Not so long ago the founder and CEO of China of Huawei Ren Zhengfei (Ren Zhengfei) spoke about the fact that sales of smartphones fell by 40 %. In monetary terms, the drop in sales of smartphones may result in the loss of $30 billion.
To somehow slow down the decline in sales of smartphones, the Chinese company has developed a warranty program in which promises a full refund of the cost of smartphones Huawei, in the case that the devices will cease to operate popular applications, including Google Play Store, WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube, Gmail, Instagram etc. Guarantee to be valid, the specified application will no longer work on the Huawei smartphones within two years from the date of purchase.
In message Huawei Central says that the company is ready to reimburse customers, if you purchased your smartphone will cease to work Google and Facebook. It is worth noting that currently, this “special warranty” is valid only in the Philippines. Thus, the Chinese manufacturer is trying to slow the fall in smartphone sales and increasing customer confidence. Huawei representatives confirmed the introduction of a “special warranty” and said that the initiative came from the distributors cooperates with Huawei. Given that smartphone sales the Chinese company continue to decline in the future, “special warranty” may be relevant to the different markets.
We will remind, in the first quarter of 2019 Huawei was in second place in sales of smartphones, behind only Samsung. Currently, the Chinese vendor has moved into third place, behind second place Apple. Recent years, Huawei showed steady growth, which is gradually coming to an end. However, management expects that the company will be able to resume growth in 2021.
