What if you could have an Android phone that offers superb photography, long battery life and an elegant design for a fraction of the cost you’d expect to pay? In a smartphone landscape dominated by Apple and Samsung, it’s easy to forget that other manufacturers offer the same quality level. Huawei is one of them.
Huawei makes great smartphones that are popular worldwide, but a trade ban in the U.S. means those who seek them out have to live without Google apps or support. If that’s not an issue for you, you can save big money on a Huawei smartphone and even bigger money when you buy a Huawei phone online refurbished.
Buying refurbished is a way to ensure you get a good deal when shopping for second hand phones. Used phones are widely available, but most of the time, there’s no guarantee of quality or even of getting a warranty. Refurbished phones offer both and the freedom to choose from a wide variety of manufacturers and models.
But with all the options out there, why choose a Huawei smartphone in particular? Here are some reasons why you can reap the benefits when you buy a Huawei phone online.
What Are Huawei Phones?
Pronounced “wah-way”, Huawei is more than an Android smartphone company. It’s a major electronics and technology company based in China. Founded in 1987 to fill China’s urgent need for more telecommunications equipment, Huawei’s product range includes laptops, tablets, watches, earphones and software. Yet it’s the company’s smartphones that bring the traits people love about Apple and Samsung to the world for a lower price. Pros include brilliant multi-camera set-ups with crystal clear picture quality, amazing battery life, fast charging, and stellar new technological developments (the company was among the first to embrace folding smartphone technology).
But like every other style of phone, there are also cons. The trade ban seems unlikely to go away any time soon, and Huawei users have no access to the Google Play Store or Google-based apps like YouTube. Instead, Huawei has its own operating system to connect to smart devices on the Internet of Things: HarmonyOS. While it doesn’t have Google, Huawei has its own app store AppGallery, which has over 45,000 apps to choose from.
If you’ve been shopping around for second hand phones and an Android phone from Huawei sounds appealing, you’re in the right place. There’s much to choose from when you buy Huawei phones online with OzMobiles. In fact, we have some of the best-quality refurbished Huawei phones currently available.
The 5 Best Huawei Phones
So what sort of Huawei used phones should you buy? How about one of these five high-performers?
Mate 20 Pro
Released in 2018, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro continues to be the kind of high-performance phone that should satisfy Android lovers. Available in elegant blue or black designs, it’s powered by the speedy Kirin 980. The high-resolution OLED screen gives you a bright and clear picture, and the triple camera comes with a range of benefits: master AI scene recognition, video stabilisation, and macro mode. The battery, quick to charge and slow to run out, should satisfy any Android user. If you plan to buy a Huawei phone online, this is a good choice.
An expensive phone when it was first released, the Huawei Mate 20 is much more affordable when you buy it refurbished. You can save yourself hundreds of dollars. This smartphone has a lot in common with the more expensive Mate 20 Pro but also has a bonus or two that the Pro doesn’t have, such as a headphone jack. Its other benefits include triple cameras and a wide-angle lens, an octa-core Kirin 980 CPU for fast performance, battery life that can last for about two days and a decent-sized HDR-friendly screen.
The Huawei P30 Pro still holds up as an excellent phone years after its release in 2019. The camera setup is exceedingly high quality, with three main cameras and a Time-of-Flight sensor that measures how far off objects are. There’s a lossless zoom of up to 10X and a digital zoom of up to 50X. Like the Pro, the battery life is generous, too: slow to run out and quick to charge back up again. Elegantly designed and available in a range of pleasant colour options, the P30 Pro is a phone that should please the majority of people just fine.
The Huawei P30 has the same processor as the P30 Pro and takes the same quality of photos, but it has a headphone jack. It also has all the other great features you’d expect from a Huawei phone. The triple camera system lets you adjust your photo needs to shoot ultra-wide or close-up. The Kirin 980 CPU chip has enough power to handle all the downloads and games you could want. The P30 comes in various colours, with evocative names like Aurora Blue and Breathing Crystal. While this phone may have a few years under its belt, it remains a worthy investment and looks like it will stay that way for a long time yet.
Huawei has branched out into foldable phone technology, and the P50 Pocket is a triumph of the style. It’s comfortable to hold, elegant to look at (available in white or premium gold colours), yet tough in make. The 6.9-inch flexible OLED panel has bright and vibrant colours, the triple-camera system has enough quality and variety to please any photography lover, and the phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888. As you’d expect from Huawei, the battery life is enough to leave you very content.
Maybe you like the sound of one or all of these phones, but the question remains: where should you go to buy them online? When a quick Google search can bring up endless choices, where do you go for a product you can trust?
