Huawei phones are as valuable as iPhones: Report
Huawei phones are made with the long-standing build quality. Despite two years of launch, Huawei Mate 40 Pro shows that it’s as valuable as iPhones for consumers.
The latest conversation came to light after people on Weibo started a discussion on research by a Chinese firm, BankMyCell. The study shows that iPhone’s depreciation rate is only half of Android’s.
The report is bundled from the year 2021 to 2022, it shows that iPhone retains its value the most. Meanwhile, Android’s value declines the fastest over 1 year of purchase. It even goes down by double digits within two years.
However, users are sharing different opinions on this matter such as: “What’s so good about depreciating Android in the smartphone industry?”
Some of those people said that the value of iPhones is indeed high. But there’s one Chinese smartphone company that can match Apple’s value retention rate and it is Huawei including the Huawei Mate 40 Pro.
According to the handheld smartphone platform, the second-hand price of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is currently up to 7450 yuan (1082 USD). As a phone launched in 2020, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is powered by an “out-of-print” Kirin 9000 chipset and supports 5G.
Additionally, some bloggers said that their Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G has been used for more than a year. Yet, it can still sell for 3500 yuan (508 USD), which is comparable to an iPhone.
The Kirin is not available on new flagship devices nor the 5G connectivity. Also, the demand for this premium smartphone remained unchanged even after the Huawei P50 series and later Huawei flagship models.
Not only that, it has the fastest and smoothest user experience among all phones released in the same timeline. Therefore, Huawei Mate 40 Pro became the valuable choice for consumers in the Chinese market over Apple’s iPhones.
