Go Huawei, germs!

Free phone cleaning service being billed a boon for the bacteria-phobic

Germaphobes freaked out by reports that mobile phones carry more bacteria than a toilet seat are the target of a clever marketing campaign by Huawei which is offering South African owners of its phones a free cleaning service.

It’s part of a promotion the China-based multinational is holding at its SA stores from Thursday to Sunday on the last week of every month.

Apart from the free exterior phone cleaning, the company is also offering free screen protectors, free out-of-warranty labour charge (you only pay for parts replacement) and free software support.

In addition, for this launch weekend only, this service will include free device diagnosis (WiFi/screen/etc.), introduction to Huawei services and tips on how to get the most out of the Huawei phone, including features like knuckle screen capture and gesture control.

These services are available at all Huawei Customer Service Centres.

Another special offer from Huawei, which is available from 1 to 30 June, is a battery replacement promotion. If your Huawei phone is out of warranty, the company will replace the battery for R199. If your phone is covered by warranty, Huawei will replace it for free. All Huawei phones come with a two-year warranty, which covers both hardware and software issues.

Phones models included in the offer are the Y3 2018, Y5 PRIME 2018, Y7 2018, P8 lite 2017, P8 lite, P9, P10, P10 Plus, P20 Pro, P20 and P20 lite. – GeekWire.Co.Za
