<pre><pre>The few places where you can still buy a Huawei phone in the US

Huawei phones are easy to find in many regions around the world. They are sold through carriers and are available in stores. That is not the case in the US, where Huawei does not officially sell its devices and no provider offers them. If those things don't have a deterrent effect, you'll probably have to go online to buy one, and even then the list of retailers operating devices made on Huawei, including the Honor phones, will shrink as a result of the US federal government's recent action from the government against Huawei.

The Microsoft Store and Walmart have recently stopped selling Huawei devices, and Adorama, a smaller operation, has recently scrapped to appear in its online store through the search engine. More sites are likely to follow, by hiding or completely erasing store pages for Huawei & # 39; s phones, tablets and laptops.

Yet there are a few places where you can find them. We have listed the stores below and added a note about the range of devices available in each store.

Keep an eye on warranty information while shopping, as many Huawei phones sold in the US are imported. Depending on the service of a third party offering the guarantee, there may not be a simple story or recourse at all, should it ever break. It is the responsibility of the guarantee provider to determine whether and how guarantee holders are reimbursed should you have a breakdown with a broken telephone.

eBay is one of the places on the internet to buy just about anything, so it's no surprise that you will find practically every Huawei phone made here. You can find the Huawei P30 Pro, coveted for photography in low light, from $ 819.99. If you are nostalgic about the Huawei made Nexus 6P, you will also find many second-hand options on eBay.

Before you check out, you have the option to add a SquareTrade warranty. That's a good idea for a few reasons: imported phones rarely contain any warranty, and SquareTrade has a plan to stand up for customers who purchase Huawei phones should they lose access to the parts needed to to fix them.

In a statement to The edge, SquareTrade VP and global creative director Jason Siciliano says that "customers will receive replacements with equivalent or better feature sets from other leading Android-based manufacturers such as Samsung, LG or Alcatel."

Amazon offers various Huawei phones ranging from affordable ones like the Huawei Mate SE (currently $ 219.99) and the Honor 8X (currently $ 209) for a few of the company's more expensive flagship phones, such as the Huawei P30 (currently $ 574).

Amazon does not offer the option to purchase a warranty for every Huawei phone. For those who do, a company called Asurion offers the service. According to the conditions, it can replace phones that are registered in a security plan, although we contact Asurion to confirm whether this also applies to Huawei phones.

In the case of buying a phone, and most electronics, the choice of any external warranty provider is not limited to what an online retailer tells you. So, if Asurion or another provider does not meet your expectations, you can choose one that does.

This NYC store chain still sells Huawei phones, tablets and laptops online. For phones, the selection of B & H Photo is focused on Huawei & # 39; s recent P30 series. You will not find the P30 Pro, but it contains the standard P30 and P30 Lite.

B & H Photo offers an optional guarantee through a third party, SquareTrade. As mentioned earlier, SquareTrade says that it will stand behind customers with Huawei phones. It will replace defective phones with a phone with an equal or better feature set from, for example, Samsung, LG or Alcatel. So, if you want protection, SquareTrade is a good way to go.
