So, if i have to said im looking to buy honor. Does the Malaysian set still receive Google Play service? Honor seem much cheaper and at low cost from other brand, plus im looking at least 4gb ram, to satisfy my need for gaming. Should i buy it or not? In case they(Huawei and Google) decide every China brand no longer receive update from either of them..

Lastly, please recommend other brand that has same price as Honor, heard this brand called Meizu? Is it any good?

Honor and Huawei are different brands. So yeah~Honor supports Google Services which is a plus.

But if there is any problem, surely Honor will have a backup plan.

Thanks, yes, I managed to install the GMS on my Honor and can use it now more or less like a normal cellphone.

Anyway, Huawei and Honar are dead now, killed by Donald Trump

I want to warn everybody to buy a Honor or Huawei cellphone in and from China now. I know they are much cheaper than here, but even in China nowadays they are unusable because they block everything from Google.

You cannot install Google Playstore or any other service that is needed to run Android properly.

I lived in China for some month before and came back home with my Honor 8x from there. Before leaving China I went to the Huawei Service Center to get the Malaysia Android version from them. They were friendly, but refused, because of Chinese Goverment regulations I only can do this at the Huawei service center in my home country. Unfortunately the Huawei Service Center in Ipoh probably is the worst in the world. They just want to make money with you and are unfriendly and unhelpful.

They ask me to pay about RM 1800 (!!!) to get the system changed to Malaysia bangwall.gif

I wish I never would have changed from Samsung to Honor. Yes, Honor is much cheaper, but Samsung is a worldwide brand with woldwide accurate service.

If anyone has a tutorial how to install Google Services, Playstore ... on my useless 8x brick, please let me know.

seriously if you care about Google Play Services just don't buy Huawei. Though you could try MicroG to emulate GMS if you want
