Re: They could always
So you are saying Huawei don't install bloat? You're saying that the woeful EMUI that Chinese manufacturers choose is better than Samsung UI?
It may have been true that Samsung was indeed famous for bloatware and a poor interface (TouchWiz) but those days are long gone. On my Note 9 I had to actively go looking to download the Internet browser (which I prefer to Chrome) as it wasn't installed for example.
I love Huawei hardware but EMUI and all the Chinese software they force you to use always turns me away and I am then heading back to Samsung.
I grant you that Samsung need to reduce the price of their devices but general decline in Smartphone sales is happening to ALL manufacturers and it's simply an over saturated market.
