. I won't be buying the P9max though. WAY TOO EXPENSIVE, for a PHONE. Once the 9 is released, the Mate8 price will probably drop, which is what I'm leaning to. Paying 700-900 for a PHONE, no matter how overpowered, is nuts in my mind.
