Huawei to offer full refund for new phone purchases if Google, Facebook apps stop working

“As of now, this offer is only available in The Philippines and on smartphones purchased between June 15th and August 31st”

Ever since the US added Huawei to its trade blacklist, the company hasn’t been doing too well. Despite plans to launch its own OS and the introduction of new phones, the trade war has caused the Chinese company a lot in terms of sales and profits. The company recently announced that it’s expecting its smartphone sales to drop by at least 40 percent. It also stated that the company could face a decline of $30 billion in revenue.

During times like this, customers would definitely not want to purchase a smartphone from Huawei. Therefore, to retain customers, the Chinese brand has come up with a new offer that is currently live in The Philippines. As per the new offer, customers who purchase a Huawei phone or tablet will get a full refund of the cost if apps from Google and Facebook don’t work on their devices. Of course, the offer comes with certain caveats.


For example, only purchases made after June 15th and by August 31st are eligible. Also, not all phones are part of this offer. The validity of the offer is for two years. If apps from Google and Facebook, such as WhatsApp, Instagram, Play Store, Gmail, YouTube etc, stop working within two years of purchase, then you can claim a full refund. Basically, the company wants to boost the confidence of the customer. Huawei has confirmed that it has partnered with more than 30 retailers and dealers in the country. 

It is definitely possible that this special warranty would be coming to other markets as well. Huawei’s smartphone sales are declining and this seems like a good deal to stay on team Huawei. Below is the list of the all the phones and tablets that are eligible for this special warranty ‘2 Years of Google Apps’ program.
