21 Aug HUAWEI – beginning to play with the big boys!
A recent study by Counterpoint has shown that Huawei has surpassed Apple to become the second largest phone manufacturer in the world after Samsung.
For those who are still unfamiliar with Huawei, it is the largest Chinese phone producer and has recently expanded its enterprise into the South African market. The Huawei P8, P9 and P10 phones have been well received in South Africa and Huawei’s market share is ever-growing as the brand is quickly developing a reputation for being a value for money purchase. Huawei have also released Lite versions of the aforementioned models for those who are buying within a budget.
I personally hold a Huawei P9 Lite and am very satisfied with the purchase. It will be interesting to see the growth of Huawei in South Africa and whether or not the brand loyalty of Apple and Samsung users will in fact be tested, I guess we will need to wait and see!
