Huawei AppGallery app store is fairly lightweight and can be installed on any Android 5+ device. It is an excellent drop-replacement for a Google Play Store especially for devices without Google Play services, such as DAPs (iBasso DX series, FiiO M series and etc.) or devices distributed in Mainland China. Huawei are extremely strict with an app submission and verification process, so the "trash" apps will not go through their review process that makes Huawei AppGallery safer in terms of distributed app quality in comparison to Google Play.
Neutron is distributed via Huawei AppGallery app store too and is available in all countries, including Mainland China. Once installed Neutron will run for 4-5 days of trial period and then will expire. If you like its performance and functionality just press 3-dot button in the Trial Expiry dialog or press settings -> Help -> Buy Now entry to start in-app purchase procedure of Huawei AppGallery which is very easy and fast.
After the purchase Neutron will automatically verify license, so you do not need to do anything else to continue using Neutron.
