Best Buy to Stop Selling Huawei Phones After Inventory Depletes

Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Huawei has suffered yet another blow in their efforts to break into the US smartphone market.  Retailer Best Buy is reportedly not replenishing their current inventory of devices such as the Mate 10 Pro and will cease selling them once inventory is gone.

The news adds to what has already been a very rough start to 2018 for the Chinese manufacture in the United States.  In January both AT&T and Verizon pulled out of carrier deals with the company after being pressured by the United States government to do so.  This forced Huawei to look to retail channels like Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg and B&H Photo.  So far, only Best Buy has indicated they will not be selling the device any longer.

Review – The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is A Solid Evolution of a Great Flagship

Huawei Mate 10 Pro

When it comes to flagship devices in 2018, there are certain expectations you have in that device.  It is going to have a solid display, likely 18:9.  It is going to have solid performance, excellent battery life and cameras that give you those great shots every day no matter the conditions.  That is a significant list of demands and few phones fully meet all the criteria.  But the latest flagship from Huawei, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, does so brilliantly.

Building on the solid foundation of the Mate 8 of 2016 and the Mate 9 of 2017, the Mate 10 Pro is an evolution of all the things Huawei has learned on their phones.  While this is evident under-the-hood with their updated, AI-driven Kirin SoC, it is also in the more visible parts too.  EMUI 8, the company’s take on Android Oreo, is everything that the previous version where not.  In other words, it is intutitive and solid.  I actually like EMUI now.  Add to that an impressive dual camera configuration with Leica optics and you will get stunning photos from the phone too.  It is a pretty complete package that is fun to use.

Recently I was sent a Huawei Mate 10 Pro by Huawei USA to review and after using it, I can easily recommend it for those of you who are looking for a flagship phone.  At a price of $799, it is certainly in the flagship price range but you’ll find very few compromises with this phone.
