Shoppers already shunning Huawei handsets

Huawei has had a difficult week and the consumer impact can already be seen, Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett at PriceSpy, comments:
“It’s not just network providers and tech giants who are turning their backs on Huawei. Over the last four days, Huawei handsets have slumped in popularity – receiving 28% less clicks as they did the week before in the New Zealand and up to 46% less in other countries where PriceSpy operate.

“Samsung seems to be benefitting the most from Huawei’s loss, with 24% more clicks on its products in the New Zealand.

“It remains to be seen if this will lead to a long term knock on effect for Huawei but early indicators show that the major manufacturer may struggle to recover outside of China.”

Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett is the New Zealand country manager at PriceSpy, the fully impartial price and product comparison site.
