JustSomeRandomgGuy, 7 hours agoI wish it was really just bs, but it is now. As I said, you can google yourself, but … moreOne more thing, I’m not going to bother you with a multi-kernel system that uses Harmony, etc. If Harmony is indeed Android, how is it that it is faster, lighter, uses less RAM and uses less battery than Android?
How come it has its native apps and programming language called HarmonyOS Markup Language (HML) when it comes to Android? I would go on, but I find it pretty pointless.

This is total cop, I wonder if you know that or just playing a parrot. Do your research before you speak. The AOSP layer does not mean that the architecture of the operating system is the same as that of Android. The only thing you got right is that they are both Linux based.

HarmonyOS – Skin: Android – OS
Adul Al Salami Kebab, 10 hours agoAndroid is open source code, not a rip off or clone. Harmony is a rebranded Android, just … moreyou obviously don’t know what you’re talking about. you are clueless. You are confusing Android skins and operating system. do you want to know the difference? Here are some examples of legitimate mobile operating systems:
Tizen operating system: OneUI skin
iOS operating system: ColorOS skin
BadaOS operating system: OriginOS skin
HarmonyOS Skin: Android Skin
All of the examples you gave are just skins of Android and the same goes for HarmonyOS. it’s a new OS just like ColorOS, OxygenOS, and other Android skins that pretend to be a new OS by having the word “OS” at the end of their name, but that’s all they can do because they are only that are; Skins
Bottom line is, HarmonyOS is nothing more than an Android skin, no matter how you will say Huawei fanboys / Google haters. Don’t trust me, google it yourself and see how Huawei has removed all traces of the word “Android” in the HarmonyOS source code
HarmonyOS is just a short way of saying, “This is EMUI which is completely Android-based, but by a different name, in short, it’s still Android” OS
let’s be real here. the reason some people “enjoy” this is because they hate Google. how ironic that China is one of the most guilty countries for invasion of privacy. I will be happy to use my GMS with Android phone, thank you very much

Looks like the number “90 million” is being hyped.
But still, if Huawei gives the real data, maybe the number of users is still in the millions, and that’s great.
Hope HarmonyOS gets bigger so the US can’t freely ban everything again.

that’s 691,200 new users per day
The user interface is one thing
The availability of apps is something else entirely
In the past, a lot of user interfaces have failed due to a lack of apps

Just download Game and Play and think the developers are working for free. Gms makes developers happy, that’s the secret. The secret also works for the Apple App Store. The problem is, if your phone already has gms, would you install hms? And would it be attractive enough to get developers to switch from gms or maintain the app for a new store?

Stop being unprofessional ok. If you’ve tested the operating system and found it wasn’t working well, I would understand your points.
The reviewers of the operating system say it runs smoothly with apps!
