10 Popular Huawei Phones in Kenya (With Google Apps)

It’s undeniable that Huawei Phones in Kenya are among the most popular brands. However, following the US Ban, newer Huawei Smartphone Models do not have Google Services.

Don’t misunderstand me, all Huawei phones are running on Andriod (with some rocking Android 10). However, the absence of Google Play Services means you can’t access apps like Play Store, Gmail, YouTube, and all the popular Google products you’ve come to love.

Since my work is to simplify buying, here is a list 10 reliable Huawei smartphones you can buy in Kenya today. They all have Google Services and pack some of the latest software updates from Huawei.

As usual, most if not all the product links point you to Huawei’s Official Store on Jumia. Trust me, you are safer buying from an official store when it comes to Jumia.

  1. A friend of mine prompted me the idea of y9- complete with its features.

    Having been an ardent infinix user, specifically because of its camera, and quick charge and its internet speed, i was reluctant, but gave all cautuon to the wind and went for this HUAWEI Y9P.

    A month down the line, i can never be this happy!

    What a phone!
    Picture quality, speed and space.
