If you’re a smartphone maker whose brand starts with the letter ‘H,’ you’ve only known pain and suffering this week. You were treated as an outpost of the Chinese cybersecurity threat and have committed an unforced error in the US market you’re trying to reach. Or, you’re losing another executive after trading away 2,000 of your finest employees and you’re trying so hard to steer a sinking ship towards salvation. Or at least salvage.

Huawei and HTC are our main topics this episode, but we’ll also talk about the revival of one of Verizon’s bad habits and Xiaomi’s software shame with our colleague, Ryne Hager of Android Police, on this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video recorded from 3:00pm Eastern on February 16th, or check out the high-quality audio version right here. You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
