The recent events that took place around Huawei and the government of the United States have led many users to think twice about buying a smartphone from the Chinese brand.
The risk that Huawei is forced to abandon the use of Android in favor of its own operating system has generated fear among some users about whether Huawei smartphones can continue running Android applications.
To counteract the situation, Huawei has created a guarantee program that promises to fully refund the price of the smartphone if popular applications such as Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, Gmail, Instagram, etc. has stopped working on the device within two years of purchase.
The company offers a full refund if your device can not run Google and Facebook apps. However, this “special guarantee” is only active for now in the Philippines.
The devices that are part of the program are Huawei P30 / P30 Pro / P30 Lite, Mate 20/20 Pro / 20 RS, P20 / P20 Lite / P20 Pro, Nova 3 / 3i, Nova 2 Lite, Y Max, Y9 Prime 2019 , Y9 2019, Y7 Pro 2019, Y6 Pro 2019, Y6 Pro 2019, Y6 2018, Y5 2019, Y5 Lite 2018, M5 Lite 10, M5 Lite 8, M3 Lite 8, T5 10 and T3 7.

With this guarantee, the company is trying to maintain its sales of smartphones and increase the confidence of customers.
Huawei has also confirmed the offer and declared that “it is an initiative of our distributors and merchants”. In these difficult times, distributors and merchants in the Philippines are supporting Huawei and more than thirty have joined this “special guarantee” program.
The Chinese company took second place in global smartphone sales in the first quarter of 2019. However, the company has restrained its ambitions to reach the top spot this year.
