Re: It's a marketing coup
I've been impressed in the past with Huawei phones (I've had one, my wife has one, my son had one and now has a Honor).
However, it was only recently that I discovered that in later version of EMUI. they've intentionally removed the option to install apps to the SD card. This was found out the hard way when Mrs B was no longer able to install anything without deleting other apps first.
There's no workaround short of rooting, and by doing that you probably lose access to online banking from the phone.
I was considering a Honor for my next handset, but unfortunately this restriction has put me right off.
