Huawei: PRC Chinese different understanding of honesty

Only managed to look at this old email this morning but it stayed with me because I connected it with Jack Ma bad attitude about fake goods sold on Alibaba platforms: he claimed often the fakes are better than the genuine, but the rest of us outside China could tell he has a serious blind spot about intellectual property. But what has that got to do with Huawei P9 phone? The link is blind dishonesty or you don't know you are dishonest. Because it is probably not wrong that the P9 Leica lens could take shots similar to the Canon 5D under certain conditions for certain subjects. To justify the deceit they probably tell themselves most owners probably cannot tell the difference. I am afraid lots of Chinese enterprises have a too practical attitude toward right and wrong. I have bought enough stuff from them off eBay to notice this habit.

To buy from the Chinese you need to know the product well because they will not hesitate to take advantage of your ignorance. Most of them who get a really good deal from the Chinese are the industrial buyers purchasing on specifications and tests for quality assurance.
