Huawei Nova 5T Smartphone Review – Honor Clone With Improvements

A clever move. Honor smartphones originally were profitable sprouts of some Huawei models that were not much older. At least, this was the case before the subsidiary began to strengthen its own identity and move ahead, as for example when it was first to introduce a the 48-MP camera in the Honor V20. But the Nova 5T from Huawei is really an Honor 20. In this way, Huawei can still use the Google services, since the Honor 20 was introduced to the market before the deadline in the USA.

Nova 5T

The logo looks different and is in a different place, but otherwise, the looks are almost identical, including the arrangement of the camera and fingerprint scanner. The Kirin 980, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage for data, neither of which can be expanded: it is also identical here, and 3DMark even lists the Nova as Honor 20 in one benchmark. However, there are still some small differences, and Huawei has made some improvements particularly in the mobile communications. Of course, the Honor 20 will also accompany us in the Huawei test, as are three other possible alternatives: the Google Pixel 3a, the Samsung Galaxy A80, and the Mi 9 from Xiaomi.

By the way, there was never a "Nova 4," since the number 4 has a negative connotation for the Chinese - we already know this from the OnePlus.

Case – The Nova 5T looks good with a lot of glass

The pretty Nova is smooth, with a case of shimmering glass that also makes the back look elegant. The camera sticks out considerably from the case, making the smartphone wobble when you try to operate it while it is lying on a table. The front camera is unobtrusive, only needing a small round inset in the display. 

The fingerprint scanner sits on the side of the frame. We have seen this before in Chinese tablets. In the Huawei smartphone, this is unusual, but can be operated comfortably. The sensor can be pressed and also serves as the standby key. An infrared sensor on top, a mono speaker, and a USB-C port at the bottom of the case complete the visible equipment.

Equipment – A fast SoC and a lot of RAM

The equipment inside is also impressive: With the Kirin 980, Huawei uses a high-quality SoC from its own brand, HiSilicon, which gets 6 GB of RAM to run. While the storage is not expandable, it is sufficiently large with 128 GB. The USB-C port still uses the 2.0 standard and is thus unable to support the faster transfer rates. There is a USB-C headset for audio listening, and an adapter for standard headsets that use a 3.5-mm plug is also included.

Software – A Huawei that still has Google Services

Our test unit was still delivered with Android 9. However, Android 10 is available for the Nova 5T and was installed together with the corresponding EMUI 10 user interface and the Android security patch from October 6. In addition to the Google services we have already mentioned, several bloatware apps are also installed, but you can uninstall them.

Communication and GPS – Improvements compared to the Honor 20

It is surprising when Huawei does not score in the network communication area. Not only are routers one of the business segments of the company, but this is also where its roots are. Using our Linksys EA8500 reference router, the Nova 5T and Honor 20 only reach less than 350 Mbps, even in the download. The similar drop for both devices at the beginning of the transfer also stands out. 

In the mobile communication, the Nova 5T improves on a shortfall of the Honor 20, which only supported two bands respectively in the GSM and UMTS network. The Huawei also scores with a high coverage in the LTE net.

GPS Test indoors

The GPS receiver works fast and is able to quickly find a sufficient amount of signals already indoors. The locating is already fairly accurate in here, so that when you go outside, there is only an improvement in the signal strength. The "GPS Test" app recognizes signals from the GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and Beidou satellite systems.

During a bike tour, where we also take the Edge 500 professional navigation device from Garmin, the recording of the route is almost exemplary in the Huawei. Even in places where the professional device runs into some trouble, such as when it cuts off the corner of a house in a residential area, the smartphone remains on track.

Phone Functions and Voice Quality

Huawei uses its own phone interface with additional features such as quick-dial and voice control. The quality of the voice transfer is good in both directions. In addition, the Nova 5T supports VoLTE and VoWIFI, which had not been possible with at least our test unit of the Honor 20

Cameras – The Nova 5T comes in behind Samsung and Google

The camera makes a strong impression on paper: Under bad light conditions, the f/1.8 aperture of the AI-supported 48-MP main camera is supposed to let in as much light as possible. It is accompanied by a 2-MP sensor for portraits and close-ups, and an additional sensor for the Bokeh effect. A lens on top with a short focal distance allows you to take wide-angle shots. With 32 MP, the selfie camera also has a high resolution, and having an aperture of f/2.0 also makes it relatively light sensitive for a front camera. However, the portrait function is reduced to a filter with a selected image section that is calculated afterwards into the picture. 

We compare the camera with a professional camera and the Google Pixel 4 and iPhone7 11 Pro smartphones. The pictures from those are sharper in all three scenes, but the detail enlargements are also noisy in the dark. Huawei reduces the image noise to the detriment of the sharpness. This is advantageous for recordings with little light, but in the portrait of the teddy bear, it leads to washed out spots in the fur. In the city picture, the reflections on the car roofs also turn out worse than those from the Apple and Google phones.

The Nova 5T reproduces the colors of the ColorChecker Passport image slightly lighter, but without any color tint worth mentioning. Under controlled light conditions, we also evaluate the sharpness and detail levels. In the center of the test image, all the details are reproduced sharply. However, towards the side and bottom edges, the contrast and sharpness decrease noticeably.

Accessories and Warranty

In addition to the charger, USB-C cable, SIM tool, and technical documents, there are also a headset and an additional adapter for a headset with a standard 3.5-mm audio plug.

The warranty period is 24 months. 

Input Devices and Operation

The Nova can be unlocked by bio-metric methods using the face or fingerprints. Both methods respond exceptionally fast in the test. SwiftKey is installed as the standard keyboard. This is a keyboard app that is older than Google's GBoard and has been proven for many years. However, SwiftKey is unable to produce the mini stickers that you can create from a selfie with Google since 2018 and also on the iPhone. If you need those, you have to install GBoard.

Display – Differences compared to the Honor

Thanks to Widevine Level 1 certification, content from Amazon, Netflix, and so forth is also displayed in high resolution on the 19.5:9 screen. The ITPS display offers a good average brightness, but not in all areas of the screen. The brightness distribution of the Honor 20 presented itself significantly more even. On the other hand, the contrast, which results from good brightness and a low black value, is better in the Nova 5T

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17943 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The high color temperature of just barely below 9000 K indicates a cool color reproduction. This is also confirmed by the Delta-E value of 6.6, measured by the spectral photometer and the CalMAN software. Only if the value remains below 5, the color tint is hardly noticeable.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.2 ms rise
↘ 15.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 41 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
48 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 77 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39 ms).

While the display is reflective in the sun, it should still be easily readable thanks to its good brightness. But since there was no sun during our testing period, we were unable to verify this.

Performance – Very good, but not top values

In the higher mid-range, Huawei often uses its hi-end SoCs from the previous year. In 2018, the Kirin 980 with dual-NPU gave wings to the Mate 20 and it also ran in the P30 from spring of 2019. Qualcomm's mid-range SoC in the Galaxy A80 and the Pixel 3a is unable to keep up with it. On the other hand, the Snapdragon 855 in Xiaomi's Mi 9 does not leave the lead to the HiSilicon Soc uncontested. Particularly in the graphical benchmarks, the Mali-G76 comes up short against the Adreno 640 several times.

The benchmark comparison between the Nova 5T and Honor 20 shows the effect of activating the performance mode. Both use the same SoC and 6 GB of RAM. While in the test, the Honor 20 performance was not measured in the performance mode, that of the Nova 5T on the other hand, was using performance mode.

* ... smaller is better

In none of the smartphones in the test, the storage can be expanded. Considering this in connection with the available image sizes of the highly resolving camera, less than the actual 128 GB would be insufficient, but this amount is okay. While the ranking when reading from or writing to the storage turns out a mixed bag, overall the Nova 5T delivered good access rates in the class comparison.

Games – The Huawei has GPU Turbo on board

The Kirin 980 masters current games without any trouble, particularly since Huawei's GPU Turbo is also included after the update to EMUI 10 in Version 4.0, in order to increase the performance of the Mali-G76 MP10, which is high anyway. In practice, the new "Lumia Saga" 3D MMORPG ran smoothly.

In the physics-based "OVIVO" game, a small ball is advanced to the next level very accurately by tilting and tapping of the touch screen. This also worked reliably and promptly. In the beginning, there were some small stutters we could not explain, but this did not happen again during the game.

Speaker

Pink Noise characteristics

In practice, the speaker of the Huawei Nova offers a solid impression. While the Honor 20 has stereo speakers, it otherwise produces similar results in the lab. In the higher frequencies, both tend towards a reproduction that is too bright. In this test field, the Pixel 3a and Mi 9 produce the best sound. Like the Nova 5T, the latter has only a single speaker, but the Pixel 3a has two speakers.

Battery Life – The Nova 5T lasts for a long time

Power Consumption

In the class comparison, smartphones with the Kirin 980 have a higher power consumption than other phones. Both of our Kirin models in our test field reflect this, using even more power during idle operation than the Qualcomm competitors. At least they remain slightly below the internal average, but they pale particularly in the comparison to the Pixel 3a.

Battery Life

In the end, what counts is how long they last – and that is longer for the Nova 5T than for the rest of the smartphones in our test field, even though the battery capacity of the Honor 20 and the Galaxy A80 is similar or only minimally smaller. The Huawei smartphone is able to remain online for almost 13 hours in our controlled web surfing test.

Verdict

Testing the Huawei Nova 5T. Test unit provided by notebooksbilliger.de
Testing the Huawei Nova 5T. Test unit provided by notebooksbilliger.de

The Huawei Nova 5T is a powerful smartphone with a lot of storage and a very elegant case. The fact that the camera is surpassed by the current elite of the cameras can be tolerated, considering the suggested retail price of 429 Euros (~$478). Also, wide-angle images and macro photography are additional features, that allow the Nova 5T to score.  

Everything is right in the Huawei Nova 5T: the hardware, the looks, and the price. 

With the exception of the recently added Midsummer Purple color variant, the street price of the Nova 5T has already dropped below 400 Euros (~$446), but it is still above that of the Honor 20 (about 330 Euros, ~$368). Those who want to save by getting the Honor 20 will have to make do without the improvements in the mobile communication that our Huawei review found, so the advantages should be considered carefully.

Unlike many techies, I didn't find my way to technology by using a C64 or something like that; I was rather fascinated by the last meter of copper wire, about which a friend on the other end of the line could be heard so crystal clear. I studied computer science and followed the development of the phone into a smartphone for many years. Currently, innovations are becoming less and less, but getting to the bottom of them remains exciting and interesting.
