Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Huawei nova 5T we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Huawei in August 2019. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Huawei nova 5T works on Android 9 Pie and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2019.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Huawei nova 5T is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. The manufacturer could add support for fifth-generation networks to this smartphone, but did not. Perhaps not to raise the price, or for other reasons. If for you the presence of support for 5G networks in a new smartphone is very important, then we recommend that you go to this page in the catalog — all 5G smartphones on Android.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Huawei nova 5T. The body is quite compact and the screen occupies almost all of its area from edge to edge (from 80% to 90% of the area of the case). There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a cutout in the form of a small hole for a selfie camera. On the front side of the case is located huge IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 6.26″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 3 750 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Huawei nova 5T. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 48 MP Wide + 16 MP UltraWide + 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 5T. 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 smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Huawei nova 5T is installed 8-core processor on the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 980. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 6 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 8 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. You are only available 128 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

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

So this is Huawei nova 5T after the official announcement. This new product hit the segment just above the average price of smartphones.

Buy Huawei nova 5T you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  September 2019. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $315 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is is just a huge screen, and the camera is sooooo cool, and the frontcamera is also very cool.
