But a lot of you are probably aware that this phone cannot access the Google mobile services, and that means that there is no Google Play Store so how they able to install all these apps. Oh, I can actually use the phone as my main phone well that's. What I'm I'm about to tell you in this video now I've made a similar video talking about this when I first got the phone, but I feel that I didn't have a good enough understanding. When I made the first video – and I didn't know everything about this phone then, but after using it for so long, I fill that time. I can explain better how to get all these apps on the phone and what apps work, what apps, don't and so on and with that being said, let me turn the camera around I'll show you the phone and I'll tell you all about it. Alright, so do I wait before the pro comes preinstalled allow is own app store and this app store is called app gallery. This is how the app gallery looks and you can install a bunch of apps from here, so let's go to games quickly action games, so there are a bunch of games in here. There are a lot of apps that you can install on from this App Store. However, you're not going to find all the apps that you would find in the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store.
So, yes, there are a lot of apps and more and more apps being brought on every single day, but you are not gon na find all the apps. So what can you do? How can you install all these apps that you see here because, for example, Instagram Facebook, Twitter, aren't gon na be available in the App Gallery, the same with Spotify, the Tesla, app Firefox, excetera etcetera? So a lot of apps that aren't um installed? Well, the easiest way to install apps on this phone is by using an app that comes pre installed on it, and this app actually comes pre installed on a bunch of um wowie devices, but you can install it on other Android device, and this is called phone Clone so what does this app don't? Well, you basically transfer the apps from your old phone to this phone it's that simple! So once you do that, you have basically all the apps that you had on old phone and doing this it's very safe, because you know that nobody changed those apps in any way. So a lot of the apps that you are seeing here were actually installed. That way, so a very safe way and a very fast way. Now there are other ways of installing apps, of course, um. You can install one of these some app stores, different app stores, so this is one of them that you can install and this one basically has 99 of the apps that you're gon na find in the Google Play Store and you can install anything from it and You can also do updates on the apps that you have them installed, so let's go back here so again.
This is another app store that allows you to install a bunch of warm apps. So if we go here and you're gon na see all the updates that are available so to give you an example, let's update Spotify so now that the updated version of Spotify is installed I'm gon na open it and I'm right on where I was before so It'S already logged in but 'old some apps you do have to log back in when you update them on that way. Now, if you update other apps like the PayPal app, for example, that app is not gon na work anymore. So to update this app you'd have to update it first on the phone that you've sent it over from and then send over the updated version. If you update banking apps, basically from one of these stores, well they're, not gon na work. So keep that in mind. The apps will crash right after so that is a downside, because, whenever you're updating apps, you cannot update all the apps as easily as you would from the Google Play Store. So without having the Google Play services you basically don't have access to any Google apps. I mean you can install google apps like maps here. I didn't want to show my location, so Google Maps works fine. However, you cannot login so you're, not gon na. Have your addresses your home address your work address and so on, but you can use the abnormal leave.
It gives you directions and everything works. Fine if you don't use that app, you can also use ways and ways works good. Once again, let me just open the app and move my location around. So ways works just as good as Google Maps. So if you don't, I use Google Maps so this one, you can actually log into your account. You can save your addresses and so on, so that works good to access. Your gmail account you basically just use. Wow is email app and you can log in to any of these, and if you are using Outlook or something like that, you can install a Microsoft Outlook and it works fine. Now the one thing that you don't get without having the Google and Google service ism is a Google Drive and Google Photos. So what can you do for that? Well, in my case, I've installed the Microsoft's onedrive. So this is basically the same as Google photos or Google Drive combined in one. So all my pictures are updated here uploaded here as soon as I take them. Well, whenever I'm connected to two Wi Fi and then I can access the pictures from pretty much any device from computers from an iPhone from pretty much anything and again, you have all the files, all the folders, just as you would with Google Drive so it's, not That bad, without having Google Drive, what do you do for YouTube because YouTube doesn't allow you to to open the app because it the phone doesn't, have the Google Play services well for that you can use a different type of modified YouTube.
App called um YouTube van stand. This works really really good, actually better than the official YouTube app, because it allows you to play videos in the background, something that the official YouTube app doesn't actually allow you to do unless you have YouTube premium. But what not? Everyone has done that all the other apps that you are seeing here so Instagram, for example. Let me open that again: Instagram works without any issues. Facebook works without any issues. What else we have here? Twitter works, um, perfect and all these apps I've actually installed by sending them over from my other device, my yp4 EEPROM, using the foam clone when it's time to update these apps. You just open one of these stores here and if there is an update available, you just update the apps that way so very simple, and once you have one of these installed well, we don't really have to worry about them anything else. Now there are some apps that aren't gon na work because of the phone it's missing the Google Play services. So look at this, so if you open nest, you're gon na see this here next won't run without Google Play services. You are not supported by your device, which is cool. However, next actually works. So I can even see my camera there. I can change the temperature, so it just gives you one of those messages. Now. An app that I wish would have worked is uber, so you can open.
Nobody can log into your account. However, you're gon na get this message and you cannot select your location on the map, and that is a bit disappointing because you cannot use uber. Basically, the uber app the same happens with some banking apps. So as soon as you open the banking app, it will close so you're not gon na be able to use your banking apps on this one. However, you can use the browser to basically log into your banks, so all you have to do is make a bookmark and add that bookmark on your home screen and then you can just log in to your bank that way through the browser it's, not as simple And as easy as er, if you'd have an app, but it is a solution for now other popular apps like Tesla, for example, so I can lock and unlock my car works. Fine without any issues. Whatsup works good without any problems, and, as I said them, if you don't wan na do the phone clone, you can always install those apps from here from these alternative app stores that basically have every single app available on in the Google Play Store. Now, for other cloud services, you can also use Dropbox and once again, draw box works good without any problems. You have all your pictures and you can use either this or Microsoft's onedrive it. They both are the same for games. Well, some games aren't exactly gon na work because the game is gon na.
Tell you that the phone doesn't have the Google Play services and it cannot run, but I was able to install these games and they do work on final doubt. Any issue so Call of Duty pop G, so basically the most popular games and you're gon na be able to use this way by installing them from one of these stores or by sending them over from another device using phone clone. So can you use this phone as your main phone without Google services absolutely and it's actually refreshing, using a phone without Google services, because now the battery life that you get is double than before, because we all know that the Google Play services do use a lot Of battery this one, I can get over ten hours of screen on time on one charge, which is kind of insane and nothing that I've ever experienced before for any flagship. It is a bit more inconvenient to install apps from other stores, so not from the official store. Of course, you can use the browser and download apps that way if you'd wan na rely on those stores, but I feel that that's gon na be your safest bet to send them apps from your old phone using phone clone or using one of these alternative, app Stores, basically so, yes, you can absolutely use a phone without the Google Play services, it may be a big deal inconvenient, but it is a hundred percent doable. So, yes, it may be a bit more inconvenient installing apps and using the phone this way, but it is a hundred percent um doable now I've heard that you can install the Google mobile service is not.
There is a method that works, but if you do that, every time the phone gets an update, a software updater it's gon na break functionality once again and then you're gon na have to start them with everything from from the beginning. So you're gon na have to install all the apps before they're gon na do have to do a factory reset and so on, so that's. Why? I didn't want to do do that and install the Google Play services because I do want to get updates on the phone I'm, hoping that the cameras will get better and so on. So I feel that this is the better way to do to do this and to use the phone this way now, if you guys have any questions, if you want me to try any apps on this, one definitely leave a comment down below and I'll try on. Whatever app you want me to try and I'll, let you know if it works or not or if you have any other questions, and definitely let me know so: yes, it isn't bad using the oep 40 Pro as your main device. Without any Google services, it is actually possible and I've been doing it um over the past week, and I will continue using this forum from now on as my main device. Alright guys, hopefully enjoyed this video.
