Let me start off with the most obvious question which is “isn’t Huawei banned?”. An echoing concern amongst our audience in our unboxing video is the evident fear of the US lockout but as you can see, Huawei is releasing their latest NOVA 5T and as previously stated, any and all launched products will continue to be supported by Google. With that out of the way, let’s get started with our review of the Huawei NOVA 5T.
The most resounding feature of the Huawei NOVA 5T is that it features the same Kirin 980 processor as the P30 and P30 Pro. Yes, those top-end phones share the same engine as the NOVA 5T. That means the NOVA 5T is promising flagship performance at a surprisingly good offer and that’s the main take here: at only Php18,990, the Huawei NOVA 5T that is easily less than half the price of the P30 Pro. In a market where more people want to game on their smartphones while still make it last throughout the day in a single charge, that’s a challenging proposition. Is the Huawei NOVA 5T up to the task?
