Last month, a reviewer praised the Huawei P30 Pro as one of 2019's best flagships thanks to its superb camera, exquisite design and colors. In the UK, the P30 Pro sells for about £ 900 (equivalent to $ 1150), at the price of Samsung Galaxy S10 + with the same storage capacity.
In addition to the old, innovative collection program of companies, in the UK there are also private websites that acquire users' smartphones. On an exchange page to buy and sell the most popular smartphones in the UK, Samsung Galaxy S10 + can still be paid to £ 510 (equivalent to 650 USD). This is a significant decrease compared to the retail price, about 45%. However, the price reduction of the Huawei P30 Pro is truly remarkable.
On the same site, the Huawei P30 Pro only paid £ 100 (equivalent to $ 130) for those who want to sell, losing nearly 90% of the value.
This stems from Huawei being banned by the US government from cooperating with US technology companies. Many US companies have announced to stop cooperating with Huawei, including Google, Intel, Qualcomm …
Not only is Huawei's P30 Pro, P20 also affected. Just a few months ago, taking P20 Pro to resell you can get £ 280 but now it's only £ 50. Meanwhile, Samsung's flagship 2018 is still priced at £ 235, higher than Huawei's flagship 2019.
There are quite a number of smartphone exchange websites in the UK and each site offers a different price for Huawei P30 Pro but all are low. GiffGaff page to cost 100 pounds, FoneWizard to cost 150 pounds. Some other sites, including the famous Mazuma, do not exchange Huawei smartphones.
