Though Huawei is facing some challenges due to the United States government's ban, they are still flourishing and a major contender to Samsung and Apple companies. The United Kingdom gave them a license to market their products and have confirmed so far that they haven’t found anything wrong with the Smartphone giant.
Presently, Tecno, Infinix, and Xiaomi are significant in the African market, but I see Huawei owning this market in a few years to come. The hardware and software on their devices are top-notched. Let me know what you think about that.
