Score: 80.8 / 100

Huawei nova 5T is an impressive Android phone launched back in 2019, featuring a great Octa-Core processor clocking at 2.6 GHz, a big size 6.3-inches screen, and two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 32 mega-pixels front camera.

This cellphone construction is a combination of Glass and Aluminum . Although the Huawei nova 5T is only 6.07 inches long, it's still able to fit a a 6.3 inches display. Being just 0.31" thick,the Huawei nova 5T is incredibly slim and comfortable. This phone is much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone like this. Huawei offers this cellphone in three different color options, black, crush blue and midsummer purple.

This cellphone ships with an exceptional Octa-Core processing unit ticking at 2.6 GHz, bundled in the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chip with a great 6 GB RAM. A great point of the Huawei nova 5T is its 128 GB inmense internal storage and even though it doesn't count with an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to store lots of apps, games, songs, pictures and videos without even thinking about how much storage is left.

The Huawei nova 5T has two cameras, a 48 MP back camera and a 32 mega-pixels front-facing camera. the Huawei nova 5T's back camera has a maximum f/1.8 aperture so it can capture very nice photographs even in low-light conditions. It also films 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps, and 1920x1080 Full HD slow-motion videos at 60 frames per second (2 times slower than reality). In addition, the camera includes time lapse video.

Huawei equipped this cellphone with a great 6.3 inches display, and a 1080 x 2340 resolution, giving this cellphone a delightful graphical experience.

This phone counts with a high capacity 3750 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this device running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to take into account is that this device's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it starts to lose its charge, even though with so much capacity you will probably replace this phone before that becomes an issue.

This device has WiFi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a wireless modem), 4G (LTE-A) super quick connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies.

This cellphone costs about $ 430, which is not very cheap for comparing with similar cellphones.
