TOKYO -- Japanese consumers interested in used smartphones are shunning Huawei Technologies amid worries over apps and the operating system as U.S. export controls target suppliers of the Chinese manufacturer.

The popular Huawei P10 Lite is now priced between 10,000 yen and 16,000 yen ($92 to $147) at used-phone stores, down roughly 20% to 40% from a month earlier. The P10 Lite has even been seen below 10,000 yen.
