This is my first "upgrade" from years of iphone usage. I am super happy with the new p30's overall performance. However, I just found out that I can not play pokemon Go with it. After extensive research, it seems the p30 I bought from China can not pass google saftynet test, which pokemon go uses to decide if the device is rooted or not. Also I can not download netflix, according to the troubleshoot guide from netflix, I found out that my google play is not play protect certified.
Considering these 2 apps are 2 of my most used ones, it's really disappointing.
My question is:
- is it because this is a China version of p30? However, my friend bought a mate20 from China too, his phone shows as play protect certified, thus he is able to download netflix. He doesn't play pokemon go so no comment on the safetynet test. I might ask him to test to see if his phone can pass safteynet test or not.
- is there a workaround?
Thank you very much!
