  • Huawei recently unveiled the Huawei nova 5T smartphone, designed to offer an accessible premium experience.
  • Unless you are fashion-forward, a hardcore gamer or a social media user - this phone won’t interest you.
  • No one has time to marvel at a pocket-sized masterpiece.


Huawei recently unveiled the Huawei nova 5T smartphone and while its awesome that they managed to combine a unique aesthetic with trendy fashion and cutting-edge technology – we have some concerns. Besides its features that allow seamless social media use, unparalleled gaming on-the-go and jaw-dropping video footage, there’s really not much going for Huawei’s latest smartphone. 

Are you not convinced we know what we're talking about? Still considering buying Huawei’s new flagship? Here are 5 reasons why you really shouldn’t: 

1. No one wants to take amazing selfies

If you love having your forehead magnified on a selfie or applying a fake filter to each photo, then the Huawei nova 5T just won’t do the trick. Unfortunately, the HUAWEI nova 5T is the perfect partner for consumers who want to share authentic photos of themselves and their lives on social media. The 32 MP ultra-clarity camera captures minute detail with unmatched sharpness and the beautification tool is tailored to each user's unique face. This phone is great for content creators on the move – something nobody really needs, right? 

2. Who would want a phone that’s prettier than their other devices?

From Crush Blue to Black to the limited-edition Midsummer Purple, the Huawei nova 5T comes in three classic colours that will probably just steal the show from all your other devices - or friends. The Midsummer Purple edition even features the nova star symbol engraved on an elegant purple glass case, which refracts light to produce shimmering waves of contrasting colour and shadow - talk about hogging the limelight! 

3. Why would you need a phone that charges super-fast?

Everyone knows we live in a fast-paced world and sometimes we just need our phones to die mid-day so that we can slow down and disconnect. If you feel like you need to be offline more, the Huawei nova 5T will probably disappoint you because of its cutting-edge 22.5W SuperCharge. This feature will refuel your phone battery from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes and leave no time for you to miss a thing - so inconsiderate!

4. What type of gamer would want a hardcore phone with turbo processing abilities?

For years, PC’s have provided gamers across the world with everything they need: fast processing, great graphics and millions of wires. So why would any honest gamer trade that stability for a phone? The Huawei nova 5T sports the industry-leading GPU Turbo 3.0 which provides a full-frame gaming experience and reduces latency for slicker gameplay. The GPU Turbo also increases CPU and GPU processor performances and delivers an optimised EMUI experience. Thanks, but no thanks Huawei.

5. AI - for what?

If we haven’t convinced you yet that the Huawei nova 5T is probably not for you, then the word Artificial Intelligence will. From its automatic video editing features to its AI beautification algorithms, the Huawei nova 5T is AI-ridden to its core. You might appreciate the fact that the HUAWEI nova 5T comes equipped with an automatic video editing feature that is perfect for novices – so boring! Yup, there really isn’t much going for the new Huawei Nova 5T, we think you should skip this purchase entirely – you can leave them all for us thank you very much!
