Assurance Warranty for Huawei Devices, EMUI 9.1 and Android Q

If you have been following the news, US is not backing out on their restriction on “certain companies” to use US technology. Of course, most people will know that one of them is Huawei.

Huawei may seem to be the biggest loser in this China-US trade war. However, I believe if the products are good, people will still support. You have heard it from the users. Now, their partners are rallying behind Huawei too.

Assurance Warranty for Huawei Devices

Check out Challenger’s latest promotion. If you buy Huawei’s devices from now till 31st August 2019, Challenger will provide a warranty on these devices.

  • Purchase any Huawei handsets/tablets, risk-free
  • 2-Year Protection on Google Apps
  • Huawei HiCare 2-Year warranty for Huawei handsets

Of course, there are terms and conditions. I have checked with Huawei. This is NOT from Huawei. It is from their partner, Challenger. This goes to show how the partners are supporting Huawei from another angle.
