Survey: Most Huawei users would consider upgrading to Harmony OS

Earlier this month, Huawei unveiled the second iteration of Harmony OS, its do-it-all operating system for use on future hardware. The company has also confirmed that the OS will be readied for use on smartphones too and that existing devices running Android-based EMUI 11 can be “upgraded” to Harmony OS. We still haven’t seen a Harmony OS smartphone yet, nor do we know which devices will be eligible for the upgrade. But we did want to hear your opinion on the matter. We asked readers if given the choice, would you upgrade your Android-based Huawei phone to run on Harmony OS instead? Here’s what you told us. Before we get into the numbers, it’s worth mentioning just how open-minded readers were in the poll. 83.5% of all respondents would be open to the idea of jumping from EMUI 11 to Harmony OS. In effect, around four in every five Huawei users in our poll would consider dropping Android for Huawei’s fledgling OS. That’s a considerable share. A little over 40% of respondents have reservations though, citing Harmony OS’s features as the determining factor. Huawei hasn’t given us any major indication of these just yet, so it’s understandable to see such a high number of users on the fence.
