    This is going to affect US companies as well in the long run, as manufacturers around the world will become cautious doing business with U.S Companies in future as they lose trust and fear the same can be happened with anyone anytime. So chances are there the world will now turn towards self dependence in all technologies.

    China's rise of economy helps U.S. quick recovery since 2009's Wall Street meltdown; they bought a lot of U.S. goods and paid a lot of U.S. patents. Trump lied and slandered Chinese government as thief, just because a few lazy researchers copied U.S.'s just like any other nations does. HuaWei owns many U.S. patents, which are difficult to get, and several U.S. companies borrow these patents. Now HuaWei ask them to pay royalties.

    the best thing for them to do is innovate a new tech product that is nothing like phones or computers, something we can't imagine. Or maybe if they don't want to do that, just move to a new industry. I don't think Huawei will go bankrupt at all because they are a Chinese company and the Chinese are very smart imo. They most likely have a robust backup plan or they can come up with a great one now.

    Huawei may be the only company that not only treated unfairly by the Chinese government, but also unfairly treated by the US government. The most funny thing is that, use opposite reason, one is because it is not a Chinese state-owned enterprise (a private enterprise in the market), and the other is because it is a Chinese enterprise ( state-owned enterprise or even a military enterprise or spy enterprise)..

This goes back to the 70s when americans were shunning american made cars for better made foreign cars. If the product is better and cheaper then why not buy it??? I dont care too much for the terms "american made" or "owned by this ethnic group so buy here only" wtf... I work hard for my money and I pay for what I want!!! I have a android phone and my wife th iphone. I prefer the android cause of the ease for my usage. Im not a fan boy but either phone I have been able to use. The Huawei phones are interesting and I have no knowlegde of how they work but this like you say takes it off the table as an option!!!

Fund, create and arm numerous rebel groups to overthrow foreign government entities, only to have said rebel groups turn into full-fledged terrorist organisations, hell-bent on the complete and utter annihilation of humanity?
      China is *NOTHING* like the US, and it would be inane to suggest otherwise.

    Since Huaweis rising success, and trumps angst and biggoted hate towards Chinese trade affairs, it seems almost purposely planned out that trump has been pressing this ban and for no good reason either. Google, Facebook, Apple and many other MAJOR worldwide US companies have been forcefully government tracking Americans for years, ESPECIALLY after the Bush administration forced phone tapping and all proprietor networks and tech tracking be immediately out into effect right after 9/11 happened, and now all of sudden, trump and his administration, who have already been widely proved and believed to have even more conspirators between his own election being rigged by Russia and Facebook propaganda, wants to bitch and gets upset about not getting everything he wants from China and other countries and decides to ban them out of pure what a hypocrisy of a country the US is lmao.

      @Binay Dhawa - How is that an easy fix? How would they stop people from creating fake news? How could they even determine if its fake or not at the time of upload?

    It may hurt Huawei, but this will also hurt people like Google. If Huawei is forced to create alternatives to Android then it will start to put them into competition with Google, which may not be competitive in the USA but could easily end up effectively competing with Android in non-US markets (even potentially blocking Android in China).

    Funny how as a tech video site, you are more concerned about the diversity of tech in this country and seem to totally discount the security issues posed by their company. Don't forget, this company and ZTE are located in a totally communist country where nobody does anything of consequence without obtaining the government's permission. It's pretty clear to objective observers that China is in the middle of a massive expansion of its military in an attempt to broaden its influence and power in Southeast Asia and beyond.
