Huawei nova 5T – The Cheaper Half Brother of P30 Pro

Huawei Nova 5T vs P30 Pro review Singapore price
Huawei Nova 5T is the cheaper P30 Pro?

You’ve been wanting to get the Huawei P30 Pro, but it’s a bit over your budget? Now you can get the Huawei nova 5T for a fraction of the price. You will not get all the features on the P30 Pro but I doubt that you will be using every one of them, so nova 5T might offer just what you need.

nova 5T packs a 32 MP selfie camera on the front and a powerful quad-camera array on the back. It also combines AI-powered image semantic segmentation and partition optimization technology with its rear 48 MP HD lens, 16 MP wide-angle lens, 2 MP macro lens, and 2 MP bokeh lens which can clearly present details in the photo and balance the exposure under all lighting conditions. And using the same flagship Kirin 980 chipset, the pictures taken with the nova 5T turned out to be pretty good even for low light shots. AWESOME!!!

Huawei P30 Pro night shot

The P30 Pro’s night shot is a bit more sharper and vibrant than that of the nova 5T. I don’t think most people can tell much of a difference. As long as you do not require the 50X moon zoom on the P30 Pro, I think nova 5T will do a good job for you too. Do note that the nova 5T’s rear camera do not have optical image stabilizer, so if you have shaky hands, your shots might be a bit blurry when compared with P30 Pro.
