Huawei promises consumers in the Philippines a full refund if Gmail and Facebook won’t work on its devices

By Li Tao

Huawei Technologies, China’s leading smartphone vendor, has promised to fully refund the cost of its smartphones and tablets in the Philippines in the event the devices are unable to support popular apps from US companies such as Google and Facebook, after the company was put on a blacklist by the US government.

The full-refund programme allows consumers in the Philippines to get back the price of a Huawei smartphone if apps such as Google’s Gmail and YouTube, and Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp fail to function on the handsets within two years of purchase, Philippine media Revu first reported, adding that more than 30 partner retailers and dealers were part of the programme.
