Note:The initial article pointed out that Huawei imported more equipment than Samsung, which is not true. Where Huawei has surpassed the Korean brand, is in value of imports, not in imported equipment. Updated note with additional information

Awesome. According to the Customs Superintendency, as reported by La Repblica, Huawei has now reached the first place in value of imports in our country.It should be noted, however, that Samsung continues to dominate when it comes to imported units, with 23%, over 18% of Huawei and a distant LG with 13%

Before we knew Huawei as a manufacturer of cheap equipment, the typical brand of cell phones that one bought because they offered it very cheaply, without generating any kind of expectations. Perhaps we also knew it as the brand in charge of installing the entire 4G infrastructure, responsible for the antennas. But we never associate it as a "premium" brand.

All this began to change in 2013, with the launch of the Huawei Ascend P6 that we review here. The phone offered good performance at a price much more comfortable than other similar equipment. At that time, the "top" phones of Peru, against which the P6 competes, were Samsung's Galaxy S4, HTC One, and Sony's Xperia Z1, on Android. Apple had the iPhone 5 on the market.

This was a critical first step for Huawei, as it began to change people's perception of the brand. I remember being surveyed about what the name “Huawei” evoked in me and, in fact, the first thing that came to mind were cheap phones, generated to meet a demand in the low-end segment.

And boy, how times change, right? 4 years later, and Huawei's “P” line and Mate are among the best phones on the market.Huawei has just announced and is very close to launching the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, one of the first phones on the market to come with Android 8.0 Oreo. The brand has partnered with Leica, giving us the best mobile photography experience. And unlike many of its competitors, who depend on a company to supply their processors (Qualcomm), Huawei has been considerably improving the performance of its own processors, the Hisilicon Kirin, giving it a differential advantage (along with Samsung with its Exynos, and Apple with its "A" line of processors).

Today, Huawei has reached 23% market share, going to Apple (15%) but above all to Samsung (21%), which had remained the dominant brand for many years.

According to Yang Yue, Director of Terminals of Huawei Per for the Republic:

"We truly appreciate the trust and support we receive from customers and partners, and that is why they started. We continue to work hard to make things better, not only in terms of technological advancements, but also to generate a warmer experience.

The growth that this brand has had in the last 4 years continues to impress. But it shows us that there is always room for a company that sets a clear objective and manages to offer us quality products. Huawei managed to completely change the perception that the public had about the brand and today, it is among one of the most important in the world.
