Comparing the design of all the phones, we can find out the drastic difference. Vivo V15 Pro offers an only front glass panel with a cheap plastic body. Moreover, another competition,

Samsung A80 comes with outdated Gorilla Glass 3 on front and back with aluminum frame. Talking about Oppo Reno is also the same in term of design offering front and back glass with not much in addition. But here with the front and back glass design with an aluminum frame, Huawei Nova 5T is far superior to other phones. Nova 5T has a glass back panel that produces a glare effect when light hits it.

The old days we carried the bulky phones are gone now. Here in hand to hand weight comparison combat, Nova 5T takes the game away.

Talking about the display, all of them: Samsung A80, Oppo Reno & Vivo V15 Pro contain an AMOLED or Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. But abnormally with those flagship killer specs, Nova 5T has an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. This doesn’t mean Nova 5T stand back but actually to improve the battery life it comes with IPS LCD screen. We can expect the best battery life among all four smartphones too.

All three phones: Samsung A80, Vivo V15 Pro & Oppo Reno are powered by Qualcomm SDM730 Snapdragon 730, Qualcomm SDM675 Snapdragon 675 & Qualcomm SDM710 Snapdragon 710 respectively. But Nova 5T comes with Kirin 980 which is the first commercial 7nm SoC chip and is lightning fast.

Kirin 980 crushes the Snapdragon line up in the segment. This chip enables lag-free and fluid experience for the user. The DUAL-NPU offers outstanding AI capability, increased performance and greater efficiencies, making HUAWEI nova 5T responsive, fun, and exciting to use. 

We tried basic gaming on all the phones. We played PUBG on all the phones on their highest setting.

Here, Nova 5T wins our hearts and the gaming comparison too.

We pushed the Nova 5T as far as we could with setting maxed out for this battle royale game. The average frame rate for PUBG sits at 40fps, but the stability was at 100 % without any frame drops. With the performance mode turned on, Nova 5T can handle popular titles like Asphalt 9, NBA 2k19, PUBG, ARK Survival, Fortnite, etc.

Moreover, with proper optimization and ram management, application loads much fast in Huawei Nova 5T. In speed comparison, Nova 5T took the least application launch time with the excellent ram management that outperformed other competitors like Samsung A80, Vivo V15 Pro & Oppo Reno. Smooth, high-definition, and power saving, the HUAWEI nova 5T is built for endless entertainment. There’s even a “Do Not Disturb” Mode that eliminates the frustration of game interruptions due to incoming calls and messages.

On paper, all four phones are impressive, where all the phones support EIS and well-marketed camera megapixels. But in our real-life comparison, we couldn’t get satisfied that much. Pop-up cameras were slow and weren’t as expected the company tried to show us.

Equipped with five AI cameras, the nova 5T is a pro-grade camera that fits in your pocket. With a 48 MP Quad AI camera at its rear and a 32 MP front selfie camera, you’re going to love taking photos with the nova 5T. The AIS super night mode provides exceptional ultra-wide angle shots so you can finally capture special moments in the dark. Whether you’re shooting a cute selfie, an ultra-wide-angle shot, a stunning portrait, or night time scenery, the nova 5T offers crystal clear photos, even in low-light conditions.

The 2MP macro lens allows you to discover the tiny world around us.

Conclusion:

When you buy a Nova 5T, there is no chance that you will regret your decision. Huawei Nova 5 T promises to be a very promising smartphone with a triple camera and battery with a quick charge option. Graphics of the case and casings have been added to the network, revealing gradient-covered casework that you might like. Probably the most attractive feature of the Huawei Nova 5T is its processor. This thing is powered by a Kirin 980 chipset, the same one found on the flagship P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro. That’s pretty impressive.

The best part is, it also comes with a generous 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a Mali-G76 MP20 graphics with Huawei’s GPU Turbo 3.0.

Besides its killer features, the Huawei Nova 5 is also dressed to kill. You can carry all its powerful processor and cameras in a very sleek body that’s only 7.87mm thick and weighs 174g.

For you to fully appreciate the design on the back, the Huawei Nova 5T utilizes a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that also doubles as the lock/power switch. This is a cleaner solution for a device that can’t have an in-display biometric system.

This may be some good reason to try out the new flagship killer in the market known to be Huawei Nova 5T.

Well, that’s it for now. Make sure you stay tuned as we’ll be publishing reviews and news of the technology world.
