Huawei Nova 5T is a middle-class mobile phone that is predicted to have a high-end taste. Although not explained clearly why Huawei claims this phone as a flagship-flavored cellphone when it was launched last September.
Because, when referring to the ability of the chipset, on paper Kirin 980 is still inferior to Snapdragon 730. Moreover, Xiaomi has just launched the Mi Note 10 Pro which is powered by the newer Snapdragon 730G chipset which is priced at the same price, $500.
Not to mention the invasion of mobile phones with Snapdragon 845 plus chipset which glided a lot at the end of last year. Because mobile phones with newer chipsets are priced at a price not far from this Huawei device.
However, the ability of the camera might be one of the factors that is relied on in this phone. Because, in accordance with the target market to be targeted, Huawei does present this phone for photo enthusiasts.
Another concern when buying a Huawei device is about the availability of access to the Google Play Store. Because the high tension between China and the United States, helped bring Huawei to be dragged in the vortex of tension between the two countries.
In the end, the US boycotted US companies to cooperate with Huawei. Threatening the availability of Google Play Store which is made by Google from the US. However, it turns out that Nova 5T is one of the lucky devices, because it can still access the Google Play Store.
Design & Screen
Discussing the design, the body of the Huawei Nova 5T is quite small with a thickness of 7.87 mm and a weight of 174 grams. Huawei carries a 6.26-inch FHD + LCD screen with a screen ratio of 91.7 percent.
Uniquely, the fingerprint sensor is located on the power button. Because of its small size, mobile phones are very comfortable to operate using one hand.
Huawei put the phrase ‘nova’ all over the back of the cellphone. In my opinion, this company’s breakthrough is interesting, plus the gradations of purple and blue that add ‘luxury’ appearance.
In addition, the company also has four rear cameras and one selfie photo camera.
Unfortunately, the 3.5 mm audio jack disappears on a middle class smartphone. Which can be difficult is if the default earphones are damaged, you have to buy something similar.
Nova 5T also relies on a USB type-C port. But the cellphone does not provide additional memory support, this can be seen from the sim tray design which only has two spots for the SIM card.
For those of you who need NFC features on mobile phones, the Nova 5T could be an option for you.
