Android version and market relevance

Huawei nova 5i was announced by the company Huawei in June 2019 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Huawei Nova. Huawei nova 5i works on Android 9 Pie, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Huawei nova 5i implemented support for working with two SIM cards.

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2019” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like Huawei nova 5i — this is the price segment page “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”.

Screen, body and battery

IPS LCD edge to edge touchscreen with a diagonal 6.4″ mounted on the front panel Huawei nova 5i, thickness 8.3 mm.

The battery in Huawei nova 5i is installed on 4 000 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is a very good indicator, of course there are models with even more volume, but they will probably be more expensive.

In addition to the described features of the body of this smartphone, we will add an important detail. To increase the screen area on the front panel, the producer added very small hole at the top of the screen to fit in a selfie camera and several additional sensors.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 24 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 24 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone received 8-core processor HiSilicon Kirin 710F. If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Huawei nova 5i received 6 GB of RAM, and there is another version of this smartphone with 8 GB of RAM.

Only one version of the built-in memory in the smartphone is on the market — 128 GB and expand the memory can only be using memory cards. Supported memory cards microSDXC.
