The Huawei P40 Pro is here and it’s moulding adult to be a severely considerable phone interjection to an sparkling camera array, considerable quick charging and singular design.
Of course, one of a hits opposite a phone is that it lacks a required services to get a Google Play Store, however there’s a accessible pretence that’ll let we send over most of your favourite apps from another Android phone – and it usually takes a few minutes.
With a Phone Clone app (available on a Play Store and preinstalled of Huawei devices) we can send over many of your Android apps. Simply download a app on your comparison device, bond it to your new P40 (or Mate 30 Pro) and start a transfer.
I demoed this by wirelessly transferring all a 78 apps over from my Pixel 4 XL to a new Huawei P40 Pro and it took reduction than 20 minutes. Once a send was finish we had a P40 Pro full of my bland apps: Pocketcasts, Prime Video, Disney Plus, Spotify and Sonos. And this was all though downloading APKs or sideloading other app stores.

The complement isn’t ideal though, and we will find some gaps. Google apps weren’t eliminated over (even when something like Google Pay is sideloaded it doesn’t work) for apparent reasons, and both Netflix and Uber refused to pierce across.
