Huawei Nova 5T Review

The Nova 5T is Huawei’s 2nd Nova phone ahead of this year. It comes with a time when most leading brand names, consisting of Huawei, are simply done releasing their top-specced front runners. With their most recent Nova phone, Huawei is wanting to satisfy those spurting after a premium tool on a limited budget plan.

On paper, the Nova 5T resembles an excellent worth recommendation. It crams in a cinema in a wieldy account, a quad-camera arrangement like Huawei’s P30 Pro, and also Huawei’s first-rate Kirin 980 CPU – all at a tasty price.

As great as everything audios, the Nova 5T is still brief from having the ability to call itself a front costs runner. You will not see top-end attributes like wireless charging, expanding storage space, an OLED display, or water resistance. But if you can live without these additionals and also hunger for the cam high quality of a phone like the P30 Pro, the Huawei Nova 5T is a phone you need to take into consideration seriously.

Huawei Nova 5T 4 Rates and also Schedule

You can grab the Nova 5T currently for AED 1,599, in 3 shade coatings – summer purple, crushed blue and also black. It is available in only the one arrangement 8 GB RAM with 128 GB non-expandable storage space.

Given the quantity of technology and also includes its supplies, the Nova 5T does appear like a deal versus premium competitors like the Huawei P30 Pro, But you need to keep in mind that in 2015’s front runners – consisting of the superb P30 – have seen cost cuts. Phones like the mid-range One Plus 7 Pro additionally provide a far better, liquid AMOLED display and also increase the storage space for simply a couple of hundred Dirhams a lot more.


The Nova collection has revitalized its brand name, and also we enjoy it. We have got the Midsummer Purple system to review. Also, it resembles a separation from the flamboyant slopes and also sparkling surface that we have involved link Huawei phones with.

On the 2.5 D glass-clad back, you’ll locate the freshly produced Nova monogrammed in an appealing reflective surface that produces a practically holographic visual. The Nova monogrammed is ingrained discreetly throughout the back in a contemporary, duplicating pattern like a developer purse. While this glass surface captures fingerprints at the least touch, the dark purple surface and also reflective light camouflage them well.

The back residences the crucial tourist attraction of the Nova 5T: an extremely qualified quad-cam arrangement. Positioned in an upright selection, the lens arrangement looks a whole lot like the one located on the P30 Pro, with three primary lenses and also flash in a single line and also a small sensing unit off sideways.

The camera bump on the Nova 5T isn’t as low as the one located on its careful match relative – the Honor 20 Pro. Though similar to the Honor 20 Pro, the phone rocks if you lay it level on the table.

Turn the phone over, and also, you’ll be welcomed with a big 6.26- inch display screen that’s expertly loaded right into a small type variable. The phone feels strong. And also, its graceful account produces a wonderful in-hand feeling. Instead of the notch, the Nova 5T sporting activities a 4.5 mm punch-hole in the leading left edge, offering the phone a screen-to-body proportion of over 90%. You can still locate slim bezels around the display beside the large chin under that protrudes.

On the right, there’s an indented side-mounted fingerprint scanner that additionally functions as a power switch. It rests listed below the quantity rockers and also jobs, never taking as well long to open the phone.

The lower residences a USB-C port beside an audio speaker grille without earphone jack visible, which is unsatisfactory. The box consists of a set of USB-C earphones, however, no dongle, so if you intend to utilize your preferred wired headsets, you’ll need to get an adapter by yourself. Still, it’s one much less port to stress over and also cover in the instance of direct exposure to water given that the Nova 5T is not waterproof.


The IPS LCD panel is one of the most obvious indications of the Nova 5T’s moderate price. While still qualified, the Nova 5T’s display screen disappoints the vivid and also punchy OLED & AMOLED panels located in a little greater valued phones.

Colors on the LCD panel aren’t as brilliant, and comparison appears off in specific accounts, and also blacks aren’t black, leaving grey verge on the sides and also showing off less-than-desirable comparison throughout dark scenes. They are brighter than a lot of OLED displays, and also not as much of a duty to utilize under straight sunshine.

Full HD+ resolution at 2340 x 1080 p appears to a thoughtful 412 PPI, causing crisp photos and also video clips. But given that it’s an IPS LCD, it is a stress on the battery. There’s additionally no dark-mode on LCDs for battery performance; however, you can by hand decrease the resolution under the display setups to lower battery drain…

We rather like punch-hole display screens to the scratched ones that can be rather invasive, so on the Nova 5T, the cut-out on the leading left can be overlooked conveniently. It just got visible you’re utilizing full-display applications that have controls on the location where the punch-hole is. In this instance, you can zoom out of fullscreen display screen setting and also pick to have a black verge on leading and also lower like a phone with bezels.
