This factor has contributed to Huawei improving the smartphone experience through investing in higher storage, larger screen size and better camera resolution among others.
“We are glad to be contributing the ever-growing smartphone usage in Kenya, therefore, we would like to reassure our customers that all devices in the market will continue using Google services as well as Facebook.
