Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Huawei. This time these guys announced Huawei nova 5. This is a smartphone on Android 9 Pie in 2019.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2019 and choose from them. And, secondly, Huawei nova 5 has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Huawei nova 5 it does not support work in the fifth generation networks (5G). If this is very important and necessary for you, we advise you to choose any 5G smartphone in our catalog. Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Huawei nova 5 received OLED-screen measuring 6.39 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Huawei nova 5 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small drop notch above the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone Huawei nova 5 is 7.3 mm. This is an absolutely normal average shell thickness. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 3 500 mAh, which is the average value in the market.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Huawei nova 5. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 48 MP Wide + 16 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in Huawei nova 5. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 32 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 810. RAM 8 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 128 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Huawei nova 5 supports memory cards Nano Memory with the maximum volume 256 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Huawei nova 5: buy or not to buy?

So we told about not very expensive powerful smartphone Huawei nova 5 with a huge screen, chic main camera and very good selfie camera, and still there is a good battery.

All these characteristics in 2019 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in June 2019 at a price of $360. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Huawei nova 5, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Huawei nova 5 is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
